About the Author
Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice! Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?) Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits. She invites you to take a walk on the wild side but only if you dare. You can find Sierra on Facebook, follow her on twitter and check out her page on Tumblr.

I loved that each novella had a good background story. In all of the stories the sex was well written and smoking hot.
Every tale was worth reading and after every one I thought, "I enjoyed that".
Best of all was the bargain price of £5.39 for all six long novellas. You could only get a couple of stories for that price if buying them separately.

Wow! A blazingly hot collection of tales that explore the steamy world of BDSM written by six very talented authors. This was a fascinating look at the different aspects of submission seen through the eyes of those who are familiar with the `Life' as well as those who are being introduced to all of the joys that can be found with the proper guide. That elusive state of subspace can only be achieved under the right circumstances with the right person(s) and these sizzling stories give intriguing glimpses of various paths to that delightful goal. Particularly entertaining was the glimpse of people in all walks of life who choose to explore this aspect of their intimate encounters and the delightful experiences that are available to those who are brave enough to try new things although some situations require a suspension of disbelief. A nice selection of spicy tales that introduced me to several new authors while reminding me of how much I enjoy the tales of one of my favorites.

I received a copy of this title in return for an honest review.
Three Way Tie by Sierra Cartwright
This was definitely the way you want to start an anthology, with two sexy doms trying out a new toy named Lindsey. While I am not part of the BDSM scene, this story sure did give a girl a few things to think about. The way Rafael and Eric used their mutual understanding to teach Lindsey what true submission really is was amazing. I felt like I was actually in Lindsey's shoes at times and could picture these gorgeous men standing over me. I have to say this author really set the bar high for all others to follow within this anthology.
Head Games by Desiree Holt
There is something about the name Diego that is exotic and enticing. The way it rolls off the tongue makes me want to say it again. The way this character commands the bedroom makes Kaci want to roll her tongue along his body.
While the physical attraction within this story was entertaining, I felt as if Diego's reluctance created an emotional block I'm not use to in BDSM stories. One of the aspects of this genre I have always enjoyed was how the characters seem to have such a great connection both physically and emotionally. With this slight emotional disconnect, it made the relationship feel a bit hollow at times. I think more understanding about Diego's personal issues would have made it easier for me to understand and appreciate his reluctance to give Kaci his all.
Even with this disconnect the story was a good read, especially because they had boundaries within their relationship which allowed each character to be themselves. Many times, in a BDSM relationship, it seems all consuming and the characters lose who they really are. Therefore, it was refreshing to see Kaci and Diego stay true to themselves.
His Landlady by Jan Irving
This is one of the few plot driven erotic stories I have enjoyed. I normally focus on the characters within a story and they help to drive the plot but within this story, I found the plot line captivated me more than the individuals did. I really enjoyed seeing how the relationship developed, and while I did not know much about the characters, I appreciated the progression of the romantic interest. I especially liked the little added subplot of Diana caring for Jeff, her deceased friend's child. The BDSM element seemed pretty novice but that's because Sloan and Diana had a novice relationship so it worked with the concept. I found this story thoroughly enjoyable.
The Science of Submission by Justine Elyot
In this story, Ailish and Rod's relationship development was wonderful. The relationship growth from beginning to end was stellar and I was convinced they could be a real living couple. The thing I would have liked to see more of is the physical connection between the two. They did participate in BDSM scenes, but I would liked to have had a bit more intercourse. The story revolved more around the foreplay and build up than the consummation of their relationship. The minor characters also added entertainment to the story.
Away From It All by Elizabeth Coldwell
If I knew I could go to a spa and get the ultimate sexual experience of my life, I would be in a car right now. Alyssa hadn't anticipated meeting Drew at the spa. In fact, she didn't want to deal with men at all, but it's always when you least expect love that it nips you on the bum. I have to say I really appreciated everything about this story from the plot, to the characters, to the candle play, which was a first for me within a story. One aspect of the tale I enjoyed was that the relationship was not forever immediately. Instead it's a happily for right now. I think it made the storyline more realistic.
The Accidental Sub by Mina Dorian
The beginning of the story was a bit puzzling to me; I mean how do you accidentally make someone a sub? I would have liked to have understood a little more about the mental/emotional state that lead to Catherine accidentally submitting to her co-worker. Other than that, I felt the story was right on target. Jon is the type of Master I can see many woman falling in love with whether they are interested in BDSM or not. He seemed to have an air of confidence without being arrogant that any woman can appreciate. I really enjoyed the subplot with Catherine and her past relationship as well. It added a bit of excitement to the story and made me want to learn more. A great end to a wonderful anthology.
Because of previous experiences with anthologies, I started reading this one expecting at least one story I wouldn't enjoy. Instead, I found every story entertaining and each could have stood on its own without the others. I was pleasantly surprised by the degree of exceptional writing and I'm sure any reader would enjoy Subspace.
