Sting Factor (kink): 3 out of 5
I’m tired of my life being nothing but downs, so I’ve decided to cut loose and disappear. My job no longer exists, my bank account is on the verge of being zeroed out, and I’ve already moved out of my apartment. Now there’s only one piece of paper left to sign–my abduction agreement. My sister has had ties into the BDSM community for years, and now I’m committing myself to the lifestyle in every way. I’ve decided to sign a paper that takes every right and freedom I’ve ever had and become a service sub. But will my new Mistress be the solution I was hoping for, or the ultimate letdown? *Contains F/F
Hiding from life by selling oneself into a slave auction is generally not recommended. Paige is a screw up. There is no way to mince words about her life. She is unable to cope with her life because of unresolved issues from her past. This set up for her to delve into the BDSM lifestyle is a train wreck waiting to happen. I rated this a three star because the story is well written even if I didn’t enjoy it. In addition, the BDSM is more or less accurate even if Paige goes in with an abusive mind set.
I did not like Paige at all. She is dismissive of the BDSM lifestyle and feels it is just a way to get a sugar momma. Her lack of respect and bratty attitude would have me showing her to the door. For me, she is a loathsome character with no redeeming qualities. She goes into BDSM for all the wrong reasons and she proceeds to bring down a dominant with her messed up issues. Delilah is an admirable dominant. She is loving, strict and appreciates the lifestyle and what it has to offer. She makes the best of a bad situation. Her downfall is the toxic relationship with a selfish brat who is only out for herself.
One could say that Paige is a troubled girl and because of her past, she should receive a pass. Oh, boo hoo hoo, get a therapist, don’t screw up someone else’s life. Paige view on BDSM is hostile and with a holier than thou attitude. She grates on me as she brings those around her down. This sexual awaking journey should really be more of a slap her out of her own pity party intervention. Her responses to BDSM scenes are as expected for someone who isn’t into it and just wants to be in it for the sex. She’s all about the pussy and what she can get out of it. Ms. Krieger does an excellent job of representing the type of people flocking to the lifestyle after reading Fifty Shades of Grey. It is a sad commentary and all too real.
The conflicts in this story are well done and resolved by the end of the book. The kink scenes are done in a realistic manner, down to when something doesn’t go right. The abduction part is a bit much for some, however, I have friends in the lifestyle who have done abduction scenes similar to this one. It is usually pretty hawt and terrifying in one. This one made me feel a bit dirty only because Paige is such a screw up. Can you tell I do not like her? Overall, this is a more down to earth representation of how BDSM can happen in real life. Sadly, it is not all whips, floggings and roses. This BDSM tale is recommended to kinky readers who want read when things are not perfect and still turn out fine.+
