Evanston Library Book Review: ‘The Submissive’ by Tara Sue Me

 S&M is the new vanilla.  Since the Fifty Shades explosion, every romance/erotica novel features some sort of BDSM and I’m over it.  The Submissive is the opener in a trilogy about Abby and her master Nathaniel.  But, of course, they decide that they mean more to each other than just sex when he pushes the limit and she leaves.  Book one is written by Abby; Nathaniel writes book two.  But it’s like reading the same book twice, without saucy insight.  I wanted the second, The Dominant, to be masculine and steamy.  It was not.  Nathaniel is even more girly and in love and smitten than Abby.  All in all, if you want a love story peppered with one spanking, then this is the book for you.  If you are looking to lose yourself in a steamy romance novel that you have to hide while reading, look elsewhere.  (Kim Hiltwein)
