Review by Fern

Recovering from a bad relationship, Walker comes to Purgatory looking for a place to call home. While he enjoys the casual play, he yearns to make a connection with a submissive for the long-term. The second he lays eyes on beautiful, mysterious Cass at the flogging station, his mind is made up.

Cass enjoys the sense of anonymity Purgatory gives her, and despite her determination to live by her rules she is unable to resist Walker. Can Cass overcome her personal demons to give in completely to the Dom who has her heart, and a mighty strong whip, in his hands?

Looking for a short, hot, and sweet BDSM story? Then Touch Me, Tease Me, Whip Me just might hit the spot.

Walker is a Dom in a rut. He needs something more than regular visits to the Purgatory BDSM club to satisfy his dominate nature, but finding the right submissive seems next to impossible. That changes the moment he’s introduced to the beautiful and quiet Cass. She’s a sub that was left to freefall when her former Master split without so much as a good-bye and fears trusting another Dom with her safekeeping. A tryst behind the club will prove something exists between Walker and Cass, but he’ll have to force the issue when the woman he knows will be a perfect sub tries to run away.

Though the work is well-written and I enjoyed the story, I was disappointed that we never get to glimpse anything through the eyes of Cass. Walker is the voice through-out, and that meant the circumstances that have left the heroine scared and afraid to trust are given second-hand. As the story is a novella, I understand character development oftentimes takes a back-seat to the action. But since Cass’s past is the conflict catalyst, and is one of the reasons Walker is drawn to her as a sub, it would have been nice to understand her a bit better. Without that connection, it’s was difficult to sympathize or understand her as a woman and a sub.

Otherwise, the story is fast paced and the sex scenes are scorching hot. When Walker finally masters Cass, he does more than touch, tease, and whip. He conquers that demon called fear, and leaves trust in its wake.
