Publisher's Summary

Wicked confessions - Startling secrets

My name is James Collier and I am a Dominant. I live north of London in Hampstead Village, and with the help of Maggie Carpenter I'm delighted to share my more notable experiences. 

Being a Dominant is not something that happened one memorable day. No light bulb went off, no great epiphany rattled through my soul. It was a growing awareness, and when the first experience fell into my lap - literally - it was a confirmation of everything I'd suspected about myself.   

This is not a biography, but a recounting of some of my more romantic, debauched, and whimsical dances inside the decadent world of Dominance and submission. Romance, sexy surprises, and learning curves offer a rare glimpse into my wonderfully wicked life. If you enjoy salacious and sometimes outrageous naughtiness, you'll love this book. 

Publisher's note: This book contains lewd and licentious scenes. As James would say, you have been warned....

This narrator will melt your knickers!

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.

An interesting insight.

Would you listen to I Am a Dominant again? Why?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Narrator was perfect for this story

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.

Perfect, Wonderful & Amazing Real Story

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! 😊

Beautiful, mesmerizing voice

James Collier brings us an excellent and convincing performance in I Am A Dominant. Maggie Carpenter writes an engrossing story woven with tales of our dominant's experience from the beginning of his discovery of liking being sexual dominant to a man responsible in his desires as a dominant and caring for his submissives. Brilliant and enjoyable. The narrator is convincing and with such an alluring and sexy voice, this story just came to life.

redhat queen

I really enjoyed this book. First I love male narrators. Second what a story. I give James credit for telling his story about being a dominant. It was very interesting that he told us about his subs. How he found each one from his first to his last. I think it took a lot of courage to tell this story.

Incredible!!

Hooked from the moment Rob Groves started speaking!! He might well be the perfect man to bring James Collier to life. as you move through the tale of different women James has been involved with, he teaches us by relating not only the wildly erotic events of what he did with them, but the lessons he learned from each. As a dominant myself, it was nice to see someone else's perspective since so many romance books are written from the submissive POV. Loved every single syllable! I really hope the make a part 2 of this.

Learning to be a dominant!

I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. I really enjoyed this look into a dominant's life. It was insightful looking into the growth of James. He evolves into a dominant who tries to makes his submissive's lives better. He reflects upon the things he did right and wrong. Once again honesty, truth, and open communication are key ingredients to a successful relationship. The narrator takes us on James's journey and makes the listener a part of this adventure. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Interesting reading~

I found the story captivated my mind. I always wondered how one realizes he is a dominant. The telling of how James discovered his dominant nature and sharing some of his personal experiences was rather intriguing. The naughty, the romance .....I can't articulate my thoughts since I'm not sure where I stand. I found nothing wrong with what comes natural to some and yet wonder what it might be like. James enlightened us on some of the techniques. An open mind is all you need to read this and get a small peek into the mind of a dominant. Definitely a fascinating read~

wouldn't recommend

A rather vulgar narcissist rant from a man recalling what he views as his greatest exploits through very rose coloured glasses. Gives no insight or depth to a once taboo subject which is quickly becoming mainstream.

Wow.

I really liked listening to this book. It was very arousing and informative to see a Dominant person describe through their eyes. The narrator was clearly spoken and easy to understand.

Don't Miss This Book

This is only the second audio book I've had the pleasure of listening to.
I found it compelling listening from the Dominant point of view.
The vivid description of each of his submissive's and how to managed their individual needs made me feel like I was actually present.This book was erotic with compelling sex scenes.I was surprised at the emotions it stirred in me.James came across as a gentleman but he was no pushover.This is an unique story with interesting characters.
I wound not hesitate to recommend this book.
