With everything she cared about gone, Dominatrix Macie Fitzgerald has built a new life in service to those in need. A special kind of need. But when she sees Jarrod’s name on the list of applicants to her next training session, she isn’t sure she can handle it.

Everything has been too easy for Jarrod Bancroft—rich parents, football star, law degree, high powered job, women by the score. He wants whatever Stonybrook Academy can dish out, much as it scares the hell out of him. Can he handle the pain, the humiliation, the unending deprivation that Madam requires? And why does her voice sound familiar?

Unfortunately for Macie, the years that have passed since Jarrod was her student have done nothing but make him more magnificent in every way. She faces her biggest challenge as she struggles to fulfill her professional obligation to give Jarrod what he wants. What he needs.





This book in my opinion was easy to like. The two main characters I could relate too. The concept of the story was believable and wasn't way out there.  But there are a few things I would have liked more information on. One is why was the death of Sam what made Macie open the academy? I understand loving a person and having it make you go crazy with grief but his death destroyed her and that leaves me to asking the question why? More background information on her relationship with Sam could've answered these questions.

Macie seems to have troubles of her own and she doesn't seem happy. She seems to be missing a part of herself. That could be because she is lonely with out her true love Sam. When she wants relief she has one of her employers put her through some BDSM of her own. She knew Jerrod when she read about him on his application to the Academy. She taught him when he was in high school. Things can change when you are out of high school, she needs to see what makes Jarrod tick. But can she ignore the feelings she starts having for him while he is in training? Can he let him go when he graduates?

Jarrod comes from a family that doesn't love him. He has tried everything to gain his fathers approval and he is even working for his father. I think he goes to the Academy to find his inner self and what he finds is so much more. He recognizes Macie from his high school days and he had a huge crush on her then and now his feelings come back full force. Oh how he wants her and to make her his for good. But can he survive the training she is going to dish out?

This story gives an outsider a look inside of the world of BDSM. BDSM is not perceived as what is normal. But to the ones who live this life style it is real and it is a way of life. This story will open the eyes of the curious ones in the "real world" per say. This story is not for the faint of heart. I can't wait to read more from this author. You want an erotic story with BDSM thrown into the mix? This is the story for you. Give it a read and prepare for a journey of a different kind.
