Editorial Reviews


RT Book Reviews gave Lauren Jameson's September book Linger a 4.5 star review, saying "Jameson's third In Vino Veritas book is the kind of searing, emotionally wrenching story that fans have come to crave. She fearlessly explores every type of desire, as well as the deep scars and fears that drive her characters. Her honesty makes this story compelling on a number of levels. Not for the faint of heart, the journey of this submissive alpha and his wonderfully strong, devoted dominant- and their incredibly complex, redemptive bond- is one that readers will not soon forget."


“Tantalizingly sexy and shockingly intense.…Jameson does an excellent job making this story feel original and daring.”—Romantic Times

“The kind of erotica I really love.…The journey that Lauren Jameson takes you on in this book is fantastic. The writing is wonderful, and the story is solidly romantic and erotic.”—Bookish Temptations

“Sultry and alluring...A better-written and actually classy variation of the Fifty Shades of Grey madness.”—Books à la Mode

“Dramatic ups and downs.…Readers who enjoyed Beth Kery’s Because You Are Mine will likely find this an even stronger serial.”—Library Journal

“A well-written story that will open your mind to a whole new level of control and submission.”—SinfulReads

From the Author

Dear Reader,
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out Linger. This story is my favorite that I've ever written... I had never intended to write a story with an alpha male submissive, but Scarlett and Logan popped into my head fully formed and demanded to have their story told.
I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I loved writing it...
Welcome back to In Vino Veritas!
Lauren Jameson

Linger is the third in the In Vino Veritas series by Lauren Jameson. Although it is part of a series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

Mistress Scarlett Malone is spending her last night in Las Vegas at In Vino Veritas, a high-end sex club where she has trained as a Dom. After tonight, she’s leaving for a year-long veterinary internship in Montana, and then plans on coming back to open an animal hospital just outside the city. What Scarlett expected to be a predictable night becomes anything but when she chooses Logan Brody as her sub for the evening. The instant connection she feels with him is frustrated by the fact that although Logan is a submissive in the bedroom, he’s clearly alpha in every other aspect of his life. The need to reign in him is both challenging and arousing to the point that she briefly regrets her decision to leave the city and the lost opportunity to teach Logan a thing or two about what a true submissive is.

Logan Brody is a veterinarian who makes his home in the wide open spaces of Montana. He rarely leaves the comfort and solitude of the country, but when the type of release he can only find at In Vino Veritas, his best friend’s sex club, becomes too great, he ventures into the big city. Tonight, the Dom who chooses him is like no other woman he’s ever encountered. The attraction is way beyond sexual – there’s a connection he can’t explain, and when she pushes him almost to his limit, Logan finds himself regretting that one night is he’ll have with her.

Can you hear where this is going? Of course you can, but please don’t be misled into thinking that Linger is any kind of predictable. The author had me anxiously turning pages to see where the story was going.

I’m kicking myself for this one. I’ve had ‘Linger’ on my Kindle for months just sitting there, and for some odd reason I would never pick it up. Then a couple days ago I read a female Domme story that was just ok. It gave me a craving for more so I went in search of another and I remembered I had this one. It seems female Dommes are hard to write. I can only think of a couple off the top of my head that I’ve really enjoyed… but now I get to add a new one to the list because I loved every second of this one.

Dr. Logan Brody is a submissive in the bedroom but an alpha everywhere else. Living out in rural Montana, Logan doesn’t get to play with his submissive side as much as he’d like. From time to time he’ll make a trip into Vegas to visit a BDSM club to get his fix, but only stays a short time before he heads back home. The city is suffocating and he knows living in open spaces is the only way he can survive, but no one would want to live out in the middle of nowhere with him.

Scarlett Malone is a young Domme but knows what she is doing. I actually found her to be wise beyond her years, but growing up in the foster system can do that for a girl. She is celebrating the start of her new life. She just graduated veterinarian school and is about to start a year-long internship, so she is going to enjoy a final night before she heads out of town. Two people thinking this is a one-night stand soon find out they will be living together for the next year.

God I loved this book. Like SUPER loved this book. The struggle between Scarlett and Logan was sweetly beautiful. It’s hard for me to get down with a submissive male because we all love our alphas but Logan was so submissive alpha.

Scarlett Malone is looking for a one-time thing, an encounter that will fulfill her desire for pleasure with no strings attached. Logan Brody comes to In Vino Veritas to have his needs met in a way that the outside world wouldn't understand. Life as they know it is about to change in a very big way.

"He reminded her of a tethered animal, restrained but only just. A heavy rock settled on top of the butterflies in her gut when she realized that the chances of this man being her type--being sexually submissive--were slim indeed."

So, when I had the chance to read LINGER by Lauren Jameson, I wasn't too sure what I would be getting. I've read books that deal with the world of BDSM, and have become acquainted with lots of super-alpha men. What I hadn't experienced, though, was the point of view of a Domme, a woman trained as a Mistress, in this lifestyle. Let me start by saying that the heat between Logan and Scarlett is HOT. Every interaction that they have is just scorching, and while Logan is definitely mega-alpha outside the bedroom, when they step away from their everyday life, Scarlett is the one calling the shots. Scarlett is a benevolent Mistress, but she's determined to break down every wall that Logan has put up, and he is doing his darnedest to make sure that she will not breach the one final part of him that keeps him from total submission. But Logan needs to submit, in order to help escape the memories that keep him from being free of his past, and Scarlett is going to bring him over, come hell or high water.

"Scarlett held his gaze, her heart pounding in her throat. She might have been fairly new to the games of dominance and submission, but it was still far from her first time in this club. And yet she'd never felt attraction like this before.
