Make Me Boxed Set Shoshanna Evers

Thank you, reviewers!

Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining) by Shoshanna EversI just want to take a moment to give a huge thank you to the awesome book bloggers and readers who have read and reviewed Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining). 

I know it takes time and energy to write and post reviews, and I am so grateful that you’ve taken the time to do so! I’m grateful for all reviews, good and bad, because once the book is out of my hands it belongs to you, my readers. Your opinion matters.

Here’s what some reviewers are saying about Beauty and the Beast on Goodreads:

5 stars! “Although I have read and seen many versions of Beauty and The Beast, there have been none quite like this. It’s still a beautiful story about discovering a person’s inner beauty and accepting them for who they are regardless of their appearance, but the love scenes are very arousing and sexy.”
~ Lisa M. (see full review here)

4.5 stars! “So…I will never be viewing Beauty and the Beast the same. Now all I’ll think about is how the Beast ravished/spanked/whipped/etc a (willing) Beauty while a prisoner in his castle.”
~ Brittney Marczak (see full review here)

5 stars! “Shoshanna’s reimagined tale is far more gratifying than its predecessors in that readers get permission to experience a sexual being, a sexual Beauty, with a sexy, kinky Beast.
~ Jade Onyx (see full review here)

5 stars! “I found myself reading and watching everything unfold in my head. And only great books do that for me. … It is one to keep with you, in your favorites pile.”
~ Tara Vose (see full review here)

Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining) by Shoshanna EversHere’s the blurb for Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining):

From bestselling erotica author Shoshanna Evers comes an erotic re-imagining of the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.

With her father’s freedom at stake, Belle agrees to be the fearsome Beast’s prisoner in his enchanted castle. Held as his willing captive, Belle must submit to the Beast’s most primal desires to survive.

The Beast can’t let his little Beauty go free, not while there’s still hope that she might be the one to end his decade-long curse…and with true love’s kiss, return him to the Prince he once was.

Their story is one that begins with imprisonment—he in his monstrous body, she in a dungeon—but without this predicament, Beauty would never have met the Beast.

So we shall begin with what occurred on that fateful night when everything changed: when a lover was betrayed, a man deformed, and a castle shrouded in an enchantment…

The Duke’s Lady by Brenda Jernigan

A MYSTERIOUS BEAUTY

An American spy with a British birth, Adam Trent, the Duke of Cornwall, is consumed with gathering information to use against England’s navy. But, despite the intrigues of war, the mystery of the lovely young woman washed ashore near his Cornwall estate is one he cannot resist. With the ragged remains of a treasure map concealed in her chemise and no memory of who she is and how she got there, the dark beauty is an alluring puzzle he must solve.

A LOVER’S SECRET

Fighting her powerful desire for the man who has sheltered her, Jewel Bona struggles both to remember her past and imagine what her future might hold. But when a British officer claiming that he is her uncle threatens to expose her to terrifying danger, she turns to Adam for protection … and passion.

A PIRATE’S GOLD

Fleeing to America aboard Adam’s ship, the two cannot deny all that they feel in each other’s embrace. But the shadow of war and a scandalous connection to an infamous pirate loom like a powder keg over their dreams of love–a love each will risk everything to keep alive…

Public Affairs by Cassandra Carr

Nate O’Halloran is a PR superstar, an expert in crisis management for his image-conscious celebrity clients. When his college roommate, now a hospital director in Buffalo, calls to beg for his help– a cancer researcher on staff has disappeared with millions of dollars’ worth of government research funds– Nate agrees to help right away, though this situation is pretty small potatoes for him.

Val Chase, the hospital’s PR director, is none too thrilled when Nate shows up; does it mean her boss doesn’t trust her to handle this mess herself? Against her better judgment, Val decides she and Nate have to work together to save the hospital’s reputation, though the explosive attraction they feel is making any actual “work” difficult…

The EX-Files by Cat Johnson

A thirty-year-old single lawyer looking for love. A twenty-something bartender who can serve up mind-blowing cocktails and orgasms. A match made in heaven.

