Being given the opportunity to be a sex slave at an exclusive Dominant’s club had the independent Sebastian Grant trembling in his boots. Having been introduced to BDSM, he was compelled to find out if he truly was a submissive after all. The only way to know was to put himself in the hands of a real Master, and one night only seemed too good to pass up. The interview and resulting physical should have been clues that he might be in over his head, and the contract stipulations that the lawyer reviews should have clinched the fact.

Two weeks later, when the contract arrives in his mailbox, the paranoia heats up. The three-page confidentiality agreement and the nineteen-page contract, along with separate documents discussing financial arrangements, was intimidating. Having given up control to Chris in the past was nothing like this. With one last chance to back out, would he go for it or not?

This is a very interesting look at the emotional response to BDSM in a dramatic way. Although a novel, it depicts the connection of the emotional response to giving up all physical control in a most delicious way. I was delighted with the book in every way. There is intense, kinky sex, and in the context of being blindfolded and gagged, an emotional bond forms a deep hold quickly. The Masters certainly enjoy their night. But is Sebastian’s question about being a natural submissive really answered? You will have to read and decide that for yourself. It will be worth it.
