#BookReview: Story of L by Debra Hyde

Synopsis: New Edition, available in both paperback and ebook!

Liv called her hunger the Void, a bottomless pit of sexual desperation. She thought she knew it, and herself. Until a night with Cassandra silenced it. And brought out something in Liv she didn’t think possible: submission.

One taste of that, and Liv wanted more.

But Cassandra isn’t an easy dominant, and her demands aren’t simple. She expects Liv to earn her way into her good graces, too follow her every command and whim. How many hurdles must Liv jump before she can kneel before Cassandra? Before Cassandra will lay claim to her?

Just what will it take to become Cassandra’s “L?” And, if Liv achieves it, will the outcome be all she’s hoped for? Find out in a timeless tale, retold. Find out in Story of L. 

Winner, Lesbian Erotica, 2011 Lambda Literary Awards.

“This is a story with some real depth to it, one that forces us to explore our own ideas of dominance and submission, even as Liv learns about hers.” —Sally Bend, reviewer, Bending the Bookshelf

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This reworked title I had a lot of issues with.  At times I was really enjoying the title and then at others I wasn't.  I finally just had to call it quits around 55% as I was just having so many issues.  The story could be amazing but I think it just needs more editing and reworking.
