The Wall Street Domme is a refreshing journey into the D/s world that doesn’t involve an ingénue discovering, or being shown, her true submissive nature and embracing it. Hallelujah! Indeed, the protagonist here is a sexually repressed alpha female whose midlife ennui leads her to a sexual awakening and a kinky career change that is tantamount to self-actualization. This isn’t some fanciful sexual fantasy; Marilyn segueing from a highly analytical, overachieving power broker to a successful professional domme with a submissive live-in femme lover is a totally plausible scenario. And what a fun ride it is for the reader. This creative and well-written debut novel by author S.L. Hendrickson is a welcome addition to kinky literature.
Marilyn loved the power and prestige of being one of the most powerful women on Wall Street. However, there was something missing in her life that she couldn’t put a name to…until she experiences her first orgasm and the thrill of sexual domination. After her life-changing sexual awakening, it’s not long before she morphs from a virgin to a connoisseur of her own orgasms, and from a business leader to a dominatrix.
She also meets Leslie, who makes her feel desirable and sexy. With Leslie, she has the first loving and sexually satisfying relationship of her life. Marilyn doesn’t care if her mother thinks that it is wrong to be a lesbian, all she knows is that she needs Leslie in her life and in her bed. While The Wall Street Domme contains diverse scenes of sexual domination, it is primarily a story of one woman’s personal and sexual journey that is more about self-discovery than sex.
