Publisher's Summary

"Boring? Tiresome? Predictable? We'll see about that." 

When Trish's husband of almost 30 years announces that he's leaving her because she's "boring", she sets out to find an adventure. Her attempt to drink her heartbreak away drops her onto a handsome gentleman who invites her to have an adventure, and Trish can't help but say yes. 

She embarks on that adventure, but her path keeps crossing with that of another - Clint Winstead, a Dominant at the club Bliss and the one person in the place who seems to despise her. And that's fine with Trish. After all, there are plenty of other Doms there who want to play. 

But when an annual event at the club throws Trish and Clint together for two weeks, both of them are horrified, not by the pairing, but by the feelings they're trying hard to deny. As the time passes, it's harder and harder to deny what they know is true - that is, until one nearly-tragic incident that almost changes both their lives irreparably. And when Trish realizes that continuing on with her commitment could cost her the ultimate - her life - she knows that it has to end. But does it? 

Trish is the queen of second chances. But this second chance might just come at a price too high to pay. A little adventure is a good thing, but perhaps she's gotten far more adventure than she can handle. 

Warning: This book contains explicit sexual situations and BDSM themes. It is not suitable for listeners under the age of 18. Listener discretion is advised.

Steamy and erotic! 💋

This was a steamy erotic novel that follows an older woman and her journey towards her very exciting BDSM sex life. I found this quite enjoyable and refreshing to listen to. Anneliese Rennie did quit a good narration. Overall an enjoyable and entertaining listen.

Adventurous Me

It seems strange for an almost 50 year old woman to become a submissive - but she did. I am not sure what to make of this book. For the most part, to me this book was just OK. Anneliese Rennie did an OK job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

BDSM story with many red flags

This is my first audiobook from Deanndra Hall and first narration by Anneliese Ryan.   I love a good BDSM book/audiobook, and I have no issue with a erotic/steamy book.  I expected a little more romance involved (as every other BDSM book I've read has it).  There's very little romance in this book.  And in fact, for me (at least), this book tiptoes over the line between erotic/steamy and sexual abuse.  

The narration was good, although this would definitely be better as a dual narration.

The Good:  I like the premise of a mature woman leaving her 30-year marriage and learning to find herself in the BDSM world.  The sex scenes (of which there are many) are very detailed. 

The Meh:  I wasn't a fan of how most of the Doms seem incompetent or careless (no initial discussion of safewords, not watching subs, no training for anal play, no required condoms/no discussion of going without protection, etc.). 

I know that Clint is supposed to be the most trustworthy Dom, and we're supposed to like him as a main male character, but I just couldn't find him likeable.  He gets angry that Dave doesn't tell her about safewords, but he only asks her safeword AFTER starting anal play.  His primary goal should be to keep a careful eye on his sub and protect her, yet he fails to do so multiple times. His way of "teaching" her that Doms should barter her is really troublesome and completely careless. Later in the book, his excuses for not watching her (twice!) is ridiculous. This guy should not be a Dom, and most clubs would have him blackballed.

Things also seem to move too quickly for Trish, in my opinion.  She needed someone **she could trust** to first sit down with her and explain everything much better (or hell, allow her to do her own research first), rather than giving a 30 second intro, then getting her right into it.  Hell, she doesn't know the basic terminology (sub, bottom, etc.), which worries me for Trish.  During her playtimes, she seems to have feelings of anxiety and even trepidation.  To me, this makes me reconsider how fully consensual these relationships are and how prepared she really is for this (and perhaps that it all went too premature).  

I felt anxious FOR Trish more often than not.  I worried, as a listener, that she was not prepared fully, and this would adversely affect her in the future not only towards the BDSM lifestyle, but towards relationships, sex, and trust in general.  The ending feels very "wrapped up, with a bow," and it's romantic, but it feels out of place.  I would have been happier with a different ending for Trish.

Reinventing yourself

I love when books jump right into the story! Trish is coming out of a bad marriage and decides to work on herself for a change. She doesn’t even realize what jumping into a Dom/sub lifestyle will mean to her, but she enjoys the adventure. Will she find the man that will collar her? Loved her journey and the happy ever after.

Not your average bdsm

This book has a different feel than other bdsm books... it feels more realistic and I really liked that. It has all the things you love about sub/dom, and more.

BDSM Romance

This is the first novella in the Bliss Series, a BDSM Romance. Dave and Trish's story is fun, steamy, fast-paced, and emotional. Trish, an older woman, is funny, naive, sassy, adventurous, and definitely enthusiast! Clint, a younger man, is dark, broken, and dominant. Anneliese Rennie did a fantastic job with the narration. Looking forward to listen to the next installment in the Series, Unforgettable You. #SpectrumAudiobooks

Discovering a new lifestyle.

