The Dominant is yet another book in the erotic/romance genre. What makes this one different is that it is written from the perspective of the male protagonist. I haven't read the Submissive, so the storyline was new to me and I have to say that I enjoyed reading it. There were some aspects of the story that relied on the reader having read the Submissive to fully understand (e.g., Nathaniel saving Abigail's mothers home) so it did not quite stand alone as a novel. The underlying secret waiting to be uncovered was a bit lame, as if Abby was going to leave Nathaniel because he had a long standing obsession about her. That aside, the erotic component was not over the top, the characters were endearing (especially the dog), and reading this book was a pleasant way to pass a few hours. Might just go read the Submissive now and see what I missed. Thank you to NetGalley who provided me with a free copy of the Dominant in return for an honest review.

am so angry at this book after all the love of submissive and reading the teaser for The Training, I get Dominant instead, I really tried gave it all I could then then threw it against the was, who gives a cares about a book they already read know what happens, if you wanted some perspective of Nathaniel, you should have found a way to do it in Submissive. What the heck did you put a teaser in a really good book (Submissive), that you didn't release. I have never hated a book more then Dominant, I have voracious appetite for book, I am going have add more space in my house for books, people tease me, don't bring up the new book with Jamie, she finished it in a day and a half and I am on chapter 4. I don't speed read, I love reading so much until my eyes get tired when I have a new book in my hands reading it. I really hate this book I hate the POV I hate knowing what is coming up next, you should have added some in the first book. I know what is coming next and hate that, like my Grandma said "don't tell the l want to see the baby", you teased that looked like a GOOD book and sent Nathaniel's POV, I don't care about the man as much as I do the women I read about, I can get lost in being the woman, can't get lost in a man's mind (been married 23 years), and have yet to understand their wishy washy thinking, or their pull the trigger and worry about later minds and frankly don't want to. HATED this book I want my money back and anyone asking me to review it is getting the same review as this.

I can't wait to continue this beautiful story Mind Reader By the end of the first chapter I was hooked on the story and relationship of Abigail and Nathaniel... The book is told in first person so we only get Abby's perspective of the relationship, but it's one that I found real and compelling... This is one of those books that I will read and re-read The Book Reading Gals I HIGHLY recommend The Submissive by Tara Sue Me. It's so worth it. This book crackles with sexual lightning right from the beginning... The Submissive has exceeded all my expectations. It has heart and the characters are majorly flawed in a beautiful way.
