Seduced by Fire (Partners in Play #1) by Tara Sue Me-a review
About the book: Release Date March 4, 2014
Julie Masterson craves a taste of danger.
Despite being familiar with the different games people play in the bedroom, she’s never given in to her curiosity about putting her body in someone else’s power—until a chance meeting with Daniel Covington, the seductive Senior VP of Weston Bank, draws her into a titillating new world of sexual experience, one that she never knew she desperately needed.
Daniel is highly respected within his community, but he hasn’t had an exclusive relationship for over two years. Yet Julie’s eager innocence is driving him to the brink of ecstasy, making him rethink his feelings about commitment.
As their sizzling connection heats up, Daniel is ready to take Julie fully under his command. But when the dangerous side of their play rears its ugly head, Julie will have to decide if she trusts him enough to surrender completely—or if she should escape before she gets burned…
REVIEW: SEDUCED BY FIRE is the first instalment in Tara Sue Me’s new, contemporary, erotic, BDSM series-Partners in Play. If you have read Tara’s The Submissive Trilogy much of the premise and plot is very similar although each instalment in the Partners in Play series may feature a different leading couple. This is Julie Masterson and Daniel Covington’s story-young independent woman meets gorgeous, rich man and the sparks fly.
The storyline follows Julie as she embarks on a relationship with the sexy and well to do Daniel Covington. Little does Julie know but Daniel is a senior Dom-a well positioned member in the local Dom/sub lifestyle and Daniel wants more from Julie than she may be willing to give. When Julie discovers the truth about Daniel, she realizes that perhaps she has been a submissive in the bedroom all of her life. With her best friend Sasha ( also a sub), Julie will begin to explore a different side of the bedroom and one that will break her heart when a darker side of the lifestyle emerges.
The relationship between Daniel and Julie is quick to build. From friends to lovers to something much more, Julie will soon lose her heart to a man who may not be able to give her everything she wants. The love making is sensual; the sex is hot and hard; and the relationship will come to a screeching halt when someone close gets in too deep. My only complaint-I didn’t feel the love between our leading characters. The relationship felt two sided in that Daniel wanted to dominate and Julie wanted to love.
Tara Sue Me has written a storyline that will pull you into the back rooms, play rooms and dungeons of the Dom/sub relationships. There are some graphic BDSM descriptive encounters, some detailed explanations as to the expectations and requirements in the Dom/sub exchange and a cast of secondary characters that will break your heart when the lifestyle overwhelms and sucks them under.
SEDUCED BY FIRE is another erotic and edgy storyline-a little darker than Tara Sue Me’s previous series-but one that will end with a HEA (for now).
