I've been fortunate enough to read some really great books lately and the subject of this weeks review is no exception. The book I'll be reviewing this week is a new release, Embracing His Submission by Shaw Montgomery.
Embracing His Submission is a romantic piece of femdom erotica, and it is very well done.
Jonathan is an erotica author whose own desires are to submit to a dominant woman; but not the stereotypical mean and cruel domme, he desires a kind and caring woman. Samantha may be just that type of woman and Jonathan may be just the kind of submissive man she is searching for, a strong man with a kind heart who is not a milquetoast. There is a problem though, Jonathan is painfully shy when it comes to communicating his desires and Samantha must find a way to bring him out of his shell.
Ms Montgomery has done a wonderful job with this piece. Jonathan and Samantha are characters that I, as a reader, was drawn to almost immediately and I greatly enjoyed watching them as the story unfolded. Even the peripheral characters were very well done.
The scenes were very well set, the descriptions made me feel like I was right there watching as the action unfolded.
The erotic scenes are smoking hot. The bdsm is light, as it should be since Jonathan is making his first foray into actually doing this stuff rather than just fantasizing about it; but being bdsm light did not make the scenes any less hot. If you like tease and denial there is a delicious bit of that to be found in this story.
The book is very well edited, the pace and flow of the story were smooth. It was a pleasure to read.
I'm giving Embracing His Submission five out of five paddles. If you enjoy femdom erotica with a bit of romance and characters that are actually likeable I highly recommend this book.
I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
