This sizzling and arousing story packs an impressive amount of detail into a compact story that draws one into the kinky world of dominants and submissives. The shift in Shelby’s attitude and the combination of patience and discipline meted out by Trevor gives a great picture of how such a relationship would start and develop. I wasn’t quite sure about the end as I thought it wasn’t quite worked out completely, but hopefully there are more stories featuring these two very sensual and sexy individuals. This was a quick sensual and entertaining read by an author who is adept at giving a glimpse into a complicated and intriguing culture.
“A Good Sub Would” by Sierra Cartwright is an erotic novella about submissive Shelby who agrees to a challenging wager at Dark Haven and soon learns what it means to be under the spell of Master Trevor. Having only dabbled in the D/s scene, Shelby is in for quite a surprise as she learns how to accept her role and truly submit under the tutelage of a masterful and uncompromising Dom.
Publisher's Note: A Good sub Would was previously published in the Doms of Dark Haven 2 anthology which is no longer available. It has not been re-edited or revised for this edition.
Shelby, a wanna-be sub, hasn't found a Dom strong enough to push past her need to be in control. Her experiences as a sub have been yawn-inducing. She's fantasized plenty, though, about Trevor Lawton, one of Dark Haven's legendary, mouthwateringly firm Doms.
As the stakes get higher at the charity poker match, Dom Trevor Lawton is fascinated by the woman kneeling across the table from him. Problem is, she's not a good sub. Oh, she tries, and she's lovely. But she's not very good at following orders. The woman needs a firm, unyielding hand...his.
