I Omega ~ Giveaway! Embrace your perv…

One week left til I, Omega releases, compadres…Who wants a free copy? Do you want it enough to comment with a genre, theme, trope or kink (hmmm…bondage…nom nom nom) that surprised you?

IO is my first (though certainly not my last) BDSM title. Writing it? Hot as hell. Gabriel and Cal as well as the world they live in took me places, very interesting places. Fascinating places. Places that surprised me, but in the very best way. No, I won’t tell you what those places were for fear of spoilering the book to death, LOL, but suffice it to say IO invited the animal nature of shifters to the table and then threw it a party. πŸ˜‰

Embrace your perv, I say! If you want to be entered for a free digital copy of I, Omega, leave a comment by 2:00 p.m. EST on IO’s release date, September 6th, with your favorite kink, trope, theme, genre — whatever surprised you by turning your crank. I’ll choose one winner at random and WOOT, free pervy smexin is yours. πŸ˜€

So…what’s your favorite kink, dudes?

    thanks for the contest…can not wait to read I,O

    a fan

  2. Melanie says:

    My most surprising “kink” was finding how much I like m/m romance. Beyond that, I’d have to say that I’m surprised that I enjoy contemporary so much within this genre. In het romance, I’m was strictly historical romance (Highland Scotland, Regency England) until the vamps showed up. ;-D

    And OMG, this cover is so HOTTT!

  3. Kari says:

    Yeah, M/M itself was a shocker for me, too, but…2 heroes for the price of one? C’mon what’s not to like, right? LOL. By the time I wandered into BDSM as a reader…Nothing surprises me at what floats my boat as a reader or a writer any more, let’s just say that. If we’re all having fun, IMO, it’s all good. πŸ˜‰

  4. Charming says:

    I’m going to throw down for tentacles. πŸ™‚

  5. Kimberly Be says:

    One kink that really surprised me was D/S. It doesn’t have to come on strong, just a little control play can go a long way. I love knowing what’s in characters’ minds when they play that way. I Omega sounds great; great title, too!

  6. Lacey says:

    Hmm, my favorite m/m stories are probably the ones with rockstars – LOVE my rockstars πŸ™‚ But if we’re talking smuttiness, I’d have to say my kink is twincest/brothercest. The good ones are SO hot!!

    • Kari says:

      OMG, Lacey, I was re-reading Jet Mykles Heaven Sent: Heaven last night…LOVE me some rockers! And we must be twins, my free read for the GR M/M Romance group’s Hot Summer Days event was a brothercest (stepbrothers) story. “The Importance of Being Denny.” *le sigh*

  7. jayhjay says:

    I would say my most surprising kink was menage. I would never have thought I would like it (or would believe an HEA). I still am very picky about what I’ll read, but I have found some that work for me.

    • Kari says:

      What kind of menage does it for y ou, jayhjay? Cause I like menages that mixed it up, all guys sure, but some with girls, too.

      Yes, I know. I’m a weirdo. LOL

  8. Lynn says:

    My favorite genre would have to be paranormal. I love shifters and vampires the most. I have several kinks I really enjoy reading about, my top two favorites are cock docking and using restraints.

  9. Alex W says:

    I was probably surprised to find I love BDSM. Before I read any, I was all, “Well, sure, I can understand the appeal, but it doesn’t turn me on.”

    That should have been a clue. Very much like reading it now! Especially restraints. Mmm.

    • Kari says:

      I think I bought my first BDSM book by accident, LOL, but wow, from then on, I was hooked. Even having ravenously read it, still took me a while to drum up the nerve to write it, though. Mostly, I think, because I wanted to make sure I could get my head into the right space. To write the story I wanted to write, I really needed to dig into that relationship, into that journey…

      Have I mentioned that I adore the headspace? πŸ˜‰

  10. Adara says:

    Bondage turns my crank. And serious alpha doms. =)

  11. Tracy says:

    I think my head’s still swimming…I think what surprised me the most about it all is, well…the wide variety of kink I never knew existed. Never *dreamed* of tentaclePr0n, but love it now…

    • Kari says:

      Yeah, the internet and ebooks really threw the door open and invited us smut-lovers right in. I’m no shrinking violet, so to speak, lol, and my imagination tends to be…uh…yeah. But the variety, wow. And also WOOT! πŸ˜€

  12. Judi says:

    Hm, well, When I first discovered M/M in a manga in high school, I was shocked… and Instantly in love! lol…
    I looked for many things in the anime/manga universe that had all sorts of kinks, themes and stuff like that. I learned my likes, disliked, tolerable’s and avoidable’s. Through it all…the one kink that I just… FELL in love with was…. Menage!

