It's BDSM Week!

This week, the Indulgent Bloggers are reviewing a variety of BDSM books by a variety of authors. For those of you wondering if this genre is right for you, check out the reviews. We'll be telling you just how hot the stories are - they range from light BDSM through dark BDSM - so you can decide which you prefer. But we're guessing some of you have already read at least one or two books in this erotically delicious genre. Enjoy our buffet of books this week - try some of our suggestions - and give us some suggested reads back by COMMENTING throughout the week.



IMPULSE CONTROL, Sara Brookes, Moderate BDSM, 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
Impulse Control (Sypricon Masters)Impulse Control is the first book in Brookes’ Sypricon Masters Series. It’s short and serves as an introduction to the sci-fi series but leaves you just wishing there was more. Brookes grabs readers with one of the best first lines I’ve ever seen: “Today was the cherry on top of a shitty week sundae”; and then moves you quickly through a BDSM exchange worth reading.

After finally catching a serial killer, Deputy Chief Marshal Selene Orasova heads to Tawse, a BDSM club on the planet of Sypricon, seeking a reminder that pleasure still exists in the universe. She’s disappointed when she finds the club nearly empty but when she moves to leave, she runs into Vaughn, the man she was “unconsciously” hoping to see. It was a bit strange – I wasn’t sure if she wanted to find him but didn’t want to say it or if she really didn’t know what she truly desired but others did and it took me awhile to determine whether the two knew each other and how well.

Anyway, Vaughn is one of the few Doms Selene has yet to match up with and he’s immediately intrigued by the hard edged reputation as an important deputy with their planet’s protective force. After just s few minutes with Selene, Vaughn quickly discovers she likes to “top from the bottom” but he is determined not to let that happen. Determined to dominate her and certain it’s what she really needs, Vaughn pushes Selene’s limits with some impulse control.
As a reader, I felt rather ambivalent about the characters. I neither really liked nor disliked either which left me feeling a bit uninvested. Though Vaughn does fit into my alpha male criteria - dominant, sexy, and still caring – and Selene has the strength I like to see in a heroine. And I always like the theme of giving up control to gain more freedom in BDSM books so overall, it was a good read.
