Erotic Contemporary/D/s
Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Carli is a private investigator.  After a particularly hard day in which she was attacked by a client for doing what the client asked, she wants nothing more than to take a hot shower and crawl into bed.  Carli arrives home and realizes that an intruder is in her house, asleep in her bed.  Perusing his naked body, Carli is stunned to recognize that it is Aidan, the man she loved and left eight years ago.

Aidan has come back to his hometown house because of his job.  Needing intelligence from Carli on some dubious activity by her twin brother, Aidan wants to get in, get the job done, and get out. He has spent the last eight years mourning the loss of Carli in his life and there is no way he is going to deliberately set himself back up to be hurt again.

Aidanís good intentions go awry with one kiss.  Unsure of what is going to happen next, Aidan and Carli both know that if they canít be together at this very moment, someone is going to combust.  Aidan wants to know why Carli left him and Carli is unsure she can tell him.  What happens when Aidan finds out? Will he high tail it out of town or will he stick around long enough to find out if Carli and he can have a relationship?

Having never read Eliza Gayle before, I had no preset ideas as to what her writing style would be.  I liked the blurb for Submissive Secrets and since BDSM is my favorite genre to read. I happily sat down to begin.  My first impression of Submissive Secrets was good; I became interested in the story.  Carliís reasons for breaking up with Aidan long ago made my roll my eyes a bit but I had to give her the benefit of the doubt for being young.  Aidan was plain as all get out sexy.  From tip to toe I thought him quite the stud.  If there was one thing that I didnít like, it was the fact that while Aidan needed intelligence on Carliís brother because of his employer, thatís where it stopped.  He didnít search her house, he didnít tie her up, and he didnít torture her.  What he did do was steamy and sensual and very erotic, but the storyline of the brother didnít follow through.

That aside, I enjoyed Submissive Secrets very much.  I look forward to researching and reading Eliza Gayle again.
