Ship He takes Bailey to the Boulevard Club so she can see what he would expect of her should they become sexually involved Sebastian enjoys tying his bed partner up and likes to administer erotic spankings Bailey is sassy and gives as good as she gets While the sex between those two is hot she fights Sebastian when he pushes for Bailey s mother has been married four times and always was dependent on the men for her financial security Bailey does not want to be like her mother and rather be independent without tiesThese two were hot the sex scorching I loved that Sebastian always told her to let him know if he hurts her or if he wants something from her that she is not comfortable giving Friends With Benefits is the seuel to the very hot Maverick s Black Cat where we first meet the smart talking Bailey and the serious Sebastian with the hidden kinky side This book was a very well written sexy read that really drew me into the characters and their story plus delivered some very hot sex scenesBailey is an independent woman who knows what she wants in life and what she wants right now is some hot sex but she isn t satisfied with the brawny self centered men she normally dates So she decides she should have sex with her friend Sebastian because he is totally different than her normal men loyal kind of uiet and a good guy Sebastian was attracted to Bailey but only treated her as a friend because that seemed to be best for them When she tells him her plan for them to be fuck buddies he is less than pleased He doesn t appreciate the casual way she wants to use him plus he doesn t think she can handle the way he is in the bedroom a dominant man who likes to spank and occasionally tie up his lover So he teases Bailey to the point where she is about to get off then leaves her hanging She is pissed but very intrigued by this new side of BastianBastian gets Cat to invite Bailey to a local club so she can see what he likes in the bedroom In a private room along with Cat and Mason Sebastian sits with Bailey as they watch another couple do what he likes in the bedroom a little spanking then some fun Bailey is surprised by how much she enjoys watching it and is even suprised to look over and see Mason and Cat having a little fun too Things get hot and heavy between Bastian and Bailey but the intensity of the love making scared Bailey so she doesn t talk to him for a few days since she has a tendency to run from emotions she can t handleSebastian and Bailey start to work out a relationship of sorts that centers on their intense attraction for each other Sebastian loves to control in the bedroom but he never takes it too far and he is always making sure Bailey is comfortable Bailey is one hilarious strong woman so she can take whatever Bastian dishes out usually with a funny uip back at him She can accept his spanking and dominance in the bedroom but she uip back at him She can accept his spanking and dominance in the bedroom but she a big problem with him trying to have a deeper relationship with her Bastian has intense feelings for Bailey but can she overcome a lifelong fear of relationships and dependence on a man in time to accept the love Bastian has for herThis story was wonderful I was laughing at times and needing a class of ice cubes at others The relationship between Bastian and Bailey was very believable and well written Bailey s fear of relationships was a result of seeing her mother go through four marriages while using men to fund her lifestyle so I can understand her reluctance to accept money from Bastian and her fear of admiting her feelings even to herself Bastian was one of those uiet strong men who has a hidden kinky side that made him want to spank Bailey and screw the heck out of her He was very skilled with his mouth and not at all selfish so I can understand Bailey s intense pleasure at his hands The
Spanking And Dominance Did and dominance did all selfish so I can understand Bailey s intense pleasure at his hands The spanking and dominance did not too far he mostly just uses his hand and a little bit of tying up Bastian was very sweet with Bailey he tried to be sensitive to her needs and feelings but he also knew he would have to push her a little bit so she didn t treat him as casually as she did her other boyfriends He did one or two dumb things that pissed Bailey off but he honestly was just being a guy and they can t really help it right One thing about the story that is just not a big deal and I am glad Bailey is African American and Sebastian is white but it is never a big deal Bastian justs sees her as an incredibly sexy womanOverall I really ejoyed this story It was emotional sweet funny and sexy as hell at times This story includes some spanking a little bit of bondage two couples doing it in the same room so voyarism but no touching by the other couple do ou think Mason or Bastian would share anal a toy and one hilarious scene where Bailey accidently walks in on Bastian s lawyer co worker getting a blow job and she notices that he has the biggest dick she ever saw they don t call him Big Phil for nothing Highly recommended but read Maverick s Black Cat by Lena Matthews and Maggie Casper first both are hot wonderful reads. Fining the terms of their new relationship While Bailey may be looking for a friend with benefits type of relationship she'll learn the hard way that if she wants to play she'll have to do things his way And Sebastian doesn't play nice for anyone Note While this is a stand alone novel we recommend reading Maverick's Black Cat firs. ,
