Pretty hot with a touch of suspense. A great short version of Bella Juarez's military stories.

BDSM birthday surprise! Her best friend takes her to newbie night at the BDSM club and hands her off to the one man she didn't expect to see there, her sexy neighbor.
Once in his capable hands she finds she's more than interested in the lifestyle but she's also interested in the man who never brings the same woman home twice.

Hot as hell!!

A patient man who sees the submissive but knows he has to take it slow or he'll never have her.
She left the BDSM lifestyle years ago an swore she'd never go back to it. After a failed marriage to a man who did nothing but put her down, how can she handle the Dominant man who want's her for his own?
This ones pretty hot too, I loved the brattiness of he heroine, her inability to let everything go all at once was refreshing. No instalove but a slower paced story of learning to trust again.
Broken by: Julia Sykes -
A woman hiding her past and a man determined to break down her walls.
This one wasn't my favorite, I wasn't a fan of Damien's determination. He seemed way to pushy to me but in the end it worked for him.
Fire and Ice by: Juliet Braddock -
Drew & Maxine are always a hot read! Maxine likes to be punished so she pushes Drew, Drew is sexy as hell and his dominance is just right. These two are explosive together, but this one also has a touch of sweetness for Valentine's day.
Submission Dance by: Lori King-
Marley is interested in being completely dominated. She wants to know if she's truly a submissive and begs her friend Killian to let her attend one of his fetish parties.
Here she runs into Lex, a dominant who hasn't taken a submissive in quite awhile. He's preoccupied mending his broken heart and raising his daughter, or he was until Marley walked in.
Finally a woman has lit the spark inside him that's been missing for so long, one night with the pretty little sub may not be enough.
You can't go wrong with a Lori King story and this one is no different! She knows just how to blend the emotional with erotica.

When she decides to see a Dom to get what she needs she's a bit shocked to find the man of her dreams ready and willing to do what it takes to get her where she needs to be.
This one was great, I loved the couple being able to reconnect and find new things they enjoyed in the bedroom.
Surrender Her Inhibitions by: Nicole Morgan -
Two people who met at the wrong time.
She was too broken and wasn't ready for him. When they meet again can they make it work?
I'm a sucker for second chances an what could've beens so this one was right up my alley.
In His Hands by: Raven McAllan-
This one was okay for me, it's a nice part of the anthology but not at the top of my list.
Indulge by: Sherri Hayes-
Two relative newbies to the BDSM world and their kinky getaway.
This one was pretty hot, I'll definitely look for more from this new to me author in the future.
