After far too much lackluster sex with her now-ex-boyfriend, Kristen Locke isn’t just ready to try something new. She’s ready to try everything. And as luck would have it, two of her good friends are more than willing to introduce her to the kinkier side of life: Experienced dominant Scott Moore wants to bring out the submissive in her. Neighbor and voyeur Matt Sommers quite literally sees the exhibitionist in her.

Little by little, they open up a whole new world to her, and Kristen’s about to learn that love can be found in the most unusual places…

I was completely entranced with Light Switch from the first chapter. There is nothing more exciting then starting a book that you hate to put down -- one that demands you finish it even if you have to give up a good night’s sleep to do it. What reader can resist a good book that starts out with the heroine kicking the boyfriend of four years to the curb because she is tired of the vanilla sex between them?

Kristen already knows she likes a little voyeurism/exhibition because of her “Window-to-Window affair” with her sexy neighbor Matt Sommers who lives in the apartment building across the alley. Now free from her boyfriend, Kristen is not sure what her sexual fantasies are, and allows Scott Moore a long time friend to introduce her into the world of BDSM.

Scott takes it slow wanting her to experience the positive parts of a Dom/sub relationship so she can get the feel of what she is looking for sexually. While enjoying her time with Scott and the BDSM scene, things change from the window-to-window affair with Matt to hot monkey sex and Kristen finds she likes being with Matt as much as she does with Scott. Knowing that Matt likes watching Scott and her through the window, she soon talks him into joining them in the bedroom. However, will exploring her sexuality end up hurting one of them in the end?

I loved the way Ms. Gallagher explained BDSM as being a teasing of the senses whether from pain, heat, cold, or even tickling. There are so many facets of the BDSM lifestyle that I did not realize or understand until reading Light Switch. One thing for sure, the action was not slow in this book with Kristen going from Scott to Matt -- then to the both of them in the sexual dance. I was surprised with the plot and did not expect a number of the events that took place in the story or the tangle web Kristen found herself in. I do love how the title Light Switch came about which made for even more excitement in the book.

As a whole, the book was a delicious and entertaining read -- with many catchy phrases and a lot of smart-alecky comebacks. A black cat makes you laugh and helps release some of the anxiety you get when you cannot wait to see what will happen next. The story piqued my sense of adventure if only in my mind. A definite must read for anyone who enjoys the BDSM theme with hot make-me-beg sex.
