Technically, it began several months ago, having unpublished all three books and completed one chapter. When I say re-write, that's precisely what I mean. I am completely over-hauling all three books. What was originally written in first person narrative is being changed to third person. It's quite a daunting undertaking, especially when considering how lengthy the books are. But, I genuinely believe that this change is for the best. It will allow for more description, better allowing the reader to experience what the characters see and feel. With this comes new covers and new titles, as well as new material. I'm excited, while at the same time scared, as I don't want to let my fans down, nor do I want to taint the memory of Isa, Dylan and Sawyer. I cannot definitively say when I will be done. I want to take my time and get this right with the hopes that the changes will garner more exposure, perhaps even a publishing deal. Wish me luck.

"I thought you were a delicate fucking flower?" "I am. I'm a delicate flower that likes to be fucked hard. So what? Finally I have Dylan and Isa back. I have missed these two so much I was hurting. I needed my fix. So, we take off I would say a month after the second book. Things get heated up pretty quickly... I love when Mistress Isabella comes out and plays. I love the switch, a true switch. Their relationship gets tested, Demons come to resurface, ass holes who need their balls chopped off come back. This book tortured me in the best ways possible. I love him so much and I want him to be pleased with my acquiescence and total submission. True love, power exchange, contentment and most importantly, trust - have finally graced me with their presence and my life with Isa is complete. Overall this series is one of my all time favorites now. I felt a deep connection to each character from book 1 till now. I don't want their story to end. I would highly recommend this series. If you love BDSM that gets you all hot an bothered, then this is a must read. The writing is brilliant. Ella brings you into her own special world that will capture you and not let you go. Bravo Ella, Bravo. You did such a wonderful job. I received an ARC from the Author exchange for honest review. And because Ella kicks ass. :)

