Mostly about Nora s self discovery within the context of the BDSM world Nora is a heroine much like many women today who struggle with the demands of a successful career and being able to ive up control and trust to someone else in their personal life Sylvester was a very interesting hero He embraces the lifestyle and has created the BB as a safe and consensual environment for people like himself to enjoy themselves while also using it as a way to distance himself from his own desires One past experience that went amiss has left him shaken and wary of letting Aguecheeks Beef, Belchs Hiccup, and Other Gastronomic Interjections go to his baser instincts which prevents him from engaging the way he would like with a submissive partner like NoraEven though Nora didn t expect to spend the weekend in a BDSM resort she embraces the experience and explores bondage electric shock stimulation and her most secret desireto enact a rape fantasy As previously mentioned this story is much extreme and intense at least for me and while some of the situations the characters find themselves in made me uncomfortable I did feel that this was the stronger of the two stories Sylvester s need to dominate Nora yet his lack of trust in himself because of his past makes this story much compelling I wish however that Nora s exploration of the BDSM lifestyle would have happened only with Sylvester instead of with multiple partners I would have liked to see him struggle with his self imposed restrictions while tutoring and mentoring Nora in her discovery rather than avoiding her and the temptations she presents to him And since trust is a such a large part of a Ds relationship I think it could have provided of an opportunity to establish a stronger connection for just the two of them instead of him fostering her education to the additional partners that Nora had I also believe that this particular novella would have worked much better as a full length novel There was so much potential here between Nora and Sylvester with their personal demons that I was disappointed and felt that their love story was short changed due to the length Like Baring it Al This book lived up to its title it was sweet AND dirty The first story introduced us to Michelle originally from Alabama she is trying to re invent herself in LA She meets Ro in a fetish shop where she is buying dog collars under orders from her boss at the dog day care where she works Ro invites her to his new club The Dungeon and Michelleoes hoping to learn how to be dominant I enjoyed Black Metropolis, Vol. 2 getting to know these characters we learn about their pasts and I feel like I could really connect with them It was endearing to watch Michelle struggle with trying to be dominant when really she just needed to accept her submissive side and embrace it I loved the scenes with her and Ro the tension was delicious While labeled and erotic romance and involving BDSM the language used was much milder than other erotic romances I ve read recently so that s where the sweet comes in The second story features Nora and Ryan an engaged power couple heading to a B B for a romanticetaway but it stands for Bondage Breakfast I did not like Ryan immediately and found myself hoping Nora ditched him soon Nora was awesome strong independent yet finding she may enjoy some of the darker sides of BDSM Sylvester YUM The scenes between him and Nora are absolutely delicious with tension I love that he holds himself away from her for so long The build up to the finale was awesome This story had stronger and darker subjects than the first one but again the language was mild This didn t bother me but I did actually check the spine to see if it was labeled erotic romance it is There was new BDSM in this story that I was unaware of the use of electricity interesting Also there is discussion and the acting out of pretend rape so if that bothers you you may want to skip this There is always the option of a safe word she isn t really being raped but her fantasy was to be taken against her will and it is acted out Sorry for the spoiler but it may be a sensitive topic for some Overall I enjoyed both stories I connected to the characters I found myself rooting for them or booing them I loved the scenes of sexual tension I also loved the BDSM Both heroines are introduced into the world of BDSM and it was nice to watch their discoveries Nora took to it like she was meant for the lifestyle Michelle enjoyed it at first because she thought sh.
