The question: "Would you like to try BDSM with me?"
Elizabeth Kemp never thought she'd ask friend and colleague, Preston Lancaster to be her submissive. Even more surprising, he agrees – on one condition: she has to return the favor. Her two weeks as his Domme ends with a dramatic climax she wasn't prepared for – she's hopelessly in love and terrified he'll break her heart.
Dr. Preston Lancaster has been in love with Elizabeth since the day they met. His two weeks with her are more than he ever imagined, but when the tables are turned, she refuses to make good on her promise to reciprocate. Preston isn't giving up without a fight, but he's not fighting for two weeks of dominance anymore. He's fighting for forever.
Can Preston convince Elizabeth that her heart is safe with him – or will two weeks be all he has?
Yours, For Now by Siren Allen was a pretty good, quick read - although I'd consider it "light" in most categories. I enjoyed the book overall, but it didn't make my favorites list. I was expecting more of a BDSM/erotica book, but I definitely wouldn't put this in that category at all. There weren't many sexual situations in it, and when there were, they were definitely less detailed than I would normally prefer.
However, the character of Preston was a book-saver for me. I really enjoyed his character. In the first few paragraphs you get the impression that he is quite naive, but that definitely isn't the case. As it turns out, he is witty, mischievious, and playful. Not only all of that, but he's got a thing for Eliza and I love how he jumps in feet first to her request.
As for Elizabeth, she is probably the downfall for me in this book. Originally I thought I would like her, I mean, she ask's Preston the question of trying out BDSM with her. That takes courage. But after that, I felt like she was playing games with him and not being entirely truthful. I felt like she treated Preston like he was a bit ignorant. Overall, her naive personality just didn't click with me and I found her annoying rather than cute.
As for their budding romance, it was interesting. I wish there had been more details behind it, but I get that he's loved her for a while so there wasn't much needed there. The intimate scenes weren't very explicit, but there were definitely some emotional moments that I enjoyed. In the end, there was a bit of drama, but again - not very much detail. Overall the story was enjoyable and sexy for a quick read, though, and I'd recommend it for someone who doesn't want to get deep into a longer book.
