Book Description

The Haven: where your body belongs to the management...

From the Back Cover

You've devoured Fifty Shades

Now it's time to lose yourself in the Haven of Obedience

Twenty-something Londoner Natalie Bowen is envied by many, but her personal life is a disaster. Men can't cope with her career success and Natalie thinks she'll never find real happiness.

Then she hears about an exclusive weekend retreat called The Haven, a place that specialises in introducing you to pleasures you could never have imagined. Shocked at the idea, but unable to resist finding out more, Natalie decides it's time to put her fears behind her.

Once at The Haven, Natalie meets the enigmatic and disciplined Simon, a man who is used to getting what he wants. And Natalie may very well have met her match . . .

This is the first book I have read of this type - but it certainly won't be the last. I always shied away from erotic novels before because I like my books to have a story running through them and was under the impression that this kind of book was pure sex.

In this case I was wrong. The story was a good one and even though the sex was highly descriptive it did fit in well with the story. I found the characters to be very 3 dimentional and likeable also. I sat up until the very early hours of the morning to finish this book as I simply couldn't put it down!!

Very erotic, about a woman who wants to learn to be submissive in bed. She goes to a special "hotel" to learn all she needs to know about being submissive. Sexually explicit, erotic, forbidden pleasures, and well described in great detail that takes you straight to the scene in your imagination..... definitely worth reading!

Natalie Bowen is in her twenties and a very successful young lady. The magazine, aimed at single women like herself working high-powered jobs, she started only 18 months ago is a huge success and although she works long hours, her working life is very satisfactory. The same can't be said for her private life though. While Natalie has no problem attracting men with her blond hair and slim well-built body, relationships, while sexually satisfying, never seem to last. When a friend tells her about an exclusive weekend retreat that specialises in teaching people with control issues how to experience unknown pleasures by relinquishing control to others, Natalie is intrigued. While she can't imagine that anybody could know more about how to bring her pleasure than she does herself she is very curious about what such a weekend might bring her. It isn't long before Natalie finds herself on the way to The Haven to start the first of what will be two weekend retreats.
Her tutor over the two weekends is Simon, a handsome man and hard task-master. As soon as he meets Natalie, Simon lets her know that he isn't sure that the retreat will be able to help her. It is quite possible that she's too set in her dominant ways to learn the joys of submission. And Natalie secretly has to admit that he may well be right; submission is not a word that features in her vocabulary, let alone in her life. But, Natalie feels a deep attraction to Simon and is too proud to admit that booking herself into The Haven might have been a mistake. And so the first weekend and Natalie's road of discovery commence. And while it will be a rocky road, it may well turn out to be the way to unknown and unexpected pleasures.

This book has an interesting premise.

Read this book in a day. Was gripped from the start and loved every minute of it, plus the story was along a different line to Fifty shades, which i also enjoyed.

I brought this book after reading Fifty Shades. Its a very good story and I'm glad i finished it however the ending was a little bit of a let down. I feel the writer could have put more compassion in with the characters and have some sort of closure. However apart from that the sex scenes were intense and really well put together its was a very good contender with Fifty shades. so i would recommend all to read if you like Fifty shades.

After I devoured Fifty Shades, I went on the lookout for more books with similar themes and came across Haven of Obedience. I was drawn to it with its simple cover and awesome tagline. So when the publisher said they would send it for review I was over the moon. I started it on Monday and was finished Monday night. However, I'm completely torn with my feelings for the book.

Haven of Obedience is about Natalie, a high power business woman who is used to be very controlling at work and in bed. Which is why she can't seem to make a relationship last. When her friend Jan tells her about a place called The Haven, Natalie is intrigued so she signs on for two weekends. However, when she gets there it isn't exactly what she expects and over her time she experiences pleasure she never thought possible while fighting the urge to control and falling for her tutor.

As I mentioned I am torn with this book. So I will tell you what I loved first. I loved the characters. Natalie is a powerful woman. She knows her own mind. Once she was at The Haven you could tell she was having mixed feelings. She was excited but scared which made her seem more realistic. She had trouble being a sub doing what she was told. Her attraction to Simon was there from the start and it only grew stronger. Simon, now he was an interesting character. He is a tutor and its forbidden for him to get emotionally attached. But he was attracted to Natalie, which made him easy to connect with because who hasn't been attracted to someone who is off limits.

I loved the sex. That's right! This book is packed with kinky steamy sex practically on every page. Marina Anderson doesn't skim over anything and is very detailed in her descriptions of scenes.
