Title: The Submissive
Author: Tara Sue Me
Series: The Submissive Trilogy #1
Abby King has a secret fantasy.
New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.
After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.
As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…
I was excited to read this one because my girlfriend had told me it was good.
I really did enjoy it. I was a little confused on a few things but it ended up making sense later in the book. I had at first thought, well he is sure is letting her get away with a lot.
There was one part of the book where she gets stuck in his house because there is a storm and I forgot that when they play it is only on weekends so I had to remind myself that during the week she is herself not his sub.
I liked the relationship, at first I thought wow he is pretty intense and very this is how I want things kinda guy. And most Doms are. BUT there was something about him in particular that had me wondering what was going on because there was a moment where aftercare was needed and not given. I knew then there was more to what is going on where he is concerned.
She was pretty damn good as a sub for it being her first time. I am not sure if that was a good or bad thing since I do not live the lifestyle. I want to believe that a newbie would make a few more mistakes. But I am sure that all one would need is one mistake to get a good punishment and never want to make a mistake again.
I am looking forward to the next book.
