Awakening Chrysalis #1 Free read Ì 0 River Rock Vermont 2011 This is the story of Claire Ryan and Evan Lang Thirty five year old Claire joins a local book club for romance readers in order to get over the breakdown of her 10 year relationship There she meets book shop owner Evan a dominant. Review from Way Too Hot Books It s not what it looks like So being a fan of kinky fuckery novels it is logical that I just had to get my hands on this book as soon as I saw it Not to mention that pretty cover I m wondering where did they bought that stockings It was a dull evening and I needed something to lighten my mood Awakening looked like just the right thing to help me out Now if you are expecting whips and chains St Andrew s crosses ball gags and gang bangs in the style of Cherice Sinclair well This is not that kind of a book What is it than Imagine what would you get if Tammara Webber Annabel Joseph and ELJames would have a child Can you picture it Kink 101 sweet romance brooding but gentle alpha male intelligent main heroine interesting setting of the story and of course HEA Fans of hard core BDSM stories or 90% sex10%storyline novels would probably be disappointed Elene Salinger in Awakening brings us story of two people who look like someone we can pass everyday in our own boring lives and not even think about twice after we see them She deals with real life and emotional aspects of BDSM lifestyle than few steamy spankings or torture Was it for me Or maybe not I gave it three stars didn t I It means that I did enjoy it and that it is not a bad book Awakening has amazing premise and actual plot it s not usual sugar kink erotica that looks like paranormal romance but instead of vampires or werewolves you have this big bad Doms with super powers Perfect for easing into the genre I have nothing against books like that but what I did mind was a bit too much sweetness and few character attributes I can t imagine that someone can be that clueless as Claire or that much exclusive as Evan On the other hand what I seriously adored was bookstore setting I kept wishing all the time to have something like that in my town There will be seuel Claire s best friend Bridget will get her own novel Reflection It s companion novel than seuel I m looking forward to it because I found her much intriguing than Claire

Awakening Chrysalis #1 Free read Ì 0 Man who has never recovered from the sudden death of his submissive wifeAs their relationship develops and they embark on the path of Claire's submission it becomes harder and harder for Evan to keep his emotional distance Claire is open and responsive. An eye opening book for me It s a BDSM full length novel though the BDSM is light In the book Claire learns about the basics of BDSM and the difference between abuse and impact play She talks about a past vanilla relationship where she would push the guy s buttons until he hit her and she didn t stop there Sometimes she would push him until he flat out beat her By the end of the relationship he hated her for who she made him and she hated herself for what she had done uoting the book hereWhile in a vanilla setting I would flat out call that abuse as a submissive who is starting to recognize a pattern in her own life I have to wonder about the implications in the book Was Claire s ex abusive Absolutely Was it her fault Probably a good bit of it was yes especially since she admits to pushing his buttons solely to get him to hurt her and hit her Was it healthy Absolutely not However I see a lot of myself in the character of Claire I notice a pattern of pushing from myself towards the men I love both past and present I ve noticed that in the past I would fight to see if someone could handle me A phrase I use to excuse my behavior I wanted a man who wouldn t let me boss him around someone who wouldn t let me push them past their limits While I didn t realize I was looking for a Dominant at the time I knew that whatever I was getting from those relationships wasn t what I was seeking I certainly had no idea about Impact Play or that it was what I was doing even with unwilling participants who would get just as angry back at me but never gave me what it was I was seeking how could they I didn t even know what I was seekingIn short this book will capture your heart open your eyes and sweep you off your feet And the author is pretty awesome too she even commented on my blog TWICE when she came across my review of her book I ve happily recommended this book to anyone and everyone who asks for great BDSM novels that give you not only what you want but the information you need

