Thomas Jett, formerly her personal assistant and currently a rising software developer within her company, has an unusual solution for the one vice Lina can't seem to control. All she has to do is submit to his Dominance and he'll guide her to replace the nasty habit with new thoughts and behaviors. She's at once repelled and intrigued by the idea. Could it possibly work? And is it really about the cigarettes? Or does she have a deep need to relinquish control to someone stronger?
As the Unorthodox Therapy progresses, Lina's shocked to realize how much she craves Thomas's control, but she's terrified--what if the company or their clients find out about her private predilections?
I love the way we get a sense not only of Lina's misgivings about giving up control to Thomas, but we also understand his concerns and fears about being the kind of Dom Lina needs. The BDSM sex is hot and steamy, but let me tell you, about 3/4 of the way through, a sudden turn of events had me flipping pages so fast I nearly blew up my Kindle. By the end, I was breathless and dying to read the next installment.
Don't miss Unorthodox Therapy! Lilah E. Noir, write like the wind! I need to know what happens next for Lina and Thomas. 5 HUGE STARS!
This is a story of BDSM, of a Slave/Master relationship and yet it is so much more. I found the characters, Lina, the successful, entrepreneurial businesswoman and Thomas, the slightly geeky employee with a hidden secret, to be incredibly compelling.
I'm not an enormous fan of erotica but I loved this book and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to lovers of a good story and/or erotica.
If you don't fall into any of those categories, this book is probably not for you.
It should be noted that this book will make you want to make tender love to a cigarette.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book for the Goodreads TPE Bar.
An interesting premise, Unorthodox Therapy explores addiction and the effects BDSM can have on psychological outcomes through punishments and rewards and a deep acceptance of trust. Noir paints her characters vividly, flawed, real, and gritty at times. This is a psychological study of characters, emotional and poignant. A strong woman and an at-heart kind Dom, discover themselves as they explore their desire and secrets. It’s Noir’s adept writing that shows us into the minds of each character, through a dual POV. We see things as they unfold. We feel them. We are there, watching each nuance through the imagery and dialogue and beautifully-constructed sentences Noir weaves.
But this isn’t just erotic, though it very much is. The kink is high and harsh at times. This is no light BDSM, tie-me-up –with-a-soft-silk-tie kind of thing. It also isn’t quick I-want-to-be-aroused-in-the-bathroom-before-work kind of erotica either. Instead, it also comes with a killer story, a twist, and a thriller aspect reminiscent of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The characters have obstacles to overcome, demons to face, and choices to make about forgiveness.
I am a reader, always have been since I was very young. I love the classics and yearn for all things erotic. Unorthodox Therapy is a powerful read. It will leave you glued to the pages, perhaps having to break occasionally to let the ideas and writing sit for a bit. It has restored my faith in this genre, this genre that is beginning to be equated with silliness, titillation-only writing, lack of depth or meaning. There is a place for all of that. But that’s not why I began reading erotica early on with the likes of Anais Nin and Henry Miller. I read for the emotional pull I feel to characters, their growth and development. I like character-driven plots, and sexual awareness and exploration are a huge part of that. To ignore sexuality in writing is a ludicrous notion, as it is one of the things that truly connects the human spirit. Lilah E. Noir has created all that and more here, and I expect she will continue to do so in the sequel, which I eagerly await.
Throw into the mix two personal preferences of mine, dual POVs and a strong, vibrant woman Ms. Noir never once diminished to make her male lead appear more dominant, and you have a recipe for one amazing read. I eagerly await the next book in what promises to be a first-class trilogy.
