Ashley's "Honey" series opener sees seasoned Dominatrix and Bee's Honey Club member Amélie Strand growing bored with the scene and realizing that she wants to play with a permanent partner for the first time in her life. As if on cue, in walks broad, buff alpha-sub Olivier Hawkes. Olly shores up excitement and a deeper feeling Amélie hasn't had in a long while. Although his submissive demeanor is unpracticed, his cheeky nature makes him difficult to break, much to Amélie's delight. Little does she know that Olly's membership to the elite club started as a con, a shortcut into a world that had long piqued his interest. He was unprepared for stunning, commanding Amélie to enter his life, nor for the effect she has on his libido. But will their connection survive complications when it's taken beyond the walls of Bee's Honey?
VERDICT Though the slightly lengthy prose occasionally complicates the raunchy action, overall, this latest from Ashley (Motorcycle Man) is an enjoyable title for femdom fans.
