I enjoyed this audiobook very much, it's a strong story with interesting, well developed, characters. While the erotic scenes were well written they are not the focus of this story, this story is about Leilla King's life, not just the erotic moments of her life. I did find the authors writing style to be a bit too formal (especially the dialogue) and a bit wordy. I thought that the amount of detail and the number of adjectives used were a bit extraneous and sometimes rather tedious. I'm sure that some readers will enjoy this attention to detail but it just kind of caused the story to drag in places for me.
Erin Bateman's narration was quite good, although her Canadian pronunciation of certain words was a bit disconcerting since the book is written in the first person voice of Leilla King who is a Los Angeles girl.
While this book is not exactly my cup of tea, I do think it will appeal to many Femdom fans and it is certainly a quality piece of BDSM erotica.
The story itself is excellent! I felt it took a while to get to the climax, but it makes sense for there being a second one. The resolution was short but satisfying. I think the development of the main character was a bit lacking, in comparison to the character Matthew who seemed to have the most depth. Each character was very strong in their own, however, the overbearing boss, the utterly submissive pet, and the two halves of Leila King were each very different. Worth the read, or if you want, the listen.
Pros: Excellent imagery and descriptions. The story doesn't revolve around BDSM, but more like the BDSM is woven in very smoothly. The characters are strong and simple.
Cons: A few awkward moments of repetitive word use. The narrator's obviously Canadian "soory" was hard to get over.
4 Stars overall. Definitely a good read.
