Catherine O'Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX, to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can't for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is.
After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club. Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club's board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub - a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?
Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn't, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, uncollared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?
Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it's not in their contract?

I have not read the print edition of this book but I loved the story. The characters were very believable and I found myself invested in both Catherine and Jayden very early on. I thought I would love Jayden more than anyone else in this book but I found myself really caring for Catherine just as much. There were some scenes where I thought to myself that I would have loved more detail or wished that she would have delved into that scene a little more in depth. And likewise there were a few sex scenes where I though there was a bit too much detail. But none of it was too distracting or enough to change my opinion of the book. The BDSM aspect was very believable, well thought out and respectfully portrayed. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend who loves the genre.
I found the narrator's Irish accent believable, but I do have to say the voices she used for the male characters, especially Jayden, were distracting. I know it is difficult task for a person of the opposite sex, so I tried not to let it become too much of an issue for me, and I will say that it gets better in book 2.
