Derek put aside the BDSM lifestyle once he met Elise, willing to be ‘vanilla’ as long as he was with her.  When Elise finds out, she feels he doesn’t trust her with his past.  Will what happens next break them apart?

Velvet Valentine is the first book in the Velvet Scenes series, taking place at Club Velvet Ice.  There are several levels to the club that require various types of memberships and the third floor is where the very private rooms assigned to the Doms and Dommes are.

The relationship between Elise and Derek is very intense.  Both feel hurt about the rift between them, but Derek isn’t listening to Elise when she wants him to trust her.  Elise decides to take extreme measures with the help of some of his friends.

I admired Elise for the stand she took, even though she wasn’t always sure about things that Derek wanted, which ended up becoming a test for their relationship. Elise was surprised with herself and how much she ended up liking being submissive. 

Once Derek started showing Elise this side of him, he realized how much he missed it.  He realized Elise was right about possibly resenting his life if he kept suppressing his Dom side.

I am looking forward to reading the next one in this series.
