REVIEW - PLAY 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.

In Lesson Five, Master sends her to his brother Gage for correction and punishment for going outside the boundaries of the lessons.  And although she finally gets to feel the touch and hear the voice of her husband-to-be he is still a mystery.  And Master finally gives up his own name...Malcolm

She is in Master's office she can tell that he is unhappy as he hands her a box that contains an earpiece.  He tells her to listen and to obey everything that she is told.  

She is expecting dead air, but is happily surprised to hear the voice of her husband-to-be and that this lesson has been planned by him.  He is taking her on a vacation with him to Arcadia.

He wants her to take the time and enjoy herself.  See what she wants and take it.  She ends up playing a game of chess with Ryan who she later finds out has been a life-long competitor with her husband-to-be.  If she loses he gets another game.  And if she loses game two anything he wants.

Juliette decides that before her second game with Ryan she wants to be auctioned and when hearing the offer of a secret she knows who she is picking.

Juliette is on the plane on her way home and finally admits what she wants and she going to take it.  Take control of her life and take what she wants.

This short story is another erotic lesson set up by her husband-to-be.  There are a few surprises and I believe a clue as to who that may be.  But, I guess I'll have to wait for Juliette's other lessons to find out LOL.

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