The Dominant

The Submissive Trilogy, #2

The Dominant book 2, in The Submissive series by Tara Sue Me is an emotional rollercoaster introspective look into the mind of a confused Nathaniel West. Resident dominant at large.

Ever wondered about the thought process of men? Well, The Dominant is an inside peak into what could possibly be the most exhausting bit of male angst that I have ever read. Wow! I thought Nathaniel had his act together; Seem appearances can be deceiving.

The book recaps the events of book 1, The Submissive, from Nathaniel’s point of view. It does a wonderful job of laying out the when, where and why’s of his methodical sexual dominance and ultimate enrapturing of Abby’s submissive heart. To the casual reader Nathaniel appears to be in complete command of his BDSM relationship. Yet, secrets from his past continue to encroach on his objectivity and mental well-being. Secrets that cause him to cross lines and blur truths

Sexually the book is twice as hot as it predecessor. Knowing the why’s of Nathaniel’s demands makes the BDSM sweeter. His struggles to maintain a fair amount of emotional distance is pure angst for both of them. Yet, Abby is his obsession that he just can’t kick.

Although the book’s main story-line focuses on Nathaniel, Ms. Me successfully incorporates two minor secondary plots that help the book flow. An addition from Nathaniel’s BDSM past helps strengthen his lifestyle choices and helps him come to terms with his feelings about Abby. The lighter side of the book is all about family and what it means to be accepted.

While there were times when the re-telling of the submissive from a pov standpoint was a little tedious, I must say I did enjoy experiencing Nathaniel’s personal angst.

Did enjoy “The Dominant”? I sure did and can’t wait for the next installment.
