My Reviews for Jennifer Labelle’s Leather and Pleasure Series


With Ms. Labelle’s 5th Book in the Leather and Pleasure series having just released, I’ve gathered all my past reviews into one post. Check out this hot series which just keeps getting better!


Leather and Pleasure

Blurb:

Rowan Avery Walker is planning to surprise her husband after ten years of marriage. On their anniversary she decides to enact one of his most desired fantasies, and there's no traditional night out on the town for this couple. She's no stranger to role play, and when it comes to bedroom pleasures she likes to walk on the wild side. Ryder has never loved his wife more, and has a feeling that it'll be a night to remember. Starting off with unique gifts that peak his curiosity, his suspicions are confirmed when they pull up to their favourite members-only club. Where desire lives, fantasies are enacted, and the words Leather and Pleasure take on a whole new meaning. Rowan makes it an anniversary he’ll never forget. (Short story: 5,600 words)

My Review:

Kink, menage, domination...its all there in this hot little story of a birthday gift gone M/F/M at a club designed for just that!

I enjoyed this erotic romp because of it's tone, a bit different in a good way from the usual dom/sub stories in that the female dom was more than willing to happily give these men exactly what they wanted without ever compromising, at least I felt, the loving relationship she had with her husband. The word giving comes to mind, and I enjoyed her personality, her goals, her drive. The drive behind everything remained light, not dark or possessive like it can sometimes get. I like both, but found this story a refreshing change of pace.

If you are looking for a short, erotic read, a one-nighter if you will, LOL, then this book would be a great choice!


When Sparks Ignite, Leather and Pleasure Book 2

Blurb:

Rhys Evans should feel on top. He’s got a booming business, money, and the subs are a dime a dozen in his ever growing, popular fetish club, Leather and Pleasure. So why is it that he feels unfulfilled? There’s something missing in his life, and it isn’t until he meets Eden that he realizes she’s the one he needs to ignite the passion that he lacks to go on. Eden Mayer is tired of living her regular routine, and has been feeling way too lonely lately. So, when her best friend suggests she try out this new club she’s never heard of before, she decides to throw caution to the wind and check it out. What she’s met with is a night she’ll never forget, a new experience she vows to keep, and the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on. Rhys Evans makes it a night she’ll never forget. (Short story: 5,400 words)

My Review:

This is another great, kinky, short story by Jennifer Labelle.! I needed a little time away from the real world, and this story was perfect. A nice light contemporary where a reader can forget themselves and live a dream life, one of fetish clubs and washboard abs :) While you don't have to read Leather and Pleasure, Book 1, to read Book 2, I have to give props for the creative way that Jennifer Labelle tied the two books together. If the reader has read Book 1, in a brief mention the reader gets a little follow up info, more the HEA to the Book 1 HFN/HEA ending. What that doesn't make sense? LOL Well then my recommendation is to read them both!

I actually have a criticism of this story, which I hope everyone will see as the compliment it is supposed to be. - I wanted more ;)

The author's dedication gave a big thank you to her readers for sticking with her, but this reader wants to say that after reading three of her stories, I am now a fan and anxiously awaiting Ms. Labelle's next release.


Sinfully Sexy, Leather and Pleasure Book 3

Blurb:

Sable Dixon and Lila Davis have been lovers since they started working at the ever popular fetish club Leather and Pleasure, but Lila has curiosities and would like to know how Sable feels about having a third join them sometime. She’s a little nervous, but can’t shake this fantasy that she hopes to enact sometime soon. So when Sable accepts and seems eager to have it happen, why is it that she suddenly feels nervous?

Lila is the love of Sable’s life, but when she’s approached with the tempting request of having a threesome, Sable is all for it and quickly invites Parker into the mix. He’s good looking, respectful, sexy as hell, and there’s no one else she’d rather share Lila with. One invitation turns into so much more where fantasies are lived, and one sinfully sexy night has them all coming like they never have before.

