Alton couldn’t forget Lulu after he met her when he ended up without a model for his third of a book on BDSM.  Lulu isn’t sure about learning about the lifestyle, but she is attracted to Alton.  As she learns more, she finds herself falling in love with him. 

The second book in the Undone Lovers series, Undone Dom, shows a Master that lives the BDSM lifestyle pretty much 24/7 and undergoes a slight change in his attitude once he falls for Lulu.  I like that both characters are strong.  Both also slowly change some of their expectations about each other within the lifestyle. 

I had to laugh at Alton, though, because he was so surprised about his reaction to Lulu and how to handle it.  While some was the standard ‘Dom/sub’ relationship, there were times he stepped out of that role and became just Alton.  My heart melted when he took charge when Lulu got sick.  It was so out of his comfort zone. 

The author has a good grasp of BDSM and some of the nuances within the lifestyle.  She does a good job trying to explain the different levels and that a lot depends on the people involved within a scene, or a relationship, and the dynamics that can come into play.  The chemistry between Alton and Lulu is scorching. 

While Undone Dom can be read as a standalone book, I recommend readers read this series in order as you gain a lot of background from reading Undone Rebel.  I am looking forward to reading about Emory in the future.

Reader Advisory: Contains very light female/female sensuality and a brief ménage encounter.
