But my dogs kept trying to eat their Cup of Noodles council caps when I was trying to take their picture, so... Anycray! This book. I am loving me some Fiona Davenport lately. Like, a lot. Like Alexa Riley books, this ain't Gone With the Wind. It's straight up smut, with a ridiculous story line, and an OTT alpha male whom - if you were to actually meet him in real life - you would be running to the court house for a restraining order faster than Lindsey Lohan can chug a beer. But in my romance? And if you like smut like I do, you will too. Find me at

    OTT alphas, especially ones that do stuff that in "real life" would have you running to your nearest police station, are like catnip to me! So it's no surprise that I ADORED this book! Caleb was awesome, and he even had me laughing out loud on a couple occasions with his antics! Madeleine was also a great character, even if it took her a bit longer to get on board with Caleb's agenda. It's a short book so the story moves quickly, there really isn't any over the top angst.

The story was about Caleb (I didn't know his age) and Madeleine, 22. Caleb already wanted her the first time he saw her. He's a billionaire and had the biggest publishing house in the country. Madeleine took over as the CEO of their family publishing company after her father had a heart attack. She's busy trying to save their almost bankrupt company. Caleb did everything to have her, eliminating the choices she may have to save the company. He did it so his help will be the only choice she had. She needed to work with him for a year. So she worked with him and he managed to make her spend her time with him. When they went to Paris, he took her to beautiful places and when he gave her something, she got scared and flew back home leaving Caleb in Paris only to regret it after. But Caleb didn't let her go. And yes, they had their HEA with an epilogue that I liked! Safety: (view spoiler)[No cheating. No love triangle. No OM drama. There's a light OW/OM drama. But for some, this may be a slight OW drama: his secretary wanted to sleep with him but nothing happened. Caleb defended and protected Madeleine. No abuse. No push and pull. No condoms used since he wanted to knock her up. Both were not virgins. He's celibate since he first saw her(6months before she started to work with him) and no details about her past sex life, just that her experience was limited. There's also light BDSM: bondage, spanking and nipple clamp. (hide spoiler)]

    Holy cow. I love me a possessive caveman but this dude was intense. I blinked and the story was over! Everything happened so fast! The H managed to get her knocked up, moved in, and engaged to him in a month. A MONTH. Meh. But whatever, its unrealistic smutty fiction and I love it :) Holy cow.

    This was a short and fun OTT alpha story. Enjoyable, but nothing to write home about. But I plan to read more from this author as these are super low/no angst and short and easy to read.

    OTT, possessive hero...mmmmhmmm just how I like 'em! He did everything the way I wanted. I loved how he was obsessed and his methods for obtaining Madeleine were a little...let's just say slightly ruthless. I wanted to eat him up! He was also very romantic...Paris *sigh* I will definitely be reading more of this author. Yes, like most of my fellow Safety Gangers, I hated hearing about his past experience but it was just a blip on the radar of his true awesomeness. OTT, possessive hero...mmmmhmmm just how I like 'em!

    3 1/2 stars This book is the definition of over the top and I loved how possessive the hero was but I wish we had gotten more story. I loved both the hero and heroine but I wish I had connected with them a little more, and having this story a little longer (I think)would have made that possible. But this book was fun, fast, and very steamy. This is the type of book that is just fun, and I enjoyed it, and I'm interested to see where this series goes. 3 1/2 stars This book is the definition of over the top and I loved how possessive the hero was but I wish we had gotten more story.

    I have a read a few of Fiona Davenports short reads now and this one just did not do it for me. Maybe my head is in a fucked up place after the events of this weekend in Orlando or maybe I just wanted something a bit deeper and darker. Granted, I know what to expect when I read Fiona Davenport. Its going to be quick, dirty, completely unrealistic, alpha-male to the max and submissive heroines. None of that bothers me because it is what it is and when Fiona gets it right, its fucking awesome. Pen I have a read a few of Fiona Davenports short reads now and this one just did not do it for me.

I felt like this was a skimmed-down version of what it could have actually been. Even though its a short read (legit could read in about 20 minutes if you have no interruptions) I still wanted some meat to the story. I guess you can't win them all :) On to the next!

Strangely, he could have tried saying "Hello" first, you know, since they hadn't been introduced yet. I guess that was a little too much for him however.

