Separated because of his tight-lipped reserve, English-born John Saxon (Sax) has been hiring women to dominate and spank since he split from Maggie just over a month ago. Convinced that Maggie would be horrified by his sexual fantasies and proclivities, he only wants her, but that isn’t happening.
Deciding to ‘come clean’ in an effort to reignite the flame in their marriage, he convinces Maggie to cancel their therapy appointment and spend time with him: talking. Bringing out a dvd that is submission in action, Maggie is curious and intrigued. The flames between these two are obvious, the attraction and tension is there, it is more a matter of communication. From the first experimental moments with BDSM as a couple, to their decision to ‘date’ again, they are slowly learning about one another.
Until a former for-hire submissive of his approaches them in a fetish club, and Maggie is appropriately and understandably angered and walks out. From there, Sax does all he can to woo her back, including arranging for her to speak with the owner of the BSDM service that he used to hire some submissives to dominate.
Cleverly penned with two characters who have an obvious attraction that is not without issues, Cynthia Rayne has given us two characters to enjoy and appreciate, despite their issues. And Sax’s comeuppance for his withholding information was surprising and humorous, with the sex and the emotions being viscerally present. Steamy is only one word to start to describe this novella, the perfect quick read for those curious about BSDM yet afraid of the more punishing tales.
