    This was definitively an eye opener for me, yes, it s one thing to read all the beautiful stories that come out of the Erotica genre and all the BDSM lifestyle that I read in fiction, but to read such a real testimony of someone that actually walks through this lifestyle and embraces it as a personal choice for her life is another.The road is long, a self discovery of who we are and what we want, what we feel comfortable with and what we have to sacrifice to achieve the state of freedom that t This was definitively an eye opener for me, yes, it s one thing to read all the beautiful stories that come out of the Erotica genre and all the BDSM lifestyle that I read in fiction, but to read such a real testimony of someone that actually walks through this lifestyle and embraces it as a personal choice for her life is another.The road is long, a self discovery of who we are and what we want, what we feel comfortable with and what we have to sacrifice to achieve the state of freedom that this particular road leads to.This book brings us the experience of one woman towards the bonds of society, through her voice she tells her story Her story of the scars that she bears underneath her skin from the rejection of those around her, to the pleasure of being beaten, the glory of pain and through pain, the road to pleasure.She brings us the loneliness of the waiting in another culture where everything is so fast and opposite to what we are accustomed to, the heat, the freedom of our skin wet under a rainy and blazing sky that can eat you up hole.The wetness of her body and the joy of submitting without boundaries, the darkness, a lonely but delightful darkness, a place where she meets her soul and the love of her life, her master.This book is written in a poetic and beautiful manner, you could almost smell the air, feel the heat, and really, I got so caught in the story that sometimes I had to stop and pull away from the story because it literally sucked me in.It s not common for me to go back to the last page so I could understand better what was on the next one, but here, with the fast paced speech, I wanted to be shure that I understood, that I would follow the next step and not get lost in her feelings.This was a first for me, reading something told in a solo voice and I step up to the last page with a better knowledge of the role of a submissive and what a woman wants and has to endure at the hands of her master.M Holland wrote a fantastic book, one of a kind, so different from what I expected but so much better than so many others out there.It s a book about what pleases us, it s a book about choices and it makes us think and reflect on our wants that so when we take the step forward we know where we re going into the darkness, I hope.It is one of his kind and it is going in my physical shelf of the favorites

    If this book was not a BDSM novel written by a young woman, it would be shelved among the best of contemporary literature It certainly deserves to be there As it is, because of the absurd genre division that still exists in our book world, it is classified as romance.If you are used to reading kinky fantasies, this book may shock you Here is BDSM for real, narrated in a compelling, fast moving first person stream of consciousness that riffs on modernist traditions while driving the action o If this book was not a BDSM novel written by a young woman, it would be shelved among the best of contemporary literature It certainly deserves to be there As it is, because of the absurd genre division that still exists in our book world, it is classified as romance.If you are used to reading kinky fantasies, this book may shock you Here is BDSM for real, narrated in a compelling, fast moving first person stream of consciousness that riffs on modernist traditions while driving the action on through short, poignant , sometimes deliberately jarring sections It s a wild ride and it s worth it.There is plenty of erotic content, and it is of the most adventurous kind But Out of the Shadows is not constructed around a tired old plot with set sex scenes the whole book is a continuous flow of sexual expression, physical, emotional and intellectual It is also a very contemporary and very touching love story told through the medium of the erotic relationship As if that were not enough, it also reflects on the international BDSM community and the history of BDSM as a sexuality from an unusual perspective.Having said all that, Out of the Shadows is beautiful Just as modern Asian megacities, subspace and men s bodies are beautiful And it has a very unexpected ending.Most striking is the fact that Ms Holland writes in a style all of her own The only writer I feel I can compare her to is Chuck Palahniuk and Out of the Shadows is indeed the Fight Club of unconventional love Read it You will go through a once in a lifetime experience, and you will know many things you didn t know before when you come out on the other side About Senta, about BDSM, but mostly about yourself

