Book review - Gina's Education by Mariah Bailey (BDSM romance) 2/5 stars

Tina's Education: A BDSM Love Story 
BDSM romance 
2/5 stars 


Gina’s Education: A BDSM Love Story is an adult fairy tale full of twists and unexpected turns.

Down on her luck after her identity has been stolen, Gina Perry applies for a job as a domestic servant, or so she thought, and quickly finds herself naked in every sense.

This job is psychologically challenging. Her new employer insists she call him Master, and there is a price to pay for not complying. A good Master, he pushes her limits and makes her grow. He teaches her about bondage and discipline, dominance and submission.

Master Robert re-names her Rose and gives her hope, but she isn’t sure she is up to the task. She’ll have to get to know herself on a much deeper level than most people ever discover.

Master Robert seldom shows emotion. Rose sparks something in him that he’s never realized before; a need to protect her, and not just in the games. While he’s learning about her, the depths of his feelings toward her surprise him. Robert’s never been in love and he resists, but he can’t resist his pride in her.

Robert sets out to right the wrong done to her and discovered a lot more than he expected. 

I really struggled with this book and eventually gave up at forty nine percent.  I found it unrealistic and I just couldn't connect with the characters or the story. Some readers may enjoy it, but unfortunately it wasn't for me.

Gina had her identity stolen and ended up homeless. She applied for a job as a domestic servant, but the job wasn't what she expected. At her interview she's told to strip, and reluctantly she does. Gina is given a new name of Rose by her employer Robert, and she becomes his submissive. Robert doesn't do emotion, feelings or relationships but there's something about Rose that pulls at his heartstrings.

Gina/Rose has led a fairly sheltered life up until now, and I felt that she adapted to her new life far to quickly to be realistic. Gina was an ok character, but I really didn't like Robert. I kept on with the book until Robert found the person who stole Gina's identity, and how Robert and Rose dealt with them really put me off and I had to stop reading. Sorry, this book is not for me. Two stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
