When Taylor Little, who styles himself “Dom Seven,” is unwillingly taken into custody by the Cadre, he is put between a rock and a hard place. Either he will go to jail for his abuses against the local BDSM community, or he will accept retraining from the bottom up, learning to be a slave before he ever lays a flogger on another human being again.

In this tale of redemption, Taylor must face his demons as he learns to accept his status with mouth, mind, and heart.

WARNING: This story contains scenes of sexual intimacy and BDSM.

My View:

I am really torn with how I feel about this story.

If you are looking for something with no romance this may be for you.

If you are looking for something with an MC who is really quite difficult to like then this may be for you.

If you are looking for something a bit different then this may be for you.

For me personally, and reading for me is a personal thing, I need to make a connection with some part of the story and it just didn’t happen for me here. The writing is on point, the BDSM elements were well thought out but you have to suspend your overall belief of reality for the storyline to work. Would it really be that easy to remove someone from their life to ‘correct’ them – this raised all sorts of flags for me and left me uncomfortable. Just who did the Cadre think they were? Then there is Taylor himself or Dom Seven as he likes to be known. He isn’t a nice person, although he does redeem himself towards the end, but I just didn’t like him. Caraway is a new author to me and definitely an author I will read again.
