Living day-to-day as a switchboard operator, Evelyn Gardner loathes the sexual cravings that cost her the home and family she’d always dreamed of. When she meets Jimmy Doyle Walker, the sexy first baseman for the Washington Diplomats, at a church revival meeting, he challenges her beliefs and her expectations. Determinedly, he seduces her through erotic letters, sensual gifts, and sexual play, until she dares dream she can have satisfaction and respectability.
Too bad her father, the preacher, seems set on ruining not only their reputations but also their lives.
Evelyn and Jimmy Doyle are sensual and electric in Roz Lee’s, Suspended Game.
Ms. Lee’s BDSM-driven story brought need and desire to the forefront of an era when propriety was the norm and women subdued.
Ms. Lee’s portrayal of Evelyn gave credence to the fact that women were repressed creatures and prisoners of their desires circa the Great Depression.
Evelyn’s transformation was beautifully written~ a caterpillar morphing into a beautiful butterfly, expanding her wings and taking flight.
The inception of BDSM into a suppressed era and the conception of the terminology and subtle nuances were paramount to the story and the level of trust Evelyn felt wrapped in Jimmy Doyle’s arms. Jimmy Doyle was a vividly-large personality~ a man who knew his inner cravings and the type of woman he wanted. Together, the slow release of Evelyn’s inhibitions coupled with Jimmy Doyle’s patience and love, amazed and enhanced the story.
Roz Lee has made it to the top of my BDSM must read list. An erotic tale with captivating characterizations.
