When Eliza Ballas’ best friend, Caroline, introduces her to the enticing BDSM club Serve, Eliza is intrigued and more than a little turned on at the idea of surrendering and submitting in the bedroom. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, depending on how you look at it), Eliza believes her wide-eyed innocence when it comes to the more kinky aspects of sexual play will turn away potential partners. She turns to the one man she know won’t turn down pleasure and enlists his help to teach her what she needs to thrive at Serve – Oliver Preston, Caroline’s sexy older brother with whom she has shared a mutual attraction for the last seven years. Oliver agrees to give Eliza three lessons – three lessons that will give Eliza the confidence she needs to approach potential partners and the sensual acumen to please herself and her partner. But as Eliza and Oliver finally give into the attraction that has been simmering for the last seven years, they both begin to realize that neither of them are going to walk away unscathed from this union.
Oliver is a successful businessman who runs a magazine catering to those who enjoy a kinkier side to their sex. He’s a bit of a playboy and not one for relationships. He’s dominant in and out of the bedroom and enjoys rougher, wilder sex. Eliza is more vanilla – the candy and flowers type of girl, but with a hidden wild side that she is itching to explore. She’s no wilting flower though. Though intrigued by the idea of submission, she is confident and assertive when necessary. Together, Eliza and Oliver make a wonderful match.
I think what I loved most about this novel was the struggle of Eliza and Oliver to come to terms with their feelings with each other. The push-pull of attraction was there from the start and yet the reason why they had never given into their mutual attraction was realistic and believable. And yet when their lessons begin, it’s as if the floodgates opened. Wow! Wonderfully written, sensually seductive, and steaming hot!
