Series: Doms of Genesis #1
Available: Barnes & Noble / Amazon / ARe
Haunted for years by dreams of a savage, amber eyed Dominant with lips so enticing my soul ached in frustration and lust. None of the Dominants at Genesis, my local BDSM club ever stirred me in such blistering ways. While I tried to fill my submissive desires vicariously through interactions at the club, I attempted to convince myself it was enough. But it wasn’t. My dream Dom made certain I hungered for more.
Forced beyond what I could bear, my passion and frustration exploded. I threw in the towel, determined to stop chasing a dream and gave up completely on finding submissive surrender. But fate intervened when two gunshots split the night. Forced to confront my desires and insecurities, I was shocked to realize that my dreams may have held a deeper meaning. Were they compelling me to finally embrace my submission?
Embracing my Submission left me at times confused and a little angry at our sub Julianna/Emerald, but as I read more, I slowly came to understand.
Julianna or Emerald as she’s known in the BDSM club Genesis is a submissive in training. With her best friend Daddy Drake has her protector/mentor, she is “slowly” learning the ways to be the perfect sub. BUT, after 4 years of not finding a Dom for herself, Julianna is becoming frustrated….
Now the main thing I did not like was how Julianna expected to be the “perfect” submissive when she wouldn't let go of her issues…it was clearly holding her back (as everyone kept pointing out to her) and she just couldn't see it or listen. It was frustrating to keep reading the self loathing of herself. But we all go through it when we are questioning our self worth and when things aren't exactly going as we think they should.
What I loved most about the story was how Jenna brought everything together because like I said I was a bit confused..well maybe not confused, but I didn't understand the dreams that Julianna kept having. But as I read on, it became so clear. I was like “duh” Sharonda…lols. I also liked how she brought Mika into the story..there was that element of mystery to him as being the owner of Genesis.
Anyways, what I gathered from this read, was this. I felt that it was about two people learning how to overcome their painful pasts and move forward towards their futures with each other.
Jenna Jacob did a fantastic job here and her characters were just a wonderful mix of all kinds of sexy, hot , and very lovable. Oooo…ooo Mika! Mika! If I was Juli, I probably would have been a little obsessive too…lols. The world building was strong as well...despite some of my confusion, but I loved the paranormal feel to the story, I thought it fit perfectly.
Bottom line, Embracing my Submission was a sinful combination of erotic romance and mystery all rolled into one kinky little story. Good think I like kinky *weg*
oh damn!..this one had my heart pumping and some other thing too....

With four grown children she finally has time to paint pictures of her twisted mind, with words. Outgoing with a sassy sense of humor, she’s never once been accused of being shy or introverted. With nearly twenty years of experience in the dynamics of the BDSM lifestyle, she strives to portray Dominance and submission with a passionate and comprehensive voice
