The long awaited book two of the Pleasure, Pain or Purpose series. I say long awaited because I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on this book for quite a while, and getting reacquainted with Billie, Vicky and Jasmin who I call Sistas from another Mista! Although not blood related they are as close as.
Book two starts by taking us on an overseas trip. All three ladies decide to rent a cabin in the secluded hills off Chile. What started out as a peaceful trip soon became otherwise … Tut tut that’s all I’m saying. Can’t give it all away now, can I? Needless to say, the girls pulled together and stayed strong for each other and lessons were learnt from this experience. It also made them realise what is most important in life; in their life.
Vicky, still battling her own insecurities regarding her marriage to Andrew decides to test his loyalties by trying to trap him on several occasions. He passes with flying colours and Vicky realises she needs to move forward and trust her husband. An out of town trip to Vegas works wonders!
Jasmin is still torn between two men. The goody or the baddie? One gives her something that she craves for sexually and is sexually attracted, too. And the other is her boss. Can she cross the boundaries that are set in place with a work colleague? Has she left it too late when she finally comes to realise which one she wants?
Billie. Unable to settle, she decides to take herself off overseas again. Feeling the loss of David, she can’t seem to let him go. She finds other ways to channel her grief though. While not comfortable with making love with another man, being a submissive opens up opportunities for her. Decisions need to be made and plans need to be put in action.
As per usual, Al Daltrey has delivered a compelling and well written story. I couldn’t find fault with it at all and am still in love with his characters. Each one so individually different in personalities, but they all seem to fit.
Let’s start with Vicky. I like her. I can understand how she feels concerning her trust issues with Andrew, but I do agree it’s now time for her to get over them and move on. Otherwise she will lose him.
Jasmin. She is one feisty chick. Takes no sh** from anyone either! Brains, beauty and a kickass attitude is a perfect combination for an undercover cop who excels in her job.
Billie. I call her the Nomad. Can’t settle, always on the move. I envy her the ability to just up sticks and go wherever she wants. However, enough is enough and she needs to sort her life out.
I look forward to book three, Purpose, and to catching up with the ladies and all their exploits. Thank you Al Daltrey for a most excellent read which merited five well-deserved stars.
Title ~ Pleasure Pain or Purpose: Book One- Pleasure
My day job requires 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. Meanwhile, as my business 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. I’ve always loved vanilla sex too – but BDSM became the icing on the cake.
During my lifetime 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 married.
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 very positive including excellent reviews. That motivated me to keep writing, and ‘A Condo With Two Views’ became my second full-length novel. A few other projects are also in the works.
If you decide to read my book(s), I truly hope you enjoy it.
