The Perfect Submissive: – a full length erotic novel (The Perfect Submissive Trilogy Book 1) [Kindle Edition] – Kay Jaybee #BookReview #Review

The Perfect Submissive: – a full length erotic novel (The Perfect Submissive Trilogy Book 1) – [kindle edition] 99¢
Hidden behind the Fables Hotel’s respectable facade, five specially adapted rooms wait; ready to cater for the kinky requirements of its guests.

When Mrs Peters, the mistress of the hotel’s exclusive entertainment facility, meets the new booking clerk, Jess Sanders, she instantly recognises the young woman’s potential as a deliciously meek addition to her specialist staff. All it will take is a little education.

Under the tutelage of the dominatrix, Miss Sarah, Jess learns to cope with her unexpected training schedule, the increasingly erotic chill she experiences each time she survives a new level of correction, and a truly sexy exercise routine.

Temporarily distracted from her intimidating rule over Fable’s top floor by an enigmatic artist, Mrs Peters begins to plan how she can secure his obedient assistance, in grooming Jess into the perfect submissive…

Okay, so first I usually pull quotes from a book, so that later when I review it, I a.) can you give you a tiny taste of what’s in store and b.) sometimes you just need a frame of reference. What happened here with this book is, I have nothing to give you.

What also happened here is that I learned something of myself; I am not in any way shape or form interested in reading about the F/F dynamic when it comes to my sexual and BDSM story time. I simply require peen (cock). At the end of the day, hearing about lapping away at a vagina is just not for me. Dare I say that it made the book a little boring and the only reason I didn’t DNF, it, was because I was reading it for a book challenge.

It’s not like it was a bad book either, because I think that I would have liked it, once I got past the fact that it wasn’t written in Victorian times, even though it sounded though it was, the premise was pretty good. The hotels front desk girl Jess Sanders, catches the eye of the resident Mistress of the house and so the fun begins.  This is no way romantic.  I mean was it?  Maybe someone else read it and though, wow how sweet.  Rather I felt like it was a story about one woman’s self discovery.

Each of the scenes were fun to read and they were certainly of the BDSM variety that I like, they were just missing that male element (for me). It’s not to say that there weren’t any males in the book at all, they were present, they just weren’t in any dominant role. I should have guessed it though by the synopsis of the story, but I think I’ve had my head so far into male/female territory that I thought that maybe one may just turn up. Be warned, they don’t (well not enough)

If you like F/F this book is for you. If you like female Domme’s, this book is definitely for you. If you like cock… well you may be a little disappointed.

Not to say that I won’t be back for more of Kay Jaybee’s writing. I’m tempted to read out the rest of this series, because I think, if I read the synopsis correctly, there are some men in a future story. Men of the Dominant kind. Now that I can really get behind. Sadly this series isn’t a high priority for me, so it may be a while until I get to finish it out. Oh well…

Finally Use [Songs of Perdition Book #2] CD Reiss

I don’t know what was going on with Amazon, but CD Reiss’ Use (Songs of Perdition Book #2), was finally released in the Kindle store this evening.  I kid you not when I say I waited all damn day for this book to go live. It’s there now, so if you were waiting; go, go, go!

Use (Songs of Perdition Book 2) – [Kindle Edition] 99¢

I thought of Deacon, my master, the one who had helped me function, and who I had betrayed. Maybe one day I’d remember the sticky web of circumstances that put us both in the stables, but did it matter? In the end, did I stab him to be free of him?

And free to what?
To whore? Snort? Party?
Or free to be normal?

**This ends sequence one**

Heed this.
This book contains non-consensual sex, presented in a non-erotic way.

I can’t wait to jump back on this rollercoaster. I also found out that part 2, to her book Spin [Songs of Corruption] has a release some time in September.

Keeping it Dark

Am I in a dark place?  I have to wonder because some of what I’ve read lately has had some seriously dark/taboo undertones.  In some cases, they aren’t undertones at all, but rather neon flashing lights.

Veiled Innocence – a fathers shocking hatred of his daughter
Pleasure – a husband who beats his wife
Bang – I can’t even go there it’s just so depressing
The Girl in 6E – oh the gruesomeness!! Though an inexplicably fun read!

Did I spoil myself with the light and fluffy romance novels?  I was going to read the In the Company of Killers series next, but I don’t know if I can go there.  Do I want more darkness?  When will I start seeing the light again?   Maybe this is what I need though?  A little time away from the millionaires, billionaires, CEOs, the playboys and perfect, oh so perfect men.   The gushy lovey story with the will they, well of course they will, predictability.  Am I sure that I want to give that up for a while longer?  Can I?

