*I was provided a copy of Submission Therapy in exchange for an honest review. I am not compensated for my honest opinion.*
Billionaire Christina Pocock is on top of the world in most people’s view. But what they can’t see underneath the surface is that she’s a ticking time bomb ready to explode thanks to anxiety, stress, and her need to be in control. Her therapist insists she’s out of options and out of time to save herself. Her last hope: Submission Therapy.
Master Sweet is not what Christina was expecting when her therapist sent her to her last resort. He’ll have his work cut out for him with Christina because she’s not sure she can give up control and become submissive.
Submission Therapy is book one in the Billionaire Dominance series, and it is a short story. Told from Christina’s point of view, the book details her first session of Submission Therapy with Master Sweet. We watch as she goes from complete control freak, through giving in bit by bit, until she can finally hand over control to her Master and relax in her submission. The story is well written and interesting, and I found very few grammatical errors.
There were some plot issues revolving BDSM that brought this down for me. When Christina arrived at Master Sweet’s office, she had no idea what was going to be happening or that he was a Dom. She was never given a choice about participating. Granted, this was her last hope for her health, but BDSM is not something that should be entered into blindly. Each participant should understand and consent to the activities. Christina’s consent was never given. From my perspective, she was forced into a non-consensual act. Along the same lines, she was never given a safe word, there was no discussion of protection, and limits were never spoken about. In fact, Christina revealed a hard limit in the narrative, and Master Sweet crossed that line. This is not responsible BDSM, and although I’m willing to forgive some things for the sake of fiction, these issues could have been handled a little better.
Overall, the story is well written and hot, just not for me since I prefer more realism in a BDSM story.
