Review: FrankenDom by Robin L. Rotham

A brilliant woman, a couple of mad scientists, and an erotic experiment with shocking results…

Vascular surgeon Dr. Rachel McBride knows she’d be insane to pass up the chance to work on Julian Kilmartin’s cutting-edge research project. The reclusive neurologist has been the object of her submissive daydreams since residency, and time and distance have only strengthened the dark compulsion.

To complicate matters, a former lover who was all too aware of her attraction to Julian is also on the team. Charmingly obnoxious Dr. Colin Carter was Julian’s protégé back in the day, and nothing appears to have changed…or has it? There’s an earnestness to Colin now, an urgency she’s never before seen in him.

When she accepts the offer and travels to Eastern Europe, Rachel discovers that research is only part of her job description—and her total submission is only the beginning of the sexual excesses Julian and Colin will demand from her.

This book has been previously published.

Additionally, FrankenDom contains mad scientists, real dungeons, whips, chains, spanking, a variety of taboo fantasies, mild puppy play, electrical devices in uncomfortable places, humor, and an intimidating ratio of sadists to masochists.

This is one of those books I walked into expecting one thing and got another. It all worked out in the end and I’m pleased that I continued reading after I put the FrankenDom down. It probably took me 40-50 pages to really get into this book. I have to admit in the beginning the first person point of view from a gal who references her inner bad girl and her inner good girl was a little disconcerting. I put the book down and moved onto something else when the arrogant sexy bazillionaire hero pulled out the submissive contract. I have to admit all those five star reviews on goodreads made me pick the back up. I knew there had to be something amazing I just had to find it. I’m glad I moved on with the story, it got intense and oh so good.

Rachel is offered the chance of a lifetime. She is offered a fellowship into a project that if successful will bring so many promising possibilities to her future. The possibilities really are endless and she discovers that her first night at Bangenschloss. She will not only get to use her skills as a very talented doctor while on this project. She has been given the opportunity to explore her every single one of her carnal submissive desires. Rachel get to broaden her horizons with one very mysterious Dom that she has crushed on for a long time and with a man from her past who is definitely more than what she ever saw him as.

I have to admit that this was one kinky read for Vanilla Vanessa. It was a very hot kinky read. I’m still not sure how to define the relationship with Rachel, Colin, and Julian. It is some sexy mix of menage and multiple partner. Do not let that discourage you though. It is just my ignorance on what it is. There is a love story and it gets a little heartbreaking when some of it is revealed. The whole dynamics of what Julian, Rachel, and Colin have is consuming and filled with passion, want and desire, and it is sexy. For readers like me that need the happily ever after rest assured it is there and I love the way it all came together for this trio. This trio gets up to some very intense sexcapades. This is the hottest book I’ve read in quite some time. Ms Rotham had me blushing on several occasions.

I did feel that there was something missing when it came to finality of the medical project. There were a few unanswered questions, perhaps an unfinished piece per se? It could also be something the author plans to explore in another book. That possibility certainly has potential.
