read Lips Like Ice Lips Like Ice review Æ eBook or Kindle ePUB He calls himself the Prince He is humanoid but not human fascinating sensual at the cusp of maturity and accustomed to getting what he wants And Lydia has awoken in his world to find that she has been given to him as a pet a plaything and if he so desires a lover Well now this certainly wasn t the book that I was expecting When Peggy Barnett pitched it to me I thought it would just be a fun bit of erotic gender bending fluff Of course knowing Peggy and knowing what else she writes I really should have expected Yes there is a lot of eroticism here and it definitely breaks the gender binary but none of it is fluff In fact Lips Like Ice is a very deep very thoughtful story that goes to some very dark places both physically and psychologicallyBefore I get into its themes let me set the stage for you Lydia awakens from a surreal sort of illness bereft of both her memories and emotions to find herself in an alien land All she knows is that she has been brought there by the ueen to serve as a pet for an adolescent royal Not a friend not a companion not a lover but a pet that will help its owner to learn compassion and caring As for her owner the Prince is an elf like being perhaps a god or an alien from a civilization that looks down on humanity as a lesser animalistic raceThat brings me to the first theme here which is one of dominance and submission Human pets are a common aspect of BDSM erotica usually with a collared slave who happily submits to the role There s a servile submissive element but it s clearly role play Here Peggy strips away the safety and sanity of the role play framework and explores what it really means to be a pet not a person Lydia is ignored her comforts disregarded and often completely dismissed not out of cruelty but simple neglect She nearly dies because the Prince doesn t give any thought to her needs and than once is kicked like a puppy when he s in a bad mood It s a relationship that evolves throughout the tale but that role of pet that uestion of ownership is always thereNot surprisingly the theme that excited me the most is the one that Peggy uses to take the story outside the gender binary The Prince when we meet him is a smooth hairless genderless being on the cusp of maturity at which time he will choose a gender The very idea of being able to choose a gender is an attractive one but Peggy doesn t play it safe or easy The Prince comes from a culture where only firstborns are expected to choose male and younger siblings female The fact that he has chosen male is a great scandal putting both Lydia and himself in grave danger There s some fascinating exploration particularly in the latter part of the book into why he chose male what prompted it and what it all means Anybody who has ever stepped outside the gender binary will immediately appreciate the dilemma he faces Actually the Prince s world is one in which sex is just as bent as gender but I will restrain myself as much as I d love to gush over the imagination there and not spoil the surprisesThe final theme here is one of consent Lydia is very aware of her circumstances and painfully aware of the ways both deliberate and unconscious in which the Prince tries to domesticate her and win her affection She knows all about feeling like a victim She s aware of the perils of Stockholm syndrome and she constantly uestions her own actions towards the Prince The uestion of rape looms large over the entire story and if it gets uncomfortable at times well it should To easily dismiss it or resolve it would be to neuter the whole story and some rolegender reversal in the final act of the story really brings this theme homeThere are so many things I d love to say about the story itself but you really need to let it develop for yourself Peggy took it in places I so did not expect challenging me delighting me and ultimately rewarding me with an absolutely perfect ending Lips Like Ice is often deeply thoughtful to the point of being philosophical but just as often tender erotic and exciting OMG is it ever worth a read As published on Bending the Bookshelf
