The Trust She Yields by Jennifer Leeland

Title: The Trust She Yields

Author: Jennifer Leeland

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press

Published date: July 2009

Genre/Theme: BDSM

Length: 94 pages

Lee Sidle moved to another state for a good reason. To escape a BDSM relationship gone horribly wrong. But she's a submissive down to her bones, and when a sexy Dom offers her thirty days, her fear wars with her needs. She might accept, but she'll never surrender.
David Peters is used to healing the broken, and Lee needs his confident touch. He doesn't expect to learn any lessons himself, yet this submissive tests him in ways he never anticipated. When her past comes back to haunt her, his one desire is to ride to the rescue. Instead, David and Lee discover her survival lies in the trust she yields.

I haven't had a story touch me like this in a very long time. The depth of emotion between Lee and David was so credible and tangible, my heart literally pounded in several places (because I'm a sucker for a good love story) and I'm not ashamed to admit that I did shed a few tears, which I never do! Sure, the sex was thoroughly erotic and HOT, but I never felt like the author was throwing sex in purely for the sake of sex. There was always an underlying respect between Lee and David and I appreciated it all the more. Whether the reader is in the lifestyle or not, she will be able to relate to these characters and for that, The Trust She Yields gets five smacks. Oh heck, I'm giving it six because I'm a rule-breaker and this book deserves it!

  1. I'm so thrilled you enjoyed this book! I loved writing it. David has been one of my favorite characters and I'm almost sorry to let him go.

  2. I can see why - he was the perfect combination of Dom and kind male. Perfectly yummy!
