Series – Mistress Managed #2
Rating – 5 out of 5
Genre – Erotica
Blurb – In Book-Two of B.J. Frazier’s three-book tale of a high-powered lawyer’s trip into her sexual dark side, Jeneca Avery’s role of commanding mistress to the handsome and compelling Keegan is becoming something more than playing.
Something that ensures she is finding less and less interest in playing with her other boy-toys.
Her growing fascination with her new sub is returned by the once dominant Keegan as he feels himself falling more and more under her power as the two begin the gradual transition into a relationship, but they have a lot to learn about each other and, while role-playing can take the edge from less mainstream desires…
Nothing stays the same forever!
Review – I absolutely loved the first book in this series and, if anything, I enjoyed book two even more! I will try not to include any spoilers in this review, but I can’t promise that I won’t give away spoilers from the first book, so please read with caution if you haven’t read book one yet!
This book continues Jeneca’s story as a new domme learning the ropes (pun entirely intended!) with boy-toys that she meets online. However, in book two, Jeneca begins to lose interest in all her boy-toys except one – Keegan, the dominant man looking for a taste of submission that Jeneca first meets in book one. I really enjoyed reading about Jeneca’s progression in this book. In book one, she clings to her need for control in a fearful way, almost as if she is afraid that the world will fall apart if she releases control of the smallest thing. She uses her dominance as a way to keep a huge, impenetrable brick wall around herself to stop any emotions being involved, in the hopes that she will not be hurt again by another man. But in book two, the reader sees Jeneca begin to relax a little as she gets closer to Keegan. In lots of different ways throughout the book we see her starting to relax her grip in certain areas and realising that she can still be a good Mistress to Keegan while not being in control of EVERY little detail in her life. It is good to see her opening up more, even if she is still trying her best to resist intimacy at the moment – but it seems to be happening whether she wants it to or not. I won’t lie, I am hoping that the next step in Jeneca’s journey will see her opening up to the idea of submitting to Keegan. Not because I doubt her abilities as a domme, but because I think it will be really good for her to let go of control for a while, even if she only tries it once, just so that she can learn that the world really won’t end if she is not in complete control. Plus, she has even admitted to wanting to submit to him. You have NO idea how hard I am hoping that she might submit to him in book three, and I can’t wait to read it to find out!
The scenes between Jeneca and Keegan are incredibly hot and well-written, and I absolutely LOVED the power play between the two of them as Keegan struggles to fight his more dominant side while he submits to Jeneca. I think I would have liked to see more from Keegan’s point of view throughout the book, to see how he was adjusting to being submissive over time though. For me, that was the one thing missing in this book. I would have loved to get into his head a bit more. But I enjoyed seeing his efforts to adjust as they are spending more time together and I love the chemistry between these two.
In the background, there is an intriguing plot involving a medical negligence case that Jeneca is working on in her job as a lawyer. But, the twist is that the man she is defending just happens to work for the mafia. The case is not going as planned and this particular plot line seems to be building, adding in a satisfying dose of mystery as a background story to all the kink and the relationship between Jeneca and Keegan. I am seriously looking forward to reading the final book in the series to find out how this plot line concludes, and to see if Jeneca and Keegan get their happy ever after! I really can’t recommend this series enough!
