When a case of mistaken identity introduces her to the charismatic dominant, Garrett Hughes, she discovers her salvation. In hopes of penning an accurate portrayal of the BDSM lifestyle, Garrett agrees to educate Lexie.

She eagerly places herself in Garret’s capable hands, but what starts out as just business with the sexy Mr. Hughes takes a turn toward the unexpected.

Taming Me falls in the Cover to Covers tie In Series but is a stand alone.

•••••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: TAMING ME is the fifth installment in Alexandrea Weis’s contemporary, adult Cover to Covers erotic romance series. This is architect Garrett Hughes and romance author Alexandra ‘Lexie’ Palmer’s story. Each book in the series can be read as a stand alone as the storylines are not connected but tie in together through the first book in the series Cover to Covers.

Told from first person point of view (Lexie) the storyline finds Lexie in desperate need of ideas for her next story. When her agent suggests switching up the heat factor into something more erotic like BDSM, Lexie finds herself at a loss. Enter Garrett Hughes-a Dom who offers Lexie the experience of a lifetime-first hand information and an up close and personal venture into the secret life of BDSM.

Lexie is a feisty, aggressive, dominant heroine who has issues with people (especially men) trying to control her life. There is nothing submissive about Lexie’s personality and when requested to play the role, the abhorrent nature of submission is foreign and unwelcome. Lexie’s future as a writer is dependent upon the success of her next story and Garrett is her ticket into the world of domination and submission. There is a fine line between alpha female and b*tch, and in this Lexie’s acerbic personality and character traits tread a dangerous line. She is not an easy character to love.

Garrett is a Dom who is willing to take responsibility for Lexie’s training but teaching Lexie to submit is nothing short of a disaster. He is a man who commands respect and submission, and Lexie is quite possibly the worst candidate for the lifestyle. There are moments of exasperation and frustration for a man who is desperate to show Lexie the truth, and in the end, he discovers that he has ‘bitten off more than he can chew’. He is falling in love with a woman who is unlike anyone he has ever known.

The secondary and supporting characters include many of the BDSM lifestyle members including the all knowing Empress Mabel, and Garrett’s friend and fellow club member Colin. We are introduced to Lexie’s agent, a man who, although is not the most generous with compliments, knows that for Lexie to succeed she must push her writing in another direction; and Lexie’s mother Lily-a woman of experience and the thorn in Lexie’s side.

TAMING ME looks at the ‘darker’ side of the BDSM lifestyle. This is not the romanticized version of the Dom/sub relationship but a stormier and dangerous look at a life choice; a choice most people will never accept. The scenarios felt accurate; genuine and sincere. The premise is informative and definitive. TAMING ME is also a love story about two people who fall in love while fighting their attraction and need for one another. If you can get past Lexie’s personality quirks, TAMING ME is a compelling and seductive read.

  1. Great review Sandy and yes sometimes the ‘personality quirks’ are difficult especially when they are a turn off to some readers.

    Congrats to Alexandrea.
