Until I get confirmation back from the author the links will not be posted.

Can lies build a foundation for love?
Gemma Parquin has a secret. By day, she’s the center of her church’s social life. By night, she’s Mistress Lorelei on Kinklife, online disciplinarian of babygirls and all who need spanking, whipping, and—her personal favorite—figging.
No one suspects, until neighbor Celine Daniels comes across Gemma’s Kinklife profile. Stunned and nursing a secret crush, she creates an account under the name starrygirl793 and “catfishes” the Mistress…and gets more than she bargained for. Before she knows it, Celine is also leading a double life.
Meanwhile, Gemma’s best friend sets her up with an online dating service. Enter Stella, who is everything Celine is not—sophisticated, successful, and straightforward. But she doesn’t understand the kink Gemma holds dear.
How can Gemma trust Celine, who has lied to her? Or give up Mistress Lorelei in order to be with Stella? Should Gemma give up on love altogether, or can she still find happiness?
I received this book via the author to give an honest review.
So I have never been big on reading about spanking or even f/f. So when the author asked me to read her other work I wanted to give it a try. I actually enjoyed the story lines she was coming up with and it wasn't dirty sounding like you would find in an erotic book.
So the first thing that calls out to me is the cover and the title. The title just pops out and the title Gemstone sounds so shiny and pretty.
I will say I was kind of going omg when figging was mentioned. I have never heard of this before and it sounds really painful so I had to do some research and yeah.....just going to leave that right there......
I really liked how the author did this book.
Not only do we get to see how Lorelei/Gemma lives and how she wants to find someone who enjoys the kinky life she lives she also wants to find love. She looks on these website but it seems to just draw people who are out for just one thing. Sex. We also have internet interactions between Mistress Lorelei and Starrygirl793. Now Starrygirl knows who Lorelei truly is but yet Lorelei doesn't know Starrygirl until everything is revealed. We see how Celine who has tried to find out more about Gemma tries to let her know how she feels and will do anything to have Gemma look to her for companionship even if that means lying to her. We see how Gemma handles the situation and I would have expected nothing less.
The way the ending came about I can honestly say I didn't think it would really go that way but I am truly glad it did.
There will be friendship, betrayal, love and coming out.
