James Collier is a London based dominant, and in this rare, unapologetic expose, he shares some of his more romantic, debauched, and whimsical escapades. With help from Maggie Carpenter, he has dramatized his stories and put them together for this unique novel.
James opens up his life and shares his feelings, his perspective, and even a sampling from his list of rules given the women who choose to surrender to his skilled, sensuous hands
A man who loves Keats as much as The Rolling Stones, James is a disciplinarian and is quick to punish, as his tale of a public spanking makes abundantly clear, but he is also a romantic, and in this unique book he shares tales that will touch your heart.
Journey with James as he spanks naughty girls, makes love with artful prowess, and gives us a glimpse into the life of an old-fashioned, but modern day romantic dominant.

I absolutely LOVED this audiobook! I think English accents are hella sexy anyway, but narrator Rob Groves has an incredible smooth-as-warm-pudding voice that just melts me. This is the story of James, a Dominant, and several of his submissives. Rob manages to master both James's steely determination and warm nurturing affection when dealing with his subs. Make no mistake: this book features discipline, bondage, vulgar language and hotter than hell sex. However, these individual stories are ROMANCES and the true emotional connections between James and his submissives are at the crux of each relationship. It's a wonderful ride that I strongly recommend to everyone who enjoys dominance erotica.
Such a great book. The narrator was wonderful and perfect for this book. He had the right accent and really seemed very confident as the character of James, the dominant. The story is delightful. It is the memoirs of a dominant as he first enters the lifestyle and continues with some of his different experiences. It was not chronological but it worked really well. I really liked the ending which I will not give away in this review. The author does a great job of bringing the story to life. I enjoyed this book immensely.
I really love James Collier's characteristic. He's romantic, gentle and a fantastic dominant. Can't belief there's still such gentleman out there. Mirren's story sounds like a fairytale and am really curious what happened after that weekend as it was not mentioned. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story of your life & I really enjoyed reading it. Really hope that there will be more books from James Collier and Maggie Carpenter! It's just so amazing that I can't stop thinking of how James treats his sub! Narrator Rob Groves is amazing! Loved his voice and the way he speaks! The situations sounds very real. Only if there was another lady narrator to make it feel even more real would be even greater! Loved Maggie, James & Rob!!! Waiting for book 2 & so glad that James is still willing to share! Maggie, pls help us get book 2 from James! 😊
James journey as a Dominant. The story A Brat Named Rachel.
Rob Groves captured the characters personality and brought them to life.
I was hooked from page one.
Outstanding character development throughout the story. Enthralling plot and story never loses momentum. Author's writing is extraordinary. Without reservation, I recommend this book as a definite read.
I love books especially romances and mysteries. I enjoy sharing a good story. I have been receiving and reviewing ARCs for years.
For those actively in the scene and for those of us who only know BDSM through books, this is an amazing glimpse into the real life relationships of James Collier a real man who calls himself, rightfully so. a Dominant. The stories were conveyed wonderfully by Maggie Carpenter's words and the narration by Rob Groves.
I was fortunate to have been gifted the book by the author and have voluntarily left this review.
For those who are into this life either personally or in the written word, I'm sure it would be a good one to listen to again.
To be honest, this is not my favorite medium. I am rating this with that knowledge. The writing and storyline (knowing it comes from life experience) was very interesting and answered many questions. The narrator was excellent. I had listened to him in another book and enjoy both the accent and voices. You will follow a young man investigating feelings that didn't match his mates (English for guy friends) He seems to be a natural and the women he encounters feel that as well. The experiences are erotic and it is a very steamy book. I would recommend this to any into this genre. A unique book and experience. The friendship with the author is obvious and makes this an even stronger read.
A true, clear and concise account of a Dominant's relationships; How he feels (yes, I said feels), what he expects and or demands, how he treats his subs, and his perspective about his life as a Dom. I found it intriguing, extremely passionate, and very well written. I fell deeper in love with James (though I didn't think that possible) due to his compassionate heart, his desire to fulfill the needs of his sub, and his devotion to her while with her. Being a submissive and giving up control takes strength of character to obtain complete freedom, but taking total control of another and exerting power and discipline over that Individual takes inordinary strength, warmth, kindness, selflessness, and compassion; all characteristics which James possesses. Did I mention that he is hot hot hot? I bought the audio book just to hear Rob Groves sexy voice tell James's story and yes, I did buy extra panties prior to making my purchase. James would call them "knickers", giggle giggle. Such a great decision on my part. Problem now is, I'm in love with Rob too! If you really want to treat yourself, and you haven't done so already, read Disciplining Destiny, and Amelia's Awakening, (Expect The Unexpected) By James Collier and Maggie Carpenter. I guarantee you'll be entertained and pleased with your purchase. I totally was and am still. I love you, James. I love you, Rob. And yes, I love you too Maggie Carpenter!!! Thank you for this audio book!!!
I have love all Maggie Carpenter's books, but I loved hearing this one! The narrator'a voice is perfect for the story, and keeps you hooked the whole book!
