History grad James Sheridan thinks his biggest problem in life is trying to find a suitable outfit for his upcoming Ph.D. candidacy exam. That is, until he accidentally texts a changing-room selfie meant for his fashionable sister to his ex, the domineering Professor Carson.
James and Carson haven’t seen each since James fled their power games two years ago. Back in his undergrad days, Carson was his Professor, and not just in the academic sense: a man of unusual tastes and extreme sexual demands, James had been happy to sate Carson’s savage appetites. Too happy, in fact. He never could trust himself not to let Carson push too far.
Now James is older and wiser, and sharing some seriously flirtatious vibes with a cute menswear rep. When Carson replies to James’s errant text, ready to pick up where they left off, James can’t help being drawn back into Carson’s control. It’s only when Carson suggests involving the salesman that James has to ask himself how far is too far, and whether he’s willing to go there with Carson again.
Short, sweet, hot and really, really kinky and very bizarre… I’m sorry, there’s no better way to explain it.
This entire book takes place in the dressing room of a clothing store all because of an accidental text message. The description does a pretty good job of summing things up.
I have to admit, this one took my totally by surprise. I’ve read books by both of these authors before so I knew that there would be nothing tame about this encounter, but this short little book took submissiveness to a whole new level. Having someone have that much control when the encounter is face to face is one thing, but having the option to hang up, not answer or simply ignore that person, and still not being able to… That kind of control was something that was hard for me to wrap my head around. Yet, I couldn’t stop reading it and now I want to know more…
I’ve always been curious about this series and now that I’ve read Giving an Inch, I want to pick up An Inch at a Time, which tells the story of how this ‘relationship’ between James and his professor started.