The conclusion of Dylan’s and Isa’s whirlwind saga of BDSM sexual exploration, personal growth, demons & villains, all in the name of love. “In my personal opinion, it’s those people who deny their sexuality that need the help, not people like me and Isa. We’re living out our fantasies with each other, we’re not hurting anyone and it’s completely consensual. Why can’t the world understand that? F~ck anyone who has the nerve to judge the way we decide to love each other.” ~ Dylan The Art of D/s trilogy is an epic saga of self-discovery, pushing all sexual limits and an all-consuming love. It starts off as the whirlwind romance of Dylan and Isa, two flawed, lonely and broken souls who embark on a co-dependent journey of sexual exploration while fighting demons and villains from their pasts. This Art of D/s series should be read in order: Book 1: The Art of Submission Book 2: The Art of Domination Book 3: The Art of Control In book 1 & 2 we followed Dylan Young, a skilled and experienced Dom as he first became obsessed with Isa, the artist and soon discovered her submissive tendencies. Dylan pursued a BDSM relationship with Isa, but their relationship quickly became blurry with the in control Dylan bending and compromising and the semi-submissive Isa showing a bossy, dominant side. What started off as vanilla sex with a BDSM twist grew into BDSM and beyond. In the two months since book 2 ended Dylan has come to the realization that he may have pushed Isa too far at times: “I’ve been more candid with her as well about my wants and needs. We’re both works in progress as I try to be a better Dom for her and her, a better submissive for me.” Book 3 opens up with them heading for a belated honeymoon in Paris. We are treated to off-the-charts sex where Dylan and Isa push themselves and each other to new levels. A continued journey or self discovery and fulfillment for both Dylan and Isa. But just like the previous books, book 3 is every bit the rollercoaster of villains and demons from the past set out to threaten, hurt and break them apart. Their relationship is tested and they are both forced to confront their pasts and their demons. Only for everything to come to a heart-wrenching blow, so big and ugly not even love is strong enough to conquer. Isa has come a long way since the innocent and soft-spoken young artist we met in book 1. She has grown into a self assured and mature woman and is discovering the fine balance between being Dylan’s submissive and at times his Domme. As it turns out she is a “true Switch”: “BDSM gives me that sense of purpose and that purpose is to submit to you completely and to accept your gift of submission to me.” My only grievance with this whole series is Isa’s behavior in parts of this book. Even though there were mitigating circumstances, she did something unforgivable. I have deducted one point from her rating in this book. But it does not change my overall rating of book/series. Dylan is without a doubt one of the most unforgettable of heroes. His wit, candidness, sarcasm, sexiness, intensity and larger-than-life personality is nothing less than mesmerizing. In all his possessiveness and in-control presence it has been my pleasure and joy to watch this man bend, compromise and push himself - all in his need and love for Isa. “I’ll never get enough of this woman - my wife. I want to please her. I want to own her completely: Mind, body and soul. I want her to be my physical property. She is my physical property.” He still manages to be sexy and mostly in control: “I’m horny as a motherf~cker, hard and itching to get my sadistic groove on. As I stroke myself, my mind starts coming up with all sorts of fantastic ways I can torture my beautiful wife as I look around the room for more everyday items that will work in that regard.” *** “After the most amazing head I’ve ever gotten in my life over the longest period of time imaginable, I climax into Isa’s mouth and she drinks me up like what I’m offering is life sustaining.” As much as I’d like to keep Dylan all to myself... there is no doubt he belongs to Isa, heart, mind, body and soul. They are truly perfect for each other: “Sempre a sua - always his…” “I want to crawl into his heart and live there forever. I vow to do whatever it takes to make him happy and keep him safe. I will exist to please only him. My entire world belongs to him now. He is mine and I am his. He is my Master and my everything.” ~ Isa *** “Sempre dela - always hers…” “Mistress Isabel ties me down and pushes my limits of pain and pleasure, and I’m the one screaming out her name. True love, power exchange, contentment and most importantly, trust – have finally graced me with their presence and my life with Isa is complete.” ~ Dylan Not only has Ms. Dominguez written an amazingly erotic tale, a journey of sexual exploration in the world of BDSM. She has captivated me with Dylan Isa and their love for each other. The Art of D/s is an epic, spellbinding saga about pushing all limits and surrendering it all for love. *** Hero rating: 5+ stars Heroine rating: 4 stars Sex scenes rating: 5 stars* Sex scenes frequency: 5 stars Storyline concept rating: 4.5 stars Storytelling skills rating: 5 stars Story ending rating: 4.5 stars Book editing rating (5 = no edits spotted): 4.5 stars ************************************************ Overall rating: 5 stars Would I recommend this series: Yes. Would I re-read this series: Yes. Would I read future books by this author: Yes. *I would describe the BDSM sex scenes in this series as medium. I felt the sex was always consensual and while it was, at times, violent including oral, anal, bondage, flogging, whipping, biting, cutting, with-holding and some intimidation, there was NO choking, fisting, caning, rapes nor multiple sex partners.

    The final installment in the D/s Trilogy gave us a truly stunning conclusion to the whirlwind relationship between Dylan and Isa... Just when I thought it was impossible to love him anymore, I do. I love him entirely, completely, eternally and infinitely, and beyond the stars and universe. This book was a perfect example of how to balance panty-melting Erotica with an intriguing and thought-provoking storyline...

