I can’t rave enough about “Take Me, Break Me” and the way it was written. Bringing together the POV of both the Sub and Master was brilliant. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
Jodie is scraping the barrel trying to stay afloat. An idea arrives that could rescue her finances and bring her together in a kinky way with a man she never gave up on. She’s terrified and fascinated, and tempted as hell.
Capture fantasies rule her eBook. Re-enacting one in a documentary would surely be irresistible viewing to millions of women?
But Jodie and Klaus discover that underneath an ordinary man dark desires may lurk. What will win in the end? The man and lover, or the monster?
Take Me, Break Me was an unbelievable read that had me turning pages and waiting, just waiting to see how everyone was going to come out on the other side. It was intriguing watching both Klaus and Jodie transform into other people.
Jodie is a comedienne and producer of documentaries. She wants to film her fantasy – being kidnapped and held hostage. She’s sure her ex-boyfriend, Klaus, is the right man for the job. She makes the proposal to him and he accepts on specific terms….. “1. No sexual contact. 2. Filming is not allowed in the bathroom area. 3. No nudity. 4. Bondage is allowed. 5. No physical damage to either of us.” Following his rules, the documentary is boring – her sitting in a locked room hand-cuffed. Time to tell Klaus that it’s just not working with his “Rules”.
Klaus is taken aback by Jodie’s idea but is also intrigued by it as well. He sets the “Rules” afraid that something may go to far. He’s an accountant and he does not need the authorities coming after him or some other legal ramification. But, because it’s Jodie’s fantasy, he decides to delve a little deeper into what she is talking about. He’s prepared to keep her hostage but finally agrees that it’s not working with his “Rules”. It’s time to change the game and give Jodie exactly what she asked of him.
The “Rules” change to “There are no Rules” – Jodie is to become his Slave. A true TPE for one month. Fet-life has become his on-line guide and a friend, Moghul, has become his mentor. Now, can either of them survive the fall-out of what is to come? Will Klaus embrace the Sadist that he is? Will Jodie accept the fact that she is a true Submissive?
I became absorbed in “Take Me, Break Me”. I was pulled into the story-line because of the way it was written. Each chapter is dedicated to either Jodie or Klaus with their POV as to how and why everything is happening and what it is doing to them, what their feelings are and figuring out where it will leave them in the end. It was amazing watching Klaus transform from a man to a Dom that is a true Sadist and realizing that this is what his life was missing. To hear the story told from Klaus’ POV was absolutely intriguing – to understand what goes through the Dom’s mind while acting out a scene was a true eye-opener. I have come to the conclusion that there just may be something called “Topspace” just as there is “Subspace”. It was wonderful watching Jodie’s change from a self-sufficient woman to Submissive. Her first caning, her first self-masturbation scene, the first time she went into subspace were so well-written that you felt her pain, her embarrassment, her euphoria.
I can’t rave enough about “Take Me, Break Me” and the way it was written. Bringing together the POV of both the Sub and Master was brilliant. Cari Silverwood made sure that we understood what both Jodie and Klaus were experiencing and she brought them through all their self-doubt and fears with style and grace. An unbelievable book by an unbelievable writer. Congratulations, Ms. Silverwood on helping your readers truly understand the BDSM lifestyle and all emotions that both the Master and Submissive go through.
