Product Description

About the Author

By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle. This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn't mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling. Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don't for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control. Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship. One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise - I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted is pure fiction and more extreme than anything I'd subject a submissive to in real life. As many reviewers have said it's not for the faint of heart. That said, the reviews have been spectacular. This enthusiastic response fueled me to begin a second book. The next one will be written from the point-of-view of both the Dom and the sub, chapter by chapter. If you decide to read my book, or any of my future efforts, I truly hope you enjoy it.

By Rob TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 Nov. 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a subjective book. I can imagine an awful lot of people will hate it because of what Lewis “made” Abby do. But to understand this book and to understand the relationship between Abby and Lewis, you have to have an understanding on what a D/s relationship entails and also what S&M actually means. While it might seem abusive to some, it's not abusive to Abby...it's her "thing".

This is no lightweight spank on the bum bum story. This is the story of Abby who has agreed to be the whipping bitch for the Network and Lewis is the one who decides who she services. Some of the whipping scenes are extreme; there are bruises, marks, bites, burns, sucking stranger’s man parts…. but it’s all consensual. I will say I could picture every scene in my head and I can also say it’s not the highest end of the BDSM scale, but it is more than the usual level they feature in books.

At times I felt a bit sorry for Abby as she was at the stage of wanting “more” yet Lewis just kept playing with her mind. He certainly tested her and she passed with flying colours.

It was an interesting way to write the book and get all the descriptive scenes in, by presenting it as a debrief.

One thing I might go and check on is the sex of the author. This was definitely written more for a man so I'm guessing it was written by a man. I find men can write pure arrogance better than women, women tend to couple arrogance with charm which makes a woman's alpha male so much more likeable than a bloke's alpha male.

I actually had to have a bit of a smirk at the end of the book with the choice Abby made. Lewis portrayed himself as the ultimate Master and yet, the choice Abby made kind of insinuates he wasn’t enough for her, and that did make me laugh and good for her!!

people in the BDSM lifestyle will find this book insulting. BDSM is NOT.prostitution as it's made out to be here. some of the book didn't even make sense. but inhale given it a 3 star rating is because Al's style of writing is great. it draws you in. but the storyline itself was poor and in my eyes insulting to the lifestyle.

This book takes a very different look into the Bdsm world and is very graphic but I love erotica and Bdsm and this has that and more it adds that romantic touch too and I was hooked I couldn't put it down. It was very graphic and the punishments Abby receives are very harsh but I loved this Pov from a submissive with no holding back on the writing
Along comes Abby looking for pain and pleasure and her master-lewis to sub her out to be his whipping bitch to whoever pays , as he sends her to her first interview which she passes with flying colours makes her so pleased to do whatever and with whoever Lewis sees fit for her to serve, at first it's just business but the more into it she gets the more she wishes it was Lewis doing the whipping and FUCKING. The more interviews she did the more deeper she was falling for Lewis and her submissive behaviour didn't go unnoticed with each interview she did and the descriptions of what happened in every scene she gave him saw her submitting more and more under his control this he enjoyed putting her to the test to see how obedient she could be for him and she was in heaven when he took her on a trip to Paris that's when she fell deeper in love with him,there's nothing she wouldn't do for him but would he fall in love with Abby or keep it strictly business ? This is one author I will be following very closely and the fact that's he's a Dom too makes the story work so well as knew exactly how to put that edge to this book and I can't wait for the next book from Al Daltrey well done Sir.

Take heed of the author’s warning as this is definitely not one for the faint of heart! Very rarely has a book left me speechless, but Testing the Submissive certainly did.

This was one seriously intense, and at times for me, uncomfortable book. Having said that, I was engrossed!
I couldn’t put the book down from start to finish.

The story revolves around Abby and Lewis, the man who she calls master. Abby, a masochist and a submissive, is part of network of submissives who are shared between clients/other sadists in the network.

Testing the Submissive was a smoking hot and extreme read. Think of any kind of sexual situation and it was probably in this book!

Despite enjoying the book, personally I felt there was a warmth lacking in the relationship between Abby and Lewis, and I didn’t really feel their connection, and I especially didn’t like how cold Lewis acted towards Abby (even if there was a reason for his actions) but moreover I didn’t like Abby’s acceptance of his behaviour.

I found myself questioning the line between submissiveness or if the heroine was just being a doormat, and I found that I couldn’t answer my own question.

Having said all that, I found the book to be well written, very entertaining and thought provoking. I would definitely read more from this author!
