Review: THE SUBMISSIVE by Tara Sue Me

Book One of the Submissive Trilogy
More than 8 Million Reads Online

The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions…

Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…

I am in love with this series! It's got that 50 Shades feel in that, well, it's about BDSM; however, I feel like Abby is a much stronger character and there is a more reasonable story here. (Don't hate, I love 50, I just love Nathaniel & Abby more now.) 

First off, Abby. She's actively looking to become a submissive for Nathaniel. So for the most part, she knows what she's getting herself into and Nathaniel is not sucking her into the lifestyle. She's not a naive, impressionable young woman, although she is naive when it comes to her new lifestyle choice. But the journey along with her is what is so fascinating about this book. 

She is entranced by Nathaniel West, and I have to say, who the hell wouldn't be! He's got this mysterious quality, and Abby never really knows what he's thinking. Well, except when he lets his guard down. But reading from Abby's POV really adds to Nathaniel's character. He's guarded, domineering, but there's something else about him that Abby, and the reader in turn, can't quite figure out. His attitude, reactions, and demeanor conflict with the man that Abby gets mere glimpses of; the man that is caring, sincere and loving.

You will fall in love with this couple and feel every ounce of emotion from Abby. I wanted to laugh, cry and rejoice with her. If you're looking for a 50 Shades or Crossfire esque series, with a captivating couple and strong female who isn't a pushover, I definitely recommend The Submissive.
