    2.5 StarsI ve read BDSM and Drak books and quite enjoyed them At some point, I was so sure that I would have enjoyed this one too But unfortunately, it was a disappointment for me In this book, there was no character that I would like I hate both MCs, oh not just MCs but all the characters From the first, I knew this one isn t going to be a love story but honestly I expected to feel a connection between them, feel the love between them, or at least feel something good but there was nothing at all Oh yeah, there was something Just humiliation and degradation, I felt them because all the story was like that Tracht was a real jerk, an sshole and Alex was like a stupid guy who behaves childish and doesn t know anything, someone who can t use his brain correctly Well, I can t say I like this one but I hope you enjoy it than me

    Dec 2018 reread I enjoyed this pass even , and I picked up on a lot of nuances that I missed during my first read Upgrading to 4.5 stars rounded up The characters in this book aren t particularly likable, and morally gray is probably too generous This won t look like romance to many readers, and the kink is 179 degrees from SSC RACK What I revere is the fact that the author created a compelling story regardless The narrative voice was uncomfortable and hard to identify with which was true to the characterization of the emotionally stunted MC and yet I found myself leaning into it, aww ing at sweet moments, and rooting for them despite it all, and that s top notch writing Oy vey I am HOOKED.First of all, slow clap of admiration for this author I underestimated her For roughly the first third of the book, I was feeling that the characters were a little flat At that point I assumed this book would be essentially kink porn, minimally developed beyond a base foundation for the sex But as the story progressed and I realized what was unfolding, I started to really trust what the author was doing.I feel like it s probably best to go into this one a little bit blind, so I m not going to write much about the premise But don t be blind about this one thing Under His Heel is NOT everyone s bag of tricks If you have triggers or hard limits, maybe just stay away Or at minimum, thoroughly peruse the reviews first for content warnings.Also, if you require a solid plot outside of the MCs relationship, you might not enjoy this one The character development and relationship evolution ARE the plot here Which I personally loved I ll happily take that as the primary story almost every time.The editing could have been tighter there were definitely typos I had to laugh because the sexy times tended to have a few of them the editors might have been a little distracted and less eagle eyed while proofing those parts If this were a standalone instead of the first in a series, I would be pissed It s not that it ends on a cliffhanger it doesn t but you ll definitely be left wanting of the story At least, I do Really really do.

    I would love to say that nothing goes over my head, my reflexes way too fast But not this time This book went WAY over my head So many WTFing hells, that I lost count I was uncomfortable throughout most of the book, but kept reading another WTFing hell to be analysed at a later date This author delivered an articulate, yet somewhat poisonous storyline that became an addiction I couldn t put it down, hoping that somehow all would become clear and it would make sense somehow, but poison doesn t make sense, does it Tracht is an out and out Sadist No empathy whatsoever, a narcissist personality, or is he Was it my romantic nature surfacing, wanting to see him have genuine feelings for Alex, because I needed to believe he did I don t know Which leads to another question Did Alex have the emotional aptitude and development to understand and recognise how he was being groomed by Tracht Was he mentally capable of assessing both positive and negative emotions Again, I don t know See It s a mindfuck of a read A very addictive and also disturbing mindfuck of a read, but I have to say, brilliantly executed by the author Tags Name one and add it I can t think of any taboo tags at this moment, that this book has not covered Master Slave Sadism Torture Rape Kink Bodily enhancements Piercings Exhibitionism Degradation Object penetration Cages Total control.to name but a few.So why 4 and not 5 How Tracht dealt with Nick was a bit of a let down for me considering what he d done to Alex and others I thought he totally under punished and knowing Tracht as I do, it was a bit of an anti climax, or maybe I do have a sadistic side to me

