intimate one. Lizzie was still a virgin although that subject never came up between the friends.
There was that infamous kiss they shared while at the Dungeon Fantasy Club but it was never mentioned between
the two friends. Lizzie knew she cared deeply for Solomon and wanted him to take her innocence but Solomon
didn't think he was the right man for Lizzie.
Pleasure Island was where Lizzie decided to give up her virginity and start living and loving again, she had no
real affection from her parents and her fiance cheated on her but never really showed much affection either.
That part of her life was ending this week, she vowed she would leave a different person than the one that
arrived on the island.
Of course Jared ended up playing a role in Lizzie's sexual awakening, he just seems to know what people
I can't wait for the next story based on Pleasure Island, it's bound to be another 5 star read for me!
Lizzie and Solomon have been invited to play multiple duets at Pleasure Island for the guest during the week of Thanksgiving. While Lizzie and Solomon have a thirteen-year history together, it has always been a platonic relationship. They both attended Julliard together, him playing piano and she the flute. Being the best of friends while at school, they have kept their relationship just that, friends. Secretly, they each had stronger feelings for the other but didn’t want to cross the friendship line and risk it.
Lizzie has been the dutiful daughter to cold-fish wealthy parents who never showed her affection or loving emotions. She has always capitulated to their demands rather than taking a stand. She even allowed them to make plans for whom she would marry to forge an alliance with his family. Her needs, her wishes, her desires, were never considered. Then when she catches her so-called fiancée with another woman, in her bed, in her apartment, and she calls off the wedding, somehow she is the one at fault.
“She didn’t need bells and whistles and romance. She needed to be wanted because she never really had been. Not by anyone. And in the end, that was what hurt the most.”
Solomon’s life turned upside down when he was sixteen, his mother cheated, his father caught her, and killed her lover. In one night, he loses both parents and finds himself sent to America to live with an Aunt. But his talent with the piano, and their support and a scholarship will land him in Julliard. Having heard that he was just like his father, he enjoys his dominant lifestyle of just playing with submissives, but never getting serious in a relationship.
“Solomon had allowed the ghosts of his past to control his future. And he’d shunned her, told her he wouldn’t touch her.”
The plot will have Lizzie deciding that she is going to seduce Solomon and lose her virginity at the ripe old age of thirty-one. When he spurns her attempt, she will be devastated. Determined that she will not leave Pleasure Island as a virgin, she will go to the club and be introduced to two Doms from Louisiana, but Solomon won’t even allow that to happen and embarrasses her in front of everyone.
“He had destroyed her with his words when all he wanted to do was keep her in his bed and had thought of nothing else but how incredible she’d felt in his arms; how right.”
The story brings out the importance of open and honest discussions. Two things that both Solomon and Lizzie seem to omit, and leads to confusion and anger. Both have strong feelings and emotions for each other and have a hard time acting on them without angst.
I was so outraged by how Solomon manipulated not only Lizzie but even the other Doms at the club. His martyrdom status of pushing her away, to protect her, was cruel and painful. I’m glad that she took the right steps, sought out the right people, and was willing to humble herself with honesty to help clear the way for them. If two people needed each other, someone to love and support, it was Solomon and Lizzie. The story has a great cast of characters and explicit sex scenes. The chemistry between Solomon and Lizzie is electric and sizzles off the pages because there is love.
“It turned out to be worth the wait. He’d always been worth the wait.”
