Summary

Wicked confessions - Startling secrets

My name is James Collier and I am a Dominant. I live north of London in Hampstead Village, and with the help of Maggie Carpenter I'm delighted to share my more notable experiences. 

Being a Dominant is not something that happened one memorable day. No light bulb went off, no great epiphany rattled through my soul. It was a growing awareness, and when the first experience fell into my lap - literally - it was a confirmation of everything I'd suspected about myself.   

This is not a biography, but a recounting of some of my more romantic, debauched, and whimsical dances inside the decadent world of Dominance and submission. Romance, sexy surprises, and learning curves offer a rare glimpse into my wonderfully wicked life. If you enjoy salacious and sometimes outrageous naughtiness, you'll love this book. 

Publisher's note: This book contains lewd and licentious scenes. As James would say, you have been warned....

This narrator will melt your knickers!

I absolutely LOVED this audiobook! I think English accents are hella sexy anyway, but narrator Rob Groves has an incredible smooth-as-warm-pudding voice that just melts me. This is the story of James, a Dominant, and several of his submissives. Rob manages to master both James's steely determination and warm nurturing affection when dealing with his subs. Make no mistake: this book features discipline, bondage, vulgar language and hotter than hell sex. However, these individual stories are ROMANCES and the true emotional connections between James and his submissives are at the crux of each relationship. It's a wonderful ride that I strongly recommend to everyone who enjoys dominance erotica.

An interesting insight.

Would you listen to I Am a Dominant again? Why?

For those who are into this life either personally or in the written word, I'm sure it would be a good one to listen to again.

Any additional comments?

To be honest, this is not my favorite medium. I am rating this with that knowledge. The writing and storyline (knowing it comes from life experience) was very interesting and answered many questions. The narrator was excellent. I had listened to him in another book and enjoy both the accent and voices. You will follow a young man investigating feelings that didn't match his mates (English for guy friends) He seems to be a natural and the women he encounters feel that as well. The experiences are erotic and it is a very steamy book. I would recommend this to any into this genre. A unique book and experience. The friendship with the author is obvious and makes this an even stronger read.

Narrator was perfect for this story

Such a great book. The narrator was wonderful and perfect for this book. He had the right accent and really seemed very confident as the character of James, the dominant. The story is delightful. It is the memoirs of a dominant as he first enters the lifestyle and continues with some of his different experiences. It was not chronological but it worked really well. I really liked the ending which I will not give away in this review. The author does a great job of bringing the story to life. I enjoyed this book immensely.

Perfect, Wonderful & Amazing Real Story

I really love James Collier's characteristic. He's romantic, gentle and a fantastic dominant. Can't belief there's still such gentleman out there. Mirren's story sounds like a fairytale and am really curious what happened after that weekend as it was not mentioned. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story of your life & I really enjoyed reading it. Really hope that there will be more books from James Collier and Maggie Carpenter! It's just so amazing that I can't stop thinking of how James treats his sub! Narrator Rob Groves is amazing! Loved his voice and the way he speaks! The situations sounds very real. Only if there was another lady narrator to make it feel even more real would be even greater! Loved Maggie, James & Rob!!! Waiting for book 2 & so glad that James is still willing to share! Maggie, pls help us get book 2 from James! 😊

Intriguing

I received this audio book from Maggie and I am volunteering my review. This is a very interesting and intriguing book about dominant and submissive life. If you are curious about the life I recommend you read this book or listen to the audio book.

Interesting reading~

I found the story captivated my mind. I always wondered how one realizes he is a dominant.
The telling of how James discovered his dominant nature and sharing some of his personal experiences was rather intriguing.
The naughty, the romance .....I can't articulate my thoughts since I'm not sure where I stand.
I found nothing wrong with what comes natural to some and yet wonder what it might be like.
James enlightened us on some of the techniques.
An open mind is all you need to read this and get a small peek into the mind of a dominant.
Definitely a fascinating read~

An excellent book.

It was not what I expect but it was really interesting. I think Maggie and James made a great partnership and their narrator Rob Groves was excellent. If you want to know just how a man who is a dominant feels this is the book you should get. I have it on audiobook and I enjoyed listening to it. I highly recommend.

Loved it!!

This story pleasantly surprised me. I did not expect to like it as much as i did! As it is a true story of a dominant living in London i thought it would bore me to death......but it had an interesting story to every character he met and a sort of happily ever after for our hero! Good job Rob Groves......excellent narrating!!

Brilliantly and Deliciously written & narrated

I love the way the character James Collier was illustrated. Maggie Carpenter did and amazing job . The "Real James Collier" must be quite character himself. The narration was also fabulously delivered. This book was not only sexy, it was real ; and even hilarious at times. Bravo.!

A Surprise

This was a very interesting and intriguing book. It seemed like a very human and more realistic perspective about being a Dom as opposed to a romanticized version.

James was not perfect. He made mistakes, learned from them, and moved on. In so many of the books in the D/s genre, the Dom is experienced, all knowing, and almost guaranteed to be able to read a sub's mind. James seemed to genuinely care about the women he encountered.

I liked the way this book was written and was pleasantly surprised that it was a different take. I hope James and Maggie write more books about his escapades.

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

The Audiobook being read with the British accent served to add another "icing on the cake" level to This book.
