Legacies Review by Sapphira White


Legacies is the sequel to Hook Up, and builds brilliantly upon the events from the first book. Within these pages we get to continue Macy’s journey in more depth as she deepens her relationship with Tobias, meets inspiring individuals and challenges the very heart of sexuality and cultural norms along the way.

The story opens with her friend, Emma, whom we glimpsed in Hook Up. In this sequel, we get much more of an insight into her past and her relationship with Macy. The pair open so many doors for each other, and their friendship is remarkable to witness. They share a close bond that allows them to be totally free with each other, much more so than in the first book, where Emma is more of a background character. Emma’s perspective on life in general and acceptance of others rivals Macy’s, and it is refreshing to see.

The events set out in Legacies are much more hard-hitting and gritty than those in Hook Up. This will be no easy erotic novel to read. It deals with topics such as cancer, death, abuse and violent crime, among others. However, despite this I fully recommend you read it, as these topics highlight the fact that life is precious and is not to be wasted, and they help give the story substance so that it is not a flimsy piece of erotica added to the increasingly infatuated market for erotic novels since the publication of 50 Shades of Grey.

I would like to reiterate the fact that this is no mere erotic fantasy novel; it is so much more. If indeed you are looking for the next 50 Shades of Grey, you’ve come to the wrong place. This book does not focus on shocking sex scenes, and nor does it glorify or romanticise an abusive relationship. Yes, there are some pretty intense sex scenes conveyed in tasteful detail, with no vulgar language, yet there is also a message that resounds throughout this book even stronger than it did in the first: accept who you are and accept others. Appreciate the beauty and diversity of life. Embrace love, not hate.


Banquet Prep



Leigh lay in the deep bath enjoying the sensation of the jetting hot water that gently massaged her body. She sighed as she completely relaxed and the last remnants of the pain from her full body wax was forgotten. Her head was encased in a bath pillow keeping her head out of the steaming water and the orange blossom aroma of the bath oils assaulted her nose as she visibly relaxed deeper into her luxurious pampering session. Her face was covered in a clay mask cleansing her skin and her eyes were covered in thick cucumber slices cooling her eyes.

“How are you doing there?” the deep voice of the countess asked. Leigh sighed again, “Oh Countess this is bliss I don’t want to move.”

“You must,” came the reply, and taking the cucumbers off Leigh’s eyes the countess smiled down on her, “come on there’s lots to do to get you ready.” Leigh stretched her nimble limbs, stood up in the bath and the Countess wrapped a large fluffy towel around the young woman.

Leigh stood on a towel as the Countess dried her thoughly then she sat her on a stool so she could remove the face mask, then she was ready for Jenna to do her hair and make up. Leigh’s hair was piled high on her head in a bun then Jenna worked her magic with a lace netting to hold everything in place. Her face was made up to reflect a golden look. “You ready?”asked the countess as she stood by her with a warm jar of honey and a soft paintbrush. Leigh shivered with anticipation and took a deep breath to ready herself.

“OK!” she replied, standing up for the Countess and Jenna to do their work.

The paintbrushes licked over Leigh’s body with the softest of touches spreading the warm honey over every inch of her skin, tickling as they worked on her – and Leigh giggled now and then as they painted her sensitive areas.

“Come on Leigh concentrate, keep it in, you don’t want to lose control yet –  think of your training girl!” the Countess reprimanded firmly, and Leigh took calming breaths to gain control. She was on fire with the sensations from the brushes she shook her mind to mentally block the delicious feelings. There would be time enough later on the feast table.


Leigh finally composed herself and as she looked in the mirror she saw how she shimmered in the sweet sticky honey, a light bronze glow reflected in the mirror and she was ready to go to the marble table. She walked naked to the table and climbed the step that had been put ready for her. Sitting on the table she felt the cool marble against her skin and shivered involuntarily as she lay down. A satin pillow was placed under her head and cuffs were attached to her  wrists and ankles with chains that secured her in place.

“Are you comfortable there – do you need to reposition?”asked the Countess.

Leigh wriggled to be as comfortable as possible. “I’m fine now.” she replied, and as she lay there both the Countess and Jenna placed exotic fruits around her outline and also adorned her body with an array of lush berries ready for the party which would start in just over half an hour’s time.



A large jug of cream was put at the foot of the table. Leigh was nearly ready and her heart beat frantically with anticipation at the thought of the mouths that would pluck the soft fruits off her body and lick up the cream. The next part of the decoration was the piping across her stomach to congratulate Macy and Tobias on their marrage, and a drizzle of warm chocolate was the final touch.

The Countess did a final check on Leigh giving her some last minute advice on control, and then bent down to kiss the young woman firmly on her lips. Rising up from the kiss the Countess smiled, “My my Leigh you do taste delicious, I could eat you up myself! ”

Leigh giggled, “Thankyou Countess.”

And with that she waited eagerly for the pouring of the cream.









After awaking to Saturday’s tragic events my thoughts turned to what is happening world wide, and as I thought about mankind in general, I asked myself  – why? Why must we look for the worst in everything and look to fighting everyone, what is the reason behind us doing so much harm to our people and to our earth.

Holding Hands
Holding Hands

I hear people spouting ‘God’s will….. ‘ I must confess that I cannot or will not believe that God of any religious belief would want mankind to act in this way. God has many names as man has many religious beliefs and each God has one thing in common PEACE AND LOVE FOR ALL  MANKIND.

Man in himself has many things in common with other men,

1, Skin…we all have it,  it may vary in colour but its an esentual part of man,  white black yellow we are all the same on this earth

2. Blood…… We all have it and we all bleed the same when we are hurt.

3. Sex. Yes we all love it, but we are all different in the way we love; it does not matter who you love, it matter’s that you do. Every person on this earth, man or woman has the right to love whoever they love without prejudice or fear of being ostracised….. LIVE  LOVE  AND LAUGH  IN  PEACE


4. This planet our home….we need to start loving it, we need to look after it before its too late and we have nothing left to live for

These are but a few things that I  see as I look at our world of war and hate it’s time to stop, it’s time to embrace your fellow man and lend a hand: help feed the hungry,  house the homeless,  its time we start giving back and stop taking everything for granted.

We have an obligation to our children to give them a peaceful, prosperous life. We need to teach love not war, we need to stand up against all terrorists – who are the minority of mankind.



As authors of HookUp and Legacies we hope to promote acceptance for every person no matter what age, gender, sexual preference, colour, religion, disability or any other possible excuses people may use to discriminate against people.
