My Ratings

Review




Sexual




First and foremost, SOCIAL SERVICE is not a romance novel – not by a long shot.  If you’re the type of reader that needs an alpha male, HEA, or passionate tussle between the H/h to finally find their bliss, move along because you won’t find it here.  This is a novel of Master/slave relationships (M/s).

SOCIAL SERVICE is written from Heather’s POV.  She is a very talented lawyer who feels “betrayed” by those she trusted (in the vanilla world) when she first arrives at Rock Creek, a BDSM Community.  The BDSM Community is divided into different sections for different kinks.  They are explained in enough details to ensure Heather (and the reader) are well acquainted with what is expected.  Since Heather is still “new” in the Community, her Master has given authority to other high-level dominants to play (use) with her; as long as the command is followed by the appropriate “code” word.  

When I was about halfway through with this novel, I was ready to use my safeword.  I had enough.  No, it wasn’t what I was reading.  It was because of what was lacking for me in the story - what I wasn’t getting.  The story was a flatline:  No emotions, no hills, no valleys.   Oh, there was plenty of kinkiness, spankings, anal, forced nudity, etc., but I wasn’t feeling any connection between the main characters.  They were stick figures going through the motions.  Thankfully, all of that changes when Saturnalia happens and the M/s dynamics are reversed.  The slaves lost control, their base emotions took over, and they were punished for their actions.  Yes, the punishment is harsh (being sent to Section Seven - enforced slavery), but it is the emotional heartbreak when Heather is stripped of her collar that takes center stage.

Ms. Quinn has a Disclaimer at the beginning of her book, and for good reason.  The sexual play and scenes that she writes about in SOCIAL SERVICE are for an adult audience only.  Be warned:  The Master/slave relationship and dynamics include a wide range of scenes and include spanking, paddling, butt plugs, nipple clamps, forced nudity, branding, caning, public nudity, and quite a few others.  Even though a slave at her own choosing, Heather was able to use her safeword at any time.  And yes, SOCIAL SERVICE does have a HFN!

  1. Not my kind of story. I like a lot of romance with my bdsm story.
