Troy King’s first foray into femdom erotica, One Bad Hand, is essentially a fairly long vignette that details a couple’s sexual adventures during the two days following a lost poker bet in which the husband is required to submit to his wife’s every whim. As the story plays out the reader learns that John and Rebecca are happily married, sexually adventurous and sometimes dabble in BDSM, trading off the submissive and dominant roles as the mood suites them.
This particular female-dominated episode differs from their past ones in its length and by the introduction of enforced male chastity. Both of those features heighten John’s awareness of the extent of his submissive side, possibly opening him up to further exploring that aspect of his sexuality down the road.
The author does a good job of portraying the couple’s healthy and playful relationship, thankfully mostly by showing rather than telling. In addition to the near-marathon of sexual exploits during the spotlighted time period, there is a great deal of teasing and playful flirtation. Rebecca delights in tormenting her temporarily chaste husband by sending him salacious selfies that show her performing sexually graphic activities in naughty lingerie.
The story briefly follows the transition back to John and Rebecca’s normal sexual relationship, and even includes an epilogue of sorts to tie up loose ends with ancillary characters; but realistically, this book is a vehicle to showcase kinky sex scenes, not unlike a well-made x-rated film. One Bad Hand is highly recommended to readers who enjoy femdom and BDSM with medium intensity and absolutely no angst or manufactured conflict.Powered by Sidelines
