Holy Smokes Batman! LOL I thought the book cover was hot, (MAN!) that was until I read the story - I mean forget about being just hot, no, I'm talking body quivering with shattering orgasm hot. The story captivated me with the culture of the Roman times between the classes of slavery and how they gained their freedom through fighting which I loved the snippets of action in the book but also how women were treated during this time like they were possessions and in truth you could actually say they were almost slaves themselves in a way since they belong to their husbands and basically had no rights.
The female character Alba" "won my heart over as her eyes opened up to what a cruel and deceitful man her husband "Lucius" really was. She finally woke up to find out what true love really was and I was rooting her on as she found love and pleasure in the arms of the two gladiators Marcus and Caius. I also admired her because of the way she treated all slaves in general with respect and the fact that she finally found the courage to stand up to her husband Lucius and beat him at his own game by turning the tables on him in the end.
What is great about great stories like this is that there is always the evil villians and the heroic hero's who save the day and in this case I have to say that I literally felt like jumping in the story to help kick some serious assss. I didnt know I could actually hate someone so much as I did Lucius right hand slave Justinus - I mean the guy was a sneaky snake who would sell his own mother to get ahead. Another person I hated was the high society rich bitccchhh Hilaria who was a major sluttt and would probably screw her dog in public if given the chance.
However, the best part of this story was the two wonderful charming gladiators Marcus and Caius. Yes they were lovers before Alba and boy was it hot to read about the passion between them but when Alba was added to the equation the whole book ignited into a scorching torch of pleasure as both men worshiped her body so get ready for some one on one, some anaall action, some suuckn', blowin', Light BDSM, and my favorite 69 position while be hammered from behind.
I am truly a new and big fan of this author and look forward to reading more of her works. With that said if you are looking for a hot menage than I highly recommend this awesome book.
Lastly I would like to give a big thanks to my friend Jodie at Riverina Romantics for having this on her site and turning me on to this great read, those girls there read some great hot romances.
Alba is the wife of an upper class Roman Dominus, Lucius. When Lucius is presented with a business opportunity he can't refuse, he approaches Alba with an arrangement to help make it happen. She has to get pregnant. Lucius is sterile, so he tells her that he will pick one of his gladiators to do the deed. She's horrified. At first. You see, Alba has had a thing for their star gladiator, Marcus. When he returns her interest in the minimal way he can, she begins to obsess. She has no idea who her husband has chosen, as he comes to her wearing a mask. When her relationship with her husband begins to thaw (and really it had been for awhile), Alba fantasizes about a life with her gladiator, or at this point gladiators, plural. She's figured out her stud-for-hire is either Marcus or their second best, Caius. When Alba realizes that Marcus & Caius are actually an item, she's confused and fascinated. When word of a gladiator revolt reaches her estate, her husband forces her to their sea side home, and sends both Marcus and Caius with her for protection. I'm sure you can imagine where this is going.
To anyone that isn't familiar with Spartacus, the blatant sexuality and gore of My Wicked Gladiators would have shocked you at first. The rest of us would have just shrugged and continued on, popcorn in hand. This is a super raunchy book. If you're looking for vanilla, go elsewhere. This is some serious Rocky Road crazytrain. The only thing lacking here was BDSM, and given time it probably would have gone there eventually.
I enjoyed this book the way one enjoys a super sweet dessert wine - sparingly and slowly. Ms. Hawkeye takes the time to use the correct latin names for just about everything, and the historical aspect is a lot of fun. The raunch aspect can be a bit overwhelming if you let it, which is why I had to wade through slowly. The only thing that didn't really work as well for me was the first person narrative. The story is told from Alba's perspective, and though it works, I feel like we could've perhaps gotten more out of a a third person narrator.
If you're looking for a guilty pleasure read that will sweep you to another time, this is the one for you.