As “Plain Jane” Dolan—what an ex once called her—makes her way through her little black book and the men from her past searching for the Mr. Right who got away, there’s another man who makes his way into her little black panties. She can’t deny he feels oh so right.

Gorgeous and much too young Damian serves up both tongue-tantalizing cocktails and mind-boggling orgasms and Jane finds her post-date sexual encounters with the tempting bartender completely irresistible.

But her soulmate is waiting and there are still more men from her past to re-date—or are there?

Olympus by Cat Johnson

Four stories of the naughty immortals of Mt. Olympus

Welcome to Mt. Olympus, where erotic pleasures reign supreme and the ancient Greek gods engage in games that have no rules.

Bacchanal
In vino veritas… The very wine that brings Dionysus his true love, also takes her from him. Will he interfere in the affairs of mortals to get Ariadne back, or will Theseus, his rival for her affections, betray the woman who saved him? Sometimes love is a labyrinth all its own.

Erato
Welcome to Mt. Olympus, where erotic pleasures reign supreme and the ancient Greek gods engage in games that have no rules. When the lowly muse Erato is unwittingly used as a pawn in Aphrodite and Eros’s vengeful quest against Apollo, can he emerge the winner of their battle? More importantly, will he lose his heart to the unsuspecting nymph Acantha in the process?

Eros’s Valentine
When the god of love and sexual desire finds himself bored with both, can a Valentine’s Day trip to the mortal realm and one woman cure him of his malaise and remind him of passions long forgotten?

Bliss
Psyche, Adelfa, and Bliss. Three beautiful sisters. Upon gazing at Psyche’s beauty, Eros, the God of Love, demands she be brought to his bed. Psyche has her own feelings about whose bed she’d rather be brought to, and it’s not that of the mysterious being who summons her. Led by Bliss, the three sisters hatch a deception. The truth will be revealed in the end, but will they all survive it?

Frost Bitten by Eliza Gayle

Resistance may be possible, but who are they kidding?

While on a search and rescue mission in the middle of a snowstorm, Seth and his twin Trent catch the scent of an unfamiliar shifter. Drawn to locate the source they hike deep into the woods to an abandoned cabin where they find an enticing little jaguar in the throes of heat.

Tired of being smothered by her five brothers and the pressure to mate, Daisy wanted nothing more than a week alone in the middle of freaking no where. The last thing she needed was a run in with two sexy as sin—and totally off limits—cougar shifters. Unfortunately, she’s not the kind of woman to leave them out in the cold.

Faced with the misery of unmet sexual desire or hot, no strings attached sex with two men… What’s a girl to do?

Hidden Passions by Emma Holly

Sexy fireman Chris Savoy has been closeted all his life. He’s a weretiger in Resurrection, and no shifters are more macho than that city’s. Due to a terrible tragedy in his past, Chris resigned himself to hiding what he is—a resolve that’s threatened the night he lays eyes on cute gay werecop Tony Lupone.

Tony might be a wolf, but he wakes longings Chris finds difficult to deny. When a threat to the city throws these heroes together, not giving in seems impossible. Following their hearts, however, means risking everything . . .

Love and Tattoos by Lissa Matthews

A few years ago, Brax traded in his suit and law degree for part ownership in his best friend’s tattoo parlor, Love and Tattoos. He hasn’t looked back. Inked from head to toe, full of business smarts, and an affinity for classical music and hard sex, he’s got life right where he wants it.

Until the woman he can’t stop craving comes home. She’s full of luscious curves, looks a little unsure of herself, and has taken to acting a little odd around him. Brax can’t help but wonder why.

The corporate advertising firm in Philadelphia that Annie buttoned up her carefree personality for has laid her off. Now, back in North Carolina, she’s trying to find her sparks again. Her career is changing direction, her sex life is nearly dead, and the one thing worth having in the midst of it all is supposedly off limits.

