Dom and Domme

Dom and Domme is an interesting book. I'm ambivalent about reading the book, honestly. Betsy Castle is the one that got away... well, no, she isn't. She's the one who took a lucrative job even though Gray Merritt secretly wished she would stay. When he sees her at Excess, the local BDSM club, he is floored to discover that she is Mistress Elizabeth. Gray, a Dom, is looking for a sub to play with and he thinks that Betsy- Elizabeth- with fill the bill. Elizabeth also has fantasies of tying Gray up- fantasies he has absolutely no intention of fulfilling. When they decide to come together as a vanilla couple, the heat and passion is still there, but they are both fighting their dominant tendencies.

The pros: I liked the fact that Betsy was a strong enough heroine that she was able to move on to a good job, even though it meant leaving Gray behind. I like that Gray was able to set aside his own dominance in order to fulfill her desires.

The cons: I could not stand the fact that Gray interfered with not one but two of Elizabeth's scenes at the club. That is a huge no-no, was completely disrespectful, and he should have been called on his actions. I couldn't understand why their dominant personalities were such a huge issue between the duo.

Overall, I wasn't blown away by Dom and Domme. The book was well written, but I wasn't immersed with their relationship.

Book Blurb for Dom and Domme

Master Gray Merritt is looking for a sub one night at Excess, a BDSM night club, but instead he finds Betsy Castle, the college lover that still haunts his fantasies. Betsy is now Mistress Elizabeth, and she has some fantasies of her own that don't involve Gray being on top. They agree to try to reconnect by having vanilla sex, but neither of them is willing to let it stay vanilla for long, and the struggle to be on top begins.

One night isn't enough for either of them, but how can two people used to being in control manage to make things work? If there's a will, there's a way, but they're both going to have to put love before control.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.
