The Dom


I’m not broken, tortured, or scarred, some cliched, overdone and sensationalized misconception about this lifestyle… and the men in it who control their submissives with a strong hand.
I’m just a Dom. Just a man who gets off on a woman who entrusts me with her submission. Just a man who loves to be able to show them all the ways the gift of their trust can bring

4.5 stars

A beautifully written book about a budding D/s relationship. If you have a craving for a Dominant Alpha book and you're sick of all the OTT, overbearing, insensitive, asshole, borderline abusive Dominants that are way too frequent nowadays, please do read this book. Everything about it was near perfect. This is the journey of a beginner, Adley, discovering the BDSM world for the first time. And DOM who is guiding her through it. To my safety gang, no other woman/man issues, no cheating,

***FIVE STARS***
I enjoyed the heck out of this sweet Dom/sub story. It wasn't one of those OTT whipping the shit out of, and torturing the sub type of story. It was a story of woman getting her first experiences of the BDSM lifestyle, as well as pushing through her fears. It was fun experiencing everything vicariously through Adley's eyes.

Adley's character was so believable and realistic. She had always been curious about the lifestyle, but still had a fair amount of fear of the unknown to keep

She just needed an area in her life that she did not NEED to be in full control of. Adley was curious, drawn to the idea of sexual pleasure through submission, which led her to an online dating service and the man she knew as DOM.

Yes, Jessica Gadziala, queen of passionate, romantic tales that do not shy away from freely expressing pleasure, has created a tale of a woman looking for something more in her sex life, a relationship that eschews emotional attachments while allowing her to explore

At first I was distrustful that I would enjoy a bdsm book, and felt begrudgingly like I was going to read it simply because it was written by one of my fave Romance authors.

But holy Hell.

Instead of the seedy, scary, bondage wrapped, anything-pierced un-relatable characters I was expecting to meet, I was over-the-moon happy to find DOM and Adley to be the sweetest, hottest, loveable multi-dimensional characters I have ever read since The Sex Surrogate/Dr. Chase Hudson.

There is no scary BDSM in

Blooooody hell!!!
...Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Navesink anymore!

I didn't know what to expect from JG in this new series (well, I hope series?!!) but I'm always so impressed with this author's clean, simple, beautifully written style, that I'm convinced she could write erotica about cowboys falling for green aliens and I'd love it!

Terrific story, passionate, hot and dirty - can't wait to see what's next from this writer!

Sooooo Hot!!

The unicorn of BDSM books! I read this book in two and a half hours, I couldn't put it down. Not once did I throw up in my mouth a little and force myself to keep reading because I'm not a quitter. No skimming. No seedy, tacky scenes of bloodshed in which you are supposed to believe that strengthens the characters "bond". Just a lot of HOT and a little dirty! Definitely has me counting down the time until the Hubs comes home... pink blanket ready!! Loved it!!!

Do come and read this book if your looking for a sexy BDSM story written in a way that almost anyone could relate to.

In today's world most women have had to become strong and independent. Financially supporting themselves and enjoying the freedom to make their own choices. Sexually though, some crave to give their desires, and themselves toanother in the bedroom. Most never take that step to make that happen... But our heroine Adley, after a night of to much drinking on her 30th birthday, signs

I don't know what to say about this book. This was everything and more than I imagined it would be. I can't say that I haven't ever been curious about a Dom/sub relationship, much like Adley, but I have never explored it further, like Adley did. Adley meets Dom on a website and their relationship takes off from there. I loved how Jessica explored the relationship, mostly through Adley's eyes. Giving us the reader an inside view to a novice in the BDSM community. I loved the learning aspects as ...more

This book was . Jessica really really really out did her self with this one. Mind blown, panties disintegrated. Adley like most women are always curious about the more in sexual encounters. The hand on your throat the cuff's on your wrist, total submission. Something her drunk subconscious finally submits to. I really enjoyed Adley's self discovery and awareness of what her body enjoys. The scenes between Adley and DOM where so . I have to say that between Jessica's on point writing and Cholé's ...more

One dimensional characters. An overdone theme. She's not allowed to come hence the name of the book but I got sick of reading him saying 'don't come' and telling her to 'breathe'.

Predictable storyline but no connection whatsoever between them. It was very amateurish and the dialogue was stilted.

Amazing book by Jessica like I expected anything else. I can’t wait for your next surprise project. Unlike Dom delaying gratification, Jessica didn’t hold anything back she let us come. A must read. ...more

3.5 RATING - Nothing noteworthy here but the authors writing always seems to work for me. This rated high on the readability scale even if it was predictable. An okay way to pass a couple hours on the weekend. BDSM-lite.
Kimberly / Love Notes Book Blog
3.25 stars. This book was only okay for me. This is Adley and Nathaniel's story. Adley gets drunk on her 30th birthday and ends up making a profile on a D/s encounters website. She is contacted by Nathaniel with the screenname DOM , who won't tell her his real name. They begin messaging, which leads to texting, which leads to talking on the phone, and finally meeting up for BDSM sessions. Somehow this leads to them beginning a relationship.

