The Submissive by Tara Sue Me
published by: Penguin Publishing
publish date: February 7, 2013
Abby King has a secret fantasy.
New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.
I've been in a major reading funk. Seriously, nothing at all looks good to me. I decided since I didn't die reading the last romance, that I'd try something else in the genre that I generally avoid. This was the first book that showed up as available at the library. Side note, don't listen to a bdsm audiobook when doing things like going through a drive thru.
The Submissive reminded me of a mash up of 50 Shades and Beauty and the Beast. Nathaniel was a rich single guy that is secretly a dominant. Who does that remind you of?? Abby and Nathaniel start a D/s relationship, complete with contract. Sounds familiar. Then they fall madly in love with each other. (....) As a show of his infatuation with her, he gives her the library as her space in his house. I know I've heard that one before.
The story was sort of eh. The sex scenes were kind of hot though. I don't know that I'd read the rest of this series. It has fairly high ratings on Goodreads so I guess people are liking these kinds of books. I will find one of these kinds of books that doesn't make me scoff at it.
