Dear Ms. Heart:
I am probably the wrong person to review this book as I generally don’t like short stories unless your name is O. Henry and I am not a fan of erotica. I think this is an erotica novella and not a romance but I am getting more and more confused about the line between the erotica v. erotic romance genres. The entire book is comprised of one sex scene featuring Mike and Trisha Jones. They have been married for 8 years and their marriage is stagnant. Trisha is acting too submissive and Mike isn’t asserting himself like a proper Dom should. I kind of laugh at that sentence because it indicates I actually know how a proper Dom should act which I don’t. It’s simply my interpretation of your story. The story, all 7900 words of it, has no plot, other than the submissive apparently hasn’t been properly punished for the last six months by her master and thus acts out to gain his attention. I wasn’t engaged by either character or the story but I suppose if a reader is in the mood for a S&M sex scene, this would fit the bill. D.