Just when I thought it was impossible to love him anymore, I do. I love him entirely, completely, eternally and infinitely, and beyond the stars and universe. This book was a perfect example of how to balance panty-melting Erotica with an intriguing and thought-provoking storyline... It featured emotional turmoil (for both the MCs as well as the Reader), personal growth from both main characters, heart-wrenching confessions, nail-biting suspense... and of course, the sinfully sexy interludes we've come to expect from this series... DYLAN YOUNG He’s a strict Dom with a vicious sadistic streak a mile wide, but I love it just as much as I love him. His hand is firm and he’s not afraid to use it when I’ve broken protocol, but his heart is soft and he’s gotten less and less afraid to show that side of himself. ISABEL YOUNG "I like the pain because it makes me feel alive. But more importantly, I surrender to the pain because it pleases my Master and I know he enjoys giving it to me and that he needs to give it to me in order for him to feel content..." Many trilogies often stumble over themselves in the third book, rushing toward the end and struggling to tie everything up with a pretty bow, but Ella Dominguez had a beautiful rhythm to her timing... She kept me on the edge of my seat, a lump in my throat, turning pages like a mad woman without even realizing it... Honestly, if I didn't have Becoming Sir to look forward to reading next... I would have the biggest book hangover... Some of My Favorite Moments: (view spoiler)[ I may be a sadist, but I’m no son-of-a-bitch. He’s a strict Dom with a vicious sadistic streak a mile wide, but I love it just as much as I love him. His hand is firm and he’s not afraid to use it when I’ve broken protocol, but his heart is soft and he’s gotten less and less afraid to show that side of himself. “Yes, you are flawed, but so am I. I love you and all of your wonderful, amazing flaws. They’re what make you unique and special,” I tell her. She smiles weakly and I see the light in her eyes returning. “I wouldn’t have you any other way, Isa, and that’s the truth. Am I your Dom?” I ask. She blinks rapidly and answers, “Yes.” “When you doubt yourself, you doubt my decision to having chosen you to be my submissive and my wife. I love you, but I won’t tolerate my decisions being second-guessed. You already know this, don’t you?” I gently remind her. "...I’m a delicate fucking flower, thank you very much.” My body doesn’t know whether to wither or blossom from the pleasantly painful assault. "...I can’t help you if you don’t tell me what you need. You’re never going to get over these things if you don’t talk about them. I know how hard that is for you to do. I know. You’re more important to me than work and taking care of you is what I live for, so don’t deprive me of it. I want you to need me. I love that you need me. It’s okay if you need to be saved. Sometimes even the strongest, most independent people need to be rescued.” Watching her mouth speak a foreign language is mesmerizing. The way her mouth forms the words and the sight of her tongue caressing each syllable is hypnotic. I was never fond of the French language, but the way Isa wields each consonant makes me want to fuck her mouth until she speaks fluent gibberish. True love, power exchange, contentment and most importantly, trust – have finally graced me with their presence and my life with Isa is complete. “You have enough money; can’t you buy us a condo on the moon or something? No one can bother us there and you can attend all your work meetings via satellite and I can paint the stars to my heart’s content.” “If you think by staying away from me you’re keeping me safe, you’re wrong, pussycat. If being with you means physical death, then I welcome it because I’m dead inside without you,” Impatient, Sawyer honks the horn and rolls down the passenger side window. “Grow a pair and let’s go!” he yells. Fucking hell. Sawyer is injured and still, he has more cojones than me. That’s some fucked up bullshit. I’ve never seen anything like this. Ever. The power struggle going on between the two of them is sexy as fuck and terrifying as hell and all I can do is stand like a complete idiot watching them, my eyes darting back and forth between them like I’m watching an intense tennis match. Who will win? My money is on Isabel. Correction, Mistress Isabel. Just when I thought it was impossible to love him anymore, I do. I love him entirely, completely, eternally and infinitely, and beyond the stars and universe. "...Now, with a little bit of luck and a whole lot of effort, I’m sure my bad-ass alpha seed can find its way to your submissive eggs.” (hide spoiler)] My Other Reviews for Books in the D/s Series: (I will update links as reviews become available) 0.5 - The Art of Redemption - On my to-Read List 1 - The Art of Submission - My review can be read here. 2 - The Art of Domination - My review can be read here 3 - The Art of Control - YOU'RE READING IT 4 - Becoming Sir - My review can be read here

