Review: Master of Submission

Title:  Master of Submission

Author: Jan Bowles

Genre: Erotic contemporary romance

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand

Length: 159 pages


Reviewer: Jen

Thirty-year-old English lawyer Emma Parkes believes Club Submission holds the key to her best friend's disappearance. Well out of her comfort zone, Emma's eyes are opened wide when she observes the Masters of Submission at work. They're so confident and sexually arousing—especially beautiful blue-eyed Master Zane. Submission member and Dom Zane Anders frequently enjoys all the club has to offer. The wealthy, forty-year-old diamond importer has everything he could possibly need—everything except for love. A natural dominant, he's not looking for a permanent submissive in his life. But perhaps he'll make an exception for the stunning lawyer from London. When Club Submission is plunged into a high-profile murder investigation, its very existence is put in jeopardy. Can Emma unlock the truth, or will the devastatingly handsome Zane Anders, a Master of Submission, unlock her deepest sexual desires, instead?

This book was an awesome read. The story begins with Jessie coming to Boston from England to be with her friend Chloe. They are planning to open up a law firm together, so Jessie was going to get settled in and start on their future. Soon Jessie finds out that Chloe is missing and this begins her search to find out what happened to her friend.
A week later, a clue brings Jessie to Club Submission in search of her friend. This is where she meets "Master Zane" who is a successful business man that likes to dominate at night.. Attraction sparks between the two and soon they join forces to look for Jessie's friend as well as start up a dom/sub exchange between each other.
This story takes you into the BDSM world through both the “Master’s” point of  view, as well as the submissives’. I found that I thoroughly enjoyed getting the feel of Master Zane and what feelings he went through as he dominated Jessie. This is the first book that I have found a Master’s p.o.v. included in the story. The author also takes you through Jessie’s journey as she fights to stay an independent woman even though her heart tells her she needs to submit to a Master. The story flows at a good pace and includes hot, steamy, sex as well as a little mystery thrown in to keep you on the edge of your seat.
This is the first book in the series and I look forward to the next one. Jan Bowles includes a glimpse of some of the other Masters, which is a tease for future stories to come. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a steamy and exciting read. Master of Submission is a quick read; but make sure you have enough time because you won’t want to put it down!
