BACK COVER BLURB:
Clarissa Levinson’s boyfriend has asked for a very unusual birthday present this year. He wants her to fulfill three wishes, and all of them require Clarissa to push her own personal boundaries and become the boss not just at work, but in the bedroom as well.

His kinky demands initially make her nervous, but the more she gives him what he wants, the weaker her inhibitions become. In fact, she’s starting to really like being the one in charge. Who knew domination could be so much fun?

COVER SNARK:
Boring man titty that has nothing to do with the story.

FIRST LINES:

Of course, Clarissa Levinson knew what her boyfriend had put in the envelope. And it wasn't exactly a gift card, or a fistful of notes, or a silly picture of them together. Oh no. Technically speaking, it wasn't even a gift for her.



LYNETTE'S TWO CENTS:

I read several BDSM novels, but I've only read two other novels where the man was the submissive, well really one because the other was a GLBT novel. While I thought they were sexy reads, I didn't get either of them. I got this one. Despite the short space, Ms. Stein did an excellent job of illustrating Oliver's need for submission and Clarissa's reluctance and then ultimate attraction to giving into Oliver's needs. I don't really have much to say on this quickie. I liked it. The smexing was hot, and in addition to the smexing I was impressed with how Ms. Stein didn't make it just about sex. I felt the emotions and the love between Clarissa and Oliver.

This is an author that I would read again.

WHERE PURCHASED:

I liked and I thought the twist where the guy was the sub well done. It wasn't a hard core D/s story like most, I liked because it seemed more realistic to me.

Thank you for the lovely review, Lynette! It's great to hear, especially when it's something as not-often-liked as femdom!
