Geoffrey's Rules by Emily Tilton - A young woman explores her hidden hungers in the world of hot BDSM

Geoffrey's Rules by Emily Tilton

Today I'm reviewing Emily Tilton's hot BDSM tale Geoffrey's Rules.  

Along with describing scenes of raw passion and strict punishment, Emily loves to explore the limits, the boundaries, the why and even the why not behind BDSM relationships.  Geoffrey’s Rules is a detailed, highly erotic account of one young woman’s journey from forbidden desires to sometimes guilty fulfillment of her need to be taken in hand by a dominant male.

Chloe is a young college student, a secret spanko devouring erotica alone in her bed, dreaming of finding the perfect man who will fulfill all her submissive fantasies.  Geoffrey is an intelligent, successful businessman who is also a forceful Dom and he makes no secret about it.  When Chloe meets Geoffrey under embarrassing circumstances, she discovers that she is intrigued by his frank assessment of her as someone who needs to be punished for her shameful behavior - and that he's just the man to take on the job. 

From the beginning, Geoffrey makes it clear that strictly following his rules is Chloe's only role in their relationship and he’s more than willing to punish her naughty bottom when she doesn’t.  She finds herself leading a double life as a feisty, outspoken grad student who spends her weekends kneeling naked at the feet of a powerful, sometimes arrogant man. Over time she finds herself relishing her role as submissive, while being torn by her need to be treated as an equal partner in the rest of their life together.   

This is a long book and it delves into Chloe’s underlying thoughts about being in a D/s relationship and what it means to her as a modern woman making her own way in the world.  If you’re looking for light reading that you can skim through for the scenes that get you hot, there are plenty of those.  But if you ever ask yourself why real women enter willingly into D/s relationships and how those relationships can work in the day-to-day world of business and home life, you'll be fascinated by the way the interactions between Chloe and Geoffrey grow and change over time.

Welcome to Kallista's World

My name is Kallista.  Like my legendary ancestor Scherezade, I cannot dance or sing or play an instrument. I have but one talent - I am a weaver of words.

If you seek chronicles of maidenly virtue and innocent romance, go no further.

But if you yearn to be entertained with exotic escapades that will fill your Soul with passion, sensual tales of lustful desires, bold adventures where powerful males clash with impetuous, headstrong women, then join me as we explore the many dimensions of love and romance.

As for my story, I've been married to the love of my life for over 25 years and it just keeps getting better and better. We've been through great times and tough times, through nighttime feedings and teenage rebellions, through richer and poorer, just like in those vows.  Take it from me, richer doesn't always mean happier!

But through it all, we've kept the passion alive in our relationship.  I don't know how other couples do it, but as for me, I tell him stories - very naughty stories. Sometimes ( if I'm lucky!) my naughty fantasies earn me a spanking.  Other times, if the tale is really wicked, we may take it from fantasy to reality.  Those are the stories my husband likes best!

Some of the best scenes in my books are based on real experiences we've had.  But I won't confess all my secrets least not today.

What do I believe? 

I believe you can live happily ever after - most of the time.  Other times, life gets in the way, with all its messy crises.

I believe you can survive any crisis, if you trust in the Universe and look for the good in every person and situation.

I believe that choosing someone to spend your life with who is smart and funny and kind is more important than choosing someone who is rich and attractive.

I believe staying married is the hardest job there is.  Even harder than being a parent.  If you have kids, they'll be gone some day but you'll still be looking at each other over the breakfast table.

I believe that love transcends the boundaries of space and time.  The people you love have been with you before, and they will be with you again.

I believe in Angels.  I've seen them at work in my life.  I even got a phone call from one...but as Scheherezade would say, that's a story for tomorrow.
