-Warning, this book contains a young woman curious about BDSM and two sexy Dominants who can't wait to show her all the dark pleasures it has to offer, including bondage and chemical play, resulting in intense, screaming orgasms-
Shyla has dreamt about, lusted after, and fallen in love with her to hot as hell bosses over the past year that she's waitressed for them at their exclusive BDSM club. With only a few months left before she graduates and earns her teaching degree, Shyla decides to make her move at the company Christmas Party. As if that wasn't nerve racking enough, her plans to ensnare her Dominant bosses' attention revolves around them bidding on her at the charity submissive auction.
Trent and Jack have been fighting a losing battle to keep their hands off of their beautiful and innocent employee, Shyla, until she graduates. Her gentle spirit and genuinely good heart call to them almost as much as her obvious submissive inclinations. When she surprises them by arriving at their Christmas party dressed like a wet fetish dream, and they learn she plans on being part of the submissive auction, the men quickly decide that the time to show Shyla who she belongs to, and who truly loves, her has arrived.

I really enjoyed Peppermint Passion by Ann Mayburn. I loved the Shyla was willing to put it all on the line for something she wanted. She had waited long enough for the men she wanted and it was time to cut bait if they didn’t want her. I love the courage it took to step outside her comfort zone and become a part of a submission auction especially as she was unsure of the rules. She put herself out there and was pleasantly surprised by what she caught.
I found myself equally smitten with Trent and Jack. They were friends, business partners and the men in love with Shyla. They had made a determination to leave her be until graduation. The only problem is they forgot to let Shyla know. In the attempt to give her time to grow they had given her the idea they didn’t want her. I loved how take charge these men became once they knew they had a problem. Ms. Mayburn showed a clear cut problem and allowed for a resolution that fit the story and the characters.
I enjoyed reading a strong female character that fought for what she wanted without losing her femininity. Trent and Jack were equally strong but were able to bend and admit when they had screwed up. I believed in the chemistry between these characters as well as their budding relationship. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