    Specifically and only to M/M/M. Oh, I still love my hetero couple but I will always now look for M/M first. ah, yes… I found and read tons of collections of MMM couples in manga. I found BDSM and all sorts of things and still… I just love M/M/M the most. Pfft! I actually just recently came into the M/M erotic novels. I used to be only into manga. and boy… is it hot. In novels I think i actually like Bondage. haha!! Its just Icing on the cake when I get MMM & Bondage/BDSM all in one! eek! And the book that has rated 5 and satisfied my crazy kink… Is Out of Focus by L.A. Witt.
    She has made my dream come true!! lol.. I totally suggest the read. That Novel was amazing! \^o^/
    Anyways, That’s my kink.
    I also have all sorts of themes I like but the main one is Businessmen. Rawr~ There is nothing as alluring or sexy and… just… ~swoon~ mff~ H.O.T~ as a man in a suit bent over a table being ravished!! lol~~~ or a wall… on a chair.. ahh~~ love it. LOL! \o/

    • Kari says:

      That. Is so. Freaking. HOT


      I need to write that. LOLOL

  13. Rho says:

    my biggest shockers, were definitely D/s, bondage, spanking and all the yumminess that goes along with that. Add to that, having two men and me, where we are ALL getting in on in true m/m/f…yeah. That would be heaven there. It would satisfy my love of m/m and I’d get some good lovin’ on top of it.

    ok, I’m gonna stop now before I embarrass myself. Well, more than I already have. LOL

    • Kari says:

      LMAO, Rho, if spanking’s your thing….Oh my. You’ll understand why I’m grinning like a jackass when I post the contest for IO on release day. Spanking is definitely involved. πŸ˜€

  14. Kathy says:

    I have to get on the menage bandwagon. I love menage where there are MM partners with a strong relationship but they just know something or someone is missing from them to feel complete. I love HEA. All characters have to be strong in their own way, no wimpy, feel sorry for me partners. Throw in some light bondage, toys and you got me hook line and sinker.

    • Kari says:

      I like menage with 2 guys, who are really truly together too, not just bookends to the chick in the story. I think that’s partly what drove everyone so nuts about Lovely Wicked. The potential for that genuine relationship between Mitch and Sammy was there almost from the very beginning, but Mitch just couldn’t glue himself together enough to be healthy for Sam and to make it work with Sam like he had to grow in order to make the relationship work with Liv. Not that Sam doesn’t have some gluing himself together and growing to do too… πŸ˜‰

  15. Megan says:

    genre — I’m not big on contemporary, so it’s a surprise that I’m finding so many contemporary stories lately that are hooking me so damn hard.

    theme — lawyers/businessmen. Like I said, contemporary not my thing, but I eat the hell out of stories with a strong business theme, I guess, especially when they’re lawyers.

    trope — I don’t think there’s a trope that’s ever surprised me that I like. I love romance because of its tropes, and all the ways people use them, and I like damn near all of them.

    kink — never thought, many many many moons ago, that I would be a fan of poly, but it’s become a fav. Other than that, whipping. Definitely did not guess I would be a fan of that :3

    • Kari says:

      That’s the second businessman thing and I gotta say, the more I think about it, the more I like it. Which is weird. If you met me IRL…I’ve turned down jobs because I would’ve had to dress up too much for them, LOL. (I take Casual Friday to a whole nother level. πŸ˜‰ ) In fic, though? Yowser. Okay, this one’s officially percolating on a back burner in my skull. Way too intriguing.

  16. Virginia says:

    I can only pick one kink????? I enjoy d/s themes in my M/M. Nothing hotter that a guy submitting to another guy. {shivers} If you needed more specifics, I enjoy reading about bondage scenes. So hot especially with a hot dom. πŸ™‚ I also like medical kink. You don’t run into it much in M/M but there’s few books out there with some fun scenes.

    • Kari says:

      I can only pick one kink?????

      I know! LOL.Med kink…hm. Some, yes; others, no. It really depends for me — as do ALL kinks — on how it’s handled inside the story and the context of that particular set of characters’ relationship. I truly believe that almost anything goes as long as the writer approaches the kink right. You can even take a tame (hardee har har) spanking scene and in one writer’s hand? OMFG. Hawt. But if the writer fumbles it? Abuse. And ew.

      I think we writers, before we even think about tackling kink,…we need to explore inside our own heads and make sure we get it. That we can live and breathe it first. Because if we aren’t feeling it? If we can’t wrap our minds around it and invest ourselves in it? Readers won’t be able to, either. That’s not to say I’m going to rush right out to buy a speculum or whatever, LOL, but if I can’t feel the allure or be enthralled with it inside my head, that scene just isn’t ever going to work.

      [/sermon] (hehe)

  17. Miki says:

    Hmm my favorite kink. Definitely D/S. I I am a huge fan of m/m stories and love the older/younger relationships. Leatherman is also a favorite of mine too.

