That’s definitely a phrase I’d use to describe The Big Book of Bondage, just released by Alison Tyler. I had been aiming to get a story published in one of Alison’s anthologies, and was absolutely delighted when she accepted not one, but three of my stories. One of them is in The Big Book of Bondage, and the others are coming later this year. But anyway, that’s not the point of this post, I just wanted to have a tiny squee there 😉
Alison had the fab idea of doing a blog tour whereby people would review a single story from the collection on their or Alison’s blog. I nabbed Alison’s story, and here are my thoughts on Burned:
Um… wow. I could leave it there, leave you guessing, but I won’t. This is a kinky tale about a recently married woman, Lola, whose ex-lover comes back into her life. Her ex-lover happens to be a woman. A woman who tied her up, spanked her, belted her, made her come like she’d never come before. Jenny is also a very unpleasant person. A thief, a liar, a dragon, a bitch and a heartbreaker. So Lola is worried when she turns up, worried she’s going to ruin things between her and her husband, Rick. Rick, on the other hand, is fascinated by Jenny, about how hers and Lola’s relationship used to be. Despite Lola’s attempts to keep Jenny at arm’s length, she manages to get what she wants from the married couple, threatening to burn their relationship to the ground.
This was one seriously hot story. I don’t want to say any more and spoil it, but this is a fantastic example of a bondage story, one that has emotional sensation as well as physical. It’s kinky, sexy, and most importantly, it keeps you guessing. I didn’t see the ending coming, but I suspect that is exactly what Tyler wanted. Another top read from a top name in erotica.
