A Nix BDSM review – Valentine’s Submission by Sue Lyndon (3.5 Stars)

Posted in Uncategorized / 1 Comment

After coping with months of speculation after her husband’s affair, Ann decides to take some time for herself at the holiday home she goes to every year.  The owner is a long time friend of her ex-husbands, a widower for whom she has much respect. When she arrives, the chemistry between the two of them starts to flow.  Ann knows that Jack is a Dom in the bedroom; can she handle what he wants from her?
Jack has always admired Ann, always been attracted to her. Feeling terrible about how her ex has treated her, Jack sets out to make sure that the holiday is one that will both relax and pamper her. When the fireworks start to fly, he can’t help but test the waters to see what could be between them. He has grieved for his wife for years, but it’s time to move on. When Ann responds to his Dominant side, seems willing to submit to him and learn what he likes, he realises that they could have something special.
With ghosts and baggage littering the path to love, can the two of them ever accept the others past in order to work towards a future together?
OK, first of all the blurb for this one goes way too far for me. That being said, my recap probably contains les spoilers (I know, shocking :D) This was a rather sweet story about a couple of people who needed a second chance at love.  Ann was completely humiliated by the actions of her ass of an ex-husband. She needed someone as attentive and loving as Jack to prove to her that she was worth something.  I enjoyed that she was willing to embrace new things and that she was happy to recognise her own sexuality. She never shied away from his Domination, never felt ashamed that she liked to submit and feel the bite of pain that he liked to dish out. I never questioned that she was anywhere other than where she wanted to be.
Jack was a believable Dom. He liked pleasing Ann, liked protecting her and just liked being around her. He was a bit of a kinky bugger too; he liked spanking a whole lot and seemed to have quite a sex toy fetish.  He didn’t compare Ann to his late wife as he recognised that they were different people and that their life together would be different. There was no angst, no drama, because he was ready to start again. It was refreshing and I loved it. There is something that Jack does at the end of the tale which made me swoon because he made sure that she knew he was starting a new chapter with her.
This was an erotica short, with the main themes being sex. The problem was that some of the sex didn’t quite work for me. It was well described and kinky enough; there just weren’t enough thoughts and feelings running through a couple of the scenes to keep me believing. It felt a little rushed, like there should have been a few more chapters. There were a couple of non-sex scenes that felt the same.  I loved the themes of this story, loved the characters but I need more emotion in my sex scenes to get me hot.  This isn’t to say every sex scene was the same; this story suffered only because of its length.
Overall, a sweet story about people getting a second chance at love. The Domination and submission themes were well set-up and I enjoyed the heroine’s lack of sexual inhibitions . The characters were well developed and the book overall was a nice easy read.

  1. There are as many reasons as there are people. The most obvious reason why people engaged into BDSM is good old fun. Some people do it to fulfill their fantasies. For others it is the role-playing. For some it is simply the feeling of dominance or submission. The list is endless. domina profesional marbella
