The Pact of Seduction has one rule—fulfill your ultimate fantasy. Bella’s problem, she can’t live up to her vow. But her failure spins events that lead her into unknown territory. Kole, a Dom at the sex club Castle Dolce Vita, wasn’t part of her fantasy, but he’s about to show her he should have been.
Kole is more than willing to introduce Bella to BDSM since he’s held an interest in her for some time. But the feisty woman isn’t easily tamed and her strong personality proves to be difficult. While she might be determined to keep him at a distance, Kole has other ideas. He won’t allow her to shut him out.
A pact between best friends brought them together, emotional barriers tear them apart. Kole skillfully reminds Bella through pleasure and punishment that she is now his submissive, and her place is under his command.
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.
Bella and her girlfriends (four gals total) have a "Pact of Seduction". Basically, one at a time, each of them will have their one sexual fantasy fulfilled. And after the night of bliss, the gal comes home (they all share a house and are roomies) to spill the deets to her friends, etc., blah, etc., romance follows.
When Bella experiences a serious fail with her initial Pact, Kole offers her a BDSM fantasy scene. He has been attracted to Bella for quite a while now, but she has rebuffed his advances because she hasn't been interested in BDSM. She has plenty of interest in Kole, just not too keen on his chosen lifestyle - until now.
I liked this book from page one. Anyone that has ever dated for any length of time can empathize with Bella during the opening scene; no matter your choice of partner. I couldn't help but chuckle right along with her.
Ms. Kennedy delivers a powerful erotic novel complete with a HEA. It contains what I feel are the necessary elements (dominance, submission, aftercare, power exchange) of a well-written D/s story. Due to the length of the book, they are covered in just enough detail without going overboard. If you are new to the world of BDSM, tread lightly here. Otherwise, Master Kole's dungeon has a plethora of toys, ropes, benches, and floggers - just to name a few - to tame even the most stubborn of submissives. And he isn't afraid to use them!
BEG FOR IT can be read as a stand alone. But after reading it, oh hell no! I'm going back and reading the first book, BIND ME. And to think, two more girlfriends to go!
