Publisher's Summary

Adam Rawn wasn't looking for a sub when he went to the new club, Chained, with his friend, Rick Winter. Not exactly anyway. But he wasn't adverse to it. Instead, what he found was a Domme with an air of mystery about her. Mistress Angela has described herself as being new to the scene but quite sure that she was a Domme; Master Adam can't shake the feeling that maybe there are some hidden desires that Mistress Angela is unaware of. After all, he's never been attracted to a Domme before, so perhaps she's a submissive at heart and just doesn't realize it yet. She wouldn't be the first person attracted to the scene who didn't understand exactly what their needs were.

Angel has been interested in BDSM for a while, but her friends who would understand her desires are several states away, and although she's finally ready to explore her fantasies, she feels she has to do so on her own. Her closest friends in town are guys who would never understand, and her best friend, Leigh, already has a boyfriend - a rather territorial one. Nervous about going to a BDSM club, afraid that she might be putting herself in a bad situation as an unattached submissive who's completely new to the scene, Angel decides that the safest way to explore being in public is as a Domme. That way, she can get used to the club scene and watch out for common pitfalls, keeping herself in a position of power until she feels comfortable enough to know what she's doing. Although she eventually wants to join Stronghold, the club closest to her home and with the best reputation, she makes her debut into the BDSM scene at Chained, a new club that's far enough away she feels safe enough to lie about her preferences and present herself as Mistress Angela until she's done some exploring.

When Angel finally feels comfortable enough to make her way to Stronghold as a submissive and Master Adam recognizes the "Domme" that he's been obsessing over, the result is explosive.

Very good story!!

I don’t normally listen to BDSM nor contemporary stories but I was pleasantly surprised. This has opened my eyes to a new genre that I have be skipping. I am glad I took the time to listen to this story. I now have to find more stories like this to add to my library. Thank you Golden for opening my eyes with this story.

An Awesome Audiobook Highly Recommend

I love the dynamics between Adam and Angel. Always second guessing themselves and each other. The characters in this book are so well developed that as the story unfolds you feel like you're among friends. Each are memorable, knowing that there will be more books to come I think is cool.
Now I can’t wait to listen the next book!
Highly recommend

Good Character Building and Detail

If you could sum up The Sassy Submissive in three words, what would they be?

Realistic story about someone's entrance and exploration of 'The Scene' with a realistic romance intertwined. Some definitely hot and steamy elements along with sweet.

Any additional comments?

I was a bit happily surprised at the length of this book (15+ hours), which often leads to good story and character development. Golden Angel did just that with her attention to detail. My only critique (and it probably more of a personal one than to the masses), is that it almost took too long for the couple to finally get together. After the very first time they met, it took another 3 hours of listening for them to meet again. That is a lot of anticipation! There was a bit of repetitiveness in the character's thoughts (e.g. a review of their behavioral intentions) throughout the book that I thought were unnecessary but overall, I was happy with the reasoning behind why characters were doing certain things which lead to a more realistic story in the end. Great job, Golden Angel! I would definitely listen or read her other books based of the good quality of writing and storytelling.

I loved this book !

I loved listening to Adam and Angel as they learn about each other and fall in love . I was laughing so hard that my grandson came running into my room to see what was so funny. When I told him I was listening to a book he said no book is that funny but he is so wrong ! I think Golden Angel is such a talented author . I love all her book I've read so far and I'm thinking this may be the best one so far ! If you don't like spanking then this book isn't for you but if you like sexy love scenes then you should read this anyway. It's so worth buying . This is one of those books I'll probably listen to over and over again! Ok Angel when is it Rock's turn ?

Some Hot Scenes with average story

**I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.**

It started out slow, but wasn't a bad story. Some of the scenes were hot! 1st in series, so a lot of characters introduced.

Great start to the Stronghold series

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sassy Submissive to be better than the print version?

Tough question! I have read the entire Stronghold series including prequels (the Venus series) and enjoyed them very much. The audio edition is a welcome addition which is a different, and equally enjoyable way, to revisit an old friend.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Angel! she was so straight forward, brave, likeable and yes sassy. I also liked that she wasn't a wilting violet needing to be rescued but rather a strong capable women going after what she wanted.

Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favourite?

I have a soft spot for the gentle southern drawl Roberto Scariato used for Angel's friend Mike ...

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It reaffirmed my belief that you can sort almost anything out if you are prepared to be honest and talk about it

Any additional comments?

I'd thoroughly recommend the entire Stronghold series!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The second scene that Angel and Adam have in the dungeon of Stonghold

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Particularly moved by the end of Adam and Angel first scene at stronghold when Olivia and Jerad take over aftercare of Angel
