What happens when the Master turns the tables and wants his submissive to be his Domme? Well, I’m not going to tell you. I think you will need to read this lovely little short for yourself.
I thought the idea behind this story, being the switch in the power play roles, was a good one. The Master’s Submission is a well written BDSM short story, and as many short stories go, it is always hard to make a real solid connection to the characters, because many times, the reader needs more background to find that true connect with them. However, the author did a great job at painting a picture of the inner anxiety of Bethany as she works to find her inner dominatrix in hopes to please her master.
Short are difficult, because as a reader you want more, but I imagine the author is telling the “piece” of the story they want their readers to know about. I hate reading bad reviews based solely on the reasoning it was short, yet as a reviewer, how do I review it fairly? First, I can’t compare a short to a novel, so as a reader/reviewer I didn’t try. I asked these questions. Was the writing good? Did I enjoy this story? Did I want more of the story? Yes. Yes. And Yes. But wanting more means I was vested in this story enough that
wanting to read more can’t be considered a bad thing.
Master’s Submission was a fun, engaging, sexy read.
