When the club Misty’s working at closes, she’s left with few employment options. That is, until her ex-boss offers her an alternative she would have never considered on her own. A friend of his is looking to hire a submissive to satisfy his sexual needs. It’s not exactly conventional, but what the hell? Misty accepts the year-long contract. What’s the worst that can happen? A lot of sex and money to start over?

Owner of a multi-national conglomerate, Garron Worthington works hard for his money and likes to play just as hard in his spare time. His fetish for bondage and dominance dictates his need for hiring women to satisfy him, since he doesn’t have time to court them. Infatuated with Misty, Garron accepts her contract and begins her training. He doesn’t intend to fall in love with her, but sometimes that’s the price of a submissive.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and content (including/not limited to: spanking), ménage (m/f/m), same-sex sexual situations (f/f), voyeurism.

If you were given the opportunity to live as a sexual submissive for a year, after which you would have enough money to start a new life, would you take it? That’s the question Misty Cochran must answer at the beginning of The Price of Submission, a delightful tale of coming to terms with who and what you are and finding love where you least expect it. Michelle Cary has created a story that is equal parts acceptance, trust, and self awareness. It’s not always easy to read, especially as Misty is so torn by events in her past, but her Master, Garron Worthington, is a man that is equally complex. As the two become closer and begin envisioning a future as more than Master and slave, it makes for captivating reading.

The writing is stellar, the characters complex, and the small mystery underlying the story was rather unexpected. I always enjoy a bit of a twist, and I was shocked when I finally learned who was behind the horrible “accidents” that continually occurred to Misty shortly after her arrival Garron’s estate. It kept you guessing throughout.

I recommend this to anyone that enjoys BDSM with protagonists that are both relatable and memorable. The Price of Submission is a must read.
