Kristy's best friend, Sherry, is into the BDSM scene, and on a whim and a bet, Kristy finds herself in the playroom at an exclusive club. A disguised Dom named Master Jay uses sensation play and a piece of silk to help her discover the world of kink. She finds it enjoyable and addictive, but what she doesn't know is that Master Jay is really Jake, a much younger man to whom she's strongly attracted.For the past couple of years, Jake quietly watched Kristy in his gym. He doesn't care that she’s older than him; he wants her. When the virgin BDSM sub he’s hired to train ends up being Kristy, Jake almost falls apart. During the scene they play at the club, he fantasizes about getting her into restraints in his own playroom. But Kristy is shocked when she learns that the two men she desires are one and the same. Can Kristy who’s led a vanilla sex life, and Jake, who knows nothing but kink, find a future together?A note from the author: BDSM is variable; it's not black and white, it's not always deep and dark. It's whatever the participants want it to be, it's individual, and there is no "right" way to do it - as long as it's SSC (safe/sane/consensual). I've done my research. I've been to clubs, private play parties, demonstrations, forums, workshops, conventions, and conferences on the subject of kink/BDSM.Don't let what you think you know about the lifestyle, or what you've read in novels affect your thoughts on the subject. Be open-minded....

    Had to add this under my new account too! It's Flaming HOT!What would you do after you’ve been dumped on your ass by your long-time boyfriend? I would mourn the death of the relationship, call my girls, get all done up (a.k.a hair did, nails did, put on my fuck ‘em dress) and keep on keeping one. Well not Kristy! Kristy actually stays friends with her ex but moves on non-the less to explore things she never imagined, but always sort of harbored deep down somewhere. Kristy’s best friend Sherry is into BDSM and Kristy is very adamant that BDSM in not something she would EVER be into. She researched it online and heard stories from Sherry and she is damn sure that is not what she wants to get into, or is it?After a drunken bet with Sherry one night at the bar to try it, Kristy experiences pleasures and desires she didn’t even know existed. After Kristy’s first “scene” with Master Jay, she was enthralled. Drawn to him like nothing else. If only she knew he was her young Hawt trainer at the gym. This story is captivating! It’s a beginner’s guide intro into the BDSM lifestyle; shit its how I would imagine I would experience it for the first time! Kristy has always lived a very “Vanilla” lifestyle. She was with the same guy Steven for 5 years and didn’t even always “get off” Ahhhh… the things we sacrifice for love. At first I was really apprehensive about Miss Kristy. She was too nice to her ex and I didn’t think she had any fire in her! I was WAAYYY off. This chick embraced her desires and just went for it! I was like well damn if Kristy can do it, I can too shit!!! Anyways, Kristy is the sweet brown eyed girl next door type. Doesn’t really stray from the norm of everyday life. She can’t seem to shake Master Jay out her head after their first encounter and that attraction draws her back to the club searching for him. Which is exactly what I would’ve been doing! Little did she know he was right next door! Which brings me to Master Jay…aka Jake the trainer, the Hot Ass 24 year old gym owner with a banging body! This sexy MF has had his eye on Kristy since she opened her membership 2 years ago. He has dreamed of getting her in his “special” room and rocking that shit till the wheels fall off… You know what I’m sayin? So when he finds out she no longer has a man and she wants to sign up for a personal trainer he almost EXPLODES! Even though he knows she will NEVER get him or his lifestyle he can’t stay away. I mean who would after dreaming of being with her for 2 years and then becoming her trainer. I mean seeing her on the work-out machine with her legs spread does things to a man, especially one with a “kink”. So when she is the newbie at the club that ends up in his room, it’s like a dream come true. He is hooded so Kristy has no idea who he is. Eventually though, being neighbors, and her trainer, he accidently reveals his identity as Master Jay and all hell breaks loose. Ahh shit and this is where the real fun begins. These two are on 2 different spectrums of the sex chain. Kristy explores her curiosities with BDSM and embraces some serious mind blowing experiences and she can’t decide if she wants it all the time. Jake aka Master Jay doesn’t do Vanilla, but he tries for Kristy and realizes some crazy things about himself. The power struggle of desires these two go through is a whirlwind. I was up, down, left, right and tied up and Master Jay was in my head and I felt it when he used the flogger I was like hmmm…. I definitely need to hit he Sex shop and soon!!! This story will answer some serious questions for you about BDSM and have you Googling shit you want to try!! Make no mistake this is HOT and I can’t wait for Jonathan and Roxi’s story. Until then, I give this 4.5 BadAssDirty stars!

