New doors and new worlds open up when the murders of sexually dominant women, involved in the world of BDSM, lead her to Dr. Anderson Wells. A psychologist and sexual submissive, Anderson offers to be her guide. They soon find themselves exploring on more intimate levels. In her, He sees the strong and forceful woman he craves. She sees in him a man strong enough to surrender control.

As he escorts her into the world of kink parties, leather corsets and safe words she flourishes, becoming the kind of woman she never dreamed. Even as they become closer, both as lovers and as Dominant and submissive, new murders and his own lie make Anderson a suspect and then the target of a cop looking to clear his own name.

Events and passions collide with bite marks, pretty underwear and murder in a world where cops may be killers and lovers may hold whips. Eleanor Silver has to let go of her pain to claim for herself the life she wants and risk everything to save the man she loves.

 

 

 

 

I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

 

“Killing someone is hard work. Harder than it looks in the movies.”

 

 

I loved this book! I’ve been struggling with a bit of burn out lately and this is exactly what I needed. This book has an amazing story with a bit of erotic romance and BDSM elements all throughout. In my opinion this has a perfect mix of murder, mystery, suspense and romance.

While investigating a possible serial killer, Detective Silver also discovers a lot about herself and what makes her happy. She meets Anderson through a mutual friend and he is Silver’s “inside guy” that introduces her to the world of BDSM so she can catch a killer that is hiding in that world. This is where Silver starts to understand more about herself and finally figures out what has been missing in her life.

 

 

“If I wanted him, I had to make it happen. My responsibility. If I want to be happy, it’s my choice to make. It’s easy to say, but it is not just saying, today I’m going to be happy. You have to risk what you have this moment for what you want in the next.”

 

 

There were times when Silver was getting on my nerves. She seemed to be a taker and not a giver when it came to Anderson. I get it that the BDSM lifestyle is new to her and this is exactly what men used to do with her, but you don’t have to turn around and do the same thing to someone else, unless that is what they want. Which it’s not what Anderson wanted. However, I really liked Silver’s overall character as well as Anderson and all the other side characters. I think they were well developed and believable.

I really love all the local references. I was born and raised in Kansas City and still live here. KCK is my old stomping grounds and that is where all my family lives. Overland park, KCK, Northland, downtown area, just everywhere! I especially loved the reference to Missie B’s, Hayes Hamburgers and several other local places. I use to go to Missie B’s a lot in my 20’s. I loved the Drag shows! All I remember is Flo. Probably because my sisters exgirlfriend use to bounce there. One thing I don’t know is, where in the world are all the dungeons? But anyway… back to the story.

This was a fantastic mystery and it kept me guessing until it was time for me to know who, what, when and why! There were moments that made me feel like my heart was going to beat out of my chest and I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I loved it!!

The sex was excellent! But my favorite part was at about 14% in when Silver was “like a cat marking her territory”. YAAASSSS! You go girl!!

I also liked the first meeting that Silver and Anderson had. I really hate anything to do with feet, so this is pretty significant for me. Very well done! Bravo! Actually all the sex scenes are really good and erotic.

So why 4.5 stars? Only because there were moments in the middle of this book that seemed to drag on. I couldn’t pinpoint which one, but sometimes I was tired of hearing about Silver’s internal struggle with drinking and not knowing who she is and how she didn’t want Anderson around unless she wanted to use him for something. All I really wanted was to read more about the investigation.

One thing I don’t like (but has nothing to do with my rating) while reading any book is the overuse of the word “passion”. It’s worse than the word “moist. The word Passion is not overused in this book and is probably only used 3 or 4 times. The reason I bring it up is because I think that word gets overused so much that it really stands out to me when I read. I have come to hate that word and anytime I hear it, I cringe. I’m not a wordsmithing word wizard so I have no idea what you would use in its place. That is just my personal opinion and issue. I’m sure 99.9% of the people out there are fine with that word, I’m just the weird one.

Overall this entire book is a great read and will keep you glued to the pages. There is a reason why this book won the BDSM Writers Con Golden Flogger Award for Best BDSM book of the year. I loved it 🙂

My favorite quote:

 

“Do you know what the difference is between sexy and kinky? Sexy is when you use a feather while making love. Kinky is when you use the whole chicken.”

Drury Jamison is not a bestselling author, yet. But he believes hard work will prevail. He has been writing since he could read beginning with, what we now call fan fiction, stories about favorite DC Comics heros. Since then he gave all his attention to the story at the expense of the rules making rewriting very important.

