Straight up, I usually avoid Domme books like the plague. They just aren't my thing, but something about this book had me intrigued and I figured I'd give it a chance.


Julia is a part time Domme who is submissive to her Police detective husband Garrison. Garrison is bi-sexual and is working closely with Keaton on a serial murder case. Keaton is a lawyer and also bi-sexual and happens to be submissive and one of Julia's clients. So begin

For me the serial killer angle made this story worth the read! Garrison is a detective and Keaton is a DA. Professionally, as a team, they are unstoppable! The chemistry between the two, how they feed off each other at crime scenes, and their ability to work without stealing the each other's thunder of course is fodder for personal attraction.

Keaton is alpha male and chose not to be so in the bedroom. He is the perfect partner for Garrison and his wife, Julia, who is a domme.

4.5 Star review of Flawed by Rachael Orman
This was a new author to me. Not sure why I haven’t read Ms Orman before but I will certainly be looking into her books. I really enjoyed Flawed which is in the romantic suspense genre and was an extremely hot read.
Julia is a Domme for hire during the summer and the rest of the year she is a teacher. However she is a Domme with a difference: in her own bedroom she submits to her husband Garrison.

This book isn't the type of genre I normally read and I have to say I enjoyed the story very much. We have Julia who married to Garrison and they are both doms in the bedroom. Julia submits to her husband and to get her domme satisfaction she meets different submissive's on the side at the local hotel. Enter Keaton who has a crush on Garrison and is one of Julia's clients!! Yup, Who saw that coming?? So everything comes out light and they all hook up. I wasn't sure how this dynamic was going to ...more

This was good. There was no lag in the story. Julia knows what she likes and is careful about it. Garrison loves his wife. Keaton is a prosecutor for the state....a counselor if you will. I enjoyed his post in this story. Not a bad read. Of course you knew where this was going and I knew what was going to happen before it happened...what's new??

I received this ARC from the publisher via Net Galley for my honest review.

Great chemisty

Julia and Keaton are wonderful together and they love each other very much. Both are attracted to Keaton and have known him for a while but it seems that they haven't all been together before, which seems very unlikely situation. Even so, it was an interesting meeting between the three and it sparked an amazingly sexy beginning. If you are into poly relationships, then this is a great story with just enough drama and suspense to make it more than erotica. The serial killer twist wa

Love in the Midst of Danger

A great story of a Dominant man and his wife who is a career Domme Switch, who complete their circle with another submissive man. A bit of intrigue, mystery and adventure lend well to this BDSM Menage Erotica story. Exciting and super hot. Highly recommended for the not so faint of heart.

Hot damn, she did it again!!!
I'm a huge fan of this author, I make no secret of that so I was so excited to get the opportunity to read it early.
Each character is likeable. Hell, Garrison and Keaton are both hot as hell and Julia, well, what can I say? She's one very lucky woman.
Julia is a school teacher and a Domme during the holidays to bring in extra money given her husband Garrison's income as a detective doesn't bring in enough for them to survive alone. Reading what her clients want and

4.5 stars
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

I love Orman books. This one did not disappoint. The characters are well developed and the story flows easily.

Julia, Garrison and Keaton are all living their lives - doing what they love and trying to figure out how to be happy.

I love that Julia is both Domme and sub. I think that it gives her a unique experience and with her skills, she is able to fulfill many desires. I also really like that

The depth of this book surprised me. I was expecting a lot of sex with very little story line (no offense to the writer, but that's been my experience with these types of books) but instead I was very pleasantly surprised. Sure there was lots of sex, but there was also a great story line!

