    Nimah Washington is an African American princess, born into an affluent family and Ivy League educated. She’s also ambitious, dictatorial and aggressive. With Nimah Washington’s pedigree and connections she has everything going for her. Birthright and influential friends have positioned Nimah for success and social acclaim. But Nimah has a secret. This secret could have her ostracized by some while others might relish in its allure.

    Nimah is careful to keep her appetites private, nevertheless; the secret is out. Nimah is exhilarated, embarrassed, excited and livid at what she deems an “obnoxious intrusion into her life.” Try as she might, she’s unable to discover the identity of the mystery man or woman who is engaging in a sexy game of cat and mouse. Intrusion or no, Nimah is drawn into the dark suitor’s web. Reason and self-preservation don’t have a chance when Nimah’s libido is in hyper drive.

    Nimah is not a particularly amiable protagonist. She is the definition of narcissism and is overbearing in the work place, but she meets her match in the bedroom. She will learn the true meanings of dominance and submission. In addition to finding Nimah off-putting, I found the dialogue somewhat ineffectual.

    Nonetheless, fans of this type of sexual play will have a spanking good time. Don Abdul’s gifts for description are so spot-on, they will leave the reader contemplating very debauched activities. Be prepared to sweat in a good way as you read, A Reluctant Slave by Don Abdul. You may need to have a fan near by as you read, A Reluctant Slave.
