All she wanted was to make other people's lives better. All they did was make her life worse.
A chance meeting was all it took and she was introduced to a different way of life. When it came to society's way or the highway, she had never considered what might come of choosing the highway.
This is the journey of a woman into sexual enlightenment. Follow her transition from vanilla to 'the scene' - it is a highly erotic journey and depicts a path that countless women have traveled down in the past and countless more wish they had done so. Maybe now is their chance to follow Susan as we discover her own passionate, submissive journey into the freedom she was so hungry to find.
The Submissive Heart books were a difficult series of installments to write reviews for because they all flow together in a serial like one long story from beginning to end.
The author visualized the four books: The Companion, The Reluctant Leader, From the Cradle, To the Grave as a film that was eventually translated into a book.
So this is how I will write my review because it gathers together my view on the books as a whole.
The Submissive Heart series is definitely erotic however this isn't your typical Erotica either. Its not written on the fantasy sweet romance side of Erotica most readers find on the shelves these days written by authors with no concept of what true Erotica really is.
The Submissive Heart series takes an honest realistic look at what true BDSM couples and persons in their communities really have to take into account when taking on partners and making arrangements for any involvements that they have.
Its not sexy, its not romantic, its real, its honest and it really brings to the foreground what it takes. From an understanding of who does what, who handles what. From your physical encounters, emotional stand points, to financial obligations and understanding how to balance your sexual interests with your personal ones.
I really liked that it wasn't all sexy, pretty or frilly. The people were real, they were flawed, they had genuine struggles, they were every day people like those out in the real world.
Granted the books could really use some development and editing but I really respected that the author had the mind to relate to real people and take honest accountability for both the risks and pleasures involved in such relationships.
The books are entertaining but they are also informative.
Keep in mind the books are more Fiction than Romance for the Erotic Romance readers out there but its nothing like the ridiculous Fifty Shades of Grey series that confuses ignorance and abuse with fetish.
