Book Review: Diary of a Submissive
Diary of a Submissive by Sophie Morgan is not a book for most souls. Trust me when I say this. It is not for the light hearted. Why? Well, it's basically a diary about the down and dirty. Literally. I read this book after reading 50 Shades of Grey, and I have to say, Diary of a Submissive may be a more non-fictional version of it. Would I say this was up to par with 50 Shades? Probably not. It was missing the page turner, the story, the whole falling in love part. I don't want details of everything, I want the bigger picture.
Without going too deep into the book, I did find it interesting how Morgan finds out about her fascination and unexpected love for submission. That's about it. Keep in mind, this is a book categorized as "erotica." I found myself flipping the book over when it was on the counter in fear of people judging me at work for reading such a book in public. Hey, it's just words, people. Everyone's intrigued, regardless if they'd like to admit it or not.
All in all, it's a quick read. I finished it in a day. Morgan is a great author and a great writer. I loved her style of writing and I will give her credit for the easy flow of the story.
