Students are begging to be held after class…
Andie Lincoln is madly in love with Terrence Knight—her childhood friend-turned-Hollywood’s newest golden boy. But he’s a Dominant and wants her trained as a submissive before he’ll consider a relationship with her. He enrolls her at the RACK Academy with strict instructions for her teachers: do whatever you need to, but don’t take her virginity.
Fulton Matthews, the director of incoming students, is enthralled by Andie. Though he questioned her enrollment at first, watching her discover her submissive nature is hotter than his most intense fantasy. Under his control, her sexual awakening brings him to his knees.
Yet they can only go so far. Andie belongs to another and he’s bound by a contract that strictly forbids relationships between teacher and student. But when Terrence comes to collect his prize, Fulton discovers it’s not easy to let her go….

Don’t be late to class!
Master Matthews serves the punishment.
“…you will always be my beacon of light and my heart’s home.”
This line is perfect for this story. With everything Andie must go through to find herself and what SHE wants, the struggles and the tears, the heartbreak, that light brings her back to the one person that gives her heart a home with love. The perfect home.
Andie Lincoln agreed to attend the Rack Academy, an elite BDSM training facility, to learn to be a submissive for her actor boyfriend, Terrence Knight. Before Terrence would be with her, romantically and as her dominant, he wanted her trained. Seemed he was too busy to do it himself, or too impatient to give up his acting career for his woman. Either way, Terrence was okay with sending his girlfriend to some strange place to be trained to be a submissive. Nothing was off limits except her virginity. Andie knew if she learned she wasn’t a submissive her relationship with Terrence was over. Her only experience with BDSM was learned from google and she was more nervous than anyone at the academy. She knew it wasn’t a good fit, the butterflies in her stomach told her so, and so did someone else. Master Matthews.
Fulton Matthews is an instructor at Rack Academy. Also a Dominant and well versed in BDSM. He wondered, who comes to a place like Rack Academy to “see if they want to be submissive?” Not when the waiting line to get in was so long, 612 to be exact. If you’re the girlfriend of Terrence Knight you do. But does she really learn if she is submissive? Does she want to be just to hold on to Terrence? Or does the training mess with her mind and maybe her heart and make her more confused?
Three months is all Andie has to last. Just three months. That’s not so bad right? Well when you are asked to strip naked on the first day, in front of a stranger, those butterflies are kicking you now telling you to run. Get back in the boat and go back to Portland. She should have listened. But Andie finds her strength through some flame burning deep inside her and decides to stick with this and see it through. For her.
Andie’s character is so well developed. She’s scared and shy at first but builds the courage she needs to continue each day. Thinking she is doing this for Terrence, she eventually finds pride in that she is doing this for her. Her strong character comes through, like the sun eventually does on the island, giving her warmth and bravery to accept her submissive side, and embrace the role and enjoy it. She struggles at time to figure out her mixed up feelings over what she is learning. Heart and head tell her different things. But those struggles are written so well that you understand her feelings and wish you were the little angel or devil on her shoulder to tell her what to do. When she does eventually embody who she is, then she can finally be free to follow her heart to find the truth. But it takes an almost tragic event to help Andie see where her heart should go, to perfect or almost perfect?
Fulton is a man of mystery until he gets to know his student and she sets the fire burning inside him. He is strong, tall and commanding, just how you think a dominant should be. But remember he is a teacher so he is even more impressive in this role. Yes, swoon, and you haven’t even met him yet. Fulton is serious, quiet, mysterious, and ready to prove Andie wrong. She doesn’t belong there in his opinion. But thankfully, he doesn’t own the place and make those decisions. But he is more than ever determined to scare the submissive side right out of her. Ruthless at first, but hot as heck. His character starts to break down some of his walls the more he gets to know Andie and the more he gets to know himself. He also sees another side of her. Forced to work privately with her to get her ready for Terrence, he learns more about Andie, the real Andie. The way only a Dom and sub can. Andie also takes on more of a role at the school than just a student, trying to help out when a situation occurs.
Tara writes such well developed characters that you fall in love with them or you get really angry at them. I wanted to hug Andie and Fulton many times throughout the story. I wanted to smack Fulton some times too, so thankfully I couldn’t come though the iPad to do that. Even Terrence needs a smack or two. But you really learn about the character and their feelings, flaws and strengths. Without boring the reader with too much background or inner thoughts, you discover who the character is and come to almost bond with them. They become real in a sense. You feel their struggle and pain too. I still think back to another book in her Submissive Series, The Master, about Sasha and Cole. I enjoyed that book SO much the characters are still in my head and I read it months ago. That’s how her characters are, strong and well written and memorable. They stick with you.
I love this new series. A fresh and unique story line, daring and fun yet mysterious and dark. There are so many questions to be answered already. I can’t wait to learn the story of Lennox MacLure and Mariela. Tara has me ready for “The Flirtation.” Almost as anxious as I was for this book. I love when characters come back in the next story and even later in the series. Makes them feel like family. It’s nice knowing they are still around.
So you must pre-order this book. Never read Tara Sue Me? You aren’t risking anything, just do it. I couldn’t put this book down and even got upset when I started falling asleep and couldn’t read anymore. She is an amazing author, one that makes you fall in love with each book. No matter how many of her books you have read. It’s like the first time with each book. You fall in love all over again. Her BDSM scenes are respectable and sensual and her love scenes are deliciously arousing. I picked up her first book in Target one day just from the title and the cover. I was intrigued. She hooked me and I’ve never looked back in regret, only forward with an eagerness to read more.