    • Kari says:

      Ah, I explored the older/younger man relationship in Spoils of War, although Eli isn’t hugely older than Micah. Just lots. LOL

  18. lacrimsonfemme says:

    It’s BookAddict here from GR. (There are many BookAddicts.) I don’t think it would be a surprise to anyone that BDSM is my favourite smexy genre. While I read more Sci-Fi/Fantasy than anything else, BDSM is still my favourite. What do I like about BDSM? I think the question is more what don’t I like about BDSM. I love the BD. Being tied up is my favourite vanilla activity. (I know; how wrong is it that bondage is now vanilla to me?) DS is very heady and I love it because I can finally give up control. SM fits me quite well because I love the pain. Giving and receiving are fine by me. What surprised me most is I enjoy m/m BDSM. I didn’t expect to enjoy m/m books, but now I find I like them. When they involve BDSM, it kicks it to a higher gear that causes me to melt.

    I used to think I was light BDSM – sugarkink in my RL and totally hardcore edgeplay BDSM in my fantasies and what I read. Lately, based on the classes I’ve been taking in BDSM, turns out, I may not be a sugarkink as I thought. Even better, I’ve dragged my DH kicking and screaming into the dark side. O_O

    • Kari says:

      Of it all, I have to say that D/s pushes my buttons most. BD, yes. SM — when it’s done right. Ham-fisted stories that masquerade abuse as BDSM? Ew. But D/s gets me every time. Sexy, sexy, sexy.

  19. Kerry says:

    I love reading M/M BDSM books. My favorite kink to read is romantic SM. I don’t know why, but I love when one guy likes to give pain and another likes to receive it. (A Russian Bear was a perfect example of this.) You already have me sold with this book since you mentioned that it has spanking. πŸ˜€ And, can I just mention how smokin’ hot the cover is???!!!!!!! I could stare at it all day!!!! Yum!!!

    • Kari says:

      I love Gabriel on that cover. I could tie that boy down and lick him all day, LOL

    • lacrimsonfemme says:

      Ooh, I loved A Russian Bear! Did you re Catalyst or Tribute? Both have m/m in it and the pain. Oh the pain. I liked both of those too. I loved Tribute.

      • Kerry says:

        Thanks for the recommendations!! I’m always on the lookout for books with pain. I am going to add both Catalyst and Tribute to my wish list!

  20. June M. says:

    You name it (or write it) and I will probably read it. I LOVE m/m, bdsm, menages, combinations of these. And you get hawt, muscular, tattoo’d guys involved and I will really LOVE it!

    • Kari says:

      Gabriel gets a tat in I Omega. Dub-con tattooing? πŸ˜€ Hell, it’s dub-con everything. Damn, I love the push-pull of dub-con, could write capture-y dub-con for the rest of my career. Sho nuff.

  21. Monica says:

    My surprising kink is Viewfinder ( Finder Series ) by Ayano Yamane. It has BDSM to Unvoluntary Sex and Stockholm Syndrome ( to whatever that opens my eyes and mind to the MM world )

    Thanks to this series, I’ve been addicted to MM

  22. Arlene says:

    Love BDSM,and dominant men,yum!Loved your Spoils of War.

  23. Bobbejean says:

    I like the non-con…..but I only enjoy it with m/m. I guess that’s why I first started reading m/m, there’s just something a little easier to accept when you have two yummy guys and one is so very dominant! Oh yeah, and don’t forget the spanking!!!

    I LOVED Spoils of War and have been looking for some more m/m from you. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!


  24. sammy2006 says:

    Okay–as much as I blush to admit this–I really do get off on Doms and Subs–I think it is the BDSM novels that show that genuine love a good Dom has for his sub that get me going the most–it is a rich and romantic relationship that exists in a place of pain and pleasure–that is remarkably hot to me!

    • Kari says:

      Oh yeah, for me, the magic of BDSM is all about that journey. The care and attention of a Dom to a sub’s needs, that deepening trust, watching it evolve and grow between two men…So fricking sexy. And the strength of the sub to let go and allow himself to be vulnerable for his Dom? Oh my.

  25. Rhi says:

    Am I allowed to enter?
    I am totally intrigued by the cover art and want to read.
    My fetish… I guess “hot guys eye-fucking each other while drag-racing in muscle cars” is a bit too tame and cliche’.

    So… I’m all about alien porn. Pushing the barrier of acceptable sex partners. LOL. If it crosses science fiction or fantasy with hot unconventional gender/sexuality, I’m all for it.

