Description: After far too much lackluster sex with her now-ex-boyfriend, Kristen Locke isn’t just ready to try something new, she’s ready to try everything. And as luck would have it, two of her good friends are more than willing to introduce her to the kinkier side of life: Experienced dominant Scott Moore wants to bring out the submissive in her. Neighbor and voyeur Matt Sommers quite literally sees the exhibitionist in her.

Little by little, they open up a whole new world to her, and Kristen’s about to learn that love can be found in the most unusual places…

Review: I am so disappointed in this novel… it started really great and then it got worse and worse.

But let’s start at the beginning. I like the slow approach Kristen takes into BDSM territory. It’s not boring, but very erotic and teasing. I felt with Kristen and I thought I’m in for an amazing ride.

But there’s only sex. It gets really boring after a while and I started skipping the scenes. I skipped a lot, because there is like absolutely no plot in this. And after sex, sex, sex suddenly boom! Love! What? How did that happen? The ending felt forced and unbelievable, too.

Bonus points for making Kristen a switch and at least showing her in a few scenes as a domme.I’m used to BDSM novels being like “you’re a switch, but I’m making you a sub!”, so that was really refreshing.

Maybe I would have liked it better if I would have read it in small doses, but reading it in a few sessions? Sexual overkill.
