    This is NOT a sequel to book 1 it is a rewrite of book 1. Last page in book one says "to be continued" so you assume book 2 is the continuation, the author lied it is not. Don't waste your money on the same book. Pathetic the author needs to lie to sell books. I will NOT buy another book from Tara Sue Me. B&N please make readers aware of this

    This was touted as the second book in a trilogy. It's not - it's the same story as the first book just retold from the man's perspective. TOTALLY a rip off at almost $9. I feel completely cheated.

    Nathaniel Weston is looking for a new submissive. He likes to have control in all aspects of his life, both as CEO of West Industries and in his personal relationships. He has four new applicants, the first three are experienced but don't particularly interest him. The fourth name however, is one that shocks him..... Abigail King. He knows who she is and never in his wildest dreams would have thought she would be interested in a BDSM relationship, but she has requested him specifically, even though she has no experience whatsoever. Nathaniel is a dominant with a very strict set of rules and parameters and never takes on inexperienced submissives.....but for Abigail he breaks his own rule, and decides to give her a chance.








    Abigail, a librarian at the New York Public Library, surprises Nathaniel. Smarts, heart, innocence and a natural submissive who instinctually puts her trust in him, was more than he had hoped for and it does not take long for him to put his collar on her. But soon the exclusively weekends arrangement are not sufficient for Nathaniel anymore and as he is allowing himself to feel more, he is loosening the restrictions he has put on the relationship.......and himself. But can he take that final step and trust Abigail with the truth?




    I absolutely love the male perspective!! It really sold this story to me. The inner dialogue, the reasoning, the fears, all the while tightly controlling the exterior is fascinating. 
    I had not read the first book, which is Abigail's perspective and I think I will, simply to get the full three-dimensional experience, but I have a feeling that the viewpoint of the dominant will stay my favourite, because I can finally see how this could really be the less powerful role.




    For me.....An enlightening book!!!!

    If you have read Tara Sue Me's The Submissive, you will want to

    If you have read Tara Sue Me's The Submissive, you will want to continue the series with this cleverly written version of the story thus far, The Dominant . I admit, I do like to read parallel stories, especially when they shift POV to the Hero. 
    To many, CEO Nathaniel West had it all: Looks, success, and control. What he lacked though, was a feeling of peace, a feeling of belonging, acceptance, love. He had strong family relationships, which were perhaps what kept him from being completely alone. Inwardly, he saw himself as a failure, incomplete. What he wanted but felt he didn't deserve, was Abigail King. 
    He was sure he wasn't capable of normal, that being a Dom was the only 'relationship' he was destined to have. He saw hints of Abby's longing. Hints of her love. But his lack of self-love, his fear of loss, his fear that even if Abby did love him, that too would dim, disallowed him true happiness. 
    This is Nathaniel's journey, and I loved it. I loved seeing inside his mind, inside his heart. Into the torture he put himself through, his despairing loneliness. 'My life had been a puzzle with one piece missing and then that piece fell into place.' Such was the writing, that I was teary reading about Nathanial's angst. 
    The Dominant was eloquently written, true to character, and poetically crafted. The banter between Abby and Nathaniel was wonderful. And, of course, it was passionate, sizzling and lascivious. That is, if you enjoy the BDSM genre. To me, it was more than just another book of that genre though. It was a powerfully emotional journey of one man's path to trust, love and completion. I look forward to Part 3 - The Training.
    Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to receive and review this ARC. No compensation was received for this review.

    I like where the story line is going. Steamy scenes and not a "hardcore" dominant. A bit emotional. I like how Book 1 is from Abby's perspective and Book 2, from Nathaniel's. Well done with filling in those missing pieces from Book 1. Can't wait to finish Book 3. Hoping for a happy ending.
