Has anyone read this? I haven't - yet - but from what I've heard it's a bodice ripper type book with some BDSM/S&M thrown in, very badly written and totally over the top (as most of these books are).

I'm going to Big W and get a copy to read to Mr Rayne (he's dyslexic and finds reading difficult). I'm sure we will LOL and maybe even ROFPOL :lol: We do know a bit about this lifestyle.... :<|

My mum has downloaded them to her kindle - GO MUM!
She's 80!

I've heard different comments, most being negative, in fact I don't think I've heard of any really positive.

Well it certainly has broad appeal ... miss cleo was reading it the other night. :lol:

I almost bought it a few weeks ago when I'd never heard of it but decided not to, then that very night I saw a forum thread on it. Badly written Twilight fan fic / granny porn / neither description appealed. And of course I've read some funny reviews of it now too.

Sydney women paying men to spank, dominate

Master Aaron King:
"BDSM is much more complex and diverse than Fifty Shades of Grey."


It also requires a large amount of trust - I doubt I would pay someone I had just met to tie me up and spank me, even if they were a professional :roll:

It is not a book that interests me but the movie that is a different kettle of fish especially if there is plenty of Jamie Dornan ... :)
