The author focuses on the story of one specific slave, Alex, a 44 year old man who entered the program purely by choice. Though he had what most would consider a stable life, he always felt something was missing. So he gave up that life to become a sex slave. He was sure that a slave contract was just the thing missing; he had strong urges to be dominated, he longed to be controlled and desperately wanted someone to he could offer complete submission to. Being so eager, he formed an instant connection with his handler, Gavin and just when you thought the book couldn’t get any more torrid, Alex is introduced to Gavin’s partner Sam and the three form a bond that despite the setting and subject matter, you find endearing.
This book was recommended to me by a friend who said it reminded her in some ways of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, which she knew I’d read and wrote about. I can say I somewhat agree because this book did become about masters and slaves essentially falling in love and fighting for a happily ever after. After reading the synopsis, I was left with one question: Once he followed his dream and become a sex slave, would Alex finally feel fulfilled? I won’t give away the ending but I will say I was not at all disappointed. You should check it out for yourself because I bet you won’t be either.
