*I recieved a copy of Locked In Torture in exchange for a honest review.

Would it be weird if I said I've wanted to read a romance novel that involved "femdom"? I hope not because its the truth. There are so many books out there with the man being the dominator and he balks when his heroine hints at taking charge. I wanted to read a story where she is in the dominate position. Author Kayla Stonor was able to weave a convincing BDSM/femdom storyline with a hint of suspense and a HEA.

How does one change an alpha male into a submissive slave? Very carefully with a little help using CBT. CBT - ah, one of my favourite things when it comes to femdom. Ms. Stonor does another bang up job with a strong male submitting to a woman. The women in Ms. Stonor's stories aren't cruel either. Still, this is BDSM fantasy despite the contemporary setting. For those who want to use this as a guide to BDSM, go buy a non-fiction BDSM book. While this book does utilize some real BDSM devices, I w ...more
4.5 bitter sweet painful stars

This story kept me engaged from start to finish. I read the first edition in 2014 [Locked in Torture] and didn't bother posting a review due to the issue "I" had with the plot! Honestly, I can't remember entirely what those were now.

Whether the fact I enjoyed this edition so much more was due to the changes made, or how much my reading preferences have altered over the last two years, I'm unsure. And at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter.

This third book in the Surrender Series leaves the other two books in the series in the dust. Ms. Stonor has proven once again that she knows her stuff when it comes to getting alpha males to surrender themselves to their female counterpart. I'm blown away by this author's courage to write these books and glad to have read them. Here are my thoughts:

Truth be told, I didn't intend to read Under By Vengeance, but I found myself suffering from a serious case of Qui pheromone withdrawal & needed a quick Kayla Stonor fix;-)

Pulling off a believable captive male / vengeful mistress story on Earth is harder than a story set in an alternate reality or in outer space. Writing one about two undercover agents trying to expose a slavery ring is harder still...

This was my first time reading anything from Kayla Stonor and she did not disappoint!

Jenna is an American agent on assignment in London, working with Agent Ryan, who is a member of SI7--British Secret Service. They have a history of work interactions that has shaped their relationship--she thinks that he views her as an inept agent, and he believes she is a danger to herself. Both are attracted to each other, and neither is willing to admit it.

After Jenna "ruins" a mission, she is sent deep un
Jo * Smut-Dickted *
Another great FemDom in the erotica sub genre of capture/slave/torture erotica. I tend to class these outside of BDSM and inside the general erotica. Strong characters drive a strong plot. I don't want to put spoilers in - but this FBI and Special Agent slant was different than the other two books in the series. This has a more discipline feel for a relationship due to the motivations but the scenes are not quite as extreme as those in Under By Treaty. It always sounds weird for me to say I real ...more

Intriguing Plot With Heart-pounding Suspense

Jenna Taylor is an American CIA operative tasked with a mission that would bring her deep undercover. Jenna’s cover as a dominatrix frequenting BDSM clubs across two continents gives her the training, plus it creates a lure for factions that target federal agents who have those vices ripe target for manipulation. With a perfect cover she can establish a motive for getting into Kabas, a criminal organization who uses weak-minded women hell bent on reven

"So there is a pot of gold at the end of this sexual torture?"

I was delightfully gripped by this fast paced spy drama that is an erotic suspense thriller with interesting protagonists and some psychological drama that knowingly violates the safe, sane, consensual tenants of BDSM.

Ryan Crichten works for British Intelligence and doesn't suffer fools gladly he therefore feels no option other than to remove Jenna Taylor an FBI agent from his team effectively ending her career. What he doesn't rea

This is the first book by Kayla Stonor that I have ready and I am already a big fan. This book was a smoking hot read.
Jenna, a CIA Agent, is on an undercover mission in London to takedown an international human trafficking ring and in order for this to work she needs the help of Ryan, an SI7 agent, only he doesn't know it.

Theres a saying, "There's a fine line between love and hate" that Jenna and Ryan are proof of. After their first meeting Ryan is convinced that Jenna hates him and when he ha

I was gifted a copy of 'Under By Vengeance' from Kayla Stonor, in exchange for an honest review.

Having read Kayla Stonor's "Qui Treaty Collection" I was pretty excited to read 'Under by Vengeance' which has absolutely nothing to do with her alien alpha's. 'Under by Vengeance' is book 3 in Kyla's "Surrender Collection" which can be read as a stand-alone, as none of the books interract in any way. I'm not really sure how Kayla does it... OH.... MY..... GOODNESS....... WOW, what a story this is...

