Product Description

Product Description

I thought no one could tame me until I met him…

My life revolved around two things— sex and power. As a sex therapist, I helped couples with their intimacy issues while appearing to lead a typical single life. Although I lived a civilized life during the day, by nightfall I transformed into my sadistic, dominating persona.

When a session with my submissive left him severely injured, I found myself sitting in Xavier Bennett’s office for court-ordered therapy. It was one thing to reveal the skeletons in my closet, but it was a different ball game to confess these demons to my colleague. Little did I know, he harbored dark secrets of his own.

After receiving an invitation to assist Xavier with his marriage retreat, I soon learn his intentions weren't what they seemed. What I thought would be a relaxing work-related vacation turned into a mental bloodbath as we both fought for dominance. Walls will come tumbling down and someone’s bound to get hurt.

There can only be one Master.
Who will come out on top and who will surrender?

If you like BDSM themes or something a little edgier, then this would be the perfect book for you! This is definitely not a typical romance, nor is it "another 50SOG."

Gia is a sex therapist by day and a sadistic dominatrix by night. Xavier is a mental health therapist with infinite patience. Gia has been assigned court-ordered therapy with Xavier because she lost control and severely injured one of her submissives. Will Xavier be able to help closed-off Gia? Will Gia ever be able to be intimate with anyone who is not a "slave"?

The writing itself is good, very vivid, and the plot kept moving forward at a steady pace. The characters were interesting, but I found it difficult to relate to them, especially Gia. She was just too extreme and sadistic for me. One quote in the book has stuck with me, even days later: "Sometimes the right time is too late."

This is the first book by Victoria Bright that I have read. While sadism is not my cup of tea, I do think others would like this book and style of writing.

I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium book blog.

Carnal Recovery from Victoria Bright was a HOT 5+ star read.
Ugly Cry, Dark & Erotic Romance, Hot Alpha Male and Female.

As I grinned at one slave stuffed in a dog crate and another tied face down on a table before me, I realized even more what I was. A sadist.

All I can say is “WOW”. This is my first read by Victoria Bright and it is most definitely not my last.

We meet Gia who is a sex therapist and a Sadist Dominant. After an incident with one of her slaves ending up in the hospital she has been ordered to see a therapist. This is where we meet Xavier . He happens to work in the same building at Gia and has had his eye on Gia for quite some time. Now is his chance to get close to her through therapy.
The only problem is, he is also a Dominant.

As we get to know Gia we find that she had a horrific childhood and was hurt by the one person who should have been her protector. The memories that we get to see are so heartbreaking and explains why Gia has to have total control.

Xavier convinces Gia to work a retreat with him, not knowing that he is tricking her into more therapy for herself. And boy oh boy things get very steamy and hot. Will Xavier be able to help Gia? Will Gia be able to give up control to Xavier?

“I always get what I want, so don’t count me out,” he said with a wink and a smile so sexy that my panties would probably melt off if they weren't frozen to my a$$.

There is so much more to this great read. More secrets and intense scenes. Carnal Recovery is book #3 in the Curvy Assignments series and can be read as a stand-alone. There is no cliff hanger and we do get to see a HEA although it was not easily obtained. You will experience several emotions while reading. There are some very heavy scenes that contain rape and abuse that may be a trigger for some. If you enjoy BDSM with and without slaves this is your type of book. 1-Click and get started today. Thank you Victoria for a great read!

HASH(0xa1429594) out of 5 stars Great book- sexy characters March 9 2016
By Tamara @ One Handed Book Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was very impressed with Carnal Recovery. I was a little lost- because I haven’t read the previous books- but that in no way took away from Gia and Xavier’s story. Gia thinks she has it under control- that she is happy being alone- and just having her slaves to attend to her needs. When she loses control- and has to go to counseling- the façade begins to crack. Xavier is there chipping at the cracks and healing her at the same time. I cried at a couple of points in the book. My heart broke when Gia described her childhood. I felt a swirl of emotions when she described what she had been through. Xavier had his own secrets- but he isn’t dark. He is charming and smitten with Gia.
I loved this book- I am going to go back and read previous titles. I think Victoria Bright did a fabulous job- and she will go on my list of authors to read.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought Gia was a terrific character dark past and perfectly flawed. I love the BDSM and it was different than others I have read it kept me engaged through the whole book.
I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future!

"I avoided love, not to be stubborn, but to protect myself."

This was my first book by Victoria Bright, it was an interesting story of self awareness and love. This is the story of Gia who uses sexual pleasure to regain control of her life. With the help, love, and guidance of Xavier she finds a way to face her fears and eventually fall in love. It was a nicely wove story that I'd like more of. It's said it can be read as a standalone, but I think next time I would read the series from the beginning. I'm going to start it now!

HASH(0xa10812a0) out of 5 stars Highly recommended March 12 2016
By Tish Delanoy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! Wow! Wow! My head is still spinning from the very intense and highly emotional ride this story took me on. This one seriously had everything that makes a book so good. Who would have guessed that one week in a cabin with a stranger would change the course of two lives? I'm certain that Gia had no idea that she and Xavier would end up where they did.
