Summary

Adam Rawn wasn't looking for a sub when he went to the new club, Chained, with his friend, Rick Winter. Not exactly anyway. But he wasn't adverse to it. Instead, what he found was a Domme with an air of mystery about her. Mistress Angela has described herself as being new to the scene but quite sure that she was a Domme; Master Adam can't shake the feeling that maybe there are some hidden desires that Mistress Angela is unaware of. After all, he's never been attracted to a Domme before, so perhaps she's a submissive at heart and just doesn't realize it yet. She wouldn't be the first person attracted to the scene who didn't understand exactly what their needs were.

Angel has been interested in BDSM for a while, but her friends who would understand her desires are several states away, and although she's finally ready to explore her fantasies, she feels she has to do so on her own. Her closest friends in town are guys who would never understand, and her best friend, Leigh, already has a boyfriend - a rather territorial one. Nervous about going to a BDSM club, afraid that she might be putting herself in a bad situation as an unattached submissive who's completely new to the scene, Angel decides that the safest way to explore being in public is as a Domme. That way, she can get used to the club scene and watch out for common pitfalls, keeping herself in a position of power until she feels comfortable enough to know what she's doing. Although she eventually wants to join Stronghold, the club closest to her home and with the best reputation, she makes her debut into the BDSM scene at Chained, a new club that's far enough away she feels safe enough to lie about her preferences and present herself as Mistress Angela until she's done some exploring.

When Angel finally feels comfortable enough to make her way to Stronghold as a submissive and Master Adam recognizes the "Domme" that he's been obsessing over, the result is explosive.

I loved this!

I love this genre.. it one of my very favorites. So reading a story about a club, and the Doms and submissives that are members, is a find I’m glad I made.

Adam has trust issues and plays the field. Until Angel comes into a club he’s visiting... as a Domme. His instincts have trouble rectifying her as a Domme.

Angel goes to a different club than the one she wants to join, as a Domme, which she is not, to see what she’s getting into before joining Stronghold.. as a submissive which is what she is.

When she joins Stronghold, her entrance scene is with, none other than Adam. Who now has her pegged as a liar because of her pretending to be Domme elsewhere. This begins a back and forth for him.. can he trust her?? It’s a wonderful story and is very well written. Roberto scarlet to did a great job... except I want to teach him how to pronounce cuisinart and bustier.. lol

Great start to the Stronghold series

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sassy Submissive to be better than the print version?

Tough question! I have read the entire Stronghold series including prequels (the Venus series) and enjoyed them very much. The audio edition is a welcome addition which is a different, and equally enjoyable way, to revisit an old friend.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Angel! she was so straight forward, brave, likeable and yes sassy. I also liked that she wasn't a wilting violet needing to be rescued but rather a strong capable women going after what she wanted.

Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favourite?

I have a soft spot for the gentle southern drawl Roberto Scariato used for Angel's friend Mike ...

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It reaffirmed my belief that you can sort almost anything out if you are prepared to be honest and talk about it

Any additional comments?

I'd thoroughly recommend the entire Stronghold series!

It was great, but....

