This first installment of the "Playing the Game" series follows the relationship of Brendon and Suzie, first-time dominant and submissive. Theirs is a story plagued with anguish and subjugation as they each struggle to find themselves; from the thrills of power play to the depths of self-degradation.
They are both inexperienced in the roles they play and as this tragic relationship develops, Brendon and Suzie each realise they want more.
Will Suzie get the respect she deserves and will Brendon finally admit how important she has become?

He took hold of my hands and bringing my wrists together, tied them with the rope. He leaned towards me and with one finger, tucked a loose strand of hair behind my ear. I shivered inwardly at his gentle touch, followed so soon after his dominating actions.
“Stay!” He turned his back on me and walked to the kitchen, then poured himself a glass of water. He drank it slowly as he leaned against the breakfast bar. Our eyes met, yet neither of us spoke. His movements were relaxed and unhurried. Once finished, he placed it on the sink and then slowly sauntered his way across the room. The image of a panther stalking its prey came to mind.
“How do you feel right now, one word answer?”
That was easy, in a word, “Vulnerable.”
“Better, it’s a step up from nervous. Are you feeling aroused, yes or no?”
It was hard to admit, especially with him standing over me like he was. “I don’t know....”
“Yes or no?”
After a brief pause, I confessed in a small voice, “Yes.”
“Good, come with me.” In a controlled movement he brought me to my feet. He held my bound hands in one of his and grabbed the paperwork with the other. He headed for the stairs, pulling me along behind him. He was forceful, yet took the steps at a slow pace so I didn’t stumble. It was an overwhelming experience, heightened by the fact he didn’t speak, nor once look back at me."

OMG THIS BOOK IS SO YUMMY YOU HAVE TO READ TO BELIEVE!! This is the first book in the series. And I must say after reading it-- I found myself wanting to know more about the relationship between Brendan and Susie. The characters are well described - the scenes are described so well that you find yourself right in them. Even though this book has DOM/SUB in it - and has Suzie getting hurt. It is very well written, And I would recommend it to all adults. This book is an erotic romance and has more romance in it than erotic. The connection between Brendan and Susie is amazing. All this being said ... Let me tell you some about the book. But you might want to get some coffee an a danish. As this story starts out we are introduced to Susie who is a secretary for the police dept in the homicide division. She is wanting something different in her life. So, one day she see's an ad in the newspaper which she decides to answer. This is when she meets Brandan. And decides to become his submissive. They keep it all a secrete from everyone. She is not allowed to tell anyone that she is seeing Brandon. He has his rep to keep up- as he is a star NFL player. The person she usually goes to at work know that she is not telling something an he is worried about her. Then there are her family and other friends that are also. After a while she tells Brandon that she wants more out of their relationship and wants him to take her out. He has a problem with her drinking -- doesn't like it at all and does not want her to socialize with anyone. Have to READ THE BOOK!!! i RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL ADULTS.

First she signs a non disclosure agreement because he's an athlete/celebrity. Then spends next block of book boringly telling her family, friends & couple people at work. Just sad... You know nothing of Brenden other then he is a mean jerk ashamed to be with her. And lastly... He agrees she can be his girlfriend if she gets a nose job. Otherwise they have no future. And she agrees! Shame on you for writing this book & the message.
This book is simply delicious. Brendon and Suzie and experiencing/experimenting with a new world! I could not put it down, it took me only two nites to finish this!
