Fleur de Nuit by Cat Montmorency
F/F BDSM romance
The difference between wanting and taking is the barest catch of a breath…
Bourbon Street Bondage, Book 1
Decadent food, smoky music, dark delights—who could live in the French Quarter and not be tempted to partake? Moira D’Arcangelis, that’s who.
Ever since her college boyfriend tried to add her to his list of murder victims, she’s lived a quiet life, which is code for no life at all. When her best friend Kara convinces—okay, drags—her to meet Adrian LaCroix, master of the local underground kink scene, his commanding presence and sexy Cajun accent bring her latent desires back to life.
His offer to train her as a Domme is the key to regaining control of her life. Yet becoming Adrian’s protégé comes with complications. As he opens her body, mind, and soul, she begins to see Kara in a new light—right about the time a legendary Domme returns, intent on stealing Kara away.
Moira has a fight on her hands. For Kara, and against a past that comes roaring back with a vengeance. She’ll need every trick Adrian can teach her to win the right to both life—and love.
Warning: This book contains more seasoning than a New Orleans kitchen. It’s simmering over with sex. Boy/girl sex. Girl/girl sex. Girl/boy/girl sex. Sex toys, sex talk, sex clubs, dark and troubled sexual pasts…you get the picture. Could be too spicy for beginners, but hey, where there’s Cajun heat, there’s fire. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
I don't come across many F/F books that feature BDSM, so I was very excited to have the opportunity to review this one. Initially I found it a bit hard to get into, but after the first couple of chapters I was totally hooked. Honestly I found this book kind of addictive! It's set in a kink club in New Oleans, and the author managed to bring this magical setting alive. It has just enough French words and phrases in it to add to the atmosphere, but not enough to confuse someone who's forgotten 99% of the French that I learnt in high school!
Since being brutally raped and attacked by her boyfriend, Moira has been afraid to live. Her best friend Kara comes up with a madcap plan to help her regain control of her life - train to be a Domme! Moira becomes the protégé of flamboyant Dom Adrian LaCroix and soon finds herself enjoying this strange new lifestyle. She also finally realises that she's in love with Kara. But when Kara's former Domme arrives back on the scene wanting to collar Kara, Moira may have left it too late to discover her feelings.
The storyline is unique with some nice twists that keep you gripped right up to the last page. As you'd expect there are a lot of sex and BDSM scenes in this book - and boy oh boy are they hot! The BDSM scenes are all very well written, varied, imaginative and extremely sexy. I loved both main characters, but I must admit that my favourite character was Adrian - I hope we will be seeing much more of him in future books in the series. This is a fantastic book that receives five out of five stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
