Start your review of Testing Tom
This is one of the better femdom stories I have read in the genre. Tom didn’t get put through the paces as much as I thought he would be, but I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. The first half of the story was like a slow burn, and it really heated up towards the end.

I realise this is fiction, but I had an issue with some of the BDSM practices, especially due to the fact than the main character was supposedly a trained professional domme. However, I am not going to rip those aspects apart as, a

In the books that I have read by erotica author Lucy Felthouse, what stands out to me are her unique stories peopled with characters engaging in a version of BDSM that is probably more representative of the majority of real-life practitioners than what is commonly portrayed in books of that genre. They include some aspects of power exchange and moderate to severe corporal punishment, but nothing too extreme. Her latest novella, Testing Tom, is a case in point.

At its core, this is a HEA femdom lo

Delicious and romantic side of femdom! Ms. Felthouse shows a more realistic D/s dynamic between a Domme and her sub. In Testing Tom, Katrina's heart is broken as her submissive tosses her over for a "normal" relationship. It came out of left field. Now Tom is back and begging for a second chance.

This could be a set up for a depraved revenge punishment as well as some harsh grudge fucking. (Not that there is anything wrong with that scenario because it's just as tempting for me.) Instead, Ms. Fel

Testing Tom is a short and sexy femdom novella that I really enjoyed. It's only a quick read, but it's really well written and it is very sexy. This is the second book that I've read by Lucy Felthouse and she is a talented author - and she sure knows how to write BDSM scenes that are hotter than hell!
Katrina was heartbroken when she was dumped by her submissive, Tom, for a vanilla woman. So when he turns up on her doorstep months later wanting a second chance, Katrina is understandably wary. The

Testing Tom by Lucy Felthouse
Holy Cow! What kind of tests would you put someone thru to prove they wanted to get back together with you? Would you let someone back into your heart after they broke it into a million pieces? Well Katrina has decided to put Tom to the test after he left her for a vanilla relationship. Tom would do anything to be back with Katrina and into her lifestyle. The only thing Katrina is worried about is will her heart be broken again. This was an awesome short story by Luc

Katrina is a dominatrix and an excellent one. Tom was the love of her life who foolishly left her to try a vanilla relationship. Realising his mistake, he begs Katrina to take him back but Katrina isn't going to let it be easy for Tom. She needs to know that he will never hurt her again and for that to happen, Tom needs to be tested. This sexy short story packs in plenty of Dom/sub play and will keep you squirming saucily throughout.

Ms Felthouse certainly cranks up the sexy in this book, she also manages a good sprinkle of romance and love, not easy with the themes she’s dealing with. If you like a well written BDSM novella with lots of heart and angst that still feels real, then I recommend Testing Tom.

This was a sexy juicy hot BDSM HEA story. Yes, this is a romance and love story. I enjoyed this sweet novella felt the angst and love the heroine was going through. There was plenty of Dom/sub play, if you are a hardcore BDSM reader; then this book is not for you. Testing Tom showed readers a world where love in a relationship can be reborn.

This is a sexy little story. I liked how Katrina handled Tom and the way he left her . This story could have gone terribly bad but the author did a great job of balancing out Katrina's need for revenge and punishment to making things right and work for them. ...more
