** Book Review ** SUBMISSIVE SEDUCTIONS by Christine d’Abo




This book definitely had some exciting scenes in it, and the characters grabbed your attention but it felt somewhat empty.  I would have liked to have seen their relationship develop more and bring more substance to the plot.

Liz Coghlan has had secret fantasies for years about being dominated in the bedroom.  Her friend is into the BDSM scene and takes her along to a charity auction at the club she’s a member of.  Liz is going to Buy a Dom for a night to see if this is something she’s truly into.

Gareth Baxter is intrigued when Liz bids and wins him for the night and shows her some beginner fun.  When they hit it off, she wants to continue to play with him, but he feels like she needs someone who is in the frame of mind to mentor a newbie to the scene.  When she finally convinces him to give them a chance, will they find a common ground and enjoy a relationship, or will her doubts of whether she can truly commit to this type of lifestyle end their relationship before it even gets started?

** Book Review ** POWER PLAY by Sophia Henry



I enjoyed the characters of this book, but the writing style was a bit unorthodox.  One minute the main character will bring up something that happened, but then it will be forgotten with no explanation when the current dialogue continues.  It just felt stilted and I think it could have been developed more.  None the less, the concept of the book was interesting, and I don’t regret reading it.

Gabriella Bertucci has been crushing on Landon Taylor for years, but she didn’t think he knew she was alive other than as a sales clerk.  When a crisis occurs in the store while Landon is there, he steps in and helps her keep a cool head.  He checks back in with her a few days later and lets it be known that he’s interested in her.

Gaby has had some difficult times in the past, and doesn’t know if she can trust that Landon really cares about her, but she decides to give in to temptation and go out with him.  Will there be a future between the two of them, or is Landon just playing her until something new comes along?