    Exceptionally well written Beautiful, strangely poetic, and almost lyrical in its prose something I wasn t expecting in the slightest from an erotica novel I ve read a little of the genre here and there, some thingsdramatic than others I wouldn t say I m an expert or well versed by any means But I know enough, and I know a little about BDSM as well I ve also read my fair share of BDSM, again in bits and pieces, here and there It was something I stumbled upon and since it was so blat Exceptionally well written Beautiful, strangely poetic, and almost lyrical in its prose something I wasn t expecting in the slightest from an erotica novel I ve read a little of the genre here and there, some thingsdramatic than others I wouldn t say I m an expert or well versed by any means But I know enough, and I know a little about BDSM as well I ve also read my fair share of BDSM, again in bits and pieces, here and there It was something I stumbled upon and since it was so blatantly different from everything I d known about sex previously, I was intensely curious I think the first well known story I read with any sort of spanking was The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty It was interesting.I m no expert I have very limited knowledge, but in my inexperienced opinion this was a a fantastic novel I think for me this provided the best lens to see the life of someone who practices BDSM, at least the way I had learned of it It was a delicate mix between the pushing of a social agenda, a celebration of an alternative lifestyle, and a love story The formatting was a bit unusual it took me a little bit to adapt and get used to it Much the same way as the story line, actually While there were some toys they used that were not unusual to hear about, there were also numerous mentions of activities and instruments I never would have guessed existed But what I love is that while I was indirectly taught the mechanics of these items, the emphasis wason the emotions between the two lovers and, while emphasis was mostly on the sub, the focus was almost exclusively on the rush of lust and just plain physical desire for both parties The thing that stuck with me quite a bit was the mention of feeling like an outcast I absolutely believe that this is a very real problem, not only with people who don t practice the lifestyle but also those who are involved somehow and yet still mock and ridicule Senta s numerous tellings of this were disheartening, to say the least I can only hope that such a groundbreaking novel as this will help to pave the way foracceptance and open communication.There is no real way to describe this story It just is And it s magnificent and eye opening

    This book is extraordinary, and it touched me As a man.It is not the kind of book that men would ordinarily pick up or download, in this case What a shame.This author, I must say, knows a lot about men Maybe too much Too much for comfort But then, life and sex are not primarily about comfort They are, for me, about truth That s what I look for in writing, and that s why I mostly read non fiction The portrayal of the male lead I don t like the word hero in this context is very real, This book is extraordinary, and it touched me As a man.It is not the kind of book that men would ordinarily pick up or download, in this case What a shame.This author, I must say, knows a lot about men Maybe too much Too much for comfort But then, life and sex are not primarily about comfort They are, for me, about truth That s what I look for in writing, and that s why I mostly read non fiction The portrayal of the male lead I don t like the word hero in this context is very real, very true It made me think about my own life and loves, and it even made me come here and write this.Where are the men s erotica like this Should erotica like this be marketed at both genders, perhaps Personally, I found the cover misleading and off putting for men again, what a shame This book has been compared to Fight Club and I think I understand why It has stark, raw power and it shrinks from nothing.5 stars from me

    I didn t like this book at all which is why I m rating it a 1 star There was nothing in here I could enjoy However, since I m reviewing it for a book review site and they have specific criteria for ratings, I m also posting those below This way, it will be clear how the ratings could be different.Sting Kink Rating Story Review Rating 2 Paddles The realities of BDSM can be harsh Senta finds this to be all too true in her journey of self discovery This story is written in a stream I didn t like this book at all which is why I m rating it a 1 star There was nothing in here I could enjoy However, since I m reviewing it for a book review site and they have specific criteria for ratings, I m also posting those below This way, it will be clear how the ratings could be different.Sting Kink Rating Story Review Rating 2 Paddles The realities of BDSM can be harsh Senta finds this to be all too true in her journey of self discovery This story is written in a stream of conscious prose It s neither poetry nor lyrical It comes across as a young girl writing in her diary The question is, can the reader trust what the girl is writing in her diary or is everything a fabrication of her imagination Senta is a supposed British ex patriate living in Bangkok She meets the man of her dreams This man is a wealthy American