Sarah K has a secret.

By day she's a writer and level-headed single mother; by night she's a submissive, living a real-life Fifty Shades of Grey that is thrilling beyond her wildest dreams.

But this is no fantasy: Sarah's story is all true...

Daring, evocative and thrilling, but told with wit and honesty, this is an explosive account of life as a submissive, and of a secret world in which only a few dare to play.

When Max comes into Sarah's life - charming, handsome and deliciously brooding - she can't resist. She surrenders to him in every way: he is a dominant, and Sarah becomes his submissive, yielding her body to his every desire.

But as Sarah pushes her mind and body to its limits - performing acts E.L. James would blush at - she begins to realise that she's in too deep. Pleasure and pain have become her world; she's addicted to the adrenalin, to the sensation and to Max himself.

Now she's in serious danger of giving in to the ultimate temptation: falling in love...

Engaging, entertaining, eye-opening, and funny. The Marquis de Sade is quoted, "Sex is as important as eating or drinking..." But lots of people, for different reasons, take vows of chastity. Or as someone else said, "No one ever died from lack of sex". This book highlights that people are complicated, and it questions the idea that 'normal' is defined by one set of behaviors, and any other behavior is 'aberrant'.
