"You might call me a Dominant or a Top, but really I’m just a very successful woman in my 30s looking for sexy role-play without the complications of a relationship. I need control. Love has never been on my agenda. Until, of course, one day the much younger Thomas Hunt came into my life. He broke down my walls and taught me to let go; he made me feel alive for the first t ...more

A must read for anyone 18+

Loved this book!! I was lucky enough to be a beta reader and give my input to Sam! A different change of pace, very erotic!! There's not another book out there that I've found that compares!! Had my emotions all over the place, whatever the characters were feeling, I swear I could feel down to my soul!!! I fell in love with Sam and Thomas right away and can't wait to see what's coming next!!! ❤❤❤

First, let me start by saying that this is an Erotica novel. Don’t complain when the main point of the story is the characters having kinky sex. If you didn’t know, that’s the point of the whole Erotica genre; character growth through the use of sexual acts.

Samantha Drake, successful lawyer and Domme, takes on Thomas Hunt sexy submissive. Samantha needs control after being denied “free will” in a sense, from her family. Her overbearing Father ran the household with an iron fist and her Mother b

Roulette: Love is a Losing Game by Sam J.D. Hunt is not your average Romance/Erotica/BDSM story, this author brings us into the world of D/s with a female Domme and make submissive and a unique story to go along with their relationship.

Samantha Drake: Lawyer, 30-something, successful, and Dominant. Samantha is a Domme looking for a live in submissive, someone who will live in her house (in their own room of course), and someone who will fulfill her needs as a Domme. Samantha has not had time nor

This book has been hiding on my kindle for a few weeks and I am glad I flipped back a few pages to read it. For this being a debut novel, it is well written and smoothly paced. There was a good cast of secondary characters that made it easier to relate to the leading lady and man.

The book starts and then takes you back in time to the events that lead you up to where you picked it up. This is not a book for those who don't like to read about sex in graphic detail- and there is a lot of it. Howeve

This well written debut novel by Sam J.D. Hunt is a MUST read! A dom/sub story that crosses the line of play into love.
In Roulette we meet Samantha, an attorney that has her own practice and Thomas, a college student teacher working on his doctorate. Sam provides for her live-in sub. They both get great enjoyment out of the roles they play for each other. Breaking all of her own rules Sam and Thomas get to know one another on a more personal level. Once those lines get crosse

This is a fast paced, exciting, hot and steamy, humorous at times, surprising story, right from the start! The author promises you will not have to wait for the excitement and the promise is definitely delivered in spades! You will fall in love with some of the character while detesting others! This story will astound you at every turn! Although this book is a page turner you can’t put down; a couple of times I found myself feeling the need for an emotional break. That’s just how tightly wo

This is a fabulous debut novel for Sam!!
I am so loving Thomas our main male character. He is the alpha male that has turned submissive but sometimes his true male shines through!!! It was so unique and refreshing. Thomas is a young, handsome, intelligent man who knows what he wants and will do whatever he can to get it.
Samantha is a beautiful, smart hot shot attorney that enjoys being in control at work and in the bedroom. When these two meet is takes us a fabulous journey. She knows what she w

Roulette was simply amazing. I started the story thinking I was going to be reading about a hardcore Domme. In fact what I got was a regular woman who liked to have control and male submissives, with some kinky sex on the side. When you meet Thomas Hunt, her new male submissive, you instantly fall in love with his young boy charm. Sam finds her resolve slipping more and more the deeper she gets in with Thomas. I found myself fighting for them to work throughout the entire story. You will laugh, ...more

I was pleasantly surprised with Roulette. I love a good romance, boy meets girl, they fall in love... but this book is so much more, and has it's own originality.
I've only ever read a dominant book from a male's perspective, and it was refreshing to be on the woman's side for a change.
The best part of this book, there is more to the story, an actual plot that holds suspense and keeps you on your toes throughout the book.

Hunt's writing is very well and had me engaged, something that'

There is a LOT of story packed into not quite 200 pages! The focus starts out on the Domme/sub/BDSM angle of their story, but quickly becomes more about their overall relationship. Thomas is completely endearing - you cannot help but adore him. He is compliant, demanding, flirty, confident, playful - his many sides proved to be a healthy challenge for Sam. There is some serious heat factor in their relationship. This is definitely only a segment of their story, but there was no epic-sized cliff ...more

***I recieved a copy of this book from the author for a honest review***

Oh my goodness this book is HOT! I fell in love with this story. From the HOT BDSM Sex to just plain vanilla you will not be able to put down.

Sam and Thomas are perfect together. From her need to be in control to him submitting! I loved the shaving screen! This book has so many twist and turns that I was surprised several times. I laughed and smiled until it hurt!

Mrs. Hunt you certainly know how to keep your readers hooked a

A good erotic story! Hot and steamy and well written overall. Sam and Thomas are great characters and easy to connect with. Loved secondary characters and would like to see inside their heads.
Only negative about this book to me was I felt it jumped unexpectedly and sometimes I had to reread a couple of lines to make sure I didn't misunderstand or skip something. Interesting storyline, can't wait to see what happens in the next installment. Reading the extras opens up more possibilities so make

Wow!!! This book has got it all; love, lust, passion great sex scenes and most of all it has a story.

The dynamics between the characters are realistic and the banter between them is comical and fun. I have even started using Thomas's cute of them being 'Babycakes.'

If you like a hot read with a mixture of suspense, then I would recommend this book 100%.

Wow. Just… WOW!

Author, Sam JD Hunt has done an AMAZING job on her debut book. Her characters suck you so deep into the story you truly feel like a voyeur!

If you’re looking for a new spin on an erotica, you’ve come to the right place… You’ll feel connected to her struggles with control & her love for Thomas in a way very few books can give you. And when it’s over, you’ll be begging for more!

If this is only the beginning, I can’t wait to see what’s in store us!

This book is HOT! Roulette is one of the best books I have ever read. I fell in love with Sam and Thomas. Whatever they were feeling I was feeling too. It was like watching a movie and it just sucked you right in. Sam kept you wanting more throughout the book. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out! All I can say this is a must read, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Sam for writing such a great book!

Hot & steamy read! Sam's debut is awesome. If you haven't read Roulette yet, you should. Lite BDSM with a side of romance & a tad of suspense keeps you riveted until the very end. I'm anxiously awaiting book 2, Blackjack, due out next month.

I received this book and honestly it is a HOT, steamy read! This book is a little different for me with a female domme! But as I got more into the book I couldn't wait to see what would happen between them once lines are crossed! I really enjoyed the book and off to read the next :)

Great book. Moves very fast which I liked. Very steamy. Loved Sam's Domme and Thomas was too hot.Not your average BDSM story. Glad there is another one coming ;)
Happy that there was no killer cliff hanger. Will be getting the next one asap.

3.5 - 4 switch it up stars.

I liked a great deal of this story, though not all of course. There was one part of their story that was a 'squick' to me, more of a matter of your kink is not my kink, so that's on me and not the authors writing ability.

The sex scenes were smoking hot and complimented the story, rather than 'being' the story. I liked that they were both switches, even though it was clear Samantha was the dominant one of the two. It was great she was willing to bottom and put her trust
