As a fantasy, it’s great. Every woman loves the idea of a well-groomed gentleman taking her to dinner at a fancy restaurant, only to seduce her afterwards in his wonderful penthouse. But the downside of this fantasy is the theme of the book: BDSM (bondage-domination/submission-masochism) relationships. As a game to play in the privacy of a couple’s bedroom, it’s fine. As a way of life, it’s appalling.
