More than 8 Million Reads Online

The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions…

Synopsis: Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…
Review: I saw the Submissive on NetGalley and was immediately intrigued by the synopsis, so I thought I would take a chance on it. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed Abby's story and the insatiable Mr. West. The way The Submissive was written kind of reminded me of the movie The Secretary, the one with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader.
At first, it was difficult to like Nathaniel because he seemed so apathetic. After a while, I found myself liking his character more and more and Abby was just a fun character to read. I am extremely glad I stuck around for the rest of the novel. I think Nathaniel's stoicism and unemotional self is a bit of a breaking point in the novel and I'm glad that there was some sort of change with him.
Although Abby was planning on giving herself over to Mr. West there's something empowering in that action and I really liked Abby because of it. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and their funny quirks.
Overall, I liked this story and I look forward to reading the next book in Mr. West's point-of-view.
Rating: 4/5 DIAMONDS
