      3.5 - ”I don’t want just one night.” Stars.I am a huge fan of Lauren Smith, The Shadows of Stormclyffe hall was one of my top ten PNR reads of 2014, add to that the fact that I fell head over heels in love with her League of Rogues series and I am one smitten kitten for this author.Lauren offers the same immersive and engrossing writing style that I have come to expect with The Gilded Cuff as well as a uniquely different storyline offering thrills, spills, romance, suspense and a little ki [...]

      What I loved writing most about The Gilded Cuff was the mansions on Long Island. Digging into the old historical 1920s oil boom mansions on the Gold Coast was fascinating. Some of the most amazing houses ever built were on the Gold Coast and only a few have survived since the 1920s and haven't been destroyed. The way the houses were built, and the extravagence and opulence that went into their building and the types of parties that happened there were unbelieveable. I wanted to capture that Grea [...]

      Copy Provided by author in exchange for an honest reviewSo last year, I was scrolling through my kindle trying to decide what book should I read. All I knew, I was looking for some quick read. And so when I finally decided to read this book titled Forbidden, I found myself practically inhaling it. I was hooked and had to research who is this Lauren Smith. So after a few messages exchanged, I practically adored this author. And so when Lauren messaged me if I was interested in reading her other s [...]

      O.M.G Where do I begin with book!? How about that I didn't want it to end!This right here is what we have been craving for, it's everything FOSG wasn't (I know I know some people think that books the cats meow. Not me.) The information on the bdsm lifestyle is accurate. Drive me nuts when you see books out there that fail to portray the lifestyle correctly. This does, even has some break down scenes which I appreciated that detail. Like in the first chapter when Sophia enters the club, they as h [...]

      **JOSIE'S REVIEW**I want to start off by saying this book was nothing at all like I expected. It was by far more than I imagined. I have never read a book by Lauren Smith, but I have added her to my and author lists.I thought The Gilded Cuff was just a BDSM book but it was much more than that. The author gives readers a REAL STORY that grabbed me at the first page up until the very end. Yes we have some really kinky, steamy sex but the author also gives readers suspense, danger, mystery and a [...]

      What a beautifully written heartbreaking story. I can't go into to much of the story without giving certain things away so I will say that Emery Lockwood has become reclusive due to events that happened as a child, one of the only times he ventures out is to go to a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island’s Gold Coast "The Gilded Cuff". Sophie Ryder is a Journalist that digs deep and helps the police solve kidnapping cases. When Emery and Sophie meet at "The Gilded Cuff" there is such an attraction [...]

      Received an ARC for reviewFirst book I've read by Ms. Smith, but so won't be the last. This book was just amazing from the first scene with Emery and Sophia at the club till the preview of Fenn. It had suspense, love, BDSM, action, mystery. I just loved it, and can't wait for book two. I hope there are more than three books planned because we met so many great secondary friends that I want to know more about.

      The Gilded Cuff blew me away!! It was so much more and better than I expected it would be. It was magnificent and I wholeheartedly loved it!Sophie Ryder is obsessed with Emery Lockwood's past. She believes that he can give her clues to help solve a kidnapping case and she'll do whatever it takes to talk to him, even if she has to go into a BDSM club to do it. No matter how much his story has fascinated her, nothing can prepare her for how the man himself captivates her mind, body, and soul.Emery [...]

      The feel of Emery's mouth on hers, his arms around her body holding her protectively, flooded her with strength and hope.3.5 starsThis is so much different than what I thought it would be. Sure, I thought there would be some sex in it, but the other I was quite surprised. It's adventurous, a thriller, and mysterious.Kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end.

      If you read the blurb and think that you’re looking at a straightforward BDSM/Erotica book, think again. I’d have to say that this is more Mystery with some BDSM/Erotica elements. For example, there is “literally” ONE scene in the club and it’s in the first chapter. Ok, now that I’ve gotten THAT out of the way. This was actually a really good read. I was completely drawn in from the beginning and once I hit the 3rd chapter I was hooked. Being an investigative journalist, Sophie finds [...]

