"She had a feeling his attention could be addictive."

Janna Hill just wanted a life that was controlled by her father. He had told her where to go to school, what to major in, where to work and even who to marry. But when her marriage failed after one month, due to his cheating, she wanted to start fresh; start over. On a business trip, she takes the opportunity to visit the local club as a guest. While there she meets Simon and he takes her on a journey that she will never forget. But things don

In S.J. Maylee's ""Taking Courage", Janna and Simon get off on the wrong foot. In fact, they get off on the wrong FEET. They met and shared something wonderful, but thanks to a naive mistake, that wonderful thing is ruined.

I don't like to give away spoilers, but I want to tell you so much more! I love S.J. Maylee's books. She writes beautifully with a nice, smooth feel. She gives us the right amount of angst without overwhelming you. Just because there's conflict, it doesn't mean that the main c

Prep list before you start reading this book: 1. A comfortable spot 2. A glass of wine 3. A vibrator and finally total privacy. Not an exaggeration if the chemistry between Janna and Simon upon first meeting isn’t enough to melt your undies off some of their scenes definitely will do the trick! Janna has always done what her father has told her to do even down to what man she should marry. Finally she has had enough she divorces her husband and decides to take her life into her own hands.

S.J. Maylee needs to write longer books. I wanted this story in a full length novel. One absolute strength in her writing, is that with a novella, she doesn't leave anything out. The story line was well developed, flowed, and kept me engaged. But I wanted it longer just because of the story itself.

Janna meets Simon. She moved to Chicago to escape her old life and BDSM becomes a part of that new life. Not only can S.J. Maylee write a BDSM scene, but this story is not all about the BDSM life. The

Taking Courage by S.J. Maylee

This was the first book by this author that I have read. I love quick and fast paced books that get right to the point and this book did not deceive me. Janna has had enough of her families demands and her freedom being stripped from her. She finally decides to make a bread for it and head off to Chicago for some much needed me time. Janna has been fascinated with the BDSM and tries her hand at a Club. That is where she meets Simon she is intrigued with him and is ex

Janna flees a controlling father to seek a new job and lifestyle as a submissive. But when she commits a lie of omission at a club, she angers the Dom—who she ends up working with at her new job. Can a little BDSM action at work help to repair the broken trust?

Author SJ Maylee keeps getting better and better! Taking Courage is an uplifting, sexy BDSM story about a submissive who is not afraid to stand up for herself and go after what she wants out of life. Well, actually, she is afraid, but she

I received an arc of this book for my honest review.

Janna wants to take the bull by the horns, so she bucks up and enters a sex club as a guest. As she's walking in she sees Simon and he's given the responsibility to see that she's shown around. She pretends to be more experienced and when she admits it's her first time Simon is pissed. So, Simons friend hires her and forces them to deal with each other. It was well written, not a whole lot of D/s, at least not the super sexy kind. There is some

Jenna sees this as an opportunity to explore her inner desires and visit a BDSM club.

S.J. Maylee fell in love with storytelling at a young age and with it came a deep-seated desire for everyone to find their happily ever after. She’s finding the happy endings for her characters one steamy story at a time.

When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her caring for her garden, laughing with her two young sons, or dancing to her husband’s music. She’s a PMP (Project Management Pro
