Initiation (Master Class Book 1)
by Sierra Cartwright
When wannabe sub Jennifer Berklee calls him Master and begs him to flog her, PI Logan Powell knows all his military training won’t be enough to keep his jaded heart safe.
Private investigator Logan Powell does the women of the world a favor by avoiding emotional entanglements. They deserve to be loved and cherished. And he’s not capable of it.
That belief is challenged when he sees Jennifer Berklee at a BDSM play party. The innocent wannabe sub is everything he wants to avoid. He fears all his previous military training won’t be enough to keep his jaded heart safe.
Anything She Wants…
Jennifer has been interested in BDSM since she first heard about it. And after her engagement ends in an embarrassing disaster, she’s determined never to settle again.
But when the stunningly sexy Dom Logan Powell offers to scene with her, she is overwhelmed and flees.
One evening, Logan and Jennifer are set up by well-meaning friends. This time, Logan is determined not to let her go. Jennifer will submit to him, no matter the cost to either of them.
I must admit, I’m really not into books with BDSM as I find this too hot to handle. I can take erotic romance stories, but those with floggers and submission topics, I kind of felt weird. The first and last book I read of this kind was the Fifty Shades series. But there’s always a second time, right?
I got Initiation by Sierra Cartwright because I liked the premise. It was interesting to read about a woman who had been so curious about BDSM that she decided to join a “scene” in a play party. Sadly, she was disappointed with the outcome because her Dom wasn’t really “game” about it. If only she’d chosen the stunningly sexy man who offered to scene with her next time…
The one that got me interested really was Logan Powell. A private investigator who got his heart burned, he brought pleasures and seduction to opposite sex, but was determined not to fall for their crazy-in-love antics. But this guy surprised me with his guts. He deserved to be called Master for some reasons.
Sierra Cartwright’s writing is great, easy to grasp and very engaging. She’s definitely the author that E.L. James should watch out for. Because this one’s really racier than 50 Shades, indeed!
