Killian and Luxs story, hot hot hot, not for the young. Shifter romance with some BDSM. Loved it! I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own
Club Fray, 3
Killian du Pont is a regular Dom and manager at Fray, Melbourne’s premiere BDSM shifter club, but he only wants to play with one girl. A girl who craves pain over pleasure, soothing his beast, a gray buck kangaroo.
Problem: she isn’t his.
Emu shifter Lux belongs to no one. Her uniform consists of a collar she bought for herself, signature dark denim and a fluff of her own shifted feathers. Her loyalty belongs to her boss but her attention is drawn to Killian who irritates her with his overprotective streak but attracts her with his personal brand of dominance.
When Killian breaks through Lux’s edgy exterior, he discovers trauma and courage, but inner strength isn’t her weakness. Lux’s past haunts her to the club’s doorstep. Killian doesn’t know where Lux stands when Fray is threatened or if he’ll lose her just as he’s found her.

I yanked off both our seat belts, wound my hands around her waist, and pulled her onto my lap.
Her knees splayed over my thighs. I held her pinned to me with both hands tight on her tiny waist. She might fight me, but I wouldn't allow her to get away without one hell of a hissy fit. Hopefully, we wouldn’t get that far.
“Do you want me to slap you?” Lux employed the supremely disdainful voice that put her in good standing with the staff at Fray when she needed to ward off unwanted advances. Her hand rose to her throat, but she dropped her fingers when they touched nothing but air.
“I want to talk. Don’t fight me, you damn minx,” I muttered.
Two hands slid behind my neck. She filled my space in an instant, leaning the heat of her slim form close enough that if I flicked my tongue out I’d be able to trace the shape of her plump lips. Lips still swollen from my kisses before.
I hardened beneath her, cursing myself for bringing her so damn close.
I should have let her go home with the swan.
“Talk?” Her hips swayed over my prone body. Heat emanated from her core, and I realized the only things between us were my pants and whatever she chose to wear beneath that thin little dress, if she wore anything at all.
Suppressing most of a groan with limited success, I gripped her tighter, digging my thumbs into her soft, yielding flesh. “I hear my Little Bird likes pain.”
“It’s not a secret.” She tossed her head. Hair cascaded over my thighs, covering my hands. “But it’s something not every Dom can offer without … everything else.”
A growl rose in my throat. I forced that back, too, and leaned into her, running my nose along the slim column of her throat, across her jaw line. My lips grazed the shell of her ear as I held her close. “Does Rafe know?”
“What?” She jerked back like I’d slapped her. I kept her pressed to my chest, brushing my lips across the sensitive spot at the base of her throat. She let out a low moan and slid down on me. “Stop that.” Pain of a different sort crossed those stunning stormy eyes, glazed halfway between arousal and something else.
“Tell me, Little Bird. Let me help.”
“You can’t help.” She ducked her head.
When I thought I might have lost her, prepared to draw her back to me, she moved. Her hips undulated in a long, slow roll she repeated, grinding her hot little pussy over my cock in both directions.
“Fuck, Lux.” My groan tore from between closed lips.
I pressed her down onto me, offering no reprieve, and returned the favor, grinding my cock against her heat, finding every sensitive spot with the roughened seam of my jeans.
Her moans grew, slipping between us in a heady state of arousal while I fucked her with our clothes both on like a pair of teenagers on a joy ride full of summer flings and unrequited love.
Lux leaned into me, brushing her lips over mine. “Kiss me?”
I slid my hands up her back, beneath the glossy sheet of hair that covered her as she moved over me, slow and sweet, and drew her mouth against mine in the filthiest fucking kiss I could offer.
My tongue slipped between her lips, dancing with hers. Her mouth seared me, and I fucked it with my tongue, slow and exploring, then harder, faster until she worked her body in a frenzy above me.
Leaving one hand cupped behind her head, I slid the other between us. Grazing her cotton-covered nipples with my knuckles, noting their hardened peaks as I kissed her, I refused to let her up for air.
