Welcome to Serpent's Kiss by Sherri Hayes Review

3 Stars

This is an erotic short by Sherri Hayes about a Domme who owns a BDSM club. She's an older woman who lived a vanilla life until she unexpectedly lost her husband of 20 years.

I can't particularly say what the book is about other than that as it bounces around so much it was hard to follow. We meet so many couples and individuals I couldn't remember which character was which and what their stories were come to the next time we came around to one of the characters we'd already gotten a brief history on.

We follow the application of a new member, but we don't get to know much or why this one is so important. I'm sure he is going to be the one that makes Katrina, the main Domme, want to take a permanent sub, but he is only in the actual book for a very brief time.

I think there was a lot of promise there, but there was just too much going on that there was no time to actually connect or get to know any of the characters. I understand that it was to get us interested and want more, instead I was bored and ready for it to end because I got to know nothing about any one character that made me want to read more.

It's supposed to be erotic, but there is one brief scene that wasn't all that sexy in the book.

There is books to follow and I understand wanting to introduce characters that'll have their own books and further exploration later, but there was just too much in too short of time. I'd rather have gotten to know the main couple in this short and met only one or two other people for now.

Overall the writing wasn't bad, but I couldn't connect.

Title: Welcome to Serpent's Kiss
Genre: Erotic Romance BDSM
Author: Sherri Hayes
Release Date: Dec 4, 2014

After losing her husband unexpectedly, Katrina Mayer decided to open Serpent’s Kiss. She wanted it to be a place where she and her fellow kinksters could play and socialize.

Five years after the doors opened, the club is everything she’d hoped it would be. On Friday and Saturday nights, Serpent’s Kiss is filled with men and women who share a similar desire to explore the pleasures BDSM has to offer. The club has continued to grow, and over the years, many of its members have become friends.

The one thing Katrina didn’t expect when she’d decided to open a club was the human drama that came with it. Learning to balance her life as the club mistress has taken some getting used to, but she wouldn’t change a thing.

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn’t good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.

After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.
Six years later, Sherri is the author of six full-length novels, and one short story. Writing has become a creative outlet for Sherri that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create. She is most well known for her Finding Anna series about a young woman rescued from being a sex slave by a wealthy Dominant. The third book in that series, Truth, released July 25, 2013.
