Heather in FL **UGH the new home page is FUGLY**
This was on the shorter side, and maybe it suffered for its length. It was an interesting story, though not great. I wondered early on if I would DNF it, only because it felt like I was thrust into a scene with no real background on the characters. I didn't get it. And then, all of a sudden, I was feeling really bad for Briony. Her original master, Ridge, was a bit of a presumptive asshole. How 'bout talking to her before deciding you want to take on another sub??

Anyway, once she'd acknowledged

I must say that this is one of the most unique BDSM stories I have read. This story gravitates to the more mental and emotional demands that a D/s relationship requires. It also touches on how somebody could get mentally messed up as Briony did. I found it extremely interesting how Chris was able to help correct that negative mind set. This was a really good short story. I would actually love to see a continuation of their story. The only thing that I would change about this story is that I woul ...more

Briony thinks she's in a great D/s relationship with her boyfriend Ridge until she finds him with another woman. So she picks up the pieces of her heart and tries to find another Dom. Eventually she finds Chris even though she already knows him.

Liked it. Really liked the Emerald scene between Briony and Chris. Wow.

Well written BDSM novella. What I find refreshing is the use of emotional control rather than physical. This very appealing aspect of BDSM is rarely exploited in BDSM erotica. I look forward to January Rowe's next book.

This is not your typical story, either romance or bdsm... its also not for the faint of heart. I think the synopsis of the book pretty much encompasses the story. Briony is trying to find her "one" true master after being betrayed by her previous Dom. Chris wants her but patiently waits and gives her time. They have a few confrontations throughout the story before he finally corners her. He's not your typical Dominant. His methods and needs are very different than she's used to and almost a litt ...more

I liked the premise of the book, but it didn't read the same way. It opens and you have Bri with her original Dom. I was rooting for her to leave him, no lie. You would think that Bri would begin a journey that would have her brushing paths with the DM who you know from the blurb she ends up with, but instead she goes off on her own for a while and the story focuses on her finding herself. That's cool! Everyone should know who they are, but when Bri and the DM Chris finally do get together there ...more
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!
This one was hard for me. I didn't feel connected to Chris at all. I felt like he needed a "project" more than a sub. I was also disappointed because when she asked for a safeword, he said you don't need one. That's a HUGE red flag for me.

Bri was messed up as well. She lived in a fantasy world and seemed disappointed that real life didn't meet up with her fantasy world. I was glad to see she insisted on a safeword with Chris, but she won't use it. She demonstrated that with Sterling. She should
Dec 02, 2012 Erica rated it it was ok
Ehhhhh. Not that great. I really thought it was going to be good after the steamy opening scene on the ski slope with Briony and her ex, but it just never really got going for me. I thought the whole Dungeon Master/doctor routine was a really cool twist, but the book was not long enough to do any character development with Chris OR with their relationship. The emails that Briony received in response to her personal ad though were pretty darn funny...even more so because they weren't ...more

I really didn't like this one. The story is about a disappointed sub that finds a new Dominant and learns a different type of submission.
First, it's written in the heroine's POV and it really doesn't work well. Second, the sex scenes are sad and boring. Third, I felt no connection to either character.
The only interesting (and funny) part of the story were the e-mails.
This BDSM perspective feels different from previous fetish novels I have read. Not sure if that is because it is based on real life experiences or if it is the research showing through.
Enjoyed the light bantering both during the novice top proposition and doc's dates. Felt like Ms. Rowe was really getting into her groove there!

So I bought this book because it was cheap and looked like a quick read. I was a little put off at first by the first person POV, but once I got into it everything moved very nicely. This is a quick, fun BDSM read. I loved the responses to Bri's personal ads. Chris is hot as hell and the sex is nice and kinky. All in all a good time.

Shelves: january-rowe
This short book spent too much time on emails from potential online doms and not-that-steamy fantasies. Absolutely no character development for Chris. No closure with the ex. Little development of the love story. I couldn't relate to this one at all.

This was a big improvement on Management Skills. Scenes were played out more completely. Nice for a quick read and I was happy for Bri when she finally got her HEA.

I really liked this book... Reading the emails in between was hilarious. though there were some confusing parts. Wished this story was longer.

short and not very transformative. I want my $2.80 back.
Mar 19, 2010 Pallavi rated it it was amazing
Yes, as someone says the use of emotional control as opposed to an assortment of instruments was a refreshing change but for me that's because the heroine needed the emotional control. And it was good to read an honest description of what she needed and the simplicity of her relationship with Chris, the way the book was written made all of these things pack a punch. A keeper, one of my favourite books.