Julia is a Domme for hire, a first grade teacher and a submissive to her bisexual husband. She does not have sexual relationships with the men who hire her as a Domme, instead she simply provides them with what

So many things to like in this book. The sex scenes were hot. H. O. T. The kink was good, integrated within the story, integral to the plot, but not overwhelming. The emotions of all three characters made the relationship between them all. No, they don't expect everything to be roses all the time. They expect problems and issues, but they all have a desire to work through them. A realistic viewpoint. The seria

Flawed by Rachel Orman takes us on a murder mystery inside of the BDSM Domme/Sub culture. Julia is a Mistress that has a no sex relationship with her clients. She gives her clients what they need (i.e. a release in the form of kink, without sex) She is married to Garrison, a homicide detective who is also bi-sexual. The other main character is Keaton, the District Attorney, who is a client of Julia's. Although these three know each other separately, they don't know that they know each other. (Di ...more

Julia has the best of both worlds. She is a Mistress for hire. She gives men what they need by submitting to her and she gets her fill of being Dominate, but at home she is the one to submit. Garrison, Julia's husband, is the Dominate in their relationship. Garrison is a police detective. His personal life has never intermixed with his professional life until Keaton. The sexy lawyer Garrison has had his eye on for someti

Julia and Garrison are a happily married couple. Julia is a professional Domme, and her husband is a cop—and Dom. They are perfectly content with their off the charts love life, until a sub gets both their attention.

Keaton’s a lawyer, and he and Garrison have crossed paths professionally. There is an underlying attraction between the two, but Garrison thinks there could possibly be more than just their attraction to one another. This ménage is quite different from what I’ve read before. I loved

I've read a lot from Rachael Orman, so I know what to expect, but this is over the top hot. Her characters are so engaging and their dynamic together is so engrossing, it made me want to BE Julia! Please, oh Please can I???
I grew up on Harlequin Historical Romances, then I moved murder mysters, then I found the smut and FLAWED brings two of my favorite genres together. Not only is this smoking hot M/F/M and M/M/F but there's also a serial killer on the loose...and he's after Do

Reading this book on a packed commuter train on the way in to work was a mistake because I arrived at the office all hot and bothered. Flawed is off the charts hot and steamy. The erotic scenes and relationship between Garrison, Julia and Keaton pushed all my buttons. I wanted to be Julia.

This story is told from the point of view of each of our three lead characters and it works really well especially when it comes to Garris

Never been a fan of female domme, or male to male but Rachel you've made me fan. This story is amazing to say the least. I enjoy that Julia, Garrison and Keaton the chemistry they shared. Julia is a Domme but a submissive at the same time. Learning about how her two personalities where and how she managed both was very intriguing to me. Garrison a detective and a Dom, he controlled any room with his presence. Keaton a pit bull law

Rachael Orman once again delivers a mighty fine book. One that will keep you mesmerized til the very end. FLAWED is a terrific erotic thriller which takes the reader inside the marriage of a seemingly "normal" couple. Garrison is a detective and Julia a teacher. During her teaching breaks, she however works as a domme. This second job normally doesn't interfere in her marriage to Garrison, but when a serial killer starts murdering dommes, Garrison fears his wife may be next. Add in Keaton who is ...more

Julia and Garrison are married. Julia is a Domme but, not with Garrison. She is submissive in the bedroom with her husband. Garrison is bisexual but, has never mixed up his married life until Keaton. Oh and when you mix in a little suspense then this makes for a very good b

Garrison and Julia have a rather different marriage. They are searching for something else to make their marriage whole. Julia being a part time Domme, doles out pain to her clients but when she is with Garrison the roles are reversed. Their relationship gets rather interesting when they bring Keaton into their fold.

Flawed is a sizzling hot read about three people who find love when they weren't expecting it. I loved that Julia was a Domme who only submitted to her husband Garrison. She is strong and sassy and so very in love with her husband. Garrison is a detective investigating a serial killer who turns out to be after his wife. In the process of the investigation he works closely with Keaton who is the DA on the case. There is some serious chemistry between them and when it turns out that Keaton is one ...more

Well Rachael Orman has done it again, I absolutely loved this book FLAWED. The dynamic between the three main characters was astounding . Full of sexy scenes MF,MMF and MM, and my favourite subject of Dom/switch/sub.
I don't normally read Domme literature ,but because this was a mixture of everything , I found it really enjoyable to read.
FLAWED is a real page turner, full of sexiness, sassiness, wit, laughter and a little bit of sorrow all this and there's a damn murderer on the loose.

Absolutely love this book! I have never read a book that had BDSM with
a side of suspense. All the characters mesh very well without stealing
each others thunder. This book was equally hot and suspenseful.

This author has blown me away once again with this book! I can't wait
to see what's up her sleeve next!
