    This book was very disappointing! Only 160 pages long and the characters were insubstantial. Very little 
    time was spent devoloping the relationship between the lovers.

    I was so disappointed.  I really enjoyed the Submissive Trilogy

    I was so disappointed.  I really enjoyed the Submissive Trilogy as much for the great writing, characters and story  line as for the erotica and
    looked forward to the same in  Fire.  It is quite short.
      I enjoyed the characters but would've liked more of them.  I thought the story line was thin, at best, and the erotic scenes
    left much to be desired.  They fall far short of the Submissive books.  I was a TSM true-believer, but am now a sceptic and wary of future books.
    It seems as though this one was hastily written.

    Julie Masterson knows all about the games people play in the bed

    Julie Masterson knows all about the games people play in the bedroom, but has never had the courage to act on it. Until she meets Daniel Covington, the Senior VP of Weston Bank shows her a whole new side of dark and dangerous.

    Daniel is well respected in his community and hasn't had a steady relationship in a while. Until Julie shows up in his life making him rethink everything he thought he knew. He wants to show her what they both could have and enjoy without scaring her off.

    I have loved Tara Sue Me and her Submissive series and this new series it just as good if not better! Tara keeps getting better and better with every story she writes! I will continue to be a fan-girl when it comes to Tara Sue Me's work. The dynamic between Daniel and Julie is hot and erotic. You as the reader can't help but root for these two to work their issues out and get together. I also love how Tara brings real everyday issues concerning the BDSM community into this novel and not making them trivial or making light of them.

    I've hit a bit of a wall when it comes to BDSM-centric novels. I still like them for the most part, but I want a story that is as much about the mental and emotional aspects than the physical. I've recently started seeing the name Tara Sue Me (interesting name, right?) around the blogosphere, along with several positive reviews. When her latest release Seduced by Fire was offered for review, I decided to give her a try.

    I'm glad I did. While I was not blown away by Seduced by Fire, I did like it. Julie and Daniel were the typical BDSM couple, with him being a Dom and her willing to explore her submissive side. (Sidenote: I want to read a book with the gender roles reversed. Bad.) While I did find them typical- which is fine, btw - I did appreciate a couple of things. One, Daniel isn't an alphahole jerk who storms around town clearing Julie's path and making grown men cry. And two, I liked that despite him instinctively *knowing* Julie is a submissive and hoping to help her see that, Daniel wasn't hell bent on forcing the lifestyle on her. He gently pushed Julie towards acceptance, but was willing to step back if she resisted. That was refreshing. Another interesting and surprising turn was the exploration of the dangerous side of BDSM, involving Julie's best friend Sasha. I really liked that this secondary story was included, and that the aftermath wasn't brushed over.

    So. I did truly enjoy the sexual side of the relationship. And let me just add that while those scenes didn't occupy a huge part of the story, they were each very sexy and I believe that intimate scenes are definitely a strong point for the author. Despite my enjoyment of those scenes and the emotional and mental sides to the BDSM, I didn't feel a particularly strong connection between Julie and Daniel in the other areas of their relationship. Maybe I was supposed to feel the implications, but I didn't. I got that they were attracted to one another sexually, and that they liked each other, but I didn't feel the great love.

    I found Seduced by Fire to be a very interesting read. I read it fairly quickly, and never felt disinterest. Though the resolution seemed a bit rushed, I was satisfied with the way the story wrapped up. I will say that I am very interested in a slight secondary story, between Dena and Jack, a submissive and her former Master. There was some serious intensity between these two, and I hope the second Partners in Play novel is about them.


    Favorite Quote:

    He was slow and tender, and shattered any lingering misguided impression she had about domination. Fast or slow. Hard or gentle. He would take what he wanted in any way he wanted. And she would let him, because she knew there was only freedom to be found in placing herself into his keeping.
    His hands slid to her face and the blindfold fell from her eyes. She saw her own desire reflected in his gaze. And as he drove them both toward and encompassing climax, she saw something deeper. It was her strength that made him strong, and his command that made her complete.

    Tara Sue Me brings readers the first book in her new Partners in

    Tara Sue Me brings readers the first book in her new Partners in Play series, Seduced by Fire. Readers will be both captivated and emotionally invested in this story about a young woman who dares to make her hidden desires known. The author does a phenomenal job of bringing the BDSM community to life in a way that educates readers without terrifying them. Tara Sue Me's writing drifts like a stream with ripples and waves, as the reader ebbs and flows along with it. Her prose is elegant and her descriptions are so tempting readers might just give in. A great new book from a well respected voice in the genre.

    What I liked:

    Tara Sue Me has written a book about, what I think is an extremely realistic version of a BDSM relationship. The ups and the downs, the ins and the outs. She doesn't sugar coat, she doesn't glorify, she doesn't even take liberties with the feelings of her characters. She lays it out there and lets the reader decide what to make of it. She isn't trying to convince the reader, or even change their minds, it just is the way it is, the good and the bad. I thought it was compelling. It was expressive, extremely sensual without being smutty. Erotic romance can be rough around the edges, but this author gives it an elegance and sophistication that was wonderful to read. 

    Julie is a businesswoman, and that roll denotes a sense of authority needed to make it in the business world. She had an underlying submissive nature that  was not at all far fetched. I thought Me did a fantastic job of allowing the reader to see what someone who had no BDSM experience might see when they are first exposed to it. Julie shows a curiosity to see if this lifestyle is what she needed to fulfill her longings. I thought she exhibited all of the attributes of a butterfly coming out of it's cocoon as she found what she needed to make her sexual life as well as the rest of her world make sense. She was a wonderful character, who showed all of the good feelings associated with this kind of trust and the fears that can sometimes cloud the experience. 

    Daniel was a Dom with a heart. Sometimes it isn't the power that drives the Dom to do what he does. I think the author was able to convey so many different things with this character. At times he showed deep love and understanding, he showed command and dominance, but in a way that was not overpowering or contemptible. When someone both he and Julie know well is harmed in the BDSM community, he is stricken and shows compassion and heart. I just loved him. He was not only sensitive to Julie's feelings but his own as well. The fact that he was hot certainly didn't hurt either. A great well rounded character.

    What I didn't like:

    I learned a lot about Daniel and his back story throughout this novel. I was introduced to several characters that I think will probably play a part in the series as it continues, but I still felt that Julie was a bit allusive. Her back story didn't quite develop like Daniels did. That may be something that will happen throughout the series, or maybe not. But I wanted to know more about her.

    Bottom Line:

    If you think you want to try something in the erotic genre, this is the kind of book to start with. One that doesn't sugar coat the dark aspects, but also doesn't short change the deep and soul stirring experiences that those who find the right niche can have. It's well written and has a sense of class and elegance about it. Try this one... you won't be disappointed.
