HUNG UP by Roz Lee
I should have told Colton what he could do with his money, but I need it to keep the doors of my dance studio open. So, here I am, naked and bound, with a bull rope around my waist, and despite the intricate suspension system holding me up, I'm falling hard. Falling for the impossible man who threw me for a loop and lassoed my heart. ~ Beth

What happens when a driven, alpha woman is forced by circumstance to participate in a shibari rope display? Bound and immobilized by the country's leading Dominant rope master, Ava fights to keep control. If she does the unthinkable and allows herself to submit to Roane, will she lose the only part of herself that really matters—her heart—to the man who now holds her destiny in his practiced hands?

"Hung Up" and "Alpha Submissive" are two stories published as part of the Not Vanilla erotic series and they are both simply marvelous. As someone fascinated by shibari as art, I've often wondered about the emotions and mindsets of the people involved in public events. Is it arousing? Does it hurt? How quickly do their muscles fatigue? What is the rope wrangler thinking?
In both cases, these stories did not disappoint as they both tackled everything from the butterflies of first-time models to the potentially overwhelming emotional response to outright orgasmic reactions.
Both stories are well done and the authors do a splendid job of creating characters that are both likeable and relatable. Who hasn't taken a job that they didn't want to because they needed the money? Or, taken one for the team when someone bows out of a planned event and there's no one available to take his/her place? While the female characters seem to be placed in untenable positions, their decisions turn into something more than they expected. Much more.
As someone who very much enjoys it when authors can effectively show us what their characters are thinking and feeling to the point that we feel them ourselves, these stories definitely do not disappoint. And well, can I just say, rope. The sensuousness of rope as an extension of someone's fingers…think on that and chances are, you'll want to read these stories again and again.