Born an Army brat he finally settled and came to call the Missouri Ozarks home. While raising wonderful kids and failing at everything else, he wrote screenplays, television scripts, advertising copy and filthy limericks. After many twists, and multiple once-in-a-lifetime life changing events, he returned to work on the short stories and novels he loved best.

While surfing the Internet, meandering from website to website during an episode of insomnia, Jody ends up on an esoteric blog about virtual reality software and accouterments, where an ad for an intriguing product catches his attention. A stunning femme fatale boldly proclaims that Jody can live out all his sexual fantasies in the privacy and safety of his own home by purchasing the Virtual Reality Mistress. To the sleep deprived Jody that sounds like a pretty good idea, so he places an order and a few days later a Fedex package arrives that changes his life forever. Using information gathered from a battery of assessments and questionnaires filled out by Jody, this product provides him with customized virtual reality fantasies based on his core sexuality. The only trouble is he is not aware of how dark some of his true desires are. Jody embarks on an always erotic but sometimes unsettling journey determined to make peace with his demons.

 

 

Review

 

 

I really liked this. It was kinky and really made me think. I don’t think we are too far away from this type of reality now.

Im sure at some point we’ve all sat in front of our computers or on our phones just wasting away in cyber land. Well, what would you do if you found a website that offers you to live out all your sexual fantasies in the privacy and safety of your own home. You would be suspicious right? I know I would. But the thought that you could explore new things without having to be shy about it or worry that your partner will think your type of kink is too strange. There would be no consequences to your level of kink. I would totally buy into this. So, after investigating and determining that this Virtual Reality Mistress is legit, would you buy it?

 

 

description

 

 

Jody, our protagonist, does exactly that. Fills out questionnaires and customizes this Virtual Reality to his fantasies. Jody starts off simple to test the waters. What he gets is a fantasy that he’s had for a very long time and now he gets to live out that fantasy. But the first session didn’t last long so Jody’s appetite for the Virtual Reality Mistress was intensifying. So he quickly moved on to the next level and bumped up the intensity.

How much is too much? At what point do you get immune to this stuff and seek out more intense and longer sessions?

 

 

“Please kneel with you head down and you ass in the air.” With a questioning look on my face I did as I was asked while Lori went to her desk, retrieved a medium-sized butt plug and a tube of Astroglide, returned to my side and stood over me.

 

 

Im not going to hash out all the naughty details. You’ll just have to buy the book and read it for yourself. However, I will say that each session gets extremely more intense, more kinky and really pushes the sexual envelope.

 

 

“I sure hope you take to this because you make a fine-looking pony,” then climbed into the buggy and snapped her whip. “let’s take a little tour around the ranch to break you in.”

“I could indulge in the most outrageous fantasy imaginable with complete confidence that I would come away from it unscathed when the timer ended the session. With that realization, I resolved to discover how decadent my fantasies could get by initiating a session at the highest possible setting.”

“The world of sexual fantasies is a strange place indeed.”

 

 

Overall, I really liked it. There are parts in here that make me VERY uncomfortable, but its all part of the virtual reality, right. With that being said, there are some also really naughty panty wetting parts as well. Yes, there is sex and a ton of it, but depending on your kink level and open mindedness and curiosity, if you will enjoy it or not. So… are you ready for the Mistress?

 

 

WARNING! Book includes: Penis slapping, genital mutilation, pegging, face dildo’s, enema, pony play, giant dildos/fisting, anal, CBT cock ball torture, violet wand, transvestite, humiliation, LGBT, sissy, Master slave. I’m pretty sure I’ve missed some, but you get the idea.

About The Author

 

 

I primarily write erotica with BDSM themes. Three of my erotic novellas, Uncharted Territory, The Accidental Domme, and Virtual Reality Mistress, plus an anthology of short stories, Ten Shades of Submission, are currently available wherever naughty e-books in that genre are sold.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I left high school in my senior year to live the bohemian life in New York City’s Greenwich Village and Lower East Side. Not being a big fan of cold weather and crowded tenements, I returned to the West Coast within six months and lived in Berkeley for several years. While there, my claims to fame include being folksinger Malvina Reynolds’ neighbor/tenant and part owner of the Northside Theater, a repertory cinema of some renown.

After leaving Berkeley, I put myself through college and earned a B.A. in Journalism from USC. My eclectic career since then has encompassed editing, writing, business management, social work, teaching, and web publishing, with stops in northern and southern California, Hawaii, Florida and Oregon.
