The Slave Factory by I.M. Telling
I purchased The Slave Factory a week ago, and believe it or not I never even bothered to read the book description. I got the book when a little Twitter tweeted me… to let me know that the new book was out. Of course that meant for me to go check it out. Mind you, it had been a while since I’d read one of Telling’s books…but let me tell you, was I ever glad I did! Six pages into the book I had to stop, go back, and re-read it from the beginning-thinking that I had missed something. Then I blinked and before you knew it, I was on chapter six. My initial intent was not to read, but take a peak, start my Sunday dinner and get ready for the NBA playoffs. But that didn't happen. I kept right on reading. It was a struggle for me to put it down.
The story centers on a mild mannered and very inquisitive Tonya Wilson who suddenly decides marriage just isn't her cup of tea and that she’d rather indulge in pacifying an insatiable appetite than be tied down from 9 to 5. Then there’s Jim & Sheila, a couple which lives on the edge, the two of them together they’re almost impossible to satiate. Next, there’s Jerome his appetite is voracious and he’s just downright greedy. Annie has a ravenous desire but she has it all under control...And Bruce, well he’s just an average guy with a fetish for fun, who’s also proud to be gay. Put all six of these little pretties together and all that’s missing is a little BDSM. All they need now is a little Social Recognition. I love a book that has numbered pages. And this is an ideal book to get introduced to the world of BDSM. And like a reviewer before me put it… “Once you get started it’s a real page turner”, you’ll be close to the middle and trotting like Secretariat or Seattle Slew to reach the finish line, or rather, then end of the book.
My Rating Scale
1 star - for interest peak…now you've got me…but can you keep me
2 stars - author tells a story that flows…it’s either good or not so good
3 stars – author makes you ask questions, questions and more questions…but doesn't stop
4 stars – story has the element of surprise or suspense…
5 stars – now what… a conclusions is reached or anticipation follows
Telling writes the characters in a way that makes you wonder… (is he for real…or, are the characters really made up); This could very well be the boy or girl next door , with a side order of enhanced sexual elements, written in extraordinary ways. I really enjoyed reading about them and the book. Without giving anything away, there are a few twists here and there but you’ll find those inside the book. And that tattoo, let’s just say it’s on the cover for a reason. I was surprised quite a few times during my read, but that just made the intensity of reading that much fun. And the ending, I can honestly say I love a good whammy, I definitely didn't see that coming. Come to think of it, I didn't see that times 3…yeah, it was just that good!
When it comes to storytelling, this is not a first for Telling. He’s definitely been around the block a few times. But I must admit he certainly knocked this one out of the park. Yeah, so he left me hanging…he’ll do the same to you. He has a tendency to make you laugh as he provides amusement to this entertaining piece, which just goes to show… by the way the story ended, he knew by then that he needed a Part II. I can’t wait to hear/read if he can actually top this.
I hope we as readers get to travel more in part two. Either way, I've got my Amazon money ready, and I’ll only be 1-Click away!