Brax’s cockiness and Annie’s own desire to for the tattoo artist, dares her to believe he might know her better than she thinks he does. And when he promises that he can help her find what’s missing in her life, she agrees to his little after-hours game.

The challenge he lays out comes with a few strings, the suggestion of stripping, confessions, and the temptation of ink. But, they’ve never been that close, so how could she possibly lose?

The Escape by Shoshanna EversThe Escape, Book 2 in the Pulse Trilogy

In Book Two of the erotic dystopian Pulse Trilogy, Jenna escapes New York City only to be tracked down by a soldier who might be her only hope of survival.

Jenna doesn’t know if she believes what Emily and Mason told her—that America is rebuilding and a better life awaits her outside of Manhattan. But with the power grid down and no connection to the outside world, Jenna will die if she stays at Grand Central’s FEMA camp, selling her body to soldiers.

Private Ken Barker is sent to capture Jenna when she escapes—but Jenna knows he’s one of the good guys and tries to seduce him into joining her. Their passionate sex kindles something even stronger than lust between them, and when Barker goes back to Grand Central he sees the horrors there with new eyes.

Now it’s his turn to escape the city, and he knows he must take Jenna with him or she’ll die at the camp. On the road, they’ll start a new life together, hoping against hope that the electricity between them will prove more than just a spark—that together they might finally light up their dark nights.

Barker couldn’t tear his eyes away from her full breasts, naked and so beautiful. It had been too long. God, how he wanted to wrap her in his arms and forget everything, for just one night.

No. Don’t do it. You can’t do it.

“Put your shirt on, Jenna.” He turned his back to her, confident she wouldn’t escape in the pitch-blackness outside the room, not with the way she’d clung to him earlier.

He waited for her to tease him again, but she didn’t. He heard the sounds of her putting her shirt on. The bed creaked when she sat on it.

“I must really disgust you,” she said softly. “I’m sorry.”

“No,” he said, swallowing hard. “You do not disgust me. Not at all.” He knelt down on the carpet and looked up at her pretty face. “You’re incredibly beautiful, Jenna. I want you, I do. But I refuse to take advantage of you.”

“I’m offering myself to you.”

“Would you have done that back in the day? Before the Pulse?”

“Everything’s different now.”

Barker got up and sat beside her on the bed. “Everything’s different, but I’m not. At least, I’m trying not to be.”

“See?” Jenna wrapped her arms around him, surprising him with the ferocity of her embrace. “You’re a good guy, Barker. You don’t want me to die. Don’t take me back there.”

Her body felt so good pressed against his, so right. Here, unlike the Tracks, they’d have real privacy. A bed. They could lose themselves in each other’s arms and pretend everything was normal, if only for a few hours.

“Are you hungry?” he asked. “I have food, in my bag. Water.”

“Yes.” Her voice sounded so small, like a child.

He pulled his bag on the bed and opened it. “I have a sleeping bag. We’ll use that as a blanket, okay? On the bed.”

Jenna smiled. “That sounds lovely. I haven’t slept on a proper bed in a long time.”

Barker smiled back. “I have two weeks of rations, because they didn’t know how long it would take for me to find you. We can eat until we’re full, if we want.”

“I don’t even remember what that feels like,” Jenna laughed.

He handed her two thick pieces of bread, and several strips of dried meat. It was chewy, but it did the trick.

They ate in uneasy silence. What would happen when they were done eating, and it was time to go to sleep?

He wasn’t sure how long he’d be able to resist her.

“Barker?” she asked, swallowing some water. “Do you miss your girlfriend? Is that why you don’t want to be with me?”

“I can’t even remember what she looks like anymore. Whenever I try to picture her face, it’s not quite right. So I don’t try anymore.”

“Why did you give me your ration that time?”

Barker shrugged. “Because I wanted to go to sleep that night, knowing you were sleeping too. Not—not being abused by one of the assholes who call themselves soldiers.”

“Sometimes I like it, though. A lot of times. Does that bother you? That I might like being a whore?”

