NSFW Book Review: Mistress Managed - Book One by B.J. Frazier






Title: Mistress Managed - Book One

Shelves: Female-dominant, Female-fronted





With its theme of personal discovery, explored across multiple relationships, the first book of Mistress Managed is a captivating read that takes a realistic approach to female empowerment and domination. B.J. Frazier has a flair for characters matched only by their flair for implements of pain and pleasure, and that makes this a compelling read from beginning to end.





Jeneca Avery is a high powered lawyer who has just come out of a divorce with her cheating husband. Hurt by memories of catching him with the maid, and conflicted by her feelings about the power and passion that was on display that day, she begins applying her research skills to learning about BDSM and the power exchange . . . and finds that she's drawn to the idea of being the one in control.





I appreciated the amount of detail Frazier invests in the logistics of the power exchange, detailing how Jeneca goes about finding and vetting submissives, maintaining a professional distance while ensuring the safety of both parties. She's all about consent, using things like safewords and pain scales, and while she expects absolute obedience she's understanding of novice mistakes, being new to the scene herself. We see her exploring crops, nipple clamps, and hot wax, enjoying the act of punishing her submissives and pushing them to their limits. There's a nice balance within her between self-doubt and excitement, and the thrill she gets from men enjoying their submission to her is fantastic.





What makes the story so interesting, what elevates it from just another series of kinky bondage scenes, is her ongoing dialogue with Keegan. An accomplished dominant, he's interested in exploring submissive side with her, but she's reluctant to grant his request. Their back-and-forth exchange through messages and emails provides great insight into both dominant and submissive motivations, and the contrast between this older, more literate, more experienced man and her younger, more impulsive submissives is an interesting one.





Running alongside the erotic story is a legal thriller involving hospital negligence, insurance executives, and mob ties that allows Jeneca an opportunity shine professionally. It's a story of curious twists and turns, and finding out how it plays out is as much of a reason to read books Two and Three as the question of how/how things will play out between Jeneca and Keegan. Smart, sexy, and sincere, this is definitely worth a read.
