Julianna, Emerald as she is known as at Club Genesis, has decided to return to the submissive world after a terrible experience with a want-to-be Dom. She has been guided by her close friend and father-figure Daddy Drake. She has been longing for four long years about finding her perfect Dom. She even has dreams with what this perfect Dom would look like. Emerald finally finds the Dom she thinks is perfect; until she spends time with him alone. Mica, secret owner of Genesis has had his eye on Emerald for several years. Mica is forced to reveal himself to Emerald but then fights his feelings toward her as a result a promise to his dead wife. Embracing My Submission follows Mica and Julianna/Emerald’s story.
The overall story in Embracing My Submission was okay at best but it seemed like the book went on and on and on with no ending is site. The characters were hot and cold and all over the place. I felt the vocabulary was atrocious. If I never see anything about “her womanly emissions” or “womanly fluids” again it will be too soon.
This is the ménage trios story of Nick, Dylan, and Savannah. Savannah meets Nick and Dylan as a result of an auto accident. She gets stuck with them in a little resort/bed and breakfast-type setting due to a snow storm. Nick and Dylan, both Doms, pick-up that Savannah has submissive tendencies and they all decide to see where the Doms/submissive relationship takes them. After they return to their real lives, they decide to their relationship a try.
Although you don’t need to have read the first book of the series, if you do, you already know the fate of Savannah, Nick, and Dylan. Again, vocabulary and word choice really got me; “he threaded his saber between my lips” and she has “swollen petals”. Maybe this is just my personal hang-up but I hate going on long reading and coming across phrases like those. I did feel that the second book had a better story line than the first although I still could never tell the difference between Nick and Dylan unless a physical attribute was mentioned.
Master of My Mind – 5 Stars
Leagh, AKA Brat and her master George have been introduced in the previous two books. George dies and Leagh is left in a total world of hurt in addition to being harassed by George’s ex-wife and daughter. In comes Tony who is both psychologist and sadist. He has always been attracted to Leagh but was unable to show his interest when she was with George. Now, someone is after Leagh and wants her dead. Tony helps Leagh not only get over her grief but also helps to try and figure out who wants her dead.
I enjoyed Tony and Leagh’s book. I felt there their story was really well written and had substance. I enjoyed getting to read and learn more about Tony. Leagh was sometimes annoying as was expected with her nickname of Brat but she was tolerable.
This fourth book is about Mellie, who we met as Savannah’s sister in previous books and Joshua. Mellie has been humiliated by her former Dom and vowed to stay away from Dom’s and Joshua is dealing with his own issues, losing his wife and daughter in a car wreck. This story finds Mellie and Joshua once again discovering the beautiful relationship between sub and Dom. The beginning of the story was a bit confusing but once I got myself straightened out about what was going on and who was who, I thought this was a great story. Mellie and Joshua have great chemistry which was evident from the strong writing. I think of the four books thus far, this is by far my favorite.
