Review:  Aaron’s Jewel by Cris Anson

Finding a position as corporate legal counsel in one’s middle-50s after being downsized sucks, so Aaron haunts his local dungeon to soothe his frustration. Feeling squeezed by work and family obligations, editor and ghostwriter Julia turns up at the same dungeon to do “research”.

The moment they meet, the Dominant in Aaron recognizes the submissive in Julia.
He peels away the layers of her shyness along with her clothes. He gets her—his Jewel—naked and writhing against the cross and over the spanking bench. And she revels in his dominance and tutelage, discovering her wanton self whether tied to a bed in private or blindfolded and the target of many hands in public.

But real life isn’t all adult fun and games. Not when grown children, parents, careers and aging bodies conspire to challenge their burgeoning relationship.

Inside Scoop: This story includes some ménage fun with M/F/F action!

I absolutely loved this story!  It may have been your basic newbie sub seeking her first taste of BDSM and finding the Dom of her dreams, but there was a specific twist that made this one a total stand out.  Our main characters were over fifty.

Not only were they over fifty, but they had grown children with issues, a parent demanding attention, siblings not respecting boundaries, job issues, and physical ailments that come with being over fifty.  These were real people with “ordinary” lives.   I could identify with all of it.

As I was reading this, I was composing things like, “OMG!  Sex after fifty!  Not only sex, but kinky sex!”  How refreshing.  And dating after fifty.  We don’t see a lot of that unless it is related to a May/December type relationship.  But both principals being over fifty?  Not so much.

Other clubs from popular books may mention the token older couple giving everyone hope that they can live the lifestyle into later years.  But, this is the first story I have read where we have over fifties meeting and falling in love in the lifestyle.  It was interesting having them work around the issue of arthritis or slow recovery time.  Real life issues that happen and aren’t at all romantic.  But, this author made it work.

For those of us over fifty, this is a must read.  It is quick little read but oh so satisfying.  It is inspiring.  There is life after divorce, after the kids grow up, after fifty.  There can be a whole new life out there if you are willing to open up and go for it.

    Thank you, Pansy Petal, for such a great review. I’m glad to help spread the word that people over fifty can (and do) have satisfying sex lives.
