What begins as Clay’s first family vacation with his new wife quickly dives into disaster. He may be the submissive in their relationship, but he’s no shy violet. Bianca has taught him the quickest way to turn her on is a challenge, so he’s throwing down the gauntlet.

Bianca butts heads with not just her brothers, but also her husband when the family torturing begins. But the joke is on him. She’s ready to put him through the most erotic misery of all. She’ll show him who’s Dominant in their relationship until he’s screaming for more.

Their relaxing Paris vacation turns into a mad dash through the ancient streets, a competition of wills and a new exploration of what it takes to make their relationship work. From bondage, discipline and very public orgasms to navigating the Métro, family feuds and overcoming the language barrier, they’re going to redefine the word fun.


Review:  This is one of those rare books highlighting a Domme in a relationship as opposed to the male taking charge.

In Collar Me in Paris, author Sidney Bristol writes about the adventures of a married couple who get caught up in a family challenge to find envelopes hidden throughout the city.

With the Parisian landscape as a backdrop, the couple battles against family members to see which couple will come out on top. Meanwhile, Bianca and Clay, who have an established relationship where Bianca is the Dominant, find themselves exploring the boundaries of their relationship.

The author has put quite a bit of effort into bringing Paris and its beloved landmarks to life. Unfortunately, the Domme story line didn’t quite work for me, especially since there were numerous times throughout the book where Clay had to take the lead outside the bedroom.

There is a strong emphasis on pain and its connection to pleasure, as well as some less publicized aspects of the BDSM lifestyle. The heat level is high with plenty of kink.
