Overview

When Zoe, a struggling young musician living on the streets of Santa Monica is generously taken in by a mysterious producer named Clare, it seems like her luck has finally turned for the better. All the same, she can't help but wonder if the beautiful woman might have an ulterior motive for her, perhaps even a sexual one. Soon, however, Zoe discovers that Clare's intensely kinky plans for the two of them are far beyond anything she could have ever imagined. As time wears on, and her sexual limits gradually begin to disappear, Zoe must decide whether her connection with Clare is truly real... or if she's merely being played.

Editorial Reviews

R. Murray
After reading lots of BDSM erotica online, I was particularly impressed with this story. I've been involved in the BDSM scene for almost twenty years, and I get tired of erotica that depicts BDSM relationships as shallow and unrealistic, focusing on the shock factor without capturing the depth. This story was a refreshing change of pace. Yes, the action was HOT, but it wasn't just about the kink - it was about creating a natural, realistic depiction of an intense power-exchange relationship.

    SO GOOD!

    It's so rare to find well-written erotica with amazing sex scenes AND a good story, but here you go! Loved this! The characters are so amazingly well-developed, which only makes the already incredible sex scenes infinitely hotter (Zoe and Clare are sizzling together!) The sex always advances the story, and the story always advances the sex. The writer does a good job of getting us inside of Zoe's head as she gradually submits to this mysterious woman, so the BDSM is always meaningful and fascinating, even the stuff I personally am not into. LOVED the spanking, LOVED the sex, LOVED the electro scene... the watersports scene might have been a little too intense for me, but it was so well-written and understandable that I didn't even mind. Anyway, this is five star home run, no question. Can't wait to see more from this author!

    Erotica at its best

    This story stands heads and shoulders above its competitors. The writing is sharp and intelligent, with interesting characters you actually care about. Seriously, I could read a hundred erotic stories about Zoe Barnes if the author would write them. And yes, the sex scenes are excellent. They build naturally, they add to the story, and they're incredibly erotic (and intense, too - you've been warned...) Zoe and Clare develop a complex, fascinating relationship, and reading how it plays out both in and out of the bedroom was a treat. Would love to see some more from this author - definitely crossing my fingers for a sequel.

    I Heart Zoe

    AWESOME story! Lots of good twists and really good sex scenes, the kind that turn you on like nothing else without making you feel like a complete skank for reading them. And yes, I have a big crush on the main character and want to see lots more stories with her please (but then again, I'm a sucker for mousy submissive girls, girls with mohawks, girls with dyed hair, and girls who play guitar, so this wasn't even FAIR.) ;)