Her long, unkempt blonde hair fell into her eyes, and he resisted the urge to touch her, to smooth it in place for her.

“I guess it’s better that way. Better than being like some of those other women. The ones who show up for morning rations with bruises. But don’t ever call yourself a whore again.”

His anger simmered within him. Fuck. He wished he could shoot the Colonel himself and take over, make everyone toe the fucking line and get their shit together.

Whoa. Where did that come from?

Something about this entire situation, being with Jenna, seeing her fear about being killed—it made him see everything he thought he knew about the camp in a different light.

Could he really trust the Colonel?

“Thank you for dinner, Barker.”

“I’m glad I got an opportunity to feed you,” he said.

“Let’s go to bed,” she whispered. “But . . . I sleep naked. Just thought I should warn you.”

Barker laughed, his mood considerably brightened now that his belly was full, and they were safe for the night. Alone. In a bedroom, with a bed.

And with a beautiful woman who was throwing herself at him.

“Fuck it,” he said, and set his rifle down on the dresser top.

He noticed her eyes follow his movements, but she quickly looked back at him, and grinned.

“Well, hello there. Glad we’re finally on the same page.”

She started to pull her own top off again, but Barker pulled her in close, and stripped it off for her, running his hands along her curves. Her hips flared out despite the lack of any extra meat on her, and he held her ass through her pants, his cock hardening.

“Fuck yeah, soldier,” she murmured against his lips. “Let’s do this.”

At seven o’clock, Melissa took a deep breath and rang the doorbell of James’ large brownstone. He opened the door and greeted her with a smile.

“Glad you could make it,” he said as he stepped aside so she could enter.

Ha! As if she had a choice in the matter.

Melissa nodded and dropped her overnight bag on the floor in the front hall. She hoped he didn’t notice that her hands were trembling. He was dressed in jeans and a black T-shirt that hugged his body, showing off his broad shoulders and impressive biceps. She hadn’t been sure what to wear, so she’d opted for a casual, short, flouncy skirt and a tank top.

“Nice place,” she said.

James shrugged. “It was my grandparents’. I couldn’t afford a place like this otherwise.” He smiled. “You look really good,” he said, taking her hand.

“Um, thanks. You too.”

James laughed. “That’s very kind of you, Melissa. But flattery won’t keep me from punishing you for that Rembrandt.”

Oh God, what did he have in mind? “Punishment, huh?” she asked as she sat down on the couch next to him. “I never took you for the kinky type.”

“No, you never took me for any type at all, I imagine,” he said smoothly. “But that’s going to change right now. Bend over my knee.”

Melissa stared at him blankly. “Are you serious?”

“As a heart attack.”

“I’ve never done this before,” she said, laughing nervously.

“You were never spanked as a child even?” James asked.

“No, my parents were into time-outs. But let’s not talk about parents. Kinda kills the mood.”

“Good point,” James said. “The time for talking is over.”

He took her upper arms firmly in his large hands, pulled her over his lap and held her there, but she wasn’t struggling. She couldn’t believe she had let herself get into this position—both literally across James’ lap, and the whole situation—being blackmailed over a stolen painting.

But not just any stolen painting. A Rembrandt. The Rembrandt. She felt James’ hand run down her skirt and caress her ass. He lifted her skirt up.

“You have a gorgeous ass,” he said, “but these panties won’t do.” He tugged her boy shorts off, removing her high heels and letting them drop to the hardwood floor. “I bought you a thong.”

He dangled a piece of flimsy black spandex fabric in front of her eyes before she felt him sliding the thong up her legs.

“I never wear thongs,” she said. “They feel like I’m walking around with a wedgie all day.”

James laughed and snapped the spandex into place, caressing her still-bare buttocks. “Well, you’re wearing a thong this weekend.”

And with that proclamation, he smacked his hand down across one of her ass cheeks, then the other. She gasped. She still couldn’t believe she was doing this.

Smack!

