Jenna Carter opened Club Esoteria, never dreaming it would become the hottest sex club in the state. When her slave/mate Antony receives orders for an extended overseas tour of duty with the Coast Guard, he decides to bring a new member into their little family.
Gentry Michaels had never had good luck with women because he wanted the same thing they did: a stronger, more dominant partner to tell him what to do. When Antony invites him to test drive life as a submissive, Gentry finds he can’t say no.
During an intense weekend of BDSM fun and games, Gentry and Jenna decide that Antony had the right idea in bringing the three of them together. But when the weekend is over and real life intrudes, will Gentry be able to give up his vanilla life for one of Minding Mistress?
“Minding Mistress” was not what I was expecting. Instead of a novella that was focused mainly on BDSM and sex, I found a story that was rich with emotion and characterization.
The characters were amazingly crafted by Ms. McKenzie. They are realistic and flawed, trying to fill the holes in their lives. The relationship between Anthony, Gentry, and Jenna flows like magic, engaging the reader and pulling us along until the happily ever after.
Though I was impressed with the characters, the author’s knowledge of the BDSM scene and use of it as the background to the story was what caught my attention. We learn right along with Gentry about the expectations and responsibilities of the sub in the loving environment created by Ms. McKenzie. I learned quite a bit and it made the sex scenes even hotter.
Overall, I was very pleased with “Minding Mistress” and hope to read more work from this author in the future.
