4 Understanding the Key is Total Trust Stars * * * *

We are driven to love.. we all want it whether we think we deserve it or not... it is in our DNA. What is key is how we love... do we love freely and completely... or do we hold back and hide the demons we all think we have? Do we make the real leap of faith and give our trust to the one we love... because without that complete commitment.... are we really loving freely and wholly....

Linger takes these questions and presents them in how the Do

This is awesome!
I didn't like to read about a male submissive before! But this one is different, she is not your typical Domme and he certainly a real Alpha Male, even thought he totally submit to her in the bedroom hah!
Yep, I love the sounds of it!:)

*** This review is SPOILER-FREE! Read on with confidence! ***

Right from the start, Linger is a pretty easy read, so I didn't expect it to have such a mature view on the BDSM lifestyle. Many of the stories in this subgenre rely on swanky clubs and a rigid set of rules on which to base their content; take the story outs

I don't usually go for books with female Dommes, but this is a Lauren Jameson book, so clearly all my preferences go out of the door and I read it anyways. Almost the entire time my brain was telling me I wasn't going to like it, yet I couldn't put it down and I was utterly addicted to Logan and Scarlett's story. Only you, Lauren Jameson, only you could make me love a female Domme story :)

This is easily the best thing Lauren Jameson has written that I've read so far. Everything rang so true, and

☆☆☆☆4 “Mistress” Stars ☆☆☆☆

Linger.jpg

Linger by Lauren Jameson was the first book that I have read from this author. And in this book, Ms. Jameson introduces her readers to the BDSM side of a Female Domme aka "Mistress."

Control. Submission. Power. Domination. These four words are what pops into my mind when I think of the BDSM scene. In Linger, Ms. Jameson not only incorporates these aspects but also weaves layers of an emotional breakthrough. Walls were

Scarlett is pure Mistress in the bedroom and does nothing to hide that fact. When she decides to take her last night in Vegas and spend it at one of the more notorious clubs, run by friend Luca, she is at the point of putting it all on the line. You go to a club like this and there will always be a submissive waiting, but will he be the right one.
Logan is pure alpha cowboy who is being haunted by demons of his past. He wants to let go, for one night, just put his needs into the capable hands of

All that Scarlett wanted was to perfect her vet skills and open a hospital. She also knew that for her do do that she needed more experience in all kinds of a inlays so she got an internship on a farm. She moved from Vegas to Montana for a year long internship. But she didn't think she would find a submissive for herself as well.

Logan was completely afraid to let everyone into his personal life. He went to Vegas once or twice a year to fulfill his need as a sub. But meeting one woman has changed

It's not often that I want to read a book about a Domme with a male submissive, but I'm glad that I read this book. From the very beginning, Lauren takes you on a wonderful, heartfelt, and often intense journey as one man learns to accept this his submission is a true gift for one particular female. From the very first moment the two main characters meet, there is intense chemistry that continues to build throughout the entire story.

This was AMAZING!!!! I received an ARC from Lauren and read it because Lauren sent it, not because I would have picked it out. BOY DID SHE CHANGE MY MIND!!! This is a MUST READ for anyone who enjoys a good romance. The characters are wonderful. She develops them until they are friends, not just a book. I couldn't put this book down until I had reached the end!

When I first started reading this book I didn’t know that it was a part of a series. When I found out it really didn’t matter because we didn’t see any of the previous couples…I don’t think. I’m not really sure, it’ a guess. The book was a great introduction to this author and her writing even if I began in the middle.

Scarlett Malone is a dominant. She goes to her favorite sex club one last time before she moves to the middle of nowhere Montana. When she gets there

Whew! This scorching tale kept me up reading late into the night as the story of Logan and Scarlett unfolded. Logan is a cowboy, a solitary man who lives alone on his Montana ranch. He ventures into the city periodically to tend to his submissive desires and there meets Scarlett, a Domme at the club he attends who is drawn to his alpha male personality. They share one night of passion with no expectations for more - until Scarlett ends up as a vet trainee on his ranch and alone with him in his d ...more

Linger is my first book to read by Lauren Jameson. I found it to be very well written and provides an extremely detailed depiction of the lifestyle which is the basis of the story. She does an excellent job of portraying the roles and the psyche's of the two main characters, Logan Brody and Scarlett Malone.

The story begins with Scarlett having one last night out at her favorite sex club before leaving town for the wilds of Montana to begin a year long internship to complete her training as a ve

OH MY GAWD
Let me start this by saying that i have searched for years for a book to follow in the footsteps of natural law by joey hill. In that book, mac Nighthorse is this mouthwatering, sexy as sin alpha in tight jeans... and he is also a submissive. That book, the way that this little sprite violet got him to submit, has stayed in my head for years.

I received an ARC for a honest review.
I have never read a story with a female domme before because it usually isn't the type of story I read. But when it comes to reading a Lauren Hawkeye / Lauren Jameson story I have to give it a try because she has never let me down before. This story did not disappoint. Their intense attraction is puzzling to each of them. They both feel it the moment their eyes meet, the heat of their attraction emanated from their skin. They think they have only one night

In Vino Veritas is the sultry BDSM Club a chosen few get to belong to in Vegas. Once again, it is means of introduction to our next unsuspecting couple. Scarlett is a young and gifted Domme, newly trained by Luca the owner of the Club. The immediate attraction she feels toward one of the guests, leaves her breathless. Her only hesitation is the vibe she gets from him that he is not a sub, but rather an alpha.

Logan is both a luscious alpha male in his daily life and a submissive in the bedroom. T

My first reaction to this book was: Holy smokes! This book is hot! I don’t typically read books with BDSM and trust me when I say that this is NOT the main focus of this book. It was so much more – it was a story about instant attraction; it was a story about two broken souls; it was about meeting your other half.

When reading this story, you can tell Lauren Jameson poured heart and soul into this book. The characters – Logan and Scarlett – really touch you. But boy is this story hot. For me, the

This is the first book I've read about a female Domme. It isn't my cup of tea or anything I'd grab but it's Lauren Jameson. I found it interesting how she fought to gain control of such a strong Alpha. He's an alpha through a through unless it's in the bedroom. I enjoyed Scarlett and Logan they had an immediate connection and power struggle that was supposed to be a one night only. She was leaving to start an internship and never supposed to see him again until, so she thinks. Imagine showing up ...more

I'm not usually into books about female Dommes. Like, at ALL. I picked this up because I'd just discovered that one of my fave writers, Lauren Hawkeye, IS Lauren Jameson. I don't know why there are two pen names, cause they're the same kind of books. Anyway, I wanted to check out all of these books of hers that I hadn't read, and didn't realize it was a Domme until I started reading... and then I was hooked. So even if you think you don't like female Dommes, you should read this. Logan is as sex ...more

Oh man, I was absolutely intrigued by the blurb for Linger because COWBOYS and because the idea of an alpha-submissive male was.....not something I had encountered before. I’m not usually one to read BDSM books – with a couple of exceptions – so I really didn’t know what I was going to get when I opened this book. I certainly didn’t expect to fall for these characters, both of them, and their unique, sexy and, ultimately, beautiful story. But I did. How could I not? Did I mention alpha-submissiv ...more

Linger introduces the reader to the characters Scarlett and Logan. They separately enter the kink club hoping to have their personal needs met for just that one night. Upon meeting each other sparks of mutual attraction is ignited leaving them both wondering if the other was exactly what they were looking for the evening? Sometimes fate throws you a curve ball or shall I say, “cracks the whip”? They quickly learn that they will be working very closely together for the next year.
