It wasn't a horrible book...just not a great read for me.
I read lots of BDSM and love very dark stories about it along with murder, rape, slavery and non-consensuality and I usually enjoy them very much, but.....this book.....for most of the book it felt too close to actual human trafficking. It was too close to what could be true life tragedy for so many. Then, there was the absolutely unbelievable idiocy of the protagonist and what seemed like zero character growth and self realization throughout the majority of the book. It was so completely unbelievable that a young girl in her 20's could be so completely and utterly gullible and acquiescent about her own treatment.
I guess I'm of the mind that if you're going to deal with these dark subjects like this book is addressing then you want to see a protagonist being active in trying to overcome what's happening and not just allowing things to continue to happen to them like a victim. If you're looking for a happy romance then maybe that mindset works fine, but to combine the two in the way this author did, was just too much of a stretch and hard to stomach. Yeah, I know it's fantasy, but come on, it's got to be believable enough to make it fantasy...that's the point!
And really? I could care less about brand names of designer clothing ...in fact the fact that they're wearing a XXX designer black dress tells me far less than actually describing the dress in detail. Name dropping designer names is something a 16 yr old might do.
Yes, I finished the book. I wanted to know if there was a point and while the end did have a HEA, it left me feeling cheated. 80% of the book was watching the character just sort of let life happen around her and then as things continued around her, so got some glimpses at truths and started thinking a little bit for herself, but even in the end, it just felt like too much had happened to redeem a truly happy ending.
I gave it two stars because there was definite promise in the story line and this could have truly been an epic that surpassed anything out there that's been written but it got lost in designer names and unbelievable/unrealistic childish BDSM fantasy. When you try to mix that with the reality of human sex trafficking, it just doesn't work.
It chronicles the journey of its heroine Miller Smytheson from her father's erotic-art gallery into the depths of the eponymous club, a secret BDSM institution designed to produce perfect submissives and to pair them with their ideal Masters. Through her darkly erotic trials Miller is enabled to explore and embrace her submissive nature, but must also discover which of two enigmatic men can best dominate her body while winning her heart.
Rich in detail and broad in scope, Cinderella Club is a vivid and exciting adult take on the traditional fairytale, charting one woman's bizarre sexual odyssey towards her ultimate fulfillment. Its imagination is uninhibited and its story is remarkably well-conceived, delving into the pasts and family histories of its main characters to resolve intriguing mysteries. It is also a smorgasbord of sexual fantasy ranging from the wildly romantic to the sinister (and a whole lot in between), the encounters both explicit and emotionally rooted.
I enjoyed this book immensely - a satisfying fusion of erotica and romance from an impressive new talent.
There is no way of describing this book. It keeps you on your toes, never completely understanding whats going on until the very end when the author explains it all, with twists and interesting back stories that allow everything to fall into place.
What I liked?...the suspense and the realness of it, there was no sugar coating.
What I didn't like?...Some seens were scary graphic as well as heartlessly violent...almost had me putting the book down, but Im glad I didnt. Also, the main character is an idiot. I wonder if the author made her this way so when she gets slapped you, the reader, dont feel so bad bc you kinda wanted to slap her too.
