    After reading Pandora¿s Box, by Skye Michaels, I¿m definitely go

    After reading Pandora’s Box, by Skye Michaels, I’m definitely going to check out the books in her first series that have lead up to this book. “The Le Club “ series takes one couples story in each book. And the couples continue to make appearances in this series (Golden Dolphin). Sometimes you just can’t get enough.
    Pandora’s Box focuses on a young photographer, Pandora Wescott, avenging her sister’s suicide, after finding a note saying she couldn’t live without her “Master.” She also finds troubling photos—showing that her sister had been in an extreme BDSM lifestyle.
    This aspect of the book really sucked me in. I think about this kind of thing a lot: how much do we know about our neighbors, our friends, our family? Michaels skillfully weaves Pandora’s discoveries about her sister into a clever plot. She finds out about a cruise her sister had taken with her Master—a luxury yacht providing the venue for BDSM. She signs up and learns all abut the lifestyle.
    The classroom scenes were some of the most interesting in the book. One the one had, the teachers are very professional and clinical in what they are teaching. On the other hand, sometimes the students are naked. And the couples break off to learn these BDSM methods. Pandora, at first, is a little embarrassed, but catches on quickly and begins to fall for John Grayson— the Master Dom on board. Many complications arise and, while I don’t want to give away too much in the book—I will say he is a determined to make it work as she is. But their obstacles seem daunting and are serious.
    For people interested in the BDSM scene, this book provides another glimpse into it. The characters are thoughtfully drawn, plot moves right along, and the sex scenes are fascinating. On the one level, there is this BDSM play through the book, but it doesn’t feel kinky to me because the characters felt very real. They have kids, they work on their relationships—it not all about the sex. Michaels has worked very hard, I think, to let us glimpse the everyday aspect of BDSM. At it’s heart, this book is a very romantic—albeit HAWT— love story.
