    What does a woman have to do to get the attention of her husband

    What does a woman have to do to get the attention of her husband…and the respect and love she deserves in their relationship? Well, Cissy is a woman on a mission, she browses the web and finds a site with a lot of information about Female-Led-Relationships or FLR. She loves her husband, Len and decides this is her next step in ramping up their love life. She is apprehensive as to how he will take it, will he let her be on top, so to speak. Len also comes to realize how much he was taking his wife for granted, as he starts embracing her dominance.

    It was so encouraging to read about their emotions, they sure spoke from the heart, it really touched me because I could see that happening in real life, how a couple needs to communicate with each other…I so enjoyed their ‘scenes’ and my-oh-my they were hot, very interesting to see it from a female point of view. You will want to find out about their reward system, very entertaining!

    This was a totally different type of story than what Ms. Carr usually writes and she did not disappoint.

    I'll clean the dishes for some whoopee...

    Len works, drinks beer, watches the game, and has sex with his wife. Cissy works, cooks, cleans, and makes sure Len is taken care of both in and out of the bedroom, but she's tired of being ignored, treated like a maid, and getting no pleasure in return. Rather than lose her husband, she decides that giving him positive reinforcement for chores may be the solution. He cleans the kitchen, she cleans the pipes. But will Len accept her new control and the consequences for not following the rules?

    I enjoyed this fast-paced read because I could relate with Cissy, as I am a full-time worker with a husband I've had to mold over the years into the wonderful helper he NOW is. Cissy was strong in her conviction to save her marriage to the one man she loved. Len loved her just as much and you'll have to see his reaction and how it turned out.

    This book also shows that men don't always have to be in charge, but also don't have to lose their masculinity in the process. And their women don't have to become men just to exert that control. Each person can be themselves, while fulfilling their need for as much dominance or submission as the relationship requires. This was a wonderful fictional blueprint for couples who have tried everything they could think of to get things better, but need to try just one more.

    A lot of times, romance books are about a new couple or a reunit

    A lot of times, romance books are about a new couple or a reunited couple, so it’s refreshing to read stories about a married couple.  Cissy and Len have lost their chemistry and Cissy’s desperate to get back, along with some respect from her husband.  In her research, she learns of a Female-Led-Relationship (FLR).  She decides to take a chance and try some things.  The rest of the story is about the results and their journey together.

    One of the things that really stands out for me in this book is that research is done to fix a stale marriage.  It’s about a random interest or whim, but stems from a deep desire to fix the marriage and a desperate need to do whatever it takes even if it means stepping out of her comfort zone.  When they tried some things, it didn’t magically make everything better.  They struggled with how it felt, what it meant, and where they should go from there.

    Overall, Unexpected Top is truly a beautiful story about getting that spark back.  Naturally it’s also a very sexy story and sex plays a large part, but it’s the emotion behind it that leaves an impact.  The most important part to me is how much I appreciate the authenticity of the story.  Definitely a really great read!

    Cissy and Len Holden have been married a long time and they have

    Cissy and Len Holden have been married a long time and they have lost that sexual spark in the bedroom. Cissy feels like she's been taken for granted for too long and is desperate to change things because she doesn't want to lose Len, whom she's loved forever. She takes matters into her own hands by researching about Female-Led-Relationship and hopes by introducing Lento this, she can open his eyes to what's been missing and save their marriage. I admit I'm not a fan of FemDom stories but had to read Unexpected Top by author Cassandra Carr and her take on this type of relationship. I actually enjoyed this story since it was not written too over-the-top and it did not dominate the book. I liked that it opened the lines of communication between Cissy and Len that had bee missing for too long. It was fun to see their interaction when Len came to collect on his reward for doing chores and their playful moments. This also brought forth the realization that he gets turned on with this role reversal and the insecurity he feels about it. It was great to see them act as a couple and face this possible prospect in their relationship. Another well written story by this wonderful author.

    Cissy is unhappy in her marriage. She loves her husband Len deep

    Cissy is unhappy in her marriage. She loves her husband Len deeply but feels that she is unappreciated. Len never helps around the house and their sex life is two thumbs down. So she decides it's time for a change. Cissy introduces Len to the world of a Female-Led Relationship. Can he give into his desires and let Cissy control him or will it be too much?




    I've read plenty of BDSM books but never one where it was a FLR relationship. This book was great! Author Cassandra Carr has done a fabulous job of presenting two wonderful characters with all their flaws and insecurities. You could feel Cissy frustrations and fears. I can see myself in Len's shoes have those exact same insecure thoughts. The honesty of their emotions completely drew me in. I was definitely laughing to myself thinking "You go girl!" the whole way through the book. Unexpected Top was definitely a book where you are cheering for both sides. This was such a page turner for me I hated to see it end. I really look forward to reading more from Cassandra Carr. Unexpected Top was definitely a winner!








    I was provided a copy of the book for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review in any way and the opinions of this review are all mine.
