REVIEW: Candelabra by Afton Locke

"Ingenious and delicious hot, short read"

Tandy Davis travels to Loch Enya Castle in Scotland to experience BDSM as a sub in order to deal with being a control freak. As she got lost in the castle, she stumbled into a room which contained the most attractive man she'd met during the entire trip and the possibilities that yawned before her was endless...

Afton Locke pens an unique and delicious way to deal with control issues interspersed with magic and fantasy. Mainly, Tandy likes to take control because she doesn't trust in anyone but herself, yet this is exactly what Bryne needs to resolve his own issues. Yet with each information he reveals about himself as an elemental fire fairy, Tandy struggles more and more with herself. And we can see her conflict and confusion when her mind thinks one thing, but she does another.

Readers should take note that this book mainly contains light BDSM play. I am not into BDSM, hence I wouldn't know if the scenes described here or words used are technically correct or not, but they're hot with sizzling passion between the characters and an ingenious use of candle wax.

Rating: 4 stars

Sounds interesting. Is this good for someone who doesn't know anything about BDSM? Like, a try out first BDSM book?

Afton Locke said...

Thanks for your interest, Carole! Yes, it would be a great book to read for someone new to BDSM. It covers common procedures like consent and use of safe words plus techniques like bondage, blindfolding, and hot wax. But it also reads like a light, fun sexual adventure.

Yes, it is certainly fun! :) And hot! And I don't just mean the candle. ;p