      3 "Teach me to be strong." StarsReading The Gilded Cuff came about after requesting and receiving book two of this series on NetGalley. Several bloggers I follow rated this one high so I was excited to get to it. I liked this book. I liked the plot line especially. It was intriguing and interesting. Lauren Smith writes quite colorfully providing detailed descriptions of places and people she's depicting in her stories. I really loved that aspect of reading this book because there were times the [...]

      This is gonna be a lovely series. It's got all of Lauren's trademark writing style, but crosses over into contemporary quite nicely. It's not in your face BDSM/erotica, but subtle and sexy, focusing on the underlying trust necessary in a Dom/sub relationship.I also loved the way Lauren wove backstory (old newspaper articles) in with the current story. Very creative. The characters were great and definitely laid a strong foundation for the remainder of the series.Looking forward to seeing who's u [...]

      When I began reading ‘The Gilded Cuff’ I was a little surprised about the beginning. We meet Sophie, a journalist, when she tries to get in contact with Emery Lockwood in a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island. Sophie has felt an connection with Emery ever since she found out about his past and the tragic event in which he lost his twin brother, and now she desperately needs to find him because she thinks his life is in danger. Like I said, I was surprised about the beginning being in a BDSM c [...]

      2 STARSI know I'm fucked up in the head. But that's me. I love the books were the action occurs in a sex club, I love the menage' books, dark, dirty and mindfuck.But unfortunately, for me, this book action didn't occur in the sex club, and it hasn't had a menage'.DamnSophie is a journalist and has one obsession.Emery Lockwood.Emery has a very painfully past. He thought he got away, but he is mistaken. Emery had a twin brother. They both were kidnapped when they were kids, and Emery made it out a [...]

      Somewhere inside this club, a man’s life was hanging by a thread and she would save him and get the story of the century.My first new to me author read of the new year, and I’m so glad I came across this. Granted, the cover trend of using a single inanimate object (a key, jewelry or some random, inanimate object) is rather uninspired, but the story inside was right up my alley. An investigative journalist, a reclusive CEO and a twenty-five year old unsolved kidnapping made for one sexy story [...]

    23. Trader (RedHotBlueReads) on said:

      When I read the synopsis to The Gilded Cuff, I thought this was going to be more of an erotic romance, but after reading the book, it seemed to me to be more romantic suspense with BDSM elements. That was okay for me though, because I really liked both the suspense plot and the romance between the main characters. For me, the best part of The Gilded Cuff was Sophie and Emery. From the very moment they meet at the BDSM club, there’s definite heat between these two. I loved the opening scene at [...]

She needs to do so for two reasons. One to save the now grown man who is still in danger and to ease the pain and guilt she suffers because of something that happened when she was a child. She arranges to go to the BDSM club that Emery is a member of in or [...]

When she runs across Emery’’s story she gets the sense that this man who has survived the worst tragedy imaginable may still be in danger and is hell bent on saving him if it is the last thing she does. To gain his trust she must go outside of her comfort zone [...]

      Well, DAMN!!!That's definitely another addition to my must read authors and series :) I immensely enjoyed reading this first book in the Surrender series. The story was intriguing and fascinating, peppered with dangers, romance, hotness and suspense. The action is fast paced and there isn't even a moment in which you can get bored. It kept me on my toes nearly 100% of the time. Both, Emery and Sophie, are enchanting characters that gained my compassion from the first few words. They are well dev [...]

      I have found a new go to author! This author writes with beautiful and colourful words, she paints a dynamic picture for the reader of every scene and emotion. The very original storyline was intriguing, exciting and interesting to read. I found it difficult to put this book down, it is a very good length too which I like in a novel. Each chapter starts with a New York Times news blurb, to remind the reader of the crime that this book is based on.The main characters Sophie and Emery, are damaged [...]
