The Book That Started it All...

Overall, this is a great erotic read. It may even encourage you to spice up your love life. However, if you already have particular fetishes, it may not be the book for you. I found the plot of the story, aside for all of the overt sexual overtones to actually be quite interesting. The book definitely pulls you and and leaves you wanting more.
Easy read
Not straight erotica
Interesting story line
The BDSM aspects (people who are already exploring BDSM may find the book inaccurate)
Rating by reviewer:
worth reading, but not useful review

About author

Now that the nom de plume has been revealed I find it extremely interesting that this author is a woman. I know that she got her start from writing fan fiction for the Twilight series, and I believe because of this she has had a great deal of experience with building characters. Here characters are not only believable, but you can see bits of yourself in them, as they are relatable.

Content / Style / Audience

The book is fictional, but extremely relatable. If you are not familiar with BDSM, it is a pretty gentle approach that mixes an interesting plot line with erotica and BDSM. However, if you are already into BDSM, this may not be the book for you. It appeals to a number of different audiences because of the plot line, with a bit of an erotic twist. This book is by no means hardcore porn, or a guide for BDSM, it is about an adventure of two people, both testing their limits and learning from each other.
