OK if you ignore the plot
November 23, 2012
Well, the sex scenes are OK. They're not very kinky for something marketed as bdsm, but they're fine.
What's not ok is the persistent attempts to use psychology as a plot device. For example, After a scene goes bad the woman's partner goes to the manager of the club and the two of them ( without the woman's consent or knowledge) call a psychologist who provides a diagnoses over the phone based only on the description her partner provides. Then, again without the woman's knowledge or consent, shares this diagnosis with the two men.
This story also uses the " magical penis" trope, wherein if only the woman has sex with this one special guy, years of mental illness will be erased! Yes, the goes to therapy, and the descriptions of those sessions are just as terrible as the diagnosis scene.
So, if you are a mental health professional or are turned off by the depiction of unethical mental health professionals, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.
If you want some tolerable smut framed by a ridiculous and insulting plot then go ahead, though there are plenty of better books available.
