The Submissive by Tara Sue Me ~ Review

Book One of the Submissive Trilogy
More than 8 Million Reads Online

The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions…
Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…

God lord, I need a fan after this one! While this book is very 50 Shadish (Not really sure the whole story behind this book or which came first, just seen it was fan-fiction) I still really enjoyed it and I so love reading about dom/sub relationships and escaping into that fantasy. 4 Hot, Steamy, Tie-Me Up, and Spank Me Stars!

This story starts out with Abigail (Abby) going in for an interview with Nathaniel to be his submissive. She is a shy librarian who has had a crush on Nathaniel for years. Nathaniel is handsome, wealthy, and powerful and Abby has been following him on paper ever since he helped save her Mom's house from foreclosure.  Abby is an inexperienced sub and Nathaniel doesn't train submissives but there is something about her that captivates him so he decides to make an exception in her case. Right away this book is focusing on the BDSM side of things.

Abby's willing to do whatever Nathaniel wants right from the start to be his submissive.  She will fill out the medical forms, meet his requirements on fitness, sleep, and exercise all to get a taste of the man she has fantasized about and desired for so long. Abby just hopes that Nathaniel will let her in and one day feel the love that she fills for him.

For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

Nathaniel slowly begins to break Abby in as his submissive, even though he seems a bit cold and aloof at times, the sex scenes are off the charts smoldering hot! The more time they spend together you can see Nathaniel's walls wearing down....Nathaniel lost his parents when he was little so he has been broken but you see him slowly letting Abby into his heart. Then there's a twist thrown in that I didn't see coming, and that is where this story take on a life of it's own and things get very angsty!

"You were the goddess I longed to worship. My unobtainable dream. The relationship I could never hope to have."

Although this story was packed full of panty-dropping, HOT sex, The Submissive ends up being one heck of a romance/love story that is expressed passionately through poetry throughout the book.  The ending leaves you anxious to start the next book,  The Dominant which will be from Nathaniel's point of view. I can't wait to read that one and the final book in the series The Training! If you loved 50 shades, I definitely recommend you read this series.
