In Chelle's story, we have Ret North, a Dominant, well known among the patrons of The Club, who has started to lose interest. Lately, and rather disconcertingly, regardless who he acts out a scene with, it just isn't doing it for him the way it used to.
Alese Kane is what's known as a 'switch'. Having joined The Club to explore her submissive streak, she finds herself struggling to truly let go with any of the partners that she's chosen so instead has tried to learn to become a Dom to see if that's where her true nature lies, but perhaps even more so, seems unable to fully immerse herself into that role either.
After a rather nasty encounter and a public confrontation, Alese is just about prepared to walk away from the whole thing, beginning to doubt that she'll ever find the perfect niche where she fits in with her particular kink.
Ret on the other hand is quite sure that all she needs to fully embrace her own submissive nature is the right Master, and he's just elected himself for the job.
What follows is more than just a series of steamy sequences where these two burn up the pages, though it certainly is that. Hidden beneath however, is a very human story of two people building the trust needed for them to be able to explore the kind of relationship that both secretly desire. A relationship that isn't just about acting out taboo fantasies with a stranger, but about respect acceptance, understanding and possibly even love.
I loved how Chelle built the tension between these two, yet balanced that with the underlying desire that each had for the possibility of finding something more than either had ever experienced before
This was a very quick read for me, yet it hit all of the right buttons. I'm never surprised that I love a book by this author, but I was a little intrigued to see where she would go with this story. I'm not used to reading novellas by her that introduce entirely new characters that we have absolutely no back story for.
I really enjoyed this story. Was it super sexy? Yes. Was it completely different from anything else the author has written? Yes. Although we have seen some BDSM elements and glimpses from the Gallo crew in the past, this was a whole new world for us. I wasn't sure if this story would feel rushed when I saw the page count, but it was perfectly paced. It wasn't a straight to sex kind of story with no gradual development to the relationship. Instead, it had all of my favorite elements. A smoking hot alpha male who can turn your insides to liquid with just one glance, a strong independent woman who doesn't need a man to be happy.
While BDSM has elements of control and dominance, it's not all about being lead around by a leash like many may believe. It's something far more complicated and fulfilling to those in the lifestyle. While this book is set in that genre, the part I enjoyed the most was when the characters found that connection that we are all searching for-someone who complements your wants and needs. Someone who you can trust with your heart and soul, and ultimately your life, that is able to enhance the weaknesses and vulnerabilities inside of you while allowing you to grow and flourish.
Ret and Alese were a perfect match. Alese was finally able to find someone who could give her everything she needed and more, and Ret was able to find that scared and lonely part of Alese and help her become stronger and more self-confident.
The only thing I wished were different was the length of the story. I simply wanted more. Will we get more of them in the future? I certainly hope so. This was another amazing story that was well developed and put forth. I highly recommend it!
Well, she's done it again! Chelle has rendered me nearly speechless with the awesomeness of this book. It's the dirtiest, steamiest, sexist book she's ever written! What I'd like to know is why she's been hiding this dirty, dirty mind from us for this long!!
This is the story of Alese and Ret and The Club a BDSM club located in a tiny town in Texas... I know what you're thinking, Texas? But yes it is and I think this could actually happen as it's these little sleepy towns where you least expect something like this....
Ret is a Domme and is very popular at The Club, but lately hasn't been achieving the same satisfaction he normally does and then there's Alese. She's what is called a Switch, she can either be a Dom or a submissive.
In reality though, she doesn't want to fully admit that she's a Sub but hasn't found the right Domme... until now!
I LOVED these two together. Ret is a true Domme and he knows that he can make Alese see that she's a submissive. How he does this, and I'm not afraid to admit this publicly, had me squirming in my seat on more than one occasion. It's clear Ms. Bliss did her homework in the writing of the scenes building up to when Ret finally takes her over the edge both physically and emotionally.
What I think is most important about this story is not only the dirty, raw, over the top sex, but it also enforces the amount of trust a D/s have to have in each other.
I sincerely hope this is a genre that we see again from Chelle because she's REALLY good it!!!
