Richard Booth, best friend of billionaire Cameron Cole and senior dominant at the elite BDSM club Enthrall, will attempt to prove to the women he loves and the enemies he loathes that he is a force to be reckoned with.His life starts to change when Andrea Buckingham, a gorgeous, fledgling Hollywood starlet, coerces him to introduce her to the BDSM subculture and the unique, controversial services offered by Enthrall. The intense pressure of a celebrity lifestyle and having to carry a blockbuster movie has taken its toll on Andrea’s delicate psyche. What this woman needs is discipline and liberation. What she needs is Enthrall. Who she needs...is Richard Booth.
“Being a submissive is about finding your center and letting go. Being in the now. Giving yourself over to your lover. Losing yourself and rediscovering yourself at the same time.”
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book, but I was both hot and cold with the results. Fewings writes one hell of a love scene, and I wouldn’t mind being spanked by Richard Booth. Ever the bad boy, it takes a certain kind of woman to handle all that man.
“Her strength enriched mine. Andrea was the woman I’d had no idea I needed. She’d come into my world emboldened by her tenacious spirit and despite her initial fears she’d managed to move beyond them and save me from myself. Every moment with her felt sacred.”
Andrea Buckingham confused me. I wasn’t sure what her story was or how she came about to be the perfect submissive without ever being a part of the lifestyle prior to her meeting with Richard…I felt she had a spunky attitude and was confident in her sexuality which in turn made the chemistry off the charts between her and Richard.
With him being on the rebound and her being a novice, how could this ever work? Oh, and don’t forget the baggage that he carries in both his life and his heart…
Overall, I enjoyed the read. It felt light despite the thick content of sexual exploration in the BDSM world, but I would have liked it to be a little more steady paced, some parts felt too fast while others felt as if they dragged.
I will definitely check out more from this author, if nothing else, I’m partial to her name. (smile) I hope to go back and see how the entire world of Enthrall came to be with the beginning of the series…but, this book was a good story told as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I missed anything (except the HEA’s of previous characters).
