Isabelle Ashcroft has been under the control of her adopted brother for years, being told how to act, what to wear and who to be. But when he takes her to a BDSM club without her realising, she ends up in deeper trouble than ever before. Cam looked up to the CEO of Ashcroft Industries until his death, and always had a thing for his adopted daughter. When at the club he hears her distress and rushes in to save the day...

Sweet Submission kind of sounded like it was going to be one of those books where you couldn't escape the sex, and I chose to read it because of how much I found myself enjoying another of Sloane's books, The Seduction. But in reality Sweet Submission is actually barely about the sex at all. Yes there is an undercurrent of attraction between Cam and Isabelle, but ultimately this seemed like a set up for the rest of the series. And I liked that.

At first, even from her POV, Isabelle came across as rather shallow and just a shell of a person, but as Sweet Submission progressed she seemed to  develop and become more and more of an individual. This wasn't only through her own POV, but also as Cam got to know her and see who she really is.

In contrast, Cam still feels like a bit of a mystery. I'm not all that sure exactly what his story is, only that he has one, and I think that is another thing that added to the enjoyment of Sweet Submission. There was a lot of building up the characters and I can definitely get on board with that!

Sweet Submission holds promise for what is to come, and gets you suitably intrigued!
