Publication Date: May 20, 2014
Enthrall Her Synopsis

This is the escalation of the forbidden. This is the power of Enthrall.

Deemed too feisty to train. Too defiant to dominate. Mia's journey into the world of the forbidden takes its next step.

Richard Booth, her master, must make the crucial decision...let her go or give her over to the only man who can her truly subjugate her, Cameron Cole, Director of both Enthrall and the preeminent BDSM manor Chrysalis, and a connoisseur of the dark arts. Cameron's gift with shaping blossoming submissives will ensure Mia reaches her potential, a destination that may take her too far.

Mia's choices will lead her to places both within and without that she never dreamed possible.

But when her training is complete, will Cameron be able to return her to Richard, or will her transformation have bewitched him beyond repair?

 ARC Received for an honest review

Enthrall her is the second book in the Enthrall Sessions series, and you will need to have read book one, Enthrall, before you start on book 2.

In Enthrall we met sweet, innocent Mia Lauren, who lands a job at a sex club, and meets the intriguing Richard and Cameron.  Both doms, both sexy as sin.

Enthrall her carries on where Entrall finishes up. Mia is growing and changing as things move along.  Her relationship with Richard is moving forward, she loves her job, and she is more and more intrigued with what happens as the club and at Chrysalis.

She is struggling with things in her past and things in her present have sent her mind reeling.  She feels she is fine but both Richard and Cameron know that things aren't right.

This is where things get a bit murky.  Richard and Cameron come up with a plan/an idea to make Mia confront these issues.  When Richard signs over Mia as Cameron's sub for two weeks to train her as a good submissive, you just know things are not going to work out all they all planned.  Waters get muddied, feelings and emotions get involved and confused.

As much as I wanted to feel for Mia in this situation, she was not the one my heart went out to ~ that was Richard.

Sure I felt Mia's confusion, her hesitance at the training involved, but she chose to enter the lifestyle.  And as much as she says she loves Richard, she agrees to it all.  While Richard was willing to give it all up, she seems willing to give up Richard for learning the lifestyle.

The relationship between Richard, Cameron and Mia is seriously frigged up.  Cameron is supposed to be Richard's best friend, closer than brothers, but really, is that the way you treat your friends.  I could see where the story was going to go, and did NOT want it to go there.  I wanted to scream at the characters for the turn things took.

Both are such strong men but who will win her heart?

Enthrall her delves deeper into Mia's psyche and is quite dark at times.  But it is also HOT!  The scenes at Chrysalis - woweee!! Get me a fan!!  There was sweet and there was sexy and there was down right dirty!  And I loved it all!!

Vanessa Fewings writes scenes that draw you right into the room with the characters, gets us right into their minds.  Her writing is insightful, believable, and kept me interested from the first to the last page.

But now, since I didn't like the turn the book took, I need to hope that things right themselves in Book 3 (well, right to me anyway, you might like the way things turned out!!!).  

“POSSESSION IS THE ultimate pleasure,” said Cameron, admiring my nakedness from a few feet away.

Had he spoken those words prior to securing me to the Saint Andrew’s Cross in the center of Chrysalis’s dungeon, I may well have put up more resistance. This free standing crisscrossed board would allow him full access to my body from every angle. He’d seduced and coaxed me to follow him and I’d gladly held his hand all the way down here, taking the short journey from the foyer into the lowest depths of Chrysalis. Passing door after door, each room begged to be investigated, but we’d not stopped to peek in any of them. We’d entered the room at the end of the hallway.

The dungeon of his choice.

Cameron had undressed me and I’d willingly let him, lifting my arms above my head as he’d stripped me. I’d obeyed like a well trained sub as he unhooked my bra strap and removed it. After nudging me back against the fixture, he’d positioned me spread-eagled with my wrists and ankles secured within leather straps. He’d pulled them tight to ensure movement was impossible.

Operatic music bestowed a sensuous backdrop of soprano’s dramatically vying for attention, an extension of this already exotic mood.

That daring decision had led me to this.

Rising from subspace, I opened my eyes as though awakening from a dream. Spellbound, my thoughts spiraled out of control. My body trembled with need and a lust for him to be closer. All I wanted was to have him inside me. That was the only cure I needed. I saw that now.

Five minutes ago, though it could have been longer, I’d been weighing the pros and cons of bolting out the front door and somehow, in true Cameron style, he’d casually led me into his red walled playroom.

I’d walked beside him willingly.

This dungeon was unlike any I’d seen, decorated with the decadence I’d come to expect from him. Several oriental-styled cabinets were flush against each wall and probably contained all sorts of whips, paddles, and other accoutrements. Mirrors and contemporary artwork hung between bronze sconces, providing an ethereal air. Low lights showcased the ceiling fixtures that were perfect for the art of suspension, dangling submissives and leaving them vulnerable, their body’s secured with rope or chains or whatever else the dominant desired. The wonder of floating would ensure they remained in subspace. Sharp hooks were fashioned on the end of some for those with a overly masochistic leaning. I offered a silent prayer he’d never use those on me.

I wondered if, after our session, I’d get to recover on that regal four poster bed with its carved posts. It was artfully strewn with drapes and chains and leather cuffs, just in case the submissive got too comfortable.


A rush of excitement flooded my veins and my trembling limbs struggled to be free from these leather bindings. Twisting my wrists, I was shocked by the sting to my flesh. Being ensnared was mesmerizing. These straps felt agonizingly tight and trying to escape them was thrilling.

I was soaking wet, and my scent gave me away.

Cameron dragged what felt like a whip along my backside, sending spasms into the center of my universe, soothing, luring, seducing me to surrender.

His handsome face came into focus and shadows danced over his beautiful features, his stern stance proving he ruled the room. He held up the whip for me to see.

Cameron had stripped off his jacket and shirt and was now naked from the waist up, his black pants hanging loose over his hips, revealing his muscular sculptured body, that incredible toned torso flexing as he moved.

He snapped the whip. “Are you worthy of this?”

“If you deem me worthy, Sir.”

“I do.”

The strike to my left thigh made me flinch. He continued on, strike after strike, circling my

body with the ease of a predator overwhelming its prey. The stinging left bright red welts and they burned and hummed when his strike left them. The snap of the crop between my thighs made me jump. With his left hand, he eased apart my labia and flicked the leather strap across my clit. I let out a cry, and a groan of need. Working at a steady pace, he snapped it continuously until my moaning hinted I was close. He raised the whip to my pelvic bone and slid it along my abdomen, up and over my nipples.

Satisfied I’d calmed, he again lowered the whip, torturing my pussy once again with the curl of leather, teasing and striking, flicking and patting.

He ceased those delicious strikes, his face reflecting the triumph of masculine control. “Mia, you are soaking wet. Good girl.”

I shuddered when he squeezed my clit between his thumb and forefinger. “Who does this belong to?”

“Well as it’s on my body, I can only assume it belongs to me,” I said. He threw the whip down and disappeared behind me.

Oh no. I really was out of my mind.
