Submissive Mia Manetti is devastated when her first Master uncollars her just as she was hoping for a permanent relationship with him. Trying to move on, she agrees to sub for a powerful and sexy new Dom.

Chess Ryan has wanted Mia from the first moment he saw her at Club Restraint, but it was always “hands off” because she belonged to his friend Philip. Now, thanks to that friend’s maneuvers, Mia is finally his. But only for a little while.

Mia finds it increasingly difficult to keep her feelings in check as she experiences erotic delights with Master Chess, sensual and sexual fantasies that she’s never known before. Is she setting herself up for another heart ache?

Guilt, secrets and misplaced pride all keep Chess and Mia from being completely honest with each other. As they connect sexually and emotionally, they realize their relationship has grown too serious to be called “play”. How far are they willing to go as Master and slave?


Review:  Uncollared by Nona Raines is not part of a series but I hope we get to see more of these characters in the future.  I chose this book because after reading the summery I had to know how this book would turn out.

Mia Manetti is submissive and after a year with her first master, Philip she is expecting a permanent collar but gets released instead.  Mia is devastated and stays away from the lifestyle until her first master’s best friend comes calling to take care of her.  Mia is a frustrating character because she fits what many think a submissive is, way too delicate and unable to stand up for themselves.  I wanted to shake her many times through the story and yell “get a backbone”.

Chess Ryan is a Dom who is Mia’s first master’s best friend, Philip and has been in love with Mia since he first saw her.  When Philip finds out how Mia has been copping since he released her he send Chess on a mission to help her.  Chess does a good job of getting Mia to do what he wants but I don’t like that he does not tell her the truth right from the start.  It makes me wonder what else he hides from her.  The chemistry between Chess and Mia is blistering and the sex scenes are scorching hot.

I found this book to be well written but impractical at times.  I find Mia’s reaction to be uncollared by her first master and not calling him out about it unrealistic and not believable in the least.  The main and secondary characters were interesting.  Overall, this was a good book despite how improbable it was at times.
