Review: Take Me, Break Me by Cari Silverwood
Jodie is scraping the barrel trying to stay afloat. An idea arrives that could rescue her finances and bring her together in a kinky way with a man she never gave up on. She's terrified and fascinated, and tempted as hell.
Capture fantasies rule her eBook. Re-enacting one in a documentary would surely be irresistible viewing to millions of women?
But Jodie and Klaus discover that underneath an ordinary man dark desires may lurk. What will win in the end? The man and lover, or the monster?
Warning: Capture fantasy; dubious consent; anal play; M/f as well as one m/f/f/m scene; BDSM themes including caning, spanking, bondage, and needle play. Also contains one beginner Dom who is exploring sadism but is still working out how and when to stop.
Wow, can I just say wow! I can say wow right? Wow!! Holy intense! There is a lot going down in this book. What starts out as an idea for a documentary turns into a complete switch from vanilla to kink. I really loved that you had the perspectives of both Jodie and Klaus, and it wasn't done in a way that made it seem like the author is flipping sides just to switch. You'd be in the mind of Jodie and what was happening and then you sit there thinking, what is Klaus thinking? Is he okay? Is he doing this just cause or does he really like it? I think one of the phrases she uses in the book describes it pretty well.
It's a mind fuck. For Jodie, for Klaus, for me. The only thing I wasn't a big fan of was the needle play, but that's nothing against the author, that's just cause I have a big fear of needles. Yuck. I enjoyed the book, I enjoyed that they also gained a good support system for the two of them to learn from to make sure no one got hurt.
