I was once told that I was like an animal. Animals were naturally conditioned, just like the rodent that I was, I needed to be conditioned. Aristocrats in our class had a trained way of living. Women had their place beside their hard-working spouses and weren't allowed to rock the boat.

As a small child, I believed in the preparation requirements. Once learned, a conditione

Domesticated is Jettie at her best once again! She takes characters and makes you hate them, then love them. It's a messed up story but you can't help but want more. Yea, you'll be shaking your head through some of it wondering where she came up with Kendra believe me. But you'll find out things and why she's like she is and it's heartbreaking at times. Jettie is constantly touching on subjects that most authors would stay away from and all I can

I was one of the lucky ones to read this book early. Jettie Woodruff is an absolute brilliant and amazing writer. When reading Jettie’s books, make sure you have a bottle of wine handy because she knows how to completely mess with your head in ways you never imagined. I try not to write books with spoilers because everyone deserves to get the full experience of this book. Jettie has written some amazing books but Domesticated is by far one of the best ones yet. Where to even start with this one… ...more

I don't think I could ever pick up a Jettie Woodruff book and be disapointed. It's just not possible, everything she writes turns to gold and I find myself captivated by Jettie and her words, time after time and with each new release.
I love all the characters she has created and I have my personal favorites too.

Domesticated is action packed and full of twists and turns coming at you unexpectedly form every angle.

~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads Review Team~

Kendra had a horrible childhood; she had an evil stepmother and stepsisters. Raised and trained for the life of a rich person. Kendra never felt like one of the people she was raised to be like, she wanted to be herself, but breaking free of that mold was so hard to do. I don’t want to give away any of the story but it was rough in some spot and awesome in others. I don’t think there was one emotion that wasn’t

I love Jetties book. I promote her books when I can because I know she can guarantee me a great read. She certainly rocked my boat with this book. Brilliant read.

Kendra is a broken character. Throughout the book she gives us glimpses of her awful childhood. What she went through is heart breaking. Now she's a high society kept woman married to the unemotional & unloving Garrison.
Her world is turned upside down when she meets Sam. Yikes I think my life would be upside down if I met Sam lol
What a PLEASURE-FULL book! (Pun completely intended!)

No joke, this book will have you extremely turned on instantly! Domesticated starts by telling the story of Kendra who is anything BUT domesticated. Portrayed as a snobby, privileged, heartless bitch, Kendra doesn’t mask her feelings for those beneath her. Her marriage is awful. Her existence is awful and you can’t help but to feel no remorse. Kendra’s personality and the company she keeps is just vile. Everything charitable she does is for ap

I was beyond excited to receive a copy from author for an honest review!!!!

Kendra is a rich young women who had the most horrible childhood ever growing up. Living with her father, stepmother, and step sisters she was made to believe she was nothing and will never be.

Now Kendra is married to Garrison a wealthy man who gives her everything but what you believe on the outside isn't always the way it is on the inside. Deciding to get away she goes on vacation for the summer and that's where she mee

Gifted a copy for an honest review . Every time Jettie writes I find myself jumping up for joy . IN this book you have Kendra rich snobby bitch who has a deep dark past of horrible things that have happen to her. Married to the rich husband because that is what she was brought up to do. Until she meets Sam the school teacher .

Parts of this book had me so pissed off that i could have thrown my kindle across the room . Others had me wanting to pull Kendra close and hug her and tell her everything

Another must-read from Jettie Woodruff!

I loved this book! Kendra overcame a rough childhood, and it made her who she was, someone who loved sex. She suffered through a loveless marriage the best way she could. She survived, the only way she knew how, by pleasing herself. This
was a fantastic book, that I definitely recommend.

Talk about a fucked up book!

It got my blood pressure sky rocketing! It made me swoon! It made me want to stab half the characters! It made me cry and I loved it.
But yes, it is VERY fucked up!

I should've gone with my instincts when the cover of this book kinda grossed me out.

