Another Way by Anna Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
On the surface, Jesse Ross is an average guy in an average relationship with his college sweetheart, Adele. But what his girlfriend doesn’t know is that he’s having an affair—with a man—and exploring his sexuality in ways she never could imagine. His compartmentalized life suits Jesse just fine, and he has no intention of coming out of the closet either as a bisexual or as a submissive.
However, Jesse takes a tumble when his Master, Will, admits to wanting more, wanting Jesse as his partner, not just his submissive. Suddenly Jesse's conveniently pieced-together life isn’t quite so comfortable. In the end, Jesse has to lay it all on the line—for his girlfriend, for his lover, and for himself.
This book was a total surprise.
It felt like visiting friends and watching them as they navigate their changing relationship. The writing was personable and the first person perspective worked beautifully. What I loved most was that the mind set of a sub was not only look at but explored. We got to see both sides of the D/s relationship and how it fits into a healthy relationship and that made this book phenomenal. The BDSM was treated like a normal part of their life and not a kink.
This is a book about people and relationships and communication and the importance of being open about what you feel. I think if a book can teach you about how a healthy relationship should work then this should be its template.
