Joining the Mile High Club seemed like a fun thing to do, but Yolanda Latimer has more than a scandal to face when she falls to earth. The only person who can help her is the man who witnessed her tryst, and somehow turned her on without touching her.

Introducing Yolanda to the wilder side of sex is sheer delight for mentor Lawrence Cavendish, but his gorgeous pupil gets far deeper under his skin than he planned for, and soon he’s involved in her real life dilemma. His sex life is all he allows to remain from his previous existence in a dark and dangerous world, where every day could have been his last. Yolanda unwittingly pulls him back in, threatening a life he loves and devastating public exposure as a fraud. Even she won’t want him when she finds out his true nature.

Unless they find the man who is blackmailing Yolanda, she’s washed up, her precious job and her reputation gone forever. Only Lawrence has the contacts that can flush her blackmailer from the seamy undergrowth of the criminal underworld, and to do it he has to risk everything he’s won over the years. Even her love.

Yolanda was certainly stripped bare in this story physically, mentally, and emotionally. Yolanda isn’t the only one whos layers are removed in this story. Lawrence, while usually the one remove layers, quickly realizes that Yolanda may be the only person that can strip him while he is doing the same to her.

One part of the story that I found enjoyable was the sexual activity. Lawrence is really helping Yolanda to understand more about herself through sexuality. I think this helps the character in more ways than just how to have a great orgasm. It teaches her how to relieve stress and understand more about her body and mental state. This teaching or self discovery does involve some interesting scenes including a sexual awakening at a club while watching an ménage. The scene does involve anal play, but is done in a tasteful way which leaves everyone including the main character satisfied.

The conflict in this story added an extra element of excitement and entertainment. It added a sympathy element regarding Yolanda as well as allowed Lawrence to be the knight and shinning armor Yolanda needed. It also allowed the author to introduce some interesting sub-characters such as Jim Yolanda’s IT guy and Mick, someone Lawrence thought he left in his past.

This story ignited a love for erotic stories that I thought I had lost, and will always have a spot in my heart for that fact alone. So if you are someone looking to get introduced to little BDSM or has had a long appreciate for it you will enjoy reading this story.
