THE CLUB X-DARE
1 March 2013
Rating: 3 Cups
Love and marriage is not and never will be what Samantha Bell is looking for. She revels in the dominance of bringing men to their knees at the club, seldom caring to bring anyone home.
There is little question in Brian Kylie, a.k.a. Condor’s mind that his decision to hire Samantha is sound. What he does worry about is his own personal feelings for her, and how they may or may not be returned.
Taking the job for X-Dare feels like the right move for Samantha. Getting involved with Condor may not be so much. In Condor’s mind, Samantha is his Aino, and he will not allow her to shut him out. Aino knows firsthand how love can destroy a life, although that is far from her mind when she and Condor face a major tragedy. Now they must decide if their love is strong enough to survive the struggle ahead.
The business of running a BDSM club is an interesting backdrop, especially for a couple who in essence never really plays with each other. I do find this to be a unique way of putting two dominant personalities in a relationship and trying to make it work. There is nothing conventional about Aino and Condor’s lives, which I feel makes them seem less like lovers, more like partners who happen to like sex with each other.
