Having read lots of Kay Jaybee's work, including Quick Kink 1 and The Collector, I was interested to see how her fab short story writing skills would translate to a longer piece. The answer? Fabulously.
The Perfect Submissive (available only on the Kindle) is set in an upmarket hotel. Four of the floors are full of ordinary rooms and ordinary customers. But the fifth floor is a different story all together. For on this floor of the Fables Hotel, five specially adapted rooms wait, ready to cater for the kinky requirements of its guests.
The tale follows the story of Jess Sanders, a new booking clerk at the hotel. When she catches the eye of Laura Peters, one of the managers of Fables, her life is destined to change forever. Jess’ meek attitude is the perfect addition to Mrs Peters’ specialist staff on the fifth floor. All it will take is a little education.
We follow Jess’ journey as she goes from unsuspecting clerk to the perfect submissive. And it’s a hell of a trip. She’s put through various trials so Mrs Peters can work out whether she is worthy of being promoted to the fifth floor permanently. If she makes it, she’ll be expected to cater to the exclusive clientelle that pay good money to make use of those mysterious rooms. But is it what she wants? Only one way to find out…
If you’ve read some of Kay’s work before, you’ll probably be expecting a great deal of kink, so you are pre-armed. But The Perfect Submissive is more than a little spanking here and there; it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. If you like your BDSM dark and full of tension, then this is the book for you.
Overall, this was a fab read. Absorbing from beginning to end with lots of delicious twists and turns, it left me wondering when the sequel is coming out!
