Yes, Justin
After fifteen years and two kids, the romance has fled from Trish’s marriage. When a friend introduces her to BDSM, she decides it’s what she wants—to have her body and soul mastered by a man who is completely focused on her. And that’s not her husband, whose life revolves around his career.

Justin isn’t shocked when he finds out his wife is planning to cheat

This is a collection of three erotic stories with a D/S theme. The stories are not related, each featuring different characters and situations. The stories are all well written and easy to read, with nice well developed plots and plenty of steam. I have read several full novels by this author and really enjoyed them, so I had high expectations. I was quite pleased to see the same care and feeding given to these shorter works. Overall, three very entertaining reads.

Highly recommended

Justin knew what he had to do fulfill her fantasy. Wh

I absolutely adored this collection of stories - it is the perfect intro to those interested in reading about a more kinky lifestyle. This is a perfect smorgasbord of different BDSM situations. All are beautifully and sensitively written, I felt drawn into all of them and totally devoured them.

This is a collection of three novellas. They all focus on D/s, but in different situations.

Yes, Justin 5*
Trish and Justin have fallen into the pit many parents do; they are mostly mommy and daddy, and not lovers. Justin has been working nights and weekends to make partner in his law firm and Trish is fed up. Rather than talk to him, she talks with a friend in the scene and has her set up a weekend with a dom. Instead, she goes to Justin and lets him know that his wife's dream dom is him. So, he

I am a fan of the author and was excited to read three novellas in one book. I liked two out of three, but would recommend the book for variety. Yes, Justin deals with a married couple that have become complacent in their relationship. Trish needs to add spice, but approaches a friend to set her up in a kidnap fantasy with a stranger for one night. Instead Justin is made aware of her wishes and realizes he is part of the problem and works to save his marriage. Good story with the moral that comm ...more

Three novellas contained in this book. First one is a married couple rekindling love with some serious bdsm. Second one feels like two college students thrown together in a mutual like with some seriously hot scenes. Third one is about being hot for the boss. All seriously hot and sexy times.

What did I like? Some quick scenes and three separate stories contained in an anthology type novel. The first one was my favorite... bored wife of a husband who works too much plans on cheating on him. He f

Three short, erotic stories that certainly got me in the mood to say “yes.”

I could easily see how these would fit into the Oasis series. Sometimes it takes a friend to help you move a relationship along, to open the right door, to see that the person you thought was “out of your league,” belongs “by your side” for the rest of your life.

Yes, I’m punny this way a lot of the time. I like to play with words. I may not be funny, but I like puns. My point is that these three couples are meant for eac

A super hot, super steamy, super erotic book! All three stories are guaranteed to melt your undies off! The first one, Yes, Justin can be a bit tough to read if you don’t condone cheating. Though the cheating didn’t happen, there was intent. However, Justin and Trish’’s love story has a happy ending and makes you realize how important it is to work things out. The second novella Out of My League was a cute story because Mia and Kaelen who had a matchmaker who helped them achieve their dreams. Th ...more

“Discovering Desires: Three Kinky Novellas” contains three stories that all contained different storylines. Three very different couples and three very different experiences as they moved forward together. Michele Zurlo gives us three stories of dominance and submission. The stories were all steamy and included BDSM play.

I really enjoyed this book. It contained three stories that all contained different storylines so I never felt like I was reading the same story but with different characters. One included a married couple going through issues. One was about a popular college guy and a geeky goodie-goodie girl who both had a crush on each other. The third included an assistant who was in love with her boss. The stories were all steamy and included BDSM play. If you like reading about those themes I would definit ...more

Michelle Zurlo delivers 3 excellent novellas about couples discovering their sexuality and their kinky side. As always, this book is beautifully written with somewhat flawed but wonderful characters and all scenes described faultlessly. I am a big fan of Michelle Zurlo and I know that every time I read one of her books I will not be disappointed and this definitely was no exception. Highly recommend this book to all who like to read about BDSM and the complexities of these relationships.

Michele Zurlo is one of my favorite writers. She writes realistic bdsm love stories full of interesting scenes both in and out of the bedroom. Great characters, plots, and different situations people her books. This one is three shorter stories than feature three different couples in very different situations, but all finding their way towards both romantic and kink relationships. All three were a joy to read. I recommend this book if you like your romance kinky.

All three of three of these stories were incredible.
Yes Justin was my favorite. Married couple Trish & Justin have been married for a long time. Kids, jobs, life has sometimes come before having just them time. Trish wants her alone time with her husband she comes up with a plan to bring the spice back into their marriage. Really loved the way the author puts so much details in the story and brings the characters to life. Really loved this one!

I've read a lot of books written by Michele Zurlo; she has done an excellent job at writing a good set of short stories; she is one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story lines caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

In each of these stories, a dominant man and a submissive woman want the same thing but don't know it, at least at the beginning. You have to suspend your disbelief quite a bit to find some of the plot points plausible, but the scenes are hot and the characters are likable. Michele Zurlo has become one of my favorite writers.

Kinky x3

Are you looking for one story for a quick read? Are you looking to do some binge reading? This book is perfect for either as it contains not one but three kinky stories. Read them one day at a time or binge all in one sitting(I did this option!). Hot and kinky is the only way to escape reality!!!

All the stories are similar yet different enough to keep you interested. All of the couples know eachother for each story making the scenes more enjoyable. Each is a learning growth experience for the couples. They discover just what the other needs as well as themselves.

Each story had their own theme however, each ended with lots of heat and love. They may appear to be short stories by the number of chapters but they give you full story context.
