I never intended Joshua Lars, the sexy-as-sin sculptor to be more than a one-night stand. How was I to know his masterful hands and dominant command would wake the sleeping submissive within me? Any of my friends would have said that Mellie Carson was an independent, successful woman who would never kneel for a man. I’d already chalked my one foray into surrendering my con ...more

I have to start off with just WOW. Jenna Jacob is the one of the many authors that I would set everything aside and delve right in as soon as she has a book that releases. The Doms of Genesis series just goes beyond the simple BDSM type book. Fantastic story line that has the reader immersed into the story and emotionally connect with the characters. Lots of sensuality, laughs, and on the edge of your seat excitement/action.

Saving my Submission is very fitting for this story. We are introduced t
Back to GENESIS we go...where the Doms are deliciously seductive and the subs are fiercely sexy! Right off the bat, Ms. Jacob takes us on a scorching hot, kinky, angst ridden thrill ride. In Saving My Submission, Jenna Jacob does what she does best...making us weak in the knees with the incredibly explosive chemistry she creates between the two main characters. A big grin spread across my face after reading the first couple of pages! Instantly, we experience that explosive chemistry between the ...more

Likable characters with a great plot to go with it. I didn't see the connection between the characters at the beginning, but it definitely formed for me throughout the book.

Sometimes as a reader, you get lucky and come across an author that impresses and a series that amazes you with each new chapter. You know what I’m talking about - the series that becomes an automatic purchase and an author who pulls you in emotionally and doesn’t let you go until the final page. Well Jenna Jacob and her Doms of Genesis series easily falls into that category. So you know when the fourth installment, Saving My Submission, became available that I was one-clicking that book.

Saving My Submission is the fourth book in the Doms of Genesis series and focuses on Mellie Carson, sister to Savannah from book two if you’ve been following the series. Mellie is an independent career woman, an interior designer who travels the world sourcing product and making her high powered clients happy. She heads to Chicago, home of her sister and Club Genesis, on business and meets Joshua Lars, master sculptor. Sparks fly as soon as they lay eyes on each other and a one night stand o

This was a great read, exploring the effects of a bad breakup on a submissive woman. It is the fourth book in the Doms of Genesis series.
Mellie was an independent woman, who had built a life for herself without long term relationships for the past several years. Then she meets Joshua Lair, known at Genesis as Master Stephen, a Dom who brings out her submissive longings. But her previous

The Doms of Genesis has quickly become one of my favorite series. The fourth book, Saving my Submission, was a great addition to the series and did not disappoint. It was just as beautifully written as the previous books and the mix of emotion, action and sex scenes made this a must read for me. I really enjoy the camaraderie between the Doms and subs. Jenna Jacob does a wonderful job of showing how those in the lifestyle are a kind of family. This book gave us the story of Mellie and

The story of Joshua and Mellie is so heart warming, its just a wonderful book. I truly enjoyed Mellie, his strength and her determination is overwhelming. I would be proud to call her my sister any day of the week. Josh is wonderful as well. He is kind and caring strong, and way way super hot and sexy!

Meillie has lost her will to submit. Mellie was very active in the DBSM world, until a dom took her collar and her heart away, and she has decided that she is going to give up the lifestyle so she

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is the fourth in the series, and I would recommend that you read the previous three to get context - although it is a very good book in its own right.

Even though I had just read the previous books, I was for brief while confused as to the characters in the first chapter. However, it all becomes much clearer and the reveal is highly entertaining. The story is an interesting mix of drama and personal discovery. I think

There were so many amazing things in this book.
The party.
The Wedding.

This book was just stunning. The action and adventure in this one made me feel as if I was right there. Everyone had a part to play and when there is a lot of characters in one time it is often hard to tell who is who but Jenna did a fantastic job. It was sexy scorching even! Master… Errr… Joshua sets the pages on fire with his Dominance and when the bratty sub challenges that well it certainly heats up!

Freaking amazing again.

