Book Review- The Submission of Alastair Ingram

Ok.... So I started this book thinking... This will probably just be another one of those 50 Shades of Grey wanna be's.... I was wrong!!! Kelli Maine twists the typical Dom/Submissive story roles into a love story that has the reader hoping, begging, and praying for the characters to get their happy endings!

I love how Alastair is this cocky, arrogant ass movie star that really has this soft side to him. He and Bethany have an immediate connection that had me rooting for romance at the first drop of hot wax! I was entranced with Black Betty and what made her "Black Betty." Had she been burned one too many times by a Dom and felt the need to hide behind her whips and chains? Was she afraid to let her heart go and give it away to another person? Was her heart black from previous heartache or was it her soul that had turned black from years of a "rough" lifestyle????? Black Betty, AKA Bethany, suckered me in right from the beginning. I wanted her to let Black Betty die and Bethany finally get the happiness that I felt she deserved. 

Alastair was another story. At first I thought how deep can this plot really go with a movie star as the bad boy? Aren't all actors wanna be bad boys that will do anything for their next role? I once again misjudged Kelli Maine's ability to connect the reader to her characters. I admired Alastair for the clean slate, non-judge mental, open mindedness that he showed Black Betty. He was suffering from his own demons of trying to fit in Hollywood and not be just another pretty face. What a match made in heaven with these two! My favorite quote from this book was "Two Dom's don't make a right." I thought that was hilarious and love that humor and light hearted word play was utilized in this story where it could have been a supremely dark book diving into the lifestyles of Submissive's and Dom's. 

Great job Kelli Maine at making me a believer that not all BDSM books are wanna be 50's. ;) I give this novella 4 stars and can't wait for the next one to be released!!

 If you don't know the history of this novella, it's the first in a series and was started on where the author posts an episode every Thursday. A new series will begin the first Thursday in March.
Movie star Alistair Ingram strolled into Dolls &am Doms private men's club in Las Vegas for his bachelor party and limped out with a torn shirt, red welts covering his chest and a broken engagement splashed all over the pages of every celebrity magazine in the country.

A session with club Dominatrix, Black Betty, will do that to a man.

With Alistair's manager breathing down his neck and Black Betty's abusive ex-husband alerted to where she's been hiding for the past ten years, there's only one thing to do:


And get the hell out of Las Vegas.

But the real ruse is on Alistair and Black Betty, because despite both of their best efforts, they've gotten under each other's skin. Can their explicit dance of domination and submission end in anything other than disaster?

THE SUBMISSION OF ALISTAIR INGRAM is the first in a novella series, where erotic tales from the Dolls & Doms private men’s club are told in weekly episodes.