    4.5 UBER SIZZLING STARS! The final installment of The Art of D/s. This book picks up soon after The Art of Domination leaves off. Dylan and Isa are happily married and recovered as good as can be expected from all things Cassiegate. Her dad is still lurking in the shadows and Dylan vows to eliminate him. He's excited to surprise Isa with the honeymoon she never got- a trip to Paris. This book, especially the first half was hot hot hot. It had tons of sex and BDSM scenes....almost too much. I was 4.5 UBER SIZZLING STARS! The final installment of The Art of D/s. This book picks up soon after The Art of Domination leaves off. Dylan and Isa are happily married and recovered as good as can be expected from all things Cassiegate. Her dad is still lurking in the shadows and Dylan vows to eliminate him. He's excited to surprise Isa with the honeymoon she never got- a trip to Paris. This book, especially the first half was hot hot hot. It had tons of sex and BDSM scenes....almost too much. I was hoping for more story, some action. Things really ramp up in the second half and that's what saved my rating. I love sexy controlling scenes but I needed more story from Dylan and Isa. We get more of Mistress Isabel in this book and I loved Dylan's ability to also switch to the submissive role to give Isa that semblance of control she's never had in her life. Something she needs for her emotional stability. But Dylan is still predominately the loving, protective Dom he's always been. Mistress Ella, you have a fantastic ability to describe erotic BDSM scenes. You can make me blush...which is no small feat. Okay, now for the reason I deducted a Goodreads star. Do not read the spoiler unless you've read this book. (view spoiler)[I didn't completely buy Dylan so quickly going for the annulment after his accident and her leaving. He HAD to know when she got a phone call in his hospital room after she sat there bedside for four weeks (who'd be calling her?) that the person calling HAD to be her dad threatening her- especially when she high-tailed it out of there. And if he's such a great security guy, he'd figure out the plane accident wasn't an accident. When he threw the papers at her in the hotel and said she wasn't worth it....I didn't believe that was the same Dylan we saw in Paris. (hide spoiler)] The book ends the way it needed to end. The epilogue gives us a sense of good things to come for this couple who seriously deserves happiness together and some semblance of a family unit. The author also teases us with Sawyer and his growing interest in the BDSM lifestyle. I'm hoping she's planted the seed for a Sawyer/Sonya story. His fierce loyalty for all things Dylan was unfailing. Loved him! Upon further contemplation, I can say at this point in my reading "career" this has got to rank one of the best "BDSM scene" written series I've experienced. So go forth and read. Another great book Ella Dominguez.

    5++++ HOT BDSM STARS.... WOW WOW WOW I absolutely LOVED this series. "Of course, there are the jackasses who insist we're both sick and need help. In my personal opinion, it's those people who deny their sexuality that need the help, not people like me and Isa. We're living out our fantasies with each other, were not hurting anyone and its completely consensual. Why can't the world understand that? fuck anyone who has the nerve to judge the way we decide to love each other." Dylan

Oh, I almost forgot, the hot, hot, sexcapades……….wowza!!! “………….a gentle spanking followed by a hellacious flogging and sweet vanilla with a twist sex. This is my life and I couldn’t and wouldn’t want it any other way.” Isa Young There is a lot of kinkiness in this book which is delicious. “My husband just gave me my dessert and I’ll be giving him his later.” The author does in amazing job in pushing the boundaries of her characters and her readers, just enough, to the point of being excruciatingly uncomfortable but all the action has a sense of kindness to it, and it is always consensual, a lifestyle choice….. “We’re living out our fantasies with each other, we’re not hurting anyone and it’s completely consensual. Why can’t the world understand that?

