⭐️⭐️⭐️ Comedy BDSM… funny but weird

The Golden Pecker

I usually love Penelope Bloom’s romantic comedies, but this one really wasn’t up my alley. It’s comedy BDSM, which worked on some levels but not others – yes, it still has the humor readers have become accustomed to with Bloom’s writing, but the focus on submission and the dynamic between our couple was off-putting at times. I definitely didn’t hate it, but I also never got fully invested in the relationship.

The story follows Andi after the death of her grandfather. He left behind a video revealing that he ran a BDSM club out of the basement of his hotel, and if Andi wants to inherit her share of the hotel, then she has to become familiar with the BDSM world and complete a list of sexual assignments… with his former business partner, who Andi just met (SUPER creepy, yeah). Andi’s not sure what to think, but she’s strangely drawn to her new partner, Landon, and not entirely opposed to the idea of completing the tasks. Landon and Andi begin spending time together as Andi learns about all things BDSM.

This still has a whole lot of humor, it just takes it in an unexpected direction. When I read the blurb, I kinda thought the BDSM thing was going to be the punchline of a few jokes, not the focus of the book since it’s not usually incorporated into Bloom’s romantic comedies. I’m really not a BDSM person, but even taking that out of the equation, there were still some issues with the relationship. Since so much of the focus is on that dynamic, there isn’t a ton of depth to anything else. Things move very quickly and there are a lot of secrets along the way. It’s a fun journey but definitely not one of Bloom’s best books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The Golden Pecker by Penelope Bloom. My rating: 3 of 5 stars
