Wrapped Around Your Finger: A Story of Submission
If books one and two were Sam’s initiation to BDSM and a D/s relationship, then this third book is her sophomore sojourn into further exploration of the lifestyle and her relationship with Jack. While Wrapped Around Your Finger is much more aware of itself as a memoir than were the previous two novels, the difference is by no means detrimental. Sam is growing as a narrator, as a girlfriend, though she still has her trademark shyness and punk girl attitude. The intense, angst-y Sam has transformed, becoming less anxious and more aware of herself. Readers who have been with Sam since the beginning will feel that she’s become more pensive, more aware of her relationship with Jack, and more in touch her ever expanding sexuality. Wrapped challenges Sam’s comprehension of what love means, and how she relates to her Dom lover. With its Story of O themes, Wrapped is a more light-hearted glimpse inside of Jack and Sam’s love life, though the sex is still sharp-edged and the pages still swollen with desire as only Alison Tyler can write. A solid follow-up to the first two books of the series that pushes the boundaries of what we assume about love.
