My Review

Xander is a writer and an experienced Dom that happens to connect with Charlie through a social media site. She sends him a message expecting nothing to come from it but he was interested in her, for some reason and so the story begins.

Charlie is a woman that doesn’t know anything about the BDSM community when she first connects with Xander over the internet. Slowly but surely he’s introducing her into what it means leaving the lifestyle.

This book is told in 1st person and from dual perspectives. It was an interesting way to see inside each main characters head while this relationship between them was being built.

I’ve read quite a few BDSM romance novels, some better than others, but this one was different. It wasn’t only the slow burn but also the fact that this story was not focused on the sex aspect of the relationship. The steps that a new submissive has to take and how the trust is gained, along with other important things are discussed in this story.

I have my opinions when it comes to Xander’s POV in this story. They didn’t reach me as much as I thought they would. In fact, they struck me as odd sometimes, but that’s just for me.

I would recommend this book to those that like to read about the BDSM life and to see a partnership/relationship form from ground zero, without too much sex in the middle.

Disclaimer: I’ve voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this book.
Thanks, Drew A. Lennox!

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

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.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Lauren is a successful doctor with a healthy attitude toward sex, unashamed of her proclivities as a sexual dominant. She wants love and a family, but she’s beginning to believe there is no Mr. Right willing to stand by her in sickness and health…and be cuffed, stripped and smacked with a riding crop.

Then her friend Lisette invites her to spend a long weekend on a private island. It turns out Lisette can’t come with her, but Lauren opts to go anyway, with no one for company but Joshua, the island caretaker, and his visiting friend Marcus. Though both men are beautiful, it is Joshua who catches Lauren’s attention, and not just because Marcus prefers men.
Something in Josh’s stormy eyes calls to her.

When Marcus facilitates a game of submission and control between the three of them that will last throughout the weekend, Lauren embraces the opportunity. Josh overwhelms her with his willingness to submit to her body’s desires, but her heart wants to get to the secrets behind those eyes. She is going to have to tear down his defenses and make him give her everything. And this is one Mistress who doesn’t take no for an answer…

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

I owe a million dollars to a man who could destroy my life.

Ruining my step-father’s business was an accident—but that’s not exactly comforting when I’m being forced to pay him back. He’s made it very clear: If I don’t repay him ASAP, my mother will take her own life to get him the insurance money. But I’d never let that happen.

I’ll handle this the only way I can…

I’ll sell my body.

Everything about this is scary. Then I meet my first client.

Giovanni is more ink than tanned skin; more muscle than bone. Becoming an escort was never my dream, but if every client is as sexy as him, maybe it won’t be so bad?

But Gio has plans for me. Dirty, filthy plans. Because any man that would pay a million dollars to make sure he’s my ONLY client—to take possession of me in every sense of the word—isn’t someone who acts “vanilla” behind closed doors.

If I let him own me, he’ll be my hero.

But what if I can’t handle what he wants?

This is a standalone novella with a HEA and NO cheating!
Penny Wylder writes just that– wild romances. Happily Ever Afters are always better when they’re a little dirty, so if you’re looking for a page turner that will make you feel naughty in all the right places, jump right in and leave your panties at the door!

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

One sub to please the Master…in any way he wishes.

Victor Connagher is no stranger to the Dallas BDSM scene. As CEO of a risqué cable channel that caters to adventurous adults, he ensures the lifestyle is portrayed in a positive light. He even supports a local bondage club. Yet behind the cool, confident mask, Victor lives in fear.

Once, and only once, he lost control of his inner Dom—and it cost him his fiancée. Now, no one knows how hard he works to keep his darker appetite for pain buried. No matter how much his saucy, confident associate producer makes his fingers itch to once again take up his riding crop.

Shiloh Holmes is a sub, but she’s no doormat. She’s always suspected Victor has the skills to feed her insatiable need for pain, and now she’s found the perfect way to crack his formidable control. Develop a new reality show, America’s Next Top sub…and dare him to compete.

Week after week, as Shiloh fearlessly challenges the real Victor to come out of hiding, he realizes his past mistake was only a blow to his pride. If he loses Shiloh, he could lose his heart.

Warning: Explicit sex, BDSM, reality television, a very reluctant Dom, an audacious sub willing to do anything to win for him, and one very wicked riding crop. Continue reading #BRMondays – Hurt Me So Good by Joely Sue Burkhart
