Carolyn is a plain divorcee living a plain life. Though her sexual experiences have all been vanilla, she is drawn to the submissive aspect of BDSM. In the multi-player online world of Other Existence, she finds an outlet for this. It is there that she meets Dave, an older Air Force lieutenant colonel, who turns out to be her dominant counterpart. After weeks of chats in which they share their deepest desires, the two meet in real life and a match made in BDSM heaven is born.

As their relationship develops, she discovers the tenderness and emotion that complements the lifestyle. There are whips and spreader bars, but also loving massages afterward. When Dave is suddenly torn away from her by his duty to his country, it is up to Carolyn to decide if the love they’ve found is worth the fight to keep it.


Review:  Carolyn Mills may be a divorced, middle-aged school teacher by day, but at night, her alter ego hits the Internet for some fun.

In this short read by Isabella Olivia Ellis, Becoming His Little One explores what happens when Carolyn’s daytime and nighttime worlds collide. Dave and Carolyn experiment to see if their online connection will transfer over into real life. There is an emphasis on the BDSM lifestyle, which is where the title comes from.

Had this been a longer story, I probably would have enjoyed it more. There were multiple threads that could have been explored more in depth in a longer novel. Although this is meant to be a quick read, it’s a bit difficult for me as a reader to wrap up all the loose ends in only 40 pages.

There’s plenty of bedroom action packed into the story as the couple explores the BDSM lifestyle, but not really enough content to pull me into the storyline.
