Fresh Fiction Review

Hold 'Em

I've been a fan of the Vegas Top Guns series since reading book one, Double Down. Sexy and emotional with just the right amount of romantic tension, I have thoroughly enjoyed each story. With HOLD 'EM, the duo of authors behind Katie Porter seems to be hitting its stride. The intensity is ratcheted up all the way around- more kink, more airborne suspense, more involvement of friends and family, and more relationship uncertainty. I could not put it down until I was sure Leah and Mike got their happy ending.

Captain Leah "Princess" Girardi of 64th Aggressor Squadron has been on her best behavior since almost making a colossal mistake after one too many drinks. She's sticking to soda and avoiding trouble. Unfortunately, trouble finds her in the form of Captain Mike "Strap Happy" Templeton, ex-lover and latest addition to the squadron. Leah is unhappy to discover the attraction is still there but she's determined to keep their relationship strictly professional. But then Mike reveals that he likes to be dominated in the bedroom and soon Leah discovers how much she enjoys playing the mistress. Leah is a natural femdom, but there are a lot of bumps in the road to adjusting to a new life, a new job, and a new relationship.

Learn more about Hold 'Em


Daughter of a world-famous motocross champion, and head-on competitor with three brothers, Captain Leah “Princess” Girardi was born with a need for speed. No one tells her what to do, especially not men with chauvinistic “girls can’t be fighter pilots” attitudes.

That’s what ended her brief relationship with Captain Mike “Strap Happy” Templeton. Now, six years later, he’s been assigned to her squadron, and whoa damn, he’s filled out nicely. Plus he’s cultivated a Zen-like chill factor that pulls at her hormones.

Even after four tours, Mike’s the new kid in the 64th Aggressor Squadron. That’s not the only thing new. Since he last saw Leah, he’s learned a few things about himself. A female who outranks him still makes his teeth grind, but in the bedroom he craves the rush of pain inflicted by an adoring, powerful woman.

Their reunion is an explosive revelation. Leah is the beautiful mistress he’s been searching for, and she takes to her new role like a natural. But Leah’s aware one thing hasn’t changed. Loving him is still an all-or-nothing proposition. She’s not sure her reckless streak is wide enough to risk her career—and her heart.

,span class="warning">Warning: This book contains a hot stud on his knees, a woman wielding a paddle, and filthy-gorgeous femdom sex. Also: dangerous rock climbing, two amazing motorcycles and some bad tequila.