When I reached her waist, I flipped the hem of her skirt back and jammed my knuckles between us, working her clit through her panties, catching it between the hardened skin and bone.
She yelped, and I still didn’t let her back off, rubbing and pinching her throbbing clit, assaulting the bundle of nerves with everything I had to rip the orgasm from her body. She worked her hips in jerking motions, pulling away, then grinding back.
I broke the kiss, both of us gasping with need. “Come for me, Little Bird.” I dropped my hand from the back of her head and caught her ass in one broad palm, pinning her to me. No matter how she writhed, her body ground against my fingers or my denim-encased cock.
Her cry built until she threw her head back, mouth wide. A thin cry tore from her, and her body shuddered, bearing down against my hand. “Killian!”
Fuck me if I didn’t come in my jeans right then. My cock ached, throbbing as her sweet little cry echoed in my ears. Hot and flushed, she collapsed on my chest. I eased my fingers out of the cramped, folded position, opening them out to stroke the heat of her swollen, wet panties.
Her body shivered with aftershocks as I worked her in long, soothing circles where her engorged pussy lips pressed against my palm behind their barrier.
“Let it out, pretty girl. Let me ease that need for you,” I cooed in her ear. Liquid pooled at the corner of her mouth. I licked at it, and she found my mouth with hers on the end of another soft groan.
“You can,” I promised her, continuing my sweet assault on her tender flesh. “Let me give you everything, Little Bird.”
Let me take away their insults and hard words.
I worked her until she trembled again, and when she cried my name a second time, I lulled her into sleep against my chest, still stroking her cotton-covered pussy through a series of aftershocks as she pulsed against my fingers.
Overall not a bad story. Good heated scenes and a plot that really stands out. Good characters and a bit of suspense.
I really enjoyed this story of the shifter's BDSM club Fray. The story is about Liz and Killian. This is a good BDSM book and has some action, danger, intrigue and really steamy scenes. Liz and Killian are great characters and I enjoyed their journey to a happy ending. I can't wait to read more from this author. She's a new one for me.
Lux works at a shifter bar where she tries to avoid people by wearing her own collar. She's not looking to be in a relationship. However, Killian offers to be her Dom and give her a collar. She has some issues from her past that she needs to work through in order for her to accept what he's offering.
Really good BDSM and foreplay, some really scorching. I enjoyed reading the ups and downs of their relationship and seeing the personal growth of both main characters. The story is so detailed I felt as though I was a part of their lives. Especially like the picnic.
This book was a surprise to me, but a pleasant one. a shifter story and BDSM in one of my favorite genres in one. Killian and Lux's story is great she doesn't commit to anyone and is a free woman and Killian is a Dom and the manager of the club and only wants one thing and that is Lux. Will he manage to catch Lux? This is a hot and steamy story with a touch of suspense, if you like both genres then this book is definitely recommended and well worth reading.
A very suspenseful and heated story. Killian tried to keep his feelings for Lux hidden, but it didn’t work. They both got through each others barriers in their own ways. I’m glad that he was able to help her and that she wore his collar in the end.
The third book in the series, I found the second in an anthology and I really liked it. Although they can be read independently, it is more enriching to read the previous ones. At first the story is a bit confusing, but then the story becomes fluid, the characters have several edges that make them interesting. Steamy and with a happy ending.
This one was more fun and exciting than the eagle. I find the variation in shifters to be neat and it paints a great picture of diversity. Lux's story is frightening and heartbreaking, but she gets an amazing happy ending. My one balk at this story is that I don't get why Roo rejects her and then pines for her in the space of 3 breaths. Other than that, it was a fantastic read. I will add that Roo's crawling made up for his dumb@** rejection. Just sayin'.
Purge by Raven Hush is book 2 in the Club Fray Series. Y'all it was short, sweet and steamy! And you can bet I jumped onto my Kindle store and bought Darkest Desires book 1 because Purge was simply irresistible. Raven Hush, keep doing what you're doing because I love it! "I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own."
