Gabrielle is supposed to meet a friend at The Sanctuary to watch a demonstration but gets stood up.  Thomas sees her and decides he, along with his friend David, wants to train her.  Gabrielle is curious, but wary, especially after her nasty divorce. 

Submissive Beauty is the first book I have read by Eliza Gayle but it will not be the last.  From the beginning this book grabbed me and kept me interested to the end and caused my heart to start racing.  The emotions that Ms. Gayle invokes while reading this book are intense.  I even started crying at one place toward the end because I was so wrapped in Gabrielle’s story. 

Gabrielle is like a lot of us in that we are curious but sometimes the societal mores we grow up with causes us to either repress our desires, or if we follow them, guilt.  Thomas and David give Gabrielle intense training, while trying to break down her barriers.  Trust is the biggest issue that they had, which is something most of us experience.  I did have to laugh when Thomas changed Gabrielle’s safe word. 

The book is mostly about Gabrielle’s journey and shows how betrayal can wreck havoc in relationships, especially if one party is insecure about themselves.  Ms. Gayle has a very good understanding of BDSM and it shows in this story.  I highly recommend that Submissive Beauty be added to every BDSM lover’s library.
