Soft Limits by Brianna Hale

Frederic d’Estang: performer, professional villain and my youthful crush.

Graduate student Evie Bell spends her days ghostwriting memoirs and her nights playing out her most intimate sexual fantasies by penning fan fiction. When a famous stage actor bursts into her life, she’s drawn to his dark, sensual presence, despite herself.

He calls me chérie, ma princesse, minette.

In Paris, Frederic takes Evie firmly in hand, leading her down a sensual path neither of them could have imagined, and pushing them both dangerously near their limits.

I call him Daddy.

Evie is wary—fearing Frederic is a villain both onstage and off—but again and again, Frederic draws her in. Yet the closer they become, the more Frederic holds back, wanting to protect Evie from his despicable truth. He isn’t the man she believes him to be, and his secret may very well destroy them.

It's been ages since a book shocked me, but Soft Limits had me slack jawed a few times! The age play warning had me wondering if this book was for me, but it was done well enough that while I was shocked, I wasn't appalled, and even got a bit hot under the collar!

Evie is the daughter of Frederic's friend and agent, she's a grad student and a writer.

Frederic's life as a Broadway playwright, singer, and actor has been illustrious and rewarding. Toying with the idea of a biography, Frederic hires the young Evie to write it and invites her to Paris to live with him and interview his friends and coworkers. Evie has crushed on Frederic since she was 13, loving the villains he plays on the stage from her favorite novels.

Evie is a young woman who's naive and childlike, but her needs are dark. Past lovers were unable to fulfill her. She spills her dark desires into her written short stories, but she's never tried them for real. Frederic is a sadist and a dominant. He's drawn to everything about submissive Evie and brings out her innermost longings. He lets her be exactly who she longs to be, no matter how violent or kinky her fantasies. These two really turn a page with sensuality and bring some of the darkest desires to life in each of their encounters. Play acting and also just being themselves, Frederic dresses the part, literally, and Evie plays hers to the extremes. Including thumb sucking and calling Frederic daddy.

Not for the faint of heart, especially if that type of consensual age play bothers you. But I found it written well and intriguingly twisted.

4.5 stars of kink and naughtiness!

I really enjoyed this book – I am not usually into age play, but actually it was really well introduced and was limited to... well you read it and find out!

The underlying plot was really good, and as soon as I reached the end, I could have read it all over again – except it was 3am and really I needed some sleep before the alarm went off! Definitely a page turner, and one to read when not in public! Super hot and definitely touching on the dark and sadistic, but somehow also a softly romantic story.

I will be looking out for more books by Ms. Hale, as this was a really good read.

Brianna Hale couldn’t live without her notebook and an assortment of glitter pens, and when she’s not writing she can usually be found with a book, fighting video game monsters and aliens, or attending the theater. She believes that pink and empowerment aren’t mutually exclusive, and everyday adventures are possible. Brianna lives in London.
