Kink Camp: Hunted


Kink Camp: Hunted by Adriana Anders is 99c! Big thank you to everyone who told us about this sale. I mentioned this on a previous Hide Your Wallet and seems like the perfect choice for just some quick, smutty reading. Have any of you read it yet?

A Secret Fantasy

You know that one thing you don’t tell a soul? For me, it’s a desire to escape, a need to run, to be caught, held down and…

That is what I’m afraid of.

And it’s what I want the most.

I’ve come here to find it.

A Primal, alone

I’m the crowned king of Kink Camp, the man everyone reveres…and stays away from. I’ve given up on finding a play partner.

Until fate steps in and I see her: The woman from my statue. From my dreams.

She’s innocent, alone, begging for things she doesn’t understand. It’s dark and it’s wild and it’s dangerous, what we both want. To be hunted…to hunt. To run, to take, to plumb the very depths of our souls in pursuit of so much more than pleasure.

But now that we’ve opened this door, nothing is the same. This isn’t just desire, it’s need. What started as a game has become real life.

And once she’s gone, I’ll be a man alone. A Primal without his mate.

I’ll still be king. But what is a king without his queen?

What happens at Kink Camp stays with you…forever
Kink Camp is a world apart, a place where pain is pleasure, hate can be love, and we are all our own true selves. Every act is consensual, every person respected—unless that’s not what they want. This book plunges you into the deep end, with consensual non-consent, forced fantasy, and primal play. Tread carefully.

Trade Me


RECOMMENDED: Trade Me by Courtney Milan is 99c! We ran a joint review with Carrie and Redheadedgirl for this one, way back in 2015. They gave it a B+:

Carrie: What a fantastic book. I don’t know where to even start with the raving. The dialogue is so good that I have to resist the temptation to just quote the whole book.

Tina Chen just wants a degree and a job, so her parents never have to worry about making rent again. She has no time for Blake Reynolds, the sexy billionaire who stands to inherit Cyclone Systems. But when he makes an offhand comment about what it means to be poor, she loses her cool and tells him he couldn’t last a month living her life.

To her shock, Blake offers her a trade: She’ll get his income, his house, his car. In exchange, he’ll work her hours and send money home to her family. No expectations; no future obligations.

But before long, they’re trading not just lives, but secrets, kisses, and heated nights together. No expectations might break Tina’s heart…but Blake’s secrets could ruin her life.

Sometimes I Trip On How Happy We Could Be


Sometimes I Trip On How Happy We Could Be by Nichole Perkins is $3.99! It’s also part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals. Both Maya and Aarya mentioned this in an August edition of Hide Your Wallet. I also love this illustrated cover.

Pop culture is the Pandora’s Box of our lives. Racism, wealth, poverty, beauty, inclusion, exclusion, and hope — all of these intractable and unavoidable features course through the media we consume. Examining pop culture’s impact on her life, Nichole Perkins takes readers on a rollicking trip through the last twenty years of music, media and the internet from the perspective of one southern Black woman. She explores her experience with mental illness and how the TV series Frasier served as a crutch, how her role as mistress led her to certain internet message boards that prepared her for current day social media, and what it means to figure out desire and sexuality and Prince in a world where marriage is the only acceptable goal for women.

Combining her sharp wit, stellar pop culture sensibility, and trademark spirited storytelling, Nichole boldly tackles the damage done to women, especially Black women, by society’s failure to confront the myths and misogyny at its heart, and her efforts to stop the various cycles that limit confidence within herself. By using her own life and loves as a unique vantage point, Nichole humorously and powerfully illuminates how to take the best pop culture has to offer and discard the harmful bits, offering a mirror into our own lives.

What It Takes


What It Takes by Shannon Stacey is $1.99! This is book ten in The Kowalskis series. I remember Sarah really loving this series, though not sure how far she made it along. I feel like these books are pretty character-focused and aren’t too high on the angst meter.

Revisit all of your Kowalski favorites while falling in love with a brand-new romance in this reunion novel from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey

Laney Caswell is looking for a change. A decade’s worth of less-than-happy matrimony behind her, she wants peace—movies, books and, best of all, a new job at the Northern Star Lodge in Whitford, Maine. Spending the summer living in a camper is her chance to rediscover what makes her happy, and a perfect transition to her new life.

Being a paramedic in Whitford is nothing like Ben Rivers’s city life, but when Josh Kowalski offers him the job, the lure of his hometown is too much to resist. Also too much to resist: Laney Caswell. Ben always thought he’d have a wife and kids, a happy family like the Kowalskis have all built, but he never made time in his life. Now he’s found a woman who draws him like no other and helps him dream again—and the last thing she wants is a husband.

When the annual Kowalski family camping trip is moved to the Northern Star, both Ben and Laney are surrounded by the kind of happiness they’ve always wanted but never had. It just might be theirs—if they can put aside the past and reach for it together.