    OMG - I went to bed thinking about this book and woke doing the same. I can't tell you how fanfreakingtastic this book is but I am going try!! This book is the last book in The Art of trilogy series. As the end of a trilogy, you expect a HEA, it's the journey getting there that is anticipated and unexpected. All reading this book will have read the first two so we are all familiar with Dylan and Isa and their intense relationship. This book picks up with a delayed honeymoon trip to Paris. We get OMG - I went to bed thinking about this book and woke doing the same. I can't tell you how fanfreakingtastic this book is but I am going try!! This book is the last book in The Art of trilogy series. As the end of a trilogy, you expect a HEA, it's the journey getting there that is anticipated and unexpected. All reading this book will have read the first two so we are all familiar with Dylan and Isa and their intense relationship. This book picks up with a delayed honeymoon trip to Paris. We get to experience the devotion, the passion, the sorrow, the intense sexual connection that both Dylan and Isa have for one another. I felt that this book delved deep into their all consuming love story. Of course, the sex is hot, hotter, the HOTTEST ever!!!! They way Ella writes about it is beautiful, erotic and down right SMOKIN!!!!! I had to take a break because I had to sit under a fan- I got too hot just remembering. Ella brought out every emotion while I was reading- love, contentment, angst, sorrow, hopefulness, sadness, anger, and happiness. I really felt that as a reader, I learned the intensity and meaning of the BDSM lifestyle better as it is a major part of Dylan and Isa's relationship. I felt it, understood it and at times questioned it but it was them and it worked. The first part of the book concentrates on their intense love as the two spend time in Paris. We know that Isa's father is still lurking and plotting the destruction of their relationship. We see how he sets forth with his plan, how can a father be so evil? Can 2 people who seem so connected and know that they are soulmates, triumph over evil and still come out as strong? The journey in discovering is ever so wonderful. What I absolutely love in a book is an intense love story. I want to be able to feel and believe that it's true. I loved the FSoG trilogy because of the beautifully intense and passionate love story between Christian and Ana. It had kinky f*ckery but in the end, it was a love story in the true sense, according to me. The Art of series is also a true love story. Dylan and Isa have been added to my collection of favorite couples. I felt their passion, their love and their commitment to each other. The ending was almost perfect in my mind, I would liked to have know that Isa.............you have to read and we can discuss later. Lastly, I must add that I absolutely love the covers to all 3 books as is. They are so unique and special to the books. I loved it when Ella included paintings in the book as well. They are such an important part of the books, I wished there had been more. The painting made you feel and be able to get in Isa's mind even more. I know there has been talk of changing the covers but I have to say again-don't cause they really are perfect as they are!! I truly marked many lines in the book but here are some of my favorite quotes- I'm driving him insane, the same way he does me and I love it. I'm in control right now and I love it. I call the shots right now and I fucking love it. -Mistress Isabel Yes, that voice; that tone; it will be the death of me someday, I just know it. She knows exactly how to get me to do exactly what she wants and I fucking love it. I love doing this for her. I love doing this for me. More importantly and unnerving is that I love giving myself over to her, even if it means giving up control. I never thought I would feel this way. Never. Whatever Sir wants, Sir gets. He's a strict Dom and with a viscous sadistic streak a mile wide, but I love it just as much as I love him. She trusts me enough to share her miserable history with me and all the gory details. She loves me enought to share her fears, hopes, and dreams. She loves me completely. True love, power exchange, contentment and most importantly, trust - have finally graced me with their presence and my life with Isa is complete. I love you more that life itself, Dylan Nathaniel Young, I love you more that I love myself, in fact, I love you because you're so generous and kind to me, and because you give me the discipline I need, when I need it and without cruelty or anger, and because you control me despite your need for it. I received this ARC for an honest review- thank you Ella for allowing me the pleasure of this read!! :-)

I honestly cannot say enough about this series and Ella's writing!!! I've followed it from the start and have waited with baded breath for the release of each book. The first book was Ahhh-mazing, and it was hard to imagine how the series could get any better. But, Ella somehow figured out how to make the next book even more fabulous than the last, and TAoC is no exception. I love this series so much I want to yell from the rooftops!!! This book is mind-blowingly exquisite, surreal, phenomenal, insanely brilliant, amazingly perfect, erotic, sensual, and passionate. I love everything about this book!! EVERYTHING. SINGLE. WORD. EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT. I LOVE ……. His passion for her. Her passion for him. His love for her. Her love for him. His ownership of her. Her ownership of him. His strong hand and sweet heart . Her strong will and pure heart. His need for her. Her need for him. The strength of his character. The hidden strength of hers. Their strong and raw emotional connection. Their explosive and all-consuming physical connection. Their raw and passionate addiction to one another. I just love them. I love them together. I love this story! I love this SERIES! The connection between Isa and Dylan is almost indescribable. You really NEED to read the series to understand FEEL it. Ella does a remarkable job making you feel and experience everything exactly the way Isa and Dylan do. Ella is a creative genius, an artist in the way she combines the story with Isa's art. This is simply amazing. Ella, where do you come up with this stuff??? I love how your mind works. If you love a hot- steamy-grab-you-from-the-start BDSM story what the heck are you waiting for????? This IS your next series. Oh, have I mentioned how much I love this series?!?!?!?!?!

