    Storyline: GOODIntimacy Level: D.R.I.P(Don't Read In Public) + Sex-citingly GOODEnjoyment: GREATLength: 4455 kindle / 252 pgStyle: Multicultural BDSM EroticaSeries: Doms of Genesis I'm in love.....and I don't know where to start. First off, I want to shake the author silly for making me cry, I wasn't expecting that. The story took you from curiousity, intrigued,emotional, with a bit of tearful moments and then to sexual. If you are debating reading this,then read the sample for your kindle, it gives the first three chapters, so that should wet your appetite enough to want to read it. This isn't your watered down, no storyline BDSM, it had substance to it. If you can't stand the heat, the content and language within this book, put down the book and walk away slowly.Julianna a.k.a Emerald, has been at Genesis for four years and is getting frustrated as she has yet to find a Dom who will take her, and being the only one without a Dom is starting to become a bit embarrassing. On the verge of an attack, she is rescued by the man she's been seeing in her dreams, Mika, a fine specimen of a man I might add. I won't say who Mika is as it's apart of the excitement for me when he rescues her. By chapter five, curiosity, mix with a bit of excitement starts flowing in to my reading, not because of what happen to Julianna, but who. The chemistry and emotional pull between Mika and Julianna was good for me because it wasn't just another BDSM story, but it also felt like a true love story and that's what tug at my heart. The hospital scene, I was all over the place. I commend the author on how she conveyed the hospital scene to me as a reader. In that moment and scene, I was thinking to myself, it almost felt like everything happen for a reason for Mika and Julianna to bring them to that point. Pretty much after that, sexual enjoyment exploded within the pages and Mika and Julianna's Dom and Sub characters went to another level.What also made this story, the secondary characters of club Genesis, a freaky bunch, that's what they all are, hehehe. You can definitely tell they were not just friends but consider each other family and I love that. The surprise for me was Emile, Mika's father. I selfishly wanted to keep reading a bit more about him and this personal assistant.Overall, a brilliant read for me personally and I can truly say that I enjoyed this story from chapter one right down to the epilogue.REVIEWED: 11/16/2012by

    This book was a really pleasant surprise.I came across it by accident, and what made me decide to read it was that I needed a BDSM-themed book which had a title beginning with the letter E. Given my reasons for reading it weren't much, neither were my expectations. Then I started reading, and very soon I realized this would be a book I would enjoy. Thankfully, I was right!The book is entirely written from the heroine's perspective. There had been several times when that sentence meant the book went on my nerves, but this was not one of those times. Luckily for me, I really liked Julianna. She was sweet, and fun. I don't think I've ever read about a submissive that stubborn and hotheaded. She really was something else, and I loved it. Granted, she did have a few pity parties, but let's face it - who hasn't? And to be fair, she had some valid reasons.Julianna was a submissive without a Dom, something that haunted her because she wanted nothing more but to find a good Dom who would claim her as his own. She had a past bad experience, which did not manage to turn her away from the lifestyle, and now she was under the protection of a Dom from a BDSM club she was a member of who was her mentor. I really liked Drake and his sub Trevor. There was just something about them, and their entire interaction that made me feel very comfortable reading about their world, and very much enjoying it. It was funny that every time someone called Drake Daddy, I would immediately remember Nora saying: "Don't judge!" (Nora is not a character from this book, but from The Original Sinners series.)As I was saying, Julianna longed for a Dom, so when one piqued her interest, Drake arranged for them to meet, but that ended badly. However, something good came out of it - Julianna finally met the man that haunted her dreams.The dreams were a part I found a bit odd, but I loved everything else, so I accepted this, too. Julianna and Mika were meant to be, but them getting to the point where they could finally accept that wasn't exactly easy -- Mika was still grieving, and Julianna was stubborn, and had decided to give up submission -- but I loved every step in their journey. It was emotional, it was hot, it was even fun. “Who am I?”“Why, you’re the great and powerful Oz, Master.”I'm making it official: Julianna is one of my favorite subs I've read about!This was the kind of BDSM I'd like to read more about. I believe the book said the author was quite experienced in the lifestyle, and that showed. Hopefully, I'll find the time to read the other books in the series soon, and if I'm very lucky find more books like this.

