Saffron Tyler is about to take her journalistic career to the next level; or so she hopes. The freelance writer is about to go undercover for a story on Fingertip Fantasies, a secretive, high-end service that fulfills people’s fantasies. For Saffron, this is the perfect opportunity to not only be published in a national magazine, but to explore the world of BDSM as a submissive, something she has yearned to do but never tried. At Fingertip Fantasies’ private BDSM resort, nothing is what Saffron expects; especially not her enigmatic Master. He both frustrates and satisfies her in ways she never could have imagined and Saffron longs to learn more about the secretive man who is fast-capturing her soul. Saffron has two weeks to write a thrilling exposé on her time as a submissive. But will two weeks with her Master ever be enough? What would it be like to have your deepest fantasy fulfilled? Melinda Barron explores this idea and takes it one step further in her intriguing new Fingertip Fantasies series. In Transparent Illusions, Saffron learns that sometimes fantasies come true aren’t what you wanted – they’re so much more. Transparent Illusions is very much Saffron’s story, and a more likeable heroine to follow along as she delves into the world of BDSM you could not find. Saffron’s intellectually and sexually curious, which brings spark and life to her journey. And the man who is her guide…well, it’d be remiss of me to reveal too much about him. Saffron’s Master is every bit the enigma he calls his sub, and I wouldn’t spoil the mystery for the world. I will say that he is strong, sexy, and every bit up to the task of mastering the willful Saffron. I enjoyed Transparent Illusions. It was full of lively, interesting characters, one in particular whom I hope Ms. Barron writes a story for. If I could have asked for one thing in this story, it would be to see a bit more of the romance between Saffron and her Master. The romance is there, but the primary focus of the story is Saffron’s journey. I would have loved to see more of her and Master, but then, when do I ever want one of Ms. Barron’s stories to end? This talented author constantly surprises me with her vast and varied series, and the Fingertip Fantasies premise promises to provide a world of delight. I finished Transparent Illusions truly excited to follow along on the next sensual fantasy Ms. Barron delivers!

    This book was confusing. It seemed to be going for one story direction then tilted another direction. I did not really like the female character Saffron. I liked the male better but not by much. The blurb let you know more about what was going on than the actual story and the set up was annoying. Some strange man you interviewed with once is showing up at your door before midnight and you leave with him to an unknown location with no one knowing where you are and the clothes on your back? Not ha This book was confusing. It seemed to be going for one story direction then tilted another direction. I did not really like the female character Saffron.

Some strange man you interviewed with once is showing up at your door before midnight and you leave with him to an unknown location with no one knowing where you are and the clothes on your back? Not happening. I just thought how stupid she was and then with the way she acted during most of the book, I never revised my opinion. There were a few hot moments but no real interaction other than some BDSM between the main characters. He spends more time away from her than with her. How is this building trust, getting to know one another, it's not and to top it off by the end of less than two weeks they are going to commit to each other? Yeah, no. I didn't buy it.

    Transparent Illusions by Melinda Barron This story was okay/good. The description listed is good so I’m just going with my thoughts. Saffron is a writer and I can understand her writing the copy in her head but there was a bit too much ‘head writing’ and not enough interaction with the club and people. I would have liked it more if there were more scenes with her Master and their developing relationship. I also would have liked to have read about her first sexual contact with him in their morning Transparent Illusions by Melinda Barron This story was okay/good.

I would have liked it more if there were more scenes with her Master and their developing relationship. I also would have liked to have read about her first sexual contact with him in their morning ritual versus the side note as it was written. Master, hmm 6’5” Giant what to say…Trust and Honesty are very important in this type of relationship or so I’ve read. Is lying by omission still a lie? If the parameters of the arrangement are BDSM and have a time limit and the omission doesn’t have any bearing is it a lie? So overall I did like it aside from the ‘head writing’ and the story went quickly.

    It took me forever to finish this book. I stopped reading at one point, because it just wasn't doing it for me. The characters are likeable enough, but they are lacking in chemistry. And the HEA was so sudden, I didn't want to believe it. It took me forever to finish this book. I stopped reading at one point, because it just wasn't doing it for me.
