It's pretty rare that I rate a book highly because of how much it drives me nutty. I swear I hate as many things about Puppy Love as I love about it. I suspect I don't have as many issues with Petey's submission as most do; though I'd agree with those that think he's being unduely induced through emotional manipulation. And I'm saying that as a switch who has lived and experienced scenes on both sides of the slash (D/s). More the than urophagia (which squicks me out! Eww ) it was Matt and Alex's representation of bisexuals, of Doms, and the constant objectifying and misogynistic references toward women that drove me FREAKING insane. I loved living inside Petey's introspections though, however overly emotional, contradictory, self deprecating and self flagellating they were. Off to buy book 2. I swear I could talk about this book for days! Thought Provoking Read.

I remember going through similar stuff when I first acclimated to the lifestyle. I hate to stomp on Devin's peen with stilettos. Regarding Matt...IDK yet so far he's an empathetic Dom but I suspect that'll change."

I keep telling myself if this indeed is even partially pseudo-auto-biographical I can't believe Jeff is putting part of his journey out there like that. I don't know if I could because my D/s relationships, how I conceptualize them and what they mean to me only make sense to me. I don't know that I could make myself THAT...vulnerable to critique to misunderstandings.."
