~ Synopsis ~

This is the reward of the forbidden. This is the ecstasy of Enthrall.

Billionaire Cameron Cole is the one in control. He makes the decisions of both pleasures and punishments. He is the ultimate master. Owner of L.A.’s preeminent BDSM clubs, Cameron has yet to relinquish the all encompassing control of his submissive, twenty-one year old Mia Lauren.

Mia’s training unlocks a maelstrom of passion. A powerful connection. An unpredictable result. Her uninhibited journey intensifies by the day, but there are new complications on the horizon.

A powerful rival of Cameron’s has emerged with a relentless desire to make Mia his own. Lance Merrill has the means and the will to take what he believes is his and bring down an empire in the process.

Mia is taken by Cameron to London for her protection. Her obedience will be tested in ways she could not have foreseen. Richard Sheppard, her former master, has decided it’s time to take her back. Will Cameron give her over?

Or will the choice be hers?

In the rousing third novel of the renowned Enthrall Sessions, author Vanessa Fewings guides her readers through the uncharted territories of raw passion into the most heated corners of the human heart.

This is true obsession. This is the time for Mia to Enthrall Him.

Enthrall Him continues Mia, Cameron, and Richard's story. Where the previous installments focused on immersing Mia in the BDSM lifestyle, this last installment focuses on keeping Mia safe as well as the overall growth of the characters.

One element I've really appreciated over the course of this series is the psychology behind the decision to participate in the BDSM lifestyle. Ms. Fewings uses also psychology to explain behaviors and Cameron being a therapist aids in this. I liked that Cameron used psychology in helping Mia confront her past and that he also taught Mia much about the science. This added so much perspective.

As I said, Enthrall Him focuses on keeping Mia safe from events set in motion in the last installment. Cameron is the one who takes on the role of Mia's protector. We see that his feelings for her have evolved beyond those of being merely her teacher. His struggle with those feelings and Mia's imminent return to Richard are difficult to witness. Revelations come to light about Cameron and why he has always remained single as a Dom which afford a deeper understanding of him. Although I understood, his indecision and contradictory behavior towards Mia was frustrating. But Mia (and I) didn't give up hope.

Richard, once present in the action, showed a different side of himself. His jealous side and his inflexible side make themselves known and they aren't as attractive. His actions towards Mia are perhaps realistic but I also felt they were selfish and immature at times. I always liked him and felt for him with the demons he carried. His behavior, though, reinforced my thoughts on his being Mia's Dom. I was relieved when he was finally honest with Mia and himself.

Mia continues to grow. She shows an incredible amount of empathy towards Cameron and Richard, as well as other characters. Mia is desperate to repair relationships, to make and keep people happy. She learns that she can't make people be happy - that's their choice - but she helps initiate some things that might help Cameron and Richard move towards that end. At one point, Richard accuses Mia of being selfish but I never saw her as such. Even her decision to embrace the BDSM lifestyle, although it aided in her growth, was done to help Richard be happy.

Enthrall Him sees so much character growth for Cameron, Mia, and Richard. That growth comes from them each dealing with their demons. Although not action-packed, there was action and a lot of tension which kept me riveted. And it all led to a satisfying conclusion.

  1. I've been known to dabble occasionally in BDSM, I just don't review 'em on the blog, they are my 'just for me' guilty pleasures. I think I'd really enjoy Fewings' take on this lifestyle, it sounds like she really thought those aspects through instead of just throwing them in to piggy back on the current trend as is so often the case lately. Way to twist my arm, Brandee!!!

  2. It's officially a guilty pleasure of mine now, Carmel, thanks to Fewings. I really enjoyed the overall arc of the story and the characters are wonderful, too. Cameron Cole makes me swoon! ;) I hope you enjoy it if you decide to pick it up.

  3. I'm curious for the psych justifications for the BDSM lifestyle. Trauma? Abuse?

  4. I am glad to see you like the conclusion to this story. It is interesting to see another side to Richard in this one. Great review.

  8. Yeah, I wouldn't know anything about having books on my kindle that I haven't started, Berls. ;) I enjoyed this series quite a bit - watching the characters grow. And swooning over Cameron. So COYER!!
