Rowan Avery Walker is planning to surprise her husband after ten years of marriage. On their anniversary she decides to enact one of his most desired fantasies, and there's no traditional night out on the town for this couple. She's no stranger to role play, and when it comes to bedroom pleasures she likes to walk on the wild side. Ryder has never loved his wife more, and has a feeling that it'll be a night to remember. Starting off with unique gifts that peak his curiosity, his suspicions are confirmed when they pull up to their favourite members-only club. Where desire lives, fantasies are enacted, and the words Leather and Pleasure take on a whole new meaning. Rowan makes it an anniversary he’ll never forget.
Leather and Pleasure was my second introduction into the female dominatrix theme, which I found to be so hot that the air conditioner had a hard time cooling me off. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy an alpha female type story because personally, I am more of an alpha male kind of girl in the BDSM scene.
I don't read many short stories but had to get this one because I think that Jennifer Labelle is a brilliant new writer and I fell head over heels in love with her first published book. As you can guess, I wanted to see if she had the same wild imagination and writing skills in this book. What I found between the pages was definitely arousing and hot enough to melt chocolate. The dialogue and smart-ass comments that I loved in her first book were definitely present in Leather and Pleasure. The unique plot was more of a cute play on BDSM and not hardcore. There was teasing and just down to earth sexual play for the three characters.
Over all, Ms. Labelle did an amazing job in writing a nice detailed story with several twists I didn't see coming. One of the author's strong points in creating an entertaining tale is her skill in dropping in a new twist or two in the plot that has a way of surprising you when they play out. I loved reading this book and came away with a huge smile on my face just thinking about Rowan, Ryder, and Nolan. Definitely a story I can recommend.
