Natalie Buchanan has been working non-stop for six weeks. Determined to enjoy a rare weekend off, she winds up at the mysterious Le Club d'Esclavage.

Natalie & Max,

A quick Hot, Dirty, Sexy bedtime read!

There's are some Smokin hot sex scenes, a decent storyline that I didn't expect, my only complaint is that the characters relationship lacked some of the buildup needed to make it believable,
However the sex made up for it!
Story continues in book 2...

At the Dungeon Masters Hand- This was just a hot read because it was her first experience with that type of lifestyle and honestly to see it firsthand can turn you on without you ever wanting it to. You want to look away but at the same time you can't. She has no idea that someone is watching her or that it turns out to be someone she works with. The sex is off the charts, the BDSM part is not too extreme. It was great!

This was an enjoyable story about a girl denying her submissive desires and the Dom who wants so badly to possess her. The sex was so fantastic that I had to give it 5 stars; I'm not removing it from my Nook like I do most other books that I finish, because it's perfect spank bank material. :D

After working too hard for too long, Natalie’s two best friends promise her a night on the town. Much to Natalie’s surprise, they end up at Le Club d'Esclavage, the local BDSM club everyone is talking about. Shortly after arriving, both of Natalie’s friends abandon her for their own fun, and before she has a chance to escape, Natalie’s coworker, Max, shows up. Natalie has longed for Max for a while, but never made a move because he always seemed uninterested. However, before she has the chance t ...more

I have to say, that although I really enjoyed the base storyline of this book, I had a series of issues with the BDSM theme that made me sort of lift a brow and almost cringe. I really wanted to like it. I wanted to be able to slap five stars on this book and say YES! This was fantastic. I was left having to be totally honest.

First off, I loved the premise. The guy that always wanted the girl, guy owns BDSM club, guy sees girl come into in BDSM club. So what is any BDSM club owner, that doesn’t

This struck me as kind of weird. Natalie's two best friends decide she needs a night out on the town so they take her to Le Club d'Esclavage (Slavery Club) which is the hottest club in town & also a BDSM club owned by an anonymous person. They don't tell her where they're taking her & she balks once they arrive. About two seconds after they get into the club both her friends hook up with other guys & leave her? Nice friends. Here's the weird part, the club has a rule: “The owner woul ...more

The authors writing is ok... the story premise & plot are lacking.. but the way that Natalie was exposed to the BDSM lifestyle/environment in this club was NOT OK.
I find this was poor portrayal of the lifestyle
1) just a statement at the door that if you enter you agree to play...yeah right
2) she had numerous drinks at the bar, and should not have been allow to play - at one point Natalie even asks if something had been put in her drinks
3) she was taken without her consent
4) no explanation of

Slightly better than book 1 of this trilogy. Good and chock full of smut...a little bit of plot. It does help that part of the plot comes from book 1. This trilogy is basically the story of three best friends and their experience at the scandalous bondage club. Some of the story is overlapping--in fact, at the beginning I thought I was reading book 1 and had to scroll back to the front to make sure it was book 2.

Yet another shitty attempt at BDSM. I wont even go into details except to say it's clear this is yet another author who didn't even bother to research what she was writing the tiniest bit. I've even ran out of steam to rant about this because its so sadly common these days. The creepy factor of playing BDSM games with a total stranger is high for me and I decided to abandon it because of that. And yes I did just copy and paste some of my last review into this one because it had the exact same fl ...more
New to me author. Saw this was listed for 99 cents and thought "why not?" but I had issues with the heroine and her wishy-washy-ness and things the hero did were just a huge NO THANK YOU. I did not feel any sort of connection between the characters at all. I have the other 2 books in this series on the Kindle but after this one, I'm not sure I want to read them any time soon.

This book was way too short I did realize it was this short. I gave it 3 stars because the one long sex scene was hot as hell. I wanted to know did they remain a couple. I guess I have to read the next book and hopefully find out.
A short read, it was ok, it started off better than it ended. I did like the rule of the club, when you first walking in youre "accepting" what the club is offering. Imagine as soon as you walk into a club as a slave/sub you dont have to make a choice anymore... enjoy :)

I was captivated immediately and loved the way the story evolved and grew into a fantastically written book... looking forward to book 2....
Review to come...

P.S. Don't insert stuff into people while they're unconscious. That's just TOO creep.

So when I started reading this book, for some reason I didn’t realize it was part of a trilogy. And on top of that, I didn’t realize I had all three books. You can not even imagine the joy I had once I discovered both of those points!

I think Jennifer Cole took a really fantastic approach to this series. There are three books, each featuring a different person; Natalie, Megan and Dani. And all three books are tied into together!! Seriously, I was just going nuts with joy when I discovered this. A

Book One in a trilogy whose stories overlap--even to the point where a small portion of the text of each book is a word for word repetition. It brings the experiences of three friends at a local BDSM club together, each of the tree novellas highlighting one of the friends. I think they were a bit short on plot with lots of erotica. Yet they were enjoyable, short reads. This first novella introduces the reader to the three friends with the two succeeding novellas expanding the stories of one of t ...more

This book was deirously creepy. Kinda disturbing. In a word : Eww.
She doesn't know his identity, and yet she lets him do dirty dirty things to her.
The way he talks and thinks actually reminds me os the villains in so many BDSM themed books that I've read.
I think it's so unrealistic that she responds to a total stranger the way she does. At times it felt almost like he was raping her. His actions are a contradiction to every rule of BDSM.

I also didn't like the ending, the way they switched r

I really hate giving 2 stars to anyone, but there are a few things that warrant it. The story was okay, and the one sex scene was good, but at 38% in my Kindle, the book ended. 38%! That means 62% of the book was not the book. At $0.99, that is WAY too much to pay for a few scenes. The author should really consider writing a much longer story. I would have been a much happier reader if the book wasn't mostly excerpts from other stories. I see that a lot of readers agree with me, too. I don't thi ...more

This story was a quick read and quite enjoyable but it seemed that there was something missing from it. It was like there never seemed to be a real connection between the characters. Reviewed by Christine “Cupcakes”

Not a bad little book but...the ending really disappointed me. I got hung up on the fac that that rules of the club weren't realistic. The details distracted me.

If you are unfamiliar with BDSM this may squick you a bit. If you're familiar you may get distracted by the level of "Doing It Wrong"ness. It's a light book; there's no drama, no true conflict and the characters are simplified.

This book could have been so much longer. I saw the makings of a great plot with the main character trying to discover who the dungeon master was and then later how there relationship evolves and if anyone ever discovers he is the owner. the author could have done so much more.

This was a fun, hot read. I give it 3 1/2 stars, as it was fairly short and doesn't particularly stand out in a positive or negative way. Enjoyable characters and well written.

This book is sooo steamy and hot! The first of the 3 girls in the series. I liked that the main lead is sort of shy in "real" life unlike the other erotic novels that I've read. lol.
