Book Blurb:
The question: "Would you like to try BDSM with me?"

Elizabeth Kemp never thought she'd ask friend and colleague, Preston Lancaster to be her submissive. Even more surprising, he agrees – on one condition: she has to return the favor. Her two weeks as his Domme ends with a dramatic climax she wasn't prepared for – she's hopelessly in love and terrified he'll break her heart.

Dr. Preston Lancaster has been in love with Elizabeth since the day they met. His two weeks with her are more than he ever imagined, but when the tables are turned, she refuses to make good on her promise to reciprocate. Preston isn't giving up without a fight, but he's not fighting for two weeks of dominance anymore. He's fighting for forever.

Can Preston convince Elizabeth that her heart is safe with him – or will two weeks be all he has?


Reviewers Note: Yours, For Now is an Adult/Erotic Romance with light light BDSM play and is written by Siren Allen. I received this eARC from Entranced Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

The Review:

Yours, For Now is an enticing, romantic story about two best friends who finally come together to experience more. I enjoyed this read and the characters. The dialogue had a few problems and some of the plot points were a bit confusing, but overall, this one made me smile and swoon!

Dr. Elizabeth Kemp has had her eye on her best friend, Preston, since the moment she met him at residence. But because of her traumatic childhood which followed her into her adulthood and her first relationship, she doesn’t trust love and she sure doesn’t trust men. However, that hasn’t stopped her from wanting or craving Preston even though he’s never showed more than a friendship interest in her. Deciding to throw out a line and see what she catches, she takes a chance and acts on her desires, asking him the one question sure to get his attention.

"Would you like to try BDSM with me?"

Dr. Preston Lancaster has been in love with his best friend, Eliza, since residence but has hesitated to act on it because he can sense her distrust of men and her disbelief in love. However, when she asks the one question he never expected to hear from her, he quickly agrees, thinking an “in” is better that no “in” at all.

Thoughts...
When they agree to two weeks as her being Domme in exchange for two weeks of him being Dom, things get steamy real quick. They were kinda perfect together, especially in the first half of the book. Eliza has a traumatic past she’s trying to overcome and she denies any feelings that come close to love. What she never expected was to realize her feelings for Preston were more than lust, thinking she was incapable of love.

Preston has had troubles of his own, mostly in the form of one psycho ex-girlfriend, but this hasn’t stopped him from wanting Eliza or trusting they could have something beautiful together. Thinking he can show her his love, he jumps on the chance to spend a month with her, intimately. There is light BDSM play as Eliza explores the power of control. She likes not feeling like the victim and I think this bit of power, along with Prestons patience and kindness, help her heal.

The amateur BDSM play in the book was more along the lines of a couple of blindfolds and a few commands so it was light enough that it wouldn’t discourage a reader but playful enough to bring the spice!

The Trouble with Plots and Dialogue...
Both of these characters were insecure because there is a lot of miscommunication and I felt some of them were unnecessary because there was enough going on without the addition of “not talking”. Also, there were a lot of “getting to know you” moments which felt strange considering they had been best friends since residency, spending lots of time together, hanging out with each other at their houses. But they knew next to nothing of one another, especially on personal details. And lastly, the dialogue, mostly towards the end, felt off and a bit rushed, as did the story.

The Wrap Up:
This book had some problems with plot and dialogue, but it was a sweet, short read of about 134 pages that did entertain and left me with a good feeling. I enjoyed this one and would definitely read more by this author.

About the Author

Hi, my name is Siren Allen. I’m a writer and lover of all things erotic and romantic. I reside in southern Mississippi where I write steamy romances that are guaranteed to make you blush. When I’m not listening to the characters in my head and jotting down their adventures, I am busy working as a Clinical Laboratory Technician.

I love to travel, preferably with my husband, so he can do all of the driving. I enjoy time with my family, who are just as silly as I am. I have no children…yet, wish me luck! My hobbies are reading, writing and shopping, though I hate trying on clothing. If I wasn’t a writer or a Laboratory Professional, I would probably be a Secret Agent. But that’s the beauty of being a writer; you can create your own world and be whoever you want to be. In my imaginary world, I am Queen and my siblings are my minions.
