**My item rating is for the story Sway only**

Exiled by Maya Banks

This was a DNF for me. The setup is this: a 22 year old virgin feels as though she has to fulfill an agreement she made with a Prince four years ago. He stepped in, paid for her mother's cancer treatments and put her through college. The deal is, when he calls for her, she must go to him and obey his every command. He summons her and she goes thinking she has no choice. The Prince, Xander, plans to share her with his three best friends, something they often do. Honestly, the story already lost me by about page 40. The heroine came off as being very weak and timid and I'm supposed to believe that because of this agreement, she'll do whatever is asked of her? I just couldn't buy it. Maybe as the story goes she gains some confidence and a stronger personality, but it wasn't enough at the start to make me curious enough to find out. 1/5 stars (202 pgs)

Sway by Lauren Dane

Lauren Dane has a way of writing relationships and friendships that draws me in every single time and makes me feel like these characters are my own friends. They feel genuine and come across on page as such. It was this was with her Brown Siblings series and she's done it again with Daisy and her tight knit group of friends all living on Bainbridge Island, outside of Seattle. Daisy is twenty-four years old and an incredibly driven person. She's an artist and helps run a gallery with her Grandmother, she does numerous odd jobs, mainly to help out her friends. She's smart, funny, caring and acts very mature. The maturity is a huge key because it helps her relationship with Levi, a forty year old attorney work.

Oh....where to start...I loved both stories in this anthology, but I didn't doubt that I would since it's two of my favorite authors.

Exiled, by Maya Banks was awesome! Again, Maya brought me to tears, in less than 210 pages! At first I was a little creeped out by Xander's infatuation with Talia, but it's all good. And honestly there were several occasions when I thought to myself - how can a PRINCE/KING of an entire country be such an idiot. But let's be honest - I would have happily run away to that island with Xander and his 3 cohorts FOREVER! So delicious. A HOT HOT HOT story that I enjoyed VERY much. All of these men treat Talia kindly, gently and cherish her with all their hearts....what woman wouldn't want that?? long as D/s AND group sex/menage doesn't bother you, run out and read it - HOLY HOTNESS!!

And Sway - Oh Lauren Dane - I LOVE YOU! And I love your characters!
So, if you've read her other series - The Brown Siblings (AWESOME AWESOME!! If you haven't read it, add it to your TBR pile immediately!!) - you have a little head start on this one because we already met a lot of the key players in the last Brown Siblings book. And honestly, I loved them then, so of course I was chomping at the bit to get this book! I am a fan of D/s, so for me, Levi was pretty HOT. And Daisy's sexual submissiveness is beautiful. It's great when a girl can be strong and sassy outside of the bedroom, but beautifully submissive in. I love how quickly the spark ignited between these two and just kept on burning. And man - the sex is hot between these two. I just loved everything about this story and can't wait for 'Tart' to come out....I'm so looking forward to Lauren's new spin off from the Brown Siblings - it's going to be HOT HOT HOT!

Format: Paperback
This duo of erotic novellas is a steamy and sensual read, perfect for those who like their romance spicy.

The first novella is Exiled by Maya Banks. This story features the virginal Talia and her four very hunky men. Talia is brought to an exotic island by Prince Xander and finds herself bound in a contract to be submissive to him and his three guards. Though Talia is a virgin upon her arrival on the island, it doesn't last long and she quickly submits to the men. She is drawn to all four men and finds herself falling for them one by one. I really like the way Talia struggles with her status on the island. She doesn't immediately think everything is fine and that sleeping with four men at the same time is no big deal. She berates herself for feeling the way she does about the men and struggles to come to terms with their unusual relationship. As soon as she starts to really feel comfortable everything changes and she is tossed away from Xander and the men. Although the relationship is unusual, Ms. Banks writes it in such a way that you know the feelings between Talia and each four men are deep and real like any other monogamous relationship. When Talia is tossed aside and sent back to France, I could feel her pain and her struggle to get back to some normal state of life. The relationship between Talia and Xander is the main relationship in the story, but I found the relationships between her and the other three men more interesting. They each have such different personalities and deal with her differently. The sex scenes are smoking hot and portray a great deal of emotion through them.

The second novella is Sway by Lauren Dane. I'm a huge Lauren Dane fan and couldn't wait for this "Delicious" novella. I enjoyed Daisy's story, but I wish it had been more.
