She was barely an adult when she met the Dom!
A beast in bed, the top Dom at an exclusive S&M club called The Looking Glass unleashes a primal urge deep inside the women who constantly seek his attention. When Lana encounters him, she is barely an adult and not prepared for his demands, but she is mesmerized by the man in the mask who is the first to awaken her carnal desires. His unconventional props – a wooden throne, a giant steel spider web, and a giant birdcage intrigue her, and she craves him, not knowing who he really is.
Captivating and Extremely Addictive
I left the world behind while I read this book. I was so engrossed in the words on the page that I forgot about my daily responsibilities. The writing is wonderfully mastered and the story line is genius. It's sensual, erotic and sexual, without being over the top or sloppy. I'm a new fan for sure and am shocked that a man wrote it. There is a 5 star amount of sex and the details are perfect. I wouldn't change a thing, and if I could award it 10 stars I would. I'm so invested in these characters I know I'll have a hard time waiting for the third book as I want to know what happens next, as much as I need to breathe.

Linger is for those who want to slip away and feel the emotions and passion to their very core, as if the story was them and they were the story. V.E. Campudoni's characters were perfectly created. He created Enzio in a way that I felt as if he was my Master. He truly came to life for me. Every question he asked had me wanting to bow down to him and surrender myself to him. I felt every touch he gave. He was truly a wonderful Dom and I want more of him already! Lana was a great Sub for Enzio, and when they were together, the heat definitely rose for me! This is filled with sexy Dominants, and curious, hot Subs that fill the needs of those sexy Doms. This a worthy read, for sure, and the ending has me dying to read the next in this awesome series!
Fascinating! Page Turner! Loved It!
This book was riveting! I couldn't put it down. I began to read this book and quickly became enthralled with the story line and the characters. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen next, it didn't, and that kept my complete attention. I read this book in a day and a half, all the while not wanting it to end! Thank you, V.E. Campudoni. I eagerly await the next installment.

Captivating, intriguing, sexy. This book was that and more. This story just flowed!!! Lana and Enzio’s chemistry was off the charts, and their character development was very well written. This is my first book by V.E. It will definitely not be the last!! This is a must read!!

Normally, I do not read erotica novels written by men, but I found myself sucked into the story. I fell in love with the overall story and the widely diverse cast of characters, and the story itself was an emotional rollercoaster! I laughed, I was turned on, I resisted the urge to cry, and without giving anything away, I yelled at my tablet, which caused my husband to wake up screaming as well and him falling off the bed. The sex scenes are truly breathtaking and uncensored! The way Enzio speaks to Lana is truly amazing. I highly recommend this book and have officially placed V. E. Campudoni on my author watch list.

Like many women, I fell into the Fifty Shades, so I was expecting something similar. Imagine my surprise that it was nothing of the sort and it felt like a breath of fresh air. Then I read the first sex scene and my mouth just dropped. I must say, wow! I really enjoyed the story, especially the scenes when the main male character, Enzio, guides the woman of his dreams, Lana, carefully into the world of S&M. Sorry Gideon and Christian, it's been fun, but Enzio is my new book boyfriend.
It Was Amazing
Donna Leary – Goodreads
It's a story that has to be experienced. It's emotional, highly romantic and incredibly erotic. It left me cheering wildly, laughing loudly, gasping, sighing and yes, even hugging my tablet at various moments. This is the type of book that deserves a book tour, radio interviews, and showcased at conventions. This could either become a cult favorite or a absolute game changer. A truly fascinating story of love, revenge and lust!

