I didn't like this book because I don't believe the relationship between Vanessa and Rob Taylor is consensual. As Vanessa's boss and a friend of her mother's, Vanessa is in no position to refuse Mr. Taylor's wishes. Then, when he catches her dressed as a slut, the implied threat is more that apparent that she must obey him or be ruined. A threat she openly says she fears in several asides.

The story itself is fair but too common for me to recommend. A young girl is discovered by an older man and

This was soooo hot. I really like the premise of dressing up, to be someone else, someone you're not, someone you in the real world don't have the guts to be. Vanessa had double feelings about it, and I think much of that was due to her young age, and maybe she wasn't all that ready to get to know this other part of her and not feel ashamed about it. For some of us who are taught that certain things are wrong for us, is hardest to accept that maybe wrong is good for you.

Rob... Oh YUM. Man I love

I guess I am partial, I just love everything this author writes. It ticks all my boxes and appeals to me in all levels. Thank you Mr Mabeuse!

Ok. So Rob Taylor is a hair dresser and make up artist that is commonly mistaken for gay. I can live with that. He says things like " little Miss Mechanical Engineer" ok. But the entire time, he speaks in exclamations. It's just more that I can take. I can't help but picture Isaac Mizrahi and this story needs an Alpha Male in the Dom role. It's a weird dynamic. I love m/m, but this felt like a guy that didn't know he was gay. It's the first erotica I've read written by a male too. Which I find i ...more

I liked it. It wasn't super deep in plot but it was short and it was porn, you can't go in expecting another Old Man and the Sea. other than that, it suited the purpose. I liked the relationship between the two of them. Vanessa's lack of confidence and Rob's controlling threatening attitude are in line with common bdsm fantasies and the age dynamic is actually fairly common in bdsm as well. It isn't a bad book if you don't treat as anything more than it is.

hot but the plot is pretty much like this>

1. Girl is seen dressing up into some sexy clothes and is seen by a guy old enough to be her father

2. they had sex

3. girl feels guilty

4. they have sex

5. more sex

6. more hot scense eventually leading to sex

7. the guy miraculously fell in love with the girl after treating her like a sex toy

yay!! what a deep moving plot!!!!!
This was a guilty pleasure book. It was better than I thought it was going to be. He is a very detail writer and I have to say I am interested in seeing some of his other selections though I don't think I'm all that big a fan of the whole woman submitting for a man for anything. This is the 21st century we live in people. Why can't the man submit to the woman for once?
I just could not get over the fact that he is old, as old as her mother or even slightly order. Reading about him seducing her felt wrong, no mater that she fantasized about it.

The guy is much older than the girl. And their first sex scene kinda creeped me out. This may be out of my league.
