I am a huge fan of Alannah Lynne’s Heat Wave series, so I was really looking forward to diving into the spin-off series. We got a taste of Pandora’s Playground in the Heat Wave series and I am excited to get more time to explore the club. But I was also happy that the entirety of this novel didn’t take place in the club. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the way Dom/submissive relationships were portrayed in this book altogether and I loved it. I expected Muriel to spend nearly the entire book as a submissive and for Matthew to be an over the top Dom because that’s what I’m used to reading in most BDSM books. Alannah did such an amazing job showing that there is a balance in a submissive’s life. And that there is usually a lot more give and take in a D/s relationship outside of the bedroom.
I really loved Muriel. I was a little apprehensive about her at first. I wasn’t sure a year was going to be long enough for her to move on from her husband’s death, but nothing felt rushed in her moving on and finding her submissive again and finding love again. I loved Matthew right away, but I do have a soft spot for tortured heroes. He had a lot going on in his head and was definitely weighed down by a lot of guilt. I felt horrible for him and wanted to wrap him up in a big hug. Then I got to see him with Muriel and I really fell for him. What an incredible man.
Alannah definitely started this new series off with a bang. Lucas played a role in this book and I am more intrigued than ever to get to the bottom of that man. I cannot wait for his book, which thankfully is coming next. That moment will not come soon enough for me. I knew I'd end up loving this book so much that I pre-ordered it even though I received a review copy. I can't get enough of Alannah's writing.
Arc provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
Muriel Stewart is a submissive woman who has been grieving the sudden loss of her husband and Dom, Ian for nearly a year. Her husband was part owner of Pandora's Playground, with two of his closest friends. Ian's friends and business partners, Lucas and Mathew convince Muriel it is time to revisit the lifestyle and the friends that she left behind when she so suddenly lost her husband. She's not sure she is ready for that step, but she goes anyway and while they have a surprise for her, it may be the feelings of Mathew that surprise her even more.
Mathew Galinda is a divorce attorney and was Ian's best friend since his teenage years. While Ian was like a brother to him, he couldn't help having romantic feelings for Muriel - feelings he never, ever planned to act on. Now that he and Lucas have gotten Muriel back to the club, will the night the three of them spend together change everything he thought before? Is it possible that Muriel has harbored the same feelings for him that he has for her?
Alannah Lynne has created wonderful characters and has crafted a story that is about love and trust. I greatly enjoyed this first installment in this new series and anxiously await the next one!
Mathew and Muriel are the perfect couple, but Mathew does not know how or if he can be part of a relationship. Muriel steps in and with her gentleness and submissive side coming out of mourning as well, helps Mathew see that the guilt he has been feeling for something he could not control.
The story has its very kinky moments and they are very memorable. Mathew is one very hot and sexy Dom and Muriel can’t help but fall for him and offer him her submission, something she has been missing since losing her husband. Once the air is cleared you can see such a love between the characters that it literally made me shed a tear or two.
Alannah has such a way with her characters, very expressive, very emotional and very passionate! Very highly recommended!
