The second in a series of novels by bondage connoisseur Alison Tyler features heroine Samantha progressing with her predilections and exploring the deepest recesses of her master's dungeon and her heart. The Delicious Torment is a Story of O meets 9 1/2 Weeks coming-of-age tale fueled by lust longing and based on the author's personal diaries. The Delicious Torment takes readers to Sunset Strip way up in the sky in a penthouse apartment overlooking Los Angeles with a love affair ensconced in an S&M relationship filled with corsets crops and plenty of kink. In the introduction Tyler notes "This is a novel with me at the center. That is my heroine is based on me. I've sketched her with broad strokes but at our core we are the same. She's gotten herself entwined with an older man -- nothing new there. But now she has to learn how to maneuver a 24/7 relationship."

Enchantingly sexy story you will LOVE I saw this book at a store and was intrigued by the cover and the copy on the back jacket. It drew me in and then the story completely engrossed me. What is even more amazing to me is that this is part three of a trilogy and I did not even know it. I will now go back and read the first two and I can;t wait to reread "Wrapped Around Your Finger." Deliciously romantic and so sexy. I feel revived by the sheer passion in these pages. Bravo to Alison Tyler and to whomever wrote the copy that invited me into Sam's special world.
The second in this trilogy of "fiction" - which prolific author and editor Tyler openly admits is based on her own life and journey as a submissive woman - is even more poignant, hot and luscious - as well as uplifting - as the first installment, Dark Secret Love. In Torment, we find Samantha still adjusting to life with her Sir, Jack. Having survived the tumult of earlier affairs, she's found exactly the sort of Dominant she's been looking for. He seems to know exactly what she needs - which includes the deliverance and ecstasy she finds in receiving pain. Whereas it was the wrong man at the wrong time that gave her trouble the last time, in Torment it is Jack's assistant - and helper in all this BDSM, including tormenting Sam in Jack's stead. The every day of Sam's writing life, coupled with the steamy kink of her love life with Jack is rendered perfectly, including the knife-edge she walks as she waits to hear Jack say those three little words. And the lessons she's forced to learn about herself, her feelings for Jack and how their future might play out. When his assistant Alex's emotion are exposed, Sam has to face Jack's past - a past she knows nothing about - as well as the possibility that the relationship she hoped for might not work as she'd planned. Straightforward, with an immediacy perhaps due to Ms. Tyler's intimacy with the subject (!) and the subject matter, The Delicious Torment is a wonderfully textured glimpse into the mind, and heart - and body - of a young woman looking for the perfect man to make it all hurt so good. Emotional with no holes barred sexual heat, Torment is blended beautifully with humor and insight into the human heart. Grab a fan. You'll need it when Jack starts unloading his special closet and Sam faces his kinky Torment.
