Winner of the 2008 National Leather Association's Pauline Reage Novel Award. Erotic BDSM fiction. Take two caring, thoughtful individuals with some highly unusual sexuality, let their paths cross, and watch how far their obsession takes them. That's the essence of this story about an intense bdsm relationship: extreme, loving, creative, steeped in imagination, embedded in the real world. What emerges is a passionate, private sexual reality, in which the balance of power tips only one way. Maia and Anders want nothing less than total power exchange, without games, negotiations or safewords. Any pretence is out of the question; for both of them the power relationship has to be as genuine as it is absolute, but Anders is more than aware of the risks to inexperienced Maia if she should be wrong about what she can handle. Early on, he steers a careful line between games and gobbling her up. His ownership is established step by step through conditioning, painful consequences, humiliation and constant bondage, and before long, Maia finds walking away has become inconceivable. Anders keeps his slave increasingly 'like an animal on a very short tether' something to which she struggles to adjust, in a continuous state of terror and joy His love of technology takes some interesting turns, particularly around orgasm control, teasing and denial. The intensification of Maia's enslavement is balanced by the pair's affection, sense of humour and intelligent conversation, and by the real world of work and friends. Some of these friends become integrated into the meage one way and another, and help Anders create the setting in which Maia's uttermost submission can flower. Graphic BDSM content.

It's not very often anyone cares to write a story about "a born slave" or someone who's kink is 24/7 slavery.People tend to look down on it, even people within the BDSM community, which leaves, obviously, a whole niche group reading about brats, and what not. I have to say, Anneke got this so right....

Not sure what to say - I couldn't put this book down. The lifestyle is not my cuppa but I do enjoy reading about it. I enjoyed Owned and Owner enough to buy As She's Told - I'm so glad I did. I occasionally had difficulty with the changing POV, but other than that - great story. Not for the fain...

I am mixed with my ratings on this book. Several of my friends indicated the humiliation was too much for them. This wasn't the case for me. Others indicated they didn't like the intense puppy or pony play. This wasn't a problem for me either. The forced pleasuring of females when Maia didn't l...

'K, so I finished As She's Told. It's well written, and I like it better than Owned & Owner for three reasons--it takes place in Toronto,ON (my hometown) and the hero seemed more emotionally vested (love/respect/like, not just obsession) in the heroine and didn't just want her as an object (unlike '...

My bottom line for this book was not that the lifestyle was too extreme for me to appreciate. It was that the depiction of the lifestyle and the relationship between the couple failed to communicate a great deal of erotic passion. Once in a while Jacob allowed her characters to express their pleasur...