This is an in depth look into the character development of two damaged souls. There will be several mistakes, some almost deadly, in their road to recovery. Trish is a woman trying to discover her true sexuality after her husband leaves her because he says she is boring. She embarks on an adventure into the world of BDSM. I felt that her training could have been a little more inclusive, but she does seem to be enjoying it and is eventually learning what she needs to know. I loved her enthusiasm and the love she exhibits towards this new life. Clint is a dom but a previous life experience has left him a man that battles against letting another woman into his life. This has left him careless and almost heartless at times. The author has made him a flawed man who reject help until it may be too late. I loved going on this journey with them. Believe me it was a difficult one many times as well as a sexually erotic and explosively hot one. The sex scenes were definitely party melters! Thank you Deanndra Hall for such an engrossing story.

Anneliese Rennie did an awesome job of portraying the emotions of these characters. She definitely knew how to bring the sex scenes to life. I could feel the heartache and denial that Clint was living with. She gave the characters distinctive voices and held my attention from the beginning to the end.

I highly recommend this Audible book. Just remember that these are flawed characters and mistakes will be made.

Definitely an adventure!

With this first in a series, Deanndra Hall brings us a walk down a slightly different path to fulfillment. Stuck in the aftermath of her divorce , Trish talked up an invitation which turns her world around
With intense experiences in this new world, she takes chances denied to her previously. I have to admit that it was a bit of a leap to accept her acceptance of very different behaviour, but I got it. I wasn't quite as convinced of Clint. Some of his behaviour is suspect to say the least and, in a world where trust is premium, I was unsure. However, I enjoyed the journey overall and Annaliese Rennie once again proved to be very listenable! 💖💖💖💖

Taking control of her life at 49!

I really enjoyed this book! Even though this book was about a 49 year old woman becoming a Submissive I still felt like she was finally taking control of her life and telling her ex-husband what for. There were a few parts when I laughed out loud. I got a different kind of vibe from this BDSM story. I enjoyed the characters. The narration was great. I recommend this book.

No romance

Sorry. I loved the premise but there was no romance, no chemistry. Lots and lots of sex but it wasn't very hot, probably because of the lack of relationship between everyone. Random strangers having sex. I have not read a BDSM book that was as horrible to the female as this one and the no condom usage was gross. Clint was awful with absolutely no redeeming qualities. Trish was naive and never should have been put in the situations she was in. I just feel sorry for her.

I really wanted to like this but nope. This was my first book by this author but I'm willing to give another book a chance.

The narrator did a good job for what was given.

Great Story & Narration🎧 An Adventurous🔥Awakening!

I enjoyed this book immensely, it is uniquely original story that grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. It is my first book written by Deanndra Hall, she is a gifted author, the storylines and characters she created are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Trish was married close to 30 years when her husband decides to leave her, telling her she is boring. Instead of staying home and crying about it she goes out with a friend, while out she meets Dave, they start talking and he invites her to a club named Bliss. She goes and walks in to a world different than anything she knows, a world of kink and BDSM. She is intrigued by what she sees, a guy at the bar catches her eye too but he does not stay around to chat with her. Dave explains how things work in the club and agrees to train her to be a submissive until she finds a permanent Dom. This is the start of Trish’s BDSM adventure, an adventure where she learns things about herself and awakens a side to her she never knew she had. Things get even more adventurous when she gets paired with Clint, a Dom who she thinks hates her, for a two week home stay. She is not too thrilled about the pairing but Dave assures her it is a perfect match and she goes with it. Clint is a great Dom and Dave tells him he would be great for Trish. Clint is a long time member of Bliss but because of personal issues he has not had the easiest times. There is great chemistry between him but Clint seems to be holding back to maintain distance, all goes well until it doesn’t. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is nicely plotted, there is a great balance of drama, angst, kink and emotion. Clint has his reasons for holding back, events in his life hardened him and he built walls around his heart, so it turns out Trish is not the only one who needs to learn things, he does as well. Deanndra Hall thank you for the great story and emotional rollercoaster. It is a real treat to get to listen to a book where the lead female is in the prime of her life as well as the other characters.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Anneliese Rennie is a talented and versatile voice artist. She does a fabulous job portraying the characters, humanizing them as she brings them to life, giving each their own voice and personality. I loved her take on Trish, she took the role and made it her own, completely grasping her persona as well as all her emotions which could be heard in her performance. She perfected the roles of the other characters as well, she made it easy to follow along and know who was who. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen.

Total bliss

Adventurous Me is the perfect title for this story as Trish finds her new self. Being told she is boring by her soon to be ex-husband of 30 years, she stumbles upon Dave. Dave takes her under his wind and brings her to Bliss, the local BDSM club, and Trish begins her new journey to finding the real her. When given the chance to spend 2 weeks with a DOM, she takes it and is paired up with the one person who seems to hate her the most, Clint. But she takes on the challenge. Will this be the person to change her life? Clint is a tough character, and even with his back story, it was hard for me to warm up to him. While this relationship is difficult, I will tell you there are several things I loved about the book. I loved that it features a woman who is older, not perfect and she find her self confidence. This for me is everything! The story is steamy and adventurous and I loved her spunk and willingness to find her new self!

Anneliese Rennie brings the characters to life with a fantastic performance. She becomes Trish, and gives us her emotions on her sleeve. From the beginning, where she is put down to her ability to know her own worth, Rennie brings out the feelings with ease. She is talented, able to switch between characters with distinct voices and makes the book easy on the ears.
