Where to start... I know this book is going to get some extremely critical reviews. The warnings are there in the description, this book contains cheating so if you don't like that in your reading THEN DON'T READ THIS AND THEN SLAM THE CHEATING IN A REVIEW.

While I do not condone cheating in any way. I do not mind it in my reading choices. Its a part of life, not a great part, but all parts of life are not great.

Wow! I have read two other stories from Ms. Witt, but this was nothing like those! It was hot and kinky and on the darker side!

“No one knew how deep my cravings ran, probably not even myself.”

Meredith has a lonely life. She is a wife and mother, president of the PTA, but she is looking for more. Something her husband can’t and won’t give her. So, she goes elsewhere to find it.

“Gregor was my Eden, beautiful and forbidden…”

Gregor is a dominant. He is her Sir. He trains her how to be a submissive.

J.M. Witt is a new author for me and the teaser for this book caught my attention right away.

Meredith Nichols is the PTA president and on the outside a good Mom and wife. In the bedroom, she has secret desires that unfortunately her husband does not share. Online she meets Gregor Thompson and he is a perfect dominant with one problem, he also is a good father and husband although his wife is also not interested in his fantasies either. After a few emails, they decide to meet in person and that

If you don't like cheating then this book isn't for you but I think you should give it a try because it does show a different take on relationships.
You have a woman who is lonely in her marriage and a husband is checked out.
Meredith has BDSM desires while Todd her husband doesn't enjoy them.
She signed up for a site for research as she was wanting to get into writing.
Enter Gregor who is also married to a woman kinda like Todd.
They strike up a fast friendship and soon the fun begin.

I am sitting to write this review and I am still a bit breathless after reading My Secret Submission. This was my first book by JM Witt. I am so excited to have discovered her! My Secret Submission was everything that the blurb said it would be and more.

The entire book was told from the POV of Meredith Nichols. Meredith is an at home mom of three young kiddos. She's President of the PTA and well as a wife in a loveless marriage. Meredith's husband works late a lot and is out of town all the time

My Secret Submission is the first book of author J. M. Witt who I had the opportunity to read and I can say that I really liked it. The title quite intrigued me and that made me want to read this book as soon as possible and I’m glad I did it.

Don’t shoot me for loving this Taboo Romance! I don’t agree with cheating and I have been married for over 38 years.

I thought I had read at least one of J. M. Witt’s books but apparently I was mistaken. Maybe it is because I have been wanting to read one of her books for a while now.

This is a story about a woman (Meredith Nichols) that is being unfulfilled by her husband (Todd). She asks for more but, Tod says he can’t/won’t do what she is asking. I do see Meredith trying and I really never fe

This is my favourite book by this author so far. I absolutely loved it. Although it's a big book I inhaled this in a day and a night.

Meredith and Todd are like a lot of couples in that one wants more than the other does in the bedroom. Unfortunately Meredith decides to find it elsewhere hence she meets Gregor through an online site. Gregors also married. What happens next is a brilliant story full of twists that had me gasping.

This book was packed full of all kinds of emotions!! Meredith was lonely and looking for something opposite of the vanilla life she had been living. She turns to the Internet in hopes of filling the void. Gregor was a very capable and commanding Dom. A very hot, powerful taboo read with just the right amount of humor thrown in.

With that said, if you can't read those type of books then don't pick up this one. This one hooked me from the beginning. I must say that what Meredith and Gregor have is full of passion,love and respect. Yes they might have done it the wrong or so some may say.

WOW! I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't even close to what I just read. And even worse, I'm not fully clear about how I'm feeling after finishing it, as it's totally different than J.M Witt's other books. Meredith is a wife, mother, and president of the PTA, but she still finds herself yearning for something more as she's very lonely. She's tried to get her husband to spice up their sex life, and he isn't willing to act out her secret fantasies. She first comes into contact with Gr ...more

She goes onto a website called KinkyFodder to see what's out there, not really sure what's going on. She finds one profile and starts talking to 'him', Gregor. Watching the interplay between them as they email back and forth both on KinkyFodder and outside of that on personal emails proves to be highly entertaining.

4.5 stars - "There's no lonelier existence than being a stay at home mom and a traveling widow."


With those word, J.M. opened up a world of imagination and drew us into the world of a lonely housewife named Meredith and her distressed over her husband's constant travel and his inability to give her what she craved in the bedroom.

This book was different then I expected when I read what it was about but I still enjoyed the BDSM and interaction between Meredith and Gregor. So many secrets, sneaking off to see each other, emails, hotel rooms, late night meeting in parks or the backseat of the pickup.

You may look at this book as the characters cheating or you can look at it how it is. Sometimes you try your hardest with your spouse and they still can’t meet your desires or needs no matter how much you ask. Everyone deserves

I received a copy for an honest review. Meredith's marriage is dull and though she doesn't want to stray,she wants more out of life and for herself. She opens an account on an online dating site to explore her sexuality and she meets Gregor, he's smart, funny, mysterious and will help her explore her kinky side. Their chemistry is off the charts. The whole story is told by Meredith and her POV and you know very little about Gregor's wife and his "other" life. Maybe there is a few more chapters t ...more

My Secret Submission was unlike anything else that Ms. Witt has written before and I commend her for branching out and trying something new. I know that this book will not be loved or even liked by everyone but I adored it. It does contain cheating and consensual BDSM so if these are hard limits for you heed the warning the author gives. For me, the warning just ensures that I will like it even more.

I loved it from beginning to end. Meredith was in a dead end marriage for many years.
She wasn't getting what she needed and craved from her husband. He was always out of town on business and when he was home, he didn't want give her what her body craved. It was more of a marriage of convenience then anything else.
