"Looking to buy a slave? Looking to sell one? Come to the place where sex slaves are traded and purchased without fear of the law. We have men, women, and mutants available. There are shops with all the latest toys and devices for your property. Come to the Central Hub, a place of Darkness and Desire."

Bethany is on a mission to the Central Hub. She must save her sister, who is kidnapped by slavers. However, there’s a problem, two actually. One is Clarin, the woman who's going to break her into submission so they can get into the hub. The slave training is making her body hyperaware of the feeling she’s having for Clarin. The second is searching the huge spaceport filled with depraved and delicious masters while trying to pass for a submissive herself.

Can they find Bethany’s sister before she’s sold?


Book Review

I really liked Anna Keraleigh’s “Addicted to Adella” and I was delighted she has another book out. I was also tickled pink that this book has another “Four Five Two”, and lo and behold this cargo ship is another true hero to a couple of gals on the run…eventually. Anna has been a true artiste when it comes to futuristic stories with great space vehicles and amazingly hot women so far. 

Bethany has a sister in trouble. However, Bethany is going to need some serious training to be able to assist Clarin, her professional mercenary, to help find and retrieve her sister. She is dedicated to getting her sister back, but as the title states she has to be “broken” to play her part convincingly. Bethany is a sweet, beautiful young virgin. She will need to convince the ugly underbelly of the slave-trading world that she is a totally submissive piece of chattel. It is hard to believe that everyone won’t fall in love with Bethany…I think I did.

Clarin is a cosmic mercenary with a multi-world reputation and plenty of supportive weaponry up her sleeve, in other parts of her clothing, and even in her hair. She is also adept as using a holographic whip (doesn’t leave scars but hurts like hell). This “breaking” process includes a good deal of brutalizing with that whip, sexual woman handling, and teaching Bethany to accept poking, prodding, and giving of pleasure to anyone her Master tells her to. This job is very important to Clarin as it comes with a very nice payday if successful.

I have not read a great deal of BDSM and things do get rough in this book but not extreme from my perspective. These two women have to convince everyone that Clarin is the Master and Bethany is the submissive slave. Their lives and the rescue of Bethany’s sister depend on their playing their roles perfectly. I like that kind of tension. However, I like what happens to Clarin and Bethany best of all. Ms. Keraleigh is most definitely an author I will continue to follow.
