Subordination by Katie Ashley

book blurb

When Sophie Jameson first became a domme at Club 1740, it was more out of financial necessity than it was for personal pleasure and sexual exploration. But over the years as she rocked her leather corsets and boots while wielding every crop and flogger imaginable, she grew to love the thrill and adulation that her clients brought her. But all along, her path in life and her heart was with a different profession—one she was planning to embark on at the summer’s end.

And then he changed everything. Tall, dark, impossibly built—William was the complete opposite of whatever image a male sub conjured up. After all the subs, Sophie finally felt true lust and desire. Although he was the proud stallion who needed breaking, he became the one to make her break all her rules and let down all her walls.

But it was just supposed to be for that one night, but an accidental encounter days later outside Club 1740’s protected walls had the two seeing each other in a different light—as simply Sophie and William, not Domme and sub. While they should have parted ways, they couldn’t. While they should never have gone back to her place, they did.

And that simple mistake has a serious price for both of them.


I loved this book! It was such a twist on the BDSM genre for me. In most of the books I’ve read in this genre there is a Dom but in this book we have a Domme.

Sophie worked in Club 1740 for several years while she was in college and it not only paid for her education but the money she earned helped her sick father and little brother. She was a Domme but not a typical one. She didn’t participate only provided a service for her clients. But now she’s off to her new teaching job and back to her family.

We meet up with her on her last night of employment. Sophie had no idea that when she decided to have a little fun with an unscheduled client that her entire life would change.

William is a strong, handsome and incredibly built man that likes to dabble in some BDSM ever now and again. He is immediately attracted to Sophie and asks to see her again but she’s done with Club 1740 and everyone attached to it. Until of course she happens to run into him the next day.

That’s when their love affair begins even though walking away would’ve been better for both of them. Sophie’s gut tells her that she should just let him go but her heart is already attached. William feels it too and knows that he can’t let her go.

Katie does an amazing job with this book. I couldn’t stop reading it. There’s some angst in this book and a real bitch in this book that will make you want to reach in and hurt her. I saw it coming and still I found myself yelling at my Kindle. Highly recommended for those that love BDSM, a big of angst and some teacher loving.