I think that I can.  In fact, I will just a little bit more.  There’s something nice about having a change.  As long as the change is in the Erotic wheel house… I won’t be straying to far from that in the least.  Well, not on purpose.   So here we go again… what’s in store for Sarai?!

Killing Sarai (In the Company of Killers) [kindle edition – $2.99]

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story…

Maybe after all of that, once I’ve gotten my fill, I’ll rummage my way through some friendly smut.  Well, maybe not too friendly.

Book Recommendations

As you may or may not know I have a Goodreads account.  I am frequently there checking out possible books to read, organizing my book lists etc, etc, etc I am constantly adding, adding and adding more books.

I was wondering though if there was a book or books that you would like to recommend for me to read?  It’s one thing to choose books based on goodreads recommendations, but I would love to hear from like minded readers and see what you think I would enjoy.

So while I appreciate any suggestions, I’ll let you know what I don’t like or rather I’m not interested in;

Rock Stars
High School Teens
Some College teens.  I prefer old college if any at all.

I love

Dark Erotica
Alpha Male
Assholes – really, I really love an asshole!
Filthy, filthy dirty talk… the more the better.
Some Historical… Victorian, Regents,

While I prefer love/romance to be a focus, I know that’s not always the case.  In those instances, if the book is simply good, I believe that should be enough and I’m willing to give it a shot.

So… What do you suggest?

Restraint – Erica Chilson

This is Part 1 in the multi story arc “Mistress & Master” Series by Erica Chilson.

Mistress & Master of Restraint series begins with Katya Waters’ Journey of Self-discovery in Restraint. 

Katya Waters moves to a new city for the job of her dreams. Her need to explore her darker-side leads her to the club, Restraint, where she meets the mysterious “Boss”. The Boss pulls her into a thrilling game of Kat & Mouse. Follow her exciting journey as she connects the mystery of her past with her thrilling present. 

I was not impressed.  First and foremost; it is not a love story in any sense of the word.  That is fine.  I don’t mind that.  It’s more a story of self discovery, acceptance and learning to deal with the harsh shit that life sometimes throws at you.

OK! This book started out fine, pretty good in fact and conceptually, I like this book.  Overall however, it’s terrible.  Is it wrong of me to review this book clearly from a clerical point of view?  I can’t help it, it’s all I thought about the entire time I read the damn thing.

Let’s start with this… upon reading the book description from Amazon it tells you that  it was

*** Freshly edited & expanded*** July 3rd, 2013

By who?  Whoever did it, did an exceptionally poor job and I feel like that’s me being kind.  I at times, had to throw in the odd word here or there, just for things to make sense.  I shouldn’t have to do that, but there I was doing it ever few pages.  There were grammatical errors everywhere and the tone and voice of Katya, at times didn’t match the overall tone of her character.  She threw around the word “ya” when really “you” would have been so much better and fitting.  It didn’t feel like the other characters were running into this problem.  Which was why I was at loss as to why she was so scattered.

What frustrated me the most however,  was that there was a specific event in Katya’s life, the true focus of the story, that was repeatedly told throughout.  I don’t mean a mere mention of either.  It was literally copy and pasted again.  Through out.  While, yes I could understand the overall need for it’s repetition, it just felt like it weighed the book down unnecessarily.  Each time it came about the piece was expanded to shed light on the event. It took up pages.  I ended up skimming those pieces all together, looking only for things that maybe where added to flush out the scene.

It’s a shame really, because like I said conceptually, it’s really good. It’s so totally fucked up. These characters live in a really screwed up bubble, that just works for them. There is no romance here.  Not in the traditional sense at all.  But for this story, it’s okay.  It doesn’t need to be.  I get why there is no love.  I get why there is a need to fix something so horrible.  While the fixing piece is extremely unconventional, who cares.  None of this is real anyway.   Did I pick up this book because I was seeking that HEA.  No I got it because I wanted Dark Erotica.  I like that stuff.

But here’s my problem, it took me a shocking 4 days to get through this.  I wanted to know what was going to happen to these people.  I just didn’t want to be subjected to the massacre of it’s writing.

Now, the writer was nice enough to include a preview of chapter 1 from the second book, Unleashed, into this book.  I did read it (which I don’t typically do).
It did make me want to read the next book  however, I don’t think that I can do it.  Yes, I want to know more.  I do.  So much.  But if I find out that I’ve paid for another book, littered with grammatical woes and discombobulated tone, well, I’ll be really pissed off with myself.  Yeah, I know that I should read a book and enjoy it for it’s story, but at what point does it’s poor editing ruin it for you?  I know I found mine with this.

I can’t even give it a proper review because it’s pissed me off that much.  I’m just going to walk away now.  I’m irritated.  I’ll go read something else.

If you do want to read this book.  Find it here from Amazon it’s selling for $3.99.  Tell me if I’m being unkind?
