The Submission Gift is the second book of the L.A. Doms series. Jay has suffered for the past year due to injury in a car accident. Adriana, his loving wife has cared for him without complaint. As a way to thank her for her love and devotion he hires a rent boy, or escort, named Paul to give Adriana the things that he himself can’t give.
Jay and Adriana have a marriage with a very interesting dynamic. They are very much in love, and at the same time best friends. There are no secrets between them and this includes the fact of Jay’s bisexuality. This is a couple that has had so many obstacles, but they always put the work in to the relationship and endure. Jay and Adriana embody the definition of soul mate and unconditional love. Paul has a checkered past, a job that is quite controversial, but when he steps into Jay and Adriana’s lives he is like a puzzle piece that was missing. Both Jay and Adriana have a special connection with Paul and he fills the voids that both Jay and Adriana have. In turn the couple fulfills Paul’s needs. I found all three characters complicated in their own ways and therefore very interesting.
Ames graced the readers with an amazing piece of work. It has everything erotica readers are looking for in a great story. I really enjoyed the storyline in itself, these characters felt very real to me. Most of this is in part to the way Ames created them to be very open and communicative. Love is a factor in the story, but the sex scenes are distractingly hot! It was also fascinating to get an inside look at this developing polyamorous relationship. I have to give props to Ames for pulling off such an emotionally complicated story.
The Submission gift is for mature readers only! Be prepared for plenty of ménage scenes, and role play, and many other delicious scenes. I will also note that although this is the second book of the series it is a stand-alone read. Now that Solace Ames is on my radar I can’t wait to see more!
