Pleasure, Pain or Purpose is the story of three best friends.
When everything seems perfect, that’s when a curve ball is likely waiting around the corner. Biljana Stevens’ blissful life is derailed after the sudden death of her cherished David. Now a lonely submissive, she travels the world with a crushed heart.
A contradiction all her life, Jasmin Stallworth loved Barbies; but she also loved baseball with the boys. Now an undercover cop, Jasmine has a penchant for risk: kinky risk. Will she put her career on the line and her life in danger to satisfy her hunger?
Vicky Knox and her husband Andrew were compatible, but she longed for more than a roommate. Why can’t the magic and enthusiasm always so plentiful in the early stages of a relationship, last a lifetime? Married life became mundane. Until rough sex and a password changed everything.
Together the three friends help each other navigate life, loss and love. Oh, and kinky sex...very kinky sex.

The start to a really great trilogy!
Testing the Submissive and A Condo With Two Views was just the tip of the iceberg for author Al Daltrey. Those books were forerunners for a whole new wave and style of story telling from this writer. Pleasure Pain or Purpose takes us readers in a new and unchartered direction, it's like tapping into the heart and soul of Al Daltrey's writing skills. One of the many talents of this author is to introduce us to magnetic, fascinating, and mesmerizing characters such as Abby Walker and Chloe and Jack Gibb. Pleasure Pain or Purpose is no exception to this notable skill of his. I was immediately drawn into the lives of these three intriguing, seductive and captivating characters in this book.
Biljana. The woman that suffers so much heart ache and loss you feel her pain throughout the book as she searches for the one thing her lover took to his grave, her soul.
Jasmin. A woman wanting something in her life but is putting herself in danger as she searches and explores her quest for that kink she so desires.
Vicky. The married woman that has come to a cross road in her life and is confused and unsure if there is anything left in her marriage to salvage.
I think there is a little of each one of these women and their needs in all of us. I personally felt a connection to all three. The spellbinding story about the friendship and connection these three women share is riveting and will have you on the edge of your seat. And yes you will be cursing Al Daltrey's name as he leaves his readers with a cliff hanger. But for the first time Al Daltrey is giving us so much more. His first trilogy. A trilogy that offers something for every reader to fall in love with. Follow along on the adventure and perils of these women as they seek out what they need and desire to make their lives once again complete. Don't hesitate for one minute to one click this first book in a trilogy that will have you begging for more.
Best work to date from this author!! I'm a big fan of Al's previous books and style of writing but every page of this story has showed a new dimension and depth to his talent. I can't wait for the next two books in this series to see what else he's been hiding from us all. Like his previous books it does include the bdsm lifestyle as well as a detailed description of scorching hot sex scenes that leave you breathless but he did bring a few new aspects such as a bit of danger, mystery and suspense. Instead of the traditional couples approach with the lead characters he chose 3 women each dealing with their own journey filled with pain, fear and discovery. Due to the very different personalities and lives these women portray I found it easy to relate to at least one of them and was able to make that connection you crave as a reader. The friendship they share despite their differences is just another reason to fall in love with this story. During their journey they also find out they each share similarities with their sexual preferences and love for kink. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers but some stories need more than one book and can't be rushed. I feel this story can only get better and I can't wait for the next book. Congrats Al!! Well done!!
Sometimes, it's nice to escape a world you’re familiar with
to visit one that is foreign.
Books take us to places we fantasy about or heard whispers of.
Personally, the world of BDSM is a place I visit in the pages
of a story.
I’m not judging, identifying with or condoning; merely taking pleasure in a domain that sparks my curiosity.
If the author does their job right, it is easy to fall into the book and feel
at ease and not self conscious due to the material.
This author did just that.
We all have a best friend, the one you trust, one you can share intimate
details that you would never speak of to anyone else.
This story follows three best friends Biljana/Billie, Jasmin and Vicky
who are making an effort to change/improve/move on with their lives.
1. Billie not only lost the love of her life but also her Dom.
Life is on hold, suspended in time.
Prepare to feel bleakness when Billie a submissive craves
control by a master gone forever.
2. Jasmin is attracted to her boss yet drawn to a notorious criminal.
Prisons are usually cold and hard. The only hardness Jazz found
was in Diego’s pants.
3. Vicky’s love life has fizzled out, she’s determined to figure out why
her husband’s libido is non-existent.
A heated discussion delivers the hottest sex of Vicky’s life.
Chapters alternate between the trio with explicit sex scenes.
Cliffhanger as this is book one of three.
And what a cliffy, I will be salivating waiting to find out what
Don’t disappoint me Al Daltrey.
