Publisher's Summary

A hot lesbian romance!

Can a dominant allow herself to be dominated? Can a woman who defies authority allow herself to submit? Will love come out on top in the end? 

You met Rebecca and Cass in Fifty Shades of Pink. Now, get Rebecca's perspective of their first meeting and see her journey to becoming a mistress. 

Rebecca Cuinn lost control of her life once before, and she spent many years learning how to take it back. As the mistress and owner of an exclusive BDSM club, Rebecca now had control by the balls. She wasn't about to lose it again by falling in love.

Unfortunately, her heart wasn't playing by Rebecca's rules. She always was a sucker for androgynous, sexy women. But did the one that threatened to make her break all her rules have to be so young?

Cass Giles defied authority. So, when she was dragged to a BDSM sex club for a bachelorette party, she refused to let go of her judgments and have fun. No way she would submit to someone whose sole purpose was to hurt you. Just wasn't her scene. That is, until that "scene" included the mysterious mistress. 

Now, Cass was willingly breaking the rules just for a taste of mistress's punishment. But it wasn't just the mistress she wanted. She wanted the woman underneath the mask. And she would do everything she could to prove they were meant to be.

Warning: Intended for 18+ audience due to mature content. This book contains scenes that may be a trigger to some people. This book is merely an interpretation of a small part of the BDSM world. It is not intended to be an instructional "how to" book. Nor does it claim to be everyone's interpretation of the lifestyle.

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!

By far this has to be the best book I've listened to yet and I think it's going to be pretty hard to beat. Journey and Tessa make such a good match that is was like Tessa was made to read aloud Jourdyn's books. This had some emotional and sensitive chapters in it but it also had some happy and Heated chapters too which made such a great balance. It had realistic relationship and life problems in it. This is something I would definitely pay to watch as a movie, yeah its that good. I hope Jourdyn writes another touching, memorable one like this again and of course with Tessa as the narrator again! Kudos to the author for such an amazing book and kudos to the narrator for pulling off all characters involved and you did it flawlessly too.

Love worth fighting for

Rebecca went through terrible abuse and managed to build herself back up to a strong and successful woman. Cassidy is the one person to stir any feelings in Rebecca in years. She tries to fight her attraction by leaving. Cassidy won’t give up and may be the only person who can rid Rebecca of her guilt. They journey together and learn about being in a relationship. Things are never easy but with love you can work through them. Their sex life is off the charts hot and sexy. Jourdyn makes her characters have real emotions and fears. She also gives them support from their friends and family. Tessa did a wonderful job narrating this audiobook and really brought it to life.

Thank you Jourdyn

I read this book in soft cover a while ago and enjoyed it very much. When I saw it on Audio I simply had to HEAR it and prayed that it would not be disappointed.
In truth, I appreciated even more.
This story exposes you to many serious themes and in the hands of another author and another narrator, it might have been turned into just another very, very sexy story.
What differentiates it from so many lesser works are the two main characters, supported by a cast of equally interesting supporting roles.
Chapter after chapter you are taught that love, in myriad forms, is usually at the heart of problem solving and that trust is the core of love.
My compliments to the author for holding my attention for so many hours with a combination of lust, humor, tragedy, maturity and loyalty.
Ms. Kelly has written a number of books but as of now not all of them are available on Audible. I look forward to seeing those titles available in the near future.

Rebecca and Cassidy

My love of the characters Rebecca and Cassidy grew as they continue to understand and persue their love. They allowed me into their feelings as they moved through lifes struggles. The human condition is not often easy or pretty, but their commitment to love binds them together as they walk through the difficulties together. Thanks for writing the LA Lovers series. There is plenty of sex, but so, so, so much more. I wish they were all on Audible. The narration by Tessa Stavers is excellent.

Smokin'

"Just One More Chapter" Jourdyn Kelly's books are all like that.

This is a part of the LA Lover's series, which I highly recommend. "Fifty Shades of Pink" told Cass's side of her and Rebecca's meeting. Becoming tells Rebecca's story in detail.

This book is a page turner. There are some challenging issues, but Jourdyn does an excellent job handling those in a realistic way.

There is BDSM in the book, so it is not for everyone. In this story, Jourdyn weaves it into the characters lives so well as that is only a part of them.

You see many other characters in the book, including my favorites, Eve & Lainey. Be sure to check out the entire LA Lovers collection as you see the characters appear. Blaise as always is a hoot! So is Aunt Wills when she is teasing Cass!

Tessa Stavers does a great job capturing the emotions of the characters.

Excellent!

This was my first Jourdyn Kelly Novel (although I have The Truth about Eve in my que). I was pleasantly surprised! I am not a BDSM person and have never really had much of an understanding of it. This novel was well written and helped me to have a better understanding. It also kept me very entertained with the plot.
I am now looking forward to listening in on the Truth about Eve!
Well done Jourdyn Kelly and well presented by Tessa Stavers!

Hot and enjoyable BDSM story!

This is the first work from Jourdyn Kelly I have listened to, but it will definitely not be the last. This was a fantastic story from start to finish. I'm sometimes leary of how a BDSM story will play itself out, especially when emotions and relationships come into play. The main characters in this story are both broken women due to different circumstances. Through their attraction at a BDSM club, their relationship begins and develops into a strong and loving relationship. The characters are well developed and the story covers several different periods through their relationship. It isn't a one-note story, which made me want to continue to listen for hours at a time. The sex scenes are hot between the two women, showing the loving side of a dom/sub relationship. This is definitely an enjoyable audiobook from start to finish and one I highly recommend.

I received a reviewer copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

Awesome!

I knew the book so I was very curious how Cass and Rebecca would sound. I loved it! All of it, not only the hot scenes! Tessa Stavers did a great job !!
Cass is so sweet and loving, but sexy as hell! Rebecca at first as Mistress sounded distant and later full of love for Cassidy. It was a pleasure to listen!
