KAILEE REESE SAMUELS has been spinning tales since she can remember. Her books are contemporary fiction with a no-holds-barred attitude. She adores listening to her character’s ramble and putting them into situations that push the boundaries.
Creativity is the way to change.
Juliet by Kailee Reese Samuels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Author: Kailee Reese Samuels
When it comes to Kailee Reese Samuels, i keep reading her stories backwards. Not that I'm complaining - much (*bursts out laughing*). The first book I read from her was Kinky, Sex, Magic and read how Sal went from sub to dominant to Iris. Then, in Tea For Two, i found out how Sal fell in love with a Domme and a sub, starting the fire of how he came to want to become a dominant himself. I fell in love with Kailee Reese Samuels' characters in those books , but when i read Juliet, i finally understood them. This is Iris' and Sal's story - how Iris lost the love of her life and found friendship and love in the arms of Sal and a community she never knew existed until she moved to a small gown to finally meet her late husband's past.
To find a true, honest to goodness true, and realistic BDSM novel is rare - very few authors are able to embody and describe what the lifestyle is about. Too often the hardships, the struggle and even the disappointments are forgotten and the pleasure, pain and scenes are highlighted - yes there is that, but not all the time. Iris' story was heartbreaking. She's so lost without her husband that my heart went out to her. Sal's need to save her in any way possible was tangible in way i couldn't have expected.
This was the story about a woman trying to discover who she really is after a loss she never could have guess would happen. It's the story about a man feeling something he hasn't felt since the loss of a girl that was cruelly taken from him so many years ago. But most of all, Juliet is the story about a community that is always ready to accept your boundaries and limits, et still push you in ways you need and crave, even if you didn't know it.
Kailee Reese Samuels may not always write about happily ever afters, but that's life, it's not always rainbows and puppies, rather, lessons and fulfillment - which is exactly what she offers her readers. For that, and so much more, makes me a fan of her work.