T friend next to Cat But when this tiger is turned loose He Becomes A Jealous becomes a jealous dom with a kinky spanking fetish Sebastian exudes an air of confidence that s close to bordering on cocky but not uite I simply found him too endearing for that The authors also gave him a wicked sense of humor and a touch of vulnerability in the way that Bailey touches his emotions so deeply that he sometimes looses his carefully planned control He was even the first to say I love FRIENDLY ENEMIES you even though she didn t hear him I adored his protectiveness and need to take care of her in a kind of old fashioned I m the manou re the woman sort of way even before they were intimately involved and he does take care of her uite well in ways than one I also loved that his dominating behavior was never intimidating to me and the spankings were never ever intended to hurt or humiliate Even when he was punishing Bailey his love and deep desire for her still emanated from the pages All in all Sebastian was just too scrumptious for words and has definitely earned a spot on my favorite heroes listBailey is a strong stubborn lady with commitment issues Normally a romance heroine who has slept around uite a bit and is forward enough to proposition her best friend when she can no longer bear her sexual drought would irritate me but Bailey never did I think the authors did a wonderful job of conveying Bailey s fear and confusion over the feelings that Sebastian stirs up within her and with giving her a good reason for her reluctance to commit Every time Bailey got riled up at Sebastian for some small thing I thought she might cross that annoyance line for me but then the authors would show some of her deeply buried vulnerabilities and I would realize that she was simply scared out of her mind by what he was making her feel Sebastian s patience finally won the day chipping away at her defenses to expose some of her soft spots and then soothing them with his love I also liked that in the beginning when Sebastian begins revealing his kinks to her she is confused and wary but also spunky enough to be fascinated by it all and revel in the sexual freedom she feels with him Overall Bailey was a very relatable heroine who I really enjoyedI think one of the things that made Friends with Benefits such a wonderful story was all the great relationship dynamics I liked that the authors took the time to address the race issue and show just a small taste of the difficulties Sebastian and Bailey might face as an interracial couple Friends to lovers is one of my favorite romance themes and here the friendship was a very palpable thing I loved the way this couple teased and bantered with one another The hero and heroine of a romance butting heads and exchanging barbs is another thing I usually find grating but here I loved it and found it to be utterly endearing i also it to be utterly endearing I also enjoyed how they could talk and laugh and simply share things It was definitely a true friendship in the deepest sense of the word that made them falling in love very believable I also liked Bailey s friendship with Cat and her closeness with her mom The dialog she shared with both of them was breezy fun We don t get to see as much of Sebastian s guy relationships but his other best friend Mason played a strong role in the story too Friends with Benefits is the second and I had originally thought last book in The Boulevard series with the first being Maverick s Black Cat which had featured Mason and Cat as the hero and heroine However after reading it I can say that the ending definitely left open the possibility of another story Sebastian s law partner Phil and Natalie the owner of The Boulevard fetish club and one of Sebastian s clients were certainly admiring each other from afar and obviously wanting Even though Phil was a bit too smooth for my taste Natalie caught my attention so I wouldn t mind reading their story if the authors ever decide to write it I was also hoping to see of Sebastian and Bailey in their book much like I did Mason and Cat in this book but sadly I don t know if that will ever happen It has been close to five ears since Friends with Benefits was first released and neither Ms Matthews nor Ms Casper have any announcements of another book in the works on their websites Even if this does turn out to be the end for The Boulevard it was a fabulous way to go out Friends with Benefits will always have a well earned spot on my keeper shelf and I ll look forward to checking out the authors other worksNote This book contains explicit language and sexual situations including mild dominationsubmission spanking use of a sex toy and anal sex which some readers may find offensive This is the seuel to The Maverick s Black CatBailey and Sebastian have become best friends Bailey is disgusted that all the guy s she is dating leave her unfullfilled She propositions Sebastian to become her occassional lover Sebastian is attracted to her but is insulted that she would find it easy just to use him for sex and not a relation. Mitment What could a girl ask for Sebastian Emerzian isn't sure what to think when his female best friend propositions him He's already resigned himself to a friends only relationship with Bailey despite his long held desires for Sebastian is than willing to turn up the heat as long as the headstrong beauty understands he'll be de.

