Thou shalt have no other Mistresses before me.
When traveling abroad to visit clients, professional Domme Trinity Maddox loses her passport and her job. She has no one to ask for help but Graciela Fairbanks, her former lover and Domme who threw her out for cheating ten years ago.
Graciela tries to forgive, but old hurts and arguments arise on both sides. Trinity is grateful for a second chance with the woman who first taught her about love and submission, but she resents Gracie’s assumption they will return to their old roles. Gracie demands obedience; Trinity needs assurances of love.
Can Trinity let go of her pride to accept Graciela’s forgiveness? Or is submission too high of a price to pay for happiness?
Mistress, Please picks right up where Mistress on Her Knees left off. Graciela “Gracie” has taken Trinity back to her apartment in Seoul, Korea, where Gracie moved after her disastrous breakup with Trinity five years before. Gracie left the Domme business for awhile and taught school before returning to her profession. Mistress, Please takes us on their journey to see if they can learn to live together, learn to forgive and try to forget Trinity’s betrayal of Gracie with her best friend.
This book seemed almost cruel. Gracie knows all of Trinity’s triggers and seemed hell-bent on hitting every one of them. I had a hard time trying to get through parts of the “scenes”. I have always said that I enjoy a good BDSM book but it was never the spankings, canings, etc. I have discovered that it was the power exchange dynamic that intrigued me. That was not the dynamic focused on in these stories. There were times that I questioned Mistress Graciela’s direction and choices. I know that a powerful Dom/Domme has their submissive’s needs put to the forefront above and beyond their own. My problem was that I wasn’t always certain that some of the actions were purely for training and Trinity’s needs or if they were to ease Gracie’s hurts. These women have a lot to overcome from the past before there can be a possibility of a true future.
The author did a great job at putting my gut through the wringer with this one. At times I really wanted to hate Gracie and Trinity. I know that what happened was needed but I’m not sure it was always handled in an appropriate way in my opinion.
Wonderful writing, but it had me questioning at times, whether I could finish the book or not. It would be a great book for a die-hard BDSM fan, but it made me seriously question whether or not I really am a fan of BDSM at all. There was some “Littles” play, but not as much as in the first book. There was some age-play and role-play also. This book didn’t have as many of the triggers for me as the first book.
