This book is a little bit of magic. It's everything BDSM fiction should be. I remember reading installments years ago as they were being written, and being fixated. It's such a joy to have them all in novel form to be devoured as a whole. I'm very much looking forward to the coming books and the continuation of the tale! ~Sommer Marsden

When I first spotted this title, a "fictionalized memoir" or novel based on the author's life, I was thoroughly intrigued. I've always loved Tyler's erotic fiction and to read of a young woman's road to discovery of her submission and masochistic nature was a titillating thought. I read this book in one sunny afternoon, and was both impressed and emotionally engaged by the story. Tyler is no one's idea of a naïve girl. She knows what she wants - the darker the better - and the men she encounters seem to know it immediately, as well. Her desire to please her dom and her sexual pleasure in receiving pain is illustrated again and again. But this is no story of a woman abused or unwillingly dominated. It is the straightforward story of BDSM and consensual relationships and, in fact, the most disturbing relationship is the most vanilla! Tyler writes with humor, dark emotion, humanity and this book is a journey into the heart and mind of a young woman who was never ordinary. I cannot wait for the sequel, and will be gobbling it up, as well. The tag that describes it perfectly: "A kinky fairy tale with a happy ever after." And once you've read this novel, you'll eagerly be seeking out Ms. Tyler's other works and anthologies.
