Compelling smorgasbord 4.5 stars….
Well what a compelling smorgasbord of submission and dominance. This was an original concept..told from the point of view of a young woman being gently introduced into the ‘lifestyle’… Jared is her lover and teacher and educates her by relating a series of stories illustrating a variety of relationships…with the aim to instruct and entice..although to be fair I am not sure Jared always chose very wisely, if his plan was to encourage her unerring involvement…
Each story is short but packed with interesting plots and diverse characters.. whether from the past, present or future they all have a tale to be told. My favourite story was Crazed..I loved the concept but will say no more because it has to be read without any spoilers…Right from the start of this book I was captivated by the relationship between Jared and his lover/ ‘would be’ student; they were only centre stage for a short while but they made a big impression, and my only disappointment was that there was no epilogue or conclusion to their story..I would love to have known their endings…
This is a compendium of delights and dark temptations and I loved every minute spent in the company of these fascinating characters as they navigated their imagined worlds and found their ever afters, whether happy or otherwise…princes and princesses in fairy stories; wicked Madams; sweet submission; love, hate, indifference; murder and mayhem, this book gives a tantalising taste of it all….
