Sapphic book with BDSM elements (Book Unicorn #8)

Sapphic book with BDSM

For Book Unicorn category #8 of the Sapphic Book Bingo, read a sapphic book that contains elements of BDSM (bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism).

BDSM encompasses an entire spectrum of activities, from blindfolds and light restraint to flogging and more restrictive bondage, etc., so pick whatever you prefer.

 

What is the Book Unicorn?

A quick reminder: The Book Unicorn bingo card is an additional bingo card that you can tackle in addition to the regular bingo card or by itself. The goal is to read one book for each of the 12 squares of the Book Unicorn card. Each square represents a harder-to-find theme.

I’ll post book suggestions for one Book Unicorn category each month.

The Club Revisited by A. L. Brooks

Lesbian erotica sizzles in this return to The Club, where the clients watch and make love to each other in the UK’s sexiest women-only nightclub.

Welcome back to The Club. The rules are the same but the players have changed. Mandy still runs her unique nightclub. These days she’s ready to bring love and passion back into her own life, but finding it? Well, maybe the universe has a sense of humour. Lindsey has come out late in life and is looking for a confidence boost, and a club regular is only too happy to help her out. Caitlin would love to test her limits after being shamed by an ex for her desires. Jody thinks no one will want to be intimate with her again after a tragic accident left her body forever changed. Her best friend Kris has other ideas. Joanna and Suzanne have been together for years. They’re still in love but something’s missing. Maybe The Club can help add some zest to the bedroom? Laura has overcome most of her grief from losing her wife, but wonders if she still has it in her to be intimate with someone.

Whatever they need, they can find. Anonymity, sweetness, sexiness, and unexpected opportunities abound at The Club, as Mandy watches over them all.

This tantalising follow-up to the award-winning The Club can be read as a standalone book.

Searching for the Spark by Kaya LaSalle

Even the toughest armor can be shattered with the right leverage…

LINA

Love is a lie. I’ve had that lesson beaten into me ever since I was a child. Some people might think that’s a tragedy, but not me. Because you know what’s even better than love?

Power.

I clawed my way to the top of the food chain and became the leader of the Beaufort crime syndicate at only twenty years old. Now, nobody crosses me and lives to tell the tale. There’s just one little problem:

You don’t build an empire without making a few enemies.

My past is coming back to haunt me with a vengeance, but I have no intention of going down without a fight. Hiring a K-9 handler for added security was a simple business decision.

But I wasn’t counting on Ayla. Aloof attitude, dark hair, tattoos–exactly my type. She’s far more than just a K-9 handler, and I want to peel back that carefully composed exterior and see what’s underneath.

I know I’m bad for her, but sometimes, being bad feels too good to stop. I just hope we both make it out of this alive.

AYLA

I’ve always had three rules for how I handle my work: Get in. Get the job done. And don’t get invested.

When a mysterious client offered me a fabulous sum of money to come work for them, I jumped at the opportunity. I thought it would be just another job.

Turns out I probably should have asked a few more questions.

Now I’m stuck working for a woman who is equal parts terrifying and gorgeous. My new employer has a reputation for being ruthless, and I’ve seen firsthand what she’s capable of. She crushes hardened criminals beneath the point of her stiletto heels without breaking a sweat.

I should be running away from her as fast as I can.

So why can’t I get her out of my head?
