Review: The Claiming (Submissive #8.5) by Tara Sue Me

*****5 Stars*****

A little over a year ago, I first started reading Tara Sue Me's Submissive Series, and quickly worked my way through all of the released books, loving the wonderful cast of characters and well written plots involving BDSM. The Claiming is a newly released novella that focuses on Sasha and Cole, who we met in The Master, but also gives us some page time with all of our other beloved Partners in Play members.
In The Master, Sasha was dealing with the physical and emotion scars left by Peter and after an extended time away from Partners in Play, she returns. Cole is enlisted to retrain her and he makes it clear from day one that he is simply training her for a new Master and their will be no sex or emotional connection. He'll be stepping back once he's completed the task he has set out to accomplish. Of course, as one can imagine, that does not go to plan and soon these two are so enmeshed in each other's lives and hearts there is no way Cole can pass her off to another Master.
I fell quite in love with Sasha and Cole in the previous book and was so excited to find out there was a new novella being released that would further tell their story. In The Claiming, Cole and Sasha head off to the UK where Cole has planned several wondeful (and some kinky) surprises for Sasha and plans to ask her a very important question. Their friends from Partners in Play are along for the adventure and this novella was filled with wonderfully amusing, touching and heart-felt moments. It also sets us up for the next full-length novel in the series, The Exposure, which I'm anxious to read. This was another well done story in a fabulously well written BDSM series. I highly recommend it, though do suggest you read at least The Master first, and if at all possible, all the previous books in the series to help you better appreciate all of the characters.

The New York Times bestselling author of the Submissive series returns to the story started in The Master with a tantalizing new novella about passion, play, and possession...
Submitting is just the beginning...
Sasha Blake never thought her emotional wounds would heal—that they were a part of her just like her physical scars. But that was before Cole Johnson’s boundless love and overwhelmingly sexy control set her free, unleashing a confident side that she never knew she had. He’s more than just her Master; he’s her world. And she’ll do anything he asks...

Cole’s days of restless wandering are done—he’s found everything he needs in Sasha. Now, it’s time to make it official. When his childhood home in England goes up for sale, he realizes the old estate is the perfect place to claim Sasha as his own, and the ideal opportunity to show her just how much she means to him.

As Sasha, Cole, and their closest friends from their Partners in Play community descend on the British countryside for a titillating adult vacation, the submissives and Dominants alike will test their boundaries—and have an adventure none of them will ever forget...
