Sexy and not for the faint at heart. Leaves 50 Shades of Grey in the dust, but if you thought that was racy you may be overwhelmed by this. I loved it though.

The Initiations of Ms. Holly May 30 2011
By Loves FAB Romance - Published on
Format: Paperback
Rita Holly is on a train when the power goes out. She's feeling claustrophobic, but lucky for her, Edward, the gentleman who bumps into her in the dark aisle, wants to help her out...a hot kiss to take her mind off things soon leads to mind-blowing sex, on the train, and when they part, she realizes she never even saw his face.

Once she's home, she wants to find him again. Her roommate playfully texts him, pretending to be Rita, and he texts her back that he'd like to see her again. They arrange to meet at The Mount, an exclusive club that is rumored to be a sex club. Rita is excited to be invited, and once there she's overwhelmed by the opulence and sexuality of the place. She soon learns that there are rules, and if she wants to be with Edward, she must follow them. If she is well-behaved, she'll be invited to become a member, at which time she will be able to see Edward's face. In the meantime, she must go through an initiation period with each of the members.

My thoughts:
I'm going to be up front, I did not finish this book. I like reading erotica, but for me there was just too much sex. I like sex in my books - lots of it. But The Initiations of Ms. Holly wore me down. I read 74% of the book before I set it down for good. I think I would have enjoyed this book much more if it had been a collection of short stores instead of one long one.

There was also no real character development - what is the basis of the attraction between the main characters? I know she eventually decides she's doing it as an expose for her magazine, but it doesn't feel true - this reader knows she's doing it for Edward. Why does Vivian, the Mistress of the Mount, hate Rita so much? Why does Edward want Rita so much that he'll endure whatever Vivian dishes out? Halfway through, Rita's mother becomes an issue - she's stalking Rita? It was a bit too much to throw into the plot. I also found the word the author used for her sexy bits - a "pout" - to be distracting. I've never heard that expression; I asked on twitter and checked urban dictionary but couldn't find anything. (I am still curious about where it came from if anyone knows)

The sex in The Initiations of Ms. Holly was very steamy - if you're looking for a very sexy read this might be a good choice; it was just not a good book for me.

Great book, even if you're not into erotica April 14 2011
By Laura Furlong - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book based on a recommendation. Although I don't tend to love erotica, this book was really good. It is so very well written. The plot is great. It would be great even without all the juicy bits (which I think certainly can't be said of all erotica novels). KD Grace is an excellent writer and, although she is great at writing erotica, I'd love to read a non-erotic novel by her, as well!

Very Enjoyable! Dec 25 2010
By Cynthia K Dickey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was my first reading experience with erotica! I was not disappointed at all! K.D. weaves a tale of mystery as she takes you through Miss Holly's experiences. As the plot evolves, the author manages to entwine erotic scenes with modern mythology. The story takes a surprising and entertaining twist toward to the end. This is a very satisfying and enjoyable story!

AMAZING!! June 21 2011
By Nicky - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of erotic books in my time and this one tops them all. Not only does it have the best written love making scenes, but the story line is amazing. You really get into the book after the first chapter. Very well written and keeps you interested till the end. I'm recommending this book to all of my friends.

Delightfully Naughty and Clever! June 22 2011
By Chrissa M - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book starts off with a steamy encounter in the pitch darkness of a stalled tube on the underground and moves surprisingly plausibly into the realm of the super-wealthy, ultra-notorious milieu of the Mount - a naughty club, indeed, wherein there seem few limits to the initiated and many interesting demands of the prospective member. Along the way, Holly is denied the sight of her yearned-for tube partner - which only heightens her desire and determination to be allowed into the club and back into his... Arms.

Set in the present day, I was pleasantly surprised at how seamlessly the use of modern technology was incorporated into what is one of the classic naughty-book tropes (sex club of the rich and infamous). KD Grace did an excellent job of providing just enough familiar touchstones to bring the reader in - and the story and the sex scenes are well - balanced and peculiarly plausible. This is fantasy, to be sure, but Grace made it realistic enough to have me wondering just *what does go on* behind certain facades.

The scenes are never crude, though quite explicit. Refreshing!
