Double Entendre (Lesbian's in Leather - Book 1)


Loved it! 😍

A wonderful story of finding health and happiness in loving submission!

Oh my, did this ever speak to me! An over-worked, stressed-out career woman who works herself to exhaustion? Who is too busy, too consumed by work to recognize the romantic or erotic opportunities before her? So been there and done that, I found my heart breaking for Quinn from the get-go.

Submission has always been an outlet for me, a means of reducing my own stress and anxiety, so to see that explored so beautifully with Quinn and Mistress Jade was just wonderful! This is a story that is intense in its passions, full of pain and pleasure, with absolutely glorious BDSM scenes to enjoy. I lost myself in it, restricting myself to a few chapters each night so I could make it last.

The love story here is just as delightful, not in spite of its slow progression but because of it. We get to see Quinn grow emotionally, to realize she is worthy of that love, and the way Mistress Black Rose so intimately tied the concepts of love and submission together . . . well, it made my heart sing even as I whimpered in delight. This story is the difference between a scene and a lifestyle, and we need more books like this!

There was one aspect that I felt was a little strained, a little hard to believe (which I will not get into for fear of spoilers), but not so much that it took me out of the story. Really, I loved this from beginning to end and I am delighted to read whatever Mistress Black Rose has for us next!