Then again and again, until her buttocks become warm with the sting.

“Hey!” she cried out as he slapped her especially hard.

Immediately, he stopped. He pulled her skirt down and lifted her up off his lap. “We need to get something straight, Melissa. You are here because you want to be. Because you are, in essence, prostituting yourself for the right to keep a painting that doesn’t belong to you.”

Melissa could feel herself blush. “I’m not a prostitute. I’m an art history teacher!”

James ignored her. “We had an agreement. A contract, if you will. You are mine to do with as I please for the weekend. And I will never tell a soul about the Rembrandt in your bedroom. I won’t turn you in.”

“I know—I just, I can’t be spanked like a child…”

James smiled wryly. “May I?” he asked as he reached his hand under her skirt. He slipped a finger beneath the tight thong that was soaked with wetness he had evoked in her. “Your pussy tells a different story, Melissa.”

Embarrassed, Melissa averted her eyes as he removed his hand.

“Your pussy is telling me not to listen to what you say,” he whispered. “Because you’re saying you don’t want this, and you’re lying.”

She could feel his eyes on her as she stared at her boy-short panties lying on the floor at his feet. Damn him. He was right. She did want this.

She’d been looking forward to this evening—with a mix of trepidation and excitement—since he had propositioned her last night. The whole idea of giving up control turned her on…and scared the hell out of her.

“How about this,” James said, and she finally looked up into his intense green eyes. “If you ever change your mind, you can just say our safeword, and I will stop everything, and you will go home. Of course, then I’ll turn you in.”

“Why are you doing this, James?”

“Because I’ve wanted to have you since I first saw you. And because you want me too—or else you wouldn’t be here.”

Melissa took in a shaky breath. She was going to go through with this, even though she was scared. She was also turned-on. “What’s the safeword?”

James grinned. “Rembrandt.”

* * * * *

James pulled her onto his lap so that she straddled him, and kissed her, letting his tongue enter her mouth, tasting her. She smelled delicious, as if she had just the tiniest drop of floral perfume on.

He fingered one of the curly tendrils of hair that fell against her shoulder, trailed his tongue down the curve of her neck and kissed the hollow of her throat, her pulse fluttering rapidly beneath his lips.

Having her here was worth being fired. He still hadn’t told her what had happened with that. No point in spoiling the mood.

He pulled her tank top down so that her bra was visible. She was wearing a red lacy bra that looked like it hadn’t been worn very often. He smiled appreciatively. Could she have worn it to impress him? This was a woman who was used to having the upper hand. The careful, organized professor. She probably had to be in control of everything.

But not this weekend. This weekend he was in charge.

He pulled one of her breasts up and out of the bra, running his fingers softly over her nipple before pinching it. She gasped as it hardened and he kissed it, rolling his tongue around her areola before sucking the whole nipple into his mouth.

She moaned as he took her other breast out of its confines and tweaked that peak with his fingers as well.

“You like that, do you?” he asked, the hard tip still in his mouth. “How about this?” He flicked her nipple with his tongue, then lifted his mouth from her breast to roll both tight buds between his fingers. “I’ve got a toy for these little nipples for later.”

Melissa’s eyes widened. James dipped his hand underneath her skirt again and ran his fingers under the thong and along her wet cunt. She was practically dripping. She arched her body forward, trying to press her clit against his finger, but he wasn’t ready to give Melissa her release. Not yet.

He yanked the spandex thong in an upward motion, snapping it against her clit. She moaned and stopped trying to press her clit against him.

“I wasn’t done spanking you, you know,” he said.

She bent over his knee immediately, without him even having to ask her. “Sorry,” she said, but she didn’t sound sorry.

He smacked her ass twice for good measure before standing up, pulling her with him.

She started to adjust her thong but he stopped her with a hand gesture. “Leave it,” he said. “I like knowing it’s riding up your pussy lips and your ass crack.”

“It’s uncomfortable,” she said, pulling the thong down.

“I think you’re trying to give me a reason to punish you.”
