Sting Factor (kink): 4.5 out of 5
After her longtime boyfriend dumps her, Kristy craves a change in her life. Her best friend, Sherry, is into the BDSM scene, and on a whim and a bet, Kristy finds herself in the playroom at an exclusive club. A disguised Dom named Master Jay uses sensation play and a piece of silk to help her discover the world of kink. She finds it enjoyable and addictive, but what she doesn’t know is that Master Jay is really Jake, a much younger man to whom she’s strongly attracted.
For the past couple of years, Jake quietly watched Kristy in his gym. He doesn’t care that she’s older than him; he wants her. When the virgin BDSM sub he’s hired to train ends up being Kristy, Jake almost falls apart. During the scene they play at the club, he fantasizes about getting her into restraints in his own playroom. But Kristy is shocked when she learns that the two men she desires are one and the same. Can Kristy who’s led a vanilla sex life, and Jake, who knows nothing but kink, find a future together?
Magnificent! I absolutely loved this book. The book is about a journey of self-discovery after Kristy breaks up with her long- time boyfriend. The author draws you into her world in the first chapter and does not let you go.
The reader walks step by step through Kristy’s journey. The journey the author describes is very believable right from the very start. The challenges that Kristy faces are also very believable. It’s very apparent that there was a lot of care taken to make the story believable. I also liked that the author showed that it was not only Kristy that had issues to deal with to make the relationship between her and Jake grow.
I also liked that the characters did not have easy paths in their relationship. Both parties had to grow and learn. Overall, this was a fabulous book. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
