New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me is back with a scorching new romance—tenth in the Submissive series.
Lynne has not wanted for anything since she began working as Nathaniel and Abby's nanny—until the night they invite her to a group BDSM meeting. The abrupt breakup she had with her last Dom made her turn her back on the lifestyle, but now she’s ready to dive back in. When she starts chatting on online BDSM message boards, she’s shocked to discover Simon, her former Dom, is a frequent poster—and even more shocked at herself when she creates a secret identity and strikes up a conversation.
After messaging with a mysterious submissive online, Simon forms an immediate connection. Lynne and Simon's D/s relationship grows in intensity, but can their relationship survive after the truth is exposed, and Lynne's identity is laid bare?
INCLUDES A BONUS NOVELLA
Me's 10th Submissive erotic novel (after The Exposure) is a sensual, no-holds-barred look at BDSM. Sadistic dominant Simon Neal has always loved beautiful submissive Lynne Ryder, but he pushed her away, believing she was too good for him. To make her leave, he suggested she wasn't a true submissive and broke her heart. Years later, she's ready to show Simon that they belong together. Lynne pretends to be someone else online, seducing Simon while allowing herself to fall in love with him again. When Simon realizes that Lynne has kept her true identity secret, he's furious, but he can't resist the opportunity to fix his past mistakes. Me expertly draws readers into her seductive world, where pain is pleasure and love never ends. The novel is erotic, heartbreaking, and vividly real.

Deliciously hot and so so wickedly sinful.
Beautiful story of strength, courage and finding that "one". I have never been disappointed with the Author... I love how she writes.
The Flirtation (The Submissive Series Book 10) written by Tara Sue Me
Reading this series is like coming home. I love how Tara Sue Me intertwines characters from earlier in the series enough to remind you of how much you loved them, but not too much that you lose focus on the main characters you are currently reading about. However you can never get enough of Nathaniel and Abby when they are mentioned.
Lynne aka Faye and Simon had an unresolved breakup. They both had regrets about the way things ended and hadn't forgot about one another. Both had decided they weren't what the other needed...or so they thought. Toss in a jealous ex who liked to cause trouble for others and was very manipulative and resentful.
“She didn’t want to see him give someone else what he wouldn’t give her.”
In a BDSM relationship the core of it needed to be based on trust and honesty. Both Lynne and Simon failed at that and once it was revealed they weren't sure they'd ever get to a place of complete trust again. Is it worth trying to build a relationship that is already doomed before it's started? If they tried again and couldn't get past the dishonesty would they recover from walking away from one another again? They have friends in common...would it be awkward to be around one another or would they continue avoiding each other?
A sexy delve into secrets, desires and second chances! I wasn't drawn as deep into these characters as some in the past of The Submissive Series because a good bit of their interactions throughout the book occurred on-line. It was still a steamy read, and in the end I enjoyed their connection and how their story played out, it just wasn't quite as erotically stimulating as some. Solid characters, a believable plot, and great to see some of our favorites from the previous books again!
Lynne Ryder set her interest in the BDSM lifestyle aside after an unexpected break-up from her previous Dom. Because of things that happened, she questions her devotion to the life and if she even wants to try her hand at it again. She decides to take the plunge softly and starts checking in and chatting a little on on-line message boards. She's shocked when she comes across her ex on the site!
Simon Neal is unfulfilled with his life right now. His fellow Doms are settling down and enjoying their submissives, and he's still single and not finding what he's looking for. When he strikes up a conversation with a mysterious poster on the Forum, he has no idea it's his ex under a fake name. They really seem to have a connection and continue to meet up and chat over time. When it all comes to light that it's been Lynne this whole time, will he be able to overcome his anger and just be happy to be reconnected?
