It was business only...

Chelsea Barton is terrible at the whole submission thing, and she wants to snare the Dom of her dreams. She seeks out the renowned trainer Master Alexander. Alex has his hands full with Chelsea, especially when he realises he doesn't want to turn her over to another man...

Damn, damn, and double damn. This was so not supposed to happen.

Chelsea Barton always gets what she wants, and she wants the up and coming rocker Evan C to accept her as his sub. But her performance always disappoints him.

Determined to have her way, she begs Master Alexander Monahan to train her.

Alex has given up training submissives, and no matter what, he would not work with someone as bold, headstrong, and stubborn as Chelsea.

But there's something about her that intrigues and impresses him, an enthusiasm that is missing from his too-dull life. Under very strict guidelines he agrees. She has to try her best. She has to submit uncomplainingly to his punishments. And there's a two week obligation, after which they will part ways. Being a trainer is a very different relationship than a D/s, and despite his intentions to remain aloof, he starts to care deeply for the headstrong Chelsea.

Chelsea unhesitatingly agrees to Master Alexander's rules, after all, he's going to give her the skills she needs to get what she wants. But, damn it, the longer she trains with him, the more she is attracted to his rugged good look as well as to his firm, but relentless ways. She reminds herself of her goals, but that becomes more difficult every day.

For Alex, falling for a sub who will belong to another man was never part of the deal.

Even a stubborn, opinionated woman can be a submissive. Some are naturals and others need a bit of work. Is this really true? Anyone can be a submissive if they work hard enough at it? This is an iffy theory. My personal view is a person needs to have the inclination to be a submissive in order for submission to work.

In ON HIS TERMS, Chelsea Barton is an aggressive and manipulative spin doctor. Her goal is to land a few big-name clients in order to help her small business grow. She mixes it up with pleasure when her target clients are Doms. Exposed to a little kinky slap and tickle, Chelsea is determined she can easily be trained to be the perfect submissive. She targets Master Alexander to train her. He isn't taking on new submissives to train but that doesn't deter her.

Ms. Cartwright does a good job of showcasing a newbie submissive coming to grips with a mentality she wasn't expecting. This is almost like a BDSM 101 class yet done in a manner which is smooth to read, if a bit idealistic. The D/s shown in this is high protocol. It's something which is very appealing to many in the lifestyle. Not all D/s relationship require this kind of ritual and protocol, but it is a very popular concept people try to emulate. The issue with learning all these rituals is that sometimes it's just going through the motions and not understanding the deeper connection which makes D/s worthwhile.

Ms. Cartwright shows how it's more than just positions and blind obedience in a subtle manner. She uses Master Alexander to walk Chelsea through the difference and it's so good. Watching Chelsea coming to grips with the need for the connection with a Dom is delightful.

This story is recommended to kinky readers wanting a glimpse into high protocol D/s training.
