“I was hooked by the roller-coaster of emotions I felt as I turned the pages.” ~Under the Covers

Julianna is a CPA by day, but a trained submissive known as Emerald by night.  She’s been hurt by a less than genuine Dom in the past and has longed to find her One, the Dom of her dreams.  For years, Julianna has been visited in her dreams by a mysterious Dom.  But he has yet to appear to her at her BDSM club, Genesis.  She’s grown frustrated and embarrassed that after years of looking, no one at Genesis has approached her with the intent to claim her as His own.   After a traumatic assault at the Club one night, Julianna is rescued by Mika, the veiled owner of Genesis.  She’s shocked to realize the Mika IS the Dom of her dreams, her fantasy come true.  But Mika has ghosts of his own that make giving his heart to another slave beyond what he can handle.   Julianna wants nothing more than to submit to Mika with her heart, soul, and body.  But in becoming not just a sub but a slave, will she loose her very self in the process?

This was my first work by Jenna Jacob and I was hooked by the roller-coaster of emotions I felt as I turned the pages.   I happen to love first person perspectives and the deep emotional connections they allow me to create with the main character.  This was no exception.  Julianna is a complex.  Despite years in the lifestyle, she has reservations about her ability to handle certain aspects of Master/slave relationships.  I really loved the genuine feel I got from her as a character, her hesitancy and uncertainty.  She’s a bit of a brat which I found endearing.  She’s no tame submissive.  The traumatic experience leading up to Julianna and Mika’s first encounter was difficult to read and I applaud the author’s acknowledgement of real Doms versus predators in the BDSM world.  Mika is wonderful: a big, beautiful Dom with an equally large heart.  He’s not a pushover, but one of the more gentle Doms I’ve read and I felt that’s just what Julianna needed.   The sex between the two is soooo hot it requires alone time to read.  Julianna is insatiable and Mika knows how to give her what she needs while maintaining complete control.  I think the secondary characters added so much to the book.  Mika’s father is a Dom in his own right and just oozes sex.  The Doms and subs at the club are intriguing and I’d like to see sequels around them.    For me the best BDSM books really delve into the psychology of submission, packing a big emotional punch and this one made me cry!  I want a Mika of my own!

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.

Jennifer,
Since reading Cherise Sinclair’s Club Shadowlands series, I have a weakness for this genre. Love a well written and emotional story and your review convinced me to seek this book out.
Thanks for the post.
