BOOK REVIEW: Welcome to Serpent's Kiss by Sherri Hayes

From Goodreads:

After losing her husband unexpectedly, Katrina Mayer decided to open Serpent’s Kiss. She wanted it to be a place where she and her fellow kinksters could play and socialize. 

Five years after the doors opened, the club is everything she’d hoped it would be. On Friday and Saturday nights, Serpent’s Kiss is filled with men and women who share a similar desire to explore the pleasures BDSM has to offer. The club has continued to grow, and over the years, many of its members have become friends.

The one thing Katrina didn’t expect when she’d decided to open a club was the human drama that came with it. Learning to balance her life as the club mistress has taken some getting used to, but she wouldn’t change a thing.

Genre: BDSM Erotica
Series: Serpent's Kiss
Length: 40 pages
Price on Amazon: $0.99

R.E. Hargrave's Review
* * * *
Liking the premise of the Welcome to Serpent’s Kiss summary, I signed up for an ARC without realizing it would be so short. I’m personally not a fan of the latest trend of .5 style books that are flooding the market and feel like they are a way to make a fast buck. While well-crafted, this first installment is nothing more than a prologue, and could’ve easily waited for the full book instead of being launched as a solo release.

That being said, I am intrigued as to what is going to happen within the walls of Serpent’s Kiss, a BDSM club owned and operated by Katrina Mayer, a Domme. I think I can safely guess that Drew and Beth, characters who are alluded to but we don’t get to meet in this series opener, are going to end up together. What remains to be seen is what trials they’ll have to go through to get there, plus there are hints of several sub-plots which are poised to unfold as the series progresses.

Meant for mature readers due to explicit scenes of a sexual nature, I believe this is a series to watch if you enjoy BDSM themes, especially ones where the Lady wields the power.

*I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review by the author*
