It was supposed to be a perfect two weeks for MacKensie. She does a house exchange with Alex in Seattle and she can get a head start on getting a job far from her former town, a place where her past bit her on the ass and chased her away. What she doesn’t expect is one locked door to open a world that will heal her heart and show her that love is more than spankings. It’s about trust as well. THE DOM’S DUNGEON is one hot, well written story and I warn you, get the hanky ready because you are going to cry as well as sigh over MacKensie and Alex’s relationship. Ms. Sinclair is a gifted storyteller who knows how to create an emotional yet highly charged story for the reader to devour. I love the dynamics of an emotionally stunted MacKensie and the strong Dom, Alex. The scenes between them had me squirming one minute and the next sighing as trust begins to build between them. This is an author who really gets into her character’s heads and shows the reader their souls. Within minutes of opening THE DOM’S DUNGEON, I was swept away and when I finally closed the last page, it was with a satisfied smile on my face. Meet MacKensie, a vet who wants a change. She decides to do a house swap with a man named Alex in Seattle and scope out the jobs there while she vacations for two weeks. What she finds is a locked door that opens her eyes to the world of D/s & BDSM. Alex was looking forward to trading houses with MacKensie but a fight at the airport has him missing his plane and he heads home to find that MacKensie is snooping in his dungeon. What happens next will change both their lives and they will find a love that will heal a broken heart. All I have to say is-Where can I find an Alex of my own? This guy is hot-hot-hot and he finds himself drawn to MacKensie in a way that startles him. As these two become more involved in the world of BDSM, MacKensie slowly learns to trust Alex and in the process, herself as well. Some wonderful secondary characters pop up and keep the story flowing nicely. I would love to see more stories around Seattle and Alex’s friends. THE DOM’S DUNGEON is a well written story that will start off slowly and then simmer until it overloads your senses. I highly recommend either keeping a bucket of ice or your significant other nearby as you will get a tad hot and bothered. Ms. Sinclair is fast becoming my favorite author to read lately. I do have to mention, this story may have some things mentioned that you may find objectionable. THE DOM’S DUNGEON is one emotional and highly sensual ride from start to finish. If you enjoy a hot, erotic story set in the BDSM culture, then run to grab Cherise Sinclair’s THE DOM’S DUNGEON. I look forward to more wonderful stories from this author in the future. THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW.
