Please...and thank you!

As erotica, this book is 100/10 excellent. Every single story was HOT. Whether the specific kink involved was to my taste or not, the writing style and the explanation and carryout of those kinks was extremely skillful and had the desired effect.

Satisfying to read, inspiring, and definitely worth a second and third read.

useful review
While I've read a lot of erotica (and I do mean a lot), truly good femdom stories are hard to come across, especially for a dominant woman. A lot of the things I've read are either aimed almost entirely at the male reader (IE: short, very sexual, and without much backstory) or just plain too niche-specific for my tastes. However, "Please, Ma'am" was a pleasant surprise to say the least, and is definitely something that I'd recommend to an up-and-coming domme like myself for light reading material.

First of all, the physical look of the book made me very happy. Being a subtle sort of girl, I was reluctantly anticipating a wide, slender tome, but was happy to find that it's fairly small in size and thicker than I was expecting. It looks like...well, a full-length novel, not just smut. And the whole look of it is fairly subtle; no nudity, no big "THIS IS PORN" in bold letters on the front or back. This is a volume I won't be worried about being found.

Secondly, every single story - I mean it, from beginning to end - was HOT.

And I'm not talking about just being sexy. I'm talking theory, language, style, and actual content. Each one of the stories had a deeper theme, and they all were written to be masturbated to, but more than a few of them made me smile and warmed my heart. Several of them were downright romantic, while others were purely feral instinct.

As a writer of fiction and erotica myself, I was impressed and pleased with the quality throughout the book. Not one of the sweet short stories was a disappointment. I even found a couple of new fetishes to play around with!

Although I wouldn't say this is a good book for examples, it definitely provides insight for any new domme or male submissive into what daily life is like for those of us who choose to make it a lifestyle. The narrative style of many of the stories gives them an intimate feel, making it seem like you're peeking into their diaries.

I would recommend it to anyone into femdom; there really wasn't a story in there I didn't enjoy, so there isn't a risk of wasting money involved at all. Although the title begs for you to enjoy it, any reader should be left gasping a thank you to the authors!
Follow-up commentary
Even after owning this book for awhile the stories are still heartwarming and privately warming for many reasons. I still enjoy flipping through it when I'm in the mood and it hasn't gotten old. I'll definitely be looking for more of these collections.

    It's great when a book cover is a little more subtle not to mention the woman on the cover is HAWT! Thanks for the review!
