Sunday Salon: Curiosity Killed the Kat by Elizabeth Nelson

Photo from morgueFile
Another week - more books savored and others to read, and Sunday Salon to help us find what each has enjoyed. It’s time to sit back, relax, refresh yourself with a cup of your favorite steaming hot beverage and see what books are being shared.

The book I have to share today is a bit different, but not different, from what I normally read. It’s different because it includes sexual encounters that go well beyond fantasy play and into areas of torture that are not my cup of tea. It’s not different because it’s filled with suspense, intrigue and human struggle to overcome. What is different about this book is a small part of the plot but critical to the story so for that reason, I recommend it.

Curiosity Killed the Kat by Elizabeth Nelson

Believing you have the perfect life and marriage and having that can beElizabethNelson_CuriosityKilledTheKat two completely different things. So Katherine ‘Kat’ Flynn discovers about her life with the man she adored.

Married to an international lawyer, Kat was the perfect obedient wife. She did everything her husband Steven said, even when his sexual demands went beyond fantasy play of S&M into torture and abuse. She craved his attention and love and thought all was right with her world as long as she did what she was suppose to.

During a dinner outing with a partner in Steven’s law firm, Kat has a most unusual request from the partner’s date. In quiet whispers and without the men knowing, the lady ask for Kat’s help as she feared for her life.

That request puts Kat on a path of discovery. She soon learns what her husband and his partner are really up to and how dangerous it can be for her, as well as others. In addition, Kat learns what she is truly capable of.

CURIOSITY KILLED THE KAT is a quick read with a steady pace that holds your attention from the first paragraph. While you have a glimmer of what Steven is up to, the suspense and intrigue is well worth finding out all the details. The story is filled with action, passion, and inspiration as Kat emerges to find her way.

Author Elizabeth Nelson has crafted realistic characters and combined them with a compelling plot that unfortunately still exist in today’s headlines. She has designed her protagonist with flaws making her journey more plausible. The dialogue is well written and flows smoothly.

This is one read that is filled with surprises, suspense, intrigue, and hope.
