Three things:
1.) descriptive BDSM
2.) F/F (occasionally F/F/M)
3.) smut

At its finest, I may add. *lol*

It was a "pleasure". ;-P

P.S: Thanks for the recommendation, mo chroi! XD

Parts of this book were good, others were a bit of a train wreck. I love erotica, normally have no issue with BDSM; but all the marking, biting/bruising, claiming "Mine" Mommy play, fisting, DP, pegging, MF, FF, MFF scenes overwhelmed the story.

I've tagged this as taboo due to Violet's backstory of incest. I almost threw the towel in when I read this. "My dad came in my room, furious that I'd told mom. He was even more pissed that she'd told him that if he wanted to fuck me, he could j

I have a difficult relationship with BDSM stories. I have no experience whatsoever in this world, but I admit that I am curious about it, at least, up to a certain level. I feel highly detached from the parafernalia (leather, sexual clothing, collars, etc) and some of the language and attitudes (Mistress, Mommy, Kneeling, etc), but I do enjoy reading about the D/S dynamics and roleplaying.

When reading BDSM stories I usually find myself enthralled and envious of the extreme level of intimacy and
Yeah, Ok I don't think FF is my thing. I still love this authors storytelling though so I'll be checking out her future works.

The book is so spectacular at first, the scenes between Em and Violet totally enthralled me. It was so alluring, so sexy, and so hot.

Then near the end, it all came crashing down.

I like BDSM. I like lesbians. I like sex. This book was about a love that developed between two women within a BDSM relationship. What's not to like right?

Ah, I really don't know what it was about this book. I should have loved it but I didn't.

For the first time ever, I found myself skipping past the sexual encounters. There's only so much pussy licking and clit pinching I can read before I get bored and it gets tedious. The sex scenes were all a bit rinse and repeat for me.

Wow this is a thoroughly enjoyable and oh so hot read.

I really don't want to say much more than the synopsis tells you. The synopsis gives you enough to tease yet this book is so much more. Love Em and Violet. These characters are wonderful.

This is a really hot book. Be warned its an f/f read with maybe a few m/f/m scenes:) It's a hot erotic bdsm story that I was glued to.
Thankfully this is a standalone with no cliffhanger. However there is a sequel that I really need to read as soon as possi

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

This is a really good read. It is a standalone which could definitely be expanded upon, as there are a group of interesting side characters (not so subtle request to Ms Cole!). I loved the pace, the tone, the people, the situation. It was neither sickly sweet, nor unduly harsh; the drama was not extreme, the caring and love developed and drew in both the characters and the reader. There was comedy in the form of Peanut; fa

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

Yes, Mistress is a lovely piece of erotic BDSM fiction. Very early on Mistress M tells us that sex isn't love. When I read that I knew this book would be good.

Told from the point of view of M, a dominatrix and a woman who group up in a well to do family, the story takes us from a point in M's life where she is single and care free to a wonderful end she did not see coming.

This was really working for me, and it was exactly what I was looking for, right up until the last chapters. Then things just got weird and very very uncomfortable.

Honestly if you’re planning to read this, my tip to you would be to stop after chapter 17. It would have been much better, cause everything that happens after that completely contradicts everything the two mains have done and said up until that point.

And then don’t even get me started on the penis rudely, suddenly and completely unn
I enjoyed this story.
Em and Violet were a lovely couple with some pretty hot sex .
I liked the progression of their relationship over the years. There was low angst, and no real drama which made for a nice easy love story.

Warning for those looking for lesbian only erotica, this has fmf and ffm scenes (two scenes in total) from about 70%, as well as a few F/m scenes as part of Em's job as a Dominatrix.

There is also some switching which threw me off. It lowered my rating. I did not enjoy that scen

My first F/F BDSM book. It did not work for me.
Too sweet, too far-fetched, I started to skip pages and I decided to stop reading it.

While it wasn't Pulitzer prize winning writing, obviously, it was brilliant. I rarely read smut but this one intrigued me and I am glad I took the leap and read it.

There should however be a trigger warning on this book, and no that is not a spoiler people; it's about warning people who might be triggered. So that aside, totally worth the read. The characters were adorable and very likable.

The plot rushed but yeah it's smut. :) LOVED IT!!

This one for sure is very hot. It was a tad bit long but the sex scenes were for sure interesting. I will rate this 3.75 stars but will round it to 4...mainly because the sex is fire.

