    1. Both Admiral Keller and Blaise are attractive characters. Blaise's cockiness hid a vulnerability that I found adorable and while I did pause at the start of the story when the Admiral gave him a whack, the rest of the story was very different from that point on.Blaise, a privateer, found himself captured and given over to the custody of Admiral Peter Keller. I guess my mind was still recalling the previous week's posts about physical abuse between protagonists and I thought this was going to be [...]

    2. Totally hot read - definitely a guilty pleasure. No, it's not high literature. It isn't meant to be. But if you love hot, kinky sex with a dub-con/captor-captive plot, this is about as hot as it gets! It's also well-written, with lots of tongue-in-cheek references to sci fi and even the romance genre. The HEA is sweet, the sex is creative and hot as hell.One caveat: probably not for reading on an airplane, with someone looking over your shoulder unless you want to raise a few eyebrows!

    3. The concept of sexual tension is lost on this author. You are my prisoner so suck my Yeh, why not. Stupid book.

    4. The blurb is not only misleading but it’s not a good representation of a book that is entertaining and highly erotic with a BDSM kink neither too heavy nor overwhelming. Blaise Risner is a privateer that has turned to smuggling as a way to make ends meet when legitimate shipping fees became too much for him to continue legally. Blaise is caught when Admiral Peter Keller’s ship starts to crack down on pirates, blaming them for recent unprovoked attacks on planets, ships, and innocent scientis [...]

    5. 4.5 stars. For this BDSM fan, this was a really nice sci fi combo. We got domineering space commanders and pirates/privateers with submissive streaks. Peter could have come across as a real ass in how he used and discarded people if we hadn't been privy to his throughts. In the same way, the first half of this book could have come across as pure non con if not for us being able to hear Blaise's thoughts and how it was consensual for him (except maybe the first time which was more dub con IMO).Th [...]

    6. The Review:Honesty from the outset~I admit I prefer watching science fiction to reading it. *My name is Kris and I am a Trekkie.* The reason why is my brain totally switches off when an author gets too descriptive with techno geekness. Thankfully this was not the case with Hot Cargo and I was able to enjoy the sci fi theme for what it was.First things first~Call me superficial, but I have to say up front that the sex in this book is seriously down and dirty, rough and ready, hot. Granted there w [...]

    7. My question- why do women seem so enthralled with rape scenes involving men? Do they even consider consent issues while they are reading? This "romance" kicks off when one of the MCs arrests another for piracy. He has him handcuffed, jolts him with some electricity, and demands sexual submission. "Consent" involves the arrestee agreeing to go along willingly to avoid the pain and humiliation promised. At that point I stopped reading. Rape scenes in books are one thing. Romanticized rape scenes, [...]

    8. There were a lot of things in this book I was actually prepared not to like, even though I've never not liked an Ariel Tachna book and I very much liked "Something About Harry".First off, I've never understood or been engaged by the whole space-pirate-turned-sex-slave trope, and more times than not, that theme has caused me to close a book and never come back. Second, the fact that this is not the first time the main character, Peter has done this with a prisoner meant I was very unlikely to fin [...]

    9. 3.75 starsGood book about two strong-minded and strong-willed men. I have somewhat reluctantly put it on my dubcon-noncon shelf. However, even though Blaise is a prisoner and Peter is overseeing his captivity, there is an attraction between them from the start, so the sexual activity is not unwelcomed by Blaise. IMO it's just some good ol' kinky sex with some hot toys and situations thrown in the mix.Blaise and Peter did begin to frustrate me with their lack of communication, each of them assumi [...]

    10. I tried to like this book because I love both authors. I just could not like it no matter how much I tried. I didn't like Peter right off. I didn't like the fact he used his position to find his playthings. Another thing that bothered me was the fact a high justice knew and allowed it. I don't care about their "arrangement". Peter was upset when Blaise mentioned sexual harassment. In my mind, that's what it was. It should not have taken Blaise's birthday for him to realize he was being a jerk. A [...]

    11. I didn't love the way this story started. I'm not a big fan of dub-con/non-con but if I just go "la la la" and ignore how the sexual relationship between the MCs started then I could actually enjoy this story. I liked the sci-fi storyline and the sex was super hot.

    12. I am not sure what to think about the book. To me it was a hard read, being a PWP (I like BDSM but this was just too much, too meaningless for too many pages) which was followed by a long streak of dumb misunderstandings with a grand finale of utter mush. 1.5 stars.

    13. 3 Stars~~I think I would have liked it more if I skipped when they first metbut, because I did not do that the first few chapter's took me a minute to get into~in the end I like it, but, believe me this was a very rough start!

    14. Blaise Risner, the captain of a small cargo ship, was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Confederation Army is dealing with some nasty attack to their ship and space colony, and they blame the pirates, and so the attention is very high. In normal time, probably Blaise would skip the control, but now he is arrested for smuggling, piracy and other minor violation. Since he can't avoid to admit the smuggling crime, he tries to negotiate for the other two accusation and Admiral Peter Keller i [...]

    15. Okay plot with a sweet, slightly angsty romance and quite a bit of sexWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 8/10PROS: - Hot sex scenes (although the first couple are just a touch too coercive for me), including one particularly interesting one that takes place in zero gravity.- I like the fact that some of the characters are mated with creatures who are of different species, especially Peter’s human friend Ryan and his bird-like mate, Juo.- Just enough [...]

