Sasha Easton's mother died and her father was nowhere to be found. Luckily for her she had a half-brother Rowan who took care of her - and had never-ending troubles for this as no good deed ever goes unpunished. The problem was, Rowan was working in a BDSM club and trying to save money on a babysitter he took Sasha with him. She spent her time in the office, but does anybody think that a normal twelve-year-old girl with healthy curiosity would not figure out what exactly that place was?

In a word: Damn

As in HOT DAMN. This book was.... let's just say that I am not a smoker, but I totally felt like I needed a cigarette after some of those steamy encounters.

Quick overview --- when Sasha was 12, her mother passed away suddenly leaving her older half-brother (Rowan) to raise her from then on. He was 22 at the time and struggling to make ends meet, so he got involved in the BDSM club scene where he worked as a Dom at a Miami hotspot called Zodiac to supplement his income.

The men are all idiots.

Sasha is a brat.

But the sex scenes were pretty hot.

I really liked this book. I had a few problems with some of the issues and how they were handled, but overall, it was a good story. Lincoln buys a BDSM club and finds Sasha there who is only turning 17. She was there because when she was younger, her parents died and her brother needed to work to support them. She did stay in the office and didn't go into the "club". Lincoln basically kicks her out. Fast forward five years later and Sasha wants to see if the club life is for her. The rest of the ...more

One of the HOTTEST books I’ve ever read.

*ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*


This has been a very educating book for me, even though I haven’t fully understood the BDSM lifestyle after reading this book I have been given great insight. I now understood why many people with this lifestyle got mad with Fifty Shades of Grey. I read an article where the people said it’s nothing like the actual lifestyle and now I agree with them. I never knew there were lo

I cannot get enough of Becca Jamesons stories. She is amazing in her writing style and use of words. This one captivated me from start to finish. The BDSM and the chemistry between the characters are so well described. The characters are likeable and develops well through the story.
A story about romance, love, lust and the need for the person who makes you feel hole again.
Absolutely a story that I only can recommend if you like your romances with a bit more.

Oh my, where to start on this. If you're looking for a horrible book that wont suck you in, has one dimensional characters, and so-so sex scenes, then let me tell you that this is not the book for you! This has lush scenes and lots of steam before there is even any sex between Sasha and Lincoln. I liked the storyline and the side characters and this is definitely on my list of books to read again. Well worth the time, though let me tell you I devoured it in one sitting and was more than happy wi ...more

This was a good easy read, I just found it hard to get along with the idea that the MC Dom, kept thinking of himself as a sadist and with that in mind that he couldn’t form a relationship with a woman. I do believe this was the main theme of the book, but that aspect did annoy me.

Lincoln (Dom), meets Sasha when she’s 17yes, when she celebrates her birthday at his club. She is the sister of his business partner and so a no go area. But she decides to try the lifestyle, and Lincoln and her brothe

Had I read this book perhaps in the early 2000s, before I have read that many kinky BDSM books, I may have rated this book better. As it is, it is just "okay". I struggle with the writing style of this book. There is a bit too much inner dialog bouncing back and forth between Lincoln and Sasha's point of view. Whilst I like the training concept of this story, the execution of it leaves me with a slight distaste in my mouth.

Not As Innocent As He Thinks!

Lincoln cannot stop his attraction for Sasha, his partner's little sister in the Zodiak Club by Becca Jameson.  he doesn't want Sasha anywhere near him as he is a sadistic Dom and she is way too innocent. At least that is what he thinks. But Sasha has secrets - especially one about what happened to her when she was 17.  Years later she is now a school teacher but she has a yearning to be a Sub.  She is very attracted to Lincoln but he won't give her the time of day a

Received an ARC for review.

Holy heck! This book gave me ALL the feels. I was so pleased reading this from start to finish. Sasha and Lincoln are two amazing d/s characters for me. I loved seeing the difference between them in the BDSM world and how they made it work for themselves. The romance was perfection, the drama was interesting and that ending made me excited for the companion sequel.

Sasha seems to be this innocent woman, but she is far from it. I loved how determined she was in getting n

Good erotic book to read in between, even though it's a bit repetitive concerning some of the phrases being used. Also there is not much character development or even depth to begin with.