    Overall book rating 4.5Audio Book N ABook Cover 3.8 First of all This is not going to be everybody s cup of teaSecondly I have read some of the other reviews, and I have to agree with the fact that I also think this an established author writing under another name Not that it matters at all to me. I just found it interesting that there are people who got the same feel Third Wow So I might be kind of knocked on the head for enjoying this I know But Enjoy it I did And I feel that it has to be said that I applaud the author, be that new or not for being as direct as they were.I couldn t put this down Especially in the beginning I found the concept of putting yourself up for payment of your dept something else It was interesting Tracht gives Alex the impression that there is nothing to fear from him He is soft spoken and precise, when they first meet But Alex soon learns what you see isn t necessarily what you get.I liked Tracht He is what he is He s NOT a nice man He has very strange proclivities for which he makes no apologies He knows what he wants and he is not afraid of taking it Even when he feels drawn to Alex, he states the problem very clearly Tracht nibbled on Alex s earlobe The difficult part, Alex, is that the nature of my perversities, as you called them once, is that the I like you, the I want to hurt you He raked a fingernail across Alex s nipple, a sharp contrast to the soft kissing and nibbling. Tracht is a sadist There are probably a variety of other things or labels you can put on him, and it won t matter He will still love the taste of Alex s tears He will still love the power trip from being in complete control Alex Hmmm He was a little complicated for me to like at times I did like him, don t get me wrong And on one hand I kind of understand why his character didn t turn out to be a suppressed genius who suddenly could stand on his own feet and see the world for what it is.That simply would not have worked in the relationship dynamics between the two MC s I would however have loved a little growth in his character He does get around to a better understanding of things, but if there was to be just a little It would have been so perfect.Alex is perfect for Tracht Their relationship is totally unbalanced It s not romantic in any conventional way Yet, you still get the idea has the story progresses that NO ONE will mess with Alex if not by order from Tracht In his own twisted way, he cares, and he takes care of Alex Very twisted But still I liked the way this book shocked me Maybe that s why I did enjoy it the way I did Because of the total No You didn t Factors.Anyhow I think it was brilliant writing Why not 5 stars Because I felt the ending didn t live up to the rest of the story That and DON T READ THIS IF YOU STILL WANT TO READ THE BOOK view spoiler I didn t much care for the way they chose to deal with the EVIL TWIN BROTHER I got it But I didn t enjoy it I would much preferred Tracht giving his sorry ass to a dark acquaintance to enjoy for a few years or so hide spoiler

    If I could give this book a minus rating, I would have.If I could tear this book apart and burn it to the ground, I would have Sadly, I have this in ebook form Firstly, this book is trash Secondly, I don t know why there are so many 4 5 stars rating on this book Because refer for point 1.There is no plot whatsoever The MCs are dumb as a brick Alex the supposed slave talks and acts as if he was a high schooler Maybe he is, maybe he isn t I don t know I did not stick around that long to find out.Tracht Was that his name Honestly, even if I spelled it wrong, I could not give a shit He was the supposed owner Dom whatever the fuck this relationship is The connection between Alex and Tracht is nonexistent Their whole relationship, is based on sex And SM shit And some sex.Actually, the whole book is just one fucking big orgy.The MC fucks other men The MC fucks other women.The MC participates in threesomes Maybe even foursomes EVERYBODY WANTS TO FUCK AND I MEAN EVERYONE.The kink goes all the way from whipping, caning, tickle torture, to piercing, denial, public sex, public bondage and puppy play.My brain literally hurt from the sheer amount of times I rolled my eyes while skimming this book.If you are looking for sex on top of sex on top of sex with no plot, then maybe give this book a try.If not, don t even bother.

    All my favorite kinks in one convenient package it s like Adara Wolf wrote Under His Heel just for me I ve been craving something deliciously dark and this Master slave story is creative and dirty as hell This is in no way, shape, or form, your Risk Aware Consensual BDSM novel, so if you re sensitive be sure to check the list of trigger warnings.Adara Wolf paints a vivid picture of a gritty, futuristic world that lacks in clear cut rules, laws, and consequences Here people take justice into their own hands, and everybody seems to be just fine with that Forget the rules that govern our society, because they simply don t exist here This is a fascinating culture and it never stopped amazing me.This novel hooked me from the get go and once I started reading I couldn t put it down Under His Heel has some wonderfully diverse and complex characters, and its exploration of Master slave dynamics is the best I ve read in ages This is straight up dark erotica hot, dirty, kinky perfection.Here s the gist Alex Stone and his twin brother Nick are subpar con artists whose misdeeds finally catch up with them Rather than face the thugs they owe, they decide to register Alex through a debt leasing service In exchange for five years of his life, his owner will pay off their debt What could possibly go wrong Meet his new owner, Captain Tracht, a self proclaimed sadist and sexual deviant The whole reason he takes on a contract is to humiliate his slave and watch him suffer In fact, Tracht had to return his previous bondservant once he figured out the masochist liked what Tracht was doing, of all the nerve Tracht begins to systematically program Alex to appreciate his new position, and it doesn t take long Alex struggles between being comforted and angered, stimulated and repulsed, ashamed and proud Grateful for every respite from pain, hunger, humiliation, and , Alex begins to see Tracht as his savior.There s no question that Alex is not the sharpest tool in the shed Where do I start Coming from an abusive home he s been on his own since he was fourteen Always on the run, he never received a formal education and he views the world only as it pertains to himself He never developed the social skills necessary to participate in general society, and doesn t recognize emotional clues in others Failing to understand others motivations leads to some difficult situations for Alex.Captain Tracht is my new hero He is a sadist of the highest order, completely reveling in his position of power The skill and affected indifference with which he conditions Alex is awe inspiring Some of his actions oh hell, most of his actions are thoroughly depraved and he clearly feels no remorse Damn, I hope the next story with Captain Tracht comes out soon Adara Wolf is currently writing a novella about Tracht and Alex entitled A Kidnapping, and an excerpt is available on her website Thank goodness, because after Under His Heel I can t get enough Fans of dark erotica take note, this author knows what she s doing I hope to see lots where this came from.

