Review by: Fern
With a long and bitter divorce behind her, Julia Stone is barely back on her feet when she's suddenly swept off them again by a hot young executive with a healthy appetite for sexual dominance. But after years of emotional submission to a controlling ex, will she choose to submit?
Workaholic Dalton Fairchild has slaved night and day to build his own computer technology company. All work and no play makes Dalton a boring boy. However, a chance encounter with Julia challenges the dom in him, and he must convince her that, though she's At His Command, submission is the ultimate power.
“Now there’s a cougar, if I ever wanted to do one.” This is the first sentence of At His Command, and sets the tone of the captivatingly sultry tale about finding love, acceptance, and trust where you least expect it.
While the cougar element is present, the BDSM theme is what will have you to wriggling and squirming in your seat. Falling for an older woman has its own set of obstacles. But falling for an older woman as a dom creates an entirely new playing field. Dalton knows he has to take it slow with Julia, but realizes that full disclosure about his BDSM lifestyle, from the start, is absolutely essential for their relationship to stand a chance.
Then, there is the flipside of the coin.
How will an older woman that has been through the agony of losing control to a demeaning husband respond when a younger man demands to be in control? The answer is riveting, because as much as Dalton requires submission, it is Julia that holds the key to their future. Without her complete consent and compliance, a relationship will remain impossible. She has to decide the terms. In our out? Take a chance, or possibly regret turning away from what could ultimately bring true happiness?
Felicia Forella has a beautiful writing style, and will engage your attention from the start. Her characters are well developed, and the amount of time devoted to each is just right for the length of the story. The material is tightly written, without any lapses or distractions along the way. And boy-oh-boy, is it hot, hot, hot! I soared through At His Command like a mouth-watering pint of Hagen-Dazs ice cream, and licked my spoon contentedly after.
If you’ve not read At His Command, put it on your TBR pile for sure. This is a story you won’t want to miss.
