There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
To me, the situations seem fairly authentic, if a little idyllic, but that’s what we’re reding for! With any romance, both main characters seem too good to be true and too well suited to be randomly thrown together (yes, I'm envious).
Some of the reviews said the opening wedding scene wasn’t believable – well, I loved it and wanted to believe it because I would love to be Julia. Dropped into the deep end of her old friend’s BDSM lifestyle, taken in hand and shown the ropes by the gorgeous Dom, Marcus.
Yes, there’s lots of talk and explanation, but to the curious and uninitiated like me, it was just perfect. With a great mix of sexual tension and satisfaction to keep you turning the pages. Problem is now I’m squirming to explore. But where do I find a gorgeous Dom like Marcus?

WELL, MY DEARIES. I can tell you two things.
It was educational. By contrasting Marcus and Julia’s controlling ex, it showed how BDSM does not automatically equal being abusive (though that’s not to say there aren’t abusive Doms). So much care was put into showing that everything is consensual, and explaining how BDSM can work in various ways for various people, all to their tastes. Safety, consent, and communication were repeatedly brought up. I’ve read several Goodreads reviews from people who seem to know the lifestyle themselves, and the general opinion is that this was a fairly accurate portrayal of BDSM.
It was hot. Wow. Despite being almost clinical at times, the information being shared actually increased my anticipation for the good stuff, which is exactly how it felt for the heroine. As she was getting tense and restless, so was I. The chemistry was insane, and yet I felt like I was learning at the same time. I have to applaud the author for managing to strike that balance!
Earlier, I lied. I did actually try another book labeled as “BDSM”, but it was an angsty romantic suspense type thing, and it was neither educational nor entertaining, so I DNF’d it. As such, I decided to pretend it never happened because yawn.
SO. This was a success. Will I be reading more BDSM books? Honestly, I don’t know. I feel like I did so well finding this one that I’m sort of nervous that others won’t be able to live up to it, or get the representation all wrong. Would I recommend it? Yeah, actually, if you’re curious to learn more about the topic.
I was introduced to this genre of fiction from Fifty Shades of Grey and my goodness does this book make those look rubbish. The storyline in With This Collar was nothing like I expected - but it absolutely captivated me! I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!!! It just seemed so real and introduced me to the BDSM lifestyle. Don't get me wrong - it's not something I want to get into, but definitely the top subject of my reading list now. Not only was the storyline great but the characters were so likeable. Each chapter flips between the the 'Dom' (Marcus) and the 'sub' (Julia), which gives you both perspectives and has you loving both characters in equal measure.
I would completely recommend this book and especially to anyone who read Fifty Shades of Grey and not sure what to read next. The writing and editing of this book is way above Fifty Shades. With This Collar will not disappoint you - it didn't me anyway. I can't wait for the next book to come out and in the meantime I shall be reading more books by Sierra Cartwright.