living the high life with his wife However, he finds a piece of himself missing This essential piece is his need for BDSM The story is narrated in first person from Senta s point of view Ms Holland took a chance here and wrote not only in first person but also in a telling rather than showing style I am neither a fan of first person narrative nor do I like being talked at with philosophical lectures Based on her style of prose, it appears there is willful breaking of grammatical rules Commas and quotations are violated as well as traditional sentence structure From a story telling perspective, this tale is hard to enjoy For one thing, I ve been an ex pat to a foreign country My experiences as an ex pat are not too different than the character, Senta Even the experiences of Senta from a BDSM exposure isn t that different from mine What is trying is the way the story is written Instead of being treated sensual scenes of BDSM, the reader is forced through a long lecture of BDSM posers versus real BDSM lifestylers While the character states in several instances how she is not judgmental of kinks different from her lifestyle, it falls flat because there is no demonstration of her lack of judgment The constant philosophizing about the BDSM adventure grew tedious If Ms Holland could have presented a fresh look or deep analysis about BDSM, even just a specific act, then this would cause the reader to think about it Instead, the analysis came across shallow through questions presented than points to ponder Senta is no Dagny coming to an epiphany as in Atlas Shrugged Instead, Senta comes acrossof a confused Daisy in the Great Gatsby This book did try to come across as a deeper journey with meaning into an alternative lifestyle through sacrifice and love lost Instead it showcased a foolish woman taken for granted Many times, Senta would try a counter argue about how people felt she was throwing her life away She s argue how her independence and her livelihood is built on a solid foundation Yet the constant insecure thoughts of not seeing her Nai again negates her protests of great love Each time Senta would wave her wand and explain away the failures with some kind of delusional emotion Even the ending of the story is odd as Senta chooses willful ignorance and declares to love foreverShe is devote to someone who is not willing to do the same for her Perhaps it s because I prefer logic over sentiment that this story doesn t work for me at all Or perhaps it s because the I don t need Ms Holland s explanation of BDSM beaten into me with a hammer like effect At times, I couldn t tell if Ms Holland was trying to write a cautionary BDSM non fiction advice book or if it was a lover scorned memoir Either way, it didn t match story blurb My expectations was to read about a journey of self discovery into the BDSM lifestyle accented with love and hot sex scenes Instead, the BDSM scenes were unsatisfactory and the love wasan obsession unfulfilled The basic concepts of D s were missed here Where is the trust and open communication From the start, the D s is hidden and while there is a poking fun of negotiations , there were no real scenes of power exchange The reader was treated to flowery prose of how awesome Senta felt submitting to her Nai It reminds me of vapor ware This reader is not buying it The reader is told the D s is there but in actuality, it s just a concept tossed in without any concrete applications One could argue the BD existed through the scene with chaining Or even that SM was carried out with the whippings and canings From my perspective, the scenes didn t even make sense And it was clear from Senta s point of view, the chaining didn t do anything for her She wasn t aroused nor did see feel any erotic power exchange Why was Senta caned Beats me It was for some punishment that flew by me Perhaps it was the lack of proper sentence structure and paragraphs which caused my mind to miss it.My recommendation for Ms Holland is to drop the lecture tone and cease with the constant mentioning of BDSM It is possible to write a BDSM story without ever using the term BDSM This is accomplished by showing rather than telling I also recommend against using first person There are some authors who can write in first person very well This is because their character is designed to be an everyday person who can be relatable and admired Senta the character is neither relatable nor admirable I feel only pity for her hallucinations This book is a difficult read Perhaps those enjoy streams of consciousness and illicit confessions would enjoy this tale 5 Stings The BDSM sex scenes are memorable and phenomenal.4 Stings The BDSM scenes are done very well.3 Stings The BDSM scenes are mediocre May or may not contain some minor flaws 2 Stings The BDSM were light and just kinky.1 Stings Where was the BDSM scenes Non existent 5 paddles Gripping and un putdownable Has a place on my keeper shelf Great chance of re reading 4 paddles Excellent Highly enjoyable and well written But may not be keepers 3 paddles Average May or may not contain some minor flaws 2 paddles Contains major flaws and needs improvement 1 paddle Not enjoyable and wouldn t recommend.provided by BDSM Book Reviews
