Book Review for Subordination for Katie Ashley


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.

"Show me that you know the difference between fucking and making love."

I've never read a female Domme story, so this was a new venture for me....but the minute I saw her post a teaser for this book earlier this year, I knew I had to read it. I have read a number of Katie's stories and have always loved the flow and the progression. This story was no different....yet again, I was treated to a page turner of a different sorts. 

First and foremost: I loved William. However, it was very different for me to love a man that is a submissive. That is NOT something I generally like, but after getting to know him, I found that he was still very much a strong man. He was so "in charge", but he was a submissive, so it went against everything I understood/wanted/liked in a man. It was such a contradiction to me. Sophie was a very strong woman....she knew what she wanted and she went after it. She still had a soft side to her, but she was very to the point. However, seeing her say that she wasn't a Domme in her personal life, she certainly played the part really well outside the confines of the club. So, again, it was confusing for me, but I loved the dynamic between them. It was so different, but I think I got to learn right along with them. Exploring their relationship with them allowed me to have questions and formulate my own opinions. It was just so different than I am used to.

Having never read a 'professional domme' story (all have been lifestyle choices), this was almost awkward to read....ONLY because I wasn't too sure how she was supposed to act in her 'real' life with William. I had preconceived notions for both of their roles outside of the club, but they wrote their own rules....and I really enjoyed it.

I think one thing that I need to note is that the chemistry between William and Sophie was very palpable. I think that was the best part. Not only learning their 'roles' 
with them, but loving them as a couple too. I would recommend this book to anyone that's not going to read it to judge it, but wants to watch a love blossom and grow into something that was amazing and beautiful. I loved William and Sophie. Katie has never let me down....I really enjoyed this story.
