Backwater Bondage by Reese Gabriel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Looking for depraved degradation with cruel men and sadistic women? Search no more. Mr. Gabriel is an author who creates some of the loveliest dark themed stories. In this book there are two stories: Bondage Town & Tormented Twins.
In Bondage Town, a mother and daughter share a dirty secret which they don't want the other to know. Cynthia "Sin" made one mistake in high school and it has defined her ever since. She left her town in shame and never returned until now. She's a bondage slut without a master. She's so desperate to submit she will take it from anyone. She is easy pickings. One of the worst men for her to fall prey to is Cal Traces. She can't resist his predatory sexual pull. Worse, Cynthia's daughter, Reyna, is corrupted by Cal's son, Jason.
The plot is uncomplicated. The characters are a bit crazy and extreme. The sex in this story is fantastic. Most of it is non-consensual. For those who enjoy humiliation and degradation, this story will satisfy. Some of the scenes Reyna sets up are just like how I fantasized as a teen. To have an author write it out in a black and white is both startling and reassuring. Starling and reassuring because I know I'm not the only one who daydreams about these nasty naughty thoughts and become aroused. Is this safe BDSM? Definitely not. Are these sexual acts to be tried at home? Probably not. From a spank bank material, it is perfect.
Mr. Gabriel continues this delightful debauchery with the more romantic Tormented Twins tale. Is this a romance story? No. It is an erotic story filled with sexual slavery and an emphasis on SM. This story is also about a multi-generational desire for submission. When Ashley's twin sister Andrea shows up, her life is turned upside. Ashley is betrayed and falls down the BDSM rabbit hole. To find out her mother and grandmother were into the kinky lifestyle is too much for her. Her mind breaks a little.
This story is a bit confusing. Why Ashley and Andrea's parents split up didn't make sense to me. Ignore the plot holes; focus on the sexual training. The slight twist is a trance state Ashley enters and becomes her fantasy self, Tia. It's a bit like dropping acid whilst in the middle of a really good bondage session. Innocent Ashley becomes her dreamscape's pirate slave and thrives under heavy impact play. Her reality and fantasy merge until she isn't sure which way is up. It's a bit bizarre as the story also brings forth Ashley's father who is into pony play. Between the sexual tortures and the kinky pony play, there is enough material to easily earn a spot in my spank-bank.
This set of books is for those who enjoy female subjugation with a surprisingly happily ever after. Each female finds her dark knight to rescue her from a boring vanilla life. Recommended for kinky readers who love dark erotica.