Awakening Chrysalis #1 Free read Ì 0 And he wants her badly but refuses to let himself go As Claire falls deeper in love with Evan she realises that he is holding back and decides to end their relationship forcing Evan to confront his own past and his feelings in order to save his new lov. First in The Chrysalis erotic romance with an intense and well directed focus on BDSM The story takes place in River Rock VermontAwakening won the New Writing Competition at the Festival of Romance in 2011 And I thoroughly understand whyMy TakeWOW Excellent This was one of the few really well done BDSM stories I ve read I can tell after I read Sallinger s thank yous that she received excellent and careful advice about the BDSM scene I had thought she was merely merely very well versed in it Evan s concerns that she find the right person Bridget s acceptance and explanations Pointing out the damage that can be done by emotional abuse I ll say it again parents oughta be licensedThe foundation of any relationship is honesty but in BDSM it is even critical becauseSallinger drove me crazy with the build up there is one heck of a lot of foreplay in this for the reader Starting with that she hadn t found enough scalding water to cleanse her soul of her crimes and slowly oh so damned slowly revealing bit by bit the truth of that crime Truly beautifully done And if I thought the build up to the horrifying reveal was slowoh man the romantic build up was even longer For those who don t want the insta loveyou ve come to the right story LOL Never have two people fought so hard to deny their attraction And again beautifully doneI love how these two are so aroused by each other having such a difficult time attempting to relieve their individual arousal on their own the whole wantdon t want around which they dance They have such real world feelings and reactionsSallinger reveals the care reuired by a dominant and never does it make sense than in the romance between Claire and Evan If you think you may be interested in the Ds angle in your own sex life I recommend you read this book as Sallinger puts it so very well as to the concerns you should have It could certainly save some people I just cried about the destructive nature of Charlie and Claire s relationship Sallinger could have gotten a lot tears out of me if she d brought in detail about Charlie and his reactions Hmmm is that a good thing or a bad thingAt times Awakening is a touch clinical but I can easily forgive this for the original touches Sallinger puts to this story Claire sahemreading sessions are certainly reason enough LOL Evan s own fears may be a bit over the top his reactions to Claire certainly are but grief can twist a person up And most sane people want to avoid bringing any such pain into their lives And the abuse angle is a good reminder that abusers can be found anywhereJust re reading my notes brings tears to my own eyes again with the pain of Evan s loss His anger and frustration and grief are just so real and pulls my own sense of loss outTiny streamers stroked him the damp heat reminiscent of small tongues on his flesh Even knowing how it is supposed to turn out I was on pins and needles as to how Sallinger would get around Evan s angry reactions and boorish behavior and the pain it caused Claire I loved that Evan could recognize his behavior An unusual combination of empathy and self enlightenment in a soldierI loved how Sallinger brought Claire into the BDSM world It still cracks me when I think about Evan s method for introducing Claire to the BDSM world Unorthodox and it appealed to my own love for books and I think there are a number of angles which could speak to a lot of readersWhoa that scene in the bookstore when Evan finally cracksphew as I shake my fingers from the heatI love that Claire has a backbone even if she is so uncomfortable at her age with her own body and her needs Her lack of information Her anger Heck Evan s anger and grief over his loss His fear The sense of okayness from Evan being man enough to apologize That everyone has secret shames they want to hide There s a nice undercurrent that I m not sure Sallinger intended in that there s resolution when one faces up to one s issuesTo love and be loved To trust intrinsically that you could be yourself and not be judged or rejectedThe StoryClaire Ryan is finally ready to push past her near isolation and venture into the world A first step which takes her into Bibliophile and the Romance Readers Book Club and leads to a world even greater and eyeopening than she could have expected The CharactersClaire Ryan is a diamond grader and jewelry appraiser who retreated from the world in fear of her abusive disability and has not done anything socially alone in 15 years Chester is her pit bull terrier Charlie is her ex boyfriend Marcus is the brother she hasn t spoken to in ten yearsEvan Lane an ex military man who enjoys classical movies and owns Bibliophile an independent bookstore that stocks unusual selections Marianne iswas his beloved and fiery wifeJean leads the Romance Readers Book Club and seems to have an instinctive knowledge of how far to push Bridget a chemistry professor is already a good friend of Evan s and becomes friends with ClaireThe CoverThe cover is generic with Claire lying down with her shoulder in the foreground and a bent stocking clad leg in the background I wish they d incorporated a book into the coverThe title is what it s about Claire s Awakening AlthoughI do believe Evan woke up as well
