Book Review: The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

The Deep End (Honey, #1)

Enter a decadent sensual world where gorgeous alpha males are pleasure slaves committed to fulfilling a woman's every desire. At the elite Honey club, no boundary will be left untested, and one's darkest desires will become a sensual reality.
Olivier isn’t sure what he’s gotten himself into when he joins the Honey Club, only that a dark part of him craves the lifestyle offered by this secret, exclusive club.
When Amèlie invites Olivier to surrender, she pushes him to explore his deepest desires as a submissive. As they grow closer and find themselves falling harder than either of them anticipated, the truth about Olivier’s past could threaten the budding relationship they both long for.
Gripping and seductive, The Deep End is the first book in a sensational new series from bestselling author Kristen Ashley.

I am a huge KA fan. She writes about alpha males like no one's business. When I initially read the premise of The Deep End truthfully I felt conflicted. I wasn't sure how the queen of alpha males was going to move onto male subs. Happily I can say she found a way of giving us both, a man who is all alpha with submissive sexual predilections. The combination creates an intense sexual chemistry between a Dominatrix and her sub. 

Amelie Helene Strand is a Dominatrix. She frequents the Honey club, an exclusive BDSM club. She wasn't finding what she needed, in play or in life until Olivier Hawkes appears at the club. 

Olivier is still new to the BDSM lifestyle and with some help from friends he finds his way into the Honey club. After playing with Mistress Amelie he finds himself in way over his head. 

Olivier is Amelie's beast, chevalier, alpha-sub. They have a strong sexual connection but their relationship does not come easy. Amelie is very protective of her heart, she's been hurt in the past. Olivier has a temper that gets him in trouble. At times they are two stubborn alphas bunting heads which leads to misunderstandings.

Olivier is a twist on the male sub, he's an alpha-sub. I wouldn't call him a sub but rather a man who enjoys sexually submitting. He's not submissive rather he enjoys submitting. Even then there are times he takes charge sexually. I enjoyed the kink and there was plenty of kinkery. The story is KA at heart but she has definitely went in a new direction. 4 Stars.
