Review by: Jade Onyx on May 31, 2014 :
The Man Who Holds the Whip is a BDSM contemporary romance between Grace Pontaine and her ex-boyfriend Ian from three years back. After a trying day at work as a nurse practitioner, Grace caves into an evening of wine to drown in her woes of being disrespected by an arrogant boss. Furthermore, she does the one thing that often results from her drunken spells: she texts Ian. Unlike the many times before when he responds from a standoffish manner, he actually bares a secret that shocks Grace into actually looking more into it.

Apparently, he stepped away from his old life—leaving her and his life as a lawyer—to work as a Dom for an internet porn site. Grace, intrigued and aroused by the little she did see at the website, takes matters into her own hands. If showing up at the studio is the only way to see Ian now, then she may just as well test how far she would go to do that—including auditioning and starring in a video herself! At a rate that exceeds a whole week's pay per video, how can Grace pass up such an opportunity? Then again, she has been living her life as a goody-two shoes who has done everything right and respectable. Who's to say that Ian wants her back anyway when he left years ago and broke her heart? Can she with her vanilla ways really fulfill his kinky needs?

The Man Who Holds the Whip is a touching story between a feisty heroine awakening to sexual fantasies she previously never entertained (nor conceived) and a compartmentalizing male exploring the possibilities of the spectrum of kink (≤ 24/7 TPE) in daily life. When they work out their kinks, the sparks fly and possibilities previously unexplored open up. Definitely a must-read!

Review by: Lisa Carlock on Jan. 27, 2013 :
I was captivated from the beginning. I thought Grace was a strong heroine who knew what she wanted but didn't just jump in no matter how much she wanted Ian. Ian may have thought he was not boyfriend material but with Grace he saw things that he wanted and needed. Having his cake and eat it too was perfect. And Grace exploring a whole new world with Ian was a journey worth taking.

Review by: Shannon on Jan. 26, 2013 :
If you can wrap your brain around a promising young lawyer giving up everything to become an internet porn Dom, then you'll enjoy this one from Shoshanna Evers.

Ian had left Grace because he was worried she couldn't handle his kink. Grace had been plagued with self doubt ever since Ian had dumped her. Determined to prove she could handle whatever had driven him away from her, Grace enters Ian's world. You will not be disappointed. Ms. Evers has a knack for writing good, believable smut.

Unfortunately, the beginning was clunky - the dialogue just didn't seem to flow correctly. But once she got her characters moving it became a nice short story about two people reconnecting.
