Erika Wilde The Marriage Diaries vol 1-4
I rarely wear my husband out, but the last day or two we’ve been like rabbits! Why? Because I read the Marriage Diaries by Erika Wilde. Holy Hotness! This series is everything a short hot novella series should be. I swear, the author was IN MY HEAD, reading all of my fantasies! I have been married over 20 years, and I just loved reading about a hot as hell, sexy couple that was in a long term marriage as well.
First off, let me tell you, there are two ways you can buy this series. The box set for $3.99 or individually. I will give a little mini review of each, with an overview, and you can decide how to buy it.
The Awakening: The Marriage Diaries 1: Currently FREE on Amazon
Jillian and Dean Noble have been happily married for almost 20 years. Jillian got pregnant very young, and they married. At 38, both boys have moved out of the house, and Jillian decides it’s time to step up their sex life. Dean is a hot ex-navy seal now running his own security company. They are still pretty young and vibrant, but their sex life, like most long-married couples, has become routine and vanilla. Jillian wants to change that and explore a whole new side to their marriage now that the kids are gone.
The story begins with Jillian dropping by her husband’s office and seducing him for the first time ever.
“I didn’t mean to get you so hot and bothered”
He raised a dark brow, amusement and daring etching his ruggedly handsome features. “Now that you have, what are you going to do about it?”
While they’d never played at being dominant and submissive in the bedroom, Jillian knew that Dean had always been holding back the dominant side of his personality. So after a hot as fuck office desk scene, they talk, like a good couple should. Dean is concerned she has been unhappy, but Jillian explained that she loved him, but now wanted to really explore their sexual relationship for the first time without always having kids and their friends underfoot.
When Dean comes home that night, he lets loose some the man he’s been holding back. And holy fuck…Dean is amazing. (I just had to go find my husband while writing this review…reading it again was still just as hot!)
I couldn’t believe The Awakening was only 35 pages. But I’ll tell you, it was more than enough. The characters were likable, but this series is pure lady porn for married people. But it was done just right. Nothing too gross, no overly flowery words, and just enough kink to be realistic and not over the top. After reading The Awakening, my note to Erika Wilde said:
Ooooh! Holy fuck! You’re in my brain! Give me more!!! .mobi please! I loved the first! Hurry! 🙂
Already the couple can’t get enough of each other, now that they have unleashed the beast, they are just getting started. Dean tells Jillian to be ready to go out for a date, but finds her dozed off in the bathtub, and gives her a nice wakeup. When she tries to coerce him to stay home…
“You’ve become a shameless hussy.”
“You bring out the shameless hussy in me.” And since he was her husband, she could be as promiscuous as she dared, which was such an incredibly freeing sensation. “I think you need to finish what you started.”
“Don’t you dare give yourself that orgasm I know you want so badly. I’ll give it to you when I feel you’ve earned it”
He picked out a very skimpy outfit for her to wear, and gave her a long strand of pearls, pearls that when worn backwards look like a choker, but can also be used like a leash to give Jillian that sense of being owned.
I love how the couple’s communication really helps them explore the new territory. It’s like a dam broke, and they are going to keep stepping it up. Plus I love the idea of a fantasy vase! I truly enjoyed this installment of The Marriage Diaries. Not quite as much as the first, but I still can’t wait to read more, and still loved this one.
One of Jillian’s fantasies (stranger/captive) is about to come true.
“I’m on my way home. I want the house dark. Hide from me, but no matter how hard you fight or resist me, I’m going to fuck you. Hard. Safe word: Mercy.”
Holy shit! I told Mr. Ana about this one….I want to play! Man, this was H-O-T! I love the comfort and security the couple gets from knowing and trusting the other so well. Yet Dean’s aggressive side is so fucking sexy, and he knows how to use it.
Jillian has been building a playroom in the basement of their home, and in this installment, they finally get to use it. This time, Jillian gets to play Mistress. I’ll tell you, I really like the submissive role, but this installment of The Marriage Diaries has me re-thinking that a bit. Though honestly, I can’t imagine my alpha guy letting me tie him up, it might be fun to try.
“He was her slave, all right. A slave to her passion, her hunger, her heart and soul. This woman, his wife, owned every single piece of him.”
Holy crap, Dean just keeps getting sexier. I bet he’s a great dad too. He loves his wife, thinks she is so sexy, and he is so alpha. I love how his dominant, possessive side is really coming out now.
“Her hair was a disheveled, sexy mess, unbridled passion etched her expression, and the way Dean touched her, possessed her, wholly dominated her…
“You’re fucking gorgeous,” he growled huskily, his lips grazing her cheek”
“That’s it baby girl,” he said, his voice low and strained and resonating with carnal hunger. “Push your ass up against me and take it deeper.”
Oh…I had to go send my husband a facetime message…;-) I’m back. Where was I?
Oh, so in this ‘episode’ they play out some of Deans fantasies, which include anal, and another….you just wait to read the result. Have I said how fucking hot Dean is?
Each of these books are about 40 pages. They are quick reads and they are good for pre-bedtime reading (if you know what I mean). If you are reading these alone, make sure you have a toy nearby, or visit my erotic toystore to pick up some of the items you might find in the books. Or toys you’ll need while reading it. 😀
These books can be read individually (My vajayjay needed a break so I read another book in between).
My husband and I went through a similar sexual revitalization after about 19 years of marriage (thanks to some of my favorite sexy books). We both started sharing our fantasies more, and my husband’s dominant side is hot as hell. He and Dean actually reminded me of each other. In the last 3 years, our marriage has become so much stronger and way hotter now that we finally came clean (or dirty) with our fantasies and brought some of the kink in. So I really related to these books. I realized that some of that hot spark we’ve had has been dying out again, but this series brought it right back!
So Erika, I thank you, and so does Mr. Ana. My vajayjay however (and the muscle I pulled) are not as happy with you afterwards.
- Reading about a couple who have been married for 19 years.
- I loved how Dean and Jillian finally came out and admitted the things they have fantasized about.
- How attracted the couple still is to each other.
- Dean is so alpha and commanding. Yum.
- How the trust between them just made it all so much easier.
- Almost every sex act is something I have fantasized about or done and want more of.
- Though each of these were short, they were just right for what they are.
- The sex acts were long and detailed without using words that make me snort or roll my eyes.
- I never felt like I needed more, these stories delivered what the intended.
Rating: 5 stars for a ladyporn novella series, 5+++ heat
It seems strange to give this 5 stars when there really isn’t much much character development. But that’s not what we read this for. You know how sometimes you just need a good hard fucking? That’s what this is like. Sometimes you need a little sex with your story, sometimes a little story with your sex. This series is the latter, and that’s just fine for a change.
Usually when I read a novelette, I feel it is missing something. How good can something be in 40 pages? But I have to tell you, these deliver what they are intended for. Lady Porn for the married moms (though I think a guy would like these too). There was just enough story to keep you interested, and the characters were very likable. I never felt like I needed more story, it was just right. I look forward to reading Erika Wilde’s next story and see what her spin-off series is all about.
