REVIEW - OFFER by Raven Jayne

This first portion is from my review of Obey - Lesson One and gives a little background...., but it is highly suggested that you read this series in order.  They are not stand-alone books and are all about Juliette and her lessons to become the perfect wife.

Juliette comes from a long line of the elite rich.  Rich beyond any imagination.  And in this world, there are secrets and marriages are alliances.  

Juliette has been promised in marriage for as long as she can remember even though she's never seen his face or even know his name.  Her whole life she has been schooled to be his perfect wife. 

Her father calls her to him and tells her that her husband sent her a gift.  Although he isn't her husband yet.  She has just turned twenty-one and is impatient to finally meet her soon-to-be husband and plan her wedding.

But the gift has conditions.  She is to be sent for erotic training.  When she arrives the next day at the appointed address there is no one in the conference room.  Just a silver tray with a note telling her to remove her panties, put them on the tray, lean with her elbows on either side of the tray with the note between her teeth.

But she got tired of waiting and after thirty minutes got out of position and started to investigate the room.  Which is how he found her.  Her instructor.  Who demanded she calls him Master.  Who told her she failed the test in obedience. 

Master is a gorgeous man with dark hair and striking green eyes whose presence takes over the room.  She finds out that she has to pass Lesson One to get to the next lesson.  Not only does he not disclose his name, but he also gives her no information on the lessons or the name of her husband-to-be who ordered these lessons.

Lessons to become his toy.

Lesson One is on obedience.  She is sent to a famous Russian ballet studio for her first lessons.  After weeks and weeks of training under Vlad, she finally understands the purpose of these sessions with him.  It would make things a lot easier if she was told what they wanted from the beginning.

In Lesson Two, Juliette is sent to the famous painter Antoine, who again gives her no clue as to what he is looking for.  She poses and sits for hours and hours and when the final work is done although the painting is erotic in context - it is awful.  You can see the vacancy in her eyes - her wish to be elsewhere.  Which puts her on probation and she thinks that she has lost her chance of passing these lessons and will lose her husband-to-be.

In Lesson Three, her instructor is Jackson, a sexual practitioner who is going to teach her how to have sex.  She then is told that her virginity is not a gift to be saved for her husband.  That her husband does not want it, but no matter how gorgeous he is and how much he turns her on, she can't go through with having sex with him.

In Lesson Four, Juliette has a box that holds three silver boxes with dates and times engraved on them for when she can open them.  And a string of pearls.  Master will be away for the week and these are to be completed before he returns.

Box one sends her to an exclusive jeweler, Evan.  Box two sends her to Mistress Fiona.  Box three sends her to Gavin.

Juliette is sitting in an office with Master waiting.  For what she doesn't know because he won't tell her so she goads him into anger because she is tired of not know what she is supposed to be learning because no one will give her a clue to the lesson.

She goads him until he bends her over the desk and starts spanking her as a punishment.  As he is finishing they are joined by a man who could be Master's twin except his eyes are a darker shade of green.  Brothers.

Master has brought her here to be corrected.  To be punished for going outside the boundaries of her lessons and trying to correct her mistakes without permission.  She finds out from Master's brother, Gage, that he has never sent any of his bespoke whores to his brother for correction.

Gage takes her to a private party given by Loki and her punishment begins.  This book is heavy into hard-core humiliation and degradation so beware.

When Juliette becomes aware of her surroundings again she is on a massage table and is being given a soothing massage to ease the pain of her beating.  And for the first time hears the voice of her husband-to-be.  His hands are soothing as he massages the oil into her skin and tells her how proud of her for mastering her lessons, but he leaves before ever seeing his face.

Later that night Master awakens her in her bedroom and begins touching her in ways that have been forbidden by her husband-to-be, but Master tells her that he will always be her Master and every part of her belonged to him.  Whether she called him Master or Malcolm.  Before she can get over him telling her his name, he is gone.

These short novellas are taking us deeper into BDSM and other power exchange scenes so beware if you have any triggers because each book takes you further and deeper into this lifestyle.

Juliette gets a tease about who her husband-to-be is in this lesson and is excited that she is getting closer to the end of her lessons.

Here are my reviews of the previous lesson:  These short stories are meant to be read in order.