    I must have missed something.Starting with the whole break up of longtime boyfriend who she lived with...way too easily dealt with as well as the immediate transition into feelings for new, young, gym trainer.... I'm thinking the writer wanted the characters to seem mature because of their ages, but it was more like they were immature and shallow.The BDSM premise and scenes needed to be way more researched and thought out. I'm guessing because of the FSOG craze at the time this book was written it was thought up to sell but not thought out to be believable or real. So much wrong in so many ways.This book had all kinds of potential for May/December romances, but these characters weren't written to pull even that off well.As for the writing...places were good and others very stilted. It would flow until it wouldn't. The BDSM scenes may have cut it for a vanilla romance with some kinky exploration, but not for a BDSM book. The club didn't even cut it for this to be a book about BDSM romance.Hopefully, in the future the writer will research this a lot better if more romance with this subgenre is going to be the focus. It wasn't until after I had been asked to read this and provided a copy by the author for review that it has been out for several years with a lot of reviews on the positive side. Even without reading those reviews I would hazard a guess that they are written with the whole love of Christian and Anastasia romance still fresh in everyone's minds. Now that that craze has faded somewhat, those reviewers may reconsider their fanfction jump at the BDSM hype so popular during the time this book was published.As I said, this book was provided to me by the author for an honest review.

    This book had so much potential but unfortunately it fell short for me. Kristy gets dumped by her boyfriend and turns to her best friend for advice. The best friend that naturally just became involved in the BDSM lifestyle. Sherry tries to convince Kristy that she would enjoy BDSM but Kristy is dead set against it. To prove that she doesn't enjoy it, Kristy agrees to a scene with one of the club's paid tops. But to her surprise she actually enjoys the scene far more than she ever thought possible.Sounds great right?Kristy makes this big thing about an age difference (15 years) between her and Jake. The author wants you to believe that Jake doesn't have an issue with it and therefore neither should Jake. Normally this would be realistic if Jake was more mature for his age. But in this book it's actually the exact opposite. I couldn't believe how immature Jake just was. Honestly he acted like an immature little girl for half the book. I had to push through just to finish it. Towards the end the only thing that kept me interested was Roxie and Jonathan.

    This is book one of the Silken Edge series starting with Jake and Kristy. I absolutely fell in love with those characters and their relationship. From the beginning of the book I was hooked, and didn’t want to place it down. Kristy and Steven decide their relationship has run its course, so Kristy test the waters in the bdsm lifestyle where she meets Master Jay. This is a new Author to me, and there’s no doubt that I’ll be reading more of her work. (Netgalley)

    The book Silken Edge penned by Laci Paige has just that a silky edge to the mysterious and criminal activities woven so smoothly by a masterful writer.Silken Edge has a fine adult mindset on sexuality and sensuality and depicted with such flare and sizzle. Nothing can compare to the warmth and moisture Ms. Paige ignites through the few hundred pages of Silken Edge. The characters are neatly yet in some instances edgy, the action and resolution of Silken Edge are described in the best tone and vision to keep the reader plastered to the book and relating to the characters personalities and life circumstances.Jake a sexy hunk of masculinity, somewhat gentle spirit is someone I would be delighted to have dancing around in my life bringing confidence and charm. He is perceptive and this intuitiveness makes for a superior trainer. He knows just how far to push. Although his pressure brings a bit of searing painful laced with a smoothness of pleasure.Kristy soon discovers his skills as he becomes an important part of her daily routine and new lifestyle after her break up. The magnetic and pure electrifying chemistry between them can not be ignored by Kristy for very long.Jake has many elements in sensuality and intimacies that Kristy has not fully experienced. Having someone with Jake's skills to guid her through another alternative of self-awareness is breath-taking.I found myself consumed with Silken Edge as Ms. Paige takes me through a loving romantic story, yet steamy erotic river of emotions and realities. Ms. Paige has the perfect balance of human emotion curiosity and eroticism that makes this book a home run. Ms. Paige puts to rest the guilt society has p imposed upon the older woman younger man romance intimate relationship. As one of my best friends and a singer makes it clear that age is nothing but a number. Life is too damn short to resist the irresistible. Silken Edge is a wonderful love story with many of elements to satisfy the hunger that has been shoved to the back of the closet. Silken Edge encourages me to allow my cougar to run naked spirituality and naughtily through the rest of my life.Reviewed by Rhonda for Cocktails and Books

    On the whole, I like this book but I found there were some inconsistencies in how the characters were shaped that made this book a difficult a read. Kristy and Jake are a little unbelievable and difficult to relate to but the story was really good and the flow was nice.

