The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions....
Abby King has a secret fantasy.
New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.
After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.
As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach - and that her own might be beyond saving....

This is a typical sub/dom book that did not really take you to the next level. The storyline was the usual girl wants dominant and dominant wants a new sub. Abby is inexperienced at being a sub and Nathaniel is going to teach her the ways. I did not really get their connection and it took a while to truly be drawn into the story. Nathaniel loses a bit of his Alpha male qualities for me and this messes with the chemistry between him and Abby. I did not like that he would not sleep in the same bed as her. It came across as cold and uncaring rather than him doing this to assert his dominance. I am glad that the book ends and you don’t feel like you have to read the next book. I am not really into reading the same book from Nathaniel’s perspective (which is the next book in the series). For that matter I am not sure there needs to be another book. I did not hate this book but it was jut mah for me. I don’t think I will be reading the others.
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
Love is a pretty strong word. Abby, Abby, Abby - you wanted the sub lifestyle, so suck it up and take your licks. A couple of scenes were pretty hot; Abby made sure she got her 8 hrs after her first real punishment.
The obvious one 50 shades.
No, but I listened to all 3 of this series and she's pretty good.
It's All Fun and Games Until You Break a Rule.
First book was a little too vanilla for me. A Dom that doesn't loan or share his sub? Well I guess it's possible.
I loved this book! I would recommend it to anyone who has a taste for the other side of relationships if you know what i mean :)
I loved the bestie Felicia who - was her tell it like it is conscience.
I really did like the narrator. Due to my own issues I struggled every time I heard the mispronunciation of "library". It became irksome and a distraction to the story especially with the frequency of usage.
I thought this book was well written and exciting from the point of a new submissive. Very interesting to see the progression...The story was good because there were little surprises along the way which made for interesting reading..
Yes. This was a well written story. Lots of hot scenes.
50 Shades of Grey. It has kind of the same structure to 50 but not too much.
The library scene. Hot!!
I'll have to get back to you on that.
I loved the way Angelica Lee narrated this story. I thought she did an amazing job at how she connected with each of the characters, especially with Nathaniel.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Nathianel and Abby relationship is very dom/sub in the beginning of the book. I totally loved it. It was actually quite perfect. A great dom/sub plot and storyline. All the event that happen int he book until like halfway through are perfect then everything takes a slight curve and Nathianel lose some of the dom qualities I think. I get it when a dom falls in love with thier sub, but if they are truly a dom... keep that quality throughout.. I hate to see a book lose that one aspect just to fill that I am so inlove with you stigma. It is really hard to do, I understand, and not many authors can do it. This was perfect until that one scene when Nathianel total copped out.... The end kinda of came rushed after that... I just don't see why this is a trilogy. It ended well enough to me, unless the next book is about another couple, because Nathianel and Abby's story is over at the end of this book.
A credit not a buy.
