My Wicked Gladiators
By Lauren Hawkeye
Publisher Avon Red
Alba has spent her entire life pleasing others.
As an upper-class plebeian woman in Ancient Rome, that is her place in life. But when her husband Lucius, the owner of a prestigious gladiatorial school, uses her body as a bargaining tool to increase his fortunes, she is faced with doing as he demands, or finding herself on the street.
Forced to lay with masked gladiators chosen by Lucius, Alba is surprised to discover pleasure in being powerless. Only in the forbidden arms of Caius and Marcus does she find comfort, however temporary it may be.
But with Lucius’ demands looming and the threat of death for her gladiators ever-present, will Alba’s fleeting pleasures be enough? Or will Alba finally grab hold of her happily ever after, no matter the consequences?

First let me say, this is an adult only book. This review is acceptable for all audiences, but the book is definitely for adults.
That said… Yum! Think Spartacus, Gladiator, or 300 with the two hottest stars up close and personal. Oh and wearing only a leather loin cloth or nothing at all while bringing you all the personal earthquakes you want. Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
Oh, the story is good too. Basically the wealthy woman, who is best friends with her servant because they were raised together, finds out her husband, is a jerk. He “breeds” her to a gladiator (servant) because he can’t get her pregnant and he wants to do business with a man who is a family man. Luckily, the gladiators are good men who care for the woman. She comes to despise the class strictures and long for a life with the men she has come to love, but life isn’t fair and we don’t get what we want, right?
I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds and a steamy 8.5 chili peppers.
