Jamieson writes a good opposites-attract BDSM story. It’s enjoyable to watch her characters’ give and take, and you’ll cheer them on as they try to move closer to compromise and each other.
Tori Markham likes to be in control of all aspects of her life — except in the bedroom. There the high-powered businesswoman is submissive. When she meets the laid-back Dr. Dev Fillmore and the passion between them reaches its natural conclusion, she hopes to share that part of herself with Dev. Dev was raised to believe that only monsters hit women. He has a hard time changing his way of thinking until Tori’s gentle tutelage releases his hidden fears. But it will take all the love and trust building between them to weather the coming storm — and even that may not be enough. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $5.95)
