Okay, first off, I want to get this out of the way: This book may be a bit intense for some readers. If you're all about 50 Shades of Grey, well, this is far beyond that! If you're looking for a deeper portrayal of M/s that goes beyond spankings and glaring, this is the book you want!
I don't often find erotica that I love enough to give the highest rating to, since I am pretty kinky myself. I want intense scenes, but I also want it to be believable. A lot of books seem geared to a more vanilla crowd, and leave me wanting. This book did not.
The setup here is that Molly has been loaned out for a week to Mephisto. It's unusual for a BDSM novel to have a heroine who already knows what she wants and needs. Other reviewers have seen Molly as stupid or mentally ill, but I see a character who is genuinely flawed, but by the time the novel takes place she has found ways to use her desire for submission to make herself stronger. When the narrative begins she has already been in an M/s relationship and has grown within it.
Mephisto is cruel, but in ways that are VERY hot to me. Again, people not into total power exchange might be put off by this, but I can see how the author has woven in the nuances of this type of relationship and has conjured up scenes that are full of the "Oh my god, I don't know if I can take this!" feeling, while still being consensual and safe. There is a lot of corporal punishment, and orgasm denial, and speech restriction. And then there are the subtle hints of what is to come in the rest of the trilogy . . .
