After listening to Jenny Nordbak's marvelous podcast The Wicked Wallflowers Club (co-hosted with Sarah Hawley), I decided to give her memoir a try and I'm so glad I did. Nordbak worked in construction by day and as a dominatrix by night. She has fascinating stories from both worlds but what I found most interesting was the ways she grew in confidence and self-understanding as the book progressed, particularly with her relationships. It's really about her journey of self-discovery and I really enjoyed seeing how this played out. There were a number of stories (the candle wax scene!) that made me laugh out loud, making for quite the engaging read.

This is beautifully written; it is honest, compassionate and very very real. Ms Nordbak takes us on a journey of self discovery and it is a message of love, acceptance and empowerment. I gasped, cringed, laughed and cried. I was given insight into a world I barely knew existed and by the end I knew I was changed forever. You cannot put this down once you start. It is a must read!

I received a this book for a honest review. I was blown a way by the emotional ride this book was. Each chapter takes you to a new experience yet still all ties together. At times I was laughing then completely intrigue to crying. For someone who has never thought of checking out this genre it is a were to start. The open honesty allows you to want to take this adventure with her. For those who "play" it makes thing that we already known in to words and gave new ideas
