The Exhibitionist

The Submissive Series, #7

The Exhibitionist is the seventh book in the Submissive series by Tara Sue Me. This book is best read as part of the series and not as a standalone for the full understanding of the setting, storyline, and characters.

Things between Abby and Nathaniel in the bedroom are not as interesting as they once were. It seems life and children have gotten into the way of their relationship and they are losing sight of each other’s needs. Abby needs her husband to be more demanding and push her boundaries. Nathaniel seeing Abby’s response to a new BDSM group pushes him to reevaluate his life and relationship.

The beginning of the story leaves you wondering how everything will turn out for Abby and Nathaniel. By the end of the first chapter, I could not wait to finish the book. The world the author created in the past books and continued in this book is well fleshed out and fully formed. The author gives the reader a sense of the location and the story set as well as a sense of the time frame so the reader can picture the story. The pace of the story was a bit slow at some points and fast is others. The main characters and the secondary characters were stimulating and authentic. I enjoyed the fact that neither Abby nor Nathaniel are perfect and each is learning and growing from each other and their relationship.

The point of view alternated between Abby and Nathaniel gives the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost and the sections didn’t repeat story lines. The main conflict of the story is the relationship between Abby and Nathaniel. I really expected more conflict and drama between them, but it comes across as very anticlimactic. There was a lot of build up between the past book hinting at issues and the beginning of the book. The dialogue between the characters was genuine and distinctive. The characters voices matched not only the setting but fit their overall personalities. The ending was a bit predictable but the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.
