Title: Burning For Her Kiss 
Series: Serpent's Kiss, Book 1
Author: Sherri Hayes
Genre: BDSM Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 12, 2015

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

She plunged her tongue inside his mouth and took what she wanted. It was the hottest thing Drew could ever remember experiencing in his life.
The kiss didn’t last more than a minute or two, but it was long enough for him to know he wanted more.
Beth rested her forehead against his. She was breathing just as hard as he was. Her chest was heaving up and down, brushing against his chest. Not to mention that she was still straddling his lap.
“Please tell me you want to do that again.”
She laughed. It was so nice to see her happy and carefree.
“Is that a yes?”
“Don’t get cocky on me now.” She ran a single finger down the side of his face and over his lower lip.
He closed his eyes, trying not to push.
“Open your eyes,” she whispered.
When he met her gaze, he noticed the amusement was gone. He was instantly on alert. “What’s wrong?”
Beth shook her head. “Nothing’s wrong. I’m just . . . considering my options.”
“Options about what?”
“Oh.” He wasn’t sure he liked the fact that thinking over her options had banished the fun they’d be having.
Before he could formulate another question, she explained. “Things between us are moving faster than I thought they would.”
“Is that bad?” He needed to know. In his opinion, things between them weren’t moving fast enough.
She sighed. But Drew also noted that she hadn’t removed herself from his lap. That was good, wasn’t it?
“I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.”

If you read my blog or look on my FB page (or through any of my reviews) you'll see that I read quite a bit of BDSM romance.  I got hooked long before the whole 50 Shades thing hit.  But almost all of what I read is with a male Dominant.  I've read menage with female and male Dominants dominating over one sub, but there is almost always a male Dominant.  This book was a huge change for me.  Beth is the Domme and Drew is the sub.  

At first I wasn't sure what I'd think of this book.  I, myself, am far more submissive than Dominant.  My husband and I do not practice D/s, but I am not a take charge person in the bedroom and I am frequently submissive.  But I went into this book with an open mind and was extremely happy that I dd.

While Drew is definitely a sub he's not completely submissive. The dynamics of the couple were much more equal.  Beth dominated Drew, but mostly only in the bedroom and when he wanted something he went for it.  He was strong and sexy.  And he's a man in uniform - a firefighter.  Beth was a Domme, but she wasn't your typical Dominatrix.  She wasn't a sadist walking around in leather with a whip. 

Both Beth and Drew were much more real than many characters I read about in books and they seemed genuine.  Then there was the sex.  Oh my...  Can we say that the scenes were hot?  There were many hot D/s scenes, but also many other almost vanilla D/s scenes.  All were steamy!

If you're like me and usually read M/f I definitely suggest you give this one a try for a change.  And if you read a lot of F/m then I already know you'll love this one.  Bring on the rest of this series!  

I give Burning for her Kiss 4 1/2 stars!

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Nearly eight years later, Sherri is the author of eight full-length novels, and two short stories. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.
