Product Description

Product Description

Sara White is outwardly a good girl. She follows the rules, works in a professional office and has a boyfriend who treats her with consideration. However, deep inside her, there’s a craving for pain. A desire to be spanked and whipped, to be submissive and to be controlled.

One day, she walks into the House of Pain, a sex store in Toronto that also does shows in the back where women are whipped and spanked in front of an audience. Transfixed by the idea, she signs up.

Doug Patterson has met Sara at work, but discovers a whole new side of her when he sees her at the House of Pain. He approaches her and suggests Sara become his submissive. Sara is attracted to Doug; but afraid of complication.

Will Sara surrender to Doug, and yield to her desire to be submissive?

Contains BDSM, flogging, anal sex, and much more...

HASH(0x9ba32a20) out of 5 stars Definitely a must read! Jan. 21 2014
By Brenda Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a very interesting and different sort of story. It moves quickly and flows along nicely. The writer's style is brisk and to the point. No flowery words, no pomp and stance. This was fun. The story was different from any other story I had read (I've read thousands now) in that the setting was different, the conditions were different and so were the characters. This is not a stereotypical BDSM storyline where there is a Master and slave or Dom and sub that are formal. This is between a man and a woman discovering why she needs the pain. She wants to explore her desires and she braves up enough to go to a sex shop. The shop itself is different to her (Although the description of her surprise is pretty much all I've experienced) and the owner is conscious of her "peaked interests". He makes an interesting proposition and the story moves into a few twists and definitely interesting turns. I read it from start to finish without putting it down. Sorry guys, dinner was non-existent. I look forward to reading more of Tara Crescent's writing.

HASH(0x9ba32a74) out of 5 stars The House of Pain is a Great S/M read! June 16 2014
By Swheart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sara has desires that her sweet boyfriend Colin is not comfortable with. While at the "toy" store House of Pain. The owner John, offers Sara a chance she can't refuse. A chance to explore her desire for pain. But will Sara find more then she's bargained for at The House of Pain?

Sara is a very likeable character. Like most woman she has been burned and hurt before by unrequited love. She is understandably hesitant to fall in love.

Doug is the Vice President of Marketing Strategy. He is yummy, yummy with a dash of OMG! He is patient yet firm with Sara, and offers her far more then she is willing to give.

The first person POV is a little distracting. There are a lot of I, I, I, I's but I do not think it is so distracting as to make the story unenjoyable!

I would recommend this to anyone who loves pain in romance!

HASH(0x9ba32eac) out of 5 stars Wonderfully written Dec 9 2013
By natalija - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely LOVED the book!
One of the reviewers said she thought it was better than 50 Shades ... For me there was simply no comparison! You won't find any incoherent and illogical story plots here and in the end everything makes sense.
I adored the main characters - you could see right away that they were Adults who actually know what they are doing and why. And even though they like some kink, that doesn't make them strange or abusive/ abused in other aspects of their lives.
So yeah, I definitely recommend this book. You won't be disappointed!

HASH(0x9bba109c) out of 5 stars This will keep you captivated from the first page !!! Jan. 22 2015

What would you do if you found your vanilla sex life just wasn't doing it for you ??? That is the question that Sara asks herself one day when she steps into a very unassuming sex shop. She is both fascinated and taken aback. Could this really be something that she desires ?? When she is approached by the owner to do a workshop that he conducts, at first she is very hesitant. Once she gives it some thought, she decides she is going to try it. This is where she starts her journey into the world of BDSM. That is where Doug finds her, having questions and desires of his
own. He makes her a very interesting....one she is not sure she should accept. But accept she does. Where will this offer take them ??? What does the journey entail ?? Take the journey with them....will it lead to ultimate trust and satisfaction...or will it lead to something else ?? This is an engrossing read that must not be missed.

HASH(0x9bba1048) out of 5 stars Why why do authors do this.... SPOILERS SORRY CANT HELP IT.... Dec 10 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm rating this book a 3.5 stars after finishing reading this book I was left feeling nothing but some major irritation towards Sara. The reason i didn't rate this a 5 is because of the main female character Sara. I don't know why authors feel the need to write books with weak a$$ female characters, especially when she's the one trying to find out if the whole pain and pleasure thing is even for her. She breaks up with her vanilla boyfriend bc he won't spank her to end up with someone who will.

Don't give me wrong this book started off good but towards the end when she ends up with Doug then started being this whiney pathetic scared female character I was over it. I would of liked this book so much more if she had been more open and willing to except what Doug was offering her and be open to exploring it with being weak.

I've read some authors that don't feel the need to write books that have these dramatic break up to make up to live happily ever after, and frankly I find I enjoy those so much more. The book was well written for the most part a few grammatical errors but not enough that made it unbearable. I really wanted to like this book but Sara ruined it for me. Doug though loved him. If Sara's character was written more like Amanda's kick a$$ character this book would of been so much better. You'll let a man spank you but won't go out to dinner bc he might hurt you and you base all this off of 2 boyfriends you've had... Ok NO....
