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 taught the act of love. There are a few public scenes and mildly kinky ones as she is introduced to sexy lingerie, kinky clothing and bondage. Eventually she's had enough, cannot come to terms with her feelings, and leaves him. While she enjoys the dirty sex her feelings of shame are overwhelming. Her freedom is short lived as she quickly falls into the hands of an evil man who is even more dangerous and exploitive. Mr. Taylor rescues her and they live happily ever after.

I was not impressed and think this book is easily skippable.
