Review: The Laundromat by Ronnie F Strong

4 Stars

The Laundromat is the story of Petra, in her own words. Petra is an attractive middle-aged woman who feels uncertain about herself and relationships since her husband’s departure from their marriage a year earlier. She struggles with her strong sexual desire and has struck up a steamy on line relationship to help satisfy her urges.

Paul, her on line lover, asks Petra to meet him for the first time at an unlikely venue, a laundromat. He tells her how to dress and conduct herself. Although a little troubled at her compliance she happily meets all of his demands. Petra wonders what might happen but has decided that she wants to have sex with Paul at the first opportunity.

She decides to make the most of the unusual situation she finds herself in and is only a little surprised by how erotically charged and desirous she becomes. She is then introduced to an adults-only playground for the pursuit of every kind of consensual sexual pleasure and practice. Petra realises her inhibitions are unhelpful and goes about exploring her desires and feelings. During the course of her subsequent adventures she realises she has a wonderful capacity for willingly submitting to the pursuit of pleasure.

She finds she can appreciate and enjoy different ways of achieving sexual expression and pleasure. She develops a particularly strong attraction with some other people she meets. Petra finds the young and attractive Tessa very exciting and engaging. She also has a particular fondness for Paul. Despite having these strong attachments Petra realises she will not be satisfied with having only one lover. She finds her experiences deeply satisfying and rewarding, although sometimes challenging. She reaches a new acceptance of herself through her widely divergent experiences. She treats these as an opportunity to better understand her intimate feelings and relationships, even those she finds more confronting.

Petra uncovers an ability to experience extraordinary states of sexual fulfilment. Her experiences reveal her capacity to be blissfully transported on ecstatic journeys to the very edge of creation. She gains new insights into her feelings from this other realm of being which exists outside her ordinary awareness and perceptions. Petra develops a deeper understanding of life’s lessons, and what she gets and wants out of her closest relationships and sexual experiences.

The Laundromat was gifted to me by author Ronnie F Strong for an honest review.

From the very start you are thrown into Petra who is a single mother to 3 teenage boys whose husband left her a year ago. She has being sexually awakened by Paul, a man she has being talking to texting with over the Internet on a dating website. When they decide to meet in person Paul instructs her what to wear and where to go which she finds hot and frankly so do I. Paul is dominant and likes to be in control and this is where he tells her to go to a laundromat not far from place. There she meets a lovely young girl named Tessa and she finds out its actually a sex club with a variety of rooms for everyone's different pleasures.

Here the story goes on how Petra finds what she likes which is a whole lot of things in a variety of different ways. I love reading about a woman who is proud of her sexuality and acts on it. She doesn't shove it in peoples faces acts professional and motherly when needed but also looks after her self and her needs.

This book in its approach is a little different to what I normally read and I read a lot of smut, sexy books whatever you want to call them and I really enjoyed it. The characters are hot and the sex holy shit is off the charts.

I highly recommend this book if your into a bit of kink and not a sex snob who likes to read bout other peoples prerogative you might even learn a thing or to :). Thank you Mr Strong for giving me this opportunity and I would happily purchase more of your books.

Ronnie lives in Melbourne's northern suburbs in Victoria, Australia. Ronnie has many children and a wonderful understanding partner. Chooks and dogs wander in the backyard. Ronnie likes gardening, music, football, reading widely and great movies and television series.

Many of Ronnie's interests and daily experiences are woven into the erotically-charged world of The Laundromat Inc. This is where Petra, the central character goes about realizing her interests and wants. Petra lives and plays in locales where Ronnie travels, works and visits.

People who read The Laundromat say they will never be able go past a laundromat again without wondering what might be going on inside.

  1. Thank you Andrea for this considered review of The Laundromat. Glad I impressed with the "sex holy shit". That is a wonderful response to my cosmic writing passages,
