Secondly, you throw in the fact that she is falling in love with Lewis, her handler in this network of submissives, the man responsible for whoring her out to others for their whipping pleasure at first had me shocked. At this point I began to truly understand the confidence and pleasure Abby felt in her role as a submissive, and most importantly, her desire to please the man she saw as her Master. While initially shocked, I am a romantic after all, and I was silently begging for more of their relationship and I was rooting for them with each turn of the page. I was watching their love grow all the while Lewis continued to send Abigail into more trying situations, testing her in new ways. WHAT?! I was elated when they shared an open interview- a heart to hear so to speak- and the confessions in that session.
And, finally, I was fully hooked as I read on to find the following year described in such loving detail, satisfying my girly emotions and even arousing me too. This story filled me with a roller coaster of emotions that was just a fascinating experience. I never expected to enjoy this book as much as I did, so I was blown away. I won’t tell you what happens at the end, because that’s just not right, but WOW! It certainly shocked me, so I’ll stop there. Bravo, Mr. Daltrey, you have a new fan.
All I ask is , Please Sir, may I have another?
The author did a great job with the disclaimer, because this book is not for the faint of heart; however, I went into this book with a wide open mind and was not disappointed.
I found this book page-turning, intense and intriguing from the first page and throughout the book. The intensity of the story and the extreme masochistic nature of Abby, the main character, was truly insightful and exciting to read.
I have read many BDSM novels. None of them have them have touched on the raw and explosive nature that Mr. Daltrey has captured in these characters. The development of the relationship between Master and submissive is remarkable and nothing like I have ever read.
The story is fast moving, but you have the opportunity to develop an attachment to the characters. The intensity of the story will leave you flipping the pages to find out more about Abby's experiences and the development of the relationship between herself and Lewis.
As stated, I have never read anything like this and I am in awe of the author and his technique to draw you into a world that may seem to be taboo to most, but is a way of life and desire for many people.
I recommend this book to anyone with an open mind, it is a reading experience that I will not soon forget and has let me see into a side of BDSM that not many have ventured into through mainstream romance/erotic writing.
Very well done Mr. Daltrey...you are a Master of Intrigue and Enlightenment and I look forward to reading many more of your books.
The story of Abby, a masochist, unfolds in such a unique way that I felt compelled to follow her through the book to the end no matter how graphic the story was. Abby is not looking for hearts and flowers, she is looking to fulfill the unbelievable desire for pain and humiliation that she cannot ignore. I'll note it again here, the first couple of her dates were hard to read but all of a sudden I found myself drawn to her and could not put the book down without seeing what was next for her.
Lewis is Abby's Dom, or as I saw it her pimp. At the beginning of the story I absolutely did not like the man and found myself cursing out loud whenever it was interview time. However, that faded as the story went on and I was drawn to him as much as I was Abby. By the end of the book I was in love with both Abby and Lewis. I was not in love with the masochist and the pimp, but in love with this beautiful woman and sensitive nurturing man that I had found lied within both of them, behind their sexual desires.
I have read a lot of BDSM books in the past year or so and while some of them provided the hearts and flowers, others were pretty raw and graphic and focused more on the lifestyle. Testing the Submissive, at least to me, did both in a way that no other book has done. "Please do NOT buy or read this if you are offended by graphic sexual descriptions including sexual violence." That being said, I highly encourage you to purchase it and proceed with an open mind. Look past some of the physical acts themselves and you will see something that is wonderful and beautiful between 2 people that absolutely deserve the hearts and flowers we all want!
