Source: Review copy
Jessie Chambers—“Sunni” to the local BDSM community—needs to grow up. Sunni goes to the local goth/kink store, The Fringe Element, and is immediately embraced by its quirky owner as the newest member of her “little family.” But almost immediately things start to get complicated. Sunni’s ex shows up, claiming he’s found God and that God wants them to get back together. A video of Sunni and Sir Rune doing a scene at the club winds up on television and all kinds of trouble ensues. Sunni must figure out a way to restore her relationships, keep her master from getting deported, take over running the store, and stop everybody else from trying to “save Sunni.”
Sometimes wishes really do come true. A few months ago I listed the book Becoming Sage by Kasi Alexander on my Paperback Dolls wish list. As luck would have it, Ms. Alexander took notice of this and was kind enough to contact Paperback Dolls with a review copy for me. However, Ms. Alexander was more than gracious and generous and also included the follow up novel, Saving Sunni.
Kasi Alexander continues her break down of how the world of BDSM works. We are introduced to new concepts like puppy play and given insight into the world of BDSM shops as Sunni begins her new career at a store called The Fringe.
Saving Sunni is a magnificent addition to the Keyhole series. We learn more about Jessie (Sunni) and why she behaved the way that she did in the first book (Becoming Sage.) This book is a bit darker as it includes problems with the return of Sunni’s abusive ex-husband and religious groups who try to tear down the Keyhole and force Sunni to repent for her “sins.”
This book is a roller-coaster of emotions and keeps the reader turning page after page with anticipation. For readers who are unfamiliar with the world of BDSM, Kasi Alexander once again explains everything in depth through the series of events that unfold in the story. We see some familiar faces from the first book and are introduced to some new ones. Saving Sunni is a must read for fans of the Erotica genre.
If you have an aversion to kink, graphic depictions of sexual acts, and graphic language then I do not recommend this book for you. However, I suggest that readers keep an open mind even if you are not normally interested in this genre, and take a chance with this book. Read outside your comfort zone and you might be surprised at just how much you love this book.
