Moving in with Jonathon Gold was a whole new wonderful life. It felt like I’d been plucked from another dimension and dropped into a carnal nirvana, with endless rabbit holes of exploration just waiting for me to tumble down them. And gladly I tumbled – until I wanted more.
I wanted to be Head Girl, to service clients, especially when The Judge made enquiries for a day with a plaything. I thought I was strong enough. I thought I was on top of this newfound promiscuous game, but I was wrong.
Jonathon Gold had demons in his closet. Thing is, Jonathon’s closet turned out to be real, and if I really wanted to nail my man, really wanted to learn the art of the submissive and face The Judge and his perverted kinks, I’d have to live it first, in that sordid little room, and become Jonathon’s toy for a day without a squeak of complaint.
Then I’d face The Judge.
Giving is receiving, so Jonathon tells me.
I’m pretty sure I can do that.
Emma Jane brings bubbly brightness to my world. She’s sexy, gorgeous, naïve and vulnerable, and her enthusiasm for her new life lifts me, really lifts me. I love her, my dirty girl, and I know in my heart it’s a love that will last forever, but right now she’s a rookie, an over-confident rookie.
The best way for rookies to learn is to be thrown in at the deep end, is it not? And it couldn’t get any deeper than The Judge – a man-mountain of depravity.
The last time he visited, he took charge of the closet for a day of filthy debauchery, but the door to that seedy little hole has been locked for almost two years.
Demons await me in that room, and demons either need to be purged or danced with, don’t they?
If Emma wants more, she has to earn it. And earn it she will when I unlock that door.
Emma Jane must learn the art of the true submissive before she can become Head Girl, but Jonathon has demons to struggle with as he takes her down the steamy path to subservient bliss.
James Crow lives in the UK in a redbrick mansion, where the walls are tall, the basements deep, and where secrets aplenty are just waiting to be told. Watch this space.

Title: Six Toy
Author: James Crow
I haven't read the first book of the series, Six, from James Crow before i dove into Six Toy. Maybe i should have since i was floored. It's not a book for everyone, that i'll admit. There were many BDSM aspects that don't call to everyone, the biggest obstacle that we meet is the role play that Johnathon and Emma Jane act out together and then the exhibition that pushes all of Emma's bounderies, limits and comfort zone. Would i have benefitted having had read Six before hand? There's much possibility that yes, because i would have known more about all the Angels, Aunt Fee and how Emma Jane and Johnathon got together. Maybe also more about the relationship that was between Johnathon and Heather, considering that he holds so much emotions that he locks away hoping that no one can notice them. Such resentment, anger, sadness... and loss.
No matter what i missed by not reading the first instalment of the series, i still found myself drawn to these two characters. Sure, some aspects of the exhibition wasn't my cup of tea, but James Crow writes it in such a way that you just can't help but be intrigued, to keep reading to find out if Emma has what it takes to be the true submissive that we all know deep down they (Emma and Johnathon) wants her to be. Needless to say that after reading Six Toy, i was hooked and curious to start over again. To know just who is who, what happened, what could happen and to see just who we'll meet in the next book after the Closet.
