Review: Haven of Obedience by Marina Anderson


This is a book for those who like steamy reads and not a lot of romance…

Natalie is the editor and owner of a magazine targeted to single business women. She doesn’t have much time to invest in relationships, and the very little time she finds here and there, doesn’t do much for her. She’s as bossy in her relationships as she is at work, and apparently the men she dates are not into a woman ordering them around.

Natalie is concerned about her friend Jan. Since her friend went away on a weekend retreat, Natalie has hardly had any contact with her. When they finallHaven of Obediencey connect, Jan lets her in into her little secret and Natalie wants in. What does she have to lose, right?

Natalie never expects to end up at a place where she is forced to lose her inhibitions, and open up her mind to trying out new things, and let others do to her body whatever they want. The whole point of it, is to teach her how to let go of control and in return she’s supposed to enjoy more all the dark pleasures they’re about to teach her.

Then, there is Simon. He happens to be her private tutor, and makes her do things she never once thought about doing. In his short interaction with her, it turns out Natalie is the kind of woman he likes. The problem is that at The Haven, tutors cannot fraternize with their students, so he tries to ignore the attraction. But he’s not the only one feeling that way, Natalie does too.

Overall it was a sexy read with a lot of hot scenes e.g. M/F/M, F/F, you get the idea. The one thing that bothered me is there was never any mention of protection. The men had intercourse with one woman, then the next, in the same scene.

And yes, there is a HEA but not the kind normally found in category romance. Here the HEA are two couples and more sex.

Anyone who likes steamy reads and doesn’t care much for romance would like this book.
