    ... he wanted her to succeed tonight, He wanted to show her that submission wasn't a trial, but a joy. In Six Signs of Submission Claire Thompson has produced a wonderful love story where the romantic connection between the couple is just as relevant as the emerging kink one is. The book was totally captivating and I only wish it was longer, so I could have spent more time with Lainey and Cooper.

In Six Signs of Submission Claire Thompson has produced a wonderful love story where the romantic connection between the couple is just as relevant as the emerging kink one is. The book was totally captivating and I only wish it was longer, so I could have spent more time with Lainey and Cooper. I couldn't put it down, this pair totally captured me with their delicate dance into BDSM and with how Cooper didn't bulldoze over Lainey's trepidation and worries because "he knew her needs better than she did" or because "he knew what she needed". Whilst Cooper may have believed Lainey was a submissive, he took her hand and let her gently down the path of self discovery, rather than strapping her down and rushing her headlong into something she wasn't ready for. Whilst this contained one of my most disliked tropes, instalove , the rest of the story was just so damn brilliant that I'm going to totally overlook it. Especially as the author did such an amazing job of conveying their thoughts, feelings and emotions in such a way that I could actually buy into it. Lainey is a strong, independent woman who isn't sure if she is submissive or not, indeed she fights against using that particular label. Cooper frequently has to work hard for Lainey's submission, actually encouraging her NOT to pin a name on their dynamic, but rather to just be in the moment with him. I very much admired how this pair were portrayed. I found myself frequently on tenterhooks, waiting for the moment where Lainey caved like a souffle and became a slave to her Master, because that seems to be what ALWAYS happens when the female starts off as a tough cookie. The Dom only has to lift his eyebrow and this once self-sufficient female gives up most of her personality, in order to worship at the heroes feet. So I could worship at the feet of Claire Thompson that she chose not to buy into this tired and, for me, unwelcome trope. Instead Lainey retained her strength and freedom of choice. Reaching down, he stroked her soft cheek and tucked a tendril of hair behind her ear. He was touched by her willingness to trust him, despite the naked vulnerability in her eyes. Silently, he promised himself to be worthy of that trust. Indeed she frequently used inner monologues and conversations to convey deeper messages about BDSM and the dynamic of the relationship, along with how unique it is to every couple. There was a wonderful conversation between submissives where they discussed how all of them struggle at one time or another. In fact one of them refused to be identified as a submissive, referring to herself as a sexual masochist. A term that was fully accepted by her Dom. I loved this reinforcement of how there isn't one set way to be in a D/s or BDSM relationship, it felt very refreshing. My first impression was that the hero was going to be an arrogant, pushy Dom. I was as wrong as could be on that score. Cooper's thought processes were also very effectively used to show us what a responsible, caring and most of all respectful Dominant he was. "I know this is scary for you. Letting go is scary. But it's what you want - what we both crave. If I'm wrong - if I'm totally off base and just being a bully, tell me that now and I'll back off. But he didn't have a condom with him, and he hadn't wanted to presume by bringing one along that morning. Nor had they discussed sex beforehand, and he didn't feel it was gentlemanly to take advantage of her arousal in the heat of the moment. he added softly, "Please, Lainey. Give me the gift of your submission. I promise to cherish it. I promise to keep you safe." She stared at him for several more beats. He held his breath, barely daring to admit to himself how much this mattered. And when Lainey did offer her submission it felt very much a considered decision rather than her mindlessly being led by her libido. The icing on the cake was that Cooper didn't throw Lainey in at the deep end. They slowly explored BDSM, the pace realistic, the scenes sexy and hot but not extreme. Don't get me wrong, I love a boundary pushing kink scene, but not when it's only the second time a submissive has ever taken part in a scene. It's unrealistic and leaves a sour taste. Submissive training - of which this evening's experiment was the first step, though he didn't want to scare her away by laying it ous as such - was not about playing with a sub's head in a particular scene to get your own rocks off. Quite the opposite - it was a purposeful and mindful building of a new way of thinking and behaving, built slowly, with subtlety and care. With each surrender of her self-will and control, Lainey was offering him the gift of her submission. He wanted that gift to come from a place of knowledge and strength, freely given.

    This is a story about the evolution of a relationship that started out with an instant and compelling attraction. Cooper is an experienced Dom visiting Desire Island following the sale of his company, he is decompressing and Lainey has an immediate impact on him, trouble is she doesn’t think she has a submissive bone in her body, Connor thinks otherwise and sets out to prove it. Cooper is a patient man and gently but firmly shows Lainey how the pleasure pain is a part of her she should embrace.

Lainey’s journey is a metamorphosis and at one point she expresses that she feels like she is shedding her skin. This is a quick read but not a super sweet story, it is romantic and sexy and the epilogue is lovely.

Cooper see's all of her submissive tells and takes her on a journey to discover herself and allow herself to be set free by embracing her submissive side. A sensual tale of discovery, self acceptance and erotic play, with D/s, bondage, impact and sensory play. These two are blazing hot, I loved their journey as Lainey discovers what has been missing in her life. The author does a great job sharing the emotions they work through while scening, I wish we'd seen more of their emotional connection outside of the bedroom.