    I really wanted to enjoy this book but in the end it was just OK. Kristy, just dumped by her live-in boyfriend of five years, is encouraged by her best friend to try the BDSM lifestyle. After a dare, Kristy decides to give it a try and is paired with Master Jay, unbeknownst to her in real life is her personal trainer and now landlord. Kristy's no drama and "move on approach" is something I could relate to - nothing really sticks to me BUT ending a five year relationship would still be more difficult to move on from - more than she went through. Jake is sweet and hot - who wouldn't want to have a 25 year old lusting after her. (BTW, Kristy and I are the same age, 39!)Although I liked both hero and heroine, in the end, I couldn't really connect with them or their story. I expected intensity and angst but for me, there were really none. The sex scenes lacked intensity or authenticity.

    When Kristy gets dumped by her boyfriend, who she had lived with, her best friend convinces her to give a BDSM club a try. To her surprise, she likes it a lot. Jake, who owns the gym she goes to, has had a crush on Kristy since he first saw her a couple of years prior. Now that she needs a place to live, he offers her an apartment over the gym, across the hall from him. Jake is 14 years younger than Kristy, which bothers her, but she's attracted to him and is seeing a lot of him between work outs and their close living quarters. Her feelings for Jake get more complicated when she discovers he was the hooded Dom who gave her her first BDSM experience. This is a basic romance novel with mild BDSM, it's predictable and often feels contrived. The characters are likable but spend a lot of time running off because of some perceived disaster. There's nothing new or particularly interesting with the story or characters.

    I liked this book, didn't love it but liked it. Kristy gets dumped by her boyfriend Steven after 5 years for no reason other than he wants to sleep with someone else. Her friend Sherry is convinced she's submissive and persuades her to try out the Bdsm club she's a member of. She notices a connection between herself and Master Jay. She also allows herself to start crushing on the trainer/gym owner Jake whom is 14 years her junior that's she's still not quite comfortable with. All in all, the back and forth between Kristy and Steven and Kristy and Jake is extremely juvenile for someone her age and I feel the author could have wrote those situations better.I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    I enjoyed this book, maybe it was just me but the emotion of the break up in the first 2 chapters had me teary, maybe I could relate. The story was sensational taking you into the world of a Dom and a new Sub trying to work out if this was a world she wanted to be part of. Without giving the storyline away I will say it was smokin' hot and the main characters were extremely likeable and the good thing is that this is the first of a series. I can not wait for the next instalment of The Silken Edge.

    A Cougar Romance With a Sexy Dom!The sexual tension between Kristi and Jake is burning slowly until Kristi’s life is shaken up and she decides to do something different. At a private sex club, she meets Master Jay, a masked, hunky Dom who teaches her the pleasure of submitting to her kinky fantasies. You’ll never guess who Master Jay is in real life! The D/s scenes are scorching hot, and even the ‘vanilla’ sex is titillating. Laci Paige is a talented writer whose love scenes are unforgettable and whose romantic side will leave you with a sweet hitch in your heart.

    Having recently read the immensely popular Fifty Shades Trilogy, I couldn't help but compare the two as I read. This novel is actually quite tame in its portrayal of BDSM in comparison. I personally know nothing about the BDSM world, but I believe readers like me would rather read a story of couples who enjoy vanilla sex with a bit of exploration into sex toys, mild bondage, etc. The story is actually very sweet. Jake does not have a dark past causing him to live this alternative lifestyle. He simply derives pleasure from the experience as a Dominate. He seems to have close family relations, so no dark skeletons in the closet for him. In fact, he has a twin sister who he has had a romantic relationship with his best friend and comes to live with him. Kristy has recently been jilted by her longtime lover and is very vulnerable when she becomes involved with Jake. I found this book highly engaging. I wanted to finish up my ordinary household chores to continue reading. This is an easy, sexy read. It is probably on a high-school reading level so it doesn't have "big words" that most average readers aren't familiar with. I actually hate those books when I'm reading for "pure pleasure" or "mindless reading" as I am compelled to look up definitions for each word or I can't continue reading, so this book allows one to freely enjoy the book.I am rating this book 4 stars and highly recommend it to those who enjoy a tantalizing fictional romance. Obviously, there are sexual scenes and there is some language that might offend some readers.I received an ebook of this novel from netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    This was a nice change about an older woman whose life doesn’t seem to be going as she planned. After a split from her boyfriend and being a certain age she finds herself having to start again. She has secretly got the hots for a younger man who happens to run the gym she attends but believes it will never work because of the age difference. Her best friend Sherry is into the bdsm lifestyle with her husband and tries to encourage Kristy to try it, but Kristy believes that if you enjoy kink it makes you a freak, however after a bet with Sherry she gives it a try and finds herself loving the experience. Follow her journey through the divine world of freedom in submission and finding herself and allowing herself to love and be loved. I NEED the rest of the series now, this book was jaw droppingly awesome.

