Teaser Excerpt:

“Then we shall start at the beginning, as is correct,” he said, as he pointed towards the strange curved table. “Drape yourself over that,” he said. “Bottom up.”
Lydia crossed the room self-consciously to the soft, padded table and rested her toned stomach over the curve. It was surprisingly comfortable and she felt no muscle strains at all leaning over it. S

This is the First Book in yet another collection of erotic serials…
You know the drill… Each book is going to be short.
The first book is going to be free.
The book will be heavy on sex, light on plot...

Verdict: Not worth your time

Here we have the whole "Good Girl's intro to BDSM" plot, with nothing new or interesting added to set it apart from the masses… Sorry, its just not that great...

Why did I give this short a five star? Because I liked that the author put a note in the blurb of what to expect, I like when authors are self conscious about the content of the book.

This story was very good. Lydia is a sexaholic who cannot find anyone to satisfy her needs, so she turns to the world of BDSM, where she meets the smoking hot man. She is surprised by how fast and hard she falls for him, this mystery man Jack.

Two stars according to Goodreads means it's okay. And it was, considering it was a free introduction to a series. The sex and BDSM elements were good, but nothing we haven't seen before. Perhaps the rest of the series will have something more to look forward to.

This story just didn't catch me. It didn't feel like the story really had any kind of a resolution, and was more a premise for a sex scene- a very explicit sex scene, but a sex scene nonetheless.

I think I might have enjoyed it more with other aspects of characterization coming through than simply the pair's sexual drive. The most successful BDSM relationships I know come as a result of a lot of communication and openness in other ways, so stories that just jump right to "and then he tied her up"

It was good but it didn't catch my attention, this is the first BDSM story that was weak. Its about a 'vanilla' Lydia that could never find pleasure before a man finished and her friends told her about bondage and she when online to find a 'buddy' in these sex arts. Here come Jack a master in introducing newbies into his world of dark sex. Lydia has found whats she has been looking for in Jack but now she is having feelings outside of the whips and chains for her Dom Jack.

Another short read that seems to speed through then stop almost as suddenly as it began. Worth a read but will advise you already have to others in the series. Not really worth it as a stand alone unless you only have 5 minutes spare or to kill.

There was to many errors

This is different than the others, Lydia wants to be dominated and Jack is doing everything that she wants. I wish that I could give it more stars, but there are too many errors.

That was one steamy read. This series is off to a really good start. I'm going to go ahead and download the second book in the series right now! I hope it's as good as the first one.

Only a short story leading the way into the series.
It was ok, but it didn't grip me enough to want to read the series.

So girl can’t get off with vanilla sex, so she signs up on a web site for BDSM. Meets the guy and gets off to pain. Sorry it was to blah. It was the pain that caused her arousal and I have a hard time with hitting any way shape or form.

A story needs magic to become real, to feel the characters, want to be the characters. Lucia Jordan does some wonderful work but this one wasn’t for me.

I wouldn't go crazy saying this book was amazing. but it wasn't horrible either. just wasn't enough story in it to make me want to read the next one.

Unrealistic, suspension of disbelief can only go so far before you have to give up. It's books like this and 50 shades that could get people hurt. Who would get into a car and leave with someone they don't know, and experiment with BDSM including restraint?

So, she places an ad on the Internet, he answers, they meet the same day and...

19 pages later. A bit unrealistic in today's world.
Hard for me to read. Finished eventually. Ended up together. Lydia and Jack.
