Review: Kidnap and Kink (Taboo Wishes #2) by Brynn Paulin

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
Jenna Marks has a secret fantasy, to be kidnapped, tied up and seduced. When she confides her secret to her best friend on a dare, she never imagines her wish might come true.

Rob Colvin, owner of The Dungeon, has had his eye on Jenna for months, but he didn’t think Jenna would be into the things that make him hot. When he overhears her secret, he knows he’s going to be the one to deliver her fantasy—one weekend of her submission to him, her mysterious and masterful lover.
My Thoughts: I picked this book up last year and during a little re-read I was indulging in realized that I'd never reviewed it.  I'm going to chalk it up to my youthful embarrassment at reviewing books with decidedly kinkier subject matter- something I obviously have no problem with now, thankyouverymuch.  Regardless of why I didn't review it then, I'm going to now.  Right now.  Watch me.

Now first things first, don't let the super skinniness of the cover model turn you aside from reading this one.  Although Jenna is on what seems to be a perpetual diet before meeting Rob, he quickly makes sure she understands that he needs her healthy far more than he needs her super slim.  In fact, at one point he tells her that with the things he wants to do to her, she's 20 pounds under his comfort zone.  How can you not totally fall in love with a guy who tells you that you need to eat more to keep up with him?  Maybe that's just me.

Anyway.  This is one of those steamy, sexy, fast reads that pretty much dives straight into the sex.  Have I mentioned that I don't mind that at all?  True story.  Jenna has a kidnap fantasy that she reluctantly reveals to her best friend and when Rob overhears it he decides to give it to her.  It's totally not as creepy as it sounds.  It's all about consent, after all.

I know these books won't be for everyone but they're a sexy way to pass an hour or two.

  1. I have this in my TBR pile, so I'm glad to hear it's good! I didn't like how skinny the model on the cover is - good to know that fits in with the story.

  2. I'm glad that the male character actually tells the heroine to fatten up a bit. Cause that cover is really freaking me out.
