Article first published as eBook Review: The Pet Shop by K.D. Grace on Blogcritics.
The Pet Shop is the second novel from K D Grace. Her first, The Initiation of Ms Holly was released to critical acclaim and gained her the title of ‘best-selling author’. Having read this book, I can see it going the same way.
The Pet Shop is the story of workaholic Stella James. She loves her job and works ridiculous hours, which naturally leaves little time for a social life, let alone a sex life. A throwaway comment in the office results in a gift from the big boss that will change her life forever.
Her present, far from being the gift vouchers she expected, is a pet. A human pet. Tino arrives from The Pet Shop complete with a mischievous grin and an erection. To begin with, Stella is completely taken aback and has no idea how to react. But after Tino is left in her care for the weekend, she starts to understand the attraction – both of keeping pets and being one.
Not long afterwards, another male appears in Stella’s life. Reclusive philanthropist Vincent Evanston is powerful, rich and gorgeous. And he just happens to bear a striking resemblance to Tino. A chance encounter in a forest leads Stella to believe that Vincent and Tino are one and the same. But as Tino can’t talk and Vincent won’t, she’s left guessing.
Stella becomes increasingly obsessed with both men and will stop at nothing until she gets the answers she craves. But when she’s got to the bottom of the mystery, will she like what she finds?
The Pet Shop is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I’m not going to give anything away, but let’s just say the plot is incredibly clever and imaginative and you’ll be totally sucked into the world K D Grace has created. The sex is smoking hot, the storyline intriguing, and the whole thing is so brilliantly written that you’ll emerge from the end gasping for breath. This book is a whirlwind of fun and naughtiness perfect for erotica fans.
