He & She by Wayne Clark takes us into the bored life of Kit. He has a boring career, a girlfriend that has been on again and off again, and now he is turning fifty. A man who has lost the vivid colors of life and now only seems to see shades of grey. That is until one night he looks on the internet and finds a photo of a young woman. The photo shows a woman of regal bearing who is beautiful and something about her just brings a spark of color back into his life. What he could not know until he read further down the page is that this woman is a dominatrix.

The first thing you need to know is that this book is no 50 Shades of Grey. It may be BDSM but this book reaches far above 50 Shades in both style and content. What He & She does is dive into the truest meaning of what it is to be human, the desires that we have and just how deep those desires tend to run. This book is both cerebral and entertaining, and I enjoyed following the journey that Kit finds himself on once he decided that he may not be the dominating sexual man he always thought he was, but instead a submissive.

The first part of the book is a little bit different and it could possibly turn some people off if they aren’t expecting to be introduced to an older man who only has the pleasure of masturbating left to him as he lies in a hospital bed. With that said, once you move beyond that and dig into the history of Kit’s life and the analyzing he does of every choice he has ever made, you will be in for a treat. This is a deep and interesting read and one that I did truly enjoy.