keep shelf Bailey is such a smart ass This is hot sex on a platter end of story Reallyshelf Bailey is such a smart ass This is hot sex on a platter end of story Really it D This is book two in a series You can read them as standalone but it recommends that ou read MaverickBlack Cat first and then ou will will understand this story better In the first story this couple are best friends with first coupleI loved both stories Bailey Sebastian s Story BRAB Online Book ClubBailey and Sebastian s story is all about two friends who decided that they wanted a little from the relationship One that includes sex except Bailey wanted a casual relationship while Sebastian wanted a committed relationshipMild BDSM some off the wall sex scenes is the gist of this book It was just an Okay Read For Me 325 Stars Bailey read for Me 325 Stars Bailey And Sebastian Emerzian Had Been Close 325 stars Bailey and Sebastian Emerzian had been close for close to a ear and for the past six months of that friendship they went out for dinner watched home movies together or generally hung out because neither was in a relationship Bailey decided to seduce Sebastian and propose to him that they add sex to their repertoire aka friends with benefits Sebastian declined because he wanted a permanent and a meaningful relationship that included really kinky sex and not the vanilla verity that she was use to From that point the story was all about the benefits part and none of the romantic interaction expected from a romance story With a Mom that changed husbands like basketball players changed socks Bailey Edwards view on realtionships isn t one that includes a happily ever after But a girl still has needs right Liked this one a bit better than the previous book in the seriesBailey has a smart mouth and a big heart She also has a crippling fear of commitment because of the example of her much married motherSebastian and Bailey met in the previous book Maverick s Black Cat set up on a blind double date with that couple They hit if off immediately but the possibility of romance is not there The steam pressed lawyer Bastian is simply not one of the Bailey s types She likes them big muscly and pretty She also likes guys she can leave without a backward glance However the two of them strike up a great friendship and often hang out togetherLately though her regular types just aren t doing it for her After six months of enforced celibacy Bailey is ready to do something drastic She asks her best bud Bastian if he d want to be her fuck buddySebastian is insulted He d love to get with Bailey but not as a tissue she can discard when she is done And although he appears to be a straight laced buttoned up lawyer he really isn t He has certain bedroom preferences that he isn t sure Bailey can handle despite her sexual bravadoSo he decides to invite her to a local festive club and introduce her to his interests It is an eye opener for Bailey who finds that she just can t resist this new side of SebastianJust as in the previous book the dialogue is what really stands out Bailey and Sebastian snipe argue tease and joke so well and so naturally of course these two are destined to be together The explicit sex scenes are smoking hot but the relationship between Bailey and Sebastian is what makes the book so enjoyableHopefully the next book will be Big Phil and Natalie s Reviewed for THC Reviews Friends with Benefits has now taken over the top spot for my all time favorite erotic romance Forget content warnings This book should have come with a health warning While reading it I found myself literally short of breath and light headed than once It had me feeling like I might spontaneously combust while simultaneously melting into a puddle of goo This friends to lovers story had a surprising amount of emotional depth and a pretty decent plot for an erotic novel I ve discovered that erotic authors often have a tendency to put in just a few too many sex scenes leaving my interest waning by the end but that definitely wasn t the case here I was fully engaged from beginning to end because all the intense scorching hot love scenes were interspersed with a good balance of great outside the bedroom scenes between the hero and heroine as well as their interactions with the secondary characters In fact the one and only thing that wasn t uite my cup of tea was the group sex scene Aside from that everything made for a superb read that left me hot and bothered emotionally enthralled and wishing the story were longer so that I wouldn t have to say farewell to Sebastian and BaileySebastian was almost sheer perfection in a romantic hero for me I know it might sound strange but occasionally I can tire of all the gorgeous men in romance novels Sometimes I just long for a hero who seems a bit attainable and Sebastian fit that bill perfectly He is without a doubt attractive but in a subdued way Bailey describes him as cute rather than all that Hollywood hotness he wears glasses and he s average in height I absolutely loved this dichotomy By day he s a relatively mild mannered attorney and Bailey s safe always dependable bes.
