When Mephisto’s friend Clayton is called out of town on business, he agrees to look after his slave for the week. But Molly isn’t your average slave. She and Clayton share a serious, full time dynamic. Mephisto feels a weight of responsibility he isn’t used to, and worse, an intense attraction to Molly, the partner of his friend.

I absolutely loved this and devoured it in one sitting early in the morning on the sofa while my family slumbered upstairs.

It's a retelling of the novella Club Mephisto which I thought was a good story when I read it and a great story a few days after I read it - it's one of those stories that just stays with you and steals back into your thoughts when you're least expecting it.

Molly is a 24/7 slave to her super rich husband Clayton. She was a bit of a wild child on the club scene until Mephisto

★★★ 3 STAR!

*Combine rating with Molly's Lips is ★★★ 3 SOLID STARS!*

This is the novella from Club Memphisto and told from Memphisto POV. After some confusing story and plot hole in Club Memphisto, I couldn't understand many things with big caps WHY and HOW.

Why 3 stars? I have my reasons.

1. Even this is retold the whole story from previous book, there are some fresh info from Mephisto's side. Mephisto met Clayton about his 'business trip' and Molly. I'm starting sense something isn't right from th

Club Mephisto was both uncomfortable and fascinating to read, it took me to places I wasn't sure I wanted to go to but I found it impossible to put down once I'd started reading. The story was told completely from Molly's point of view though and I couldn't wait to get inside Mephisto's head to try and understand why he did some of the things he did. Whatever you do don't read Molly's Lips until after you've read Club Mephisto though - this is a retelling of the original book but from a differen ...more

First I want to say if you've read Club Mephisto you MUST read this book. This really feels like a completely different book about two different people. The Mephisto in this book is the one we'd only glimpsed from the other. I commented in my review of the first book that I thought Mephisto was who he was - non apologetic, clear, without any ambiguity. So to read the events of that week Molly spent with him from his point of view is just an amazing thing - a unique viewpoint or lens through wh ...more

It is with trepidation, I started this book. Let it be known, I'm a fan of Mephisto. I've read reviews from other friends who indicated this book made them hate or dislike Mephisto. To my relief, my opinion of him didn't change, except to hurt a little bit more for him. He obviously loves Molly and he can't act upon it. Since I read this series out of order, I know what is to come in Burn for You. Knowing what I do now about Mephisto and what he wants from Molly, I'm actually a bit more in love ...more

I couldn’t resist.

I had to review this book the moment I was done with it, even if I am dying to get into the next book. Finally, after all this time, we get into the mind of Mephisto. It all falls together like scattered pieces of a puzzle that have been missing. The final piece was the method beyond Mephisto’s madness. The thing we all secretly knew was true, and finally it was confirmed in the final pages of this novella that left us all crying and smiling at the same time. Annabel warns at t

So if you read my review of Club Mephisto, you probably saw my theory at the end. Well, it turns out I was wrong.

I actually gave Clayton and Mephisto way more credit than they deserved. For Clayton, this was just an attempt to see if Mephisto and Molly are compatible. Worrying about what he had done to Molly was maybe kind of an afterthought.

I was really disappointed in Mephisto, though. For someone who was supposed to be the Top Dominant in Seattle, he seemed to have the emotionally stability o

I was desperate for a book to act as surrogate while I wait for The Reluctant Dom to rerelease. This book was excellent for that. I loved coming to understand the Dom as he put Molly through her paces. He is a selfish bastard, but he also loves her. The ending made me think the next story will resemble The Reluctant Dom, which is fine by me. I did not read the book before this (which it is based on) and do not feel I missed anything for it. Thank you Annabel for an excellent second version of th ...more

I read this in one sitting. It was great to read things from the Dom's perspective. This was quite an emotionally intense read, especially as I know what's coming in book 2.

If you enjoyed Club Mephisto I'd recommend this.

I really liked this book. Found too many similarities to 'The Reluctant Dom'. Probably will read another book just to see how Molly is doing with a new master.

This was a three and maybe a half star read for me. I wish I had followed the advice of some of the others who reviewed this book and read Club Mephisto first. I think I might have had a better grasp of this story if I had. The complete lack of Molly's viewpoint left her as an even greater enigma at the end of the book than she was at the start as far as I was concerned. I read the book because it was free and because I have a fascination for TPE which I can't let go of, and probably don't want ...more
I will sleep a night over this, but so far my take is 1.5*

I amended down to 1*. The reason being that just a few days ago I rated Remastering Jerna 2* and have to give it to Ann Somerville that despite slightly similar topics and failings she wrote the better plot. One thing is for sure though, I did not like this book.

Everyone knows I dislike wank-off fantasies for BDSMers which don't get subverted at some point. It's bad for BDSM, it's bad for newbies, it's bad for whoever ends up holding the

(July) I did not read Club Mephisto - but when I came across this book as a Nook freebie, I figured why not give it a try. I'm glad I did. I don't think I'll ever understand the mind of a true slave or someone who can possibly hurt someone he/she loves that terribly, not be moved by their tears, etc. - but to each his own (if you can't follow that dictate, you have no business reading BDSM, in my opinion). I wish Mephisto didn't have dreads - sorry, but to me they make someone sound dirty (and n ...more

I enjoyed reading this story from Mephisto's point of view. There were times in the first book "Club Mephisto" I was wondering what Mephisto was thinking at times, during the scenes, and also what he was thinking when Molly was his slave for the week. You can feel the attraction they have for eachother. The way Annabel wrote this book, was amazingly written, she thought of everything, each and every scene told us as readers what Mephistso wanted and needed as a Master.

I must say that I did read Club Mephisto first. And, I'm so glad I did so. Not that this books isn't good on it's own - I just felt it was a richer story after first hearing/reading about it from Molly's perspective first. There were a few scenes in Club Mephisto that I struggled with that became crystal clear in this book. Club Mephisto was the first book that I had read by Annabel Joseph. She is definitely an author that I would read again!

Please be aware that both Molly's Lips and Club Mephi

At times this book was hard for me to read, the level of submission took me a bit out of my psychological comfort zone even though it was just through the process of reading a fictional story. The fact that the writing was able to do that without making me want to put the book down is pretty amazing to me. I found myself wishing it were longer, and had more detail about the emotional dynamics (even though there was plenty of detail there). It sparked a lot of curiosity, I immediately went and bo ...more

Surprisingly good.
This may be the first M/F BDSM I've actually liked. Since I can't stand whiny, doormat women, female subs tend to be irritating. And Fem-doms are just,... Yuk, please No!

I guess reading this story from the male Dom's POV bypassed the above two problems. Probably helps that the Dom freely admits he doesn't really understand Molly's motivations anyway. I can empathise, because I don't either.

I'm not going to bother with the prequel, but the sequel has g

The order I read this series in was Club Mephisto, then Burn For You, then Molly's Lips. I must say that by the end, I am head over heels in love with Mephisto. He gave Jeremy from Comfort Object a run for his money on favorite Annabel Joseph Dom. Don't think he really won (because I am insane about Jeremy) but Mephisto is pretty darn great.

Rounds out the first installment

The kink in the first book in this series left me squeamish, but I was intrigued to see the other point of view, and the quality of the writing encouraged me to continue. This story covers the same events as the first book, only told from another point of view. I was afraid that it might drag to read the same events again, but some of them were summarized and there's enough new material to keep it interesting. At the end of book one, I wouldn't have laid odds that

What happens when a beloved slave is given into another master's care for a week? For Molly, it is a cruel time of silence, edging, orgasm denial and undeserved punishment, but also a deepening of her definition of who she is as a slave and who she was willing to serve.

For Mephisto, Molly challenged everything he thought he wanted. He never imagined he'd envy another master's relationship with his slave girl. -- until Mephisto spent a week with Mol

Ok, this redeemed the first book a little but not enough for me to want to continue with the second in the series. I just don't feel like Mephisto cares about her to let her be fucked by so many guys and also he is off fucking around himself. I know it's a part of that culture, but he didn't even seem that bothered by it. It would've made a difference if he hated it the whole time. Anyway, not continuing.

I got this book in exchange for a voluntary review.This book is the story of the week that Molly spends with Mephisto as his slave. This is told from Mephisto's point of view. This book shows how Mephisto struggled with Molly being a 24/7 slave as he tried to answer Clayton's question of whether Molly was happy.

Well, it is different and definitely not romance as the author warned. I haven't read the other books in the series, so I'm not sure if I've got it right, but just be reading this one, the author has written a good story in BSDM.

Was good to see the other side of the Dom. It was a great story to begin but this only made it better. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
