I felt like a voyeur standing back in the corner watching the goings on in this story. I love the way the author took the time to explain things about the fetish community, so that us novice wouldn't need Google to get an understanding of what was going on. The story was hot and sexy, the story development was on point and this was an all around good read. I've started the second installment and can't wait to see the twists and turns the storyline is going to take!!!! I'd tell anyone to give this a read and fast.
This novel was like none I'd ever read, smoking hot! On the one hand, Ramesses and Neferterri were no different from any other hard working, successful couple with a family. However, there was a secret side of them where they lived a sexy lifestyle full of fetishes and BDSM in which the author brings to us in high definition. The scenes are very vivid and are told in a way that explains the BDSM lifestyle to those who might not be familiar with those types of scenarios and terminology.
This book is more than sex and erotica and that's what makes a great novel. Ramesses has to fall back on the skills his father, a former policeman, taught him to get get to the bottom of situations that could've easily threatened the secret society that he is a part of; he also has to use those same skills to save his own life. This is the first book I've read of Shakir Rashaan's but it definitey won't be the last. So glad this is a series because the fun is just beginning. Kudos, Mr Rashaan! Enjoyed it!
Now, at first, you may be put off by the grammar changes, which he explains, but as time goes on, it won't be a problem, which is helped by his writing style. He breaks the third wall in this book, (Think Zach in Saved by the Bell) and it helps break down their subculture which helps you not be confused. I liked the dialogue in the book between the people "in the life" as i call it. It reminds me of Shakespeare times or ancient Rome, (M' Lord, M' lady, Goddess)
Oh yeah, there's hot sex, sex, and more sex. There should be a disclaimer saying that the book might have you calling people up in the heat of the night that you might regret calling the morning after. Mr. Rashaan doesn't disappoint witht he threesomes, foursomes and my favorite scene is when Ramesses and his wife break in a new submissive. All I can say is..whoa.
The only thing I'd say is I would love to read a prequel someday about the how Ramesses met his beloved, and how he met Amentenhop, his mentor who has his own challenges in the book. I recommend this book, but if you find yourself being "awakened" by the hot sex scenes in this book, just remember, He/she is your ex for a reason.
This was my first read for this author. Reading erotica and some books relative to D&S, I was totally not prepared for what really happens. Yeah I am well knowledgeable with the spanking and bonding, but The Awakening goes beyond that and explains the mindset and doesn't sugar coat. Setting the scenery of the sexual activity especially the collar procedure, the author produces such a realistic setting it was though the reader was there. This was a great buy on iPhone Kindle. With no noticeable editing errors, this author delivered just what his book title states - An Awakening. An Awakening as to what really goes down when it comes to this community. Taking the reader into Ramesses' world produces a storyline that is a definite page turner. Pact with twists and turns, Shakir educates the reader, that to maintain such a lifestyle, that one has to be totally committed and there are rules that must be followed and key players that must be utilized. It is not all about sex and getting yours, there is reason . Stepping outside those rules delivers unwanted but realistic results.
