The Reluctant Submissive
Release Date: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Horny Devil Publishing
It’s been four years since professional dancer and actress, Vivian Debree, has forsaken all other aspects of her life to pursue her dream across New York City in chase of the Broadway Holy Grail.
Renowned New York hot-shot financier and control freak, Julian Maddox, has an unforgiving past with a heart that is absolutely untouchable.
When their worlds collide, it is apparent that fame has retrieved its price, leaving no room for love in a cutthroat industry…or is there?
“It was as if a part of his soul knew she was supposed to be his.”
The Reluctant Submissive is a perfect short story filled with wonder, lust, and passion. I was captivated from the start. With this story being the first project that these two amazing authors worked on together, I would have to say Rayne Bexley and Zoey Hill are a force to be reckoned with.
“The world made room for her; she didn’t make room for it.”
Vivian Debree has been dancing for the last 20 years, ever since she was a toddler. All she has ever wanted to do was make it on her own and find her big break. She is no stranger to a casting call, so she knows all to well, the fear of not getting a call back and being rejected. All of that escapes her mind when she is on that stage, and the only thing matters is her being in the moment and doing what she loves the most. Everything changes with her encounter with the gorgeous man in the two thousand dollar suit.
“I have, shall we say…a particular taste.”
Julian Maddox is the type of man that just oozes sexiness and authority. Being a high class financier in New York he is accustomed to getting what he wants, and he wants his Vivi. Before he even knew her name or where she came from he wanted her. He wanted her as his submissive. His. Julian does not make the same mistake twice. Having never really dealt with something that happened in his past, he realizes he has to be gentle with Vivian. Have her make the choice to be his. He will only give her a gentle push in the right direction.
“Because you are an unknown. You have something that calls to me. You are, for lack of a better word…perfect.”
I loved the storyline with this read. Something different. Something unique and intriguing, and left me wanting more. The sexual tension build up between these two characters was amazing. When Vivi and Julian finally came together it was pure, intense, and raw. I think I was holding my breath the entire time. Julian was beautifully intense and I fell in love with his domineering, arrogant ass right away. I can’t wait to learn more about all of these wonderful characters, as well as watch them grown and deal with the ghosts of their pasts. These two authors have brought us a story with so much depth and promise, that you will crave for the next installment. Bravo Ladies!
