Kyle Wendy Skultety (
Well written, D/s story about a woman who doesn't realize she is a submissive until she meets Mark. I thought the discipline and assignments went rather fast, for a girl who never lived the life before, she was certainly putting in butt plugs and crawling around on her knees pretty quickly. And there is one whipping/punishment scene that made me feel pain. Otherwise, it's a generally familiar story line, with f/f action also. The ending will literally have your mouth drop open! And it's part of ...more

I liked this very much. The story follows Heather, a recently qualified lawyer, to a night out with old college mate Rebecca as she tries to get her life back and move on from a two-timing fiancee relationship. It becomes a pivotal moment that will change her life; that introduces her to Mark a Master in the BDSM community. He recognizes her natural submissive tendencies then leads and educates her into the world of submission with his strong Dominance to guide and control her. In all honesty th ...more

I just could not get into the relationship between Heather and Mark. He came off as sort of plastic and uncaring to me and I was puzzled why she would want to submit to him let alone give away her brain.

I thought some of the BDSM scenes were pretty intense especially the wall sit punishment scene but that kind of beating doesn't really do much for me because the aftermath always seems unrealistic. I am always amazed at the resiliency of these women who can take that kind of beating and not ever

I had read some of the reviews of this book. I had noted how most people seemed to be surprised by the ending. I bought the book. I started reading it. I even sneak-peaked a bit at one of the chapters close to the end. It seemed obvious what was going to happen. All the pieces were falling into place. I could see it a mile away. And then I get to the last chapter and it's just as I expected.
And then I get to the last page.
And then my jaw hit the floor.
I didn't see that coming. There was an extr

This was a free read and I downloaded and read it because I wanted to see how much more intense a BDSM themed erotic novel was in comparison to a BDSM themed erotic romance. The answer? Much...too much...more.

The book's Dom requires that his "slave" trust him unconditionally, yet does nothing to earn this sort of trust. Instead, his submissive is thrown into a very heavy-duty lifestyle change that involves her degradation, humiliation, and pain almost immediately. Even worse is the ending. It se

OMG! This was a very additive book to read. I so wanted things to work out for Heather and Mark (I love HEA). I loved Heather and really enjoyed how she worked out her inner demons. This book was very well written. The last page was a major shock to me. Hello my mouth fell open and I literally said "WTF" out loud. I can usually tell how a book will end, since so many are way to predictable. I hated Mark after reading this book. I am currently on the sequal, Social Service, because I had to find ...more

I liked and disliked this book. It was very hot, don't get me wrong, but some of it was pretty intense, even for me! And the ending @_@! I definitely did not see that coming! Definitely better than 50 shades, and I say that as someone who actually did not hate 50 shades like a lot of people did.

I definitely agree with some other readers that Mark seems to demand trust, even though I don't feel he did anything to deserve it. His treatment of Heather was extreme, especially because she is new to

I loved this book, steamy interludes, surprise twists. I found myself confused with the dom/sub relationship at times. It kept me wanting more. I immediately started reading the sequel, Social Service. I can definitely suggest this one.

I tried to keep this spoiler free, and I did steer away from the biggies, but certain things I mention may give away just a few small things.

I did enjoy this storyline, hence the 4 stars, but several things really bugged me. I did not care for Mark. At first I thought he was charismatic and sexy, but as the story progressed he just seemed manipulative and dishonest. Since I don't live this lifestyle, maybe I'm just not in the know about how things are usually handled, but I'm pretty sure that I
Under Order is extremely well written and the character development of Heather, showing her emotions and reactions to Mark's manipulations is done in a way that the reader soon realizes the author must live this live style. I found the humiliation and forced nudity personally distasteful but could see where the character found them stimulating. I enjoy reading erotica and BDSM is my favorite; it would not be a life style choice for me but it is fascinating that others find the attraction to it. ...more

Great story. Quiet a bit of romance and kink mixed together.
Included quiet moments, discussions about the lifestyle from Heather's perspective and the use of safewords.

Bit of a twist at the end, but not completely unexpected.
'll definitely pick up the sequel.

One note. if the amount of time spent workings is accurate, I'm glad I'm not a lawyer.

Was kind of enjoying it until the end, this went against everything, definitely not a HEA. Took the rating from a 3.5 to a 2.5. Decided not to read the next book in the series, at least not yet and quickly grabbed a book with a HEA.

This is a well-written debut. I would classify it as erotica rather than erotic romance. It deeply explores an M/s relationship with a focus on humiliation and pain.

“WHAT are you laughing at?!” I demanded irritably.
“Well, it’s just that… that’s going to hurt a bit, my dear. Go on, bend over. I’ll demonstrate.”
