Entirely suited to one another, Jack and Samantha continue to explore their sultry, kink-drenched love affair. Jack, a dominant’s Dom, pushes Samantha’s boundaries, making Sam do things she’d never thought she wanted to — never believed she would. He takes her in public, on stage, punishes her with both sensory deprivation and erotic overload. And then he proves to her that all of those actions suit her to perfection. Costumes, erotic toys, role-playing, and a 24/7 BDSM-lifestyle fulfill Samantha’s dirtiest dreams. Yet can she manage to stretch her love for Jack to incorporate his carnal need for his male assistant, Alex, as well? Take the ride with this deviant trio and enjoy their complicated, intricate, happily ever after.


Review:  As the third installment of the Story of Submission series, Wrapped Around Your Finger continues its explicit foray into the BDSM lifestyle as Samantha and Jack move deeper in their relationship.

No one could ever say that author Alison Tyler tiptoes gently around the concepts of dominance and submission, sadism and masochism. Instead, she delivers a novel that is both erotic and spine chilling in its realism.

Jack has developed a series of sexual scenarios based on the seven deadly sins in anticipation of their trip to Paris. As the story unfolds, Samantha begins to learn that the real journey is to determine her needs, not her wants.

If you are not comfortable with graphic material, including m/m and f/f action, then this is not the book for you. However, if you ever wanted to step outside your comfort zone and learn about the real world of BDSM, then a story by Alison Tyler should be a starting place.

While I found myself cringing after some scenes because I could never imagine that level of pain being a personal turn-on, I was impressed with the exacting way that the story was written. The first-person point of view gives the reader a personal look into Samantha’s mind as she processes the scenarios created by Jack.

If I’m going to read BDSM erotica, I don’t want it sugar coated. Alison Tyler strips away all the pretty wrappings and gets to the core with this gritty series. It’s challenging to read, but you know when you’ve finished that it was real.
