Forbidden Fantasies by Jodie Griffin

After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica and Alex's sex life is, well, a little predictable. It just can't compare with the hot new world Jessica discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Until their fantasies are brought to life during a special weekend at a unique B and B: Bondage and Breakfast..

My Review

The theory of Attraction is a book with three stories told by three different authors. It’s steamy with shorter reads, which gives us a get a great concept of the writer’s style and storyline and also Fragments of The BDSM lifestyle. For anyone who expresses interest in the BDSM genre this is ideal for you.

 A few meanings of the Words described in my review.

D/s ~ the practice of dominance and submission
BDSM ~ an acronym used to describe a variety of kinky activities. BD stands for bondage & discipline. DS stands for dominance and submission and SM stands for sadism and masochism.

These stories where based mainly on BD and DS .

The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden is my least favourite book in this trio set. I did enjoy it but not as much as the others.

In this story we meet Camilla – who has a sexy nerdy neighbour. He certainly is not at all what we expect and gave me the reader a wonderful surprise at his Dominance and smexiness in this story.
It is a short, but - hot read.  The characters and storyline  were both likeable but  found it didn’t keep my interest as much as the others. But none the less is a sweet surprise to not only Camilla but the reader. A rocket scientist with brains and brawn - WOZZA ..

A great short erotica for all.

A Shot in the Dark by Christine d'Abo was the second story and revolved around Paige Long. Paige used to be active in the BDSM scene but she had a very bad experience with a former boyfriend. He didn’t understand the concept of a safe word what so ever.

Carter – the smoking hot fireman soon teaches Paige that the lifestyle can be enjoyed with the right person. He is protective and takes good care of her both during play and also outside. He is active in the lifestyle but is A Dom that can be trusted to not overstep his position or trust.

The author put forth many aspects into the lifestyle to give us a better understanding into what Dom’s in a relationship of trust can give the sub. (Paige and Carter practiced a D/s relationship )

I enjoyed his endearing, dominant character, the chemistry I found volcanic and I really enjoyed these two characters together is this short but erotic tale. Christine touches more on the BDSM lifestyle in this read which I also found informative for those whom have not read a BDSM based novel before.


Forbidden Fantasies by Jodie Griffin is the last  book and I think this might have been my favourite of the three.  Jessica Meyers is married to Maryland State Trooper Alex Meyers. They have had a normal marriage for a long time and Jess has been reading some erotica novels in secret. ((Snickers)

She starts to get curious – and fantasizes about what she wants and what she would like. The books have given her a little insight into something she wants to explore but finds it hard to approach her husband.

It’s not that Alex and Jess don’t have an active sex life – but reading the books she wants to approach him and finds herself in the mood more often. Of course Alex being male notices the difference and takes it to his full advantage not realizing these erotic novels are behind it all.
Bed and Breakfast ;) what a treat indeed.

This is somewhat realistic and true to life, how many woman out there are interested in approaching Kinkier side of sex but find it hard to approach there partners. This is a great story of discovery, of sex rather than just vanilla and something to add a little extra spark and hooo har into a already happy marriage.

This set of stories gives a great introduction into the BDSM lifestyle. It leaves open a choice for  the reader to  make, as to whether this type of Genre is for them.
 All the authors touched base with the lifestyle well, adding heat in the read and a lot of excitement as well.


Rated 4/5
