The Mistress is a short story that is part of the Sexy as Hell world created by Harlem Dae – also known as the fabulous writing team of Lily Harlem and Natalie Dae. It’s classed as book four, but I’ve only read the first book in the Sexy as Hell trilogy of novels, and it didn’t matter too much. It works perfectly well as a standalone, though I’ll definitely be checking out the other books in the series.
This short story deals with Fifi and Carlos, characters who feature in books #1 and #2 of the trilogy. As Zara, his previous Mistress, now has another slave, Carlos is given to Fifi. No one is really sure how this will work out — least of all Fifi and Carlos, but they’ll give it a try.
It turns out that Fifi has wanted to be Carlos’ Mistress for a long time, and now she is, she’s happy. Or happier, anyway. Because there’s more to the relationship for her than just slave and mistress, but can she bring herself to tell him the truth? Afraid of rejection, Fifi keeps quiet – but she can’t keep her feelings hidden forever.
The Mistress is a very good quick read. I’ve liked all of the characters I’ve met so far in this series, and it’s nice to get to know them all better, find out what makes them tick, and so on. The storyline between these two characters was tense and intriguing. Add that to the super hot sex and you have a read that will definitely get you hot under the collar – boiling, in fact.
This is another sexy, well-written addition to the series and I look forward to checking out the other books. I’d definitely recommend this book to fans of BDSM erotic romance – but be warned, this book, as well as the others in the series, are definitely not for the faint-hearted. Hot stuff.
