Genre: Erotica
Type: Book 1 of A Special Agent Novel series
POV: First Person – Female


The First Time Lois Meets James – It’s All About Pleasure… And Pain

“I am going to break you.

That’s the whole purpose of this exercise. From the moment the door inside that room closes, I am not going to be Mr. Nice Guy. I am going to do everything in my power to hear you scream, and I won’t stop until I hear you beg for mercy. Do you wish to proceed on that basis?”

Today my name is Lois Reeves. I have an appointment with dominant “James Leverett” this morning, because my next assignment requires that I be a “submissive” and I have no idea what that entails. I’m about to find out… by jumping in at the deep end.




Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Lois Reeves had a new skill to learn. As an undercover agent, her assignments took her into dangerous situations, but her skills saved her in the past. Her latest assignment required a new one she hadn’t mastered – the act of submission.

James Leverett knew everything about remolding a person. As a Dom, it’s his job to make sure his submissive’s performance was up to standard. But his latest charge proved to be a difficult one to handle.

I could not think straight around this man, and it was frightening. He had my body on edge and my hormones clamoring for attention.

For me James was a charming bastard lol! He was commanding and demanding, but with a good balance of compassion. However, I didn’t know him enough. There were scenes that alluded things about his background but never elaborated.

I’d signed up for an indeterminable stint of kinky sex training with a madman. This might have been the stupidest thing I had ever done, and I had done some stupid things in my time.

I like how Lois was a tough, fearless female character. But sometimes her ambition and determination blinded her. I like seeing her struggle in fighting her inner self in order to achieve her goals.

Overall, the book had an interesting storyline. Though, I’d prefer if it’s faster pace. There were some parts that felt too long. As for the kinky scenes, there were a lot of teasing and taunting. I was particularly happy with a certain scene towards the end haha!

Sparks is the story of a woman learning to submit. It’s the first book of A Special Agent Novel series. I’m looking forward to see how she’ll cope in the next book.

Final Verdict:
