Amy has gotten herself into a sticky situation being sold as a sex slave to an international bidder. During her training with Alistair, a beastly man and Robert’s brother, Amy has proven to be defiant and not pliable as a submissive. Since her obstinance poses a problem for her sellers, reinforcement has been beckoned by the ultimate ringleader.

“This is sex slavery. Pure and simple. I’ve been kidnapped. I’ve been sold. I will be used for sex. That’s not submission.”

Robert is a successful ent

Jade West and Jason Luke collaborate in a spendidly erotic and suspenseful D/S tale. I won’t say much about the plot because the blurb is awesome and enough detailed. Here are my thoughts about Robert and Amy’s D/S relationship:

** Robert was so thoughtful, caring, considerate and strong

The announce of a book between Jason Luke and Jade Est was a promise to enter a world of real pleasure. Who's better than the king of masterhip and the princess of submission joigning forces to bring us a sensual, arousing story?

After finishing this first part, i have to admit I'm a little confused. If I have to simply rate the steam level, I'll give it easily 4 but here I am giving 2 because it was all pretty confusing.

Eeeks. I wanted to get my hands on this book so bad and I wasn't disappointed!
Amy is a young woman, suffering in the hands of slave traders. She is strong and she has no intention of submitting to her masters. She wishes to be free. She wants her life back.
Everything changes when they hand her over to Robert. He is to train her and bend her to his will so she can be sold off.

The first installment of Plaything introduces quite a bit of a screwed up story. Robert is returning home at the request of his father, a man he’s kept his distance from – both in his profession and in his heart. But with one threat, Robert is left having to make a choice – leave and lose what he’s been building or stay and possibly lose himself.

Amy didn’t ask to be taken. And she isn’t willing to submit. But when she realizes that her future is not within her control, that there is no way she’s

I normally love Jade West's books. This is s collaboration with Jason Luke. I still haven't read any of his own books, but they are recommended. So, I may give a try soon. Thus, I was looking forward to starting this series.
That being said, I was a bit disappointed of this first book. It is a fairly short book and a short series. I can understand that the two main characters cannot be developed fully, but after a while I realised that I don't really like them. Neither of them.

Well this promises to be an incredibly hot and addictive series from Jade West and Jason Luke.

Plaything Vol 1 is a novella, and the first part to this new collaboration between two of the hottest writers in the erotica/BDSM/dark romance genres.
I was so excited when I heard about Plaything, it had the potential to be an incredible story, and written by 2 amazing authors just made it even more tempting.

A great short and sweaty start, exhibiting the collaboration of these two erotic authors very nicely.

Amy finds herself kidnapped, and being subsequently tortured into submission, following an evening with a seemingly rich, dominant, who had inclinations along the BDSM lines that Amy also had a fondness for.

Battered into submission and then sold, she found herself returned to her captors for being a disobedient submissive.

Jade and Jason. Together?! Yes, please.

The first volume of the cowritten dark, BDSM, captive serial left one heck of a punch. With Jason's intellectual twist to BDSM and Jade's pushing the limits sex scenes, these two created a storyline filled with suspense and intrigue with massive amounts sexual tension. While the theme had me cringing at times because of the dark depravity Amy was suffering, the addition of Robert left me a panting, hopeful mess.

I have LOVED Jade West's books in the past. I know I've said it before but I'll say it again - her Dirty Bad series is top shelf erotica. So when I saw she had a new collab out with Jason Luke, who I had not read, I jumped on it!

I was grossly disappointed by Plaything. Where was the fabulous chemistry? The sense of consent and respect between the characters? The charming humor and character development?

This is a story about a sex slave, and mixing slavery and erotica makes me very very nervous.

Plaything Volume 1 by Jason Luke and Jade West

3 Stars ★★★ ~ Lynsey

From the masters of BDSM Jason Luke and Jade West comes a new series of novella's. Plaything is the first part of I'm not sure how many.

To be honest I felt a little underwhelmed with this book, I struggled to gel with any of the characters, personally I think it's because Part 1 is so short it didn't allow for much of a storyline to develop, no background or history apart from the kn

This was a great start to what I think will be a great little series.

I enjoy both Jason and Jade's books so I was excited to see what they would do together.

It was a fairly short quick read and really just felt like the beginning and more set the scene for the rest of the series. It's about Amy who has been kidnapped and sold in the BDSM underworld but however is proving difficult to train therefore has been returned. This is where Robert enters, he's the black sheep of the family and want's n

Let me begin by saying I have not read Interview With A Master by Jason Luke so that may have had some influence on my rating. Im not sure. I was somewhat confused with some of the events and the characters but again that could be just me. I have read a few of Jade West books (Dirty Bad series) so again potentially I may have been more focused on the mindset of her books than what actually was happening here.

I really enjoyed this book. It carries just the right amount of suspense to make me eagerly await the next part.

Amy has been taken - stolen away to be sold to the highest bidder. But Amy isn't easily broken, so returned back because of her behaviour, she's being held for more training so they can realise their asset. As far as Amy is concerned though, she will never bow, she will never give to their ugly ways.

Robert thinks he has escaped the family business, but one phone call drags him back in.

Wow ! Jade and Jason make an awesome team bringing an original and very hot book to life ! I'm a huge Jade West fan so I'm always going to read anything this woman writes. This pairing with Jason Luke brings something new for Jade fans. It's not a typical Jade book but it's not a Jade book it's something new and different and should be viewed that way.

Amy never wanted to be a submissive, but she was tricked and stolen to be sold as one. Robert never wanted to train her but he's being blackmailed into playing his part in a family legacy he has tried leaving behind. But He's the best alternative if Amy's going to make it out of this with her spirit still intact. She's trying to accept the fact that she truly can't get free so she might as well try to learn to enjoy her submission and hope for a pleasant future with her Saudi owner. Robert has 7 ...more

After a long absence from his family, Robert is summoned back and ordered to “retrain” a girl who has not performed. Wanting nothing to do with the situation, he is blackmailed into the family business once again.

Amy is stuck. She has been taken, sold, and stripped of her every free will. The only issue, the buyer wants her retrained because she is a little too much of a fighter.

The relationship from the start between these two is a reluctant one. Neither really wanting to be where they are or

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. The type of story this is, where there is really just the two main characters for most of the book, a full length book would be more appropriate. This all felt rushed, with hardly any character development. I knew very little about either Robert or Amy by the end of this first instalment.

I found it hard to believe that Amy was ready for sex the day after Robert took her from the main house. From the opening chapter we know that she was batt

Like I'm the one trying new things.

She didn't disappoint here. Joigning forces with Jason Luke was a brilliant move.

Whereas before I loved to learn about submission, here I loved how submission was taught from another perspective.

It was perfectly written, beautiful and artistic.

Plaything is the start of a promising dark BDSM story from two Amazing Authors.

I have read books by both of these authors and have really enjoyed their books which have been 5 star quality.

The problem I had with Plaything is that the length of this book did not allow enough character development and this left me unconnected, that being said I am still going to one click Part two in the hopes that Jason Luke & Jade West will be able to grip me and take me deeper into this story.

Very short start but towards the end I definitely could see this one turning into a good story. It is gritty and dark. Robert's family sells women once they turn them into a submissive. Robert despises his family, leaving the family trade behind years ago until his father threatens to tear down everything he has built on his own. He has one two choices: let his life fall to pieces or train the untrainable submissive better than his brother. Part two comes out in January!
