Reading Until Dawn

Review requests currently closed

Our review request pile is currently closer to a mountain, and we're kind of afraid it's going to fall on our heads and bury us all in a massive book avalanche. Until we can get through the majority of the TBR list we have right now, we at MKR are currently unable to accept any new review requests.

Blog tour + CONTEST: Guarded by LA Witt & Cat Grant

Hi! Thanks for joining Cat and Lori on this blog tour/giveaway celebrating the release of our first joint self-published book, Guarded. We know you’ll enjoy this super-hot, super-kinky tale of a rock star and his bodyguard. Leave a comment for a chance to win a special Guarded swag pack, featuring an exclusive T-shirt and signed paperback! Each comment counts as an entry, so follow us on all of our stops and rack up more chances to win!


Dangerous Games: Breath Play

At the beginning of Guarded, there’s a disclaimer, which reads:

To quote director Kathryn Bigelow, “Depiction does not mean endorsement.” What’s hot on paper can be – and frequently is – injurious or even deadly in real life. This novel depicts a number of kinky sexual practices, including breath play. We as the authors of this book cannot stress strongly enough – do not try this at home, folks.

So why write about practices that are dangerous enough to warrant a disclaimer? In short, because people don’t live their lives by the rules. People take risks—some bigger than others. Whether it’s recommended or not, the fact is, some people do engage in breath play.

We knew when we started playing with the story that breath play was going to be a significant part of it. Of course, every source we read while researching said the same thing: “This is insanely dangerous. Just don’t do it. Ever.”

By this point, Jordan and Jase were alive and well in our heads, though, and neither of us was the least bit surprised by Jordan’s reaction to that advice:

“Bite me.”

As you can probably gather, Jordan is a bit of a sassy handful. And let’s face it, he’s a rock star. He likes to live on the edge. Telling him something is dangerous doesn’t have much of a deterrent effect. Quite the opposite.

From the start, this is a bone of contention between Jordon and Jase. Jordan is a reckless wild child. Jase, however, is the opposite. He’s much more cautious, not to mention the fact that he’s both a bodyguard and a Dom. His need to protect Jordan runs as deep as his need to give Jordan the things he craves, and those two needs clash hard when it comes to Jordan’s bulletproof kink: breath play. Both men are aware of the danger. They know there’s a fine line between getting Jordan off and doing irreparable damage—I’m sure you can guess what “irreparable damage” entails when an airway is being cut off.

Jase is determined to find a happy medium, though. Something that scratches Jordan’s itch, but won’t kill him.

So this means that in Guarded, we have two guys who openly acknowledge that what they’re doing is dangerous, but they do it anyway. And yes, we hope our readers find the scenes as hot as we do.

But as the disclaimer emphatically states, depicting something is not the same as endorsing it. Please don’t try it at home.



On the surface, rock star Jordan Kane has it all. His band No Rules is burning up the charts and headlining a world tour. His bodyguard doubles as a hot, kinky boyfriend who knows just how to push all his buttons. But behind the scenes, he’s suffocating.

Jase Hewitt never imagined he’d have a shot at bedding the larger than life rock star – never mind dominating him – but now he’s worried he’s in over his head. Jordan’s kinks run deep, dark, and sometimes dangerous, putting Jase’s desires to both pleasure and protect him at odds.

They might have a fighting chance at finding the safe, happy medium between what Jordan needs and what Jase is willing to give, but there’s one problem: Daniel, Jordan’s childhood best friend, the band’s talented guitarist — and a volatile, hard-partying drug addict. Jordan is determined to save Daniel from himself, but Jase has been there, done that, and desperately wants to protect Jordan from the inevitable heartache of watching an addict self-destruct.

When Daniel goes off the rails again, Jordan calls off the tour to get him help. Tension within the band skyrockets and pressure from the record label sends Jordan into a dark spiral. Now his band — and his life — are balanced on a knife’s edge, and Jase is the only one who can pull him back… but only if the echoes of his own tragic past don’t push him over first.

Available now at Amazon, Nook, Kobo, iTunes and Smashwords.


Cat Grant lives by the sea in beautiful Monterey, California, with one persnickety feline and way too many books and DVDs. When she’s not writing, you can usually find her watching movies or TV (Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries are among her favorite shows), singing along to her favorite band (30 Seconds to Mars), or fantasizing about kinky sex with Michael Fassbender and/or Jared Leto.

Here’s Cat’s various hideouts on the Internet:

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer currently living in the glamorous and ultra-futuristic metropolis of Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a disembodied penguin brain that communicates with her telepathically. In addition to writing smut and disturbing the locals, L.A. is said to be working with the US government to perfect a genetic modification that will allow humans to survive indefinitely on Corn Pops and beef jerky. This is all a cover, though, as her primary leisure activity is hunting down her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who is also said to be lurking somewhere in Omaha.

    I really enjoy reading books that take things to a new level. I’ve seen breath play in action and it’s quite fascinating to watch but I totally agree it isn’t something everyone should do, it’s something you should only do with a person who is skilled in this type of play. I read a book recently about needle play which totally squiggied me out because I hate needles but that didn’t stop me from reading and gaining understanding into that type of play. Congrats on the release, I can’t wait to read it.

    Lots of the things I love to read about are things I wouldn’t do in real life. I enjoy the rush the characters get out of these things.
    I couldn’t wait, so I ordered the e-book last night. I’d still love to be entered in the contest. :)

    Please add me too, thank you!!!

  • Trix says:

    Hey, it’s called fiction for a reason! I definitely want to read this one…

  • Emily W. says:

    I’ve heard of breath play, but I’ve never read a book featuring it, so I’m intrigued. While I wouldn’t try it in real life, I would still like to read about it and learn more about it.

    I do find breat hplay very arousing (to read and fantasize about based on people’s experiences in real life), but I’d probably never try it myself. I’m too scared of the possible negative consequences.
