When wannabe sub Jennifer Berklee calls him Master and begs him to flog her, PI Logan Powell knows all his military training won’t be enough to keep his jaded heart safe.

Private investigator Logan Powell does the women of the world a favor by avoiding emotional entanglements. They deserve to be loved and cherished. And he’s not capable of it.

That belief is challenged when

4* BDSM guide for newbie... kind of. STARS!

Sierra Cartwright is well-know author for BDSM theme. I haven't read Initiation in other media, so this is my first time. I wouldn't categorize this book as a romance story because I feel this book only focus for exploring the BDSM side for newbie. Yeah, kinda like that. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it very much even with some minor 'complaints'.

The story itself didn't tell much. Mostly focused on how Jennifer Berklee; a newbie in BDSM (never have a real sce

I must admit, I'm really not into books with BDSM as I find this too hot to handle. I can take erotic romance stories, but those with floggers and submission topics, I kind of felt weird. The first and last book I read of this kind was the Fifty Shades series. But there's always a second time, right?

I got Initiation by Sierra Cartwright because I liked the premise. It was interesting to read about a woman who had been so curious about BDSM that she decided to join a "scene" in a play party. Sadl

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

4.5* of sexiness and fabulous chemistry!

Yum, yum, yum! I love this kind of story. Not only is a wonderful connection between the leads, but as well as the everyday humour and informality of new friends, we are given an insight into BDSM. The lack of unnecessary (imo) punishment of a cheeky newbie sub, and the obvious pleasure that the two take in each other's company makes for a really, really enjoyable read. It is simpl

This story has been released before but now it's padded out and a lot more hotness added!
Jennifer is a wannabe sub and goes to the club with her friends. She scenes with Master Simon with really does nothing for her. Master Logan sees her leaving, helps her on with her coat and gives him his number.
A party is organised where they are both to attend. When Logan arrives he finds he is the first to get there. Eventually Jennifer turns up. They are the only people at the party. They both recieved

It seems like the world has fallen into a BDSM frenzy and everyone wants to be a part of it. But how to tell from those who are serious about it or who just jumped on the wagon? Logan has not been part of the scene since his ex eft and isn’t all that sure he really wants to open himself to that hurt again. When he lays eyes on Jennifer at a mutual friend’s play party- he can’t seem to get her off his mind. After a weekend setup by their ‘well-meaning’ friends Jennifer realizes t

I am totally having a fangirl moment here. First of all, I positively love Sierra Cartwright. Not only is she a completely amazing author and I have everything she's written, but she's am amazing person as well. Just a truly warm and wonderful human being. That being said, can I give you an unbiased review of this book? Absolutely. That's my job. Just like an author's is to write the best work they can every time, that's my job as a reviewer/blogger.

Am I going to give this book a 5 orgasm rating

Sierra has done it again and I'm in love <3
It's a story about Logan and Jennifer :) Logan has a mysterious job and a well known BDSM reputation, and Jennifer is business woman, with a bitter taste of past relationship and a newfound taste for BDSM.

This is a story about what happens when you let your desires come true (with a little help from mutual friends and an intentional set up), when you put your faith in a stranger, give a voice to your fantasies, dare to try and at the end gather the cour

Wish it were longer, absolutely enjoyed meeting Master Logan and Jennifer.
Immediately warmed to Logan, we get a great oversight of him, on why he didn’t ‘do’ relationships and we learn a bit more about him through Jennifer.
Jennifer is a great lady, very intrigued with the BDSM scene, she has a great group of friends who help her to get over her fears, and to make her face them head on.
Loved the deviousness of Joe and Noelle, they were friends first and foremost of Logan and Jennifer, but also co

This book was previously read as part of an anthology but has now been expanded. We get to delve a bit deeper into Logan and Jennifer's relationship. It was a great read to begin with but the expansion has taken the heat level up several notches. Scorching!! Well meaning friends conspire to bring these two together after a lack lustre first step into BDSM for Jennifer. Master Logan does not disappoint Jennifer, once she was over the initial shock of being alone with him. Her world of BDSM just o ...more

