I, Sebastian Kane, had everything a man could want. Money, Power, Prestige. I thought I was content in life with the occasional submissive to occupy me. Then one night, at the sound of a woman’s laughter, things suddenly changed. After meeting Miss Belle Anderson, I found myself wanting her, needing her and demanding her submission. Then I did something I'd never done before, I fell in love with my submissive.

Could I, Belle Anderson, who had never been in a relationship in her entire adult life, cede control over my body to a man? It wasn’t just for sex, because if was just about a repeat of what we did the previous night, I’d be all in. No, it was about discipline, floggers, canes, whips, nipple and genital clamps. It was about being restrained, blind folded, and gagged. It was also about trusting someone enough to know how far to push your limits, to command you to do something so far out of your comfort zone it was downright nerve racking. Could I? More importantly though could I do all this without falling in love with my Dom.

 The Unexpected Submissive by G.J. Cox (Book #1)

The Unexpected Submissive: Book OneThe evening the man who had all the power, control and wealth heard her sweet laugh was the evening he offered up $100,000 to have dinner with the woman who shattered his stereo-typical idea of the perfect woman. Sebastian Kane needs to control and it all goes back to the time he gave up control for love. Now, this Dom has contracts as he takes submissives to his playroom and they know the score…when he says leave, they do. But sweet and spicy Belle has thrown him for a loop with her kind heart, her feisty attitude and her own need to feel independent.

Belle is shell-shocked that anyone like Sebastion would even notice her, let alone pay to have dinner with her, even if it was for charity. She carries that poor body image women have had scarred into their brains. Belle is not tall and willowy, she is short, overweight and as she thinks, lacks anything a man could want, so she avoids the pain of rejection by cultivating a mass of “friends” who are male, hot and will come to her aid in a flash. How? Her personality.

What she wasn’t prepared for was Sebastion’s proposition, to be his sub, to obey his commands and bow to his whims and to avoid all emotional ties deeper than the D/s arraignment goes. Her inner wild child comes out to play with his inner Dom, but boundaries are crossed and Sebastion finds a need to possess all of her, at all times, no matter what. Could it be he’s falling in love? Has the big bad Dom been brought to his knees by a woman who refuses to submit 100%, let alone sign his ridiculous agreement? When Belle is threatened by an unknown stalker, her bodyguards, both friends and hires sound like the who’s who of alpha badness, but can all of Sebastion’s power keep her safe, especially when she continues to insist she can take care of herself?

G. J. Cox presents The Unexpected Submissive, clearly erotica, clearly a D/s romance, but, there is more to this tale than whips, chains, pleasure or pain, there is the delightful, and sometimes aggravating Belle. Then there is Sebastion, 100% control freak with a Neanderthal need to possess and control every second of his life and those around him. As devastatingly handsome as he is, I wanted to take him aside and tell him to keep it in the playroom.

Searing scenes, explicit eroticism and a plot that shares moments of fun, teasing, humor and darkness, G.J. Cox has done a remarkable job of making a sensitive scene that is not for all into a razor-sharp romance with a touch of gentleness. Sometimes you just need to step out of your comfort zone, just like Sebastion and Belle.

I received this copy from G.J. Cox in exchange for my honest review.