    I feel like JenMcJ review says all I want to say Definitely and FINALLY of a sadist Please note This is FICTION I don t expect my MM SCiFi fiction to abide by RACK or SSC BDSM rules It s perfectly ok to me when you sign a contract to be a sort of slave and sadism is a part of it that things happen And beyond things you agreed too This reads like the authors been thinking about this world a while and has quite nicely built it up the flow was very good and I didn t find much to nitpick on Since I am a masochist IRL and I so rarely find good S m w o high protocol or a bunch of contract negotiations or having to wade through a bunch of D s to get to the good stuff this is like nectar for me Setting in SciFi removes it from having to meet all those pesky Earth based rules IMHO.

    4.5 Stars This is the kind of m m, S m book that I think the review says a lot about the reader It s full of serious S m, psychological manipulation and bondservant slave dubcon Tracht is a true sadist and his treatment of Alex is brutal both mentally and physically Tracht isn t fully ethical and is in no way a perfect dom but his flaws are part of what make this book compelling It s pain and kink and humiliation and sex and very hawt It does have tremendous emotional moments but because Alex is definitely emotionally and possibly mentally stunted he doesn t recognize them at all He picks up on very few emotional cues, including moral and ethical questions Not just his, but Tracht, Nick, Parsons, anyone including himself he just doesn t get it Now, this is the kind of book I actually enjoy read love that isn t going to be for everyone There is at least one scene near the end of the book that might throw the casual bdsm reader off Serious spoiler, don t read if you want the best full effect of this book and don t have trigger concerns view spoiler there is a scene of noncon twincest hide spoiler

    What I liked 1 Tracht was a sadist from beginning to end He stuck to the character, tormenting, humiliating and showing Alex the sharpness of his tough love He didn t get sappy, sugary or lame in his behavior, never letting go of what made him a sadist on behalf of love2 Alex had a nice character development arc He was a conman, a delinquent, who sold himself into bondage for a 5 years contract to pay a huge debt made by his twin brother He was a major naive dumbass At no point during the story did I feel any pity for what was happening to him He sold himself into bondage knowing how dangerous it would get Suck it up, boy pun intended But during the second half of the book he started being aware of his stupidity and learning and growing I liked that 3 Nice character development for two side characters.What I didn t like 1 Some sadist scenes Tracht pulled I could have done without Not out of shock value or because I couldn t take them I ve read Claustrophilia, I m practically immune , but out of boredom The character development would have gone just the same without them 2 No major plotOveral rating is 3.5.Writing 4My enjoyment 3.5Plot 2.5Character development 4.Thank you to Moony and Teal for the buddy read and the awesome side conversations on the book DP.S I don t like dumbasses as MCs in stories I don t find stupid hot or interesting But I didn t let that affect my rating because Alex had a nice character development.

    There is in this book about everything you can find in a SM story Fortunately, it was a science fiction story or there are many things I wouldn t have appreciated that much By the way, the SF elements are realistic enough but for a few things that could have been better, as for the tablet that is not in 3D or multisensorial and doesn t have interactive vocal response And I don t know how you could go from planet to planet without being in stasis or flying through wormhole or dimensional doors.Anyway, Adara Wolf wrote a very interesting story I ve even started reading book 1.5 of this short series Thanks a lot to Ginger who suggested me to read this book 3
