Perfect Stranger by KB Alan
“No, sir. Just you. Just your orders. And your touch.”
Author: KB Alan
Dana goes into the BDSM club not quite sure what she needs in order to move forward with her life. When she discovers the club is hosting a charity auction, she makes a desperate plan. If she can secure one of the men being auctioned, maybe she can find the peace that she’s been looking for. A stranger with no expectations—it just might work.
Eric agrees to be part of the club’s annual charity auction because he’s between subs at the moment, and it’s for a good cause. He’s a Dom used to knowing what a sub needs in a scene with him and how best to provide it. But what happens when the thing a sub needs most is for Eric to drop to his knees at her feet?
This is a SHORT story (approximately 13k words)
Thoughts: This is a sexy little short story about a women trying to get back into the BDSM scene after her former Dom dies. She honestly planned to re-enter the scene slowly, but after her eyes lock onto Eric at a charity auction, she can’t help but bid on him! But what is she going to do with him not that she has two hours in his company – and the playroom of her choice to play in?
It’s always a bit iffy with these short stories for me – sometimes they feel incomplete, sometimes rushed, etc. I enjoyed this one – however, it did feel a bit like someone just took out a few chapters of a full length novel and said, “Here you go!” I wanted more – which is a good thing…:) The negative part? It just seemed a bit incomplete to me. I also didn’t feel a complete connection to the characters because of the length. Additionally, considering the characters just met, it felt a bit unrealistic that Dana would confide so much into Eric.
All in all, it was good story and a good read – particularly if you’re looking for a quick read. I would be very interested to see what the author can do with a full-length novel. This was my first book by this author, but I will be looking for more by the author…:)
