Publisher's Summary

When Master's business calls him away, Molly is left in the care of Mephisto, the owner of a thriving local BDSM club. Molly is both excited and scared to be given over to Master Mephisto. His power and mysterious intensity have long compelled her from afar. Molly finds herself immersed in a world of strict commands, pervasive sex, and creative torments. Over the course of a week, Mephisto strips away privileges Molly took for granted and forces her to understand and acknowledge the depths to which she can be made to submit.

But a surprising conversation on the last day threatens Molly's worldview, as does the strange closeness that develops between them. As the time of Master's return draws near, Molly finds herself deeply and inexorably changed.

Great, but not for the Faint of Heart!

Club Mephisto is less about a private sex club and more about the dynamics of relationships in the alt/kink communities.

The first relationship is between Molly’s conservative-looking husband. Although she calls him “Master”, I would classify it as a Daddy-girl arrangement since he is mostly gentle, patronizing, and infantilizes her. Her world revolves around complete servitude to him. There are sometimes elements of a mainstream married couple’s relationship between them. I think most readers probably wonder what the relationship would have been like if not for the Daddy-girl, Dominant/submissive arrangement.

The second relationship is between Molly and a dreadlocked, pierced Mephisto, the owner of the Club. Like a parent, Molly’s husband leaves her in the “care” of Mephisto when he leaves for out of town business. Mephisto is an extremely strong Dominant and immediately engages in a TPE (total power exchange) with Molly, who is apparently not prepared for such an extreme arrangement. He is also a sadist, and Molly is often on the receiving end of his brutality.

SPOILERS: Be cautious of the themes and possible triggers in this book. There is light to brutal BDSM; sexual and physical violence; orgies; physical restraint and caging; gang-banging; public sexual humiliation; bi-hetero group sex; and implements that are used for sexual torture and pain. I would also warn that since Molly does not completely understand Mephisto’s TPE lifestyle when she is left in his “care”, her consent to many activities is dubious at best.

I think many parts of the book are very HOT, but I also recognize that there are abusive elements scattered in. For some, this book may be instructive in some of the kink lifestyles and relationship dynamics. For me, it’s always good to remember that there is no relationship — kink or vanilla — that fits neatly in any defined box. Maybe that is a good lesson with which to come away from this book.

A well written slave story but...

This tale was not for the weak. For me, I am not into graphic violence that seem to go too far to me to be a healthy safe relationship. I did not find the scenes arousing or stimulating. However, this may appeal to the more hardcore BDSM readers, but it was way too graphic and even passed into what I considered torture to me. So, he warned, it is dark but again, well-written and I am certain will appeal to some, but I don't enjoy pain or torture scenes at all. if you enjoy the darkest BDSM, you'll enjoy the book.
