“The Real Mason” by Julia Devlin (ebook)
In this erotic story (about 99 pages), Anna is stunned when her boyfriend Mason breaks up with her. When she pushes Mason a for reason, he eventually tells her about the fact that he is a Dom and that he can’t handle their vanilla relationship any longer. Anna is in love with Mason though and is willing to try things his way – even if she really has no understanding of what that means. This is a very hot and steamy read. I loved the dynamics of the relationship between  Anna and Mason, especially as they have to work out the new boundaries of their shifting relationship.

 

“Submission: A Treasury of Women Who Like to Give In” anthology by various authors (ebook)
This anthology was free at Amazon, so I could not pass it up. There are several great erotic stories in this one including Charlotte Stein’s “You Already Know” and Elizabeth Coldwell’s “The Usual Dress Code” which are my favorites. Currently, this one is $0.99 at Amazon. I do have to say that I find the sub-title of the anthology odd. A treasury of women who like to give in? Shouldn’t it be more like “A Treasury of stories about women who like to give in?” I don’t know why the title bothers me, but it does.

 

“The Penthouse: The Tethered Arms” by Sahara Kelly (ebook)
This story is the final one in a series about some sexual shenanigans going on in an apartment complex. I read this one last which was a mistake. Plus, there is a wacky twist when we find out what happens to the love of Jason's life (Jason is the owner of the complex). Their past is detailed in the story. However, I wasn’t keen on how the whole thing ended.

“Undone Dom” by Lila Dubois (ebook)
Alton is a Master who sees and wants the submissive in Lulu. Lulu is intrigued by the idea of submission, but not very keen on the idea of being a slave – or of submitting outside of the bedroom. And Alton is a slave trainer who re-educates wayward or misbehaving slaves for other masters. Lulu is certainly right to be worried. Alton doesn’t often get emotionally involved with subs. However, he cares deeply for Lulu and must reorient his thinking in order to be what Lulu needs. I really enjoyed reading about  Alton’s journey in this book.

 

“Maid for Pleasure” by Lucy Rodgers (ebook, review copy)

“Apartment 4B: The Tethered Arms” by Sahara Kelly (ebook)
This is a cute story about Eve and Simon, and the relationship that develops between them when Simon mistakenly returns a misdelivered package of sex toys to Eve. I enjoyed this story.

 

“Apartment 6C: The Tethered Arms” by Sahara Kelly (ebook)
I bought all of the stories in The Tethered Arms series for this one. In it Adam and Laura are married, and the spark seems to be missing from their relationship. When Adam gets a note that the man with whom he trained to be a Master has died, Laura finds out about his past. Laura is intrigued and asks Adam if she can be his submissive. The two explore a D/s relationship. This is definitely my favorite of the series. It is well done and highly erotic.
