*** Copy kindly provided by the publisher Barclay Publicity, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. ***

I have read this author’s “Exquisite Redemption” about a month ago and I really loved it. So when I saw this title appear on NetGalley I immediately clicked it. After I finished reading I noticed on my Kindle that I already had this book :)

Gia has been trained by a Dom and Domme. Now she participates in a submissive auction after which she will serve a Dom for 1 week. When she meets s

Meh. I wanted intensity and some BDSM elements that helped get me there. The plot sounded intruguing...submissives up for a charity auction, one week of belonging to a stranger (with the chance to opt out if they want) and a D/s that are just too attracted to keep their emotions out of the equation.

What I got was a cheesy, too fast paced B movie full of corny lines and shallow sex scenes based on stereotypical BDSM scenes...spanking, sharing, withholding the big 'O', etc. There didn't seem to b

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Full disclosure: I have met Ann Mayburn in real life and she is just as nice a person as you could hope to know. I’ve read most of her backlist and consider myself a big fan.

“Ivan’s Captive Submissive” is the first in the new “Submissive’s Wish” series by Ann Mayburn and if this story is any indication, readers who love BDSM romance are in for a real treat. Submissive auction

Abduction is on her fantasy list and Ivan, her real Master who has purchased her, plans on giving her everything on her list.

Welcome to the 28th annual "Submissive's Wish Charity Auction." The submissives up for auction tonight have been thoroughly tested and screened with extensive background checks done. They have provided us with their BDSM fantasy wishes, including any limits or restrictions, which we have included in the program for you to read and review. The winning bidder agrees to make said fantasies become reality for a one week period. I do want to remind you that 90% of the purchase price will go to charit ...more

Slave auction, kidnapping, dub-con, wealthy Russia-men, what more could a poor submissive ask for? Love... Gia is putting herself up for a kinky auction all for a good cause. *wink wink* The money goes to the charity of her choice, an animal shelter. Okay, I'm down with that and I think that is kind of awesome. Gia also gets 10% of the sale. That's not bad, a few hundred or maybe a couple of thousand for the sale, she'd get maybe $100. What she doesn't expect is 450K to purchase her. Dayum, that ...more

Ivan's Captive Submissive is hot, hot hot! Keep a fire extinguisher next to you, cause your kindle is gonna sizzle!
I loved this story. Ivan was a wonderful domanant:caring and protective. I loved watching the hard-ass man fall for his little sub. Ivan was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but worked his ass off to make his own name in the world. Former Russian military, scarred, tough and a little rough on the outside. Ivan isn't looking for a relationship. He's happy with getting his "kink

Gia offers herself for sale at an auction for several reasons, she will raise money for an animal shelter she works at, she will earn enough for herself to put a deposit on a house but most importantly she will find someone who can finally help her reach her subspace. She has been trained by an experienced Dom and Domme and dabbled in the BDSM club scene but has never managed to reach that level of trust with anyone.

She is bought by Ivan and they fall in immediate insta-lust with each other. He

Ann Mayburn is one of my favorite go to authors, because she writes solid, well constructed stories, hot sex scenes, and interesting characters. Unfortunately, this one just didn't work for me.

The story is female fantasy fodder for sure, with an uber rich, uber endowed, uber sized alpha hero, who just happens to have a sexy accent, and a poor but deserving female who hasn't caught anyone's eye until spied by our intrepid hero. I knew this going in, it's a fantasy I like reading occasionally, but

When I bought this book at ARe I was expecting a novel full of clichés, such as a rich, overbearing and cuddle-worthy alpha hero, a tough heroine, a lot of money, sexy and kinky love scenes, a nice kidnapping scenario and all together a great reading time. Unfortunately, this story turned out completely different and annoyed me quite a bit.

As already mentioned, I don't expect anything groundbreaking when I buy certain stories, but where BDSM sex scenes are concerned I at least expect them to be

This is my first book by this author. A reading buddy recommended in one of the forums that we read this series. Imagine my surprise when I find out that I have books 1 and 2 on my kindle unread. I decided I would check this series out.

This is Ivan and Gia's story. Well what a pleasant surprise. Just like the couple made a connection with each I made a connection with them. Gia's looking for a Dom and she finds one in Ivan. I liked that apart from one big misunderstanding they were honest and op

Mmm. So effing good, this book. I may have touched myself at time or two. Or five.

