The Darker Side of Pleasure consists of three accounts of BDSM play. Each story facilitates a partner's freedom from a hang up, hence, happy endings. The components Ms Bradley shapes so notably are her characters personality and humility. She allows us to get into her characters heads. and hearts. Ms Bradley's writing is intelligent, insightful, and lays you into a hotbed of complexities placing her on my SUPREME LIST of favored authors.
I will restate an idea from my The Dark Garden review, another Eden Bradley book; If the BDSM label deters you from choosing this book it would be like not ordering a rootbeer float because the word beer is in the title, and you don't like beer! Take a chance, try to be impetuous and order a rootbeer float you may find you like beer after all.
In this steamy follow-up to her irresistibly erotic debut novel, Eden Bradley returns with a trio of tales that explore the darker side of pleasure.
Prepare to enter a provocative, scintillating world where three women are about to take ecstasy to the limit-and beyond. In The Bonds of Love a struggling couple will do anything to save their marriage, even if it means experimenting with a little bondage. But once their research moves beyond the bedroom, how will they know if they've gone too far?... In The Lair a woman answers an ad for a female submissive, ready to surrender to her body's deepest yearnings. Finding love is the last thing she anticipates. And in Love and Discipline a journalist expects her interview with a sensual extremist to be business as usual. Instead she finds herself submitting to the dominant desires of a handsome stranger-and discovering more about herself than she ever dreamed possible.
