    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review Alexis Alvarez never fails to impress me with her character development and her ability to take you to the brink of pain and ecstasy with just the lash of a belt or a muffled whimper If you are looking for a spicy read with a director of a play and his talented and defiant actress, look no further Alexis Alvarez keeps readers hanging on to every word and fascinated by every flying spark that ignites between Cleo and Axel Cleo Martinelli is playing a role involving kink that she has never indulged in Little does she know that she herself will get to experience than just a taste of this life and will learn that submission has nothing to do with weakness I loved Cleo s spunky, feminist side that was always there to push Axel s buttons and roll her eyes and use that smart mouth to drive him crazy Every time she would get a little sassy, I would rub my hands in glee because I knew what was comingin ways than one Axel Masters knows how to get the blood pumping to both sets of Cleo s cheeks and kept my heart palpitating and wondering what he was going to do next to get Cleo to surrender to him By the end of His Firm Direction, Axel had me completely wrung of emotions from anger to madly in love with him He knew how to keep not only the whole cast in line but give Cleo a firm hand when she needed it Alexis Alvarez delivers another palm scorching, bed sheet twisting read I highly recommend His Firm Direction for a romance with lots of heat and plenty of kinky action Alexis delivers an Oscar worthy performance with this couple that keeps readers hot and bothered and blushing from beginning to end If you are a lover of romance that involve that extra sting then Alexis Alvarez is the author for you I adore her sense of humor, her amazing characters, and the heat coming off of each page is indescribable

    I m not a big fan of BDSM, but something about the way that Alexis Alvarez writes it is different The chemistry of the relationship and fluidity of the power in the relationship is well written and keeps a reader on their toes Consent is always clear, and the participants are adults Alvarez explores the relationship between Axel, former professional skier turned director of a controversial play, and lead actress Cleo in her most recent release Though it s written in 3rd person, you get information about Cleo s inner thoughts, feelings, and life outside of the theater than Axel I would have liked to have learned about Axel s background life personality outside of the director s chair and bedroom,but I don t think the lack of this information detracted from the book True to her style, Alvarez includes random facts and real places in her books, which are like Easter eggs fun to find Her trademark wit and humor are displayed as well, through banter and some funny bff conversations.

    I am not a big fan of BDSM however, I love earlier books by Alexis Alvarez After reading His Firm Direction my feelings about the subject have changed I loved this book Alvarez has a real knack for making her leading men so sexy they seem to step off the page She displays this skill again with Axel Masters Strong and masterful, there is an underlying soft side that is hinted at throughout Even when he is disciplining Cleo Martinelli he shows concern for her wellbeing and her pleasure It s easy to imagine a director and his leading lady becoming intimately involved, especially when the play is so sexually charged Alvarez handles their burgeoning relationship realistically and delicately Axel has obviously been in a painful love relationship that left him wounded than he cares to admit What s sexier than a man who hides his fragility Cleo has just come out of a less than stellar relationship herself They are both primed for sparks to fly, and fly they do Even as they do the eternal dance of teasing and testing the waters, the attraction they feel for one another virtually leaps off the pages There is the inevitable jealous female, always attempting to derail both the romance as well as wrest the starring role away from Cleo Cleo has a fascinating BFF, a doctor who indulges in set design as a hobby Laska has a story of her own married to a doctor she is experiencing difficulties in her marriage Her admission of kinky behavior with her husband makes Cleo s foray in submissiveness believable If her professional best friend sees nothing wrong with a little spanking, it can t be all wrong Cleo s biggest obstacle to submitting to Axel is her fierce independence and feminism It presents the greatest difficulty in performing the role of Anna in the play Anna is a sub and Cleo has reservations about that With Axel s guidance, she finds that being submissive is in fact Anna s choice She is not abused or forced to allow husband Aaron to dominate her She enjoys it As with all good romances, there are problems to overcome Misunderstandings are expected and believably delivered While the language and sexual activity in this book is definitely for mature readers, it is a fun love story I was cheering for Cleo and Axel from beginning to end Once again Alexis Alvarez has delivered an enthralling story of romance and adult situations that make me look at BDSM and think, maybe

