ARC Review: Shades of Submission: Fifty by Fifty #1: Billionaire Romance Boxed Set by Selena Kitt, Amy Aday, P.J. Adams, Arden Aoide, Joanna Blake, Starla Cole, Artemis Hunt, Adriana Hunter, Malia Mallory, Victoria Villeneuve

Received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

3 out of 5 Stars 

The Billionaire's Command by Victoria Villeneuve
3 out of 5 Stars
  • wasn't a lot of D/S 
  • neither resolved their issues
  • he at least seemed to be working towards a resolution
Enslaved by Artemis Hunt
4 out of 5 Stars
  • the language is off putting
  • like the hero gradually getting her used to his touch
  • last ditch flanking action, at least she knows what she is up against
  • HFN
Her Wish, His Command by Malia Mallory
4 out of 5 Stars
  • suspenseful
  • interesting that he is naturally dominant but doesn't feel comfortable being a Dom nor is it a preference
  • even without trying he gives her the domination she needs in the bedroom
  • overall story line wasn't resolved
The Object of His Desire by PJ Adams
1 out of 5 Stars
  • Too much reiteration
  • very confusing with the back and forth
Still Waters by Joanna Blake
5 out of 5 Stars
  • not a lot of BDSM
  • the father's concern is too little, too late
  • glad they were able to save her
  • her mother is criminally neglectful
Her Two Doms by Adrianna Hunter
5 out of 5 Stars
  • love the curvier heroine
  • seamless story progression
  • re-reading this story was a lot of fun
Heidi & the Kaiser by Selena Kitt
3 out of 5 Stars
  • interesting how her mind works, definitely under-utilizing her skills
  • not sure if I liked the hero or not
  • sexually submissive doesn't mean doormat
  • glad the truth came out, go Lenny!

Recommendation: Overall there were some good reads and some not so good reads. Worthwhile to pick up.