These are not like your traditional BDSM novels. Mr. Campudoni created a world, not a story, and in that world there are gears that are moving, different paths on a long road that all lead to the same destination. There's comedy, love, hate, conniving murder, lies, deception and lust. I truly enjoyed the sexual scenes and the hardcore BDSM scenes, and I truly appreciate that unlike all of the Doms and Masters in every single BDSM book out there, Enzio is a Dom who cares. He is not a perfect Adonis of a man. He has doubts, fears, and that vulnerability is what I always wanted with a Dom character. I appreciate the realism and the raw emotions. The Masked Emotions Series is a diamond. The Looking Glass has to be the best sexual club ever written and the way it was described and its culture makes it a character all its own. Don't be surprised that in a couple of years down the line this series becomes a live-action cable series. That's how precious and unique this series really is.
The man known only as Dom 241 was bold, confident, unapologetic, passionate, and a beast in bed. He became the kind of lover his clients wanted. He could be selfish, distant, compassionate, and even a brute.
The Looking Glass was the best kept secret in town, an upscale house of bondage where Dom 241 was king. He knew each of his clients like the back of his hand, and there was no line he would not cross. He was always in control, and his clients yearned for his demanding touch.
Lana was no exception. She wore thigh-high black stockings, a pair of black leather underwear with a zipper over the crotch, and a tight halter top that was suffocating her breasts. She could feel him placing a collar around her neck.
“That’s a good girl,” she heard his strong voice beside her ear. “How do you like your new outfit? Tell me how it feels.”
She gasped. “It’s tight… so tight…” She felt his hand gently rub the top of her head.
“Turn around and face me,” he spoke as he gently pulled on the leash.
She was hesitant and nervous. The black leather strap was tied tightly across her eyes as she tried to maneuver her long amber hair away from her ear. She felt another pull coming from the collar around her neck, but this time there was much more force.
“I said turn around!” his voice was sterner and yet somewhat familiar.
“Yes…” she softly spoke.
“Yes, what?” he growled, pulling on the leash again.
“Yes, Master,” she gasped.
“Good, very good,” he praised.
She felt exposed, and she could feel his eyes piercing through her, examining her body. She instinctively tried to cover herself.
“Drop your arms!” he scowled, and she could hear his footsteps as he casually walked around her. “My, my, my,” he said. She could feel his hand lightly touching her hair. “That teddy outfit suits you nicely, my dear.” She felt his mask lightly touching her left ear. “Money well spent.”
On the contrary, it was barely an outfit. She felt as if she were gift wrapped. There were three leather straps that tightly hugged each breast, a long black strap down the center decorated with small metal pyramid studs that barely covered her crotch, and a thin strap in between her ass cheeks. Despite how embarrassed the outfit made her feel, hearing his compliment somehow gave her a sense of relief and satisfaction. “T…Thank you, Master.” Suddenly, she felt his hands grabbing onto both of her wrists, causing her to let out an unwanted moan as he placed her hands behind her back and began tying them together with a silk scarf.
She felt his lips lightly touch hers and she tried hard to kiss him, but for some strange reason, he pushed back. “On your knees and rest your face on the floor.” She could hear the amused tone in his voice and felt compelled to do as she was told. The second she rested her right cheek on the warm tile floor, she felt the sudden sting of his hand smacking against the center of her ass that sent an electric jolt throughout her entire body. Yet Lana was quite surprised that she didn’t scream or even yelp, nor did her eyes water from the intensity of his strike.
“Oh my, oh my,” he calmly spoke, “You really are a bad girl, aren’t you?” She felt his hands resting on the back of her head. They felt soft, yet strong, and she could feel how confident he was just by the way he pulled on her hair. “Maybe you’d like to do this in front of your boyfriend or even in front of Enzio, so he can see what kind of a pervert you really are, Lana.”
“He knows me?!”
He reached over and began squeezing her breasts as his hot breath touched the back of her neck. “Maybe I could bend you over Professor Stein’s desk and spank you in front of the entire class. I think you might like it.” The sudden realization of this man, this Dom, not only knowing who she really was but also going to the same school, caused her body to tremble and her eyes to water as she felt him move his hands from her breasts down to her cheeks. “What an ass!” he praised, “Pretty damn soft and has a nice roundness to it. All those years on the track team suited you very well.” He smacked it hard, “and it shakes correctly as well. Shall I have a taste?”
He knows you, so say red and end this already. Say red, damn it! Lana slowly opened her mouth. “Yes, Master,” she moaned. He stood up and casually walked beside her. She heard the clanging of a glass. Who is he? Where does he know me from? She heard a popping noise. Was it champagne?
