Lady Raven RAVE!


Libby Beckett lives a vanilla life that is routine, until she signs up for Maid for It. Using her two weeks vacation from her job, Libby takes the opportunity to be on an island with the very rich, Gavin Huntley, to experience BDSM as a sub to Gavin with a contract in place.


If you’ve read the author’s first book Maid for It, then what this book entails shouldn’t be shocking with what the concept of the story is. Maid for Pleasure was a tiny bit different for me than the fir

This story started off better than the first installment then quickly slid into Nopesville. The heroine is basically kidnapped and threatened with death if she tries to leave the hero. There's no emotional development, just a lot of telling so for the reader this comes off as unexplained Stockholm syndrome instead of submission.

There are no scenes of brainwashing, she just agrees to insane requests because it makes her so hot. Again this would be fine if you understood why she was so effected b

I loved the first book in the series, but I absolutely hated this one. A couple of reasons are individual: I don't enjoy f/f and I don't often like first-person narrative, unless it's done spectacularly well.

But the main reason is that the dubious consent is so wrong here. I *love* dubious consent, nonconsent, rape fantasies, all of it. But here, in the context of a long term relationship, it's just so jarring, that it's the furthest thing from sexy. Gavin doesn't come off as alpha or Dom, he c
I may be getting blasé about so called dark erotica and capture fantasies, but this one wasn't really dark and wasn't particularly erotic in my opinion. Frankly, the story was rather silly and (for me) lacked emotional connection. I didn't feel any sense of anxiety on the part of the female lead, nor any real danger from her captor/master.

The writing was okay grammatically, but the story did not have any punch. I enjoyed Maid for It much more, but this one - not so much.

Wow, I am really becoming a fan of dark erotica! It is books like this one that just draw me in. It’s not just about sex, although sex – naughty sex – is a major player. But authors like Lucy Rodgers really know how to make the story real. Maid for Pleasure has absolutely made it to my favorites list!

It starts off with Libby on a plane to a private island owned by Gavin Huntley. They’ve been matched together by an online service called Maid for It. She is in her maid’s uniform, as requested. She

This review was originally posted on my blog, Darkest Sins.

"Maid For Pleasure" is a dark erotica book where the DARK is very strong and I couldn't have been more fascinated by it. No, I'm not shocked because when I accept this kind of books to review, I'm always well aware of what I'm going to find myself in and, blushing or not (I dare anyone telling me they don't), when you find an author like Lucy Rodgers, who writes delightfully, I can't help getting lost in pleasure during all the reading.

Recommended to: Fans of Master/ slave, BDSM reads. Newbies to reading about the M/s dynamics may not get it. As a Dark Erotica, I’d say it isn’t as dark as say Skye Warren and Kitty Thomas, but the “This is so wrong – so right” reaction is there whilst reading.

Maid For Pleasure by Lucy Rodgers

Maid for Pleasure was an enjoyable read, it was fast paced, well written and I ended up reading this book very quickly, I couldn't put it down until I knew what was going to happen to Libby. Lucy's writing is excellent, descriptions were well written and when she described the Island and the house you could picture the beautiful place in your head. I really enjoyed Lucy Rodgers writing style and will read many more of her books. Maid For Pleasure is a well writte

Libby Beckett is bored with her sex life. She has just broken up with her boyfriend who couldn’t find her G spot even if he had a GPS locator. She has decided to join Maid For It an online dating site for submissive women. She’s been curious about the BDSM lifestyle for some time and has agreed to go to a private island for two weeks to live out her most decadent fantasy as a sex slave.

Gavin Huntley is very clear as to what he expects f

Overall Thoughts:
Reading this book was such a quick and steamy adventure!

Maid for Pleasure is about a woman named Liberty Beckett who seems to have it all. She has the well-paying job as an insurance adjuster, a beautiful beach side abode, a hot BMW, and a seemingly perfect boyfriend. But all of those physical indulgences mean absolutely nothing because she's unhappy, and she doesn't know why. Then one day, she meets a man named Gavin Huntley through an online dating agency, and her entire world

This is, like the first in the "Maid" series, rather a decent little read. I did find a few things (or rather, one thing in particular) to be confusing and out of place. This was not dark, with the exception of the gadgetry embedded in the collar- and why? There was no need for it. Libby was there of her own free will (for the most part) and had no intention of leaving- so why the collar? It was jarring, and I didn't think it fit with the rest of the story or with the personality of Gavin. He wa ...more

This book was an interesting read. It was the definitely the most extreme BDSM I have ever read. While I had a few minor problems with this book, overall I quite enjoyed it.

Gavin is a sociopath. I mean, there is something seriously wrong with him. The lengths he is willing to go to keep Libby is creepy. I don't know how some people can find him sexy when in my opinion, he is the type of person who should be locked up.

There was something about

I read this while I was travelling on a train and I was so bummed that when I finished it there was no more to read!
The story was amazing, intriguing and sexy. I loved that Gavin owns an island and all the people who live there work for him, and I wish I had been there too!
Gaving is quite charming, and although he had the same impact on me that he had on Libby, I loved that he was arousing her to the edge, to make her go crazy for him. Their connection is there and it's visible, even though you

After reading book one and finding it fascinating I purchased the second in the series.

Focus is on the master/slave relationship again which at some points I was flabbergasted at what Gavin wanted from Libby but I couldn't put the book down!

Quick very erotic read which allows you to see this dynamic which was shocking, arousing at at some points I was shouting "You can't do that, run Libby run!!"

If dark erotica is your thing you will enjoy.
