Book Description
My wife’s dead. She killed herself right in front of me and it’s all my fault. My main goal now is to not mix my sexual needs with my emotional needs. Those are damaged forever. I bury my pain in a sex club that provides me an anonymous release. This way I never emotionally cheat on my wife. She was my forever. This is my right now.

You name it I’ve read it. I love my erotic novels. After my husband was murdered, this is the only excitement I get out of my lonely, pathetic, workaholic life. That is, until I met Becca with her invitation to join her for one of my wildest book fantasies. Now I can be whoever I want to be, where no one knows my past and will never be my future.
Rachel's Review~
Oh my.  This book had me from the first.  What's not to love about an exotic sex club where everyone is in masks so you don't know who's who?  You can be anyone you want to for the evening...from a shy schoolgirl to an order giving dominatrix...whatever you feel like that night...that's who you are.
And that is the perfect place for someone who's lost the love of their life to let go and just be.
That's just what Preston and Kamii need.  The ability to have sex without love...find release without worrying about the other person...or so they thought.
Lauren's characters are perfect for this story.  Both having had love, losing that love, Preston's wife committing suicide..Kamii's husband murdered...and not wanting to open themselves up to that kind of hurt and betrayal again.
But what happens when there are feelings at first sight?  What Kamii doesn't know is that Preston, the man that gave her pussy feelings for the first time in forever, is really EROS...the one man she can't shy away from in the dungeon.
It's not all serious and sexy though...
~"who knows with men. He was into you though."  I look up, surprised, "you think?"
"Hell yeah, I think! The way he looked at you. Hot Damn!"
"God, yes. I felt that..."
"In your pussy?"
"WHAT? Um..No..Did you really just say" I lean in to whisper,"the p word?"
She throws her head back laughing, "Yes, I did. Pussy, pussy, pussy. And I bet yours is wet right now."
So not only does Kamii come back to life, she's taking it all in stride.  Kissing a girl, a threesome, foursome, double penetration...and all the time EROS can't stay away...no matter who she plays with, he seems to be there.
Watching...waiting...always and only for her.
So, about half way in I slammed the cover shut on my kindle and said out loud NO!  I can't fucking believe you did that Lauren!!!  and I went about my merry way and did what I always do when I'm pissed...the dishes!  Then I did some laundry..then I couldn't stand it anymore and I had to go back to Preston and Kamii and the suspense that ramped right up.  I finished the last half of Black Widow in about a third of the time I took to get through the first half...it's not because the first half was slow...OH HELL NO...it was sexy as all get out...but because I was reading faster and faster. I couldn't wait to see how it all came together...
Freaking fabulous story!
