Those Boys: The Dom is ON!

 

Domming your e-reader…from 7/21!

Domming your e-reader…from 7/21!

Alison Tyler‘s Those Boys officially launches tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited. (In fact, you can already buy the e-book from Go Deeper if you don’t want to wait for Amazon and B&N.) Alison Tyler is a powerful talent and we know how fortunate we are to publish her. Her voice is to-die-for (especially when she writes as Sandy, in my opinion) and her characters vibrate on the page–as does their sexual connection. Those Boys is a page turner that is very hard to put down. And it explores BDSM lifestyle and psychology in a way that we find as profound as it is enticing. Alison’s Those Girls, in fact, which is the first in the series, was an Amazon BDSM chart-topper that shot us all right out of the water.

We are lucky. Profoundly so.

And you know who’s even luckier than us? Sandy, the narrator of Those Boys. Sandy is “engaging, hot, and compassionate” (Jade Waters), and “Most books don’t come close to making me feel for a character what I feel for Sandy” (Karen Blue). But don’t take our word for it! The wondrous Jade Waters actually invited Sandy (well, Alison really, but then again…) onto her blog as a guest. Below is a glorious snippet, and you can read the whole interview at JadeWaters.com

Jade: OH, SANDY, SANDY, SANDY…THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME, AND FOR ANSWERING ALL MY QUESTIONS. LET US BEGIN…WITH WHERE YOU STARTED. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A DOM, AND HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE LIFESTYLE?

Sandy: That’s like asking a person how he or she got to be tall. Or blue eyed. Or Irish. I am a Dom because I’m a Dom. That said… there is a story to the beginning. At least, to the time when I decided to embrace what I knew lived inside me rather than try to fight those intense desires. I surrendered. Perhaps most Doms won’t admit this, but that’s how it was for me. I gave in.

You’ll hear all about my beginning in Those Days [the prequel]. It started with a girl—the way these stories often do. She slid me an opener. I grabbed it in my fist.

Jade: SO TELL ME—WHAT ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE MOST APPEALS TO YOU?

Sandy: Honesty is everything. Participants in the BDSM lifestyle are honest about what they want, need, crave, require… [Read more at JadeWaters.com]

Those Boys by Alison Tyler—Coming July 21!Other rave reviews of Those Boys:

From Tamsin Flowers, Malin James, Jade Waters of the awesome PillowTalk:

T: I love how fond he is of his subs – he’s not all about the just being bossy and in charge – he really cares for them and what their needs are. He’s interested in exploring their minds, not just in dominating their bodies. It seems like a much more balanced D/s relationship than most other fictional ones.

J: Exactly. And while we do see his need for dominance through his really rich commentary on what he’s doing, wanting, etc., it’s so clear he’s full of compassion and care – but not in a bunny foo foo weird kind of way.

M: Yes! His awareness is completely authentic – he takes his responsibility and control seriously. He is literally giving Rem and Vanessa what they need, and in doing so, he gets what he needs from them. I also love that he has a serious sense of honor. It’s not a typical moral code, but he has a hard, honest integrity.

Read the whole chat here. It’s gorgeous.

From A. M. Hartnett at TheBewilderedWriter.com

Having gotten a sneak peek at this story, I can’t tell you how fitting that gorgeous cover is. If you haven’t already experienced her dom, Sandy, please buy Those Girls immediately. Last year I thought I’d read the best erotic story ever in Alison’s Giving In, then I read Those Girls. Sandy will get into your head and never leave — and she’s writing a prequel! I hope this series goes on and on and on.

Speaking of Alison, I have a confession — and even Alison doesn’t even know this. She’s actually the partial inspiration for Brendan, the hero of Uncover Me. No, really, let me explain… [read more here…]

From Jade Waters at JadeWaters.com:

See, one of the main reasons Those Boys (and the novelette that preceded it, Those Girls) is so amazing is because of Alison Tyler’s authentic and rich portrayal of a true Dom. Did you catch us chattering about this on our Pillow Talk session on Tuesday? If not, here’s a recap—Tyler has made Sandy engaging, hot, and compassionate. She hasn’t made a two-dimensional stereotype of a Dom; instead she’s written someone who cares about his subs, and who is interested in exploring not just their bodies but their minds. Because of all of this, she’s done the number one most important thing that has made everyone stand up and take notice: She’s made him real…

From Karen Blue at Reviews@Hedovibes:

Sandy of Those Boys (and Those Girls) has become my favorite character. A dominant who knows exactly how to take them down, make them beg for more. Peacocks. Those Boys is about control, and submission. It is about desire and letting go. Sandy dominates so easily, he lets Rem get right where he needs him to be. The three characters in this story have more depth then most full length novels. This novella is flawed in only one way. It is too short.

I have only had Those Boys in my hot little hands for a few weeks, and already I have memorized some of it. I read a hell of a lot, like more than is needed or normal. I have too many stories in my head. This one is the best I have read all year, no shit. Most books don’t come close to making me feel for a character what I feel for Sandy.

Buy Those Boys from Go Deeper Press (available now), from Amazon (available soon), or from B&N (available soon).

In case you need persuading, here is an excerpt from “La Femme Chocolat” — the first story in Femme Fatale.  Author V. C. writes this dark fantasy beautifully, bringing the Parisian chocolate-seller who seduces women with her wares, to wonderful erotic life.  In this excerpt, “La Femme Chocolate” (aka Annette) begins to seduce the narrator:

“When she walked in, blood rushed immediately to my clitoris, causing it to swell, while the rest of my body buzzed with indescribable pleasure that I had never felt before until that moment. Annette was completely nude. I was hypnotized by the bounce of her gorgeous breasts and the sway of her hips as she moved toward me, holding a tray of four gorgeous, delectable, bite-sized cordials on a silver platter. My mouth gaped as she lay on her back on the long coffee table that was in front of me. Immediately, I realized that she was the table, and I was to dine on her new chocolates on her naked flesh….”

No need for me to tell you what follows.  I’ll just say that it’s sexy, voluptuous, and well-worth enjoying.  V.C. writes beautifully.  A tour de force!