Purge by Raven Hush is book 2 in the Club Fray Series which I didn't realize. It seems to me that it can be read as a standalone, but you might be confused. The overall it's an intriguing bit of spicy. I really enjoyed the book overall and the world building and storyline was great.
Killian is a Dom and manager at club Fray, a BDSM club. He's also a kangaroo shifter. Lux is an emu shifter and a bartender at club Fray. Now let's just talk about these two for a second. An emu shifter and a kangaroo shifter, that's something I haven't read before and I loved that these were unique shifters that you don't hear a lot about. That was a lot of fun. Killian is a sadist and likes to inflict pain but only on willing subs. While Lux is a masochist who likes pain and is a submissive. They've never played together or done a scene together though. Lux usually plays with someone else that she trusts but she belongs to no one and likes it that way. Killian is very much interested in Lux but keeps his distance because he has a rule for himself that he doesn't play with those he works with but it's getting harder and harder to keep this rule for himself since he really likes Lux and wants to be with her. Lux had some secrets though and she keeps to herself for the most part and does her job. She doesn't want to get close to Killian because she doesn't trust others too easily because of something that happened in her past. When the trust comes out and we find out that some of the other shifters are racist against mixed breed shifters, it was sad. But I think it sent a really good message about accepting others for who they are and being nice to people because you never know what someone has gone through. Thankfully Lux has the people she works with to help her and be there for her. Once Killian breaks through the wall she's put up and they get closer and he finds out all she's been through, I was actually shocked. The violence that she went though isn't something I was expecting but the connection between these two was strong and Killian ended up being such a great guy. I loved him and how great he was with her. This story gave me a few surprises and I really liked that. The romance was sweet even though their brand of BDSM was a bit too much for me, it worked for them and the story.
Lux works at Club Fray as a bartender and only plays on her terms. Killian is a manger at the Club and his Dom side is lusting for Lux. Will Killian be able to break down her walls and gain her trust? Will her past track her down and can Killian keep her safe? Fast-paced shifter read with loads of drama, suspense, emotion and sizzling chemistry. I liked it.
I enjoyed the story even though the shifters are unlike any that I have ever read about. I really liked Lux and how the author gave her a strong sense of survival and will to live. Danger from the past is catching up with her and Killian comes to her rescue more than once. The attraction has always been there but only now do they act upon it. It is a good read, lots of action and intrigue. I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley and are voluntarily leaving a review.
This is the continuation of the Club Fray series. Each book is about someone different in Club Fray. Club Fray is a BDSM shifter bar. This book is about Lux and Killian. Lux is a bartender and Killian is the floor manager and also a dom. Lux wears a collar she bought herself to keep people away. The only person she plays with regularly is another bartender, James. This is because of something in Lux's past. Killian offers to become Lux's dom but she turns him down. The reason for Lux's troubled past ends up coming to the club. In the past Lux has always run because of what she is. Lux is going to have to learn to fight back for the ones that she loves. Then Lux may be ready to accept a collar and relationship from someone else.
I loved the first story in the “Club Fray” series so I was excited about getting the opportunity to read another one in the series. The story is a stand alone, quick and short read about Killian and Lux. These two have danced around their attraction but he refuse to cross the line with employee that is until one run gets crazy and over heated. Lux is an Emu shifter that has been left scarred in more than one way from her tragic past. He is a dim through and through. Their story is interesting, sad, thrilling and dangerous. Of course it is also hot, steamy and surprising. I love the characters and the shifters they think of as family. A very good read!
Who doesn't love a great combo?? This a great one-BDSM and Shifter with some great drama the Hero has to deal with too. This book is a really great book and a great addition to the series. When I read this one I hadn't ever heard of the author--now I have read this series--love this series as well.
In this continuation of the Club Fray series, Killian and Liz finally get together. They fit together even with all of their scars. With sexy hot steam and action throughout, this book is very good at keeping the reader engaged!! Great continued world building and dive into characters and their backstories!! Can’t wait to read the next installment of this series.
