Cumulative review of all four books 3.5 out of 5 Licks
I rather enjoyed the Dominating series by Malia Mallory and read all four of them in one weekend. I gave the overall series a 3.5 instead of the 4 I was leaning towards on the kitty licking scale because the transitions between books and scenes were a bit clunky. Not enough to prevent me from reading because the story line was intriguing and the characters interesting and well thought out. The first book takes you on a journey in the tropics on the island of Oahu. I’ve been there twice so I felt the vibe that the author presented rather easily. Tabitha was an easy character to love. She was quirky, knew what she wanted in life but lacked a back story. I don’t think we learned anything about her life outside of her desire to find the right man for her and a couple office friends. Marcus the beautiful man she meets in Hawaii has a much richer tale aside from the fact that he’s stinking rich. He has a domineering nature that I found likeable and not overbearing. The romance is pretty hot and you find out about Marcus’s predilection towards dominance but not the full detail behind it until book 2.
Ah, book 2 I liked very much. Probably my favorite of the four. The author delved deeper into the art of dominating a submissive and “collaring” ones mate in a BDSM lifestyle. There’s a part in the book where the author goes through a collaring ceremony and I thought it was really intriguing and found myself getting a little emotional. You could feel the characters intensity and pure love during the ceremony. The plot thickened in this book but did leave you hanging a bit needing to read book 3 to get further knowledge about the Granger Pharma company takeover and some suspicious dangerous events that occur in this portion.
In book 3 we’re introduced to Jonah the brother of Marcus. He’s a wildly attractive, womanizing, work-a-holic research scientist. In this book he falls for a fellow colleague Anna who has been pining for him for years. They fall hard and fast and have some sexy times that definitely make the tale erotic. Break-in’s occur at their lab where company secrets are being stolen and sold to the highest bidder.
Book 4 brings the entire ball of wax together by starting from start to finish with the budding relationship of Monica Granger and her love interest Ben Coron a member of the Coron family a sworn enemy to the Granger clan. The two can’t help but fall for one another because the heart wants what the heart wants.
Overall, there was a lot going that I thought was intriguing, interesting to read and had me captivated. However, with that said, I would have given it a 4 closing in on a 4.5 if the plot had been fleshed out a bit more and more dominance as the title suggested. Although most of the characters are rich, they don’t act like they’re crazy rich or blatant with their money in any of the books. If you’re looking for a good series with a little dominance, some spanking, a little suspense this is the tale for you.

Sweet and very mild BDSM! I was given a copy of this book in ex
Sweet and very mild BDSM! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion. So that's what I will give it. This book is a very different view on the dominant/submissive relationship. It was nice to see that the man was not a dominant but was willing to become one for his woman. Anna liked to be dominated and Jonah wanted to make her happy. Was Jonah happy about it? Well you'll have to read it to find out. I had not read the first two books before reading this one, but I find that I want to. I also will be reading the fourth book in this series because I am curious to see if I have solved the mystery. It's worth the read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
