Review: My Body-His (Marcello)

My Body-His (Marcello)
My Body-His (Marcello) by Blakely Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Get ready to experience a rollercoaster of emotions as you read MY BODY-HIS (MARCELLO), it was a sexy, thrilling, nerve-racking and a sometimes exasperating experience, but well worth the emotional turmoil.

Don’t even think about reading this second book in the MY BODY TRILOGY until you have read the first book, MY BODY-HIS – although both books are complete and don’t leave you with any major cliffhangers, you will be totally lost without the knowledge of how Jan and Luke’s relationship came to fruition.

For readers who found the elements of book 1 as bordering on abuse since the heroine seemed to be constantly forced into outrageous situations that she did not care to partake in nor did she enjoy, but participated in simply to please her Dom - well, you may be on to something there. MY BODY-HIS (MARCELLO) has a decidedly different tone. The main character, Jane, comes out of her shell (somewhat) by taking a stand when she has a strong aversion to a request and putting her foot down when activities in which she does not want to engage are forced upon her. But let’s be real here… This is a D/s relationship to the extreme, bordering on a Total Power Exchange and that does not change overnight – in the beginning of the book, I thought Luke had miraculously turned into a sane Dom and that just would not have been realistic. Never fear, realism was preserved; warm and loving Luke only lasted for a hot second.

On the eve of their wedding, Jane is introduced to monumentally egotistical Marcello, Luke’s best friend. Marcello makes no qualms about the fact that he intends to possess Jane in all aspects of the word and confidently expresses that he always gets what he wants. Yes, well, it appears that his confidence was not unfounded. At first, Marcello brought a seriously menacing vibe to the scene and I just didn’t know how I would be able to endure the misery he was sure to inflict on poor Jane, but as his character developed, I was intensely attracted to his brand of dominance. Now, back to Luke, in the first installment, I couldn’t figure out if I loved or hated Luke, but as the story progressed in this second novel, Luke’s behavior solidified my extreme dislike for his character.

Jane, Jane, Jane… Oh! How could I possibly count the number of times I just wanted to shake her and slap some sense into that brain of hers? By the end, it appears that she gained some strength and self-worth from the nightmare that is her life. I am confident that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Jane - author Blakely Bennett stated that “[Jane] comes into her own in My Body-Mine.” (View Comment Here) So, there IS hope that Jane will once again feel whole and not be just the shell of a person she has become..

MY BODY-HIS (MARCELLO) is an excellent example of dark erotica at it’s best. If the dark-side calls to you and an emotional BDSM read is what you are craving, then this trilogy will likely be just what the doctor ordered!
