What a story! What an amazing, intriguing, thorough story. I was pushing myself out of my normal genres and decided to jump in and see what this book could offer me from the "erotica" sense and I was not disappointed.

Leigh is a successful photographer, she seems to have the life with a handsome boyfriend, thriving business, and not lacking for anything. But a part of her feels off, not just in the sense she's finally battling with braces to adjust her lifelong over-formed bite but she doesn't feel fulfilled as she would like. Then one day, she ends up with a client at the club of misfits called the Asylum and ends up meeting Mikey. Mikey or "Just Mikey" fits into the gang of misfits as the bondage expert. IT by day and BDSM expert by night he is intrigued by her and takes her on as a student. What one would think is that would mean that the student and teacher would be involved, but that is far from the case. Mikey takes on the title of "Sir Michael" and takes Leigh on a journey of learning how to respectfully and appropriately bring BDSM into your life.

I knew nothing about this community or lifestyle and reading it from this perspective is so intriguing. Gerry Pelser's character development is something very few authors I've read could hold a light to. Each character and each story line is built out with such detail even though it's a work of fiction you would swear that it happened in front of your eyes. Only reason I ticked my rating down a star is I felt like the middle of the book got a bit repetitive for me but once I got to the last quarter of the book, I FLEW through because the action is just addicting in it.

Thank you Gerry Pelser, Author Collective, and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I was so happy I got the opportunity to read this story.
