Book 1 in the Submissives Wish Series
When Gia Lopez signs up for the Submissive’s Wish Charity Auction she has no idea that she’s about to be bought by a Russian Dom who will do anything to make her fantasies come true. Including staging an elaborate kidnapping that Gia believes is real. Ivan is instantly drawn to Gia and he wants to be the best Master she’s ever had. As he spends time with Gia he begins to have intense feelings for the strong, independent, and sexy American woman. He’s only won a week of her service but wishes to keep her forever.
Unaware of Ivan’s true feelings, Gia fights her growing emotional attachment to him. All she wants is to settle down with a nice Dom in the United States, continue her career, and live a normal life. However, Ivan sets a plan into motion that will push Gia to all of her limits and take her on a global journey of self-discovery, extreme pleasure, and love.
Warning: Contains Erotic Spanking, Subspace, f/f situations, a devastatingly sexy Dom who knows what he wants, and a submissive who just might be ready to give him what he needs.
Let’s start with the narrator-whew his accent is sexy!! I did have to listen a little more closely at first to understand him at times, but I quickly got used to it and was fine from that point on. I did notice a few times when I believe he said wrong words-I saw this because the sentence didn’t make sense so I’m assuming since I didn’t have the book right in front of me while listening. Holy crap this book is freaking hot! Heed the warning above my kittens! This book is full of seriously sexy BDSM scenes and one hell of a head fuck! You know I’m not one for ruining surprises so I won’t say more than that about that subject. Ivan is all about pushing Gia’s limits. He takes her to places she’s never even imagined were possible and in turn she gives him everything she has. Ivan rides the line between insanely sexy and dangerous. There are some pretty strong scenes in this one so make sure you are prepared to read some heavy stuff along with the lighter side of things. There is even some knife play which always peeks my interest. It’s not all BDSM though, there is plenty of romance happening too. This book will give you a little bit of action, plenty of passion, and a love story as well. Another amazing read by Ann Mayburn, I can’t wait to see what she brings next!
