This was an unexpected delight from Kindle Unlimited. The writing wasn’t the usual drivel you get in some. Instead I found a well laid out and thoughtful story that took steps to be true to the genre. Loved it!
Adley made a drunken decision on her thirtieth birthday to sign up for D/s dating site. Her sober side would never admit her desires lean this way, but the drunk side of her didn’t see any problems with this. Making the decision to delete her account, she gets a message. His typed words controlled her in ways she only dreamed of and now she can’t seem to stop. She knows she can’t fall for a man who has made it clear this is only for fun, but every step draws her into a world she craves and into the arms of a man she is starting to love.
Dom is The Dom. He loves showing women what their gift of submission means to him. Giving them pleasure while they give him the submission he craves over their bodies. He knows Adley is new, untrained, but he finds himself craving the need to teach her about the world he lives in. He goes from messages to texts to calling and then meeting her. Keeping her coldly at arms length when her passions overflow and he get caught in them.
The passion and cravings these two share are incredibly pulling, but at the same time Dom’s coldness pushed me away as much as it did Adley. He reveals very little of himself to her and while he makes non-verbal statements with how he dresses her or collars her, she doesn’t know he is doing it.
I do applaud her for standing up to him. She won’t be his cold play thing when she feels so much deeply. She may be a submissive just letting her submission create feelings that aren’t there, but they will not be invalidated by the man who evoked them.
The BDSM is not over the top, but it isn’t a vanilla story either. They each have their kinks and how they meld together makes this one sexy story. I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did and now I can’t wait to find more books by this author.