Wow! I loved Sierra Cartwright's Master Class: Initiation! This is one sexy and very intense read!!! Logan is a Master I would love to play with! He is incredibly hot, and the chemistry between him and Jennifer is incredible! This new version of Initiation goes more into their relationship! This was initially released in the Bound, Spanked and Loved Anthology but wow did Sierra add some steam to this one! Where can I find me a Logan...... ❤️❤️❤️

I had some mixed feelings about this book. Overall I did enjoy it - it was hot and sexy and I liked the characters. Jennifer Berklee has been curious about BDSM and her friend finally gets her to attend a play party where she has a less than satisfying experience. Logan Powell sees her - he's been putting most of his energies in his work and hasn't been interested in playing or a relationship since his last one crashed and burned. But something about Jennifer intrigues him, and he gets an opport ...more

Honest to god, no one writes a hotter, more addicting, intense, ‘welcome’ to a BDSM read, than Sierra Cartwright. Initiation is just that. Jennifer is new to the BDSM scene, but isn’t ignorant or dumb. None of this authors women are. It’s one of the greatest things about her writing. All her female leads are smart, professional and driven. Jennifer knows it’s something she wants to pursue, but has a pretty disappointing start. Enter Logan Powell. Really, there should be background music right no ...more

This book has things that I like, it's erotic with BDSM, has a hot alpha male, but I have a hard time dealing with a situation where there wasn't enough time for a newbie to garner trust with the person they are submitting too. That is especially true with the level that they went to in their short time together.

This would have been really great had the story took place over a longer period of time with them steadily building up to more and more, especially since she was new to the scene. Watch

I enjoyed this book right until the end.

The sentence ended, I thought a chapter was turning and it turned out to be the book was finished… almost mid thought, and certainly with no denouement. I thought maybe it was merely an abrupt cliffhanger, but when I checked out book 2 in the series, the story and characters were not related. Most frustrating. Seriously, I was at 5 stars for the enjoyment of the rest of the book, but the ending (or, rather, the lack of it) ruined it.

When the author informed us that she was going to be taking the story we all loved from the anthology and expand on it to create a longer series version. Well I was hesitant but boy she didn't disappoint.

This extended edition is sexy as hell and allows us to go deeper into Logan and Jennifer's story. And boy does Sierra turn up the heat. When their friends set them up Jennifer's safe little world is turned upside down by master Logan. And once her eyes are open to a whole new world well there's

I really enjoyed this book. Jennifer was a wonderful character. I liked how independent, smart en sassy she was, but not annoying. I loved about her journey into BDSM, she was willing to try, but also a bit scared and nervous. I felt really natural.

Loved Logan and careful he was of Jennifer and taking it slow, but also pushing a little bit.

There was good chemistry together and the book also made me laugh out loud a few times.

Awesome storyline

Jennifer decides after seeing a movie on BDSM that she wants to try it. She meets. Master Logan and they hit it off. I loved the way the BDSM was explained in this book. It was a great book with a lot of character.

Rene’s Thoughts:

☞ When I started reading I began having déjà vu, until I remembered that this novel had been published before as a Valentine’s Day novella and part of an anthology – Bound, Spanked and Loved: Fourteen Kinky Valentine’s Day Stories. I had of course read it because, Sierra writes something and I read it! The novella has since been expanded, it is now hotter and with deep character development!

When I am in the mood for an erotic romance, there are a handful of authors that I know will never disappoint. One of which is the fabulous Sierra Cartwright. I know that when I pick up one of her books I'll instantly fall in love with the hero and immediately want to be the heroine. Her characters are always strong and open with their various levels of kink. Like every other of Sierra's books, Initiation had me hooked from the very first page. Logan and Jennifer... Where do I start? Their chemi ...more
