Rezension zu "Duck! (Avian Shifters) (Volume 1)" von Kim Dare

Love it.
Sakukovor 10 Monaten

Ori is a young avian shifter. Since he grew up in foster care he doesn't know what species he is, and won't know for sure until he can shift at his 21st birthday. And for avians, species means rank. The elders assume he's a duckling, one of the lowest species, so he has to take orders from everyone and gets abused constantly until Raynard, a hawk, sees the cruelty and recruits the boy for his own, new, household.
Soon Ori goes from servant to Raynards submissive and he flourish in the role. But when it is time for Ori's first shift not everything goes as expected.

This is an interesting world Dare has created. Usually I'm not a fan of fantasy with stiff caste systems like this one, but it kinda works, since the author doesn't really try to explain or justify it. Pretty much all the worldbuilding is like "That's how it is, deal with it". It's not the main focus anyway, which is good, since I'm sure there are a bunch of logical flaws in it.

That doesn't matter so much, since I just adore the hell out of the couple here.
Ori is really shy and insecure since he grew up in foster care, never fit in with the humans and after he found out he was a bird shifter, he just got pushed into the lowest rank, constantly abused and made sport of. He just wants to please everyone so much is kinda painful to watch.
Raynard is a lit aloof, but he's very steadfast, patient and understanding and he's trying his best to make Ori more comfortable in his skin.
It is really cute and heart warming how Ori slowly learns to find his own place. He doesn't have to learn how to submit, he's already got that down pat, but how to trust Raynard and to stop worrying. It is awesome how strong and secure Ori becomes then, and I think the author manages to really capture what a D/s relationship should mean and can be.

Rezension zu "Turquoise and Leather (Collared)" von Kim Dare

Flat and uninteresting
Sakukovor 10 Monaten

Marcus sees a young man dancing on the table that sparks his interest and he makes a move, but then he notices the collars, and backs off.
Now Eric pursues him, pointing out he's just wearing a necklace but doesn't belong to anyone. George is skeptical about playing with a novice, but he can't resist Eric.

Another mediocre short. I guess those books about club boys just don't really work for me.

George just was another totally exchangeable Dom, Eric was chatty to the point of serious second-hand embarrassment, but at least he had some personality. Georges "analysis" of Eric's "kinks" felt really cringy to me.
The sex didn't do it for me either, neither the acts nor the description felt inspiring. I mean, Eric supposedly has an oral fixation, yet the blowjob parts are written so short and uninteresting.

And then a collaring after a one night stand, that's just seriously silly. The act has no meaning, if the author just throws it around willy-nilly like that

Rezension zu "Once a Brat" von Kim Dare

Rather lackluster romance
Sakukovor 10 Monaten

Bret is new to the leather scene, but on his first day at the club he's seen Marcus and decided he's the Dom for him. That Marcus has been ignoring him for a whole month doesn't change that. Bret might be a chatterbox and not a very traditional sub, but he's sure if he just get a chance he can prove that he can obey and follow.

Well, it's pretty decent as erotica, though I found the romance rather lackluster.

The dialog was pretty cringe-worthy at times even though it often also funny, and while I agree with most of Brets thoughts on sub behavior, in the end I found him really way too pushy about the collar, and after such a short time, too. I also did not get where all his drama came from, especially the car scene was a mystery to me.
Marcus felt just kinda flat to me, just a regular, older Dom guy, not much personality, no background.

The sex was hot though, even though not really all that inventive or varied, but once he was really into it I did enjoy Brets inner voice during the scenes.