This was a really good book. I received Yes, Master as a free book and was told to read Yes, Mistress first. This is the first BDSM book that I've read with a domme. I like when there is good character development and N.J. Cole didn't disappoint here. It was a sweet romance with some good kink, hot and sexy.

In all honesty, I don't go for FF novels, but I will read them if they're written well. NJ Cole has crafted Yes, Mistress so nicely that I have no complaints at all and would even say it's given me warm, fluffy feelings. Surprise!

Normally when "Domme" is mentioned, people think of women with male submissives - well at least I do. Having not read the blurb of this novel (I'd been asked to review the series' second installment, Yes Master, and wanted to do the first as

I can't say that f/f stories are out of my comfort zone because I do enjoy them. To say they are outside of my current norm is probably pretty accurate since I am more drawn to m/m relationships. I would say that D/s books are on the fringe of my comfort zone. I read them, I enjoy them, however I don't really seek them out. Truth be told, I just love a great story with interesting characters, settings that I can see in my mind, and well written, intriguing plots. The sex of the characters in the ...more

I actually was one of the lucky ones who was privileged enough to beta this beauty. I am a forgetful girl and forgot to put my review up! Eeek! So I am rectifying that mistake now!
I love this story. NJ took us on a journey with this one.
M finds out that maybe she doesn't have everything she ever wanted when she pursues an opportunity presented to her. Violet is a shy submissive who is finding solace working at the BDSM shop that Mistress M comes to be a part of.

This was a hauntingly erotic F/F BDSM story. In one sentence that is how I can sum it up. I don't often read F/F so to read something out of my comfort zone and actually LOVE it, is kind of huge! Em and Violet are amazing to read and to watch grow. The level of hotness was equal to the level of great story and plot! I really and truly enjoyed it. NJ Cole may just be dabbling in the F/F world but she has a great talent for it. She is an enchanting storyteller and FF, MM, MF I don't care. She writ ...more

I serioulsy loved this book. I've never been a fan of f/f storylines but NJ Cole pulled me into this one. I felt like each character was well developed. And I loved how time passed over in a few areas to develop the story without having to drag it out and add unnecessary things. And I really liked how the story ended.
Now I can't wait for Yes, Master!

Em Grayson and Violet make such a great pair in this. My only problem is towards the end. I'm not a lesbian, nor a woman, but I do have lesbian friends and they do not want anyone sticking dicks near vaginas. They just don't get turned on from it and they are not attracted to any men. They're attracted to solely women, so when Violet says she thinks she's a lesbian and then has sex with Eric (one of their dominant friends) it just isn't really realistic, unless she's bisexual and just doesn't sa ...more

I loved the Mistress to Mommy progression in this book. Cole took the responsibility of making sure to establish that both the dom and sub were well established within the BDSM lifestyle before jumping into rough domination without negotiations. The characters continually checked in for consent both in kink and through the development of their relationship. I thought these were vital steps towards making their sex both safe and sexy. This book is hot hot hot, I found myself messy wet almost the ...more

This is my first book by NJ Cole. It was highly recommended so I gave it a go. I really enjoyed it. It’s hard to find a good BDSM book...but especially difficult to find a good f/f romance that doesn’t involve too much drama and can be optimistic. I enjoyed falling in love with the characters. I wasn’t so sure about adding the Dom into the mix, but to be honest I was surprised it didn’t turn me away. I felt that his addition (sexually speaking bc there are a few male characters) was tasteful. I ...more

Yes Mistress was a powerful journey about a Domme everyone called M. She was highly regarded in the BDSM community and was always booked whenever she worked. She loved to travel to conventions and talk shop with other Dom and Dommes which is where she met up with her old friend and Dom Colton . He and his partner Eric offered her a business proposal that would cause her to have to relocate to Reno. She met an incredible submissive named Violet that turned her life upside down.

Beautiful Love Story!!!

This story definitely deserves double the five stars I gave because this book is the meaning of the phrase "Life Happens" and what a great one at that for Violet and Emmeline. I also loved this book because I saw the changes taking effect for both of these ladies. It just got better and better. I also loved the other characters in the story and the caring feelings they had for each other. Plus let's not forget this book had everyone being honest.

I'm only giving this 3 stars because I normally don't read F/F.
Over all, I enjoyed the story line....domme moves across the country and meets a sub she eventually falls for.

What I could have done without is most of the bedroom scenes. I know some were necessary, but didn't think others were. The ending kind of had the 'okay-where-do-we-go-from-here' feel to it, though I normally LIKE it when books extend past a certain milestone.
