The Enticement (Submissive #5) by: Tara Sue Me

Release Date: April 7, 2015 from NAL
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"Limits were made to be pushed.

Abby West has everything she wanted: a family, a skyrocketing new career, and a sexy, Dominant husband who fulfills her every need. Only, as her life outside the bedroom becomes hectic, her Master’s sexual requirements inside become more extreme. Abby doesn’t understand Nathaniel’s increased need for control, but she can’t deny the delicious way her body reacts to his tantalizing demands…

Between Abby’s reluctance and Nathaniel’s unyielding commands, the delicate balance of power between the Dominant and his submissive threatens to shift. And as the underlying tension and desire between them heats up, so does the struggle to keep everything they value from falling apart …"

My Thoughts:

When I heard we were getting more to Abby and Nathaniel’s story I was so excited. But then I got worried. If we are getting another book, that means that we are getting some more trouble and I was nervous for them. I didn’t want to see them in pain. But in the end I am so happy we got this book, because it was a great addition to the series.

I love Abby and Nathaniel together. Their dynamic and their chemistry is off the charts. They work well together and have built this great life. I really liked seeing into their happily ever after. But just like anything in life, the happily ever after isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen without work. Abby and Nathaniel have to work at their relationship and balance their marriage with their D/s relationship. I liked seeing the dynamics and how those dynamics were stretched to the breaking point.

In The Enticement, we see Abby pushed outside her comfort zone and the same held true for me. While Nathaniel is pushing Abby, he is also pushing the reader. I loved that I could feel these things alongside Abby. I’m not going to lie and say I was completely on board with everything Nathaniel did, because I wasn’t (and I want to clarify he never hurt her or did anything Abby was not okay with). He pushed her limits and sometimes as a reader I wanted to push back. The difference is while Abby might initially balk or want to push back, in the end she didn’t because she didn’t want to. Nathaniel knows Abby and he knows just how far to go and knows what will work for them. Also, they communicate so well and I love that. They have their arguments but in the end they always come back to each other and discuss what they are feeling and what they want. I know for a fact I would never be able to deal with Nathaniel but that is the beauty of getting lost in a book, I don’t have to but Abby does and for Abby it works.

I also LOVED seeing Daniel and Julie again (from Seduced By Fire). Those two are my favorite and I didn’t realize how much I missed them. It was also great seeing Jeff again and I cannot wait for The Collar now! I’m excited for his and Dena’s story and I’m hoping to get some more Daniel and Julie time.

All in all, The Enticement is a great read and the steam is off the charts. It’s the perfect blend of romance, heart, steam, and it is a fantastic time.

  2. Oh, I haven't heard of this book/series before. Haha, yeah, Nathaniel doesn't sound like my kind of guy, but you're right, the girl has to deal w/him, not us. Too funny. This sounds fun though.

  4. I hear ya girl. It's always nerve wracking when a couple gets another book because you're like NO DON'T HURT THEM! LOL. I'm glad to see that they communicated, even with him pushing her. That's always a plus in my book that you don't get all this drama because of miscommunication, or lack thereof. I'm so glad you enjoyed this one T!

  5. There's only a handful of erotic series I follow. When I see D/s in the blurb I back away immediately. I need to stretch my comfort zone again...

  7. I think I'm going to have to break down and check out this series, Teresa. I know you've loved it. And I like having my boundaries pushed even if I'd push back in real life...it's okay in fiction. ;)
