Red & Her Big Bad Dom — From meek geek to Big Bad Wolf, let this Dom devour you
Laura Roberts on November 19, 2014
The second book in the Once Upon a Dom series, Red and Her Big Bad Dom gets spicier than the previous installment, and I was hooked from the start. Learning more about Jamie’s best friend Lucy – who’s got a wild streak a mile wide and a rule against dating “geeks” – is guaranteed to get you hot and bothered. Especially since the very geek she’s trying to avoid is the Wolf that she wants to devour her! I’m not sure how anyone can resist a man who wears pants with both the crotch and the ass cut out (wait, aren’t those normally referred to as “chaps”?), but the transformation from meek geek to sexy, bossy Dom definitely suits Graham. I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of his day job and presumed role in the bedroom with the domineering dude he became in the bedroom.
And did I mention he’s all about pleasing his lady love? He notes that like most submissives, he knows Lucy truly controls all of their scenes, which is another big part of why I love this series. Instead of treating BDSM like just another man-controls-woman-for-his-pleasure encounter, author Sydney St. Claire really gets it that it’s always a matter of give and take, of dominance and submission wrestling for control, even as the Dom is ostensibly the one wielding the power.
