Jessica ❥Chatterbooks Book Blog❥
This is the first book I have read by Stacey Lynn, and what a great introduction to her writing it was! This is a story of a woman discovering a new side to herself, and a man reclaiming a part of himself that he has been suppressing. It is also the story of a man and a woman learning to trust again. Engaging, emotional, informative, and kinky, Dominate Me is definitely a worthwhile read!!

Great start to a new series. Club Luminous sounds like a cool place to play. Haley is new to the actual world of BDSM, but she's done her research and even talked with owner Master Dylan. He's agreed to help her find a Dom. He asks his friend and fellow Dom Jensen. Jensen hasn't had a sub in years since tragedy almost befell his last sub. Jensen agrees to meet her, and the rest is history. Of course there's drama with her ex-husband and a woman from his past who d

This book is so steamy hot! I made sure to read it nice and slow so I could enjoy every delightful word.

This author knows how to lay on the sizzling heat and entice us with a smoking hot guy that is looking for love, but doesn't know it. Taking on a trainee in the domination world.... Oh yes, please, sir! Jensen is a wet dream!

This book is loaded with delicious scenes that leaves you wondering where you can find a Jensen to call your own! Plenty of dirty talking, passion, and a sweet HEA that m
DOMINATE ME is my very first read from this author AND it's the start of a delicious new series called Luminous. A toe-curling romance bursting with sensuality with every turn of the page, DOMINATE ME had my heart pounding and cheeks blushing from beginning to end. Master Jensen was just all-around YUMMY and Haley had this intense curiosity about her that made her a very lovable heroine. Together these two created sparks from cover to cover.

"I am yours. Everything I am is for you. Always."

I was in the mood for a hot read and Dominate Me had just landed on my Kindle so I decided I'd give it a try. I've not read this author before and had no idea what to expect. New fan, right here! This was so much more than a hot read (don't get me wrong, it was way hot!) but more than that it was an incredible story with these fantastic characters with real depth and emotion and I loved every single second of it.

I loved these characters, Jensen and Haley were fantastic. Haley was just this real
For starters, let me just say that Jensen was absolutely delicious. I loved everything about this man. When Jensen and Haley meet he is only going to train her as a sub. There WILL NOT be a relationship between the two. Well that lasts all of about two minutes lol. As he gets to know Haley he realizes she may be the perfect woman for him.

I also liked Haley a lot although she really confused me sometimes with her push/pull. I did love how well she knew herself and what she needed. She was never

I'm always excited about a new BDSM series, especially when it is the start of a new series written by an author I have enjoyed reading previously. Dominate Me begins Stacey Lynn's new Luminous series.

This was a great read from Stacey Lynn, I am a huge fan of her FIRESIDE SERIES, as with that series this story had an emotional punch but it superseded my expectations with the chemistry between Haley & Jensen, they needed one another more than either of them knew.

I was introduced to Stacey Lynn through her Fireside Series, which I have really enjoyed. Dominate Me is pretty different from that so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and give it a go. I'm so glad I did. Apparently I've been missing a well written Dom book because I devoured this one.

Dominate me is the first book I read by Stacey Lynn. It was hot , sexy and Kinky.

Haley and Jensen are great together, explosive even, because the sex scenes between them are intense.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into with this book. I complained to my friends that I was looking for a complete alpha, someone absolutely dominating, someone who would consume me. Boy did Lynn deliver. Jensen was commanding, caring, and confident- everything I love in an alpha.

My favorite part of this book was reading Jensen's POV. While Haley was cute, quirky and a bit shaky with her confidence the Jensen chapters blew me away. His personality was absolutely palpable. I lived to read

This is my first novel that I've read written by Stacey Lynn and I'm so glad that I did. Dominate Me has so much going for it in terms of elements found in the story that it kept me captivated from start to finish. This is the type of book that will cater to some of the hidden desires that so many of us keep away from the world in the hopes of not being judged, but at the same time, it takes us through the process of BDSM in a lighter to

Dominate Me by Stacey Lynn literally blew me away. Erotic romance have always been my favorite and Stacey did not disappoint. This was my first book by Stacey, and I already know it won’t be my last.
I won’t lie and say I wasn’t apprehensive when I first started Dominate Me because I was. With so many books about BDSM coming out, I worried it would be the same as some others I’ve read. But, a huge but here, Dominate Me was nothing like I expected. For starters, page one gave me all I needed.

"I know the price of love and I'm not willing to pay it. I dominated her body and she enthralled my heart. But I have to walk away before I ruin the one I love".

I loved this story, it was well-paced with engaging and captivating characters. Although BDSM stories are a bit passé in my opinion, this book was well worth reading. It had the right balance between sensuality and genuine tenderness. The development of the main characters’ relationship is the focal point of this story. The sexy s

This was my first book to read by Stacey Lynn and I am now a big fan. What I thought was going to be the regular BDSM relationship turned out to be so much more. The main character Haley is coming out of a dreadful relationship with her ex-husband and is in need of something different and tantalizing. In walks in Jensen, a Dom with a past of his own and both meet at the BDSM club Luminous.

And that is just the beginning…we watch this couple grow as Dom and sub and into a beautiful relationship.

Stacey Lynn is a new 'to me' author who enticed me with the Dominate Me blurb. The story is steamy especially if you enjoy the BDSM genre.
