I shamed my name. I am a whore. I am a disgrace. I’m all the things my mother made me. I wear my badge with pride because I know the truth, and only those worth a damn see me for who I am, not the label I choose to hide behind.
I am a Domme. I would still rather be a whore than a hypocrite like my mother, or a victim like the daughter she raised me to be.
As Mistress Selin

You know, when I read Dee Palmer's first book (Never A Choice) I loved it. I knew it was a part of a trilogy and eagerly hoped to get the chance to review the second book (Always A Choice). I did and it was even better!

As the trilogy came to an end with the third book (The Only Choice) I was not only invested in the characters but the sub-characters too. So I was overjoyed to hear about a new book, tied to the trilogy but that could be read as a standalone. Ethan's Fall was brilliant!

I wasn't sure what to expect with Disgrace, as the blurb was interesting and I haven't read this author before. In the end, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It started a little slow for me, so I was a bit worried at first, but once it picked up, I was hooked.

Sam has a bad past. Though that past lead her to be a dominatrix, which she enjoys. When Jason, a Dom himself, decides he wants Sam and for her to be a switch, she is scared to become vulnerable. Will Sam be able

Dee Palmer has a great way with words and this book proves it. This is book one in a trilogy.

Sams abusive mother has been using her for her own financial gain. As soon as Sam reaches eighteen she leaves and throws herself into being a Dominatrix as Mistress Selina. She works in a BDSM club. Jason the owner of the BDSM wants Sam but can one of the Doms give up control??

Great storyline with characters I loved. I'm so looking forward to reading more of this series.

There was no putting this book down once I started it. I went into this not knowing that it was part of a series, and yes, there are a couple of characters who obviously already had their time in the spotlight sharing their own love story, but it was difficult to lament the fact that I didn't get to read the series in order. Why? Because Sam and Jason and their story

Sam has had a crap life. She was born into a life that her mother started and tormented her in. The experiences and what she suffered through has made her who she is. All Sam knows is being used and that abuse is a normal part of her life. Meeting Leon, she finds her way into being something more.

Jason wants Sam but two Doms don’t work so in order to have her she must become his sub. Blowing back into Sam’s past she doesn’t know if she can give Jason what he wants. T

This was a very enjoyable read about Sam, a Dominatrix and Jason, an extremely compelling Dom. Jason wants Sam and is pretty relentless in his pursuit. Sam has strong reservations about every submitting to any man given her past so wants to run as far from Jason as possible when he suggests she Switches for him. There was a lot of story in this book and I felt especially bad for Sam and all she endured growing up. Great chemistry between Sam and Jason and I always enjoyed a well written book inv ...more

This defines sexual chemistry. It's an angst filled novel. Heartbreaking childhood (teenage Hood?) turns Sam into the person she is and now finds herself submitting to the illustrious Jason who is yum to say the least.

Loved it.

Title: Disgrace
Author: Dee Palmer
Series: Disgrace #1 (spin off of The Choices trilogy)
Genre: erotic romance, suspense
Themes: BDSM
Heat: 3/5
Rating: 3/5

Forget boy scout, he is more like a bondage ninja.

I have to say I went into this book expecting something completely different. From the synopsis, I believed I would be indulging in a highly erotic battle of power, with little substance other than a book full of wet dream material. And although this had elements of that, particularly the first 50%,

DISGRACE is an intense erotic romance with a handful of BDSM , a bit on the dark side with some graphic violence and a lot emotional push and pulls. This book is not for the very faint of hearts, but I was truly impressed by the amazing storytelling.

Grace was abused from a very young age, by her Mom, who pimped her to Richard, a guy from a reputable family . Both of them crushed her youth.

She left home and her old self when she turned eighteen, and she met her best friend Leon. Ten years later

Having read all of Dee Palmers Choice's trilogy and Ethans Fall i couldn't wait to read Disgrace. While Disgrace can be read as a standalone it does tie in with the Choice's trilogy and it was great to catch up with past characters.

As is the norm with this author this book is a bdsm novel and so much more. What i love most about these books is that each character brings something new and interesting. In Disgrace we get to know all about "Mistress Selina" aka Sam and Jason, the owner of the club

Sam left home at the age of eighteen leaving a terrible mother who mental and verbally abused her. Additionally she left the abuse of the boyfriend who her mother pushed her to date knowing he was not only physically abusing her but also taking parts of her she wasn't ready to give. She changed her name from Grace to Samantha and became another person. A stronger person.

This is the first book I have read by this author, and I have been told is good, because this is the “steamiest” of them all… and if that is the case, she needs to keep writing this genre…because she is GOOOD at it.

Disgrace by Dee Palmer was a sexy and erotic 5 star read.

The beginning of Disgrace is heartbreaking, we get a glimpse into Grace’s childhood and her abusive relationship with the man she loved. At 18 she left without ever looking back.
She has since then started a new life, changed her name to Sam and has gone through training to be a dominatrix and is highly sought after.

This book is about two people who come together and have an incredible cemetery, while one pursues the other runs.
We follow Sam and Jason on their journey of highs & lows, inner struggles & frustrations, love and friendships.
Watch as they grow but not just as a couple but also as individuals.

Sam's past is bad and dark filled with mental and physical abuse from both her mother and her first boyfriend.
At 18 she runs away to start anew, this leads to her new friend and job in a private club as

Wow! Just WOW!

This book is a 6 star hot as hell read. I could not put it down!

This book sits in between the end of The Only Choice and before the epilogue. If you haven't read The Choices trilogy then you should but it's not a necessity to enjoy this book; you're just missing out on a really good trilogy!! This is where we first meet the characters of Jason and Sam / Mistress Selina.

In Disgrace Jason & Sam get to tell their story...I'm not going to give too much away as the synopsis for the book

I’ve been thinking long and hard about where I wanted to start with this review. Words like Wow, Stupendous or Remarkable,just don’t do this book justice. It was like being on the world’s biggest supercoaster from start to finish. Honestly, I became a huge fan and you can bet I’m going back to review the series from the beginning.

I love how the title is a pun on the character's real name, Grace. The protagonist, Richard tried desperately to disgrace the female lead as much as he could in the past and the present. He may have succeeded in the past into humiliating her into a state of despair but not anymore. Sam (Grace) emerged to find her true self with self-confidence and ingenuity despite having no support from even her own mother.
