Jovina Bustamante loves being a sub, and secretly, she loves nothing more than to submit to women. Her greatest desire is to kneel before Mistress Martie. She gets that wish during a weekend house party where she’s given as a party favor to the beautiful Domme. Jovina squirms under Martie’s expert touch, experiencing joy like she’s never felt before. But her pleasure turns to pain when her friend accuses her of hiding her true sexuality and lying to them. To complicate things more, Martie tells Jovina she’d love to collar her. There’s just one catch: Jovina has to admit to her family and friends that she’s a lesbian. Can the sub come to terms with her sexuality, and her traditional family’s reaction to it, or will she lose it all because of her fears?

It’s party time and what’s a girl to do when she is one of the party favors? Why manipulate the pieces so she gets to play with the Mistress she wants the most of course!

Jovina is a girl on a mission. She wants to be the weekend plaything of the larger than life Domme, Mistress Martie. When her friend Avery shows her a way to make sure this happens she jumps at the chance. The events that follow are an answer to Jovina’s most perfect imaginings, but they also lead her into facing some of her worst fears.

Being at the weekend play party, Jovina is able to let down her hair and be who she is. In her life with her family, she has to conform to society’s ideals. That does not allow her to be the lesbian she knows she is, deep in her heart. Martie, or M, teaches her to embrace her inner self and with each spicy encounter, she comes closer to understanding that no matter what resistance she faces with friends and family, she needs to embrace her true self. At times, this is very painful for her and as a reader, your heart bleeds at the anguish that radiates off the page.

The sexual chemistry between Jovina and Martie is a five alarm fire and the BDSM elements make this story a real page turner. I loved the way the author captured the longings of Jovina’s heart and her conflict about who she is. It was spot on. i really felt everything she was going through, from the orgasmic ecstasy of being at the weekend play party, to the disgust she felt at certain situations with a male dom and her interactions with her family.

If you are looking for an engaging read that will hook you from page one, then you have to check out Party Favor. This is one party you won’t want to miss!
