No Ordinary Love Story is the follow up to the phenomenally popular The Diary of a Submissive. In the first book, we learned how Sophie discovered her submissive side and then started to explore it.
In this book, we find out what happened next. Sophie’s previous D/s relationship didn’t work out and she’s feeling hurt and vulnerable. So when her friends not-so-subtly set her up with someone with tendencies that compliment hers, she’s not impressed. Nor is Adam, the guy she’s been set up with. However, following a brief conversation about their awkward meeting, the two of them end up chatting – innocently at first, but before long it’s moved onto something much more intimate.
What I most enjoyed about The Diary of a Submissive was its honesty. It was a bare all look at the life of a submissive, and this book is no different. It’s open, it’s honest, and it’s an eye-opener both in terms of giving an even deeper insight into submission and what it involves – for some people, at least, as not all D/s relationships are the same – and how this kind of relationship can work alongside a “normal” life that involves friends, family, jobs and so on.
I was intrigued by Sophie’s continuing journey and how much she learnt about herself and her kinks along the way. I very much admire her bravery and ability to trust, and would definitely read more of the same from her skilled pen. D/s may not be up everyone’s street, but certainly from the perspective of someone that writes erotic fiction, this book was an education as well as entertainment.
