The anonymous note wasn't for me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly— deliciously—it was not.
Before replacing the note—and the ones that followed— in its rightful slot, I devoured its contents: suggestions, instructions, commands. Each was more daring, more intricate and more arousing than the last… and I followed them all to the letter.
Before the notes, if a man had told me what to do, I'd have told him where to go. But submission is an art, and there's something oddly freeing about doing someone's bidding…especially when it feels so very, very good.
But I find that the more I surrender, the more powerful I feel—so it's time to switch up roles.
We play by my rules now.
- Paige and I share an obsession. I wrote my senior thesis on it, and we both sniff it compulsively, especially when fine ink is involved. And we both have an almost irresistible urge to posses it in its finest forms... paper.*
- This is a story about finding the strength within ourselves. It speaks further about the strength it takes to be both dominant and submissive. And to try and try again.
- Switch is a very apt title, as you are led through a series of events... you begin powerless and finish with all the power.
- The ending kind of took me off guard, but as I look back I can see the path and its natural culmination... But part of me still wanted to explore the alternate ending, or beginning if you prefer.
- I'm being pretty damn cagey in the above bullet. Guess if you really want to know you'll have to read it... I double dog dare you. Better yet, I shall simply tell you—wear a blue shirt tomorrow and read Switch.
- *Since this was an audiobook, I desperately hope the printed version is pressed on fine linen that slides beneath the fingertips like a smooth velvet kiss... but I'm pretty sure I will be disappointed. Perhaps the best course of action is to avoid the betrayal altogether and simply purchase a different title authored by Ms. Hart.
