Review: The Flirtation (Submissive #10) by Tara Sue Me

Lynne has not wanted for anything since she began working as Nathaniel and Abby's nanny--until the night they invite her to a group BDSM meeting. The abrupt breakup she had with her last Dom made her turn her back on the lifestyle, but now she's ready to dive back in. When she starts chatting on online BDSM message boards, she's shocked to discover Simon, her former Dom, is a frequent poster--and even more shocked at herself when she creates a secret identity and strikes up a conversation.

After messaging with a mysterious submissive online, Simon forms an immediate connection. Lynne and Simon's D/s relationship grows in intensity, but can their relationship survive after the truth is exposed, and Lynne's identity is laid bare?

Lynne was on a hiatus from the BDSM world she was briefly in.  She had a Dom, Simon, who ended their relationship.  Not really knowing the full reason for the split, Lynne was hurt.  She stayed away from the lifestyle until she went online to an old message board and finds her former Dom still there. She ends up making herself a separate identity so she can chat with him.  Things progress from there.

Although I like a second chance at love type story, there were way too many unresolved issues between Simon and Lynne, from their past, that were never resolved. I didn’t really get a feel for Simon.  Yes, he still had it bad for Lynne, and was equally taken with Faye, but the connection wasn’t screaming to me. I wanted Simon to go after Lynne more when things went sideways.  She put herself out there and he didn’t really do that for her. The only reason they even got back together was because of her other identity online.

There also was a side storyline that seemed to detract from this story and had no real bearing whatsoever.  It was needless and seemed to just be a story filler to add some drama.

I wanted to like this more than I did. The story just wasn’t convincing me.