Claire Thompson expertly captures the exciting and confusing newness of entering the world of BDSM. You can feel Lainey’s inner turmoil and struggle to overcome and reconcile her conflicting emotions. Is she as strong as she thinks she is? Is she strong enough to admit and accept her underlying inner submissive? Is Cooper the one and only Dominant that can guide her through? I’m not telling, no spoilers here! I will tell you this though, you will absolutely love their slow burning, sexy, soul searching, journey!

Slowly and ever so carefully Cooper and her girlfriends on the Island are helping Lainey to discover her own desires. Her mind objects to the word “submissive,” while her heart and her soul reach out for the fulfillment to be found. Cooper is ever so gently helping her to experiment with erotic pain and pleasure encased within her own being. As with all Claire Thompson’s writing, I highly recommend this book. It is full of attraction, caring, and especially erotic experiences.

    What I love about this series is that you can’t predict how things will go. Each book brings it’s own unique flavor. Lainey and Cooper’s story is about how a submissive raises above negative preconceived notions on D/s to find herself. It’s about a Dom who’s willing to give up his plans, and devote himself to a gal who’s not sure she wants to face the truth about herself. But I totally love the romantic twist of this story.

    This was a wonderful story about a woman who is figuring things out. Lainey had always thought of herself in one way, strong, independent, competitive, and because of that, never considered she could also be submissive. In her mind, the two just didn’t go together. Cooper sees that Lainey is all those things, and submissive, and he is willing to work with her to explore her submissive side. What neither expected was the speed, strength, and depth of the emotional bond that grew between them as t This was a wonderful story about a woman who is figuring things out.

Sexy with feelings, this story is a great BDSM love story <3

    A new book in the Desire Island series. You don’t have to have read the previous books to get the full enjoyment of the story. The story focuses on Lainey and Connor, both of them are new to the Island. Connor is an experienced DOM, but Lainey is a novice and she isn’t even sure if she is a submissive, but Lainey never backs out of a challenge and she isn’t about to start now. A whole new world opens for Lainey, a world that is scary and exciting. The BDSM scenes are very well written and while in A new book in the Desire Island series.

It is sweet, romantic and sexy.

    I love the way Claire Thompson has brought Lainey and Cooper together on Desire Island. Cooper suspects Lainey is a natural submissive and he takes the time to awaken that part of her with great patience. Lainey took a job on the Island teaching the vanilla side of strength and exercis but has never taken part any any of the BDSM side of things. When Cooper takes part in her class there is an instant attraction and gradually Lainey allows Cooper to open her eyes and mind to another world and lif I love the way Claire Thompson has brought Lainey and Cooper together on Desire Island.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Claire Thompson’s “Six Signs of Submission” is a incredibly sexy read! It was my first book in the Desire Island Series that I now will need to go read the other 5. The instant connection between the two main characters you felt through a voyeurs perspective! Lainey is such a strong competitive young woman but she has met her match in Cooper an experienced Dom. The chemistry pulls her to him but her own independence tries to resist. As we know great Dom’s can read a Sub’s mind and Cooper does in Claire Thompson’s “Six Signs of Submission” is a incredibly sexy read!

    This is the sixth book in the Desire Island series and like all of the other books in the series I really enjoyed reading it. This story is the journey of Lainey, a fitness instructor and Cooper, a Dom on vacation. Claire weaves a great tale of how Cooper (with the help of other island submissives) patiently shows Lainey her true nature as a submissive. This is a standalone but once you read one book in the series you will want to read them all.

    I absolutely enjoyed this story because it contained kink but it dealt with a woman who had never personally tried BDSM things and didn't think she was a submissive. I loved both Cooper and Lainey and thought they had such an amazing connection with each other. I appreciate Claire Thompson showing the questions and fears about figuring out if BDSM is a kink for you and if you are a submissive. The story had me captivated until the very end and I can't wait for the next story by Claire Thompson.

    A comfortable love story, without all the tense, edge of your seat, waiting on pins and needles. Lainey may have been distant mentally, for awhile, but she never phisically ran away. I really appritiated that. I was able to fully submerge myself in the story. It made me feel more invested in the story and the characters themselves. I received an ARC in exchange for my voluntary and honest review.

    Loved this installment. Lainey has been interested in BDSM and gets a job as a fitness instructor on the island. She has been there a month when she meets Cooper, a guest. They get along well and start doing small scenes together. She was raised with brothers and thinks you have to be strong all the time. All her friends on the island are trying to tell her she is submissive, but she doesn't believe them. See how much fun Cooper and Lainey have finding out together.

    What do you do with a submissive who won’t believe she’s submissive? You work with her until she believes it. At least that’s what Cooper thinks will work for Lainey. I love Desire Island, but I this is my favorite in the series so far. There are scenes in the story that you will fall into like Alice down the rabbit hole and never want to return. Claire Thompson has written a perfect story. I hope there’s another Desire Island coming very soon.
