Publisher's Summary

As a beautiful young woman married to a much older, wealthy man, Joanna has the life of a woman of leisure: a great deal of comfort, and little satisfaction. With her husband “going through a phase” of disinterest in her sexually, Joanne decides to embark on a phase of her own....

Venturing out in the afternoons, she discovers the mysterious O, a woman whose employees help clients explore the bounds of pleasure and pain. Her initial experiences are a shock to the senses...a shock that leaves her wanting more. But as she gets deeper into this exciting and dangerous world, Joanna finds herself the victim of shifting alliances, and begins gathering secrets to plot a revenge that goes further than anyone could have imagined.

    Story
    "Soft Porn"

    This was not badly written. The emphasis was mostly on the build up to each event. Once something would get to the down and dirty, then it would not last long. There is nothing wrong with that, it just is not what I was hoping for. There are some interesting fantasies and probably some games many couples have played. Like playing doctor, or fondling each other under the table at a fancy restaurant.

    I did not listen to the last couple of hours. The story was heading for male submission and a mistress dressed in leather and I lost interest.

    Everybody is different, especially in erotica. I say if you like your erotica on the soft side, you should like this.

    Story
    "Wow! Just Wow!"

    I didn't realize when I downloaded this book that it was erotica. This erotica is very well written. It has a very well written plot. It starts page 1 and BAM, doesn't let up. The narrator is great. The sex is off the chain. The author does not hold anything back. I am not into BDSM (not sure I even got the acronym right) -- it is in this book but it's not heavy duty. This book is such a crazy fantasy. I highly recommend just for the fun of it. I didn't agree with the ending (won't give away) but loved the story. It was fun, fun, fun!

    Story
    "Loved most of this book. Did not like how it ended"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Hated it. I really felt like the main character punished....in a very cruel way....someone for being different. ..not much different than herself.


    Any additional comments?

    I still think this is worth reading. It is just my opinion that it ended bad.
