My Review:


I've always made a point of tirelessly recommending this series to anybody who needs something sexy and addictive to read. It's also no secret I have always been team Cameron, and never swayed in my devotion to the dark, sexy, and stupidly clever Dom. So when it came to Richard's story, I was inquisitive of course, Richard is a great character, and I wanted to see more of him. But I was also a little nervous to read the story without Cameron's presence. 

I very rarely like books with actors and actresses in the story. It's not a subject I have any interest in at all, so I did wonder what that was going to be like. I need not have been worried. Vanessa Fewings faultless storytelling kept me hooked, as I knew it would. 

Andrea Buckingham, up and coming actress of the minute, takes her craft seriously, and her latest role is in jeopardy if she can't be convincing, and make the audience believe her. She needs the help of an expert in a certain area, but being nervous about the topic she needs help with, means needing somebody discreet and good at what they do. Someone who will also break down some personal walls for her. 

Andrea pursues Richard Booth. Senior Dominant at elite BDSM club Enthrall. After being told he is one of the very best. She soon finds out why Richard's name was passed on to her. Richard brings out a different side in Andrea, and teaches her things about herself she never would've dreamed of doing or feeling. 

After losing Mia, Richard never expected to feel the way he does, around anyone. He didn't want to take on Andrea, didn't want another woman that needs to be trained. After his last sub, he doesn't want to do it again. But Andrea pleads, and Richard, who is curious, gives in. 



I'd been a shipwreck caught in the storm.Through Andrea I'd found safe harbor.

This novella is obviously based on someone who is new to the BDSM scene. So we get to see what Richard does best, show the readers a side of that world, that leaves us totally enraptured, and addicted to the story. It's shown to Andrea in a way that entices her, and leaves her wanting more, and of course us too. 
This is obviously down to the incredible writing of Vanessa Fewings, and the amazing world she has built throughout the Enthrall Sessions series. I will never tire of anything that is connected to Enthrall, this is obvious in the fact that, even with Cameron missing from the story mostly, I still loved every minute. I was scared that without the presence of Cameron, who is a character who literally steals the pages, that I would find the story lacking in some way. I couldn't of been more wrong. Richard holds his own as another sexy, additive Dominant, that has me wanting more.

The fact that Richard's story was spread over just one novella, meant that the pace was sharp, snappy, and completely gripping. The heat within this particular chapter in the Enthrall sessions is on top form. It's smoldering, and intense as it always is in Vanessa's books. 

I think if I had never read any of the books in this series, prior to Richard's Reign, I would've been completely hooked, and probably would of been madly in love with Richard. His story was fantastic, and he certainly gives Cameron a run for his money. But, I am loyal and will keep my fingers permanently crossed that we haven't seen the last of Cameron. I also hope there is more to come from this dark and delicious world. 

Richard's Reign is without a doubt highly recommended. With or without the rest of the series. It is deliciously addictive, and clever. Another look into the world of those who like to play hard, and have the money to do it in style. 


Not allowing myself to love had been the darkest of all betrayals.
 A decision forced by my own hand, no less.

5 HUGE Stars!
