I especially enjoyed the focus on consent and the power of choice in determining how "play" scenarios took place and the importance of personal empowerment and pleasure.
In the name of honesty, I confess to both being an avid reader of erotica and a writer in the genre, which means I’ve come across some very bad excuses for books over the years. However, as any genre, there are expectations and unwritten rules to any erotica story. Sonni de Soto manages to comply with said rules while going so much deeper than the average BDSM writer. I’m convinced her introduction to the book explains clearly why she’s able to do that. Most of the authors who write about BDSM aren’t into the lifestyle and the fact that Sonni is makes a hell of a difference in the most positive way.
Having said that, there’s also the issue of one’s ability to translate personal experience into good writing. Sonni accomplishes that and then some. Her scenes are quite realistic and convincing; her characters are well fleshed-out and believable. She’s got a sarcastic sense of humor that appeals to me and a strong author’s voice.
Interestingly enough her feminist stance was the only thing that bothered me a bit and made it a little harder for me to connect with Max in the first third of the book. I’m aware the writer needed to build Max’s character and present her to the reader but, personally, I could’ve done without some of her stubbornness. I’m a feminist and quite stubborn myself – ask any of my friends and family LOL – but I’m sure I’d have changed my mind about a relationship, which I thought was doomed to fail, if it lasted for over five (happy) years. In fact, I’ve done exactly that a couple of times. Haha So Max’s denial to accept Kat and Peter’s happily kinky marriage didn’t convince me and distracted me in the beginning of the story. Once I got into it though, I was in for a HOT ride.
Another quality of Show me, Sir, which stands out and showcases Sonni di Soto’s talent, is offering a truthful depiction of a lifestyle that has been so badly portrayed lately. I was already a converted before reading this book, but if I had had any doubts about the possibility of balancing out a woman’s assertive personality with her innermost (and unconfessed/unrealized) desire to be a submissive, they would have disappeared. In fact, only those who don’t understand the lifestyle think these two aspects are mutually exclusive.
From the blurb and the cover you would expect full on explicit sex or to the least over the top escapades that would leave you blushing for more. But the sex was rare, the bondage interesting and the voyeurism intriguing. The main characters are strong, beautiful, sexy and not the everyday typical or traditional.
I got me a read that gave back to me. If BDSM is not your thing or you are new to the world. This would be a good read for you to drop in on. If you are into hard-core BDSM take a look and shift your gears a bit. Voyeurism with a bang.

There are some parts when it felt rather slow, but mostly it kept my attention. I bought it on offer based on the free preview, but I didn't feel the rest of the book quite lived up to the promise of the beginning.
