Started out great...
on 19 August 2013
Abby finally has a chance to experience her secret fantasy, to become a submissive. And not just a submissive to anyone but to Nathaniel West, the hot & typical-CEO-of-everything man with relationship issues.
Okay, that started off well but kinda derailed... a bit like the book actually.
'The Submissive' is an okay book, it began great, with high tension and sexual anticipation. I loved the actual Submissive/Dominant agreement from the offset. Unfortunately everything that I hate in this genre happened - falling in love too quickly, dominant guy turns into mush, submissive girl - who initiated the agreement - wants a relationship (poor guys just want a kinky lay! Then comes the emotions...) and worst of all was the back story (of them both). I won't spoil it but it's very corny. I don't mind some romance but this felt rushed and flat, I never rooted for either character and their emotions didn't affect me like a dynamic couple should.
Not my favourite book in this genre, it's saving grace was jumping straight into BDSM at the start. Maybe I need to read the next books to get into the series but from this book alone I wasn't a fan. If you like your erotica a bit more lovey-dovey then give it a go though, all-in-all it wasn't a bad book, just not my cup of tea.
