So it's really good to see (and read) stories not just written by but appealing to dominant/sadistic women. And Pet Gentleman certainly does have such an appeal.
I really like Pearl O'Leslie blog – both the sexy posts and the thoughtful ones - but I was reluctant to give this novella length piece a go, because I'm not a huge fan of non-consent fantasies. But I'm glad I did and Pet Gentleman worked nicely for me.
Maybe it was the setting? I'm a sucker for world building and the totalitarian, Anglo-Ruritanian steam-punkish universe of Pet Gentleman both appealed in itself and added plausibility to the story.
Or maybe it was the convincingly effective way in which the main character utilized Stockholm Syndrome, classic torture/brainwashing techniques and behaviorist conditioning to break and recreate her subject and yet remained strangely human in that. And it was fun to imagine myself with her set of skills, her resources - and her lack of scruples. I'd like to know more of Anette's inner workings and of the world she inhabits to see where her sense of selfish entitlement and amoral innocence come from. If the title of the next installment in the series is anything to go by, some reveals might be coming. I'm looking forward to them.
As to Philip/Adam, I wanted more insight. He is neither a masochistic sub or an evildoer in need of punishment. He's Anette's project, picked for reasons having nothing to do with HIS sexuality. His inner transformation, although partially explained by his treatment, remains a bit of mystery. He's stoic and noble and rather good at that whole enduring thing (yummmm) but isn't he bothered by his growing mental enslavement and attraction? At least internally? And if not, why not? There's a bit about that towards the end, but I'd have loved more, on that and on his sexual evolution, throughout the story.
I can feel anybody reading this getting impatient. "This is erotica! Stop going on about world construction and characters and tell us about the sexy bits! Were they hot? Did you come?"
OK then. They were hot. Some very hot. Anette's sadism is thorough but within realms of realism, her arousal in response to Philip's pain and the sight and feel of his marked body convincing and very relateable, her utter selfishness both delightful and chilling.
And I did.
