In a case where the victims are linked by BDSM Detective Jillian Robichaux struggles to figure out her next step. All of her clues have led to a dead end and the killer has a very thorough process leaving little to no evidence behind. Once the NOPD has decided that New Orleans has a serial killer in its midst jurisdiction calls for the FBI to step in.
Sexy and confident FBI Agent AJ (Angela Johnson) seems to know a lot more about the BDSM community than just having done casual research. Being the dedicated detective she is Detective Robichaux is willing to try and get in the mindset of her victims. How far down the rabbit hole will she go to solve this case?
Our leading ladies are Detective Jillian Robichaux and FBI Agent Angela Johnson. Both are strong leading roles consistently throughout the book.
I found both ladies enjoyable to read but I favor Jillian because of her rogue tactics as well as being an excellent picture of a strong fem.
The Writing Style
The writing style is excellent! I found it easy to fall into the story and the pacing kept a smooth pace. I thought this book was going to be just a lot of sex but it really delivered with a healthy storyline.
What I really liked most was the amount of research Kat Evans did for this book. It really showed in her writing and in the knowledge the characters possessed.
My only personal disclaimer is the word cock in a book used by a female always gives me pause. It showed up in the very beginning and I was worried the story might have it all over the place but it didn’t and I was super relieved. Honestly, this is kind of a pro.
Disclaimer- there is BDSM but it isn’t humiliating and on screen BDSM is consented to.
Trigger warnings- a variety of characters come from backgrounds of sexual abuse, child abuse, and a pedophile is mentioned.
If you are interested in even just a little bit of BDSM and enjoy a murder mystery this is a classy mix. I encourage everyone intrigued even the slightest to at least download the sample and give it a read.
Excerpt from The Domme Tamer by Kat Evans
Everything looked exactly as she’d left it. Yet, the tiny hairs on her arms stood on end. Then she heard it. The slightest noise coming from upstairs. Squeak…squeak…squeak…
It sounded like it was coming from the master bedroom.
She reached for her shoulder holster and removed her gun. Slowly, quietly she climbed the circular staircase that led to the second floor. She held her gun at the ready, with her finger on the trigger. At the top of the stairs, she noticed the door to the master bedroom was open all the way.
She took a step closer. Inside her bedroom, it was pitch black, just as she’d left it.
But AJ still heard the noise. Squeak…squeak…squeak. What the hell was that? Had the maid been inside her apartment and left the ceiling fan on? Then she heard what sounded like a woman’s moan. AJ’s jaw clenched.
Fucking women. So help the slut who thought it would be a good idea to break into her apartment to surprise her.
She crossed the threshold of her bedroom, felt her way along the wall from memory, and flipped on the light switch. A woman’s high pitched scream rang in her ears.
Immediately AJ sheathed her gun with one hand and her eyes with the other. “Have you lost your mind?” she yelled as her mother scrambled off a much younger guy and clutched the sheet to her chest.
“Angela! You scared me to death! What are you doing here?”
