I recently started reviewing books for BDSM Book Reviews, and for my first book, I selected The Pet Shop by K D Grace and I have to say I quite enjoyed it.
The Pet Shop is about Stella James, an employee for a UK-based company called Strigida. The book begins with Stella receiving a special reward from her bosses at Strigida for all her recent hard work. Stella isn’t expecting the gift they provide and is shocked and a bit scandalized to discover that she has been given a Pet. Up to this point, Stella has never heard of a Pet before, but her boss Anne O’Kelly provides her with a manual and leaves them to each others company. Her Pet is named Tino and is mischievous as well as unwilling to give up after his initial attempts to win Stella’s interest. By the end of the weekend she’s given in to the Pet and can’t get him out of her mind.
What Stella doesn’t know is that there is much more to Tino and the Pet Shop. She struggles to get more time with Tino, a pet in high demand, only to discover his real life identity. She gets several shocks throughout her journey including the training on how to be a Pet. Eventually, she gets a real behind the scenes peek at what the Pet Shop is and how it began. It seems that many people in her life aren’t who or what she thought they were and she ends up in a tailspin.