    I'm waffling between 3.5 & 4 stars here so I just rounded up. I enjoyed this book. I just bought it basically because of the cover. This author seems fairly well versed in the BDSM lifestyle & I think this is the intro to a series about the Doms of a club called Genesis is some unknown city a la Cherise Sinclair. I like this author's writing style better than Ms. Sinclair's. It's more cerebral but still comparable to the level of smut contained in CS's books.The protagonist is a bit whiny for me. I don't hate her or anything but the hole insecure/waffling/whimpering/simpering/sobbing/teary-eyed thing gets a little old after awhile. Good secondary characters that you actually come to care about i.e. Drake, Trevor & Sammie. All of which I'm hoping get their own books. I think the next up in the series focuses on a triad of Dylan, Nick & Savannah. Meow.I'm not sure I entirely felt Mika & Julianna's intensity as quickly as it was written but it wasn't completely out in left field. least not on Mika's part. Julianna's is a little harder to swallow but when coupled with her desperation I guess it isn't. Whatevs, I still read the next one.Fairly good dialogue; can be cheesy at times but I still found overall I enjoyed the book.

    "I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."This is the first in a series, and does a good job of setting the scene and identifying the key characters in the Club. This is Emerald (aka Julianna's ) story, although through her we are introduced to the leading players at the Club. Once we get to meet the biggest player, the race is on to get things straightened out, and on course. I felt greatly aggrieved for Julianna, but she seemingly chooses to forgive and enjoy how things work out. The steamy scenes may be best read away from a public place - unless that is one of your kinks!After reading many, many such books, I think this one does a good job of neither being too trite, too condescending or too serious. I have some issues with the writing style, but the story was strong enough to keep me reading. I have the next book lined up on my Kindle.

    *I received a free copy to read & review for Wicked Reads Review Team*I was totally expecting the "normal" BDSM club type book, but am happy to say this book wasn't that!Emerald is an unattached submissive who spends most of her free time at Genesis, a BDSM club. She's actively hunting and hoping for a Dom to come in and swoop her off her feet: this is where the similarities end (to the "regular" club books I've read). Personally, I liked Emerald from the 1st page and wanted to read her story. She's sassy, independent, kind, and she was easy to identify with. Her journey of submission was a struggle, but at the same time it was liberating. The secondary characters were also like-able, and I'd like to read more about them (Drake and Trevor, Sammie, Savannah and Nick and Dylan, etc). There are paranormal aspects that I didn't really like, but they added to the story - so I can't say they were unnecessary. I can say the over-use of "girl" was unnecessary, I find it hard to believe that of 3-4 different people that speak to Emerald - EVERYONE refers to her as "girl". The other aspect that bothered me, well, I don't want to spoil the story, but I have an issue with a major plot line. (Once you read this, I'll be glad to discuss by message)This story was FULL of angst, emotional turmoil, glimpses of romance, and infuriating evil. The sex is scorching, the Dom/sub dynamic is hot, and I WILL definitely be reading more about Genesis.3.5 stars

    I am soooo sorry that I let this book sit on my kindle for over a year before I was finally able to read it.Jenna Jacob is an amazing writer, pulling you in and sucking you down until you're consumed with the desire to keep reading. Then your emotions are high and you're eager for the bliss of satisfaction and surrender.Reading Emerald's story brought smiles, laughter, love, tears of joy, frustration, and sadness. The story will strangle you and then blissfully release you. Highly recommend this book and I can't wait to dive into book 2!

    I liked this book by the female MC annoyed me on so many occasions. Her indecisiveness really got on my nerves. I mean for somebody who had been in the lifestyle that long you'd think she'd know a good thing when she saw it.

