Big Book of Bondage Blog Tour

I'm a little late in joining the blog party, for The Big Book of Bondage. But since the celebration is still going strong, I'd like to chime in and tell you about one of the fabulously kinky tales from Alison Tyler's latest Cleis Press collection.

Kiki DeLovely’s “Just Deserts” delivers all of the breathless, pulse-quickening details that make bondage such a transcendent experience.

What makes this piece come alive for me is how Kiki carefully builds the setting through the eyes of a submissive pastry chef who is attending a summer camp for grownup kinksters. With exquisite attention to detail, the reader is led along with the narrator as she meets her match in a smart, wicked woman. This intuitive top weaves a web of dominance, figuratively with her actions and words, and literally with her web of ropes. Every new knot and twist turns up the heat a little more:

As she pulls through each loop that is then tightened into a knot, I feel the erotic energy behind her patience and deliberate contemplation put into each action. Sadistic love breathed into every knot.

I don’t want to give away any of the action, but “Just Deserts” starts at a slow simmer and quickly boils over with bliss. It’ll make you long for a sexy summer camp adventure of your very own.
