At five past midnight on New Year’s Day, Olivia Roux formally signed up to Harry Lomax’s Alchemy xii submissives’ training program—and in so doing earned herself her first punishment. Harry had demanded her answer by midnight. But was that small infringement by accident or on purpose? Now, as Harry gives Olivia her first taste of what to expect from Alchemy xii, Olivia discovers a whole new world of forbidden pleasures.

As she’s initiated into the program, Harry gives her a diary.

“It’s for you to write down exactly what happens at Alchemy. And, more importantly, your feelings about what you’re going through. Things that were good and things that upset you or scared you or that you didn’t like. No one else will read it but you…” said Harry.

Olivia is fascinated by Alchemy and all that occurs there—and she’s as fascinated by Harry as he is by her. He may be her Dom, but it’s not only his domination of her body that draws her to him. However, she also quickly learns that actions have reactions and her behavior may have unseen consequences.

How will she cope as Harry steps up his demands for her submission? After all, Olivia has been captain of her own life and her own body for as long as she can remember. One thing is certain, submission isn’t going to come easily to a woman as high-powered as she is.

This is book 2 in the Alchemy XII series. This series is coming out in monthly installments. In the first book, New Years Eve Prologue, we meet Harry and Olivia. This is the perfect beginning to what will probably be an awesome BDSM tale. In this story, Olivia is accepted into the Alchemy training program with Harry Lomax. Harry is the Dom of her dreams and she can hardly wait to get started. After a night of pleasure, Harry tells her the schedule for training. She meets him at the Alchemy hotel and then waits for him. Her sharp tongue gets her into trouble. She is going to need to make a lot of changes if she wants this to work. He lays on the rules, no talking out of turn, and no orgasms unless he says so. This creates so many problems for Olivia, and for Harry.

I really enjoyed this installment, even better than the first one. There was more sex and punishment. This didn’t get into hard core BDSM. This was more of a teaser. The denial in this story is the punishment, and I really did feel bad for her. We get a good look at Harry interacting within his club and with the members. This didn’t feel like 44 pages, it seemed like there was so much more going on in this story. Olivia starts writing in her diary and the story is told in her first person. We don’t know what Harry is thinking in this story, except what he tells Olivia. We just know that he is establishing his dominance and Olivia is playing right into his hand.
