Red Ribbon by Lila Dubois
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Genre: Erotic, BDSM
Length: 155 pages
Running into an old friend isn’t a big deal, unless you’re attending a BDSM mixer. When Liz, a woman who has it all—except a sex life—sees college pal Mark in the parking lot, she brushes off her embarrassment and agrees to go out for coffee to catch up.
Mark assumes Liz is a Domme, but when she reveals her red ribbon—a ribbon identifying her as a sub—he has to have her. He makes her complete a sex checklist that lists every toy, kink, position and taboo he might do to her, on her or with her.
Though desperate for this relationship to work, Liz cannot fully accept her desires or bring herself to submit passively. She wants Mark to master her, to dominate her. Mark is delighted by the way she challenges him, and with one touch, he knows she’s his perfect sexual match.
Now they face their greatest challenge yet, that forbidden territory that lies outside the bedroom… Dating.
Red Ribbon is an intense sexy BDSM story, that had this reviewer craving more. Lila Dubois’s books are hot and sassy, and Red Ribbon is no different. I was taken from scene to scene, without losing the appeal of the plotline.
Mark and Liz are the main characters and as their story develops you, the reader, get a better insight into Liz’s battle within herself. For me Liz’s on again, off again was driving things down for me until I read deeper into the book and upon learning what made her tick it all came together. Finding what you need for your own pleasure can never be easy.
Mark found what he wanted in Liz. Now he has to convince her of it. Mark is a sexy Dom that is seeking more out of his sub. His power as a Dom was evident. Even though you don’t get much info on him, the reader can still connect with him.
With all the intense moments there were a few laughing moments as well. I enjoyed the sensual play between partners. There are no second level characters. Mark and Liz hold the spotlight. Their past, I think, is part of their draw to each other. I did feel like I would like to revisit this couple, is there any chance of that Ms. Dubois?
If you’re looking for a sexy, fun BDSM book, then grab up Red Ribbon by Lila Dubois and discover hidden passions.
