Haunted for years by dreams of a savage, amber eyed Dominant with lips so enticing my soul ached in frustration and lust. None of the Dominants at Genesis, my local BDSM club ever stirred me in such blistering ways. While I tried to fill my submissive desires vicariously through interactions at the club, I attempted to convince myself it was enough. But it wasn’t. My dream ...more

The story took you from curiousity, intrigued,emotional, with a bit of tearful moments and then to sexual. If you are debating reading this,then read the sample for your kindle, it g

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is the first in a series, and does a good job of setting the scene and identifying the key characters in the Club. This is Emerald (aka Julianna's ) story, although through her we are introduced to the leading players at the Club. Once we get to meet the biggest player, the race is on to get things straightened out, and on course. I felt greatly aggrieved for Julianna, but she seemingly chooses to forgive and enjoy ho
This book was a really pleasant surprise.

I came across it by accident, and what made me decide to read it was that I needed a BDSM-themed book which had a title beginning with the letter E. Given my reasons for reading it weren't much, neither were my expectations. Then I started reading, and very soon I realized this would be a book I would enjoy. Thankfully, I was right!

The book is entirely written from the heroine's perspective. There had been several times when that sentence meant the book w

*I received a free copy to read & review for Wicked Reads Review Team*

I was totally expecting the "normal" BDSM club type book, but am happy to say this book wasn't that!

Emerald is an unattached submissive who spends most of her free time at Genesis, a BDSM club. She's actively hunting and hoping for a Dom to come in and swoop her off her feet: this is where the similarities end (to the "regular" club books I've read). Personally, I liked Emerald from the 1st page and wanted to read her stor

I am soooo sorry that I let this book sit on my kindle for over a year before I was finally able to read it.
Jenna Jacob is an amazing writer, pulling you in and sucking you down until you're consumed with the desire to keep reading. Then your emotions are high and you're eager for the bliss of satisfaction and surrender.
Reading Emerald's story brought smiles, laughter, love, tears of joy, frustration, and sadness. The story will strangle you and then blissfully release you. Highly recommend this

I liked this book by the female MC annoyed me on so many occasions. Her indecisiveness really got on my nerves. I mean for somebody who had been in the lifestyle that long you'd think she'd know a good thing when she saw it.

I read this in one sitting, it was good, really good. For a long time I was looking for a book in this genre that surprised me and with this I found it.

What I like was that it wasn't just sex and BDSM, it was much more. I was about love, finding your self. And it has a little bit of paranormal aspects to it.

My problems and the reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 were toward the ending, the relationship developed a little to fast for my liking and the main female character was a little annoying an

I'm waffling between 3.5 & 4 stars here so I just rounded up. I enjoyed this book. I just bought it basically because of the cover. This author seems fairly well versed in the BDSM lifestyle & I think this is the intro to a series about the Doms of a club called Genesis is some unknown city a la Cherise Sinclair. I like this author's writing style better than Ms. Sinclair's. It's more cerebral but still comparable to the level of smut contained in CS's books.

Author; Jenna Jacob

What would you do if you dreamed of the perfect Dom and were never able to find him in reality? What if you had trained for years to be a submissive, only to find the isolation impossible to bear?

Julianna dreams every night of her dream Dom and wakes to the loneliness of her reality. Becoming a sub was not what she expected. After being hurt by one in experienced Dom, she falls for another, only to be s

Genesis, a private BDSM club where Julianna a.k.a Emerald donated her time processing the patrons for a night of wicked pleasures,without a Dom is starting to become a bit embarrassing.

Sir Drool was so decadently captivating, I would often wake to find my covers tangled around my feet and my fingers plunged deep inside my slick, quivering sex. Broad shoulders with thick, roped muscles bulging beneath his

I first heard of Jenna Jacob when she co-wrote The Dom's of Her Life with Shayla Black and Isabella LaPearl. And, I loved that series so I decided to explore those authors a little more and I am glad I did. I loved Embracing My Submission by Jenna Jacob and I am very happy I decided to explore her books a little more! And, fortunately for me the next book in this series is already out and already on my Kindle

read collaboration books featuring Jenna Jacob and this is the first book I read solely written by her. I was really excited to read this book because I loved other books she was a part of and wanted more. I was not disappointed, in fact I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself crying at more than one point in the book. So much to the point, I stopped reading to "friend" the author in hopes she would accept and I could tell her she made me cry...bug ugly tears.

This is a book about growing to know yourself, discovering the boundaries that you can over come and survival. Juliana, having bee in the world of BDSM was not shocked by what that lifestyle could offer but was yet unable to find the one. The one that would make her complete and take her to the heights she fantasized and dreamed of.

