Sting Factor (kink): 4.5 out of 5
A tightly wound woman with a secret persona meets a prominent Dom who’s itching to make her unravel.
Renowned Dom Ethan White offers straitlaced Colin Reneaux an escape from her conventional life. Reluctant at first, she eventually agrees to explore her secret desires with BDSM tapas—small bites of erotic D/s scenarios featuring Ethan as her captor, boss, interrogator, professor and Master. Each eye-opening and sex-fueled scene leaves her more breathless than the last.
Ethan’s surprised to find himself challenged by Colin’s strength. He quickly connects with her inner submissive, drawing them deeper into the D/s dynamic. Soon she becomes the woman he swore he’d never need, and he, the Master she craves. Together they find the perfect balance…until someone from Ethan’s past returns, someone bent on revenge. Ethan’s left with no choice. He must break Colin’s heart to save her from the vengeance that threatens her dream.
But Colin has other ideas. Like whose heart should break and who should ultimately surrender…
Fabulous! Riley Murphy did a great job with the chemistry between Ethan and Colin. The story is filed with heat and sex without overtaking the plot. And the sex scenes were hot and steamy.
The author did a great job showing that being a submissive is not the same as being a doormat to someone. While I was not happy with how Jade came into the story and how that part of the story unfolded, it did nothing to detract from the overall story line.
