Part two of three in The Fetish Queen series continues here with Infamous.
Two weeks have passed from the end of the first book, and Lilli is trying to regroup. There is so much half-developed drama and dysfunction in this installment that the whole story is starting to wear and drag. Lilli has a secret that is “life altering” because yes, there has to be a dramatic point to her need for a change. So, she takes the plunge and shares her secret with this new group of friends – well everyone BUT Max. Because Max is disrupting her carefully planned out trajectory.
Unfortunately, Lilli is the only one who sees her secret as a big deal – even I was nonplussed. And, even with this deeply held fear – she outs herself on the net as The Fetish Queen, with a response and following that are unexpected to all around her. Max is more irritable and cranky in this – he can’t understand Lilli’s behavior or attitude, but he can’t stop wanting her. They are oil and water with a flamethrower waiting to ignite the mix – they do have an amazing chemistry and interplay. But, this installment seemed to serve as a forerunner to increase tension and action for the last in the series.
Sadly, this story is feeling lost to me: the author had a wonderful idea that was full of potential, and that potential has languished. Writing is not easy, writing erotica is even more difficult: you must lose your own hangups and delve into the story with both feet. Unfortunately, we’ve only dipped a toe in, and pulled it right out because the water was too cold and scary.
I’ve committed to read all three in this series, and I shall. I just don’t think that the story can recover from disappointing me at this point.

In this scintillating second part of the Fetish Queen series, Lille and Max go wild for each other as conflicts arise and dark secrets of Lille’s past are revealed.
Lillehammer Marceau has a secret past—one that has haunted her, one that not even her best friend, Mary, knows about, one that includes a Russian gangster for a father. It’s left her with commitment issues and a fear of trusting anyone too much.
Lille has always been dominant and daring, hiding her fear behind a mask of confidence and bravado, even when the web series she creates about life in the Fetish Box becomes an Internet sensation and she gains more attention than she ever wanted. She believes she can keep her façade intact and still enjoy the pleasures of being with Max, but some men, it seems, won’t be controlled for long…