Julianna aka Emerald was a sub, a sub without a Dom. This makes makes Emerald upset knowing she longed for a Dom yet she doesn't have him. Having Drake aka Daddy Drake as her mentor is comforting because not only is he her mentor but also her good friend. Daddy Drake helps Emerald to shape into the perfect sub she's supposed to be yet, that is not enought for her.
Working as a hostess and trainer for an exclusive BDSM club during the night, is the only way to placate her

This is a book about letting go and acceptance of self. That is a wonderful theme and the message to be true to yourself is important.

This is a bdsm book and I enjoyed all the peeks into the bdsm lifestyle. Emerald/Julianna is a submissive looking for her "one true Dom" while volunteering/working weekends at a sex club. Emerald is under the protection of a Dom ("Daddy") but she is not his sub. Therefore, she is unfulfilled sexually and emotionally, and longs to be "owned." I really liked Emerald

Emerald is a submissive in training and has been dreaming about that one perfect dominate that can take her in hand and she can finally give her gift of submission to. The problem is that dreaming is all she does and she begins to believe that the perfect Dom only exists in her fantasies. After a past bad experience, Emerald is under the protection of Drake, a Dom, from her club. Under his protection was not enough for Emerald. When she meets Sir Jordan she is immediately attracted to him and lo ...more

I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I knew it was BDSM.. but so are SO many other books. This is a totally and unique, or rather more truthful, than most other books out there.

Julianna has been searching for her 'one', but after years in the BDSM community she hasn't even had a nibble of anyone interested, except her first (and bad) experience. She is lead and taught by a mentor (who is gay) but he isn't meeting all her needs. Thinking she has finally met the 'one

Emerald is a submissive without a Dom, she has had dreams with a mysterious man and woman. The man in her dreams sets her on fire and no one else can seem to do that. In walks a new Dom and even though he doesn’t match the guy in dream she is still pulled to him, but he isn’t all that he seems. After the crap hits the fan Emerald meets her dream man. Seriously it is him, AND the mystery woman from her dreams is in a picture on the dream man’s desk! At times this story is frustrating because you ...more

Emerald is the sub version of "always the bridesmaid, never the bride". She goes to Genesis and watches the submissives with their doms and aches for her chance. Thinking that no one wants her and she must be doing something wrong puts her at a crossroads of sorts. When the truth comes out that she may not be as undesirable as she always though it will put her in a tailspin and lead her to the dom of her dreams. Some people say that dreams can't come true, but when a guiding spirit comes to help ...more

Embracing My Submission was one of the most amazing BDSM book I have ever read. The way Jenna so accurately shows the real word of bdsm in this book is outstanding. There are players, goofballs and plain scary guys but behind all of that there is genuine aftercare from loving Doms and Masters and that is always very important. One of the most amazing things is the way Jenna describes the differences between a slave and a submissive, a Dom and a Master.

The book starts off with the female lead, "emerald" being a sassy sub desperate to find her Dom. So much so she throws herself into the arms of a sadist Dom wannabe.

I'll be honest I struggled to connect with this book on several occasions. The book is well written, I didn't notice any desperate cry for editing.

However, "emerald" was a bit to inconsistent at a couple of points. She became so desperate to find a Dom, any Dom that she became an emotional mess and lost the core of her personality,

I bought this book because I have met this awesome lady at signings and read several other books of her but not this series.

I am a fan of the genre of BDSM and so the “on- click” option was an easy one to make. I grabbed it and sat down one morning for a quick and enjoyable read. The story is
Marie- Naughty Moms' Story Time
Dominance and submission genuinely had nothing to do with kinky sex, but everything to do with trust, faith and letting go.

The statement above is the fundamental message in each of these amazing stories. Jenna Jacobs does an outstanding job of not only telling stories of two people finding their soulmate, she weaves in and masterfully conveys the dynamics of the BDSM lifestyle and the multiple facets of how those that live the life mold it into what makes their relationship and themselves...who

Review for Embracing My Submission by Jenna Jacob

Embracing My Submission is book one in The Doms of Genesis series by Jenna Jacob. It’s the first book I’ve read from Jenna Jacob, she’s got a style all her own when it comes to BDSM and the practices that are showcased within the lifestyle.

Emerald is a Genesis submissive without a Dominant. She is currently under the protection of Drake, who acts as her mentor and guides her through her submissiveness. Emerald has a poor self-esteem when it comes

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a quick but very satisfying read. The story had some weird moments and quite a few twists and turns, but was overall entertaining.
Julianna and Mika together were scorching!
The authors knowledge of the lifestyle was on point for a change and I'm looking forward to read some more about the Club Genesis.
