Pleasure, Pain or Purpose is the story of three best friends.

When everything seems perfect, that’s when a curve ball is likely waiting around the corner. Biljana Stevens’ blissful life is derailed after the sudden death of her cherished David. Now a lonely submissive, she travels the world with a crushed heart.

A contradiction all her life, Jasmin Stallworth loved Barbies; but she also loved baseball with the boys. Now an undercover cop, Jasmine has a penchant for risk: kinky risk. Will she put her career on the line and her life in danger to satisfy her hunger?

Vicky Knox and her husband Andrew were compatible, but she longed for more than a roommate. Why can’t the magic and enthusiasm always so plentiful in the early stages of a relationship, last a lifetime? Married life became mundane. Until rough sex and a password changed everything.

Together the three friends help each other navigate life, loss and love.
Oh, and kinky sex...very kinky sex.

So this book about 3 very different women; that are at a very pivotal time in their lives.

Billie lost her husband in a freak accident while at work. He wasn’t just her husband though, David was her master. After getting a large pay out from the company David worked for, Billie takes off for place she always wanted to visit, but never had the money for, but does all of this travel make her happy?

Vickie is married to Andrew and is not happy. There is a spark missing and their sex life is all but dead. After goading Andrew into a fight, they finally have sex, but something is not right. So Vickie is on a mission and ends up getting into Andrews email to find out that he was emotionally unfaithful. But the Dom in Vickie is disappointed and you end up wondering what will become of their marriage.

Jasmin is a hardworking cop, who was undercover, but now a criminal is interested in her and seems to know absolutely everything about her! But Jasmin has a huge crush on her boss Gladstone, but in order to get information out of Diego, Jasmin has to enter sexual games with him…but what happens when Diego get out of jail?

So I am going to start off by saying that this is a dreaded cliffhanger! But I honestly didn’t mind it so much. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t so heavily invested yet or maybe the multiple main characters, either way, I am eager to read the next installment.

I will also be brutally honest in saying I didn’t like the character Billie at all! I sympathized with her over the loss of her husband, but other than that, I really didn’t care for her character. Where it came to Vickie; I actually sympathized with Andrew more than Vickie. There were times I actually wanted to skip her sections, but thought I would miss out of the book. But everything was different when it comes to Jasmin! I simply LOVED her character, and could actually read a book all about her!

The writing and plot made this book a great read, I totally enjoyed the book, even when it came to the characters I didn’t care for!

I give Pleasure, Pain or Purpose a well-deserved 8 out of 10!

By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.
This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn't mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.
Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don't for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.
Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.
One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise - I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was 'Testing the Submissive'. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent - all of which motivated me to continue writing. 'A Condo with Two Views' is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!
