Description

When TV commercial production coordinator Meg Curtis gets stood up by her longtime boyfriend, she vents her frustration by feverishly writing in a diary.

At a time when she is unsure about all things romantic, she encounters fifth grade teacher Regina Baker at yoga class, a free-spirited single mom who is beautiful, playful, and impossibly intriguing. What starts as friendship, turns sharply toward something more as they learn they each share a love for very dark and unconventional sensual expression. Shocked, yet thrilled by the intense level of Regina's erotic desire, Meg explores her own deep-seated desires that have been locked away in the shadows her whole life.

Erotic, amusing, and profoundly romantic, Owning Regina is a tale that will awaken you, possess you, and transport you to a reality that steams with passion and vulnerability. This book is intended for mature audiences.

Critiques

"I would recommend this book to anyone who wants more than a cheap thrill out of their reading, to anyone who enjoys seeing positive, realistic, and consensual depictions of kink in writing, and to anyone who wants to understand what kink is - what kink really is." (Lily Zheng, The Stanford Daily)
"All in all, Owning Regina is a strikingly sexy book that I recommend to anyone curious about BDSM. Owning Regina can easily be devoured in one sitting - as the days in Meg's life go on, there is an urgency for more and Elstrom does not hold back with her delivery. Having taken my first bite into a BDSM fiction featuring two female lovers has opened my mind to endless possibilities outside the lines of a vanilla romance. Aside from the swift declaration of love in a short passage of time (I often find these storylines unrealistic and stereotypical), I found Owning Regina to be a very fun read!" (Danielle - The Lesbrary)

I really wanted to like this too

God this book was such a damn let down, it started strong with the first part but by part two the main character really started to aggravate me and it got really hard to continue listening.

On the narration front I like the narrator, she was good but the formatting was miserable to listen too. Is 15 seconds of angry music necessary in between paragraphs? The way it try’s to make it a performance instead of just a book didn’t sit well with me either, like birds chirping during a conversation and characters actually talking over each other. The story is also broken into parts with minor credits after each part, I get that this story was made in those parts but just cut all that fluff out now that it’s been collected into one book.

Loved it!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would totally recommend this book to my friends, I already did to be honest. I love how this book talks about BDSM and the way BDSM and Kink is explained during the story, also thumbs up for talking about "safe, sane and consensual" even tough it is never mentioned you can find the principles back in the story! If my friends have questions about BDSM or Kink I would let them read/listen to this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

First time I've listen to this book I've finished it in a day.

WOW - LOVED IT!

Would you consider the audio edition of Owning Regina to be better than the print version?

50 Shades look out, a different version is out. Well done Lorelei. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
I was unable to stop listening, caught me and kept me.

What other book might you compare Owning Regina to and why?

50, but more personal, more realistic, a deep and sincere romantic connection, kink is the new black, ha, but wanted it to go on and on, it sucked me in....

What about Hunter Keanon’s performance did you like?

great choice =) for Meg and so was the performance of 'Regina' made me fall into being a fly on the wall as though I was there, loved it, well done

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I almost finished it in a day, I couldn't stop listening, traveling, through happy hour, through dinner, until bed...kept my attention. Again, loved it, loved it, loved it!

Any additional comments?

can't wait to see what Lorelei comes up with next...dying here waiting!
great listen, thank YOU for sharing.....well done! XO, Scotty

BDSM and Clothes

This is a well written book that goes into far too much detail on the details of bondage, clothing, and the experiencing of pain. I would have welcomed more words concerning their feelings and the arc of their overall relationship than 3-5 minutes spent on the pain experienced during one whipping than was given to the "bottom's son." If you can take or even enjoy highly nuanced descriptions of bondage and pain then you may like this audio; if not, then it's not for you.

Its just not for me

The story moves very slowly and the MC just isn't likeable for me. The combination made me just abandon the story altogether.

Lovely

A pretty good depiction of consensual kink. Also, the confusion that the main character experiences about being in a gay relationship is relatable. The narrator who is reading as Regina has a sexy voice. Overall an enjoyable listen that I played a few parts of over again.
