Note: This is book 3 in the Club Rack and Ruin series, but each book can be read as a standalone.
Tamara is a sub with a problem. All the submissives in the erotic novels she reads, and a few of the real-life subs she knows, seem to be able to orgasm on command…but she can’t even make herself come with someone else in the room. Worse, her last couple of play partners have been disappointed with her inability to perform in the bedroom. How will she ever find the Dom she craves?
Evan is new to the area, and upon his first visit to Rack and Ruin, Tamara catches his eye. Every relationship he’s been in has crashed and burned because of his mistakes, but something about this sweet, damaged submissive compels him to try again.
They’ve both suffered in the past, but when unexpected news shakes Evan’s world to its foundations, Tamara must decide if the love she’s found is worth facing a fresh onslaught of hurt…
About the Author
About the Stories…
Just what is it about bondage, pain-play and barked commands that make a submissive fall to her knees? Amy Valenti is captivated by the Dominance and submission dynamic, and her books mainly feature growly, Dominant men with feisty yet submissive women. Occasionally she likes to write about hot Dom-on-Domme action and ménage involving two Dominant partners with one lucky female sub.
Safe, sane and consensual BDSM is important to her, and she tries to balance out the intense scenes in her books with some tender, loving aftercare.
About the Author…
Amy Valenti attained ‘crazy cat lady’ status at four years old, but took a little longer to get to the ‘published author’ stage, which was her other goal in life. Now in her late twenties,she tries to minimise the number of cats she puts into her erotic romance stories, but more than one has slipped into a character’s home while her back’s been turned. After all, the ultimate test of a man’s worth is what his new partner’s pets think of him…
Cats aside, Amy enjoys writing about intelligent female characters who know themselves and their desires. She’s been fascinated by sex, relationship and power-play dynamics for many years, and experiments with different sub-genres under the overarching category of BDSM, concentrating on Domination and submission romance in particular.
She also writes vanilla lesbian erotica (without the romance!) under the pseudonym Sidonie Spice.

I have just recently discovered Author Amy Valenti through a FB party. So glad I did! Her books are very sexy. If you want a book that makes your panties wet….this is a book for you! This series is about D/s (Dominate and submissive) relationships. Complex Triggers starts at a club called Club Rack and Ruin. Evan is a special kind of Dom, and Tamara is a sweet sub that is going to school to get her Master’s in teaching. They both carry a secret in their lives. Evan has a past that only he can tell and chooses to hide, thinking it is a sign of weakness. Tamara has a big secret too, one that she does not want anyone to know. Other Doms have not understood Tamara’s problem. Can they overcome the secrets they hold close? Or will they trust each other to work through what holds them back? I received an Advanced Reader Copy from the Author in exchange for an honest review… honestly; my rechargeables got a good work out! I totally enjoyed the characters and subject matter which were very realistic and true to life. It's good to read about a common problem and its resolution. I give this book, 5 stars because, not only was the sex scenes hot, but the story/plot/dialogue was worth 5 stars as well.
A great fast paced story with excellent characters, I loved Tamara and Evan. The story has plenty of drama and emotion and the sex is hot! Enjoyable read!
