William and Aubrey. BDSM-lite. How I giggled the first time I saw Paloma use that phrase, but I do love it. As I got farther into the book though, I loved seeing in action what she meant. Too often I find the balance between those 4 letters and romance in fiction to be lacking. Thankfully that was not the case in "Hold my Hand"- William obviously loves Aubrey, even as he takes her in hand. The simple care and the delight he has in taking care of Aubrey is simply amazing.

I did have a moment's geeking when I saw my name listed in the acknowledgments- thanks, Paloma, that was totally unexpected. I am actively anticipating the second book, "Heal My Soul," getting to see what further William has in store for Aubrey.

Hold My Hand by Paloma Beck: Native Ohioan Aubrey is an attractive and kind woman in spite of being raised by a heartless and cruel father that constantly berated her. Due to encouragement from her sister Evelyn and her own perseverance, Aubrey receives an academic scholarship to Emerson College and escapes her father's hateful clutches. She graduates with a degree in literature and moves onto Boston College to work toward a master's degree. As she pursues her dream of being an author, she works as a barrister to pay her bills. Unfortunately, her low opinion of herself and self-doubt, prevent her from achieving real happiness. That is until she meets William.

William is an extremely wealthy philanthropist and an experienced dominant. When Aubrey accidentally runs into him in front of the coffee shop, there is a mutual chemistry. William asks her for a dinner date and from then on, they are a couple. William wants Aubrey in his bed as his submissive, and with great gentleness, patience and seduction, convinces her to try his lifestyle. His uncanny ability to recognize Aubrey's uncertainties and understand her needs, makes him even more attractive to her. William believes her submissiveness to him will free her from her demons and insecurities. His training methods are gentle and with Aubrey's submissive nature, their relationship thrives quickly. Overtime, they become one with each other and his lifestyle becomes their lifestyle.

This is an intense, emotional narrative that is well-written and passionate. Ms. Beck has an enticing way of describing BDSM scenes which smoothly guides the reader into understanding the lifestyle. I found Aubrey's character to be pathetic and sad, in addition to being submissive. Ms. Beck's voice is calm and careful, which kept me engaged during a couple of harsher scenes that would normally turn me off. If you enjoy erotic romance combined with mild BDSM, give Hold My Hand a read.

I absolutely am enamored with Paloma Beck's writing style and her ability to balance sex and romance. This book tackles the lifestyle of Domestic Discipline with grace and dignity, adding elements of D/s and BDSM but not at the risk of the story. The underlying theme I pick up is tenderness and care. The lead couple is extremely compelling, their back stories are explored and fit the picture of who they are at this point in time and explains their actions and reactions. Their journey to happily ever after is well plotted and satisfying. Oh, and it looks like there is a sequel. I look forward to revisiting this couple and their world.

Wow. I don't have enough good things to say about Hold My Hand. This book really hit home for me in a lot of ways. It's an intense emotional story that will leave you thinking about it for days. I really enjoyed the characters in the story since they are created perfectly with just the right amount of back-story to keep it interesting.

The author presents word-pictures of scenes and events by giving specific details that appeal to the five senses, perfect for our imagination. The book is written in the first person from the perspective of Aubrey. The language is extremely simple and the point of view is very consistent for its time. The book moves at a relaxing pace and is extremely absorbing without being dull or loose. Plot points are tight and the other characters, are complex and completely fleshed out thus adding to the well crafted feel of the book.

Overall, Hold My Hand was an excellent, enthralling read that I highly recommend. It was a fantastic book with a wonderfully creative plot. I got this book as a free gift from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Hold My Hand is an intense, emotional story described as BDSM-lite but I'd definitely consider it to be BDSM-lite+ (they aren't just kinky; this is the story of a d/s relationship). The main character is virtually plucked from her everyday existence working in a coffee shop and progresses quickly into a relationship with a somewhat mysterious and rich (of course)Dom. I was a bit distracted by his use of pet names, but these are interesting characters and their personal journey carries you through this book with ease. I look forward to further development of these characters in the second installment of this series. This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review and I found her writing to be sound and the book enjoyable.

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Can I say THANK YOU!!!! I enjoyed this book alot. I am a big BDSM reader thanks to a certain *cough cough* man who likes Grey. Anway, I have read alot of these kinds of books after my initial reaction to ssaid man. However, I have also found much Much MUCH better writing and truth to the lifestyle since reading him. I have to say it scares me how people are "flocking" to try these things out without a true understanding of what is expected or correct. In many of the BDSM books I have read of late, the people meet this DOM and boom they are thrust into a relationship without building any kind of trust. People this type of relationship is built on trust so to just blindly jump in like some books do is very scary to me. Anyway I wanted to say THANK YOU for the author for showing how to correctly begin a D/s relationship.

William is a dominate and he has become smitten with his coffee shop barista Aubrey. He comes to her coffee shop for months before actually talking to her but always watching her. Well, one day she crashes into him and *boom* spills his coffee. William doesn't ask but informs Aubrey they will be having dinner. Stunned Aubrey says Yes sir which of course pleases William to no end :) William knows Aubrey is a novice in everyway (still has the V card peps). He waits weeks before anything sexual happens because he wants her total and complete trust and faith in him and them. He is always telling her what he is doing and why he is doing things to again...build her trust. I think I loved that even though he was a very dominate male he knew Aubrey was a scared little elf .
