She’s ready for even more.…

When Abby West discovered her submissive desires, she felt like she was born anew. But lately, her Dominant husband hasn’t been the demanding Master who once fulfilled her every passion. Abby begins to crave something else—and to wonder if Nathaniel can still push her past her boundaries to the places she craves.

Nathaniel knows that Abby belongs to him completely, but even he can’t ignore the pleasure on her face as they get to know their new BDSM group. They’ve invited Nathaniel to guide their group to a new level, and he’s promised to show them the way, even as he recommits to fulfilling his beautiful submissive wife’s every desire. Only this time, uncovering her sexual limits may also expose their relationship to more conflict than it can withstand.…


Tara Sue Me’s sixth book in her shockingly erotic romance series, The Exhibitionist, is finally here and readers find themselves back with Nathaniel and Abby as they navigate their ever changing relationship. It’s been a long road for Abby from the moment she met Nathaniel and realized her submissive qualities. They have faltered along the way but their commitment to each other has never been stronger. As any relationship does after years of being together, things have slowed down with the commitments both Nathaniel and Abby have outside of the playroom, but through it all Nathaniel has strived to keep them connected as Dominant and submissive.

Lately Abby has been hinting at wanting to try more public play now that they have settled into a new home and new BDSM group. As much as Nathaniel tries to give Abby what she craves, he worries that he may not be enough for her anymore and perhaps bringing in a second Dominant is what she actually needs. The idea of sharing Abby set his teeth on edge, but he knows if it’s what she needs, he’ll do anything to give it to her. The problem I had with this was the fact that throughout the book Abby repeatedly says she doesn’t want or need a threesome. She says she has no problem with other men participating in a scene in a non sexual way, or watching her and Nathaniel together, but over and over she says she doesn’t want another man/Dominant participating in the actual sex. Yet Nathaniel seems to think he knows her better than she knows herself (grrr) and feels the need to pursue the idea which causes friction between the two. Otherwise, Nathaniel is his charming, commanding and very sexy self. His ability to come up with scenes in which to have Abby submit were imaginative and made this reader long to be able to step into the scene and experience the sensations first hand. His caring, sensitive and yet strong demeanor always has me coming back to re-read scenes where he’s forefront and exhibiting his true nature.

Past characters make appearances and set up the story nicely for what is sure to be an excellent following book which will feature Dominant, Cole and submissive, Sasha. Their story is sure to be emotional as Sasha gets over her fear of submitting after a harrowing ordeal that left her battered and bruised. Because of Cole’s reputation to be an extremely demanding Dominant and unused to the softer side of things, his instant attraction to Sasha was as surprising as her attraction to him. Especially since she has shied away from anything BDSM related since her bad experience.

As always, Tara Sue Me creates erotically charged scenes with ease that never fail to quicken the pulse. Her characters are relatable, well rounded and realistic. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series and The Exhibitionist takes Abby and Nathaniel’s relationship to the next level, emotionally and physically. Watching their relationship evolve over the years has not only been wonderful reading but satisfying as well. I will be eagerly anticipating book seven!


I give The Exhibitionist by Tara Sue Me 4 stars!


The smell of lust filled the room. In fact, the sexual tension was so high I would bet most of the women present longed to be in the place of the lovely redhead. Currently standing in front of Cole Johnson, the Partners in Play group’s newest senior Dominant, the petite woman trembled slightly. Although she was fully clothed, she displayed a vulnerability I was all too familiar with.

“Daniel told me she’s been having difficulties focusing,” my husband and Dominant, Nathaniel, said. We were at a play party being held at a private residence. He stood behind me, and though we were somewhat removed from the group, he still whispered. “He said he hopes the session with Cole will help.”

“With everyone watching?” I asked. “That seems unlikely.”

“I guess we’ll see.”

We couldn’t hear Cole’s voice; he spoke too softly. The submissive’s gaze drifted from him to the watching crowd. Bad move. Quick as a lightning strike, Cole grabbed her chin and forced her to meet his eyes.

“On me,” he said, the threat in his voice noticeable before it dropped back down to a whisper.

“Perhaps he believes if she can focus while in the middle of a crowd, she can focus during anything,” Nathaniel said.

There was probably some truth to that. The submissive certainly didn’t appear to be tempted to look our way again. Then again, Cole had placed his hands on her shoulders and started a slow stroke up and down her arms. All the while, he kept his eyes locked on hers. I doubted there were many women who would be able to think about anything else if he was looking at them like that.

After a few minutes, he stepped back and spoke to her again. “As far as you’re concerned, you and I are the only people

in this room. Understand?”

She answered with a softly spoken “Yes, Sir.”

“Louder,” he said. “Own your words.”

“Yes, Sir,” she repeated, this time with more confidence.

“You are to keep your eyes on mine the entire time we’re together unless I tell you to do otherwise.”

“Yes, Sir.”

“What’s your safe word?” Cole asked.

“Red, Sir.”

“Thank you. Take your shirt off.”

Her gaze briefly flickered to the floor.

“That’s one, sub,” Cole said, and she sucked in a breath. “Tell me what you did.”

“I looked at the floor, Sir.”

“And what were you supposed to do?”

“Keep my eyes on yours.”

Cole nodded. “Take your shirt off the proper way.”

This time, she kept her focus on him while she unbuttoned and slid the shirt off her shoulders. It fluttered to the floor.

“Very nice,” Cole said. “Now remove your bra.”

I wasn’t a Dominant by any stretch, but I’d been an active submissive for long enough to know and recognize hesitation. Hell, I’d done it often enough myself, but I always learned something new when I was an observer. It was certainly interesting seeing things from a different prospective.

Cole took a step toward her. “On the checklist you filled out, how do you have public nudity listed?”

“As won’t object, Sir.”

“And how else am I to interpret your hesitation as anything other than objecting?”

“I don’t know, Sir.”

“That’s because there is no other way. That’s two. Now remove the bra.”

She quickly reached behind her back to unsnap her bra, but my own focus was suddenly shifted to my husband’s two hands, which were unbuttoning my shirt.

His voice was rough in my ear while his fingers stroked my breasts. “You like watching, don’t you?”

“Especially with you teasing me like that with your hands, Master.”

“You like teasing?” he asked.

I realized what I’d said and how he’d probably interpret my words. “Uh, well . . .”

He chuckled. “Too late. I’m going to thoroughly enjoy teasing you tonight, but for right now, watch Master Johnson.”
