Tessa had always been fascinated with the Dominant submissive lifestyle, and she was – she felt, a very submissive person. In her real life people knew her as a feisty, headstrong and passionate woman, no one would ever have described her as submissive. But then she had learned over time that being submissive didn’t mean she had to be a doormat, it meant to her that she wanted to hand over her control, her welfare, her safety, to someone else. Throughout her life she had maintained an iron grip on her personal control, organized to the extreme in her work and home life, highly respected in her profession as a Personal Assistant, so used to controlling others to ensure success. But what she truly wanted deep down inside, was a man who could take her to that special place of freedom she had heard and read so much about, to experience true freedom within her mind.
She had signed up to a lifestyle website to learn more about what it was to attain this ‘sub-space’ she had heard about. Peppering her profile with photographs she felt were ‘artistic’, and writing a personal passage about who she was had attracted plenty of admirers, but no one she had particularly connected with. She wasn’t looking to find a soul mate, or even a playmate, just someone to discuss her thoughts and passions and desires with. It was out of the blue that a message had dropped into her inbox.
This intriguingly daring and fiery novella describes three encounters experienced by a young woman, who, whilst fascinated by BDSM throughout her life, had not had the courage or opportunity to experiment in the scene, until now...
In this book we meet Tess and follow her through some of her beginning adventures as she enters the world of D/s.Will her Master accept her? Is Tess brave enough and willing to give all of herself to this man? Only by taking that first step will Tess know.
Tess is our guide throughout this story. We come along for the ride as she narrates what she goes through during a few of her scenes with her Master. I will advise readers that this book contains strong sexual content. Tess is bound and used hard so beware that this book may not be for everyone. Tess is a strong woman who longs for something else and she begins to find it with a man she calls Master. This story is a hot read but I enjoy more of a give and take between the main characters before this level of trust comes in. It was a bit hard for me to immerse myself into the story. Tess quickly trusts this man that she meets on the Internet and follows his orders more quickly than I would have liked. I would have enjoyed some more character development as well. This quick read seemed more like a part of a book than an actual whole book. Although this book is not a favorite I did enjoy this authors writing style and will look for more by them to see if I can find a favorite.
