Successful, attractive, and in control, Nora seemed so different from her shy, terribly vulnerable younger sister. Grieving for Franny, Nora reads her diary and is stunned when it reveals a secret sadomasochistic affair with a mysterious professor known only as M. Nora vows to seek justice for the sister she never really knew and undertakes a daring scheme to seduce this lethal and manipulative man in the hope of uncovering information about the murder. Instead, she finds herself in thrall to his bizarre sexual magnetism, trapped in a passion so dark and perverse, and yet so compelling, that she is willing to risk her life. And she is in danger, although it may be from someone much closer to her than M., someone so close she might not see it until it is too late. With an ending as startling as it is haunting, Topping From Below is unlike any novel you're ever read. Ever.… (mais)

How I never found this until now is a mystery. Published waaaay before 50 Shades, this is a murder mystery with BDSM trappings. Excellently written, hot sex scenes, and a few plot twists too.

Loved it. ( )

Don't read this unless you have a strong stomach. ( )

WOW! I read this book and it is definitely erotic. I'm not going to lie some of the things in this book are disgusting.The only thing that kept me reading was the story line. It is about a girl who tries to find out how her sister really died. She finds a guy that knew her and ends up in a sick twisted relationship. If you dare to read this you will be suprised by who the real killer was. But again this book contains very explicit details. ( )

I will admit this right now:

I am way too much of a prude to read erotic fiction.

In fact, I rarely read it. Although, I will interact with it in other mediums. I am fond of the movie Chloe. However, with the heightened craze of books like the Shades of Grey trilogy, which I cannot get passed Chapter 7 in Book one, it is that horrible, I decided to give Reese's Topping From Below a try after seeing it in my local bookstore.

Topping from Below is well written. The voices of the characters are very distinctive: Franny, the young naive desperate girl whose tragic end jumpstarts the story. Nora, Franny's older sister and protagonist, is self assured, arrogant, and confident. Although, in the beginning she thinks she can resist the charms but ultimately falls under the dizzying and captivating spell of M also known as Michael, a Music theory professor who is a sadomaschism aficionado and suspected murderer.

Had it been just a psychological thriller with battle of the wills between M and Nora, I might have even bought this book or wait for it to become a movie of the week on Lifetime. But the rough sex, torture, and beastiality scenes were too much to take. Especially the latter. I got what the Reese was going for. It was supposed to be degrading and immoral. It was meant to break Nora's, and Franny's before her, will but I have my limits.
