Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, Rori Simon left town shy, unattractive, and with zero self-esteem. Now she's back, older, stronger and finally loving herself - and it shows. Hot men are soon knocking at her door, including Jude Callahan, the bad boy who starred in her teenage daydreams... and her adult fantasies.
Jude can't believe the sexy, confident woman before him is actually Rori! She's gotten under his skin like no other woman has... and she brings out secret desires he can't resist. He wants to dominate Rori with every fiber of his being. Wants to own her and pleasure her. To cherish her as he makes her his.
Rori discovers she likes being controlled. She also knows Jude is not a one-woman man. Everything changes when she meets Zach Helm. Edgy, sensual Zach knows just what she needs, and before long, she's in love. Jude watches them together and wonders if he's lost his chance forever.

Girl gets boys

In reading the summary, I thought this would be girl gets pretty comes back and gets revenge. Not even close. It was girl leaves town because she is fat and ugly due to mothers bad cooking (even though her older sister was prom queen, head cheerleader etc., guess she was eating elsewhere.) She comes back to town successful writer of sex books, she is now so beautiful that all the men in town fall in love with her. This town by the way is a woman's dream, all the men are in there twenties, muscular and well hung. We are told that Rory, are heroine, is better then the rest of the sluts in town, she has more respect for herself. She proves this by going to her knees on the first date ever time and swallowing. With one guy, on the second date she lets him tie her up, etc. We are then told that she is a very independent girl and she proves this by letting a man give her a collar that marks her as his property. In this town everyone is into Bondage and Submission, so all know when they see Rory's collar that she is his property,but that she is still an independent girl.

At first I thought I would enjoy this book, it started out fairly well, made some good points and seemed halfway intelligent. Chapter Five is an extremely good sex scene. After that it got stupider and stupider. The author often gets sex mixed up with love. The sex gets boring, it is all bondage and submission, which is fine every now and then, but nothing but? These guys need some imagination. You see the plot unfolding way ahead of time and you keep hoping no, don't be so stupid, but no it happens. The author uses cheats to get what she wants to happen to happen.

Not sure why it was in the erotic section...

I guess it made it into the erotic section because of the bondage stuff...but this book is TAME by normal bondage standards (assuming there are bondage standards), it was pretty vanilla. I really enjoy books that can bring my emotions through and this book does, I was really angry in parts, cried in others and laughed in others. Lauren Dane is an excellent author and Isabelle Gordon did a great job with the narration.