    The B Stands for Bubble GumI had hope for this story. I thought finally a heroine that is a mature woman. Kristy was 40. But then Jake had to be 25 and that is the age of maturity Kristy was. It is unbelievable that a 25 year old male is mature. He dresses up and plays a character for his job. Just like Batman. Their BDSM scenes were like listening to Taylor Swift's bubble gum pop music. There was no rhyme or reason to them. Just let's do a scene. Then there was the ending. It was like the author just got tired of writing and stopped. Perhaps she finally saw this story was going no where. I am just glad it was free.

    After her relationship with Steve has been ended by him, Kristy finds a new home by renting an apartment from Jake, her sexy Gym trainer - but he is way too young for her! Deciding to change her life and attitude, she decides to give her best friend Shelby's BDSM club a try, and is quite impressed by Master Jay who introduces her to the unknown.If you like, or don't mind, to read about BDSM, where the focus is not on wild "kinky" scenes, but on the protagonists and their development, their problems and struggles, then this is the book for you. I was pleasantly surprised to find characters with depth, realistic people and situations, and could not stop until I know how the story ended.Add to that a very good fluent narration style, and hardly any spelling errors, and you cannot go wrong.Now I have to get the sequel to this!

    The book starts with Kristy's breakup after a long-term relationship, which seems to get over too fast. And after her best friend insisting she gives in into trying the BDSM lifestyle and she falls for Master Jay and long story short they have a happily ever after end.The book was ok and its pace was ok. Moving forward into the action of the story. If you are into BDSM lifestyle you will enjoy the book, if not then I'm not sure if you will be able to relate with the love scenes.However the author sets up pretty cool the world and characters and if you have enjoyed the first book, you will be looking forward to the next one.

    This book was so darn sexy. I loved this book, every part of it. The insane attraction between Jake and Kristy made this book such an intense read. The BDSM scenes in this book were so well written it draws the reader into every page. The relationship they both want might not be one that they can have together, but will they realize they can work every thing out and be together? Thank you NetGalley and Laci Paige for allowing me to read and write this honest review.

    This book grabs you from the start - no messing around. Kristy has ideas about what's right and what's acceptable in society and this (for me) is about her journey of letting go of those and taking what she wants. Very enjoyable read and can be read as a standalone, if you wanted.

    Started off well but quickly went downhill. The ex-boyfriend doesn't seem to know which way his personality is meant to go, and getting into BDSM on a bet IS NOT the way to get into it. Although there's no abusive play still not a great representation of the lifestyle.

    I received a e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book was so good I ended up reading it in one night! It was sensual, hot and dramatic, a perfect mix for this genre. Granted, there is not much depth in the story itself, but the main characters are more layered and complex than expected for an erotic novel. I liked how they all had to go out of their comfort zone and test their limits. No one ever said love was an easy ride. I will definitely read the rest of the books in this series!

    **I voluntarily received an Advance Reader Copy of this book**This is story is a real walk on the wild side. At almost 40 years old this heroin starts to explore a more forbidden side of her sexuality. The decision does not come easily. In fact it took years of nagging from her best friend to give it a try.I enjoyed this story. The sex scenes were very hot. It was inspirational May December romance.

    This wasn't a bad read at all!! Kristy and her long time boyfriend break up. She has some age issues bc she's a bit older than the hot guy at her gym that she's been eyeing. Her friend wants her to visit the BDSM club with her bc she thinks that Kristy needs a bit of kink in her life. So, kink is introduced and it turns out she likes it.It was nice going on this journey of awakening with Kristy and Jake. And the journey isn't just Kristy's. Jake goes through a journey as well.
