This book had me from the very start. I am a sucker for Military reads as the men are alpha males, but then the author went and added in the twist of Doms and the lifestyle of BDSM and the needed for revenge along with greed. It set the stage for one of my most beloved style of readings with danger at almost every turn. The characters are well developed and I am hooked on learning more about everyone of the SEALS that are mentioned and I do hope the author plans on telling the story of them all. This book is filled with sexual situations and female submission with every turn of the page. I am looking forward to reading book 2 Owning Sarah, to see how the rest of this story unfolds and how it continues from book 1. This is the first book by Julie Shelton I have read and I will be sure to watch for more of her books. Excellently written, kept me gripped in the events that unfolded.
I did have trouble with the fact though that she seems to lose herself and who she is, no longer having any say or control of her life, it was a bit harsh in spots especially with her safe word he said she would not be punished for using it. However not being allowed to orgasm for 24 hours YET still BE USED, that is punishing her for using a safe word and that angered me greatly. I also felt that the Doms did not truly respect her as a person/human, viewed her mostly as a possession just to be toyed with and used as their personal sex toy….now with that said I understand the basis of the lifestyle having been involved in it myself for many years and there are different aspects for each D/s relationship, what works for one does not work for another.
Owning Sarah — by Julie Shelton
[Menage Amour: Erotic Consensual BDSM Menage a Trois Romance, M/M/F, pegging, spanking, flogging, whipping, sex toys, HEA] It’s been a month since Sarah Marshall was kidnapped and held at knifepoint by her ex-fiance. But Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair, her two loving Doms, know that there is an even deadlier threat still out there–Ryder Malone. He blames both Sarah and Jesse for sending him to prison eight years ago for attempted rape, and he’s determined to make them pay. So, he begins a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation against them. But the danger he poses doesn’t end there. Set against the deepening love and commitment between Sarah, Jesse, and Adam, Owning Sarah is more than just a sexy, sensual, BDSM love story. It is a harrowing race against time for Jesse, Adam, and a team of former SEALs to stop one of the biggest arms-for-drugs deals in US history. And to rescue Sarah before Malone sells her to a human trafficker and she’s lost to her men forever. Note: This book contains topping by the heroine. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

This book is the second half of Loving Sarah, -continuation-, I loved this book, it doesn’t skip a beat you don’t miss out on anything from the first book to this second one. The characters continue to develop and the relationship grows stronger between the three of them. It is heavily filled with sexual content same as the first book. The D/s lifestyle remains foremost and sometimes overbearing throughout the entire book. However unlike the first book it’s more of a loving feeling. I delighted in the writing of the collaring Ceremony, that was extremely beautiful and very well thought out, clearly a case of loving embrace and support, excellent example in my opinion of how the lifestyle actually is, though most do not ever see it.
I enjoyed how the threat to Sarah and the guys as well was handled. I would have perhaps liked more intrigue and dangerous threatening encounters and a bit less of the sexual content, it was almost over done on that aspect. Kind of like a sexual over load if you will. When Sarah got her chance to shine it brought such a smile to my face I had to read that entire scene like 5 times, made me so very giddy that she got her moment, seeing what she got the chance to do I was very pleased, it allowed her to show them she was more than they thought she was.
Excellent read same as the first half. I hope to see some more stories about some of the others, and I will look for more books from this author to read as well.
Well, it doesn’t always happen that the sequel is as good as the first one, but Julie Shelton has that distinction! Don’t miss Loving Sarah and Owning Sarah!