My Review:

I am really enjoying reading this series by Jennifer Labelle. I love sexy shorts, and each of these have been wonderful, so different. The author thanked her readers in the dedication for letting her experiment with her writing, but I am here to say that her experiments are paying off. Each story has just gotten better. This one seemed very solid, the writing style, the story line, the dialogue to the situations, all just fit together into one well-written, hot - lets not forget hot - sexual scenario that just flows along the pages.

Mrs. Labelle ménage (f/m/f) evolves in such a way, from phone sex to work to home, interweaving the three characters, that by the time the two women tie up the guy...well I will just leave that there, but it had me squirming! 


Naughty Noel, Leather and Pleasure Book 4

Blurb:

Noel Lewis has had a lot of firsts in her life, but this holiday season she’s making memorable. She’s the star of her first holiday performance at the fetish club she works at: Leather and Pleasure, and finds herself leading her first ménage a quatre for hundreds to see, unleashing her naughty side. Nervous at first, she soon realizes that she’s a natural on stage and aims to please.

Julian, Jake, and Josh love to be dominated, and when they get an offer to accompany the sexy new waitress to perform the holiday show, they all jump at the chance—for different reasons. Jake, and Julian like to play the field, but Josh has secretly admired her since she started working there. So when the chemistry is great between them while performing, he’s thrilled, hoping it will help convince her that they’d be great together.

My Review:

I have to state again in this review how much I'm really enjoying reading this series by Jennifer Labelle. I love sexy shorts, and each of these have been wonderful, so different. It seems Ms. Labelle and I have the same taste in music, because once again, she chose one of my favorite holiday songs to incorporate into the book, "Christmastime" by Smashing Pumpkins. Don't you just love when little things like that make you connect with a book or character right away?

This short little read is at the club, Leather and Pleasure, of course, but this time with a Christmas-themed show. This is a holiday tale where you let go of your inhibitions for old Santa as Noel tames three of his very handsome reindeer. Hmm, whips, three naked men dressed as reindeer, tied up, obeying their female master, yeah, that's a Christmas dream all right! *giggles* Or, imagine getting a special spanking from Santa's elves... So, indulge yourself in a little fantasy, a little fun of the very naughty sort, one evening this holiday with this red hot tale, and imagine yourself Noel ;) 


A Wicked Wager, Leather and Pleasure Book 5

Blurb:

Kayla Evans returns home to open a new business and help out her family. She’s been away at school for too many years, putting her life on hold, and she’s looking forward to living it again. Kayla goes to the popular fetish club, Leather and Pleasure, to meet with her older brother, the club’s owner, and is faced with a sexy-as-hell bouncer who refuses to let her in. With a mutual attraction and some chemistry they both can’t deny, Jake brings out her playful side, and wagers are made.

Jake Collins has worked at the club for years. He’s good friends with several co-workers, including his boss Rhys. So why is it he never knew about Rhys’? Kayla has him turned inside out almost immediately, laying all the cards on the table as she challenges him time and time again. She’s like no other woman he’s ever met and he’s determined to have her.

My Review:

Now this one starts off with a flirty twist right at the beginning which literally and figuratively suck this reader right back into the club of Leather and Pleasure. Kayla and Jake have a quick and fiery chemistry which leads the story line well. Especially by this place in the series when so much of the setting and characters are established for the reader, I like how they keep appearing like old friends. I found seeing a new side of Rhys, owner of Leather and Pleasure, to just add nicely to the story. He has his own surprise to add to the series.  His additions to the main, sexy story placed the characters into a very solid foundation giving this fifth story a very real and established feel to it if you know what I mean. Let me try an analogy to explain further: this story, this far into the series, it is like reading a great new and exciting story in your favorite comfy chair, legs spread wide, foreplay performed by some hot hunk setting your body on fire *giggles and blushes* 

Very highly recommended this story as well as the series. In fact, I think each story has gotten better.  This story so hooked me that I started reading it while cooking dinner (gotta love laptops for that) and read through the meal and after until I was done with the story. Don’t you just love shorts you can finish in one evening?
