PUBLISHER: Gemma James
GENRE: Dark Erotica
SOURCE: Borrowed
LINKS: Goodreads

Kayla Sutton finds out the hard way that Gage Channing’s dominance doesn’t end once she leaves the confines of his basement. His rules dictate her days and nights, his watchful eye keeps her in line at work, and the memories of her weekend with him, spent under his absolute control and his firm hand, keeps her on her toes. Having been blackmailed into submitting to him, Kayla doesn’t fully understand what it means to relinquish control of her body and free will, and she doesn’t understand how a man who derives pleasure in whipping and humiliating her is capable of awakening the desire she hadn’t known existed. As her daughter’s life hangs in the balance, Kayla must dig deep to find the strength to fully submit, to travel down the path of pain and pleasure. But when her past catches up to her, prompting a free fall into forbidden territory with a man she once fiercely loved, she knows her only recourse is to come clean about her transgression to her Master and beg his forgiveness . . . only she never imagined he’d have such a horrifying punishment awaiting her, or that his jealousy would send her life into a further tailspin.
NOTE TO READERS: ENSLAVED is a novella with a BDSM edge and contains material that is only suitable for adult readers. If dark and edgy erotic fiction isn’t your kind of read, you might not enjoy this story. Part two of a three-part series. These stories are not stand alone reads. For a better reading experience, I recommend beginning with ULTIMATUM, the first book in the DEVIL’S KISS series. Approximately 19,000 words.


Wouldn't Ian be the right choice? Probably the easiest, but in the Dark Erotica world is the Master who compels you the most, not who's classified as boyfriend material. So, sorry Ian, as I see it Gage is the only possible winner here. There is still a lot to be revealed and we can't completely understand the possessive Mr. Channing yet, but it all started making more sense and what came towards the end was a very unexpected turn of events! And just when Gage had showed a tiny bit of kindness... Almost... I'm pretty sure it was there at some point... It was there, wasn't it? Well, one thing is for sure, the halo of mystery around him drives me crazy and at the same time intensifies my crave for him.

Again, with just a novelette Gemma James succeeds in drawing the reader into a very enthralling story. I can't seriously wait to read "Retribution", the third and final instalment!
