Publisher's Summary

Josephine needs a Dom to Top her if she's going to conquer her issues with men. But when Ted, the frenemy she's chosen, refuses, Jo needs to take drastic measures. She goes to his resort to find another candidate. Unfortunately, that plan's a bust.

Headstrong Jo is a Dom's worst nightmare. So when Ted discovers that a newbie has signed the "Full Monty" release form - an occurrence that has the resident sadists circling - he knows it's Jo.

What's a Dom to do? After he thanks her for giving him carte blanche, he hauls her ass up to the rodeo room for a ride. A ride that rapidly becomes a trip of epic proportions with kinky detours galore until they hit a fork in the road. One avenue leads to Jo's prized independence and the other leads home to Ted. Now, Jo must decide between the two.

    "Weird pauses"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. At least not the audio version. The story was okay but the narrator kept pausing at strange places in sentences where pauses don't belong. To be fair I haven't read the test version so I don't know, maybe it is poorly punctuated with commas in the wrong places but hearing it read like that was extremely annoying. It took away from the overall feel of the book.

    "Great story - Wrong narrator"

    Pretty accurate depiction how "BDSM lifestylers" who have money, but no 9-5 jobs, see themselves. Very good imagery and description delayed gratification, of pleasure-pain climaxes, and the phenomena of "sub/slave space" from sub's POV. Terrific character development of two main characters; I loved the realism of "Master's" personal struggle/flaw.

    Loved reading how Ted delves into Jo's psyche, peeling away her superficial, yet protective psychological layers--the most difficult and most important aspect of a commited BDSM relationship. Helpful but not necessary to read series in order.

    This is probably in my top 3 list of BDSM psychological and sexual books. Unfortunately, the narrator is not suited for this genre. She often reads the men's lines (commands) with a rise in her voice at the end of the statement, making it more of a question than statement or command. She does, however, deliver a wonderful performance of women's lines.

    This book is well-researched, emotionally, psychologically, and sexually charged, and unlike a lot of "soccer-mom porn," it has a plausible plot. If hardcore, raw BDSM sexuality bothers you, read the gentler D/s book number 1 in the series. I will be looking for more books from this author! Finally, an author who knows her topic and realizes each D/s - BDSM relationship is as different as the people involved! Well done, Riley Murphy!
