She’ll do whatever it takes to get to the top of the professor’s learning curve.

Katrina Keats has discovered the man she longs for, Professor Derek Jacobson, is a Dom. Though BDSM is something she’s never tried, the idea of submitting to Derek is darkly arousing. All she needs is one chance to slip past the strict student-professor boundary he has been unwilling to breach.

This was not one of those dark or deeply physchological BDSM tales. Nor was it a particularly long story, but it felt like the exact length it should be. Tamed is not likely to win any literary awards, though it was very well written. In the end, this was one of the most satisfying BDSM encounters between a man and a woman that I've read. Somewhat predictable but very creative and erotic at the same time.

This is a story of a young woman who did something desperate to have a single night with a m

A quick hot read. I'll add a better review when I've cooled down a bit.

Katrina Keens has been in love with Professor Derek Jacobson since she first took one of his classes. Years later, she’s now a part of his research team and still head over heals for him. There are moments when she feels Derek might be reciprocating her subtle flirtations, but he always seems to hold himself back. Katrina’s close friend tells her why the elusive Professor might not be swayed by her attentions-he’s a Dom. Not knowing anything about the BDSM world, Katrina decides to do some resea ...more

I like my books long with in-depth character development so I am always a bit frustrated with novellas & short stories. I found this book more frustrating than normal because you had to suspend your incredulity too much. I found it unlikely that someone who couldn't articulate their attraction after years of working together would be able to find the balls necessary to perform sexually in such an unsafe & public venue. I also find it difficult to believe that a mask would make someone an ...more

I was really excited about this read as it incorporates several things I find super sexy (BDSM, teacher-student, male dom, etc). I just finished it and was generally disappointed, and am frustrated as I can't quite put my finger on why.

I think the author could have improved greatly upon this story if she'd taken the time to flesh out the characters of Katrina, Derek, and Trista*. There is such good detail in some areas of the book and I think that if the author had worked with a good editor or g
As far as short stories go, this one has pretty much everything. A great plot, seriously steamy scenes and likeable characters. (Plus it centres on a student/professor relationship, who doesn't love that?). What i will say is that I was hoping for a big emotional explosive scene where Derek finds out that Katrina was Kitty, but nope, it pretty much went "I knew it was you", "Why didn't you say".... yawn... Still, maybe that's just me. Either way it was a great read which I'd definitely recommend ...more

Katrina has been Derek’s Teaching Assistant for the last few years. And madly in love with him since she first took a class with him her sophomore year. But he has never acted on her obvious hints and she can’t understand why.

It turns out that Derek is a Dom and not willing to settle for a Vanilla relationship. The question Katrina asks herself, can she be the submissive he is looking for? And how will she get the chance to prove it. She finds a way - one night that will decide things once and f

Mmm, I was reading this and I suddenly wished that I was Kitty (undercover Kat) who gets her only chance with this Master whereas in real life, she's working and learning under him as her boss/professor. The scene was hot - it almost felt like it was actually here.

So with that said, I think that is obvious that I enjoyed this. I don't usually read short stories and enjoy them but this one I did. I like especially how Kat took a risk in the BDSM world with him as a virgin (not in the literal sen

A nice story, though I felt the language was awkward and too removed at times when, as a reader, I had hoped for something more deep POV drawing me right into their heads. Also, the rush with which a newbie is brought into BDSM without even so much as talk, and the lack of aftercare, threw me off a bit. But this is a short story and fiction, and I realize that especially in shorts, realism has to be sacrified at times. Overall, a nice read.

For a D/s book, this was very well done. The professor/student scenario is not my personal cup of tea, but the author did an excellent job of developing the relationship. Note that the student is a grad student/teaching assistant of the professor's. Well crafted story, well developed characters and character motivations. Nice job!

Loved this quick read. Totally hot, and takes the Professor/Student theme above, beyond, & straight into a bdsm smutfest!! I like my erotica dark & dirty and this delivered... with the added bonus of a sweet end.
This was really good short story. I liked how Katrina didn't give up on Derek and the BDSM party was great. For her first time it was quite intense. I liked the professor/student relationship, even if he was trying to stay away.

I love a good teacher/ student erotic story, but this one was awfully predictable. So-so at best.

Hot, erotic, wet... just a few words that come to mind. This has to be the best short story that I have ever read!