    16. There are three definite 'sections' in this book, I felt the first, being the purely sexual-driven encounters between Peter and Blaise (and the slow budding of a relationship that happens despite it), the second, being the action against the Gavenelians, and the third being the repairing of the damage done by the two previous parts.I have a feeling it started out as a smut-type novel and gradually branched out from there, for the better. I mean, it was hot and engaging in the beginning but the [...]

    17. Here is the thing - this book felt like two stories merged together regarding my feeling about it.The first part - I can appreciate the story as good in itself but unfortunately the first part of the was not my kind of reading preference. (view spoiler)[I'm just not into this bdsm-niche - not BDSM per se, but the humiliation and slave parts of it - It's just not appealing to me.(hide spoiler)] But to be fair as this did not define the plot as a whole and as I was still curious and intrigued enou [...]

    18. Wow. Okay. This was a real 180 turn in direction from the previous story.Healing in His Wings was sweet. This was raunchy and dubious in consent. (view spoiler)[I'm still confused about this bit because Blaise obviously enjoyed himself BUT it still came about through forced circumstances. (hide spoiler)]I have to say I liked this story more than the previous short story. This had a lot more going on. The encounters between Blaise and Peter were hot but it got a bit tiresome after awhile.Maybe I' [...]

    19. I went in to this with high hopesIt had all I could ask: a tortured Pirate heroa space admiralOuter spacewarspies and two writers that I really like.The ingredients for a great piratical space romp all lined up before me.I was so disappointed.I really liked Blaise and I eventually understood his need for pain to feel again (thsnk goodness he worked through that). BUT Peter is quite plainly a complete turd. He has a history of breaking men and having them prostitute themselves for him. His total [...]

    20. One of the things I love about Ariel Tachna's and Nicki Bennett's books is that in the longer books the plot is more involved. Unlike most m/m books where there's an ongoing romance, then some sort of quick challenge to the characters at the end of the book and then a HEA, this book has more plot than just the central relationship. The book is more involved and kept my interest. The sex is very hot, the characters are sexy and interesting, and all the plot lines come together and interweave nice [...]

    21. I really liked this book, though it started off written in an unusual style. Each paragraph switches to the other character's POV. It took a little getting used to, but it turned out to be a very effective storytelling style to get the feelings of the two men during the events happening. I especially like it when I realized it had been done on purpose. Each chapter was a sexual vignette and you were given hints to the great story arc that didn't really get going until about half way through, but [...]

    22. Space privateer Blaise Risner has been caught carrying stolen goods in the hold of his ship. He is brought in front of Admiral Peter Keller, who takes interest in the young pirate and offers him to serve his time on board his space ship " servicing" him instead of hard labor in the mines. Mutual attraction follows, nothing either of the stubborn men want to admit to. While I don't mind hot sex between two men I would have preferred that a bit more of the action took place outside the bedroom. To [...]

    23. It's a DNF for meMaybe someday I will try again. I didn't finish it because I read 10% and it was all sex scenes. I like erotica, don't get me wrong, but I didn't connect with any of the main characters after 10% of my kindle file. When this happen I just give up for a while and try again after I will seeW I don't even shelf it as BDSM because the spank scene and the D&S in my view wasn't at all BDSM. But it's my personal opinion.

    24. This book was a heavy on the porn, light on the plot. But not awful. Just know what you are getting into. Blaise is a space privateer. Which is apparently like a pirate, but not quite. Peter is the Admiral of the Confederation. When Blaise is arrested, Peter decides to make his rehabilitation a "personal" mission. Meanwhile the Confederation is trying to find the mysterious threat that is attacking innocent and defenseless planets.

    25. Hot m/m sci-fi romance in which a space pirate gets caught by an uptight admiral who has some interesting punishments for him. Total guilty pleasure read, couldn't put this one down. Developped characters, decent story, emotionally engaging with plenty of hot man-loving, also not as poorly written as many other books in the field.

    26. At the beginning of the book I was not sure if I would like it. I am not a huge fan of the captive/captor love story. However, as their relationship shifted I began to buy it and I really enjoyed the second half. I think it would have been nice to read the first book beforehand just to know that back story of two of the very side characters but it was not necessary. So, overall 4 stars.

    27. This is "good rape" romance.Basically, a man is arrested for piracy. Imprisoned and not able to escape, he finds that his captor is a sexual sadist. Threatened with extreme pain, he consents to sex to avoid torture.Luckily for the rapist, his victim so enjoys his mad skillz that they fall in love!

    28. I can't really say much about the book because I didn't get very far. I just couldn't get over the kitschy pseudo futuristic/sci-fi nomenclature to enjoy what is possibly a well written BDSM romance. Maybe someday, I will be in the right mood to overcome the details and enjoy the story. For now, this book is a DNF for me.

    29. So I wasn't able to like Peter. No mater what I just couldn't. Blaise was rather fun to read about, but stil whole book just wasn't for me I guess. I got bored before I even reached the middle and then read only to finish it.

    30. Oh hot! Oh, hot hot hot! Blaise the pirate is serving prison term under Admiral Peter Keller. And the Admiral likes to dominate Blaise as a sex slave. Blaise is loving it, yet goads Peter every step of the way. Fighting between them make the sex even hotter. BDSM kink.
