Annie’s dominant lover, Mark, gives her Tom Baldwin, the TV actor heartthrob and fellow submissive, as a birthday present. Annie has plans for Tom, but the best laid plans can derail—in extreme and satisfying directions.
Lord of the manor and his miscreant servant girl, what could be more fun? This is a sexy story about a woman who has a role play fantasy with a friend/crush. It is also a story about people who live lifestyle BDSM and who share their partners with their circle of like mind-friends. It contains characters who also feature in Oh’s other stories such as Power Exchange and Divertissement.
This story starts out a little slow. But maybe cyber sex just isn’t my cup of tea. Mark is a heavy-handed Dom and Annie’s true love.
The story really heats up nicely once it gets to the role-play parts with Annie and Tom. Annie is the practical schoolteacher with a secret sex life and Tom is the television heartthrob who is also a submissive to his “boss”. Annie is the nice girl next door type who likes to be spanked and ordered around by her strong Dom lover, Mark. She’s intelligent, a bit introverted but has a slumbering sensuality and highly responsive submissive sexuality that charms the men and women of her sexual circle.
The sexy friendship and attraction between Tom and Annie is well developed, spicy and sweet at the same time. I enjoyed this part of the story very much. Those with a history fetish will love their role-play session.
If you’re looking for a classical romance type story, you may not be satisfied with this short story. But if you’re into just some sexy fun, then you’ll love it.
