When Sophie Jameson first became a domme at Club 1740, it was more out of financial necessity than it was for personal pleasure and sexual exploration. But over the years as she rocked her leather corsets and boots while wielding every crop and flogger imaginable, she grew to love the thrill and adulation that her clients brought her. But all along, her path in life and her heart was with a different profession—one she was planning to embark on at the summer’s end.
And then he changed everything. Tall, dark, impossibly built—William was the complete opposite of whatever image a male sub conjured up. After all the subs, Sophie finally felt true lust and desire. Although he was the proud stallion who needed breaking, he became the one to make her break all her rules and let down all her walls.
But it was just supposed to be for that one night, but an accidental encounter days later outside Club 1740’s protected walls had the two seeing each other in a different light—as simply Sophie and William, not Domme and sub. While they should have parted ways, they couldn’t. While they should never have gone back to her place, they did.
And that simple mistake has a serious price for both of them.

Are you ready to submit in Subordination by Katie Ashley!
— 5+ stars —
“Subordination” is the story of Sophie. She’s a student, daughter, sister – and Dominatrix… She doesn’t do this because it’s her choice in lifestyle, she only needs the money to support her sick father and younger brother. But when she meets the enigmatic sub William, sparks fly and suddenly not only Sophie’s heart is on the line, but also her dream of becoming a teacher.
I admit that I was a bit skeptical before starting “Subordination”, because a male sub is something you find very rarely in books. My fear was, that William would be a whiney and weak male MC. But he was not! William was adorable and strong, he was sexy and his cravings for pain only made him more appealing (for me at least).
The writing style was amazing, it was an easy flow through the book. The pace was just right and even though it wasn’t too angsty for the majority of the book, I was completely invested in the story. The characters were so great, not only the main characters but also the side characters. It was a very extraordinary love-story but it worked so well. Plus it was a very emotional journey for a young woman that tried to live and make her way despite everything fate put in her way.
The sex-scenes were deliciously hot! I loved the D/s dynamic between the two MC’s, but also thought they were very hot as a ‘normal’ couple. Even though it had quite a few heated scenes in it, I wouldn’t shelf “Subordination” under erotica, the plot outweighed the sexual parts by far.
All in all, I rate “Subordination” with 5+ stars and can definitely recommend it to everyone! And that William is described as a Henry Cavill look-alike doesn’t hurt, either LOL Just do yourself a favor and grab this amazing book!
