Review: My Body-His

My Body-His
My Body-His by Blakely Bennett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The dark-side of reality is outrageous and intriguing. MY BODY-HIS is the delicious beginning of a sensational new trilogy by newcomer Blakely Bennett, where passion and obsession, reward and punishment are all on the menu.

I know I have a good book when it evokes powerful emotions as I am reading. I sometimes wonder what is wrong with me when I enjoy books like MY BODY-HIS – the life portrayed in the story is so far from anything I have ever experienced and I am quite certain I don’t care to experience, but the fact of the matter is… I LIKE IT! I don’t want to live it, but I like reading about it.

Jane is an independent woman. She has a great job, lots of friends and a crazy mother…all the more reason to be self-sufficient. Though her life is great on the outside, she is bored with everything, but is not exactly sure what she is looking for. One fateful night at a party with a friend, she encounters a mysterious and handsome stranger who calls to her like no other has before and she cannot resist the allure. His commanding tone and obvious dominance has her knees buckling and compels her to do his bidding from the first moment they meet.

Luke is not just dominant, but he is controlling, almost to the point of total power exchange. He claims to be a wealthy man, but he does not flaunt his wealth, which is somewhat refreshing, but makes me skeptical. Honestly, Luke is one of those heroes you love to hate and I can’t really decide at the moment if I want him or want to kill him. His behavior and dominance enrages me for Jane’s sake – his expectations and requests of her are outrageously over the top…you will just have to read it for yourself because I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but trust me when I say his demands are outside the realm of “normal.” Luke has an extreme aversion to behaving in a manner he expects from others and this was oh-so frustrating as a reader because I really wanted to slap that commanding tone right out of his mouth. Hold on, I am making him sound like a complete jerk – he is not a total jerk, he is very generous with doling out orgasms and THAT is a positive in my book ☺

The extreme emotion I experienced while reading MY BODY-HIS was at times overwhelming, but in a good way. Though MY BODY-HIS can easily be read as a stand-alone, it is the first book of three and I am dying to know how the rest of the story will play out. If you like the dark-side of erotica and are looking for something new to sink your teeth into, then this will be right up your alley. I was captivated from the very beginning and I am confident you will be too!
