Sting factor (kink): 3 out of 5
Paul becomes ever more insanely jealous of his Mistress Caroline’s lesbian relationship with fellow dominatrix Anita. It leads the normally dutiful slave to start misbehaving. Then he commits the cardinal sin of disobeying a direct instruction from his Mistress. As punishment for his wrongdoing the furious Caroline disciplines Paul relentlessly. She does however finally forgive the poor benighted slave. Anita disappears off the scene to be replaced by Nicole, who Caroline and Paul both find immensely attractive. She moves in with the kinky couple to engage in a sadomasochistic ménage a trois. This is supposed to be a no-strings-attached arrangement but soon takes an unexpected turn, which will change all of their lives forever.
Let me start by saying that Mistress Divine is not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of triggers within the pages and a lot of acts that are very cruel and sadistic. I don’t think Mistress Divine is for the new BDSM readers for several reasons…
There isn’t much I enjoyed about the book, yet I did finish it because I was hoping for more and I did finally get it near the end! But that wasn’t enough to make up for the beginning of this story. With Mistress Divine being over 300 pages, I really expected an in depth story with characters who were believable, realistic and a plot I could become invested in – I didn’t get any of it. I found the writing to be disjointed and skip a lot. This story tends to be wordy when unnecessary and lacking description and depth when you would expect it.
