Something new from the pen of Al Daltrey was sitting in my Kindle. And I can’t tell you how excited I was to read it. Pleasure is a story that features three lovely ladies. Each one with their own individuality, style and way of living. Biljana, Vicky and Jasmin. Childhood best friends who have remained close throughout the years.
Biljana: Devastated by the loss of her lover in a tragic accident. Coming to terms with the grief that she was experiencing, she shut herself off from the world. Gradually with time, the pain eased but the loss was still very much alive and nothing was making it better. Through financial gain she decides to take herself off. Change her surroundings and try to find the peace that she so desperately craved. A new country leads to new adventures which slowly brings her back to life. Mentally, physically and sexually.
Vicky: Happily married to Andrew or was she? Their physical relationship had dwindled down to next to nothing and things were becoming boring. After one heated argument, the passion between the two escalated and both were overcome by their feelings. What happened next made her toes curl! Fearing that something was terribly wrong, Vicky did the one thing I shouted at my kindle for her not to do. “Never read someone else’s emails.” There will always be something you don’t want to see; needless to say, she didn’t listen and what she finds will change her life.
Jasmin: An undercover cop who always went that extra mile for it and seemed to enjoyed it at the same time. A close encounter with a criminal awakens feelings in her that she cannot deny, and she didn’t. Even though she knew it was wrong she couldn’t resist. She was irrevocably drawn to him, he knew it and played on it. What was it that he wanted from her?
I loved the layout of this story. Getting to know each of these ladies separately helped me understand where their personal journey was taking them. Every chapter was dedicated to each of them and I was hooked. As one chapter ended, another would begin leaving me wondering what was going to happen next. The talented Al Daltrey brought insight into the workings of a woman’s mind. Love, lust and pleasure were the three main ingredients that these ladies shared. This book was well written, well thought out and well presented. Definitely a pleasure to read. Thank you Al Daltrey. I look forward to you next instalment. Five pleasurable stars!
By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.
This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn’t mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.
Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don’t for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.
Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.
One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise – I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was ‘Testing the Submissive’. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent – all of which motivated me to continue writing. ‘A Condo with Two Views’ is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!
