About the Author

When you do something effortlessly and people commend you continuously, you have found your gift. That's what I tell people all the time. And it's true. I get story. I always have. I started writing when I was 8 on a Smith Corona (the electronic kind -- I'm not THAT old). I wrote stories in every spiral notebook I had. Eventually, I graduated to a Mac (yes, I'm one of THOSE people). I imagined new worlds, emotional conflicts, and HEAs while I waited at stoplights or wandered the grocery store. But here's the thing: I didn't just dream it up and write it down -- I critiqued what I read. I knew when ideas were good, and when they stunk. I ran writing groups, judged creative contests, and eventually got two graduate degrees in writing. That's right: I love it that much. So here I am, years later, writing kickass heroines and devastating good guys, along with some mystery and vampires thrown in (I promise: THEY'RE COMING). And what's really cool? I do what I love. Wanna write a success story for your life: I promise you, that's it. Do what you love. And hopefully, you can make a living at it too. That's the golden ticket, Charlie. And chocolate doesn't hurt, either...

The main character in this book, Lux Trace, has set herself up in her work as a Dominatrix and with great friends who look out for her. But you know from the start something's missing in her life. It's funny how sometimes it takes someone new to crack your carefully constructed protective shield and help you confront the demons of your past. The gorgeous young Scotsman, Fin, plays that role in Lux's life, making for a thrilling story.

The biggest strengths of Inside the Lines are the witty, entertaining dialogue, which crackles with life without going too snarky, and the sex scenes, which occur in the context of the story. They flow naturally, and are essential to the plot while also helping reveal elements of Lux's character.

The characters are well developed and the story moves quickly, never lagging. After getting a taste of Lux's childhood travails late in the book, I found myself wanting to know more. What happened in her childhood clearly made her who she is now. I understand this is the first book in a planned series, so I hope more of Lux's childhood will come out in the next book -- something to look forward to.

Inside the Lines by Ally Bishop is a book you don’t want to miss out on. Lux Trace ( AKA ) Mistress Hathaway is a Dominatrix. She makes her living helping men and women live out their own fantasies. She's not one to submit, and has always been the one in control.

As a professional Dominatrix she follows three simple rules:
1. Never let them disobey you.
2. Never let them touch you.
3. Never have sex with them.

At least she used to follow them…

Until a meeting with a client she's trying to help, puts her face to face with a Sexy as Sin Scottish man by the name of Fin Mackenzie. Lux has a plan for her life and it doesn't include a complication with the likes of Fin.

Automatically Lux realizes she's in trouble of losing her heart, because no man has affected her this way. However, Lux has issues that make having a relationship hard. She always pushes them away never letting them in. These issues stem from a less than desirable childhood.

Will she give up control just this once and see where this might go with Fin??

Fin Mackenzie is every girl's dream come true, from his shy boyish smile, to his smoking hot body and his sexy Scottish burr. (Yeah I was definitely swooning over this man).

Relationships are hard, as Fin and Lux are about to find out.

At times, it was hard to follow with the way Fin talked, but, I urge you to take this journey with Lux and Fin and find out if the Dominant can learn to submit to the man who holds her heart.

This was truly an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more of this series. I'm giving this book 4 stars.

One thing is true; we are all shaped, in one way or another, by our childhood experiences. Lux Trace, our main character, is no exception. She suffers, in silent, from deep seated insecurities which were brought on by her unhappy and unhealthy adolescence. Over the years she has built walls around her heart. Lux’s entire adult life has been spent in the world of BDSM. Becoming Dominatrix “Madam Hathaway” has given her power, control, stability and respect, which in turn makes her feel safe.
On a chance encounter, Lux meets Fin MacKenzie. This Scottish man is unbelievably handsome, extremely confident and his Scottish accent makes him irresistible. As their relationship advances, her instabilities surface; thus making her start to doubt who she is and what she has become.
Will their love be able to withstand the storm that is about to hit?
Author Ally Bishop has written a tasteful, classy, erotic tale filled with emotion. The plot is strong and relatable making this book, a true winner. 4.8 Stars

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

INSIDE THE LINES is a play on the senses. The story line and characters are very well-developed. Lux Hathaway is a professional dominatrix. When one of her partners cannot make it to help out with a client, he asks Fin MacKenzie to substitute for him. Things start to get hot between Fin and Lux, but that will change. Lux always pushes away anyone who gets too close when she is in a relationship. She will have to find a way to repair the damage she has done. I loved reading this book and cannot wait to see what else Ally Bishop has in store for us in the next book. I give INSIDE THE LINES 4/5 stars. I also recommend this book to everyone.

Format: Paperback
A good, fun book that doesn't insult the reader's intelligence or their ability to be mature about sexual content. I tend to get tired of constant euphemisms and it takes away from being able to get lost in a story. Lux is a strong woman who knows exactly who she is and what she wants until she meets sexy Scotsman Fin. But she doesn't question who she is so much as whether she really knew who she was to begin with. And she takes steps to make sure she learns who she is and does the best thing for herself, not just whatever she can to get her man. There's good character development with both Lux and Fin as well as the surrounding cast of characters. There's a good story arc taking us through who Lux is and how the two meet up and their relationship evolves. And the level of sexual content is just right - not so much that the story and/or character development suffer, but enough to keep you aware that you're reading erotica...and want to keep turning the pages.

Nicely done, Ally! I'm looking forward to the next installment =)
