The Accidental Submissive (The Mansion, #1)by Leah J. Michaels
Published July 17, 2013
What’s a girl to do when fate hands her a look into her darkest fantasies? Grab on with both hands, both cuffed hands. Karen McGuven’s dangerously curious nature has gotten her into trouble before, but this time she’s hit the mother lode. Kneeling on the auction block she hears the gavel hit and SOLD just as the blood drains from her head. What has she gotten herself into now?
When Steven Edwards looks up and sees an angel kneeling on his auction block, he knows something’s wrong. Because the angel on her knees isn’t the pain kitten the auctioneer is selling. When he rescues her from a sadist, he can’t help but want to keep her for himself.
When she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, and possibly hunted by the Russian mob, he takes her under his protection. Keeping her close to keep her safe, he doesn’t even mind as she stumbles into his heart.
Slowly walking to the end of the catwalk she did the first thing that came to mind. Going down on her knees she put her ass on her heels, squared her shoulders, looked at the floor, and placed her hands on her thighs, palms up.That was when she realized the bidding had started. She heard the numbers suddenly slow and her heart sunk.
She done the wrong things. Oh god, what if no one bought her? And just finished that though, the bidding exploded and she couldn't keep track of the numbers as they were batted back and forth over her head.
This was my first time reading a book by Leah Michaels. It is a introduction to the BDSM lifestyle for Karen as she was sold. She went on a business errand and ended up in a fantasy of a life time and took me with her. She did a good job portraying the characters of Karen/ Kitten. Steven or as I want to call him Sir she characterized him as a gentle man who wanted to show Karen the best part of BDSM as he could. He wanted her to fall in love with his world and protect her at the same time. Leah opened up some things about Sirs life I hope she continues with in the next book. I will be reading that !
This book is not intended for a YA reader it has few sex scene but not where it takes over the book.
