Long time geek, fangirl, mother, and reader. I've got a lot to say, you might not like it all, but it will be honest and hopefully helpful.
This just shifted gears SO abruptly that it feels like a completely different author walked in and started writing, not a very skilled one at that.
How in the fuck do you go from historically accurate slow and careful flirtation to dropping trow and fucking? Not to mention the descent of the clever dialogue and narrative into moist canals and throbbing cocks?
Plus this sudden shift has shot huge holes in Eleanor's credibility as a Domme. She uses enough terminology and is bold enough that I would assume she knows what the fuck edging is, so this choice doesn't make sense and almost feels like amateur hour, aka someone who only has a basic understanding of D/s and possibly none of Fem Dom/male sub play.
I'm not flouncing yet, but this sure put a damper on my enthusiasm.
