Bondage at Sea by Genevieve Ash
Story rating: 4 out of 5
Sting factor (kink): 1 out of 5
This is a short, enjoyable erotic fiction story using BDSM as the lever within a mutually attractive couple.
The BDSM aspect is never fully explained as to why she accepts his offer for a trip or for his using BDSM because neither are truly in the lifestyle, but that and another twist provides each with a way to be open to the other.
For me though, I enjoyed the emotions each was feeling as they tried to accept and express their feelings.
It was a fun romp, just enough BDSM to not be totally disappointing, and enough sexual action to be arousing.
It is a fairly easy read that took me about 20 minutes, but I have to admit to speeding up when the actions and emotions of the characters begin moving faster.

An erotic novella with mixed themes including spanking, female submission and role play.
Trish lives a quiet, happy life until she meets Josh, and he turns her world upside down. Worlds apart, they record erotic audio books, their voices merged in a studio far away, until one day they are brought together in a small recording booth.Their attraction immediate, the close proximity and titillating words, make it impossible to deny their lust for one another. Although distance and commitments keep them apart, they become writing partners and manage to find ways to come together for both business and pleasure. When Josh decides to cross the Pond and visit Trish on her home turf, she takes him to a secluded cabin in the woods where “making up for lost time” takes on a whole new meaning.
Pleasure Haven is a short story that has very little BDSM involved. Trish and Josh met while recording erotic audio books. Now, they meet every so often and work on new stories together.
I liked both characters. They are a partnership that is really only together for the sex over the years. But, this trip proves to be something more. Trish is a fun character willing to try new things and take a chance. Josh states time and again that their relationship is a partnership, but they do try a few role plays in the bedroom.
I wasn’t overly impressed with Pleasure Haven, but I did enjoy the simple contemporary romance with a few kinky bits hinted t. I didn’t feel like it was very erotic or BDSM themed. When I finished the story, I couldn’t remember any spanking or anything kinkier than a few outfits. Pleasure Haven is a cute short story that has its merits, those merits for me just didn’t fit with a BDSM theme.
