My Body-His Marcello is the second book in Blakely Bennett's My Body series. This erotic romance starts
off as we see Jane getting married to Luke. Luke and Jane embark on a tumultuous romance in book
one with Jane's introduction into the BDSM lifestyle. Unfortunately for Jane this is her first exposure to
such a lifestyle and is always finding her limits pushed by new demands of submission. Luke has
demanded that Jane's body be his for the taking and demonstrates this by having her marry him in the
nude with her mother, her and his friends in attendance. At the wedding she is introduced to Marcello,
a good friend of Luke's for the first time. Marcello is also in the BDSM lifestyle as are all of Luke's friends
in attendance at the wedding. Jane is taken aback at Marcello's insistence that he will “have” Jane on
her wedding night, however is chastised by Luke when she rebuffs him.
As their relationship progresses, Jane begins to see that she is not to have a will of her own, but
rather to submit to whatever the wishes or desires of Luke. When she “acts” against Luke's wishes by
being rude to Marcello at the wedding, she is later informed she must “pay” for her defiance with a
punishment doled out by Janice, Marcello's current female submissive, who also happens to be Luke's
ex-girlfriend. She has never been “disciplined” as harshly as Marcello dictates by Janice's hand,
however withstands this punishment. Jane continues to have a strong opinions and wills that are not to
Lukes liking and upon another episode of defiance is sent to Marcello's residence for obedience
training and punishment.
While under Marcello's dominance, Janice shows Jane tender care and the two women become
friends. Although Jane is jealous of Luke's past relationships in the first book, she has come to
acceptance that Luke loves her and she is the only woman that he has married, therefore looks past the
fact that Janice is Luke's previous lover and becomes friendly with the woman. Also while at Marcello's
residence she discovers a side to Marcello that she never anticipated. She discovers that although his
idea of discipline can be harsher he also shows a tender side. He is actually kind to her and begins to
change her opinion of him.
Without giving away the whole plot of the book, Jane continues down the path of total submission to
Luke, but discovers that she is no longer the Jane that she previously was and is not sure she likes the
changes. As the books continues Jane has a choice to make, continue down the path that she is going,
to which Janice has told her there is “no return,” or once again discover who she is and ultimately what
This book is a tumultuous, erotic ride that has you feeling the ups and downs that any relationship
has, however all the other aspects of a BDSM relationship also come into play making it that much
more difficult. A lot of emotion and erotica are in store for the reader of this book. I enjoyed this book
very much and highly anticipate what the third installment has in store for Jane.

My Body-His Marcello picks up where the first book left off. Jane is getting ready for her wedding to Luke, where she will be naked in front of everyone else! Despite her reservations, she loves Luke and she wants to please him. Everything is going great and they are finding a rhythm, when she breaks when on Luke’s rules. As punishment he gives her to his best friend Marcello for punishment.
Marcello is captivating and radiates pure dominance. When Jane is with him her body takes over and there is nothing else. When Jane and Luke reconcile, things really start looking up for them, she has even convinced him to make love to her, without the kink and bondage. But Luke keeps pushing her beyond limits and one day she just cannot take it anymore and rebel’s against his control. Luke cannot forgive her for going against the very control that he wields over her.
This book threw me for a loop. Halfway through I thought everything was going to work our for Jane and Luke and then, BAM everything changes. Honestly I cannot blame Jane for stopping it. Luke really took it too far. I am more worried about Jane. She gave up everything to be with Luke. Now she only has herself left. What is she going to do! I cannot wait to read the last book and see how everything turns out for her! I just hope she gets a happily ever after, especially after all that she has gone through.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The world that Jane has found herself in is both astonishing and exciting. The author builds character, for a character that has the reader feeling an onslaught of emotions. This second book of the trilogy has you on the edge of your seat (or maybe bed;) panting for more. It is written with the utmost care to have the reader truly understand the psyche of these characters that take us on a journey through this world that exists. I look forward to the next and final book that will let us know what path Jane takes to balance her mind yet fulfill her physical requirements after experiencing this world of wild passion. These books are in the MUST READ category!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
