The Cost of Pleasure: The office is full of interesting relationships. Who knows what will happen when the boss wants to discipline the employees?
Sexotherapy: When a minor traffic accident turns into a visit to the spa, the greatest sensual experiences await . . .
This one’s from the vault, one of the earliest ARCs I had ever read. The Cost of Pleasure and Sexotherapy are two short stories in which two women find themselves the unknowing participants in secret pleasure groups, making all of their fantasies and so much more come true.
I liked the first story, The Cost of Pleasure, just a little bit more. I thought the rumors of the company founder and the intrigue of the office worker’s activities made for an interesting concept. With just the slightest touch of BDSM, this story is fun with a narrator who is comfortable in her sexuality, and it was refreshing to read.
Sexotheraphy was also decent, focusing on another company secret, a secret retreat for women. These stories were hot and amusing at the time, but quickly forgettable. They are also now something of an anomaly, as only the french ebook editions appear to still be available.
The Cost of Pleasure: ★★☆☆☆
Trigger Warning: Sex
