Review: MAID FOR PLEASURE by Lucy Rodgers
Libby Beckett is bored with her sex life. She has just broken up with her boyfriend who couldn’t find her G spot even if he had a GPS locator. She has decided to join Maid For It an online dating site for submissive women. She’s been curious about the BDSM lifestyle for some time and has agreed to go to a private island for two weeks to live out her most decadent fantasy as a sex slave.
Gavin Huntley is very clear as to what he expects from Libby and she can’t wait to submit to his every need. She develops feelings for him almost immediately and Gavin uses her intensely just as she has always fantasized about. Gavin was much less sadistic than I thought he would be. Although the collars that he makes for Libby are pretty twisted. I wasn’t sure if I liked him at first. But he did seem to genuinely care for Libby and knew that she would not be leaving the island as soon as she anticipated.
I thought the element of suspense when Libby was “rescued” from the island was an interesting twist. The book wasn’t as dark as I thought it would be but I did like the story. Gavin was definitely in charge of his company as well as everyone who lived on his small Island of Kink. Libby got exactly what she expected when she landed on the island and I liked the couple’s chemistry. Maid For Pleasure was a good novella that will appeal to readers who like dubious consent and Master/slave stories.
