For ten years Mac had trained to understand the sort of Dom he is. Now he must explain himself to Holly and hope it’s what she wants.

Holly has lusted after Mac for years, so when he suddenly announces this Christmas is the right time, she is determined to see it through.

Mac is a man of extreme tastes, and he’s not all sure that Holly can be the sub he needs. He has prepared for this time for years.

Will all this preparation bear fruit, or is little Holly going to run away screaming? There’s only one way to find out.


Review:  After playing a waiting game for over a decade, Mac Hall is ready to fulfill all of Holly Winters’ fantasies. But first, she needs to understand that he is a Dom…with all the trimmings.

In Deck Mac Hall, author Raven McAllan gives readers a quick read high in kink but low on substance. While the premise seems exciting, the lack of development proves disappointing.

It does, however, deserve high marks for the hotness level. Think of it as “BDSM 101 for the Untried Submissive.” There are plenty of props to help you get your kink on, but liking a book simply because of the heat factor doesn’t hold much appeal to me.

There are elements of humor woven into the dialog, some of which may get a bit lost in translation since the book isn’t written in “American” English.

What would have made this a much better book is additional depth. The characters seem to have a solid connection, but they aren’t fulfilling their potential.
