With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright
Series: Mastered, book #1
Genre: BDSM, Erotic Romance
Length: 179 pages
Julia Lyle will have nothing to do with domineering men, no matter how tall, dark, and sexy. But Dom Marcus Cavendish will be satisfied with nothing less than collaring the fiercely independent Julia.
Nothing could have shocked her more…
Julia Lyle is invited to her best friend’s wedding and is stunned when Lana kneels to accept her husband’s collar. When Julia starts to object, firm, relentless hands land on her shoulders. The man behind her threatens to turn her over his knee if she interrupts. She’s outraged, but there’s no doubt he’s serious.
After the ceremony, he offers her a glimpse into her friend’s lifestyle, if she’s brave enough to accept.
Master Marcus Cavendish is everything she doesn’t want in a man—dominant, self-assured and arrogant. So why can’t she resist him?
Telling herself that learning about the lifestyle will make her a better friend, Julia agrees to submit to Master Marcus, but only for the evening. Firm and unrelenting in his handling of her, he introduces her to his tawse and the pleasure/pain of a spanking delivered by a competent Dom. The experience unnerves her, making her question everything she thought she knew about relationships, and his forced orgasms leave her shattered.
No doubt the scene seduced her, and that makes her doubly determined to avoid him. She has fought hard for her freedom and vowed only to date nice men, and Master Marcus is anything but safe.
Marcus is undeterred. Julia is a natural sub. The way she responded to his touch, his voice, his punishment proved it. Now he has to convince her to yield to him, submitting to his tawse as she kneels to accept his collar.
With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright is a beautifully written BDSM story that contains the heart and soul of the BDSM world. Ms. Cartwright did not miss a beat in creating Master Marcus and Julia.
Master Marcus is tough and sexy as hell. He demands attention and boy did he have mine. Master Marcus’ character is one I truly could not get enough of. He is as hard as he is soft.
Julia was a true joy to watch blossom, as she uncovered what was hidden inside of her desires, as well as herself. She has a spine and is no push over by any means. In addition, she is well aware of what happens when you misbehave. *grins*
The secondary characters were an added bonus to the hero and heroine, as well as a plus to making this a wonderful read. Ms. Cartwright I have to ask, “Where can I find Master Ben and Lana’s story?” These two where a huge help and source of support I think in helping Master Marcus and Julia find what works for them. Is there any more books related to these characters?
As far as the plot goes, this is a rock solid read that will heat you up in a Nano second! The characters demand your attention as the story unfolds. I enjoyed the fact that Julia fights back. What can I say…I like a woman with gumption. *LOL!*
Ms. Cartwright is a master in her own right when it comes to writing the BDSM genre. She gets an A++ from me. With This Collar is a must have for anyone’s BDSM collection. Bring on the next book in the series! 🙂
