Together in Cyn - Jennifer Kacy - Smith Publicity -- Elloras Cave Publishing Inc - Available as a Kindle read

The teaser read like this "She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves." I should have known better. With a plot sucked straight out of the middle of 50 Shades of Gray, and a style to match this book is pure Mummy-Porn all the way through. Smaltzy, gushy, romantic tripe. But some how I felt compelled to read on. The sex scenes aren't original, or too explicit, but sufficiently juicy to get a, err, rise! What weigh it down is the random waddles into self-analysis. The main character, Cynthia, is haunted by rape and bondage issues. So she chronicles them in her diary. Brothers Chris and Jared, lifelong sweetheart/lust material, and super buff to boot, read the diary ad put a plan in place to take her to their special club to help her over come (and cum) her fears of the unknown. Whilst there she is confronted and whipped and almost raped by her former boyfriend. I wont giveaway the ending, but you can guess where this is going. Clearly this is written for strong, intelligent, conservative, deviant women who want a bit of dominance with their cliché romance heroes (Mr. Darcy in leather bondage jodhpurs). However, this is not sexy, or interesting. I found it way too sickly sweet. If you want sexual arousal and a mind f**k that leaves you seriously testing your boundaries then read Anais Nin. Her work will challenge you. This, alas falls short of that standard. Oh well.
