I was intrigued by the idea of a woman letting her Master loan her out. It’s hard to grasp why she would allow it and so I had to read the story to find out. Annabel Joseph loves to make her readers squirm. These characters aren’t really likable, but they are honest and do grow.
Bettina is a submissive who has no one in her life. She enjoys the objectification and pain the Masters put her through. She feels worthless and her current Master treats her as such. He loans her out to other men in his life and they don’t treat her with any more respect than he does. When one night he orders her to give herself to a stranger, Bettina doesn’t hesitate, even though she know nothing about the man she is allowing to become her Master, even temporarily.
When she approaches the male, he is turned off by what she is offering. While he is a saddest, he doesn’t want his females to be downtroddend with no respect for themselves and safety. So he decided to teacher her the error of her ways by taking her from the club to his hotel, where he uses her and starts her training to realize she isn’t worthless. When he schemes a plan, he decides she isn’t going back to her Master because the loan time isn’t complete.
The story is short and there isn’t a lot of character development. Bettina does grow a learn there is more to what she wants and needs. She’s not dumb…she’s a graduate student. He’s a art dealer with no family himself. He never keeps art for himself, but he finds he might want to keep her.
There are some total mind fucks that are harmless in the end, but really do screw up Bettina. In other ways he teaches her more about herself by actions that seem cruel, but have a purpose.
This isn’t a story for the faint of heart. It is sadistic and there is a total loss of power. He isn’t nice and she isn’t going to cry uncle. I can’t say it was a great story, but I can’t say it was bad either.