    If you ve read Alexis Alvarez s books before, you ll notice a theme in her writing She s a great storyteller and world builder, but in her erotic books, you ll have to accept that there will be a whole lot of spanking going on These books seem to center around this element and are focused on the woman being curious but hesitant as well as aroused by the possibilities and mortified by her need to experience this kink In my opinion, this book has been her best in conveying the true nature of this practice as well as developing the relationship between her characters I enjoyed the story behind the kink in this one Cleo and Axel were an interesting, passionate, and perfect pair I loved how their relationship grew from director actress, or rather teacher student, into something much sensual It was fascinating watching their transformations.My ongoing issue with these books is the woman s lack of true submission and her constant arguing with her partner Even though they aren t true D s relationships, I feel like there should be some elements of submission I also struggle with the aggressiveness of the kink at the beginning I kinda feel like there should be a gradual increase in severity of the punishments Instead, they immediately jump into it as if she s an experienced sub I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.

    Meet Axel, a hot and well known director and playwright, and Cleo, an aspiring actress They are a sizzling hot match with lots of filthy, panty melting talks Their story is very complex on so many levels It is full of passion and warmth On some parts you might believe that you are reading a handbook for kinky sex, or, on other parts, a handbook about how to perform properly on stage But there is also so much interaction between the both protagonists, so many raw emotions and so much drama and misunderstandings Throughout the book Cleo is unsure whether Axel is pretending his passion for her to push her to an even better performance in his play or if his feelings are real Axel himself is burnt from an earlier relationship and does not do relationships any longer or so he believes Their relationship is complicated and passionate and you are cheering and hurting with them while reading their story The supporting characters, e.g Laska Cleo s BFF, advisor and goal of her banter and Martin Cleo s partner in the play are also full of life and not only some figures in the shadows.And by the way I have never read a sensual and sexier and poetic description of savoring a cup of coffee This truly is a book you don t want to miss, a real page turner and an absolute must read

    Alexis Alvarez is one of my favorite go to authors for hot, steamy, kinky fun Her stories pop off the pages with beautiful, descriptive writing that makes me feel as if I m in each scene She balances intense emotions with a delightful sense of humor and, best of all, a thorough knowledge of BDSM delivered accurately and responsibly Cleo knows nothing about kink when she s cast as the lead in a play about dominance and submission How hard could it be, right A lot than she figured She needs to get into her role as a submissive and who better to give her direction than her director She s definitely attracted to Axel, but when he steps in to coach her, the lines between acting and real life quickly begin to blur The push and pull going on in the mind of this strong, independent woman when she realizes that sexual domination hits all of her erotic buttons is perfect Ms Alvarez does a fantastic job conveying Cleo s thoughts, feelings, confusion, and uncertainty I love Cleo s smart mouth and argumentative comments She just can t help herself.Axel has met his match in this woman he can t keep his hands off of His Firm Direction is loads of spanky goodness and another winner in my Alexis Alvarez library.

    His Firm Direction by Alexis Alvarez is a hot and erotic story with bdsm elements that Alexis excels in.I felt like this book was much then just your average kink or bdsm book as it dealt with the emotions behind both our lead characters, Axel and Cleos, choices The journey they each made towards each other was interesting, insightful and intense.It was written well and the characters were fun to read especially when they interacted with each other It is told from Cleos perspective and I would have loved to see this story again told from Axels perspective just to get his take on certain events I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

    I can honestly say that I would have read this book for the BDSM scenes alone The author wrote each scene with such detail and such realism, she had me hooked from the prologue She didn t just stop with the smoking hot scenes, the story was equally good I connected with Cleo and Axel from the very beginning They were both flawed characters, but came together perfectly This one was definitely worth five stars.I received an ARC of this book from Stormy Night Publications.

    Smacking good funI love reading about a strong woman who isn t afraid to give voice to her desires Even if those desires are outside the norm Cleo never thought sexual submission would be something a strong woman should crave, Axel never thought sweet Cleo would be the woman that would restore his belief in love They each find something in the other that fulfills and completes them Hot, sweet, steamy, and oh, so sexy

    I loved, loved, loved this book So much tension built up in the first few chapters that kept me wanting to read The story was realistic and really helped explain the BDSM dynamic it is all a game that either person can end at any time Can t wait to read from this author.
