Review: Giving an Inch

Giving an Inch (The Professor's Rule #1) - Heidi Belleau, Amelia C. Gormley

This short story is a sequel to another book I haven't read, but that wasn't a problem. The story opens two years after James broke up with his Dom, Carson, because he felt too vulnerable in the relationship, too ready to do anything at all for Carson's approval. When he accidentally texts a picture of himself trying on outfits to Carson instead of to his sister, he finds himself getting sucked back into Carson's games.

 

This surprised me in a couple of good ways. One is that it's got a Dom who isn't completely invincible and made mistakes with his sub, something I never see. (Of course, I mostly read romance or erotic romance, and this is erotica with just a tinge of romance.) Another is that there's a character who seemed to be mainly a prop... and James recognizes that and wants to change it.

 

It wasn't exactly my cup of tea, but I did enjoy those fresh qualities. And the domination via text was fun.
