Eric Danvers thought he had found the perfect submissive before she was swept right out of his arms.

Now pining after the one woman he can’t have, Master Eric finds himself stuck in a gruelling cycle of emotional torture that has nothing to do with his BDSM lifestyle. Just as he was about to take a hiatus from The Cage and the lifestyle altogether, Master Eric is asked to take on the role of training Dom for one of the new subs. Rather than agreeing, he’s coerced into the role and finds there’s more to his new training sub than meets the eye.

Elizabeth Williams is a sub on a mission.

Elizabeth Williams has read every single book on BDSM she can get her hands on, and she feels as if this is the lifestyle for her. After saving up for an entire year and working an extra job, she finally had enough money to enter the couples training program at the most exclusive BDSM club in Vancouver. Unfortunately, as soon as Elizabeth and her boyfriend are accepted, he decides that he wants a different sub. Elizabeth decides not to let go of her dream and enters the submissive training program.

Master Eric soon finds that Elizabeth Williams may be more sub than he can handle. He loves her brattiness, but he knows it hides a pool of inner hurt that cried out to his Dom instincts to heal. Elizabeth falls for Mater Eric as soon as she meets him and really believes she cannot help her brattiness. She wants to give him her true submission, but she might not be able to set aside her past hurts to move on. Read the story of Master Eric and Elizabeth in The Heart of the Matter.


This was another amazing book by P. Nelson. My first introduction to the work of this author was Master Dillon but I dive right in when I saw this one. I wish I had KU to read the others *pout*

Master Eric was a good Dom in my opinion but with a firm enough hand so he could make his new sub behave. I loved his heart and the way he protected Elizabeth. He was not only an amazing man but also an incredibly caring person. He was also a human being. I say this because Dom’s can look like they can take it all and it’s not always the case.

Elizabeth was a gorgeous woman. I love that the author portrayed her like a normal female with insecurities and worries but at the same time she was her own person. She was curious to a fault and that thing about talking without thinking reminded me of someone I know.

I have to admit I was not expecting the plot twist of the story. The romance was a given because it’s a no brainer and I loved how P. Nelson did it. What I didn’t see coming was the reason behind all the problems they were having. I thought it was all Jerry and then it didn’t make sense and THEN it made sense *smile* Have I confuse you yet?

I won’t talk about the sexy times because… it’s really necessary? It’s a BDSM book after all. I can say I was fanning myself more than once during my reading time and I may have done more after but that’s a secret between us *smile blushing*

The reason why I didn’t give this book a 5 Star review is because I didn’t like how the end was handle. Not the romantic ending, that was INCREDIBLE, but the overall plot involving the Cage. It felt like that was it for this series and I don’t want it to end. In fact, I don’t think it will because we still have to see Mistress Thea, the “Twins” Masters as they’re called, Master Flynn and others stories.

Please P. Nelson, don’t stop writing this stories. I love them so much and made me so happy to see when there are new books of yours to read.

I could recommend this book to anyone that loves BDSM books with realistic and human-like Dom’s with big hearts and a strong hand. Subs that love being who they are and discovering that they can’t top from the bottom without consequences *wink wink*
