Embracing My Submission (The Doms of Genesis, Book 1) by Jenna Jacob

Haunted for years by dreams of a savage, amber eyed Dominant with lips so enticing my soul ached in frustration and lust. None of the Dominants at Genesis, my local BDSM club ever stirred me in such blistering ways. While I tried to fill my submissive desires vicariously through interactions at the club, I attempted to convince myself it was enough. But it wasn't. My dream Dom made certain I hungered for more.

Forced beyond what I could bear, my passion and frustration exploded. I threw in the towel, determined to stop chasing a dream and gave up completely on finding submissive surrender. But fate intervened when two gunshots split the night. Forced to confront my desires and insecurities, I was shocked to realize that my dreams may have held a deeper meaning. Were they compelling me to finally embrace my submission?

Storyline: GOOD Intimacy Level: D.R.I.P(Don't Read In Public) + Sex-citingly GOOD Enjoyment: GREAT Length: 4455 kindle / 252 pg Style: Multicultural BDSM Erotica I'm in love.....and I don't know where to start. First off, I want to shake the author silly for making me cry, I wasn't expecting that. The story took you from curiousity, intrigued,emotional, with a bit of tearful moments and then to sexual. If you are debating reading this,then read the sample for your kindle, it gives the first three chapters, so that should wet your appetite enough to want to read it. This isn't your watered down, no storyline BDSM, it had substance to it. If you can't stand the heat, the content and language within this book, put down the book and walk away slowly. Julianna a.k.a Emerald, has been at Genesis for four years and is getting frustrated as she has yet to find a Dom who will take her, and being the only one without a Dom is starting to become a bit embarrassing. On the verge of an attack, she is rescued by the man she's been seeing in her dreams, Mika, a fine specimen of a man I might add. I won't say who Mika is as it's apart of the excitement for me when he rescues her. By chapter five, curiosity, mix with a bit of excitement starts flowing in to my reading, not because of what happen to Julianna, but who. The chemistry and emotional pull between Mika and Julianna was good for me because it wasn't just another BDSM story, but it also felt like a true love story and that's what tug at my heart. The hospital scene, I was all over the place. I commend the author on how she conveyed the hospital scene to me as a reader. In that moment and scene, I was thinking to myself, it almost felt like everything happen for a reason for Mika and Julianna to bring them to that point. Pretty much after that, sexual enjoyment exploded within the pages and Mika and Julianna's Dom and Sub characters went to another level. What also made this story, the secondary characters of club Genesis, a freaky bunch, that's what they all are, hehehe. You can definitely tell they were not just friends but consider each other family and I love that. The surprise for me was Emile, Mika's father. I selfishly wanted to keep reading a bit more about him and this personal assistant. Overall, a brilliant read for me personally and I can truly say that I enjoyed this story from chapter one right down to the epilogue.

4.5 Stars Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Jennifer & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I was hooked by the roller-coaster of emotions I felt as I turned the pages. ~Under the Covers Julianna is a CPA by day, but a trained submissive known as Emerald by night. She’s been hurt by a less than genuine Dom in the past and has longed to find her One, the Dom of her dreams. For years, Julianna has been visited in her dreams by a mysterious Dom. But he has yet to appear to her at her BDSM club, Genesis. She’s grown frustrated and embarrassed that after years of looking, no one at Genesis has approached her with the intent to claim her as His own. After a traumatic assault at the Club one night, Julianna is rescued by Mika, the veiled owner of Genesis. She’s shocked to realize the Mika IS the Dom of her dreams, her fantasy come true. But Mika has ghosts of his own that make giving his heart to another slave beyond what he can handle. Julianna wants nothing more than to submit to Mika with her heart, soul, and body. But in becoming not just a sub but a slave, will she loose her very self in the process? This was my first work by Jenna Jacob and I was hooked by the roller-coaster of emotions I felt as I turned the pages. I happen to love first person perspectives and the deep emotional connections they allow me to create with the main character. This was no exception. Julianna is a complex. Despite years in the lifestyle, she has reservations about her ability to handle certain aspects of Master/slave relationships. I really loved the genuine feel I got from her as a character, her hesitancy and uncertainty. She’s a bit of a brat which I found endearing. She’s no tame submissive. The traumatic experience leading up to Julianna and Mika’s first encounter was difficult to read and I applaud the author’s acknowledgement of real Doms versus predators in the BDSM world. Mika is wonderful: a big, beautiful Dom with an equally large heart. He’s not a pushover, but one of the more gentle Doms I’ve read and I felt that’s just what Julianna needed. The sex between the two is soooo hot it requires alone time to read. Julianna is insatiable and Mika knows how to give her what she needs while maintaining complete control. I think the secondary characters added so much to the book. Mika’s father is a Dom in his own right and just oozes sex. The Doms and subs at the club are intriguing and I’d like to see sequels around them. For me the best BDSM books really delve into the psychology of submission, packing a big emotional punch and this one made me cry! I want a Mika of my own! *Review copy provided by author

This one is very sexy, but that's not the end of it. The characters are strong, and the story line is entertaining and surprisingly romantic. I think it will appeals to romance and erotica fans. There's a little mystery too, adding a fair amount of tension to the plot.

A love story between Mika and Julianna. Mika lovingly and patiently helps Julianna over her fears and insecurities. Julianna learns to embrace her submissiveness. Mika learns he can love more than one submissive. A beautiful love story! Jenna Jacob is an author I'll read more of.

This book lured me in. It's not your typical Dom/Sub book, which was nice. What I mean is, there's more to the characters in this story. It's not ALL about the sex scenes...though you do have them-but, they are done with taste. I enjoyed it! Happy reading!

I loved this book. It makes you laugh, cry, hope, and dream. It is not another porn book. This story has a plot line, twists and turns, as well as, very well developed characters. This will be one to reread a lot.

Not a bad read. Alot of sex so would not read if you do not like explicit details ;) A couple of errors here and there, but they did not subtract from the story (for me).

It had a good storyline. But i just couldnt absorb myself in it. Drake is emeralds sir, but Master to his man slave. Emerald and her "brother" the slave, are both subs to him. Shes desperate for a Master of her own. He wont allow it. But still lets her scene with Domme and play with her brother. Mika owns the club they use. He wants her, but cant get over his deceased wife who looks just like emerald. It just wasnt for me.

Embracing greatness This is the first book in the awesome series by Jenna Jacob, The Doms of Genesis. When you read this book you are not going to want to put it down and you will want to keep reading the next books in the series. This was the first book I read by Jenna Jacob. She makes you want to know what's going on with each character in her books. In this book Emerald is fighting her past and trying to find herself, her submission, and a master all at the same time. Will she be able to. After I read this book I could not wait for the next one.