!BUT! My main problem with this book was that I expected Lincoln (a master sadist!!!!) and Sasha to not only have a D/s relationship, but also for some S/m play to take part (as he is a MASTER SADIST). Sorry, to disappoint you, but the kink level of this bdsm book equals a

Nice intro to BDSM story with 'my brother's best friend' twist. I had trouble with the dishonesty between Sasha and Lincoln when they entered into a BDSM relationship with hidden motives. Sasha less so, because 22. Lincoln is 30 and acts like an ass. He behaves so badly, I felt Sasha deserved more groveling before she finally forgave him. ...more

What do you do if your in love with your brothers friend and are also intrigued by BDS and see it as a way to get closer to the one you want. Sasha's brother has looked after her since she was young after their Mother died and this meant she would hang out after school in an office at the BDSM club Zodiac where he works, but after meeting the new owner Lincoln who humiliates her in front of the staff the first time she meets him her fire burns not just with anger at him but also attraction.

When Becca Jameson takes you on a journey to submission, she does it with detail. Stunning detail.

Sasha has known about the BDSM lifestyle for a very long time. When her parents died, her brother Rowen had her spending time in the offices above the club while he worked. She's also known she is a submissive for a very long time. The problem, her submission is reserved for only one man.

A young woman who kinda grew up in an S&M club still has the hots for the new owner after five years, even though he treats her horribly. But then she’s a submissive, so that seems to work for her. Unfortunately he’s a dom into pain rather than sex, so he doesn’t want to have anything to do with such an innocent, even if she is curious about the lifestyle. It doesn’t help that her brother works at the club.
Like some of the most annoying of this genre, it does the “I can’t!” mental speech over an

From the first time Lincoln Walsh entered the story I liked him. Confident, virile, sexy and Dominant to his core. It was delightful to watch his confusion over his feelings and possessiveness of Sasha while she was so confident in how she felt about him. Lincoln's constant inner turmoil between what "should be" and what he wanted was, at times: sad; funny; or poignant. Seemingly innocent, Sasha has an inner strength and sensual nature that brings Lincoln to his knees. Realizing he's made a huge ...more

Oh holy cow! I loved this book. It is a great beginning to the series and I can't wait to see where Ms. Jameson takes us next. Not only did I fall in love with Lincoln and Sasha, but Lincoln's partners (one of which is Sasha's brother). I loved how messed up Lincoln was and how these two come together. Take a sadist and a stubborn subbie, mix together and you have an explosive relationship and a roller coaster of a story. Lincoln throws Sasha all kinds of mixed signals and just really confuses t ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Training Sasha by Becca Jameson is the first book in the series called "Club Zodiac" This is the story of Sasha and Lincoln. This was a pretty hot read and somewhat different take on the little sister in love with her brother's friend.
Sasha was taken in by her brother when their parents died. Which sometimes meant going to the 'Club' where he worked...of course she was not in the part of the club where the subs/doms would be. Even though Sasha was kept out of the main activates of the club she

I really enjoyed this book! 💜

Sasha is only seventeen when she meets the man she's meant for but it doesn't go well, right from the start. Her older brother, Rowan, has been raising her since their parents died in an accident. Maybe bringing her to his workplace, Club Zodiac, which is a BSDM club, wasn't the smartest idea but it was the only way he felt she would be safe while he was working nights. Lincoln, the new

I'm so glad that the author had the main characters have a connection before this story took off. Had it been one of those stories where two strangers meet and then went through everything in this book I definitely wouldn't have given it 4 stars. It's a fast paced book; I think in total two weeks pass by from the start of things until the end of the book. But because of their past, you don't feel like things were rushed between the characters.

Once upon a time there was a little girl who lost her mom and dad but her older brother took her in and raised her. He worked part time in a BDSM club and rather than leave her home alone he brought his sister to the club where she stayed upstairs away from the action. When she was 14 she took a peek and was intrigued. When she was 17 the club changed ownership and she was banned. Now she is 22 and wants back in.
I loved the fact that Sasha knew what she wanted and went for it. I absolutely adore
