For over a year, Julia has helped her clients ignite their sex lives, while her own resembles that of a nun.

That is, until Daniel. Honest, and possibly one of her most dominant clients, he’s already tempting enough without his invitation to meet in person. And his charm doesn’t end there.

Stunned by Daniel’s offer to train her as his sub for one week, Julia’s gut instinct is to pull the plug. But when they finally meet, Julia’s dormant desire flares, and her private fantasies can’t compare to what Daniel does with his hands, a flogger or a pair of cuffs.

Faced with a mouthwatering proposition and bent to his will, can Julia attain true submission before the week’s end, or will she walk away with nothing more than the memory of Daniel’s kiss, a taste of his skin, and a new-found desire like she has never experienced before?

Being an online therapist has its challenges and Julia is headed for a major conflict of interest over her fascination with her client, Daniel.

Enveloped in her growing desire to know more about the world of bondage and BDSM, Julia oversteps the boundaries of her role as a therapist and agrees to meet her client Daniel at his dungeon. A Dom and owner of Journeys, Daniel is a master in his universe and intends to show Julia what it means to be a sub under his control.

Early into the book, I found myself wondering why Julia would allow herself to go beyond the constraints of her position of therapist, but as the story kept moving forward I understood perfectly. Daniel is a hottie and his masterful presence would have tested any woman’s boundaries. Agreeing to one week of training to better understand the lifestyle, Julia rushes headlong into one of the most intense experiences a person can have.

Being a reader of BDSM erotica and a student of the lifestyle, I have looked into the use of the title “master”. Most of the literature I have come across and from my experience, “master” is either used when you are in a dedicated relationship that is very close to a marriage commitment or are in a M/s (master, slave) arrangement. The use of the term master in this book felt a little premature to me. Using “Sir” would have been a better choice, but I also understand that the term, just like the lifestyle, can be used with varied degrees of involvement. In this short term scenario, having the sub call the dominant “master” made me question it a little more than I would have normally, but again, to each reader goes the experience and preference.

Overall, the interaction between Daniel and Julia was hot and the author did a great job of ratcheting up the sexual tension. The scene where Daniel circles Julia to access her level of fear or nervousness was really done well. You could see it in your mind like a movie playing out across the screen. Different BDSM scenarios that delve into voyeurism make things very intense and I found this book to be one that kept my interest.

If you want a read that brings BDSM and voyeurism to the cutting edge of patient-client relations then this one is for you.
