Reluctant Muse by Victoria Blisse

Reluctant Muse by Victoria Blisse
* I received this ARC free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Carrie is a shy student who works in a fast food joint to make ends meet. Her boss is a bully and she meets Jamie when he stands up for her. She’s got terrible self-esteem problems, but Jamie is an artist and wants to paint her naked. He’s also a dominant and he wants to play with her submissive side. Can Carrie overcome her fears and the ghosts of her past to fully give in to Jamie? This excellent short story from award-winning author Victoria Blisse has domination and submission themes and has been specially formatted for today’s ebook readers.

Carrie has problems with her self-confidence and doesn’t find herself attractive at all.  She thinks she is overweight and that no one man would desire her.  When she started working at the burger place she never expected to find someone like Jamie.  He stood up for her when her boss was bullying her and tried to ensure that it wouldn’t happen again.

She can’t believe that Jamie is attracted to her and wants to paint her, nude none the less.  She seems ashamed of her body and doesn’t think she is sexy.  Jamie hopes to change that, he wants her to see herself the way he sees her, beautiful.  With his help, she slowly gains self-confidence and learns to stand up for herself.

Carrie also lacks intimate experience and Jamie has a plan to remedy that.  He is a dominant at heart and thinks that Carrie will make the perfect sub for him.  Because she lacks sexual experience, she is able to enjoy her time with Jamie without worrying about social convictions.  She is stunned when she sees his drawings of her; the girl in the drawings is beautiful.

This story is one that a lot of people can relate to because a lack of self-confidence is a common thing.  It was nice to witness not only Carrie’s growth but Jamie’s as well.  He had his own issues with his family.

They were a well matched pair and the sexual chemistry was evident from the beginning.  I love that the story focused on the main characters with just a few secondary characters that added to the story.  I loved the scene where Carrie stands up for herself with her boss.

Overall I enjoyed this story and give Reluctant Muse 4 Flaming Hearts.
