Samantha Drake is a Dominant. Yes, you got that right, a Domme. She is independent. She likes to be in control. She is a well paid attorney in Las Vegas and one sexy lady. Whenever she decides to take a sub it is always with the understanding that it is only about the sexual relationship and nothing more; nothing romantic. EVER. To her, with her being the Dominant, romance can’t work. Then she meets the submissive, Thomas Hunt, a younger, scorching hot doctoral student looking for a Domme. When he moves in to become her submissive, his playful, sexy as hell nature gives her pause; she may have met her match. He pushes HER boundaries (she even feels a little insecure with the age difference) and slowly starts to tear down those walls she has around her heart, but not without a price.
From the very first page you are always on your toes. It is full of intrigue, a little suspense and loads of hot, steamy, OMG-did-they-just-do-that sex. It is hot! Sam knows how to write a sex scene. Well, let me say, Sam knows how to write, period. She (yes, the author is female) even makes you wonder if the book does not have some truth to it since the character’s name and her name are the same (Sam is short for Samantha.) But, then again, is not that part of her intrigue, using her name as the character name to make us wonder? Even though, the book is BDSM related, you don’t see a lot of that in here. It is light in nature.
The secondary characters add suspense, flair, laughter and some of them you just love to hate. There is a couple I want to throat-punch. Some of them you fall in love with so easily. I want to get my hands on Thomas’ mother and hug her neck; she is so sweet and fun. Sam’s dad, on the-other-hand… I want her housekeeper, Evan. I mean a gay former WWF-type professional wrestler as a housekeeper? Yes, he is fun to have around. With the type of law that Samantha and her partner practice, they deal with some high-powered, sometimes unsavory people and this gives the book some suspenseful situations and occasionally leaves you questioning what will happen next.
However, the book is not really about all of that, it is about tearing down emotional walls and the blurred lines between Dominance and submission. It is about learning to trust and let go. It is an emotional journey watching these two fight for this relationship and sometimes I want to *spank* Samantha. (smile) It is baby-steps for her, while Thomas wants to scale the wall.
I am looking forward to the next book. I could have used it right now, this story is so good. I am really impressed with this being a debut book from this author. High-five, Sam!
The sex scenes were smoking hot and complimented the story, rather than 'being' the story. I liked that they were both switches, even though it was clear Samantha was the dominant one of the two. It was great she was willing to bottom and put her trust in Thomas's hands, something she didn't find easy to do.
My nit-pick, I got sick and tired of hearing about how much this guy liked to eat! Yes we all have to eat, some people have huge appetites, but gosh damn don't ram that fact down my throat...pun intended :)
My Grumble, and what knocked off half a star, the stupid cliff-hanger, and the fact this story is told entirely from Sam's POV.
I'm on the fence if I will read book 2 or not. From the titbit I read, it is just a recap of this story but in Thomas's POV and with him becoming the dominant one in the relationship
Welcome to Las Vegas, and the life of Samantha Drake: lawyer by day, Domme by night. Except that Vegas is the city that never sleeps and it doesn’t take long for her two worlds to begin blending.
With her defenses locked up tighter than Fort Knox, Sam faces her biggest challenge when she decides to let Thomas Hunt inside her armor. Little by little, she starts relinquishing control to her playful young submissive as he takes his fledgling steps into “Domhood.” What she isn’t prepared for, is exactly what that means or how to separate her growing romantic feelings from the possessive, domineering ones.
When things start going wrong in her professional life, it’s unclear who Sam can really turn to for help. Does she follow her heart, or her head? It seems every decision she makes leads to pain for someone else. Only time will tell when her own life ends up on the line.
Roulette will sweep you up and take you an adventure across the pages. Don’t trust anyone, and be prepared to be left chomping at the bit for more when you reach the end. The next installment in this series is due out in September I believe, and I can’t wait to see where Hunt takes us next.
