An online connection.
Masked by anonymity.
No cameras. No pictures.
Curiosity ignited to intrigue.
I thought I knew what I was getting into, but had no idea how far we would go…
My intention was to test the waters, dip my toe in the wading pool. Instead I surrendered to the world of seduction and submission as he submerged me–body, mind, and soul–into an ocean of eroticism.
Emails, texts, and hidden identities, were one thing. But now, coming face-to-face with the mystery man, the star of my fantasies, both terrifies and completely thrills me. If all goes according to plan, he will intensify the exquisite bond we share by transporting me to that glorious intersection between agony and ecstasy. If not, everything we’ve built will come crashing down around us, destroying my dreams in the process.
Either way, there is no going back. Because I want more. Much more.
He always says, “For every ounce of pleasure, a price must be paid.”
And I am going to pay…
Warning: If you’re not a fan of dirty talk or dominant alpha males, “Her Web Master” may not be for you, but if you’re looking for a filthy online boyfriend who will make your toes curl, meet Sophie’s mysterious Dom.

There is so much I can say about this book, but I don’t know where to start.
I am not someone who shy’s away from a good BDSM book. I love the sexiness of a good BDSM story, but I also love the “connection” that the two characters have. There is always a “care” session after a good “BDSM session”, but when it is all handled online, there is none of that. There is no real “relationship” between the two main characters.
You have Sophie, who is a kindergarten teacher and married. Her husband is a cheating douche bag, but she stays married to him, until one day they have an argument and he leaves, and sends her a text message that he wants a divorce.
So instead of her going on a “dating website” she goes on a BDSM website and sees an ad for “submissive training”. A DOM named MC starts working with her to become a “good girl” submissive.
The entire concept of the story seems like it would be HOT, but it just seemed like it was missing something. I like it when there is some sort of “connection” between two people in a story. Either you can feel what the Dom is getting out of the relationship. You definitely know what Sophie is getting out of it.. but it just seems like a one-sided relationship.
The words MC uses from the get go was a bit “harsh” I would think. I am no expert in this subject, but I would think he would want to build some sort of trust with her first, before giving her the types of “tests” she had to do, and the names he called her. WOW.
The other part of the audio book I had was the narration. It is a woman, and to hear her try to read the part of a DOM, and say the things he says to her just did not work for me. I think I will stick to actual reading and not so much audio, even though it was convenient to have it read to me while I did chores. It just left very little for the imagination when you have the woman reading the entire story, trying to sound like the male Dom.
I would give this a try in regular text and not audio. The author is a great writer, and she is very creative. This is something different than the ordinary stories that keep coming out. It just wasn’t for me.

ABOUT NORMANDIE ALLEMAN
A former psychologist, Normandie has always been fascinated by human behavior. She loves writing quirky characters that are all too human. “I’m interested in the kind of relationships people have in real life. So I write about my characters’ messy, unpredictable, and inexplicable journeys to love.”
If there were another 5 hours in the day, Normandie would spend more time needle-pointing and playing with photography. Instead, she’s a Pinterest addict and sports junkie who’s crazy for Twitter and the color pink. She lives with a passel of children, her hunky husband, and a pet pig who loves Red Bull.
