I received Sweetest Mistress by Skye Warren after participating in a blog hop in June. I finally began it yesterday, but never even read the description. As a girl who loves an alpha male in my romance, I was a little concerned about Wyle’s internal monologue, though it made me giggle. Wyle is so excited to get a date with this young hottie, he’ll do anything to get in her pants, yet he knows he isn’t worthy. When she invites him in for “coffee” his thoughts are:
“Coffee meaning sex, right? My dick perked up, well-versed in the coffee-sex synonymy. That’s what coffee means, but did she know that?”
Then, when she expresses that she wants him to tell her what to do, and he assumes she wants him to dominate her like all women he is with, he goes with it, because
“A girl like her, practically slumming with me. It could be something bad. That would explain why she’d wanted me. I’d be desperate enough to do it. But I had a suspicion that if she wanted me to shove food in her orifices while chanting satanic rituals, I’d ask if she preferred bananas or zucchini. That’s how much I wanted to fuck her.”
Then she realizes dominating her isn’t what he is into, so she asks him his fantasies. He admits he wants to be spanked. He is a male submissive, but doesn’t quite realize what he is. She seems to be willing to go with anything he wants, and really gets into her role as a fem-dom, even though she clearly isn’t.
Though this isn’t my regular type of book, I was surprised I enjoyed it so much. Wyle was a very real, very insecure guy, and his inner monologue was funny and went with his personality.
I was also surprised I was a little turned on by the idea of making a guy worship you and do anything you want. Maybe I have a little switch in me after all. Overall a fun, different type of book, and an interesting look at the other side of things with a female Domme and a male sub. The book was short, only 74 pages and it isn’t all Domme/sub, they play other sex games, and he spanks her out of anger at one point.