To cause to feel comfortable at home; make domestic.
To adopt or make fit for domestic use or life.
To bring down to the level of the ordinary person.
In one way or another, each definition applies to Kendra, the main character in Jettie Woodruff’s newest release, Domesticated. On the surface, Kendra doesn’t seem to embody any meaning of the term, but as her façade is stripped away, and society’s expectations are no longer a cross to bear, readers and Kendra herself will soon realize

Domesticated. Jettie Woodruff. 4.5 stars

Another blow away book from Jettie. I hadn't heard anything about this book. It hasn't been well publicised at all, so when I received a copy and there was not even a synopsis on Goodreads so I had absolutely no idea what this book was about or if it was just a rush job to fill in between books. I have to say though that this is one of Jetties best books she has wrote. Barring in mind she has wrote some outstanding books, her books just keep getting bette

Once again Jettie Woodruff does not disappoint....she has a very unique writing style that is simply genius. It's different but in a scratch your head and think "what the heck did I just read" kinda way that has you begging for more. Literally, I was begging for chapter after chapter. She always has those characters that you love to know the ones that make you want to throw your e-reader across the room.
Ok so now onto this always if you have read my reviews before you know

HOLY AMAZEBALLZ!! Jettie really out did herself with this one. The first book by Jettie was Shhh..Mack's side and I loved it but this book just blew that right out of the water for me. I found it to be extremely well done. TO talk about such a sensitive and sick topic with Kendra being a 4 year old girl being abused by her stepmother to becoming an adult to rise above and beyond all evil. I find that if Jettie would have done anything different to this book or made the ending a little different ...more

This was a unique story, with unique characters (thank god!), and it was enjoyable!
At first I didn't know how to take Kendra, a girl born to privilege and raised to continue the thoroughbred of her heritage. Following in the foot-steps that her family pushed her to, she realizes she's miserable: she hates her "friends", she hates her "duties", and she's not exactly happy with her marriage. Thankfully, she has planned a vac

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

I have read a number of Ms Woodruff's books, so had very high expectations. I was not disappointed by the storyline - it was deeply disturbing, complex, sensual, erotic, and sometimes sweet. It dealt with some terrible issues, and was uncomfortable reading at times, but so worthwhile. I like a book that really makes me think about the intended, and unintended consequences of actions. Sam was undoubtedly gorgeous, and Kendr

Review: Stopping at 34%. Spoilers and a rant review ahead. The things I say in this review may or may not hurt your feelings but just so you know it is my opinion and I'm not sorry if you don't like it. You have been warned.

When I read the blurb of this I thought this sounds like an interesting read. I am just starting to read Dark novels so I'm not too experienced with them. This one sounded good enough that I would give it a shot.

This only my second book by Jettie, the first being Underestimated. With that being said I was hoping for dark & edgy. This one not being as dark but totally edgy. This was a wild ride filled with steamy scenes that will melt your panties and secrets of past that will make you gasp.

Kendra. Let's just say she's a complete train wreck. Made of money and not really relatable at first. Her proper stuck up facade hiding her damaged past. As the story

Dark lovers beware!!!! This is not dark romance or dark erotica!!! It is strange, bizarre and entertaining but NOT dark.

The synopsis makes this sound like a dark erotica so at first I was very frustrated. Once I accepted the fact that this was not in the genre I was expecting, I was able to focus on and enjoy this very odd, bizarre, entertaining story. I've never read about a character like Kendra - ever! This woman is one messed up bitch; I loved her! Basically, the book starts out with her pr

I've read only one other book by Jettie Woodruff prior to this. It was All For Maddie, which I really loved. Domesticated is on a whole other playing field. So many emotions going on here. This book leaves you feeling all kinds of feels. I felt hot at times, horrified and pissed at others. In other words, it's a complete MIND FUCK in which I absolutely LOVED.

I was gifted this book for a fair and honest review. I typically don't read "dark" books but this one was different. Domesticated had a little bit of dark and light. I have to admit there were a few parts of the book that were hard for me to get through, but I'm glad I kept reading. The main character, Kendra is pretty messed up. What you see on the outside is completely different from what is really on the inside. My heart broke for her. All through her childhood she was ignored, no one would l ...more
