I wanted more character development and a more comprehensive plot. I felt the book could have ended three chapters early and I could have done without the last minute soul healing mission in the shack, corny and unnecessary.
This is one of the most intriguing erotic novels that I have ever read. Even though this deals with the rather popular subject in romance writing currently of the BDSM lifestyle/pleasure choice, it is not a story about someone experimenting in a club under the watchful eye of a more experienced partner. This is a thought-provoking and truthful treatment of the fact that some people find sexual release due to the infliction of small amounts of pain by their trusted partner. The fact that some people find pleasure in complete submission to a trusted partner, knowing they can relinquish control to this person and they will care for them and give them exactly what they need. And the fact that some people find their sexual pleasure with another partner who completely submits to them, who gives them their complete trust that they know them well enough to know what they need and when they need it. Nothing is done is anger or hate or with any other goal than their ultimate sexual release.
I have rewritten this review quite a few times and I find it very difficult not to reveal essential parts of the story as I explain each character as I saw them. I refuse to do that because it makes me nutty when a reviewer does not indicate "spoilers ahead" but simply reveals something essential from the story. Instead, I will say that this book had a raw, hard won truthfulness to it that floored me. I found it mesmerizing and overwhelming at the same time and had to stop and take a couple of days' break to let the emotions swirl and settle in me. This was thought-provoking in its intensity; I loved how the story was simply told - no judgments, no pronouncements, just a story of grief and pain and sorrow and loss and devastation and guilt and passion. There was courage and bravery and strength and the depth of the sensuality and the emotions between each character were so powerful I still think of it with wonder. The author brought peace and a sense of rightness to the story of Lily and Tony and Adam.
I look forward to exploring other works by this author for a very, very long time.
Guilty Pleasure Book Reviews: Love does abound in Gilded Lily. A tortured love from Tony. A heartfelt love with Nicolas. And, a true love between Lily and Adam. There is a lot of sex in Gilded Lily, from masturbation to orgies, a Masquerade Ball where anything goes and in the slave shack where Lily is kept until she let's go of her fears. But, everything is done out of love and Lily and Adam have their happily-ever-after. My question, what happens to our tormented Tony?
