Summary from the publisher:

Rebecca Venturas likes adventure. She scales mountains, jumps out of airplanes in search of an ungroomed ski run and loves pushing the envelope, in and and out of the bedroom. But bondage - that was something she was a virgin to. That is until she meets Will Cooper, the sophisticated and successful Wall Street guy who invites her to try.

Told through the eyes of both Rebecca and Will, The Bondage Virgin is the story of the night Will initiates Rebecca into the world of collars and cuffs, whips and chains, pain and pleasure, of domination and submission. What Rebecca thinks will be an isolated adventure turns out to be the beginning of something much bigger than she had ever imagined!

The Bondage Virgin is the first in a trilogy by Veronica J. Dantes



My Musings:

Rebecca is a person who loves to take risks and expand her horizons. She is always looking for new experiences outside her comfort level, and that most definitely includes her sex life. So when Will, the guy’s she’s just started dating, sends her a text message suggesting a kinky evening, she is eager to finally lose her virginity in the one area of sexual contact she’s never managed to experience. Will, for his part, is just as eager to introduce her to the pleasure and pain of being his beloved submissive. But will what they both want to do be what they need to have by the time they are finished?

I wanted to like this story more than I actually did. The author did a great job of building up anticipation from Rebecca’s point of view, and I was keen to discover not only what Will had planned but whether Rebecca would want to continue once she’d had a taste of how her life might change. The point of view switches between Rebecca and Will were effective but inconsistent, which I found somewhat frustrating at times. I also did not like that Will pretty much talked Rebecca out of having a safe word, especially since Rebecca was a complete BDSM novice. But the most distracting thing for me was the intermittent lack of correct punctuation throughout the story, especially when commas either appeared when they shouldn’t, or didn’t when they should.

I would really like to read the next two books in the trilogy when they are available because I want to know what will happen next with Rebecca and Will. But I hope that a copy editor will have a chance to look those books over before they are published.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
