I loved how the author moved through the story focusing on the point of view of 1 character. Each person's "story" brought forward a unique experience of BDSM and sexuality in general. Ivory made me giggle. In many ways I was glad that Mami/Missy and Big Daddy/Pup dropped out of the class early; with the exception of Madame Gretchen herself, I found the characters' true-to-life anti-switch thoughts tiresome. Although I do feel that the author proved with her writing that she may have been able to utilize Madame Gretchen to do some lovely teaching about how incorrect the ideas about switches are.
While I did find much of Madame Gretchen's "pro-Domme angst" inexplicable/irritating, I was very touched at her reaction to the letters, especially Drake's pleading for an "Old Guard style training."
After reading Madame Gretchen by Kayla Lords, the first thing I had to do was take a cold shower because this was one of the sexiest, most erotic stories that I have ever read. Then as if writing such steamy sensual scenes wasn’t enough, Ms. Lords made the story so sweetly emotional that I felt it in my very soul.
Madame Gretchen is a Domme at the most exclusive BDSM club in the area, The Iron Maiden. In order to receive your membership in the club, you must participate in her six week course designed to not only teach you about the BDSM lifestyle, but also to help you get in touch with your wants and needs. The class began with six students – a mix of Dominants, submissives and switches.
With such a diverse group of characters, there was someone and something to relate to for every reader. As Madame Gretchen challenged each participant sexually, she challenged them emotionally. Watching each person overcome their fears and find their inner peace was actually inspirational and touched me deeply. I understand the fear of baring your body, I understand the fear of being judged and found lacking, and I understand the reality of self-doubt. Ms. Lords touched on each one in such a way as to help you conquer those fears just as the characters did.
What is amazing is that Ms. Lord, despite the limitations of a novella, was able to create three-dimensional characters that I believed in completely. Each of the class participants was authentic and I found myself cheering them on in their quest to find happiness.Read more ›
Category /Genre: Erotica, BDSM
Recommended for: 18+ due to sexual content
Received from: Kayla Lords (Beta read)
Grammar/editing: A – near perfect
This is a stand-alone novel. If you have ever visited Ms. Lords’ website (A Sexual Being), you may have read a short story there about a visit to The Iron Maiden. She has expanded on the dungeon with the tale of the membership process.
Since I know Kayla Lords personally (as in I know her real name hehehe), and have spent some time with her and her Sir, I teased her that I was going to try to match characters with some of the real people we met…Not saying too much there.
I personally identified with one of the characters…. so much so that it brought me to tears. No, she didn’t use me as a character, but I think most of us would find some elements in at least one of the characters that we will recognize in ourselves. Who do you identify with – the Dom, the Domme, one of the switches, one of the submissives, perhaps the baby-girl, or the rope bunny? Each of the characters is uniquely different and represents at least one of the many general groups within the BDSM community.
Kayla is an amazing author who is gifted in providing an erotic tale while also giving us a kink education that is fun for us and the characters.
Will we be returning to The Iron Maiden in the future with Madame Gretchen? One can only hope (littles are in charge of pouting and begging – whatever works to make it happen!)
Madame Gretchen takes you on a hot journey with a little twist. A very popular BDSM night club requires their "possible" members to endure a series of test/ classes to see if they are worthy.
The author takes you on this journey with a Dominatrix that has a sadistic way of showing members their true nature. Madame Gretchen is hot with curves and her latex suits, high heels, purple lipstick the way she holds herself and demands respects leaves the students drooling.
You also meet the mix of types when it comes to students from the typical kinky couple who think they know everything, the shy girl who thinks she isn't beautiful because she isn't skinny or model material. You also meet a heavier voluminous woman who is old enough to be most readers mom or grandma she carries herself with the love of wise years. The attitude most wish we had: "take me as I am or walk the hell the other way"! You will also meet two men my goodness Madame had a big class... The first man is middle aged and been through a lot be careful with him though ladies he is a sub through and through. Then of course the egotistical jerk, he got the body of a God and he knows it. It's a great time watching him get knocked off him pedestal.
Throughout this book you will need a fan because it is gonna get HOT!!! They will learn to submit, lead and best of all they learn things of themselves they didn't know or maybe we're afraid of.
I thoroughly enjoyed the heat, scenes, torture-oh yes-and the surprises, as it kept me captivated to the end.
