Dommissimma, #1

Master is the first book in the Dommissimma series by Raven McAllan. Caden finds his wife fifteen years after she left without a word. He wants her back so he goes to claim her. Diana, or Anna as she is called, is thrown into a tailspin. She tries to face her demons but are the too strong to overcome. This is an emotional gripping novel of a side of BDSM that does not seem to be told, maybe because the fun stuff is so easy to write about.

Anna is a strong woman who comes across as bratty at time. Anna walked away from her master and husband Caden over fifteen years ago but she never forgot him. She did not talk to him about her fears because she thought it would disappoint him so she left him instead. I found it odd that she has trouble walking to a BDSM club but yet she works for one.

Caden is a Master that has a reputation that precedes him. He loves his wife with his whole heart even after all the time that has passed. He is very patient with her as she is trying to move passed her issues or at least be able to verbalize them to him. He blames himself for not seeing her issues that made her run from him.

The chemistry between Caden and Anna is blistering hot. The main problem they have together is the lack of communication on both parts. Anna does not express herself to him and Caden never pushed her to talk either. It seemed they both ignored the problem until Anna ran. The sex scenes were sizzling but I loved that that was not the main focus of the book.

The secondary characters were very realistic and I enjoyed how they each fit in to the story to help both Anna and Caden come back to each to other. I had a hard time putting this book down once I started it. Overall, this was an emotionally gripping novel on a subject that does not seem to be told much but is very realistic. I wonder what Ms. McAllan has is store for the read as the series continues?
