(W)REC(K) A BOOK: Club Shadowlands

Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she's sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she's a professional woman--an accountant--and surely isn't a submissive... is she?

Master Z hasn't been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She's intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can't resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within.

- Goodreads

This was a really good book about Doms and subs. For one thing, I liked that throughout the story, there would be small information dropped about what a good Dom should be, and even the author gives a little note in the beginning about choosing the right Dom and being careful, because it is a very intense relationship that can go either really well or really horrible, if done wrong.

I've read books with BDSM before (50 Shades! woot-woot!) and a lot of them were about Doms and/or subs who had tumultuous pasts. Master Z, however, is a psychologist who doesn't like vanilla sex but doesn't have the need to punish his subs. He's not so much a tortured guy as he is a guy who simply likes dominating. It's a good thing, too, I think, because Jessica is so new to the BDSM world and isn't completely (or at all, really) comfortable with admitting her inner sub preferences, let alone anything sexual being displayed out in public.

Her time with Master Z was a very strong thing that started out unexpectedly and slowly grew into something more as he explored with her everything sex stands for. Sex was boring before she met him, and now she knows why, though she's a little reluctant to admit anything at first. It wasn't really even 'just sex', either. She realized her feelings for him and he with her, and overall it was just a really sweet D/S (can I do that?) read. <3

I mean, I really liked that it was a sweet story while still having that intense Dom/sub relationship. ^_^ Does that make sense? I think it does. I recommend this to those who- well, like reading about this stuff lol. I might even say that for those who are slowly starting to read about this, read this! It's soft and sort of an 'entry level', you could say. The worse that happens to her is getting paddled six times for breaking the rules. :P Jessica's a normal modern working woman with some discomforts about her body image and soon gets to enter her own Wonderland where everything that she is, is beautiful and something to be proud of.

Happy Reading!

PS-Galahad the cat takes the cake, even if he only had three pages of spotlight <3
