Cursed Needle (Mythos, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cursed Needle by Layna Snow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jude pushes all of Maisy Briar-Hall’s buttons, but he also wakes her from her boring life.


After an incident at the local BDSM club, Maisy is pushed into a hands-on training program. Despite her best efforts, Maisy soon finds herself succumbing to Master Jude’s charms—as well as the needs of her body. Love and lust combine, confusing the lines between scene and real life. 


But not everything is as it seems.


Fighting desire, instinct, and their pasts takes them to the brink of their pleasure, but when a threat to Maisy appears, will their relationship pay the price?


In this sizzling take on Sir. Arthur Quiller Couch’s Sleeping Beauty, Maisy’s intense journey will leave you weak for more.


This book contains a powerful but wary Dom, a sassy sub, and their exploration through BDSM, intimacy, and electricity play. Includes some danger and excitement, and a whole lot of steam. This HEA can be read as a standalone or with the rest of the Mythos series!

Cursed Needle

When BDSM goes wrong!

This was a different type of BDSM story than I have ever read before. It had to do with the harsher side of BDSM, where limits aren’t followed and how a submissive can get hurt if that happens. The story centered around a BDSM club and a submissive called Maisy. Maisy wants a D/s relationship but she hasn’t been able to find the right Dom for her, so she had been doing scenes with various doms in the club.

When she got together with a Dom named Kevin she ended up having to use her safe word for the second time in as many weeks and the club moderator, Jude told her that if she wanted to continue her membership she would have to be trained so that she would better be able to choose a Dom that worked for her.

Maisy had been crushing on Jude but he never played in the club, so she was a bit intimidated by him. She didn’t realize that Jude had a growing attraction to her as well. However, Jude had a bad experience in his past with a sub that was hurt by someone else and he felt a lot of guilt for not helping her. So Jude was determined to make sure that never happened again. After training Maisy he asked her to keep being his sub and help him implement a training program at the club.

Maisy is a virgin and has a lot of limits. She uses BDSM as a stress relief and in the past it hasn’t been about sex for her. However, with Jude she loosens her limits. The story is actually very interesting as well as steamy. Though less steamy than you would expect for a BDSM story. More romantic than I expected.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
