For our book of the month we decided to shake things up a bit and try Jayne Rylon's Pick Your Pleasure!
Tailor your perfect short story or be adventurous and read through all the different paths to see where life can take you…if you choose.
Go ahead, pick your pleasure.
Linley Lane, CEO of Lane Technologies, has had enough of blah dates. When she decides to shake things up with a visit to an underground sex club she’s heard rumors about, she realizes she’s way out of her league. This is no usual hookup spot.
Presented with two potential guides for the night—men who turn her on more in a matter of minutes than a year of lame dating in her high-class circles did—she’s got some tough decisions to make about how she wants to spend the rest of her evening and just how dirty she intends to get.
Will she choose to be romanced by a sexy gentleman? Or will she indulge the rare anonymity Underground affords to revel in wild excess with a like-minded rebel? And where will they go from there?
Everything is up to you.
REVIEW: We thought this book would make for a interesting book club meeting since with each person's tastes we would all choose a different path - wow, we were right! There weren't two people that even came close to choosing the same paths. So please be sure and come back daily as each of us will have a very different take on the book since in essence we all read different stories.
Basically the story doesn't have much plot. Linley is wealthy and is having trouble meeting someone that she likes and doesn't just want her for her money. After countless dates that don't stir her senses she longs for intimacy even if it just for one night. Not wanting any trouble she asks her body guard for help getting into a exclusive club where she can get her fill without any risk of problems the next day. Once she enters the club your opportunity to start making choices begins. She can leave or go home. If you choose to stay, then you get to choose between two men. I chose the more "All American, Executive, Cultered, Good Boy" type. He is your typical hero that is classy yet hot in the bedroom. Her other choice was more of the bad boy, slightly biker type, which would have led onto the more wild paths. Since I didn't choose him I can't speak to that part of the book. On the path I choose she then had choices of what the next places in the club they visited together and how intense things got or which experiences she/the reader wanted to have. All in all it was a fun and different type of book. It was well written but at it's heart was really about sex. There isn't much plot and for that reason I found the ending of the book irritating in that the author felt the need to give the couple a happily ever after. There just wasn't enough dialogue to warrant the ending. If you go back and read all of the different paths the book is a decent length but each path on it's own is relatively short. This is a fun quick read and a nice way to shake things up a bit.
