Can the sub teach the Dom to play?

Natural submissive Gracie Miller thought she had found her other half in Cade Jameson. Not only did he help her through a difficult time in her life, in the bedroom he brought her more pleasure than she could have ever imagined. They seemed perfect for each other.

Cade knew what he wanted in the bedroom. Gracie brought out his domineering

I love a good BDSM theme. Throw in second chances, perceived rivals, and discovering all that you were meant to be for yourself and your lover – there you have the plot of this book. Gracie and Cade shared a past when they were still too young to understand what they wanted let alone needed from each other. Cade was afraid of being too rough with Gracie after a bondage incident gone wrong so he broke off the relationship. Heartbroken Gracie ends up with an older dominant who recognizes her longi ...more

Its good story but i don't enjoy read this like another Ella Jade book.
sex scene is good, but i always feel bad about heroine (Gracie).

Gracie, she is young woman fall in love with Hero (Cade) get sweet relationship like normal couple and then they broke up because he think his act in bedroom to rough for Gracie who innocent at time.

So Gracie leave him and her past life for over 2 years. When They apart, Garcie learn to became submissive with another guy who her Dom.

This was my first story by the talented Ella Jade and it will not be the last! Great, sensual and lovely short BDSM story. I haven't read any book from Ms. Jade, so I didn't know what to expect, but the blurb seems so intriguing and passionate, that I couldn't let this one pass!

Cade, who thought he was too domineering, ended the exquisite relation he had with the love of his life, Gracie. He was afraid that his behavior was too reckless with her and tried, in a way, to save her from himself. Whe

When Cade told Gracie to leave, that is exactly what she did and Cade was devastated. He hired a private investigator to locate her but no avail. So when she shows up two years later, a cascade of emotions run through him. Gracie is more then pleased that Cade could still want her even after all this time. When Gracie left, she didn't know what to do or where to go. She ended up in New York visiting a friend and there is where her life was changed. She meets Martin and the two of them worked tog ...more

I read this book in just a couple of hours. Normally, I am not a BDSM fan, but because of who the author is, I gave it a shot. Once again, Ella Jade did not disappoint. While the aspects of BDSM are there, the romance between the characters is what drew me in.

The main characters:

Gracie is our heroine and a natural submissive.

Cade is our hero. He is the would be Dom if he would recognize it.

Martin is Gracie's Master and teacher in the BDSM lifestyle.

The story:

Gracie and Cade have a history t

I have recently discovered Ella Jade and have found her books to be "unputdownable".This book was no exception. This book was very different then the other books I have read by her. Unlike the unusual love triangles I have been used to by her (through my reading choices, not because she over does them), this is a Finally Ever After tale and I do so love those. Do not let the BDSM in the synopsis fool you. Yes, this book has some major heat with BDSM elements, but this book is a truly super sweet ...more

This is a good short read. It starts out like it is going to be dark but then when Cade is reunited with Gracie things looks up. Gracie needed to find herself but Cade blaming himself for an accident was not how she was goiing to do that. Cade didn't understand exactly how to dominate safely and Gracie didn't know how to submit fully. When Gracie came back and was showing Cade what she learned was wonderful until he got jealous. Once he fully realized what she went through to be with him he turn ...more

i wanted to like this more... Honestly though the end came to soon. I found it highly unrealistic for Cade to swith points of view so fast. He goes from being so pissed ( rightly so) over finding gracie on her knees for her old master after one fight with Cade- a fight that came about when Cade finds out that the Master she supposedly left to come back to him, still controls part of her life - seriously, in what world besides the heroine' s mind is he suppose to be okay with that, to Cade being ...more

Another fab book by the lovely Mrs Jade.

From page one you are thrown in to the story by the characters getting straight down to business; and I'm not just talking about the fact that Gracie's mission is clear from the moment she steps off that elevator. Heck no, Make Me Stay is sexy from the get go. From the moment Cade and Gracie are reunited their attraction sizzles off the page and straight away you find yourself routing for their HEA.

Fans of Mrs Jade must give this book a read. It's total
Jan 31, 2016 Shelly rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition

If you enjoy a good BDSM book then look no further. This was a great story about growth and learning about yourself. Gracie was devastated when Cade told her to leave. Two years with a Master, plus therapy for issues with her childhood and Gracie was ready to get Cade back. Cade wasn't sure he would ever see Gracie again until one day she walks back into his life. Can he be the man she needs and wants? Will they have a HEA? Read this book to find out. A must read.
My rating is more like 3 1/2 stars. And not because it was short. For two people who love each other sure have an odd way of showing it. You don't hold on to someone from your past and expect the person you love to be ok with it. You don't give the person you love an ultimatum. While I like the idea of the story, I don't like any of the characters. Gracie is selfish. Cade is just...flat. And Martin needs to mind his own business.

I can't really put into words how much I love this book. I loved it but struggled with the genre. For a more thought provoked review or slightly more at least check out my blog at

It's been a long week and I seem to have lost all coherent thought.

Another great story by Ms. Jade. I love her writing and this was no exception. My only negative would be I wish her stories were longer....I never want the book to end.

This was a quick read. It was hot and steamy as well. It was a different take on the Dom/Sub subject. I like that it was something different. Definitely worth reading.
