Sometimes doing a favor can change your life forever...

Never one to rate her curves, Sally thinks her glamorous sister has lost the plot. Stand in for her at a photo shoot with the most sought after bondage photographer ever? She'll be laughed out of the studio, or arrested, or both. However, the temptation to actually meet the man she's been secretly lusting after for months proves too hard to resist.

Junsako cannot believe his eyes when Sally turns up. It's been a long time since the Dom in him felt such an instant pull to anyone. All those curves will look beautiful in Shibari suspension, and Sally proves to be a born submissive. If only she would let go of her body issues and see the beautiful woman he sees through his lens.

Only one thing to do—convince her—with as much kinky sex as possible.

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, spanking

An erotic photographer with a real woman model? Finally a more real to life BDSM story. In THROUGH A DOM'S LENS, Sally is a normal woman with curves. Curves like the majority of us females possess. She ends up in a rope bondage photo session which makes me envious. Junsako, the photographer, is a delicious dominant looking for a new submissive.

The two characters, Junsako and Sally, are sweet and the chemistry between the two is palpable. This is a romantic erotic fantasy which can actually come true. Based on the few BDSM photographers I've met, their preference in BDSM models for rope bondage are very close to Sally's body type and attitude.

For those who have never seen rope bondage or experienced it, "Twiggy" models used for bondage are neither attractive nor arousing. There is something viscerally sexual when flesh is bound and bulges out due to the ropes. When the rope separates and emphasizes a soft body restrained, it is beautiful for the viewer and sensual for the bound. Ms. O'Connor does a lovely job describing the rope bondage and giving the readers a little taste into the art of Shibari.

Ms. O'Connor packs this novella with some hawt erotic imagery. The dominance scenes Junsako takes newbie Sally through are divine. They are a perfect experience for a curious submissive. Most of the BDSM in this story is focused on sensation play and involve D/s and specifically BD. There is no SM in this story. This erotic novella is recommended as a Gateway to BDSM book, especially for those who love bondage.

Sometimes the key to building self confidence is to look at yourself from someone else's perspective.

THROUGH THE DOM'S LENS by Doris O'Connor features a curvy gal named Sally who isn't quite comfortable with her looks. However, Master Junsako uses both his camera and his skills as a Dom to show Sally a different perspective.

Because this is a short read, there's not a lot of time to develop a complex storyline. However, the author provides a quick look into the BDSM lifestyle with a Dom who can spot a submissive streak with his eyes closed. Shibari, which is a type of rope bondage, plays a key role in the storyline.

Given Master Junsako's dedication to his role as a Dom, I was surprised by the way the story ended. I did find that the inclusion of a plus size girl as a main character added to the depth of the storyline.

The only thing missing would be a more robust plot, but that is a bit tricky to accomplish with less than seventy-five pages. Instead, the writer presents a spicy read that proves that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.
