Book Description

11 Oct 2012

I have always been drawn to hotels. I love their anonymity. The hotel does not care what you do, or with whom.

The Hotel Luxe Noir is a haven for sensual pleasures. But as young receptionist Sophie Martin witnesses the hedonistic liaisons of the staff and guests can she also learn to master her own desires.?

On Demand is an ebook sensation now back in print with two bonus short-stories.

Product Description

Review

"If you are looking for strings-free erotica, and not for deep romance, On Demand is just the book... Indulgent and titillating, On Demand is like a tonic for your imagination. The writing is witty, the personal and sexual quirks of the characters entertaining." (Lara Kairos)

"Did I mention that every chapter is highly charged with eroticism, BDSM, D/s, and almost every fantasy you can imagine? If you don't get turned on by at least one of these fantasies, there is no hope for you." (Manic Readers)

Book Description

Steamy encounters of every flavour are on offer to guests at the Hotel Luxe Royale

5.0 out of 5 stars A fruity, frisky fun fest! 2 Dec 2009
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Previous to reading On Demand, I'd read Justine's stories in anthologies and always enjoyed them. So I was pleased to get my hands on a whole book of her writing! Rather than being a novel, though, On Demand is an anthology of short stories, all written to a theme. And the theme in this steamy read is the setting - a hotel.

What makes the book so fabulous is the fact that it isn't just a book of stories based in a hotel; it's also centred around the same characters. This means, of course, that you get to know and care about the characters and what happens to them. You'll feel yourself getting thrilled when they get hot under the collar, and getting hot somewhere else when they're getting laid! And boy, do they get laid!

With a theme like the one chosen for this book, it would have been very easy to get stuck in a rut and for all of the stories to have been formulaic. However, Ms. Elyot has skilfully written the stories in different places and scenarios, so every tale is fresh and fun, as well as damn sexy. The tone is light, and there's definitely more physicality going on than emotional attachment, but that's what makes this book what it is. It's a fruity, frisky fun fest that has something for most tastes, and will get you horny in no time!

As well as being fabulous, On Demand is also the end of an era. For it's the last book to be published by now defunct erotica publisher Black Lace. R.I.P, you will be missed. So grab yourself a piece of history and get a bonking good read at the same time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Like It 7 Dec 2009
By Viper
Format:Paperback
I've read many, many Black Lace books in my time. Books about bad girls and good girls and weird girls, books set in ancient times and Victorian times and totally non-existent times.

But seriously, I've never read a Black Lace book like this. It's both a short story collection and a novel, of sorts- we're given enough to care deeply about the main heroine, but she also spends a lot of time dissecting (delightfully) the sex lives and kinks and tricks of the various visitors to the Hotel, so you can dip into it at various points, or gobble it up all at once.

I'm afraid I had to gobble it up, because each teasing vignette left me wanting more, while frantic to find out about Sophie and her continuing storyline. She gives the book what it needs- a sense of exploration, of a real heroine trying to understand each new naughty thing that the Hotel's guests are indulging in.

Which makes her getting sucked in all the sweeter, of course.

But I don't think saying so really covers what Ms. Elyot has achieved, here. She's used an old skool Black Lace setting, but re-invigorated it and re-evaluated it and made it completely real. She's delivered a book that is absolutely chock-full of wit and humour, without losing the steaming heat. She's written a perfectly erotic book, and yet somehow allowed in romantic elements that don't lessen the impact of that eroticism.

And I want to bonk all of its heroes. Which when it comes down to brass tacks, is the highest accolade I can give. Why aren't you reading this book, already?

5.0 out of 5 stars On demand, essential naughtiness 19 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
Justine Elyot has had several tempting short stories in black lace anthologies but at last a full book just for her. The short stories are woven together by a witty and intelligent protagonist in Sophie and each is filled with the fabulously humorous yet wonderfully sexy style from Justine's previous work. The stories are nicely varied so will appeal to a range of readers and kept my interest throughout.

overall I'd recommend this to any reader of erotica

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of On Demand 30 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
On Demand is the first full-length novel by Justine Elyot. The novel's protagonist is the young and adventurous woman, Sophie, who one dreary day finds herself at a crossroad in life and chooses the less conventional path. To put it simply, she makes a deal with herself to accept any and all sexual possibilities that should happen to fall into her lap. Through her funny and laidback voice we hear of not only her experiences and explorations, but are given the proverbial tour of the entire hotel, its guests and employees. Through Sophie we hear of the housewife with a forbidden and long-denied fantasy that suddenly re-surfaces, stronger than ever and in desperate need of sating, we hear of the gym instructor who's always been too cocky for his own good being taught manners by a pair of strong-minded English celebrities, we hear of the dreamer who is given a much-needed lesson in her own desires and we hear of Sophie herself, of course. Her story is a story of discovery; throughout the chapters we are confronted with Sophie's thoughts about her own nature, the nature of the men (and women) she meets and upon the general nature of sex and love, which, she finds, are not always connected and need not always be. At one point Sophie, who keeps her promise and says yes to any and all opportunities she gets, starts looking, not for more, but for something else. She decides to take on the ultimate challenge; the only man in the hotel who hasn't tried to sleep with her. In her pursuing him, she finds out more than she probably cares too about herself, him and the hotel she is working at, and she also finds out that sometimes what you want and what you get may be two completely different things but no less gratifying. On Demand is a fun, sexy and thoroughly enjoyable novel. Read more ›
