Angie's journey to self-rediscovery is incredible. Feeling forced to choose between 2 men, safe and sane or risky and scary, she makes a choice for the way she wants to continue. I would love to read the story of her second chance, as she mentions at the books end.

Down the Rabbit Hole….

“I was a used-up nobody; traded in for a younger model. He took more from me than just my marriage; he took my faith, my belief in love.”

Angie had it all; a 25-year marriage, four grown children, and a husband that was devoted to her; until he wasn’t. Instead of wine and roses for her anniversary, Cam served Angie with divorce papers. Her world in pieces and her self-confidence shattered, Angie sells everything she owns and takes to the road. Wandering from place to place,

There are very few books that I find impossible to put down once I've started them, but this is one of those. This is an exploration as much as it is a story; a musing on finding oneself and having the courage to be the person one finds. Angie does this after a divorce, at 45. Her exploration leads her to the world of BDSM and, specifically, a master/slave dynamic. The reader follows her questions, uncertainty, hopes, terror (yes, more than fear!), and there's an edge of mystery about Nic, Domin ...more

There are some things in this world we are just not suppose to fully understand as an outsider looking in, and that is completely ok. The word magic of this writer is she can take you places that you would never want to be in reality. It’s like forbidden fruit to me. I get to be a voyeur into the world of BDSM. I am allowed to get all giddy with excitement and wonder, yet I am safe in the coziness of the world I have chosen. Isn’t that spectacular?

Choice was the greatest word in this book. This

Ellie has done a wonderful job on Angie's story. She is leading us down Angie's path of rediscovering herself after 25 years of marriage and a sudden divorce. She begins to dabble in the world of sexual fantasy and darker desires . A chance encounter, a spark of desire and interest and she is on her journey of self discovery. She faced her fears, delved into her realm of unknow and took a chance making decisions on her own, which is something that she hasn't done inyears!
Great Read !!

This book made me feel like I took more than a trip down the rabbit hole. Kink is not my thing but reading this book make want to give it a try. The best thing about this book was how informative it was about BDSM, the safe ways you can explore it and the connections you can build with like minded people. I stayed up all night reading this because it was enthralling.

Angie, a 45 year old mother lives an average life with her husband until everything changes when he leaves her for another woman.
Understandably she feels vulnerable and emotionally ruined.

This story sees Angie embark on a journey of self discovery to start living her life for her.
A one night stand helps her shed her inhibitions and opens up a whole new world she'd never dreamt of being part of. Where she's free to explore her darkest desires without judgement.

Cast aside like yesterday's trash after 25 years of marriage, Angie is emotionally drained and raw. All she knows is what she doesn't want. A one night sexual encounter gives her a taste of what was missing in her marriage and now she wants more. She hooks up online with the charasmatic Dominus, the Master's Master. He both terrifies and enthralls her as he initiates her in the BDSM Master/slave lifestyle. Can she bend to his will and become what she both wants and needs?

Wow this book opened my eyes up to a whole new world. Loved it from the very second I started until I finished it, putting it down very reluctantly. The storyline had me enthralled from the onset, how a quiet and unassuming lady saw a whole new world open up before her, and what she went through both mentally and physically to find herself again. This book certainly was very hard to put down. Another awesome write by Ellie Masters. Read it for yourself !!

This is not what I expected and I was pleasantly surprised. We start with Angie being any woman in similar circumstances. Then she becomes a true heroine as she makes choices that stretch or even cross her boundaries, ones not many of us would cross. I often wonder who I am now. How far would you go to find out?

love Ellie.
Her books are thought provoking, emotionally charged roller coaster rides and this is no different.
Can you explore and find yourself after a certain age ? Can you find love again ? Can you find what you didnt find in your earlier life ?
5 plus stars !

This was a great read about a woman who thought she knew who she was and then life pulled the carpet out. This is her story about her journey of self discovery and learning about things she knew nothing of and learning about her new cravings. The characters were easy to relate to in the sense her questioning felt to me to be a normal questioning process. And how can you go wrong with Dominus....

I loved reading the growth that she went through and her own personal journey

All the feels and then some....

A truly inspiring story of one trying to find themselves again.

Ellie Masters, once again the words that you have written have left me speechless. I am again wanting to be a part of the world you created and felt like I was right there with Angie and her journey to finding herself through BDMS. The emotions that I felt from the very beginning are just indescribable and you seriously had me wanting no yearning to be apart of the story.

I used to eat D/s books for dinner, or at least it seemed that way with how I devoured them. Several years have passed since I've read a book like this and Ellie Masters did a phenomenal job reintroducing me to this genre. I was addicted to her words, from start to finish, reading a chapter here and there every chance I got. My mind just wouldn't stop thinking about the characters and what came next.

Wow!! Just Wow!! First off, let me just congratulate Ellie Masters on her remarkable insight and for acknowledging that love, passion, and one's sexuality does not end in the thirties! Of course, deep down in each of us, no one wants to imagine their mother still having a sex drive or needs, but when you think of her as an individual, it becomes something so natural and expected without the age restraints. And as an older woman, I thank you!!!

What a book! A fantastic different take on the BDSM world.

This was not your typical BDSM novel. Instead of being a book full of scenes this was a book of self discovery.

At age 45 Angie found herself divorced. After being married for 25 years and a mom for almost as much time she had no idea who she was. She sold everything and packed up to go on a journey of self discovery.

She spent a year hiding in campgrounds. One night of passion with Florida guy and she saw that there was something other t

Oh...and how “nuclear explosive hot” and erotic it was!!!
Angie is the main character in this smart, thought provoking and insightful story of a 45 year old, mother of 4 divorcée.
Flawlessly written, Angie’s character was fantastically relatable and likable. The author makes no apology in stating she took some liberties about the content of the story and I personally applaud it.

Sounds deep, doesn't it? In this case, that is actually appropriate. This is not just a BDSM story, or an erotic story, although both are definitely present. This is a story of a mature woman trying to rediscover life after her 25 year marriage comes to an end.

The story is incredibly well written. I was impressed from the first page with the author's ability to tell a story, to express emotions and setting and to transport the reader into the setting. Fair warning. Because it is so well crafted,

This author never disappoints, when I first started reading her I didn't know what to expect, I was open minded to whatever it was I was about to adventure myself into. I have not regretted it ever since. Ellie Masters puts her heart and soul into each story she brings to her readers, she's magic with her words. This story was incredible, of course the title made me think of Alice in Wonderland, but it was far from it, outside of the hole that both Alice and Angie went down. Sometimes, we have t ...more
