Seven Day Loan by Tiffany Reisz

Published: Dec 1 2010

From Harlequin:

A trained submissive, Eleanor will do whatever her master commands…even spend a week with a stranger. Daniel has been a recluse since his wife’s death, and Eleanor’s lover thinks spending time with her will be therapeutic—especially since Daniel is also a Dom.

Despite her defiant streak, Eleanor can’t resist giving in to Daniel’s erotic demands. But while she’ll let him have her body, she’s determined to keep a guard around her heart. Even if Daniel wants to make Eleanor his permanently….

Seven Day Loan is Tiffany’s newest arrival and is a short story (about 53 pages) in which erotica and BDSM run rampant. I recently started conversing with Tiffany on Twitter and thought I would give her short story a go because it sounded interesting from the blurb I had found.

Eleanor is a submissive. She has been trained throughly well by her master to be attuned to his every want or desire. She never says no, nor does she ever want to. When her master tells her she is going to be passed to a friend for a week, she is surprised, slightly mad, but she goes anyway. Not wanting to go against her masters wishes. She is dropped in the lap of Daniel, literally. A reclusive widower who has what I can only describe as Agoraphobia. He had not left his property in the three years since his wife died.

Daniel craves the touch of a woman and the allure of being a dom again. He shows Eleanor many times what it means to be the one in the position of power. To hold her pleasure in his hands.

Being shown so much affection isn’t something Eleanor is used to. Her master is secretive with her because if his position (which comes as a total surprise to me when it is revealed). She doesn’t even speak his name. The actions war within her  because she craves the affection too, though her heart belongs to another man.

Daniel starts falling in love with his “seven day loan” after she opens up to him about her life and experiences. But Ellenor, even though her relationship isn’t perfect, just wants to go back to her master. The question then becomes….where does her heart truly lie?

Seven Day Loan was an incredibly fast read at just under an hour. I did enjoy it though I don’t really read a ton of erotica. Especially short stories where I tend to not become emotionally attached at all. Since reading for me is all about the attachments I form.

This is NOT for the faint of heart. There was one scene in particular that I hadn’t ever encountered before, HA. You must also have an awareness of the submissive/dom world to understand the inner workings of their minds. Mostly the female mind…I mean lets face it, most guys would love to be in a position of complete control. Females however, it’s a harder sell to get us down and kissing the feet of our men. While it personally isn’t for me, I do enjoy reading about it. Though role reversal with me as the dom…yeah I might be able to handle that 🙂 (Everyone single one of my relatives that may be reading this just cringed, I know it)

Tiffany Reisz is an intriguing new voice in the literary world. Seven Day Loan will have you panting and begging for more…in a submissive way.

I give Seven Day Loan 3 stars!

  1. I’ve heard about this over Twitter and wondered at it. It sounds interesting. I might have to give it a read…especially to find out which scene you’re talking about. LOL

  2. Thank you so much for the review! You rock! Yes, the story isn’t for the faint of heart. But it is a fun wicked look at the world of D/s. I know a lot of women who enjoy D/s stories.

    The story is actually a prequel to my big novel The Siren coming out in November 2011 (available in trade paperback). By the time The Siren comes out, my main character has given up the submission lifestyle and taken on a whole new life. You’ll be impressed with her transformation.

    Nikki, you complete me.
    Hugs!

  3. Agreed! This was the first erotica I’d ever read (short story or otherwise), and I really enjoyed the characterization. I think we often think of erotica and porn in a very straightforward way. We don’t think of them as people. Tiffany does both characterization and sex very, very well. Loved this read.
