If one call could set you on a trail to the heart of your darkest fantasy, would you make it? Charlotte does, and her bold decision propels her into a world where no desire is too outrageous, decadent or extravagant to be satisfied - for a price.
Her own fantasy life merges with reality when she is hired to work for the shadowy organisation she first encountered as a client. She organises an array of wild set pieces involving banquets, film productions and mansions full of pleasure slaves, as well as thoroughly researching those requests that chime with her own kinky tastes. Two men, one woman, and every sexual fantasy imaginable - these are the ingredients that make up the business of pleasure.

Being a big fan of Justine's previous book, On Demand (Black Lace), I was very excited to get my hands on her latest release, The Business of Pleasure. This, like the author's previous book, isn't a novel. It's a collection of short stories written to a theme.
The main protagonist in the book is Charlotte. Looking for some spice in her life, she signs up to have her deepest, dirtiest fantasy fulfilled by some shadowy agency which specialises in such things. She gets what she wants, and a whole lot more. Turns out the bosses running the company have an interest in her, over and above taking her money. And this is where the real fun begins. Charlotte winds up working for the guys, helping to make other people's fantasies come true.
However, Charlotte is considered to be so much more than an employee and things quickly become deeper and darker than she ever imagined possible. Is Charlotte in over her head, or can she handle the business of pleasure?
Well, what a fab book! I don't want to give too much away, but I definitely think it works as a collection of stories. I'll be honest, I didn't enjoy The Business of Pleasure quite as much as On Demand, but that's purely because some of the themes included in the book aren't to my tastes. But that's not to say they're not to yours. There's lots of sex (naturally), spanking, bondage, swinging and much more.
The writing is superb; it flows wonderfully, the characters are very alive and the dialogue is sparky. I whizzed through the book in a matter of days, it was that interesting and easy to read.
If BDSM and darker themes are your bag, then you should definitely grab yourself a copy of this book. Immediately.
- It's brilliantly written, captivating and naughty.
- Bottom line
- Perfect if you like spanking, BDSM, swinging and similar themes.
