I was expecting a little more from this one. It sounded good from the description, I was expecting an experienced dom. But the part that really turned me off was the when they went shooting. Keaton showed professionalism with a gun. Pointing it to the ground, never pointing it at something he 'didn't want to shoot'. Until he decided to use it as a toy. While it had a live round in it. The gun enthusiast in me had a huge problem with this. Granted the scene lasted but a few paragraphs, but it was ...more
This one was ok, just not very hot and the story line had big holes in it but being an erotic book (more for the sex and less for the story) I guess you can over look them.

Maddie (h) has been working for a big investment bank and was up for a promotion that she desperately needed. She recieved a dvd that shows her younger sister being held captive and they want 500,000.00 that she didn't have. Her house was up for sale but until it sold she was out of luck. The only thing she could think to do i

A review for The Romance Reviews.

IN DEBT TO THE DOM is a quick and sexy read, featuring a hot and loving Dominant that made me want to turn to a life of white-collar crime!

Maddie James is on the fast track at the investment firm run by Keaton Rivers until she gets a ransom demand for her "nothing but trouble" sister. She embezzles money from her job to pay the ransom with the intention of paying it back as soon as she sells her house.

Unfortunately, Keaton finds out first and confronts a very sc

Fast-paced (not in a good way). Plot was weak.

I liked how she refused to sleep her way to the top at the beginning of the book but after they became lovers and he gave her a promotion she was all like, hell yeah! No, don't worry, Maddie, you were just worried about being called a whore the whole damn book.

And that ending, man. Everyone is fine and we're all going to go live in our pink, fluffy world with pink fluffy endings. Especially you, sister-whose-name-starts-with-s-but-I-don't-care-enoug

I read this in 2 hours and all I can say is WOW.

***Note: This isn't going to be a real, honest to goodness review.

the Plot: I was continually frustrated with the female protag, but the plot was a good idea.
the sex aspect: This was the only reason I read it. It was fun. Had me squirming, but wasn't great.
As a conclusion: The plot was good, I enjoyed it, but it could have been executed a lot better. This book had the feel of a Harlequin book....with sex. For a non-Harlequin book? Bad.

***Note: This is pretty much the same review for the rest
Lady Raven RAVE!
This actually wasn't a bad read, I purchase this book a couple of hours ago and just finished it. I like that the moment I started the book it captured my interest and the rest just flowed easily throughout the pages. Maddie has a great job and loves her job, she believes her sister has been kidnpped and sets out to pay the ransom for her sister's safety by taking the money from the company (let's just say all is not what it seems regarding her sisters kidnapping). Keaton who is the CEO notices ...more

Clare C’s Review

The best parts were the erotic scenes where I could forget about the fact that Keaton is blackmailing Maddie into sleeping with him. I couldn’t quite get comfortable with that part. To me, D/s relationships should be based on trust and the fulfillment of mutual needs, and to base it on just blackmail seemed a lot selfish and a bit disturbing. However, Ms. Bowles’s approach to it made the issue mostly innocuous. It all turns out well, with Keaton helping Maddie address her embezz
I really really liked this story! I wasn't too sure about the whole "You owe me money and have to sleep with me" thing but it's not as bad as it seems. Keaton and Maddie were already very attracted to each other before the kidnapping/money theft drama began. Keaton had actually asked Maddie out to dinner but unfortunately he wasn't real smooth about the way he asked her and she thinks he's asking her to sleep with him for a promotion. She refuses to sleep her way to the top and he realizes thing ...more

Jae’s Review:

In Debt to the Dom by Jan Bowles tells the story of Maddie James and her growth to a strong and more empowered woman. She’s certainly used and abused by her family, and Keaton isn’t much better to be honest. The way in which the author redeems this character is very good, so that while he may not start out as a dream hero, he sure ends up that way. I rather enjoyed the character development in this story. You really did get lost in the pages as the story unfolded for these character

Maddie has stolen money from her employer to help her sister. Keaton Rivers has discovered it. To keep from going to jail she tells him she will do anything he wants her to do. To get her out of his system he decides that she will become his submissive. I liked this. I liked the intense sex scenes. Very hot! Keaton and Maddie make a good couple. Maddie is discovering her kinks. Keaton realizes this and, while angry with her, he does care for her and falls in love with her.

When CEO Keaton Rivers asks employee Maddie James out on a date, she thinks he is wanting her to sleep her way to the top and refuses. Maddies refusal spurns something in Keaton, and when he finds she has stolen half a million he offers her a way out, succumb to his every desire until she can pay off the debt she owes him.

Wannabe Dom who gets the girl only through blackmail. He comes across as spoiled and self centered. I found it amusing that he insisted on her trust. The way this " relationship" started really warranted it.
As far as I am concerned he should have been horsewhipped for his action on the shooting range.

She has a sister who is kidnapped, or at least that is what she believes, and in order to pay the ransom, she steals half a million dollars from her investment bank where she is a middle executive. Her boss takes the money "out of her hide" quite literally by making her a servant in his home.

I wasn't all sure about this book at first. The story was great, but the premise of it was a bit forced. I loved the way it came together in the end, though and overall, I enjoyed the book. I hope more of the series is better.

This book was awful, awful, awful! Just, no! I'm not sure why I thought I'd like it, maybe because it seemed like there would be some suspense and some story line, but I was wrong. Don't bother with this one!

3.5 Stars. I really liked the story, an enjoyable read....but was expecting the dom to be a bit more...well dominant (like Cooper McKenzie's). All in all, worth the read. I enjoyed it.

Essentially a love story with a non-con beginning. Some D/s, and some spanking. Seques into consensual pretty quickly. Characters are a bit cardboard, but the sex scenes are very hot!!
