Book review - Her Leading Man by Adaline Raine (BDSM romance) 4 stars

Her Leading Man by Adaline Raine
BDSM romance 
4/5 stars 


Gretchen Williams had finally been offered her dream job. After years of writing—screenplays, various freelance jobs, and erotic spanking romance—one of her book series had been adapted for television. She had been over the moon at the invitation to join the crew on set and overlook day to day operations.

Of course she never expected to wind up as the whipping girl. The main actress balked at the idea of a hand coming anywhere near her perfect round behind, and after some deliberations Gretchen offers up her derriere for showbiz . She never dreamed her bottom would be on display for everyone to see, but the bigger problem is the sudden attention from the male lead actor. 

Tristan Callahan knew exactly what he was signing up for when he accepted the contract for a one year term, tentative for a second season at best. The subject matter appealed to him for a variety of reasons, ones he kept to himself. Until Gretchen throws a temper tantrum like a true diva. He takes her in hand, right in her own trailer, proving that he’s been doing very little acting so far. 

They embark into a secret D/s relationship. 

When photos of them together at a local BDSM dungeon surface and leak to the media, they find themselves with tough choices to make. Will their relationship overcome the scandal or is Gretchen doomed to say goodbye to Tristan in true Hollywood fashion? 


Her Leading Man is a fun, entertaining spanking romance that really made me smile. It's set against the glamorous backdrop of Hollywood, and the author brings this world alive. The storyline is interesting and the characters are well drawn and likeable.  The BDSM and sex scenes are believable and extremely sensual - they will set your kindle on fire!

Gretchen is an author of spanking romances and is delighted when one of her books is turned into a television series.  When the main actress decides she doesn't want to take part in the spanking scenes, Gretchen steps in to be her body double. Tristan plays the hero in the show, and he's getting more and more tempted by Gretchen's gorgeous body. He's experienced in the BDSM and domestic discipline lifestyle, so when Gretchen throws a strop on set he steps in and takes her in hand. They start a secret D/s relationship, but when the secret comes out will their relationship survive?

Tristan was a fabulous character, I absolutely loved him. I'd have liked to have got to know him even better though, as he was so sexy and intriguing. He had fabulous chemistry with Gretchen, they were great together. I really enjoyed this author's writing style, especially her sparkling, witty dialogue. Her Leading Man is a great book that receives four out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
