“That’s the thing about sex. It can mean the world
to one person and nothing to the other.”
-Biljana Stevens

Billie continued her trek to exotic countries with the hope of healing from the loss of her one true love. Her journey takes her to a lesbian bar in Chile, a Shibari Master in Japan, and a tantric sex guru in India.
But does it help?

Jasmin is torn between two men. A heavily connected mobster, fresh out of prison, and her mild mannered boss, the consummate professional. What will win out, the desire for insatiable pleasure or true love?
Will she even have a choice?

Vicky had it all. The perfect husband, a great job, and beauty. Until cracks in the foundation appear. Mistrust, betrayal, twists in the road.
Could it get any worse?

Life goes on for the three best friends as they navigate incredible highs and crippling lows.
There is pleasure, at times very kinky pleasure, and there is pain.

The only constant is their undying friendship. 

Review by Kristi Lynn

Book two continues with the lives and adventure of three best friends, Billie, Jasmin, and Vicky. We watch them navigate through a broken heart, complications in love and marriage and a few other surprises. Can Billie’s broken heart heal? Will Jasmin figure out who is her one love and find some happiness? Will Vicky be able to deal with the blows that come her way?

What I Loved About This Book
I was anxiously awaiting book two in this series to see what was in store for these best friends. This book did not disappoint. I have read all of Al’s books and loved each one and for all different reasons. He continues to grow as a writer and this was evident in this book. The raw emotion with all of these characters was penned in such a way that I felt it to my core. I was on the journey with them and feeling everything they went through. I love how Al is able to write from a female perspective. He does a fantastic job at conveying the thoughts, feelings, issues, etc. these women are experiencing. I love these characters. They are very relatable and it’s easy to find small pieces of yourself within each character. I love the friendship these ladies share. They are truly always there and 100% supportive and that is the way friendship should be. You can’t help but to cheer these ladies on and hope they get all the happiness they want and deserve.

What I Didn’t Love About This Book
In all honesty there was only one thing I didn’t love and that was Vicki and her constant internal conflict. I get it and even understand it happens, but it drove me a little crazy as it kept going. I will not get into details because I do not like any spoilers in my reviews.

Overall I think Al Daltrey has done an amazing job with this read and I will anxiously be waiting for book three. I am sad this series will be coming to a close and I am enjoying being along for the adventures of these three ladies who now feel like friends. I give this book five rocking stars and happily would recommend this to readers.


Title ~ Pleasure Pain or Purpose: Book One- Pleasure

My day job requires a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. Meanwhile, as my business career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.

This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn't mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. I've always loved vanilla sex too - but BDSM became the icing on the cake.

During my lifetime I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don't for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.

Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily married.

One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise - I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was 'Testing the Submissive'. The response was very positive including excellent reviews. That motivated me to keep writing, and 'A Condo With Two Views' became my second full-length novel. A few other projects are also in the works.

If you decide to read my book(s), I truly hope you enjoy it.