Angel is curious about BDSM. She’s heard some not so good stories and wants to explore before she chooses a club and submits to a Dom. She goes “undercover” as a Mistress so that she won’t feel intimidated, and it makes her feel empowered. She encounters a group of Doms and she has caught the eye of Adam. She has been wanting to explore her fantasies, and she knows that doing that in a safe environment with rules will help her relax and be open to trying the various fetishes involved in BDSM.
Adam had no intention of acquiring a new Sub, but when he meets Mistress Angel, he knows there’s something off. She does not have the “air” of a true Dominant and when he sees her at the local BDSM Club, Stronghold as a submissive, he knew he was right. Not wanting a Sub is no longer on the table, and he wants to explore everything with her. Nice, thick, and curves in all the right places. She is exactly what he wants.
The Good: This was a good story. Delving into the beginnings of the Dom/Sub relationship was a perfect way to get readers to understand just how delicate that relationship is. The trust involved is even beyond the trust in a marriage. So, I enjoyed the fragility that grew into boldness.
The Bad: Although the story was good, a true Submissive would not be so sassy. She would respect her Dom and her goal is to please him and he rewards/punishes her for her behavior. I know that is not so simple, but she was a bit over the top with her defiance. How could they develop a true Dom/Sub relationship if she is being just as Dominant as he is?
The Ugly: There wasn’t anything ugly about this read. It was fun, sometimes quirky, and interesting.
Adam and Angel would be perfect in a normal relationship. I loved the plot, and the story was easy to follow. The Narrator was phenomenal. I fell in love with Angel’s roommates, and her best friend Leigh was likable. I didn’t like her relationship, and I hoped that she would explore her sexuality since she was in an obvious one-sided relationship. The back stories on the other Doms was also very good. I wanted more from this read when it came to the realness of BDSM. Don’t get me wrong, when they played in the Dungeon, they were magnificent! Delectable, lip biting scenes that made your toes curl, however, her sassiness took away from that. If you want a Dom/Sub story that doesn’t follow the normal rules of that relationship, then this is the read for you! 4 Stars

Very good story!!

I don’t normally listen to BDSM nor contemporary stories but I was pleasantly surprised. This has opened my eyes to a new genre that I have be skipping. I am glad I took the time to listen to this story. I now have to find more stories like this to add to my library. Thank you Golden for opening my eyes with this story.

Sassy submissive

Thinking this may have been a bit slow or boring, but it turned out to be very entertaining. Of course the rich sexy voice of Roberto Scarlato brought it to life. He portrays all the characters with ease and easy to distinguish between them. He’s a pro for sure!! Love that this book was 12 hrs and thank you Roberto again for being so lovable. 😍😘

Pack your patience

This was pretty good. The story was a bit longer than it needed to be. I know this is the base and beginning of the Stronghold series so I understand the need for the "extra" detail. The couple meets under false pretense and struggles with trust issues early on. Then throw in a few misunderstandings and lack of communication and the story is underway. The author seemed to fall a bit short on the emotion in this book for me. I never really got worked up over Adam and Angel's love story. It just seemed kind of average for me. There are A LOT of characters so there is the possibility that one of the other books will spark more heat but investing sooooo many hours really sets a bar for me when I'm reading a story. When you invest 15 hours you want to finish the book with a big case of the "feels" but I feel like this book concluded more like...."and then they went to work on Monday, the end"

Adam💘Angel🔥Great Story! Great Audible Listen🎧

4.5 Hot🔥Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is my first Golden Angel book and I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the world she created, as well as the characters in that world. She has a wonderful great writing style, the characters and dialogue are realistic and relatable. The storylines are interesting and captivate you from start to end. This is Adam and Angel’s story and their building relationship. The D/s scene are hot and all nicely done. We get an inside glimpse of The Stronghold Club and meet Adam’s friends who are also members, I like the dynamics of their group. We also meet some of Angel’s friends too. I am looking forward to the next book in this great series.

I listened to the audible edition, Roberto Scarlato is an awesome narrator and storyteller. He sets a nice tone for the story and performs the voices for all the characters bringing them to life from the pages to your ears. He is a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for a great listen!

Good Character Building and Detail

If you could sum up The Sassy Submissive in three words, what would they be?

Realistic story about someone's entrance and exploration of 'The Scene' with a realistic romance intertwined. Some definitely hot and steamy elements along with sweet.

Any additional comments?

I was a bit happily surprised at the length of this book (15+ hours), which often leads to good story and character development. Golden Angel did just that with her attention to detail. My only critique (and it probably more of a personal one than to the masses), is that it almost took too long for the couple to finally get together. After the very first time they met, it took another 3 hours of listening for them to meet again. That is a lot of anticipation! There was a bit of repetitiveness in the character's thoughts (e.g. a review of their behavioral intentions) throughout the book that I thought were unnecessary but overall, I was happy with the reasoning behind why characters were doing certain things which lead to a more realistic story in the end. Great job, Golden Angel! I would definitely listen or read her other books based of the good quality of writing and storytelling.