Penalty Clause (and the whole Risqué Contracts series) are more of these baby/pregnancy/breeding books. Which means the reader is treated to little tidbits like this: “You’re mine, Madeleine. This pussy will only ever feel my cock inside it from now on, only my tongue devouring its nectar, and only deliver my babies.” -location 385 “Why in the world would you tell her I could be pregnant?” I asked while standing up to face him on a more even level. Caleb practically growled his response. “Because I’ve fucked you bare about a dozen times in the last two days, filling you with as much of my come as I possibly could in hopes that you would be.” -location 656 “No, Madeleine, you’re not,” I gritted out. “You missed your doctor’s appointment. Your body is ripe and ready for me to plant our kid inside you. Make no mistake, baby, if I haven’t already, I will have you pregnant as soon as humanly possible. And,” my voice hardened, along with my cock as I imagine her naked body with a rounded belly, “you can expect to stay that way for a while.” -location 669 So. The entire "Contract" was BS in my opinion. Because that's a shitton to do when you could start by asking the damn girl out. Fucker. Also, I was not a fan of the rope play - it felt poorly researched and no where near as hot as the Shibari in Craving Flight . Regardless, it was rather interesting.

Caleb Sterling is a handsome, successful, billionaire businessman. He saw Madeleine at a charity event & has been planning a way to make her his ever since. He doesn't just want her for one night either, he knows she is it for him, now he just has to convince her. Madeleine has taken over her Father's business unaware it is bankrupt. Caleb seizes this as the perfect opportunity to sweep in and save her company but he has a few stipulations of his own. CALEB'S QUOTES ; "FUCK, BABY. YOUR BODY WAS MADE FOR MINE. YOUR HOT LITTLE PUSSY IS CRADLING MY COCK, A PERFECT FIT. IT'S GOING TO GLOVE ME JUST RIGHT, SUCKING ME INTO YOU, BEGGING FOR THE HARDEST ORGASM YOU'VE EVER HAD." "YOUR PUSSY IS GORGEOUS, BABY. SOAKING WET AND SO NEEDY. I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT TO FEEL YOU FALL APART ON MY TONGUE. " CALEB'S THOUGHTS : The first long lick from bottom to top had her flavor exploding on my tongue. It was even sweeter than it had been on my fingers. I was instantly addicted and dove in to eat her with vigor. CALEB'S QUOTES ; "YOU'RE MINE, MADELEINE. THIS PUSSY WILL ONLY EVER FEEL MY COCK INSIDE IT FROM NOW ON, ONLY MY TONGUE DEVOURING IT'S NECTAR, AND ONLY DELIVER MY BABIES." "THAT'S RIGHT, BABY. SQUEEZE THE FUCK OUT OF MY COCK. I NEED YOU TO LET GO, MADELEINE. LET GO SO YOU CAN TAKE EVERYTHING I HAVE FOR YOU. I'M GOING TO BURY MYSELF SO DEEP INSIDE YOU, PLANT A PIECE OF ME, AND MAKE SURE YOU BELONG TO ME FOREVER. " "YOU KEEP SQUIRMING LIKE THAT, MADELEINE, AND YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF FUCKED SO HARD, YOU'LL BE WALKING FUNNY FOR THE REST OF THE DAY." "OH, BABY. LOVE ISN'T A STRONG ENOUGH WORD FOR WHAT I FEEL FOR YOU. FROM THE FIRST MOMENT I SAW YOU, I KNEW YOU WERE MINE. THE WOMAN I WAS MEANT TO MARRY. THE MOTHER OF MY CHILDREN. I'M ABSOLUTELY, IRREVOCABLY IN LOVE WITH YOU." "YOU'RE SO TIGHT, BABY. YOU FEEL LIKE SILK. FUCK ! I NEED TO TASTE YOUR BEAUTIFUL TITS." CALEB'S THOUGHTS : I was large to begin with, but her pussy was so tight, it clamped down, squeezing my dick. It took all my control not to cum like a fucking teenager with no stamina. I crashed into her one last time and groaned as I felt myself reach all the way to her cervix. While exploding inside her, jets of hot semen coating her, hopefully embedding deep. I whipped out my cock, shoved her panties aside and slammed into her slick pussy.
