Since I enjoyed Ms. Wood’s Twice Her Age I thought I’d give another one of her books a try.

I LOVED this book! I loved the hero (Dick) and the heroine (Gabriella), loved their interaction together, and most importantly I thought it was a really beautiful love story. Now, I know it’s not for everyone; it is a BDSM story with vampires. Gabriella is invited to Peckerwood, WA to do research for her book (she is an erotica author) for a month. And what better place than a small town that lives BDSM r

I couldn't get into this. Somehow it all seemed kind of corny, and I hate it when the main characters keep secrets and manipulate one another.

Lea’s Review:

Right from the beginning there is no doubt To Play or Obey is going to be a fun and unusual read. We begin with a young writer of BDSM romance, Gabriella Torraine, receiving an invitation to visit the town of Peckerwood, Washington, to experience a community where people live the Dominant/submissive lifestyle 24/7. The letter of invitation had been sent by the mayor of the town of Peckerwood, Mayor Dick. See, you’re smiling already, aren’t you? Gabby decides to accept the invitation

I have to say. I was a bit skeptical when it came to this book. I wasn’t disappointed. I loved the fluidity in which this story was told. It was hot. It was hilarious, and it felt real. I love it, when a story can make me feel like it’s tale can happen at any given interval. My favorite line has to be, “There are subs out there; we’ve just got to find them, love them, and convince them to stay.”

I don’t know if that was supposed to be an “awww” moment but dang it…I said it anyway. I loved that on

Abby Wood weaves an erotic story about a paranormal town immersed in the BDSM lifestyle that's had me hooked from the moment I read the first sentence!

Gabriella is an erotic romance writer who writes paranormal BDSM, and she's invited to have an all-expenses paid trip to the town of Peckerwood by Mayor Dick under the guise of learning more about the D/s lifestyle in a to

I liked it - I enjoyed the story of the vampires and what they were doing. I liked Mayor Dick too. However it all seemed to happen very quickly - within a couple days she agrees to be his submissive and she didn't really know anything about him much at all. The sex scenes in the beginning were alluded to only - it got hotter as it went but one thing I didn't really like was, by the time we actually read about the sex (other than oral on him) they'd been together a while and there were references ...more
