This was book three and the final installment in the Pleasure, Pain or purpose Series. I was eagerly anticipating this book to see what would happen with Billie, Jasmin, and Vicky. Throughout this series I have come to love these ladies and their friendship so I could not wait to see how it all ended. Would Billie finally move forward with her heart and love life? Would Jasmin figure out her personal situation and find someone of her own? Would Vicky beat her disease and finally be happy with her husband?
What I Love About This Book
Al Daltrey did not disappoint with this final book. He wrapped up the series perfectly while continuing to grow as an author. I love the depth of emotion and feeling in this whole series but this book particularly. Perhaps because it was book 3, but I was overly invested in these characters and hung onto every word to see how it would end. I loved the descriptive nature in this book. I felt like I was a part of each adventure and experience these friends went on. When they were happy I was happy.  When they were sad, I was sad. When they were unsure, I was too. You get my point. That is the mark of a great author to me. When they can evoke feelings in your similar to what the characters are experiencing. The female perspective is written so well from Al. I am sad to see this series end but I think Al did a fantastic job throughout all three books. He ended it perfectly.

What I Did Not Love About This Book
Without giving spoilers, I was sad that a character is no longer with us and that is all I will say about that. I wanted a spin off dammit!!

I give this whole series 5 ROCKING stars and this book itself gets them for sure!

Pleasure Pain or Purpose: Book One- Pleasure

Pleasure Pain or Purpose: Book Two- Pain

By day I work in Marketing, which involves 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. All the while, as my 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. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.
Over the years 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 in a relationship.
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 overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent - all of which motivated me to continue writing. 'A Condo with Two Views' is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!
