I enjoyed this novella.  Grace's lawyer boyfriend, Ian, broke up with her 3 years ago but she hasn't completely gotten over him.  They have kept in touch but he has been secretive with his life until one night when he finally gives her a website to look at.  It is then that she realized he is on a BDSM site.  She want to see him and her curiosity gets the better of her so she goes to an audition.  It made for an interesting read in the respect of a person needing to determine just how far they are willing to go for a person they care about and what boundaries they are willing to cross to try to find happiness.

Well written, with an insight into her mind, as she opens the door to a new world of possibilities. There should be more chapters to finish the story.

The Man Who Holds the Whip is a BDSM contemporary romance between Grace Pontaine and her ex-boyfriend Ian from three years back. After a trying day at work as a nurse practitioner, Grace caves into an evening of wine to drown in her woes of being disrespected by an arrogant boss. Furthermore, she does the one thing that often results from her drunken spells: she texts Ian. Unlike the many times before when he responds from a standoffish manner, he actually bares a secret that shocks Grace into actually looking more into it.  Apparently, he stepped away from his old life—leaving her and his life as a lawyer—to work as a Dom for an internet porn site. Grace, intrigued and aroused by the little she did see at the website, takes matters into her own hands. If showing up at the studio is the only way to see Ian now, then she may just as well test how far she would go to do that—including auditioning and starring in a video herself! At a rate that exceeds a whole week's pay per video, how can Grace pass up such an opportunity? Then again, she has been living her life as a goody-two shoes who has done everything right and respectable. Who's to say that Ian wants her back anyway when he left years ago and broke her heart? Can she with her vanilla ways really fulfill his kinky needs?  The Man Who Holds the Whip is a touching story between a feisty heroine awakening to sexual fantasies she previously never entertained (nor conceived) and a compartmentalizing male exploring the possibilities of the spectrum of kink (≤ 24/7 TPE) in daily life. When they work out their kinks, the sparks fly and possibilities previously unexplored open up. Definitely a must-read!

I enjoyed this BDSM story written by author Shoshanna Evers and Grace's journey in discovering kinkier sex with a past love. Ian confesses his need to be a Dom and was afraid that Grace would not have accepted his kinkier side when they were together and having "vanilla" sex. Grace is intrigued with this new revelation and is aroused at the prospect of experiencing it with Ian. It was nice to see that Grace didn't judge Ian for his lifestyle choice and I loved that Ian was protective of Grace and made sure she was comfortable as he introduced her to the pleasure of BDSM in the bedroom. The chemistry between these two characters was sizzling, the sex was hot and you could feel how much they still loved each other even after three years apart. The author did a great job writing an interesting story that flowed smoothly and with characters I enjoyed and wanted to root for.