    • Kari says:

      Dude, eye-fucking over muscle cars works for me. Lots. πŸ˜‰

      Speaking of alien porn…Have you read What Place Can I Beg In Your Love? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read that. I should be ashamed of myself, but I’m so not. LOL. Oh, and Acquainted With the Night! I wasn’t so crazy about the mpreg thing, but it really wasn’t so bad…There was just so much about that book that I absolutely adore. While I’m not real crazy about the alien partners, add in some strong dub-con and I’m all over it.

  26. Leilani says:

    Found that I adore menage and more and prefer mmf over mfm. And the messier, the better.

    • Kari says:

      I like versatility in my menage. I don’t just want it to be mmf or mfm, I want it to be like a smorgasboard. I’m a greedy wench that way. πŸ˜‰

  27. Terry Vineberg says:

    Huh, where to begin… How about an alpha male having another alpha male at his mercy, entirely overpowered and incapacitated, and taking him against his will while pretending it’s for his own good? (A.K.A. gentle rape that tears apart the soul.)

    Oh, I’m a sadist. *hides*

    But I SO want to read I, Omega! πŸ™‚

  28. sarahs says:


    Well till I started reading M/M i didnt know I had a kink for D/s … not pain in the extreme but control and spanking really turns my crank πŸ˜€

    • Kari says:

      LOL…Just wait til you see the contest I’ll be posting on release day on Tuesday. (Or get the deets earlier if you’re subscribed to my newsletter, I suppose. Heh.)

      It’s spank-tacular. πŸ˜‰

  29. Michelle says:

    For me the surprise kinks would have to be BDSM and Menage. Both of which I discovered when I started reading M/M. I only like them in M/M or M/M/M stories. Sometimes Dubcon is hot as well.

    • Kari says:

      Intelligent dub-con. That’s really my one and only parameter for dub-con. I don’t want a mask of abuse. I want to feel that push-pull of emotion, the inner struggle. The best dub-con is a dance and a damn hot one. πŸ˜€

  30. tammy ramey says:

    i think the menage thing is what i like to read about. i like the dynamics of the relationship between the characters and how it affects each of them and then if done right how it all comes together for the HEA. i prefer it to be m/f/m with the focus on the female but the males not afraid of each other either.


    • Kari says:

      Oh, I like the attention to share among all 3 in my menage, segregated into couples as well as the three of them together. I like the complexity of menage, too. It’s a delicate balance, especially at the start of the relationship, with so much room for miscues and missteps. Exponentially so with characters who bring a lot of baggage into the mix.

  31. Patti P says:

    I guess mine would be M/M because I didn’t think that would ever be sexy to me. But boy was I wrong.

    musicalfrog at comcast.net

  32. Nikyta says:

    Hmm, what’s my kink? Hell, what ISN’T my kink? Lol. But kidnappings really do it for me. Kidnappings with a heavy case of Stockholm Syndrome. πŸ™‚

    • Kari says:

      Hi, Nikyta! Loves me some capture stories too. LOL. It’s how Spoils ended up being written — I wanted moar. πŸ˜‰

      Actually, that’s how I Omega ended up being written too. I wanted shifters and just wasn’t finding what I wanted on the market…

      Oh lord. Epipany: 99.9% of what I write is because a) I want moar of and/or b) nobody’s writing what I want. Unsure whether or not I should be proud or alarmed by this.

  33. Stacey says:

    I am not sure how to answer this, so let’s just say I am thinking of a good answer. Have not read books like this, but will look for sure. Found your blog through the Night Owl Reviews hunt. Will add your blog to my roll. And looking forward to reading your work, and that cover is fabulous :O}

    • Kari says:

      Hehe. A hearty, welcome all Night Owl Reviews web hunters, I say. Comment along, who knows, you might end up with the free book, right? πŸ˜‰

  34. Kathleen Todd says:

    Wow your covers are so hot I just have to read the books. bondage is my fav.

  35. Lilli says:

    Well, as someone already mentioned m/m was the first huge surprise to begin with. Before I even got accustomed to all the hotness I jumped right onto the next level reading a not-so-light bdsm book. H.U.G.E. surprise. ;))) So bdsm and paranormal as in werewolves are my favourite genres. But a favourite kink definitely is dub-con / slave-fic. And mpreg. *lol*

    Thank you Kari for offering the chance to win a copy! πŸ™‚

    • Kari says:

      Hey, Lilli! While I can’t imagine writing an mpreg (just not my kink)…Dubcon. Capture-y dubcon. OMFG, yes, pls. LOL. Add in the kink and I’m totally gone for it. πŸ˜€

  36. Mari says:

    there are so many to choose from…. maybe having one person tied up naked and having a room full of people watching that are fully clothed?

    • Kari says:

      *snerk* That actually happens in IO. The warehouse in NJ. You’ll know it when you see it and I agree — incredibly hot. ;-p