Jenna never disappoints me. I was blown away again by the story and the passion in the book. I was so swept up in this story I didn't even see the ending coming. which I might add is mind blowing. after reading the book though I came to tears. the next story it of Trevor and "daddy". the Excerpt given had me yelling no........I was crying for Trevor. If you haven't read Jacobs books start with book 1 they are a great group of friends from Club Geniuses and every story is w

Loved this book and this series!! Your a dipshitiot if you don't- inside book joke!! The Doms of Genesis books, where the doms are hot with issues and the subs are sassy, fierce, smart and real (nit all size 2 barbie doll looking) and able to provide protection for their men. The journey of Joshua and Mellie has kink, suspense, and a great story and A MUST READ!!!! JENNA JACOB YOU DID IT AGAIN - YOU ROCK! !!!! I NEEDED A BUCKET OF ICE FOR THE COOL DOWN!! YOU? NOW PLEASE BACK TO WRITING
I'll call this a 3.5 star read.
Not my favorite in this series thus far.
I was a tidbit bored for about 40%. Once the suspense factor kicked in it held my attention better.
Mellie came across as bitchy and it turned me off and made it difficult for me to sympathize with her.
I disliked some of the terminology used. For instance, "oozing" is not a sexy word, no sentence structure will change that fact 🤢.

The Doms of Genesis Series by Jenna Jacob
Outstanding series *****5 STARS*****

Jenna Jacob is a new author to me and one who I am so happy to say I am honored to have come across. Reading and reviewing her books has truly been a joy to me. Rarely do you come across an author who can captivate her readers the way she has done with this series. Her ability to develop not only the characters but the scenes on the pages of her books is a true testament to her unique writing ability.
I want to say that

This is the forth book in the series and they need to be read in order. Mellie is a strong independent woman. Mellie is also Savannah’s older sister. As you know from book two Mellie has some experience with submission herself. She comes to Chicago to visit her sister and to attend an art showing for a client. While attending Mellie meets the artist and has an evening with him. Only it’s not just sex he sees her submission inside of her. Something happened to make Mellie push down her submissive ...more

This is the 4th book in the series and it just keep getting better and better. I love that we get to catch up with the other couples and threesomes from the previous books and also what's going on with the members of Club Genesis.

Mellie, Savannah's older sister, is a very independent woman who doesn't believe in commitments. She comes Chicago to acquire some sculptures for a client and to visit her sister and her 2 dominants. While visiting her sister, she attend Savannah's friend's bachelorette

***WARNING*** This is a review of ALL FOUR books that are out in the series so far***

I'd like to start off by saying...WOW. Jenna Jacob knows BDSM and knows it well. There are so many BDSM books out there at the moment. I’ve
read quite a few and I have to say that this series completely blew me away. The
author combines wicked hot sex with the perfect amount of suspense to create an
intense look into the lives of several couples at Club Genesis. I believe this

Book 4 in the Doms of Genesis series, but it can be read as a standalone.

I love Jenna’s style of writing. It is very descriptive and poetic. It is beautiful to read. This book focuses more on the emotional side of submission then that there are actual scenes. I loved how this book gave a real insight into the Submissive mind.

It is about second chances and opening yourself to a new opportunity.

It was a wonderful sensual read.

Dominance and submission genuinely had nothing to do with kinky sex, but everything to do with trust, faith and letting go.

The statement above is the fundamental message in each of these amazing stories. Jenna Jacobs does an outstanding job of not only telling stories of two people finding their soulmate, she weaves in and masterfully conveys the dynamics of the BDSM lifestyle and the multiple facets of how those that live the life mold it into what makes their relationship and themselves...who

During Book 2 we were introduced to Mellie, Savannah's sister. We learned a little about her back story, but there is much that not even Sanna knew. The real reasons behind many of Mellie's choices come out in this book. She has many fears to overcome and when she spends the night with a dominant male her submissive side comes out to play. Once the submissive comes out again, it's harder to tuck her away a second time.

This book was absolutely amazing and by far my favorite in the series. Why? Y

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Where to start? I enjoyed this story a lot. I liked that Sanna got her sister back, I liked that Mellie was able to find her submission again. I think that this series has grown on me, however, I did have one issue with the story, in general, but we'll get to that.

“unrelenting pleasure; Joshua stoked an insatiable side I didn’t know existed. But I knew one thing: I’d never get my fill of the man. “Whatever this is… whatever it means, we’ll sort it out.” His reassuring words sang in my brain as he reached out and palmed a condom from the nightstand. I put my ponderings to rest as he sheathed his stunning shaft. “Fuck. You test my control, little one. The need to be gentle and not hurt you battles with my demand to consume you,” he hissed through clenched teeth. Stroking his thick shaft as if trying to soothe its ache, he edged in, aligning the wide crest with my swollen folds. “Don’t be gentle. I won’t break. I need to feel all of you, again.” He lunged inside me, fast and hard. That unforgettable burn flared through my core and rippled like a bubbling brook. Joshua stilled and I held my breath, struggling to relax my quivering passage and accept his glorious invasion.” 0 likes
