Alchemy xii - May is the fifth episode of the Alchemy xii series—if you're new to it, start with the free prologue, Alchemy xii - New Year's Eve.
Having finally secured her place at Alchemy for the rest of the year, Olivia has to face the fact that Harry is by no means the only Dom with an interest in her. Belladonna has long expressed a desire to top Olivia, and when Harry grants her this wish, Olivia is given a taste of what has made Belladonna the indisputable queen of the club. The physical torment might be just what Olivia longs for but for Belladonna torture begins with the mind and she knows exactly where the inexperienced sub is vulnerable…
But Belladonna's only the start of it. After an intense session in Harry's dungeon with a visiting shibari master from Japan, Olivia finds herself the unwilling focus of attention in Club 60 as her relationship with Harry comes under threat…
This is book 5 in the Alchemy XII series. This series is coming out in monthly installments. In New Years Eve Prologue, we meet Harry and Olivia. In Alchemy XII-January Olivia is accepted into the Alchemy training program with Harry Lomax, and Harry lays on the rules. In Alchemy XII- February Olivia reacts to being cut off by Harry and she deals with her apprehension to this lifestyle. In Alchemy XII- March we see how Olivia deals with jealousy in her face and she conquers some of her other fears. Alchemy XII- April finds Olivia on probation from the program at Alchemy and she gets collared. Alchemy XII- May we see Olivia getting topped, an introduction to shibari, and fought over.
Olivia gets topped by a Dominatrix in this story. She is Harry’s sub, but he lends her out to Belladonna. Belladonna is Harry’s boss and since she is on probation, she wants to do well. Belladonna spills a few secrets about Harry, namely that falling in love with him would mean an end for Olivia. Olivia is still not falling in love….really? I find this so hard to believe. After Belladonna is done Harry takes Olivia to a shibari expert so he can practice rope suspension. Both of these scenes were really hot. Tasmin is a gifted erotic writer.
Towards the end of the story, Belladonna picks Olivia up to watch Harry and another Dom fight over rights to train her. I was rooting for Harry, but the odds were not in his favor. Apparently, the Doms need something other than training to keep them occupied. I didn’t really like this scene, even though it was well written. I enjoyed seeing Olivia give aftercare to someone. I am sure she will make a great Dom, if the time ever comes for her. I just didn’t think the fight for Olivia added to the story, unless….it makes Harry decide she is the one. Whatever makes Harry fall in love with Olivia, I’ll go along with though. (Harry did not declare his love, but I want him to)
This edition also includes a snippet of Alchemy XII- June. I am really, really anticipating the next installment. We will be half way through the year, and this story. I am sure Tasmin will take us for another erotic adventure and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