With Mr. Sylvain Reynard's, Gabriel's Inferno & Gabriel's Rapture, this is fore-more my fave books. It's all I want in an ending book for a trilogy/series: 1. Honesty [on the writing]. 2. Depth [ditto]. 3. A conclusion [A REAL ONE]. 4. Coherence on characters AND plot. 5. Not wanting to extend a story/plot that could derive in a mush of non-senses and gets old & boring. 6. Alternative POV's from characters. Isabel is fragile than ever, but always her dichotomy is present: wanting to solve her problems by her own; not wanting to be pitiful. Dylan wanting to become the solution for her problems, surrendering his control, his will, his heart. Even their codependent relationship, which makes them unable to coexist without each other, they are similar and different, because and in spite of their own fears and darkness, but living thru different ways. I'm speechless. Exhausted, hipersensible, excited, and satisfied. That's how you're leaving me with this ending. PS. Love watercolours so much!!! I even made them my profile pic here, fb, and twitter; oh! also my cover photo @ fb! UPDATE 04-25-13 Holy readings!!!! [Bow] Mistress Ella [Bow] I'm amazed and thrilled to my bones and core. What an amazing, incredible, ecstatic, orgasmic, and bizarre love story. All those twists during the story where really cliffhangers, by theirselves. More to come.... UPDATE 04-18-13 OMG!!!! Just downloaded my ARC! Thanks, Ms. Ella. now... come to me, Dylan... just finished reading first 3 chapters and were amazing!!! sending feedback, Ms. Dmgz, ASAP.

    Holy Angst Overload! This Pussycat needs to take a deep breath and calm her tits... This series finale was edge of seat panty gripping stuff as drama after drama unfolded. It was incredibly emotional, sweltering hot, and executed perfectly. If you are intrigued by BDSM romances or the idea as a whole, then bypass the 101 handbook and read this series, because Dylan Young will teach you everything you need to know. ;) BOOK REVIEW – The Art of Control (The art of D/s, #3) Ella Dominguez “You know, de Holy Angst Overload! This Pussycat needs to take a deep breath and calm her tits... This series finale was edge of seat panty gripping stuff as drama after drama unfolded. It was incredibly emotional, sweltering hot, and executed perfectly. If you are intrigued by BDSM romances or the idea as a whole, then bypass the 101 handbook and read this series, because Dylan Young will teach you everything you need to know. ;) BOOK REVIEW – The Art of Control (The art of D/s, #3) Ella Dominguez “You know, despite what society says, sexual sadism isn’t actually a sickness. Quite the contrary, it’s a lifestyle choice. Some people just need to pull their heads out of their asses and wake up to the new sexual revolution.” Ella exceeded all my expectations with this 3rd and final instalment of the Art of D/s trilogy. Whether you enjoy BDSM ‘erotica’ based fiction or not, there is no denying the fact that Ella Dominguez has taken a taboo subject and translated it into one of acceptance and beauty. I’m not saying this series is an easy read. Dylan is the ultimate ‘dominating’ alpha, he can be incredibly intimidating and highly self absorbed but the love that he and Isa feel for each-other goes above and beyond anything ‘vanilla.’ As a reader it consumes you. It pulls you in… and it doesn’t let go. The bedroom/dungeon/shower/public bathroom cubicle/sex-club scenes are HOTTER THAN HELL! They even managed to make me blush more than once and that is something in itself! But that’s only one aspect of it, because this book is so much more! Its not just another ‘smutty’ read, as it also covers some serious subject matters – primarily one of a shattered past; a childhood plagued by domestic violence and abuse, given to us as snippets from Isa’s journal entries. Some of it is upsetting… you have been warned! * With the threat of Isa’s Father still at large, Dylan and Sawyer are doing everything they can to gather evidence of the Murder of Isa’s Mother, and the role in it which Emilio Ibanez played. With Isa’s attack at the hands of Cassie and Alex still racking her of nightmares, Dylan decides to get her out of Denver for a while, as he surprises her with a belated Honeymoon trip to Paris. With the double first person narrative we play witness to some real comical, quirky, yet beautiful and heartfelt scenes as they both succumb to the passion and consummate their marriage in the city of Love. And in true Isa and Dylan style, they soon become acquainted with other practising dom/sub couples at a BDSM club and make a new friend in a Dom called, Luke. “What is it about Paris that I just can’t keep my hands off of you?” I ask him inbetween kisses. “It has nothing to do with Paris and everything to do with my raw sexuality, baby. I’m fucking irresistible.” “Oh how I love to watch you fly, my precious angel.” When Dylan comes under threat by a man wielding a knife in a side street of Paris, it doesn’t come without its suspicions. Then, to make matters worse, Isa’s ex boyfriend turns up on the scene to stir trouble. Meanwhile, Sawyer is holding the fort back home and he’s about to prove his worth when Mr Ibanez sinks to a whole new level and distributes video evidence of Dylan and Isa’s secret lifestyle. With the national papers and paparazzi taking a keen interest in Dylan and Isabel’s ‘sordid’ sex life, it seems nowhere is safe for the newlyweds, and its just about to get a whole lot worse… * I have so many scenes highlighted on my kindle it’s unbelievable! I thought the dialogue was amazing, the writing flowed exceptionally well and the characters grew exponentially, especially Sawyer! We are gifted with his own POV in certain scenes of this book which was a real treat as I felt myself crushing on him by the end of book two. I just hope Ella gives him his own story.  Fifty Shades of Grey fans should definitely read this series! Cold Showers Guaranteed! 4.5 stars.