    Spoilers below.Do you have Spanish speaking family? This reads like novelas. Lord help us. There is SO MUCH drama! Which was kind of good so I made it like 3/4 of the way through this book but finally enough was enough. Let's go:1. Girl talks to ghosts?2. Guy talks to ghosts...3. So much telling and not showing. Uggghhh.4. TRIGGERING SEXUAL ASSAULT SCENE.5. So after this girl gets assaulted by a stranger so seriously that she needs stitches, she goes home with and allows a stranger to spend the night in her bed. 6. Super awkward monologue where dude talks to his dead ghost wife lady about sending him his new lover. Uhh.7. Lots of super awkward monologues. 8. A common theme throughout the book is people telling the main characterREMEMBER WHO YOU AREwhich I obviously had no choice but to hear in Mufasa's voice.9. Dude gets shot and the main character tells him to die and go hang out with his dead ghost wife lady. That's pretty much where I checked out. DNF.

    50 shades of... Wait, what?Let's be clear. Overall, we read books like this for loads of hot, kinky sex. (Rawr). Sex wise, this book is smoking hot. Primarily M\f, with some M\m action as a side piece. Context of the sex? Giant, throbbing WTF filled with cream and boiling seed. (Note: these words belong in cookbooks, not BDSM novels). Insanely aroused shortly after true medical emergencies? Back door play within hours of being cut by rusty razor blades requiring stitches? That gives an entirely new, improbable meaning to pain sl#$. The plot, oh the plot... Girl really, really longs to be a sub to The One despite being abused by The Last One. She dreams of The Next One and a woman guiding her to him. And it happens! (Swoon!). While she's being abused by someone else. They fall into mad, passionate lust, followed by collaring, the pr0n equivalent of a wedding. Please don't get me started on the fantasy dungeon complete with state of the art security system, because really?

    4.5 StarsI could not put this book down, however the only thing that held me back from a 5 Star rating is the (view spoiler)[ odd supernatural dead love stalking everyone's dreams (hide spoiler)] and that I was left wanting more. All in all, I really did enjoy this book, and look forward to more books by this author.

    This was a freebie read picked for me in a group. It was an average read. Julianna/Emerald is an unattached submissive that works and hangs out at a BDSM club. She's stubborn, smart mouthed, yet lacks confidence and thinks that a dom will never want her. She's also plagued by an experience early on in the lifestyle.Julianna has been haunted by a continual dream with a male & female where "Fanny Frustration", as she has named her, tells her to "find him - find my one". An unfortunate event leads her to him but he has a past as well that keeps them apart. This is their story of finding their love for each other. Wasn't a huge fan of the insta-love between them. I needed more time to connect with their relationship. The book did keep me reading, minimal errors, and a standalone read with no cliffhangers.

    BDSM, anal play, m/f, m/m, dubious consent152 pagesEmbracing My SubmissionAuthor; Jenna JacobWhat would you do if you dreamed of the perfect Dom and were never able to find him in reality? What if you had trained for years to be a submissive, only to find the isolation impossible to bear? Julianna dreams every night of her dream Dom and wakes to the loneliness of her reality. Becoming a sub was not what she expected. After being hurt by one in experienced Dom, she falls for another, only to be subjected to cruel torture before her protector can come and rescue her. With him, though, is the Dom she has been dreaming of for years. Sir Drool, in the flesh. This story captured my attention on the first page. Julianna has a voice that resonates with any strong willed woman trying to find her place. In her world, that is being a submissive. Open mouth, insert foot is a common affliction of mine and I had to laugh out loud every time Julianna found herself in just that predicament. Lonely and trying so hard to be the perfect submissive, Julianna finds herself in the middle of a sadist bent on destroying her, but is saved by her protector and the man she has been dreaming of for years. The story spins into a powerful passion play of love, forgiveness and tenderness that had me turning the pages late into the night to find out what happened next. Drake, Trevor, Julianna and Mika are all characters with breathable characteristics and I felt like they were my friends by the time the book was over. The drama was unpredictable, the tensions palpable, chemistry undeniable and the little humorous points interjected here and there make the story absolutely perfect. We haven't even gotten to the sex scenes yet.The club scene was right on, as were the interactions between Drake, the protector and his slave/lover Trevor. Julianna and Mika were the perfect match as well as we journey with them into the hesitation of a new relationship and beyond. Author Jenna Jacobs explains much of what happens in BDSM dynamics for the reader who may be unfamiliar with the lifestyle and illuminates Master/slave and Dominant/submissive roles. The sex is smoking hot and you are going to need some ice water. Lots of it!I loved every page of this book, even the parts that had me cringing in horror. There is a scene where Julianna is attacked by the sadist she mistakenly thinks is a potential Dom. It can be a trigger if you have been a victim of sexual violence. It is powerful but so is the aftermath, and reading through it is worthwhile, even if it leaves you shuddering and crying like it did me. Flashbacks are a bitch, but Jenna Jacobs has done a superb job on this first book in the series and I am anxious to read the next one. This book is 5 stars all the way! If you want a book that will have you sweating bullets and turning the pages, you have to give Embracing My Submission a read. You won't regret it.5/5

