Charlotte is a librarian approaching 40 and in a stagnant marriage. When she meets a shy young man checking out a book about masturbation her life takes a turn she doesn’t expect.
Told in diary form, Char writes about how her life has suddenly changed. Included in the diary are pictures she draws. The story and the writing are compelling and the illustrations are nommylicious. The reason behind her big life change is revealed slowly through the diary. I couldn’t wait to turn the page and see what else would happen. Char’s sexual exploration feels very real and her doubts and insecurities are something she has to work through. My favorite part of the story is where she channels her new inner Domme. Since she discovers she also enjoys submission, she finds herself on the other end of the spectrum, enjoying being her Sir’s pet. I’m more a fan of FemDom, so I find the part about her boy toy much more enjoyable, but that’s just personal preference. This story is so well-written, even in diary form, that I couldn’t put it down. As far as Char goes, what a difference a year can make!
