The Submission Series Book One

Sometimes submission can be hot…

Vicki’s never had a problem standing up for herself. So when a meathead at the gym grabs her butt, she has no problem punching him in the face. Gavin, the gorgeous gym owner, throws the guy out, and his tender, but insistent demand to tend to her injured hand makes Vicki hot. The buff, sex-god-come-to-life is everything she’s ever wanted, and he’s only too happy to show her how good sex can be.

Gavin is entranced by the feisty woman, even though he already has more than enough on his hands with the gym and his work as a volunteer fire fighter. The last thing he needs is this bundle of contained fury tossed in his lap, but something about her calls to his inner Dominant. Not only that, her body responds to him like no other. But when he discovers someone is stalking her, it’s no longer all fun and games. Submission is all about trust…and after a brutal attack, trust is the last thing Vicki is willing to give…to anyone.

Reader note: contains light BDSM, spanking, and submission elements

***Kristin – NerdGirlKristin’s  Review***
: I’m not sure where to start with this review. The description of the book interested me so I picked it up to review. For the most part, I did enjoy it but overall it left me feeling unsatisfied. I liked the characters and felt they were well developed. Vicki is a strong woman but at the same time I could tell she needed someone to take care of her. Gavin fits that description and it helps that he is a Dom because it makes eventually makes Vicki open up to him. I was glad that Vicki was open about a Dom/sub relationship, but I felt that the relationship was rushed. For me, it would have helped if the book were longer because the author could have allowed that relationship to blossom slowly and help those who may not understand BDSM by giving more details about the kind of relationship it is.

The stalker element was a nice twist, but I didn’t understand why the stalker was stalking Vicki. There was really no explanation and it felt off in places. Perhaps for me it would have worked better again if the book were longer and more details about this person were given.
