Erotic Romance Early Review: The Dom Project by Heloise Belleau and Solace Ames

The Dom Project by Heloise Belleau and Solace Ames

Synopsis from Goodreads
By day, Robin Lessing has a successful career as a university archivist. By night, she blogs about her less-than-successful search for Mr. Tall, Dark and Dominant. Living up to her handle "The Picky Submissive," she's on the verge of giving up and settling for vanilla with a side of fuzzy handcuffs when she discovers her best friend and colleague has a kinky side, too.

Sexy, tattooed techie John Sun is an experienced Dom who never lacks for playmates, male or female. If he can't satisfy Robin's cravings, maybe no one can—after all, he knows her better than anyone. So he offers to help her master the art of submission for one month.

Robin eagerly agrees to John's terms, even the pesky little rule forbidding any friendship-ruining sex. But rules are made to be broken, and once they begin their stimulating sessions, it's not long before she's ready to beg him for more—much more…

Release date: December 23rd 2013.

Don't expect anything dark or super steamy, peeps. Instead this is short and sweet and romantic. I loved how The Dom Project was about two close friends finally finding love with each other.



Both John and Robin were so adorable that sometimes I couldn't quite believe in John switching into his dominant mode and ordering Robin around. They were certainly an interesting couple as well. 

Robin, small and very self-assured librarian looking gal and John - all gorgeous limbs, tall, tattooed American Chinese work together in the university. While Robin unsuccessfully tries to find her perfect Dom because this is the type of relationship she craves, John has been into the lifestyle for years and kept it secret from Robin whom he always fancied but considered pretty straight.

When they discover that their interests align both are wary of losing their friendship if their other relationship fail, so John goes very slowly trying to help Robin with her fantasies while both become increasingly unsatisfied with the boundaries they set for each other. I don't have to tell you that when their boiling point is reached, it's all very satisfying.

There is also a side story as well where they both chase the collection of mysterious old pornographic photographs for the university which works with the main story nicely. Overall, a nice light read. Recommended as a bookish snack.

Ну так себе, хотя мило, кратко и легко написано. Довольно романтично и без особых страстей. Оба главных героя настолько очаровательны, что даже и не верится что оба активно живут стилем БДСМ.

Робин выглядит как хрупкая, сексуальная, строгая библиотекарша, а Джон - высокий, симпатичный американский китаец с парой потрясающих татуировок. Оба - друзья с колледжа и оба работают в том же самом университете. Он уже давно в БДСМ, но держит свои предпочтения в секрете, а Робин только этим заинтересовалась и пытается найти партнёра.

Когда оба узнают, что их интересы очень схожи, Джон, который давно положил глаз на Робин предлагает ей совместить приятное с полезным.. Однако оба боятся разрушить свою дружбу и настаивают на строгом конракте между ними. И Джон и Робин влюблены друг в друга, и ими же поставленные рамки доводят их до белого каления, но естественно всё разрешается к обоюдному удовлетворению.

Если хочется почитать что-то по теме, а под рукой больше ничего нет, то сойдёт. Как книжный перекус прямо.

BDSM is so in, but eh for me

I have to agree with Blodeuedd, I'm also a bit "meh" on BDSM books and it's the "it" thing these days it seems. But it does sounds like a fun, light, read... and of course where else one would find BDSM enthusiast but the library, lol? :) Nice review Karina!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
