Embracing My Submission: The Doms of Genesis by Jenna Jacob Blog Tour

Haunted for years by dreams of a savage, amber eyed Dominant with lips so enticing my soul ached in frustration and lust. None of the Dominants at Genesis, my local BDSM club ever stirred me in such blistering ways. While I tried to fill my submissive desires vicariously through interactions at the club, I attempted to convince myself it was enough. But it wasn’t. My dream Dom made certain I hungered for more.

Forced beyond what I could bear, my passion and frustration exploded. I threw in the towel, determined to stop chasing a dream and gave up completely on finding submissive surrender. But fate intervened when two gunshots split the night. Forced to confront my desires and insecurities, I was shocked to realize that my dreams may have held a deeper meaning. Were they compelling me to finally embrace my submission?

This is the first in a series, and does a good job of setting the scene and identifying the key characters in the Club. This is Emerald (aka Julianna's ) story, although through her we are introduced to the leading players at the Club. Once we get to meet the biggest player, the race is on to get things straightened out, and on course. I felt greatly aggrieved for Julianna, but she seemingly chooses to forgive and enjoy how things work out. The steamy scenes may be best read away from a public place – unless that is one of your kinks!

After reading many, many such books, I think this one does a good job of neither being too trite, too condescending or too serious. I have some issues with the writing style, but the story was strong enough to keep me reading. I have the next book lined up on my Kindle.

I was totally expecting the "normal" BDSM club type book, but am happy to say this book wasn't that!

Emerald is an unattached submissive who spends most of her free time at Genesis, a BDSM club. She's actively hunting and hoping for a Dom to come in and swoop her off her feet: this is where the similarities end (to the "regular" club books I've read). Personally, I liked Emerald from the 1st page and wanted to read her story. She's sassy, independent, kind, and she was easy to identify with. Her journey of submission was a struggle, but at the same time it was liberating.
The secondary characters were also likeable, and I'd like to read more about them (Drake and Trevor, Sammie, Savannah and Nick and Dylan, etc).

There are paranormal aspects that I didn't really like, but they added to the story – so I can't say they were unnecessary. I can say the over-use of "girl" was unnecessary, I find it hard to believe that of 3-4 different people that speak to Emerald – EVERYONE refers to her as "girl." The other aspect that bothered me, well, I don't want to spoil the story, but I have an issue with a major plot line.

This story was FULL of angst, emotional turmoil, glimpses of romance, and infuriating evil. The sex is scorching, the Dom/sub dynamic is hot, and I WILL definitely be reading more about Genesis.
3.5 stars

Emerald is a submissive without a Dom, she has had dreams with a mysterious man and woman. The man in her dreams sets her on fire and no one else can seem to do that. In walks a new Dom and even though he doesn’t match the guy in dream she is still pulled to him, but he isn’t all that he seems. After the crap hits the fan Emerald meets her dream man. Seriously it is him, AND the mystery woman from her dreams is in a picture on the dream man’s desk! At times this story is frustrating because you want to slap people but it is also an endearing story and when the book is done you will be happy with the journey. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

Characters: The characters were well written and the secondary characters are amazing and add a lot to the story as well.
