Sting Factor (kink): 1 out of 5
Stef is a BDSM trainer who specializes in couples having problems with their relationship. His work has become an obsession, helping to distract him from the problems in his own life. When his old friend James, the owner of Club Perfect, calls in a favor, Stef can’t refuse.
James asks him to work with one couple only for the next eight weeks. Terry and Mark are high school sweethearts who have had trouble reconnecting since Terry was rescued from a Human Trafficking Ring. This training could make or break their relationship, and it could be Stef’s greatest challenge yet.
Through training they make some progress, but soon the three begin having problems keeping their professional and private relationships separate. Could the answer to their problems be a ménage?
Suddenly the Traffickers kidnap Terry again. Stef and Mark must work together to free the woman they love. Only once she is safe can they truly become A Perfect Trio.
It was very difficult to stay involved in this book because it was slow moving. It was annoying to have Mark constantly ask for Terry’s permission to do something during a scene. He’s the Dom, she’s the sub, when they’re in a scene, unless she calls her Safeword, her body is his to do with as he will. Mark is a very ‘weak’ Dom in my opinion. I wasn’t too awfully impressed with Stef either. I understand that there are underlying issues for Terry, but the character wasn’t too likeable to me.