3.25 RATING - I passed over reading this book several times because the author notes that it contains F/F situations. First, let me say that I greatly appreciate the author noting that in her description of the book. For most I'm sure, F/F isn't a deal-breaker and may be something that's enjoyed. Unfortunately, F/F is a hard limit for me. I consider myself a pretty open minded person but when it comes to reading, I don't want to read about two women together. Not for a scene, a page, or a paragr

Gia signs up for the submissive's wish charity, the submissive chooses a charity, then the Dom or Dominatrix that bids for them gets to keep them for a week. The money that was bid goes to the subs charity.

I really hate to say this but I found this book a bit boring, the plot got lost amongst all the sex. I didn't dislike Gia or Ivan, but they didn't work well together for me. Gia was extremely immature, while Ivan was rather stereotypical of a Russian bad boy. Considering most of the book's co

Shelves: just-ok
The h is gorgeous but for some reason, not at all confident even though she knows she is gorgeous. The H is a strong Dom, he sees he and wants her. They are role playing for 1 week, she's shared her preferred scenario which he wants to give her, she thinks she's really his captive. So low self esteem and not too smart, inspite of being an architect. For me the story got bogged down in too many steamy scenes, which just continued on an on - I got bored and skipped a lot of pages. It's steamy but ...more

This is a really tough call, this rating is more for the story than the audiobook. It really was not the right pairing. I do not even know how to rate the read, he isn't awful, just the wrong choice.

Oh my, this is a very, very, very naughty book!! Holy hawt and sweaty smexy time!! this is what most of the book is centered around. What did you expect she was bout at a submissive auction and this is the way she spends the week! Duh, you should not be disappointed by the steam. Hell yes, that is se

Gia is an architect who works hard and has very little social life. She has trained as a submissive and plays at her local club, but has never found the Dom who can get her into subspace and pleasure her the way she desires. She enters a Submissive's Wish Charity Auction, where the subs are bought by Doms who intend to fulfill the fantasies of the subs, and the money they spend purchasing the subs for a week goes to a charity of the submissive's choice. Gia is bought by Ivan, a Russian Dom who s ...more

This book was recommended to me in April and I immediately purchased it but for some reason never got to it, now here we are in November and I received another gentle push so finally read it.

I am purring like a kitten, having finished this book. What an adventure, what an awesome build up, what a great pair of characters and oh-so-important to me, what a noticeable lack of ridiculous drama and an ideal portrayal of the way to deal with any hiccups that will inevitably come in every relationship.

I will not write a short summary of the plot this time, it is available in the book's description. What I will do is praise in abundance the balance of this book. It really has it all, in jus

This is book one in the "Submissive’s Wish" series. This is the first book I have read from Ann Mayburn but it won't be my last. This was a really good book in story line, length (about 366 pages) and characters. This was not a rush to get to their love scene also it showed both couples thoughts and feelings.
Gia Lopez has signed herself up for a charity auction for Dom/submissive time with whoever 'buys' her for the week. This is the first time she has every done this auction and is a little sc

If you are familiar with Ann Mayburn's writing, you already know she writes very addictive stories that have a sweetness to them, yet still manage to come close to melting your ereader because they have such heat in them. This book is no exception. Ivan is super hot with this romantic side that makes this story. While there were times I wanted to reach through the book and smack him, his heart was always in the right place and you can not help but like him. I loved watching the connection grow b ...more

Oh my... talk about a yummy story. I love the details, the heat and the flow through out the story. Add in the drama that goes into their relationship just made this story go to the top of the list.
Gia and Ivan's story is one that I know I will not forget.

Ivan wants to fulfill Gia's fantasies. And he does one hell of a job doing it. Causing drama and heat that just builds this story up. Gia is unsure of where this is going. She is scared of how she is feeling. Ivan knows what he wants and does

I was prepared to give this one five stars from the description. It has BDSM, a kidnapping fantasy, and a sexy Russian Dom. The story started off great with a "kidnapping" and lots of hot play time and tons of sex. Then about 60% I was thinking this was going to be a cliffy, but not there's a rushed ending and no epilogue. There were so many typos, missing words, and sentences that didn't make sense. Plus there were sequencing problems...she has in a gag and he was holding

I JUST finished reading this book and HAD to write a review ASAP! Can I just say WOW!!! Ivan is a hot, sexy, serious Russian that kidnaps Gia after a Submissive Wish Charity Auction. Gia is a beautiful architect who has a fiery side that brings out the dominant in Ivan. Tvan is the sweetest Dom I have ever read. This was a fantastic read and one I couldn't put down until I finished the last word. I can't wait until book two comes out!
