Book Review- To Serve is Divine by R.E. Hargrave

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review :)

This book is full of BDSM, Male on male, and threesome action, if this is not your kind of read , then I suggest not reading it . With that said Let's get to my review .

Book Blurb :

Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can’t for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club.

Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club’s board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub – a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?

Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn’t, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, un-collared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?

Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it’s not in their contract?

I loved the Characters in this book .

Catherine a Submissive who was in the hands of a rude, uncaring Dom , who abused her and did whatever he wanted with her without a thought about her or her feelings . She escapes him when He dies ( I wont tell you how it comes out in the book) . A yr Later she NEEDS to get back into the life of being a Submissive and does some internet research and decides to go to an Open-night event at a the local BDSM Club Dungeons and Dreams. As she is standing in line waiting to get in she feels an electrical charge and looks up to see a Dark Handsome man at the door who is going in . they Make eye contact and she immediately puts her eyes to the ground .

Jayden , Hot, Alpha Sexy , Caring, Dom . Only he does not have just one Submissive , he has 2 at the moment and partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, un-collared, regular submissives.Until he see's Catherine .

The relationship they start to createis full of patience and care he extends to her helps heal her soul just a little bit every session. ridding her of her demons . Until she’s done confessing every detail of abuse from her last … Dom the abuser!

As the relationship between these two progress over the months Jayden is finding that he is having feelings for Catherine he never thought he would have or wanted to have with one person . he has collared her in the first week of being together ( something he has NEVER done before) but he is finding there are lots of things he has never done before with Catherine. Could Jayden be falling in Love with his submissive ? Could Catherine have fallen in love with Jayden and not told him her feelings ?

I did not realize at the time of starting this book it was a trilogy , with the next book due out in August . Although we get an Epilogue with this one as well as the first chapter of Book 2 it still leaves you with unanswered questions and wanting more NOW ...

Thank you R.E. For the opportunity to read and review this great Book and I look forward to reading more about Jayden and Catherine in the next one .
