The New York Times bestselling author of The Submissive returns with a scintillating new tale about power, danger, and jaw-dropping passion....

Nathaniel and Abby are struggling to navigate the challenging waters of their own relationship, when they get a surprising phone call from their partners in play, Dena and Jeff, who are in need of a helping hand…

Seven years ago, blonde, beautiful lawyer Dena Jenkins was tired of her carefully controlled life. Desperate for something exhilarating to help her escape the pressures of her demanding job and her senator father, she joined a steamy, local BDSM club as a submissive. There she met brooding Dominant, Jeff. The attraction between them was undeniable, and, despite Dena’s doubts, they couldn’t stay away from each other.

Except, as the years have passed, their blazing connection has proven difficult to maintain. Dena and Jeff have a history they’d rather forget, but Dena can’t let go of the past, and Jeff is ready to move across the country to give her space. Now, to save their passion, they’ll have to rediscover what it means to trust each other—and give themselves to each other completely…

So, looking for something that is even hotter than 50 Shades Of Grey?  Yep, I have it right here.  The Collar by Tara Sue Me.  It is part of the Submissive Series, and it is SMOKING.

We meet up with one of our favorite Doms and his beautiful submissive, who just happens to be his wife.  Nathaniel and Abby are joining some friends Dena and Jeff.   Dena who is also a submissive and previously with Jeff has had some one start stalking her.  When things seem to escalate she contacts Jeff.  Given their past history and the fact that Jeff is a top notch security specialist, Dena knows that he will look out for her.

Jeff still has deep rooted feelings for Dena, even after several years.  When she tells him of the stalker he immediately starts trying to find who it is.  When he is called away he has Dena stay with Nathaniel and Abby while he tends to other obligations.

As the two spend more time together, they find that things in the past have not resolved between them.  The emotions are just as strong as they were before, but can they over come all the things that have taken place.

I enjoyed reading this book.  Tara Sue Me continues to keep us all hot and bothered with her Dominating Alphas.  But, this story allows us to see what and why Dena and Jeff have the issues that they do.  I could not help but feel the emotions that was moving through out this book.  The way that we are given friendship, loyalty, trust, bonding, and even love is what makes this so in depth.  Tara Sue Me is a great writer, who can keep your libido moving towards scorching hot.  Do not hesitate in picking this book up to read, but make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to finish it and then to cool back down, because you are gonna need it.

Chapter One 
Present day
Jeff Parks knew it was taking all of Dena’s willpower not to look his way. And since he had once had that willpower bend to his command, he was well aware of the strength involved. On any other given night, he’d be using his own willpower not to stare, but in light of his recent decision—
“Have you been listening to anything I’ve said in the last five minutes?” his friend and fellow Dom, Daniel, asked.
Jeff looked back to the man standing at his side. It was late on a Thursday night and their local BDSM group meeting had just ended. No one was in a hurry to leave though. Everyone wanted to stay around and talk with Nathaniel and Abby. At the moment, Nathaniel stood beside Daniel, grinning. The guest Dominant had led a discussion about keeping D/s relationships from getting stale. Considering the two scenes Jeff had participated in a few months ago with the married couple, staleness wasn’t an issue between Nathaniel and Abby.
“Sorry. What?” Jeff asked Daniel.
“Nothing important. Just going over plans for the play party tomorrow night.”
“Your house at ten.”
“At least you remember that part,” Daniel said in his not-quite-teasing voice.
“I’ve got a lot on my mind.” He might as well go ahead and tell Daniel everything. He’d find out  eventually  and the two of them had been friends for long enough that he deserved to hear the news from Jeff himself. “I’m moving.”
“You’re what?” Daniel asked in shock. 
“Why?” Nathaniel asked at the same time.
Jeff’s gaze automatically found Dena again. She was talking with Abby and Julie. Daniel’s submissive must have said something funny, because Dena snorted with laughter, shaking her head. Her long blond hair swayed with the movement. 
“Ah,” Daniel said.
“It’s not what you think.”

Tara Sue Me wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. It would be twenty years before she picked up her pen to write the second.

After completing several clean romances, she decided to try her hand at something spicier and started The Submissive. What began as a writing exercise quickly took on a life of its own and The Dominant and The Training soon followed. An avid reader of all types of fiction, she soon discovered she enjoyed writing a variety as well.
