Emily Madigan is Seattle’s best wedding planner. Her superpower is managing a thousand details without dropping a single one, and her deepest desire is an hour-long bubble bath and a foot rub.
Until her newest clients want to get married at a BDSM club.
Damon Black owns Fettered. He’s proud of who he is and what he does, and nothing scares him – until two of his favorite people want to get married at the place where they fell in love, no matter how many spanking benches they have to move out of the way to do it.
Damon knows as soon as he lays eyes on Emily that she doesn’t belong in his world. A quick tour of his club will prove it.
Except it doesn’t…
I pretty much enjoyed everything about this book from the cover to the epilogue. For a book about BDSM it was oddly sweet and tender with, of course, a dusting of naughty and taboo.
Emily is a super organized wedding planner who agrees to plan a wedding taking place in a BDSM club. Damon, the owner of said club, looks at Emily and sees a born submissive. The problem is she didn’t know it at the point. We get to go along for the ride as Damon introduces Emily into his world and watching vivid detail as she succumbs to her submissive desires and puts her trust in him.
Ms. Moon described Emily’s transition into submission beautifully. I felt like I was right there with her as she fought the inner battle to put her trust in her dom. I was also right there with Damon as he realized tenderness and power struggles aren’t all that bad.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was the way the author incorporated informed consentand all the opportunities Emily was given to say no. One thing that really struck me about this book was the level of trust and awareness between both parties involved. Their chemistry was incredible.
Little known fact about me, I read BDSM books because I appreciate the explicit consent aspect of it, something it seems is often forgotten in many romance novels. What often bothers me about these books is when the relationship seems staged. This book didn’t have that problem at all.
Overall, Yield is a sweet and naughty read sure to leave you squirming in your seat. I would recommend it for anyone looking to read something on the risque or taboo side of things.
