After far too much lackluster sex with her now-ex-boyfriend, Kristen Locke isn't just ready to try something new, she's ready to try everything. And as luck would have it, two of her good friends are more than willing to introduce her to the kinkier side of life: Experienced dominant Scott Moore wants to bring out the submissive in her. Neighbor and voyeur Matt Sommers quite literally sees the exhibitionist in her.
Little by little, they open up a whole new world to her, and Kristen's about to learn that love can be found in the most unusual places....
Narration, Charlee Prescott - Pretty Good. There's a lot of characters that make minor appearances and three main characters that dominate the book. Easy to differentiate characters, really gets into the sex scenes LOL!
So, First, this is a BDSM book, so if that's not your thing? Welp, then nothing to see here...move right along...
Kristin dumps her wanker of a boyfriend and ends up telling one of her best friends about their lackluster sex life. Turns out, he's a Dom and when she tells him she'd like a little more kink in her life, he suggests that if she's willing, he'd take her under his wing and show her the ropes. (wink, wink)
Meanwhile, across the alley, in a window near you, is her neighbor Matt, who accidentally saw Kris in her altogether one day and now secretly (or maybe not so secretly) watches her from his dark apartment, when she's doing uh...fun things. Matt happens to also be one of her best friends and they run together and play poker once a week and begin a friends with benefits vanilla kinda arrangement. A very HOT vanilla kinda arrangement.
This book is really sort of a lesson in BDSM. Scott is teaching Kristin and because of a bad experience in his past, he takes it slow. He's so caring and sexy, honestly, he sounds like the perfect Dom for a newbie. Any-who, I'm not gonna lie, this is a book with a lotta sex and it ticks off a laundry list of BDSM activities: Blindfolding, light bondage, orgasm denial, exhibitionism, voyeurism, switching, threesomes, (OMG Byron! Yes, please) flogging, anal, wax play, ice play, uhm... close enough. Oh, and Scott is Polyamorous!
At the heart of it though is the friendship she has with both of these guys. They've both pretty much had the hots for Kristin since before she got with Alex (The wanker) and when the intimacy builds, it ultimately leads to some rough decisions when the sex for fun becomes a little more than just sex.
I loved how the intimacy between both couples developed - and their honesty and communication. I think more than just a lot of hot sex, this book really shows how intimate the relationship is between a Dom and their submissive.
I enjoyed this one!

If you want a book full of sex.... this is your book. There really isn't a story line. It's about just what the summary says it is. Doesn't give any background on the characters, it is basically just sex. It was hot sex with BDSM so if you aren't into that then don't listen. The narrator was not the one for the job but she wasn't the worst I have heard. Would I recommend, no. Would I listen again, no....
Oh, dear Mother Goddess, this book is on fire!!! "Fifty shades of Grey", please step aside, you are moved over to the children's section!
This story shows what authentic, safe, sane and consensual power exchange in an erotic context looks like! It also shows how a serious dominant man should be, with a strong alpha male sexuality, combined with sophisticated skills and lots of emotional intelligence! Warning for VERY explicit language! Damn!!!!
It also gives a very positive insight into polyamory, and how to navigate such a lifestyle.
