My Review of Mine by Tanya Chris – An erotic FemmeDom/FemDom Story
When I read my first story by this author, probably about six months ago, I developed a significant book hangover. Like the earlier story, this one is also wonderfully complicated and intense.
Although Mine is perhaps contemporary romance/erotic romance/kinky romance, the main characters are so deep, multi-layered that they grab you and don’t let go. It feels a bit like psychological suspense. Amanda is a strong female, who needs to be in charge, a domme in every sense of the word. She is tall, physically strong and controlling and doesn’t really expect to find what she needs in her new town, or so it seems. Derek, who she knows from the climbing gym is not even a possibility. What she doesn’t know is that Derek has been watching her and interested, attracted, perhaps even inflamed by her and has been for a couple of years.
Amanda needs to be in charge and Derek, well, Derek needs Amanda.
This author takes complex individuals, with emotional pain and shows a bit of why they need what they need and how they find comfort in unusual ways, a hurt/pain/comfort dynamic perhaps. Not at all what I was expecting. Yes, intense. Yes, sexy. Yes, I want much more. 4.5 *
Amanda’s not loving life in her new hometown. Her roommate is a weepy hermit, the rock climbing gym is substandard, and she hasn’t whipped anyone in months. So when an odd encounter leads her to believe that Derek—the good-looking, sweet-tempered climber every woman wants but no woman gets—is a submissive, she’s ready to take control and give him a night to remember.
There’s something special about Amanda, something that’s been calling to Derek ever since he met her, even if he doesn’t understand what it is. He’s yearning to give her everything she needs until he finds out that what she needs is for him to submit. Derek is strong, smart, and well-adjusted. Why would he get down on his knees for a woman? And why is he just now realizing that that’s what he’s always wanted to do?
Derek may be new to BDSM, but Amanda’s new to relationships. Neither one of them knows whether a Domme with a grudge against the world and a man who’s surprised to learn he’s a submissive can make love work, but they both know what they want: someone to call Mine.
MINE is a full-length standalone M/F femdom story with a happy ending. (Goodreads)
