Sex with a mysterious stranger aboard a train leads Rita Holly to an initiation into the exclusive and secretive Mount club. Sophisticated and deviant rituals await Rita, as do the endless intrigues and power struggles deep within the heart of the organization.Rita learns that membership of the Mount Club is not for the sexually repressed. During her initiation, sex with her new lover from the train, Edward, is forbidden but Alex the dance instructor is happy to take his place and Leo the zoo keeper is happy to encourage Rita’s animal instincts. With more and more titillating punishments in store and the club’s sexy head Vivienne intent on her failing, will Holly succeed in her lengthy and lurid initiation?
Many people have a fantasy of having sex in a public place, but how about with a stranger, in the dark, on a train? Well for Rita Holly, it might not have been her fantasy but it was definitely her reality and in that one, highly erotic moment for her, everything changed. For on that life changing train ride, is born The Initiation of Ms. Holly by K.D. Grace, a story about how one women’s desire for a man leads her down a path to a super secret sex society and the passage she must take to be initiated.
The first thing I realized about this book was it is extremely erotic. Like off the charts erotic. Super erotic, if you may and JUST my kind of book. From the moment that Edward and Rita meet on the train the sensually erotic sparks start to fly. Maybe it is because everything is in the dark that heightens the allure of it, maybe it is the way Edward speaks to Rita in that oh so sexy voice, or maybe it is the way he touches her and describes the sensations. In any case, it set the tone for a great story to follow.
“Savor it, roll it around in your mouth. There are places on the tongue that taste only sweet and places that taste only bitter or salt, or sour. Chocolate can have all those flavors. Caress it in your mouth like you are making love to it, and you’ll be amazed at what you taste.”
(and that is just the description of eating a truffle!! Gah!)
We soon find out that Edward is a member of secret society….The Mount. The Mount is an exclusive and age old sexual society and Edward wants her to be initiated because that is the only way they can be together. The majority of the story is Rita going through the motions of initiation. But in no way is this any run of the mill initiation….for each member of The Mount gets to spend time with Rita – in a very sexual way.
I don’t want to go into details of the initiation process because I could not do it justice by retelling it here, but Damn Damn Damn Ms. Grace can write some erotic scenes….from the lap of a Domme to being bound to a motorcycle….you are guaranteed to stay revved up most of this book.
The Initiation of Ms. Holly has an air of mystery to it….which really kept me glued to the pages. If nothing else, Edward is required to wear a mask in front of Rita so she never sees what he looks like. The leader of The Mount council is Vivienne and boy is she a piece of work. At every turn she is sabotaging Rita in some way to try and get her to drop out of her initiation. I have not encountered a villainous woman like this on my pages in sometime. I was extremely impressed with the way Ms. Grace could write an evil woman that I could hate so much and yet it not be over the top. And when she gets her due, it was oh so sweet!
For me, this story had an exciting plot with some twists and turns, a cast of very colorful characters, some angst, a plethora of amazing and erotic sex and lastly a beautiful love story. Rita and Edward went through all kinds of kinky hell to get where they wanted to be….and I loved being on this journey with them! A great first read for me by K.D. Grace. Can not wait to get my hands on the next book in The Mount series, Fulfilling the Contract.
“I’m not sure the whole world could contain my desire for you, Rita Holly.”
