Book 2 in the Pleasure Partners series.
Guy Stone is now a cyborg who can never go home to Earth. He wants a new life on Luna Ten…and a soul mate. A woman who will bow to his domination and revel in the satisfaction as he uses her body to sate his powerful desires.
When Guy sees Cassie, he vows to have her. She’s looking for a high-tech sexbot. He can pass as one—he already has the appropriate piercings. All he needs is the right jewels to enhance them and a shave. When she chooses him at the sex shop, he’s ready to play. The sex is incredible and Cassie is a natural submissive. Now Guy just has to convince her that he’s worth permanent exile from her home, her way of life.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a loving, uninhibited public sex scene.
Clare C's Review
Pleasure Slave takes place in a future where the Earth’s elite are still trying to preserve their idea of the “master” race. They have strict laws against humans having offspring with non-humans. They also limit the amount of technological advancements a person can have. On Earth, traditional families are out and breeding farms are in.
Cassie is taking one last vacation away from Earth before she goes to do her duty at a breeding farm. Guy is a pilot who crashed on that planet, and the technology installed in his body to save his life makes it illegal for him to return to Earth. He poses a sexbot in a store and she takes him back to her room where he turns the tables on her. Soon, Cassie is calling him Master and rethinking her life plan.
The writing in this novel is good, but I didn’t really connect with either character. Their relationship happens really fast. After one night with Guy, Cassie is willing to throw away everything she was raised to believe. Maybe they recognized unhappiness and desperation in one another?
The sex scenes were highly charged and erotic, especially if you like the idea of a lot of piercings. Guy definitely knew how to please Cassie, and when things took a D/s turn, she strove to please him as well. The ending followed with the rest of the novel as far as the importance of piercings and submission, but I would have liked to know the characters better.
