Liz, our sub, is cajoled into attending a "Buy a Dom for a Night" charity auction being held at a BDSM club, by her friend and roommate, Connie, who, along with her Dom boyfriend, Stephen, are club members. Liz is new to this scene, intrigued by it, and curious to learn whether or not the issues she's had in previous relationships might have been the result of her unacknowledged submissiveness and her previous partners' lack of dominance.
When Liz sets eyes on Master Gareth, she's more than intrigued, and after placing the winning bid for his services for the night, he introduces her to his world, yet doesn't have sex with her, even though she's perfectly willing. And so begins her education into the lifestyle and her wanting more than one night with Gareth.
This is the point at which I assumed this novel would follow the standard pattern. It doesn't. Instead, Ms. d"Abo explores Gareth's past history, the loss of his wife and sub, Rachel, 4 years earlier, and his inability to move forward emotionally. Liz also has issues, coming to terms with her own needs and her own sexuality. Complicating matters is her boss, who's arrested and indicted for raping and abusing women, and the inevitable office chatter about how sick and depraved the BDSM lifestyle and its participants are. Is she depraved? Is there something wrong with her for craving domination? What does her sexual preference say about her? Is she a freak? Is Gareth? Could they possible ever have a "normal" relationship?
These are only some of the questions that are posed within this steamy tale, and I'm not giving away the answers, but I will recommend it, especially to those of you who are also curious about the lifestyle and were intrigued, but unfortunately misinformed by reading 50 Shades of Gray.
Purchasing a Dom from a charity auction was the wildest thing Liz had ever done. The chance to bring her secret fantasy to life, to be a submissive—even just for one night—was worth any price. And Gareth was everything she wanted in a Master. He touched, he taught, he tantalized. He opened her world to pleasures she’d never imagined. But was it enough?
After one night turned into a blurred-line relationship, Liz’s feelings for Gareth went beyond desire. Yet the kink, no matter how hot, had her wondering if she could ever have a normal relationship. Her Dom was a man with a tragic past and he’d put rules in place from the start. If Liz chose to break them would she lose the intense passion she’d just discovered—as well as the man she loved?...
I love that there is always such an emotional back bone to this Author's stories. She is very good at creating characters and emotions that, I personally connect with and become invested in. I liked the that they start off doing the relationship kind of backwards and then them having to figure out how that turns into the feelings that are growing for each other and how to do the whole dating thing after doing only the BDSM. There are lots of stumbles along the way, but I liked their journey. The BDSM and the sexy stuff are well written, but it is the romance that grows between Liz and Gareth that made this story for me.

The girl is way too flakey. It is reasonable to not know whether the lifestyle is something that she can embrace in her life. But after months, you would think she ould embrace her submissive life fully and have no doubts thatis is part of who she is. Nor would she freak out when other vanilla imbeciles criticize something thwy know about. It is ok not to counter the accusations, but certainly, she would be more secure within herself to know her truth abut her lif and not allow the negative doubts and statements break her trust and need of submission to her Dom.
The majority of the beginning of scenescrtainly touched on aspects of the BDSM life, but then somehere along the way the vanilla turns up and there are no repercussions to her breaking even th simlest rule of being addressed as Master or Sir. His ability to let her have her way after persistent whining and begging is annoying. There are and should be times when no matter how much the submissive begs, she simply is left needing instead of having thesex she wants. Talk about topping from the bottom. Submissives do not always get what they want: especiallly when they get thw Dom's penis in them. Just saying.
I amy be overly critical, but really, after being into this lifestyle for real, the storyline is good. the way it is told and conveyed, at times, just isnt realistically accetable. I apologize for the harsh review. But if you are wrting about this lifestyle, at least either live it for more than just a few months.... or at least, consult with those who are more knowledgeable so the real aspects actually make the story more enticing...even to harsh complaining readers like myself
