Lalita Marshall is in desperate need of money. When her best friend tells her about an opportunity that will relieve her of all her financial worries, Lalita feels it just may be too good to be true. Then, she finds out that this so-called opportunity would essentially make her a submissive sex slave to six very powerful and gorgeous men.
When she finally meets Dorian, Zakary, Alec, Kane, Michael and Torryn, she knows she is in big trouble. The six of them not only exude a power that leaves her breathless, but they also leave her body sexually sated and exhausted. The longer Lalita spends with them, the more she knows that this isn’t just a job for her, not when she is starting to fall for each and every one of them.
When I picked up this book to read I was in a ménage mood, and I so fell in the love with this story. For those who have read Kimberly Zant's Snow White and Seven Hunks and hated it, I want to assure them that they will love this book which follows the same type of ménage arrangement but is so much better written. In Breathless: A Story of Dominance and Submission, the heroine is in financial straits not of her own doing and needs to make cash fast to pay off her ex-husband's bills. She decides to follow her friend’s advice when she offers her a business card and explains it's the quickest and safest way to get money quick by being a 'high class, very expensive entertainer.' Swallowing her trepidation, she calls the number on the card and makes an arrangement with six men. They have her complete a series of tests and after she successfully passes them, they agree to meet her. The introductions are by first name only and she knows them only as associates of one another. They're looking for a sex toy. Here is where the two books differ as the relationship is more explored and makes the sex seems more real and plausible. Honestly, Kimberly Zant’s was more of a porn feast as the story revolved around the blackmail of a homemade salacious video and there was another female character involved in the arrangement. In this story we getting seriously love and a BDSM feast without going over the top.
I have to give Jenika Snow's story 4 stars. The concept of the arrangement has been done before so it's nothing new, but the way the arrangement played out and the relationships formed from it made it so much better than Zant's book.
