Story Overview:
1 Sexy Switch + 1 Nerdy Newbie = A Master Class in Seduction

After several years as a submissive, psychology lecturer Beth is eager to experience being on the other end of the whip for a change. When she meets sweet but socially awkward Ed at a party, it’s obvious the aerospace engineer is interested—and obvious he’s way too vanilla.

When tracking down a friend lands him in a BDSM club, Ed’s eyes are opened to a whole other world—and a whole other side of Beth. Then Beth’s former Master shows up, and Ed agrees to play along as her sub in exchange for a real date. The biggest surprise of the evening? How much he enjoys letting her take control…

Beth’s ex makes it clear he wants her back, but she needs more from a relationship than he can offer—and not just the freedom to explore her switch side. At first Ed is just an enthusiastic student. But the more she gets to know him, in and out of the bedroom, the more Beth wonders if he’s everything she desires…
My Review:
Flat out, this has just been a fun series. Big Bang Theory meets BDSM erotica....and it's been just as fun and entertaining and smexy as you would think if you meshed those two worlds. 

I enjoyed this one because Ed is just such a normal guy...no six-pack abs for this hero, but he has chemistry with Beth because she sees him for who he really is and is intrigued. She had the perfect physical guy in her former boyfriend and Dom who was all about appearances. But now she wants something more fun, more real. I think it's a GREAT moral to the story and certainly not one you would expect from this erotica series. 

I loved it. A perfect end to the trilogy which I have thoroughly enjoyed. If you like a bit of kink with a bit of geek, start reading this series now. So much fun!
