At Her Feet by Rebekah Weatherspoon is an erotic romance and I guarantee you won’t find anything else like it in lesbian fiction. It’s funny, sweet, and hot with a unique premise, and if you give it a chance, you just might love it as much as I do.
Suzanne Kim is waiting for her porn to load, flipping between Twitter and celebrity gossip sites, when she signs into her kinklife account and sees a post too good to ignore: “Mami looking for her little girl–Los Angeles, posted by Mami-P.” After exchanging a couple of messages and meeting in person, Pilar and Suzanne agree that Suzy can try being Mami-P’s little girl.
Suzanne is finally able to explore the specific submission she’s long craved, and Pilar more than delivers as her dominant. Their relationship is the perfect refuge from her stressful job in digital marketing, soothing away the strain of long hours spent catering to unreasonable clients. But when work and kink collide, can her relationship with Pilar withstand the pressure?
At Her Feet is told in the first person from Suzanne’s perspective. She’s hilarious and bold, not afraid to stick up for herself, but she also has a tender heart that relishes Pilar’s nurturing. Because this is a story with age play BDSM, I appreciated how much we got to see Suzanne as a capable adult, especially when she’s at work and excelling at her job.
We only see Pilar through Suzy’s eyes, but I loved her warm, yet firm attitude and the depth of her love and caring for Suzanne, whether as her little girl submissive or as her overworked girlfriend. Her occasional flashes of insecurity and vulnerability make her relatable and reinforce how much she cares for Suzanne and her wellbeing.
The Writing Style
Let’s get the basics out of the way: the writing is tight, the pacing is perfect, and the character work is strong. This is by far my favourite of Rebekah Weatherspoon’s books, and that’s saying something, because I love all of them.
At Her Feet isn’t the first book I’ve ever read with age play, but it’s the first one I’ve ever liked. I’ll try reading almost anything, and I stumbled into some age play books that I can only describe as sketchy at best, with consent that was either dubious or nonexistent. I backed away and vowed never to read anything like that again. The blurb for At Her Feet doesn’t come right out and say it features age play, but it does, and it’s beautifully handled. Everything between Pilar and Suzanne is consensual, they talk about limits before they start to play together, and they regularly check in to discuss how things are going. It also helps that we see Suzanne in her normal life away from Pilar’s home, and we occasionally see them spend time just as girlfriends.
Hilarious banter, an adorable relationship, characters I love, and a happily ever after that makes me so, so happy.
I need more Pilar and Suzy in my life and I don’t know that it’s ever going to happen.
At Her Feet is hot, hilarious, and so, so sweet. I can’t recommend it enough to anyone looking for a lighthearted erotic romance.
Excerpt from At Her Feet by Rebekah Weatherspoon
“Good morning,” she says in her perfectly sexy voice.
“Good morning,” I reply. I sound like I swallowed a Brillo pad. I walk over to inspect what’s in the pan. She’s making pancakes.
“How did you sleep?” she asks.
“Okay. Can I have a kiss?” I ask bluntly. She’s in charge, but I feel a little cheated about having to sleep alone. I’ve also wanted to kiss her since the moment we met.
“Of course you can,” she says. She sounds happy with the request. She leans down and pulls me closer with a firm hand on my butt. Her lips are soft and her breath smells like fresh coffee. She kisses me sweet and slow, teases me with her tongue. Her mouth makes me wet, and I want to rub myself against her apron-covered thigh, but the pancake is burning.
She pulls away and tosses the burnt flapjack.
“My, you’re a sinful little distraction for Mami.”
“Do you like the way I kiss?” I ask.
She smiles just a little. “Yes, baby. I do.”
