Title: Speed Dating
Author: Yvette Hines
Rating: 5 out of 5
Jenna Taylor a legal secretary is in love with her deliveryman, Malcolm Douglas. Apprehensive about how to go about getting him to notice her, she begins to order packages daily in an attempt to force his hand. However, three months into the delivery scheme she discovers Malcolm has not caught on and believes she owns a home business. Dejected, Jenna follows the advice of her friend, a Dominatrix, attends a Valentine’s Day speed-dating event and embarks on a clandestine adventure she’ll never forget. When she meets L’entraîneur (The Trainer) he shows her a completely new side of herself.
What sets ok sex apart from one hell of a good time sex? A masked man that you don't know. Ok so I'm a total sucker for sex with a stranger. Which means I seriously need to update my resume. Especially if L'entraineur is taking applications. Ok, so Yvette almost lost points for making me read french, however, she had me panting before her conversation was over at the speed dating event and I was too hooked to care. He's everything you'd dream of in a masked Dominant. If I had to sum him up in one word, I'd say.... suave. He spoke smoothly, he stayed in control, he moved like a leopard and she had no idea what she was in for, yet loved every second of it. It's what a fantasy should be made of.
I loved how, when Jenna first entered the coffee shop she was totally thrown by what she saw. Then when the event started and she had to look up terms in her book, I couldn't help but laugh. I wouldv'e done the same thing. Then when Mr. Suave showed up and said he just liked "talking", of course Jenna was so engrossed in the activity she had no idea what "talking" meant. I just about fell off the couch laughing. It was just too cute. I love any author who has a sense of humor. Thanks for making me laugh so hard.
And so begins their night together. Not just once, but again two nights later. He doesn't push her too far, which I love. It can be rather daunting to a girl when she gets her first taste of BDSM and the guy is all too eager to try out his new lasso and electrodes. No, he gives her simple commands that she has the choice to be able to follow or not to follow. In this day and age though, when women are taught that submitting to a man is wrong and tasteless, she of course becomes frightened. That and the fact that she loses her mask. It's amazing how far we're willing to go when no one knows who we are.
I'm not sure what happens after the end, but whatever it is I'll be hot for these two for a very long time. Thank you Yvette for entertaining me. I had a wonderful evening thanks to you.
