Wicked Weekend by Gillian Archer

Wicked Weekend (Pleasure Code #1) by Gillian Archer
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Why did Lauren Vaughn introduce her sister to the man she herself was crazy about? Now Lauren is watching the happy couple at their combined bachelor/bachelorette party—while Lauren sits all alone at the bar. Until she spots a hot stranger with the telltale black handkerchief in his pocket: the signal for “seeks no-strings affair with sexy submissive.” Lauren can’t take her eyes off him. So when he comes over, she kicks her inner good girl to the curb and follows Jamie Forman to his room, where he makes her scream with pleasure all night long.

But Jamie is a complicated man. He can’t handle how desperately he wants her in his bed—and his life. It’s up to Lauren to teach him how to make all night last forever.

Lauren finds herself on a ski get away weekend for her sister’s bachelorette party.  She can’t believe she is there or that she actually introduced her crush to her “perfect” sister.  She is self-conscious of herself and has always felt that she is in her sister’s shadow, why wouldn’t he fall for her?  Lauren just wants to get away and have a little fun herself and she knows just the person provide it, the guy with the black handkerchief in his back pocket.

Lauren has been intrigued with the world of BDSM and wants to try it out.  She has done a lot of research on the subject and when she spots Jamie’s black handkerchief she can’t believe her luck.  However, she doesn’t seem to have a high impression of herself and doesn’t think he would want to “play” with her.  I loved that he saw her as beautiful no matter what the outside package looks like.

Jamie is intrigued by Lauren and wants to introduce her to his world.  He finds her sexy and beautiful and thinks her sister is shallow and just mean.  He knows that as her DOM he is going to have to take it slow with Lauren, until she becomes comfortable with the BDSM world. She doesn’t know exactly what she needs but Jamie knows that he is the one that can give her the sexual satisfaction that she has been lacking.

Lauren’s introduction into the BDSM world may have been slow but it was very sexy.  It seemed like he was more concerned about building her trust in him than truly being a DOM to her.  To me it felt like he was holding back some and maybe not being true to his self or nature.  However, that being said, I found the whole episode in the room extremely erotic, especially when he had her blindfolded.  I would love to see them together at the club and see how he truly is as a DOM.

The characters seemed to lack history or connection.  We know that Lauren lacks self-esteem and Jamie seems to help with that but we really don’t know much else about her.  Jamie has commitment issues but it seems that Lauren may be the one to make him re-think is stance on relationships.  Her sister is just mean and nasty and the fiancé’ is a sleaze.  I am glad that Lauren realized that she didn’t lose anything when he chose her sister.

Overall this was a fun read and I give Wicked Weekend 3½ Flaming Hearts.
