(From Goodreads)

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.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…


The Submissive is the first book in the Submissive Trilogy by Tara Sue Me.

Another Fan Fiction in the world of Twilight.  While, I don’t personally see the similarity, or have a problem with fan fiction, some people might want to be forewarned about this.  The Submissive was a little too over the top for me.  The hero Nathaniel was cold and mysterious.  While the reason for his dominant nature is revealed, I can honestly say that it was a pretty bad cop out.  The heroine Abby was suppose to be new to the submissive role, but at times I felt she was more into the lifestyle than Nathaniel was.  She seemed to know exactly what to do from the very beginning.

There are plot holes all throughout the book with some of the plot making little sense and no need to even be in the book.  While the sexy scenes did have some heat, they shouldn’t have to carry an entire novel.

Overall this was another dominant billionaire who just needed another submissive to add to his whipping post.

    Yeah with the popularity of the Twilight books it’s fair to say we will see other books similar to it trying to capitalize on its popularity. Good to know what’s good and what’s bad!