I was sucked into this book from the beginning, but I

In a departure from Navesink Bank, Jessica Gadziala weaves a new tale of a BDSM novice whose curiosity - plus a LOT of alcohol - sees Adley waking up very hungover after celebrating (mourning?) her 30th birthday. A quick glance at the open laptop still sitting on her bed reveals that late that night, she not only signed up for a Dom/sub site, listed her personal stats, and brazenly checked ALL of the things she'd like to try (but had previously been way too embarrassed/afraid to ask). And paid ...more

Don't Come is the first BDSM book Jessica has written & let me tell you something, you wouldn't know that if I hadn't just told you! The way this book flowed & was the perfect balance of kink & romance was perfect. I think one of my favorite things about this book is that DOM & Adley are just ordinary people, they don't have terrible trauma from the past or someone after them they are just normal.
At one time I loved reading BDSM books but I kinda got away from it but when I

Don't Come is a standalone written by the amazing Jessica Gadziala.

Adley drunkenly signs up for a type of Dom/Sub dating type website on the night of her 30th birthday. The next morning she is somewhat mortified to see what she did, but also very intrigued since she had always been interested in the lifestyle and secretly craved to be dominated. She goes back and fourth between deleting the profile and keeping it when she gets a message that changes her life.

"Dom" isn't looking for anything

Don't Come is SUPER HOT!

This book gives new meaning to 'slow burn.' Ms. Gadziala's debut in bdsm is neat, clean, and on point. I hope to read more of Jessica's bdsm soon, it is super sexy with a nice HEA to wrap up!
Kodie Mackay
Did I enjoy the heck out off this cheeky release from the lovely Jessica Gadziala. This most certainly hit all the right spots.

As goes this is a pretty light bdsm book so if you're new to reading them or in fact don't like them then I'd definitely suggest this one. I personally have a love hate relationship with bdsm stories because I want the women to take charge and push the limits. I HATE submissive/doormat heroines period. That's it.. I just cannot deal with them. subs and bdsm go hand in

I read a lot, and without shame I also read a lot of kink and porn. It's difficult to find a BDSM book that "gets it" and doesn't make me shout rude things at the book or my Kindle. I'm delighted to say that this book gets it!

Kink, and the D/s relationship is explored slowly, carefully. Under the umbrella of a kinkster site, limits are spelled out in advance of the relationship, and honored. When things are too much, safewords are used. There's no mention of subspace, which delights me to no

Have you ever done something when you were drunk that you always wanted to do but didn't have the courage to do it? Well that is exactly what happens to Adley. This drunken choice leads to a fun adventure that changes her life forever. We meet Dom and he is exactly what all women want in a dominate man. He is tall, sexy and knows how to please a woman but also he is a Dom that doesn't keep subs for long.. As usual in most JG books we have great supporting characters, Fagan is amazing!

For those

I had to think hard about the 4 star rating. I have some reservations about this book and the way DOM handled some things which makes me think 3 stars. But, if I judge this book by most BDSM I have read, I might give it 4.5 stars. We'll settle on 4 and blame imy reservations n DOM being a little in over his head in love.

Others have summarized the basics, and because I suck at that part I won't give yet another summation of the plot. What I liked were the characters. The BDSM parts didn't always

I'm going to be up front, this is not my genre. I do read them from time to time when an author I love brings them out but that's it. I'm generally not into as man telling me what to do and reading these type of books just pisses me off. But like I said when its an author I love I always give it a go.

This didn't piss me off, in fact it was very enjoyable. The rawness andemotional journey that Adley takes just sucks you in and you want to know every detail that comes

A Fantastic Take on Kink and Love

I am a huge Jessica Gadziala fan, but after 50 Shades of Grey I have been really wary about BDSM based books. I knew I would buy it because I will always buy her books, but I was nervous I wouldn’t like it or that she wouldn’t handle kink properly. I have been in the lifestyle for almost 2 decades and I worried how we would be portrayed. I should have known better. This is Jessica, after all, and she has been fantastic with everything she does.

Dom and Adley are

This book is so HOT it will steam up your Kindle. I FLOVED this story.

Adley is thirty now. She has friends but lives alone and works alone. She's always had desires that veer towards kink but never the opportunity to explore. After a drunken night, she signs up on a dating website that caters to Dom/sub connections. And she figures...what the hell. She's gonna give it a shot.

DOM is her first contact. Rule of the site dictate your level of contact and increase over time if both party's agree.

5 Orgasmic-Stars!
This was a sweet & sexy story of a girl named Adley, who meets a Dom online on a website that hooks up Doms and Subs. They instantly hit it off and the sexual chemistry is off the charts!

From the confident instruction on how to reach peek orgasm, this Dom deserves an award! I have never heard phone sex this HOT!

I loved it. The climax was very minor in comparison to other BDSM books, but it fit this story.

Tons of toe-curling sex scenes! Highly recommended!