I received this as a review copy from the author as a newly reworked and released book, and while I will always accept and read something offered as a review copy by the author, I was unsure at first if I was going to be able to enjoy it. Let me be clear, while I had initial doubts, just because of the subgenre, and the authors own thoughts (revealed in an email, not to me personally... I'm not that cool) that it was "too dark"....... I really enjoyed this book.

Spectacular, edgy spy story with dark, sexy aspects!!

This story comes with accurate warnings; dark and edgy, hot and wicked, punishing and uplifting with BDSM themes.

This is first a spy story. Jenna Tayler must infiltrate the Kabas operation to take down an international trafficking ring. To do so she purposefully ruins an operation and seemingly her career receiving the wrath of British agent Ryan Crichten. These two feel an attraction toward each other, but Ryan does not mix business with ple
I received a an ARC of this book for an honest review from the author.

Trained operative Jenna is asked to infiltrate the Kabas organisation as information has been revealed they deal in sex trafficking, however this means she needs a partner. An unwilling one. without his knowledge Ryan has been selected and will endure torture like never before.

The plot in the book was well thought out, the sex scenes torturous enough for the situation they found themselves in, reactions as you would expect. Th

This was a first for me and a lot more intense than I am used to. This story includes what I consider extreme BDSM with a male submissive and I have to admit there were places I had to walk away from and skip over to be able to finish the story. The things people will do, enjoy doing or need to do to obtain sexual pleasure are vast and in this book for their job had me cringing. The story that surrounds this is strong and well written. The main characters handle their rolls well with in interest ...more

This was the first read in my "why don't men read more erotica or romance?" curiosity project, and I won it as part of a Goodreads competition. I can't say that I "liked" it, but I also didn't "not like" it. Non-consensual F/m naughtiness nearly the whole time, with bumpers of "meh" story elements. Eye-rolling and smiley at moments, I'd read more from Stonor, but I'm not in any rush to do so.

I liked the strong submissive man, it was kind of hot. I didn't think I was going to enjoy a series with the alpha male as a submissive, but I did. The situation in this book is a little twisted , I don't mind twisted context.
It started as a non-concent , but I liked that the guy ultimately gave control willingly to the female.

The writer has given a good synopsis in her preface about the key elements of this story. Ryan is an agent in the British S17. Jenna called to him, yet every interaction with her left him disappointed and unsettled; she scared him, distracted him, commanded his attention and aroused his protective instincts. A Code 9 is issued against Ryan, but when he moves to a new safe house he is kidnapped and taken to an Island. Jenna feels that Ryan has judged her from the offset. He has no idea how hard s ...more
DNF, life's too short. I had my hopes up, but dear me, once again this isn't BDSM, it's tortureporn instead. There's not a shred of SSC in this, and on top of that the author seems to misunderstand a few essential facts about chastity and chastity play. As a result most of this was painful to read.

Also, while I appreciate a female Top having self-doubts, I don't need things to go to the extent of her not being a Top at all. The premise is misleading readers wanting femdom.

Too bad.

I liked the story, but found the BDSM distracting. The interaction between the two protagonists was so riveting that the BDSM became irrelevant.Jenna and Ryan are both strong characters who are inclined to think that they know best. On the island they have to depend on each other, and find that that attraction that they have for each other, since their first meeting at a workshop in the USA, helps to protect each other under perilous circumstances.

Wow! Normally the Domme stories are not to my liking, however, with a couple hundred pages, this author has opened my eyes to something I had not considered before. Jenna is undercover in the UK and her latest assignment has her squirming. A chance to take down an organization, but at what cost? "The idea of whipping Crichten into submission exploded a whirlwind mess of conflicting feelings." Will Jenna be able to stay in character or will she crumble under the pressure? Enjoy!

It was a good story and kept your attention. A little too much hard core torture for me. I don't mind BDSM but am more into the male on the female. It seemed she had no limits and I couldn't get past the hardcore cruelty on his privates. And being locked in a coffin gives me nightmares. Other wise it was well written. And something that if you are into it like this you will like it a lot. It is up to each individual what they like. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this read. Locked In Torture while being a rather graphic erotic novel, managed to give a decent enough backstory to structure the graphic scenes around a common plot, rather than just spontaneous sex. I found the male lead to be somewhat relatable, particularly towards the end of the novel, and I found the strong, female lead to be quite attractive. Overall I thought the book to be well thought out and quite stimulating. I will most certainly read more of Kayla Stonor's work.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Definitely not for the faint of heart. The storyline is intense, but Ryan and Jenna are well rounded characters who make the story more about them than about what they're doing. I enjoyed reading it even though some of the BDSM was a little disturbing. It has romance, suspense and domination.