    Julianna, Emerald as she is known as at Club Genesis, has decided to return to the submissive world after a terrible experience with a want-to-be Dom. She has been guided by her close friend and father-figure Daddy Drake. She has been longing for four long years about finding her perfect Dom. She even has dreams with what this perfect Dom would look like. Emerald finally finds the Dom she thinks is perfect; until she spends time with him alone. Mica, secret owner of Genesis has had his eye on Emerald for several years. Mica is forced to reveal himself to Emerald but then fights his feelings toward her as a result a promise to his dead wife. Embracing My Submission follows Mica and Julianna/Emerald’s story.The overall story in Embracing My Submission was okay at best but it seemed like the book went on and on and on with no ending is site. The characters were hot and cold and all over the place. I felt the vocabulary was atrocious. If I never see anything about “her womanly emissions” or “womanly fluids” again it will be too soon.

    Embracing my Submission (The Doms of Genesis #1) by Jenna Jacob5 starsM/F BDSM RomanceTriggers: Death, abuse, non-consensual playI was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.Emerald (Julianna) is searching - she's searching for her submission and someone to guide her in the lifestyle that calls to her.Drake is a wonderful protector, but he sometimes, holds on too tight. This is where the story really takes hold. Mika owns Genesis. He is a businessman and a friend, but he is also looking for someone to close the gaping hole in his heart. Jacob writes such emotion in to this story, I found tears streaming down my cheeks several times throughout the story. You can really feel Emerald's despair, hurt and anger, her acceptance and love too. With Mika, you can feel his struggle and confusion.This was a great start to a series that I hope will be just as good.

    I read this in one sitting, it was good, really good. For a long time I was looking for a book in this genre that surprised me and with this I found it.What I like was that it wasn't just sex and BDSM, it was much more. I was about love, finding your self. And it has a little bit of paranormal aspects to it.My problems and the reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 were toward the ending, the relationship developed a little to fast for my liking and the main female character was a little annoying and page after page had some problem. I absolutely loved some of the qualities that Mika has.

    Fascinating BDSM novelThis was the first book I read by Jenna Jacobs last year but not the last. She has a way of developing her characters and their relationships that pull you in. Emma and Micha seem an unlikely couple yet as time goes on, trust so necessary in any relationship, but especially a D/s grows. Happily they realize they are meant for one another. The secondary characters were also interesting and I look forward to their stories.

    Is it hot in here or what? Oh man, the last 10%...WOW. *coughs*Anyway...I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a quick but very satisfying read. The story had some weird moments and quite a few twists and turns, but was overall entertaining.Julianna and Mika together were scorching! The authors knowledge of the lifestyle was on point for a change and I'm looking forward to read some more about the Club Genesis.

    I agree with the person that said they couldn't get engaged with the characters. As soon as I would feel like I was getting into the book a little, a switch would flip and it would go in a different direction. I wasn't into the paranormal part of the book either. I really wanted to love this book, just couldn't get there!

    I loved this book. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Emerald is a submissive at a BDSM Club and doesn't have a Dominant. She keeps having the same dream about a woman who looks like her and a beautiful Dom. Without giving too much away, there are twists and turns in this story (some very emotional). I'll definitely be reading on in this series.

