Tasting Pleasure by Anarie Brady

There’s more than one kind of pleasure, and Alicia is eager to learn them all.

Finding herself divorced, without a job and in a foreign country, Alicia decides to open her own business as a personal chef specializing in American-style food. Little does she know that her first important client, famed photographer Maverick Devonshire, will become far more than just her employer.

Unable to resist his commanding manner, she follows him into his playroom. Once there, she discovers true empowerment and gains the confidence to become not only a successful businesswoman but also a true submissive. Learning quickly from the consequences administered by Mr. Devonshire and his associates, Alicia finds out that her clients are not the only ones who are Tasting Pleasure.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of F/F intimacy, and ménage or more sex.

Publisher’s Note: It has been expanded, re-edited and was previously published at Totally Bound Publishing by the author under a different pen-name.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a book which will appeal to a very particular reader. It is well written, and has some hot scenes, and an interesting take on the D/s dynamic. However, there is quite a lot to make you uncomfortable about her choices and how she is treated, even if consensually. Nothing physically dangerous, but certainly mind games. It may be that I would understand her better with more background, or introspection – or maybe she is not a very deep thinker and goes with the flow – but some of what she was expected to accept made me surprised to say the least. It has a proper ending, so even though the first of series, you can read it without fear of a cliffhanger.

I am looking forward to there being more reviews for me to get a measure of how other readers reacted to the story. I shall continue to read the series, in an attempt to understand better.

Tasting Pleasure is a good start to the series. The story is well written and the characters are well developed. I found it a little refreshing that it didn’t end in a cliff hanger. I enjoyed the read, but it started a little on the slow side for me. It brought some heat, but I was left a little wanting at times. I look forward to reading the next installments to see how the story continues. I do have to say I think I’ve expanded my cook book. Some the recipes definitely sound like a “Tasting Pleasure.”

I've wanted to be a published writer all my life but have not had the courage, until recently, to actually submit my writings anywhere. I was raised in a very conservative, Catholic family in a very conservative Mid-Western small town (St. Louis is the closest city!). I've always been a bit of a rebel—wanting to forge my own path, state my own opinions. Erotic romances give me an outlet for both.

I also enjoyed writing poetry, but I am finding even more fulfilment in writing erotic stories. What else do I love to do? Cook, eat chocolate, drink wine or Jameson, listen to Celtic music, spend time with my amazing sons and sexy as hell husband, and entertain friends.