    This is a tough review to write. I quite enjoyed the beginning of book, but I could not get into the main characters and didn't buy their connection. The supernatural element to this book was also a bit odd. The writing is quite good, though, and I can see the potential of this author for future books. This one was just a bit mixed bag for me.

    Alright this review is a bit difficult to write. I really wanted to like this story, I really did. But so many things didn't make sense. Brace yourselves and stop reading if you don't want to be spoiled. Like, right now. Now.****- Ok, why are soooo many people calling Emerald "girl". Just because she is a sub doesn't mean everybody should refer to her that way. The over-use of that word killed the mood several times.- I see other reviews complaining about the short time it took Emerald between being assaulted and spending the night with Mica. I won't judge that because depending on the person, we all have different reactions, coping mechanisms and recovery time. She felt safe with him and felt like she'd known him for years (which was kind of the case)- While I don't mind throwing a little bit of paranormal in there, it has to be done right. I mean, the dead wife is like the answer to ALL the problems, and that didn't sit well with me. Emerald losing the sub part of herself? Dead wife is there to give a dream to get her back on track.Mica doesn't want to give into his desire for Emerald because his dead wife was "the one and only" BOOM dead wife scolds him while he's unconscious. And at the same time gives a lecture about his dad. Because of course the dad also needed a sub.- Speaking of the dad, I know the new girlfriend has sub tendencies but she took a little bit too quickly to it. Also, how super weird and problematic is it that Mica grew up with his mom being his dad's slave and him being completely aware of it?? I'll tell you. It is super super super problematic. - The speed of recovery of both Emerald and Mica is so unrealistic I can't begin to get into it.- The amount of time it takes Emerald to get ready for anal play is also a great joke.So, yeah. I wanted to like the book. But these points just couldn't be overlooked.

    I was totally surprised by how much I liked this one and really not sure why I left it sit on my kindle for so long before picking it up. I think it was more to do with the whole dreaming of this one Dominate and then fate intervened thing that kinda had me dragging my feet to read it. And yes that part seemed odd to me but it was a consistent theme throughout the book and I think the author wove that part of the story-line in there nicely, it was a bit cheesy for me but not over the top. Julianna (Emerald) is a submissive without a Dom. She has spent the better part of the past five years learning all that she can to be the best submissive but it never seems to be good enough (to her that is.) She is under the protection of Drake, who has his own submissive Trevor. I loved these two guys, their relationship with each other and the connection and love that they had for Julianna and her for them was prefect. Often times you read books that have bdsm in them and it seems a bit tame or the rules just don’t seem to align very well, but no in this one. I felt that it was a pretty fair representation to what a person or persons may experience in the lifestyle and in a club. I loved how sassy and independent Julianna was but also how very much she desired to please and serve her Dom. Her desire to do so did get her into a bit of trouble which had my stomach turning in knots for her. Although she does experience some trauma/drama that situation is the catalyst to bringing her dream Dom into her life. And oh what an experience that was. I could go on and on about this book and the characters but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone so suffice it to say that this is a good one to pick up and read especially if you're in a book slump this one may be just the thing to bring you out of it.

    I love Jenna and her books. I have read the first couple books in this series before but I am reading them again. This book is about Emerald is a submissive but she doesn’t have a Dom. She has a protector and someone who helps her learn to embrace that part of herself. She has been having dreams of a Dom meant just for her but she has never meet him in real life. She is desperate to find a Dom to love her and to love back. This desperation leads her to a dangerous situation. Which leads her to find the Dom from her dreams. But things aren’t as easy as just finding him. There is more to the story and now Emerald must find her inner strength. Things get difficult before they get easier. Will Emerald and her dream Dom be able to work things out or will she give up on her submission? This story is so amazing and moving. Emerald and her dream Dom go through so much. Emerald grows so much throughout the book. I felt for Emerald at times. I wanted to cry with her for what she was going through. All the characters in this series and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I will be rereading this one as well. I love this series and I could reread it a million times. I highly recommend not only this book/series but any book by Jenna.