    4.5 Stars I truly enjoyed this series. As I told my friend, this whole series was just so engrossing. Just when you thought Isa and Dylan were on their way to a HEA... something would happen. In the end, it was a heart-wrencing story of healing, devotion, survival and unconditional love. There were some aspects of the book, that being their sadistic tendencies, that were not my favorite. However, I really just overlooked it because it was such a superbly told story. And not being a big fan of of 4.5 Stars I truly enjoyed this series.

I kept going like, why can't he just leave them alone! I just knew going into this book he would try to destroy Isa based on the ending of the last book, but I did not see coming how messed up he could be. Something I didn't like was (view spoiler)[how obvious it was that Isa's dad was behind some of the events. (hide spoiler)] Especially with Dylan. Hello?! Get your shit together and stop assuming the worst of Isa. Most of the book takes place during Isa and Dylan's honeymoon, and for the most part things go well. There are a few moments that were like, Oh Daaaamn! but they weren't entirely surprising for me. I was excited that Isa's Domme came out to play a few times! I missed her in the last book. There was a lot of public naughtiness during their honeymoon ;) And of course Dylan would go out of his way to satisfy his dirty, dirty mind. Lol. "Oh, my sweet lover, I'm going to tie you down and fuck you so good tonight" One of the things that drove me somewhat crazy during this book was (view spoiler)[Isa's overwhelming emotional issues. There were times where it was a bit much (hide spoiler)] . Isabel Dylan Things get really crazy and sad towards the end of the book. I wanted to slap Dylan! WTF man?! Dylan can be amazingly stupid and emotional. But, thank God, they get their hea, although there were times I didn't think it was going to happen. I love him entirely, completely, eternally and infinitely, and beyond the stars and universe. I think I need to take a break from such emotionally charged books for a while after this.

    5+Stars!! I ADORE Ella Dominguez! Another Work of Art to complete the series! This book was such a fantastic continuation of the story of Dylan & Isa. So many series end on a flat note, creating more of a long winded epilogue than a book .. THIS IS NOT the case when it comes to The Art of Control. There is so much action from cover to cover ... with story lines that began in the previous books in the series, but also new story lines that give us more insight into some of the other characters.

I crave for more because I ship for this couple so freaking hard it hurts! Ms. Dominguez really doesn't disappoint! I'm utterly satisfied with the final installment of The Art Of D/s series. This book exceeds beyond my expectations. The BDSM theme is presented in such a way that inspires myself a whole new perspective about this lifestyle. And not to forget how I've maddeningly fallen in love with the hero and heroine. They are both equally amazing. Tormented with their own past problems and baggages, but with an exquisitely beautiful connection and love. The Art of Control is yet another journey that proves how these two beautifully damaged souls are destined for each other. “I’ll never get enough of this woman - my wife. I want to please her. I want to own her completely: Mind, body and soul. I want her to be my physical property. She is my physical property. When her eyes meet mine, I know without a doubt that I would do anything for her - anything.” - Dylan Young After all dramas happened in the previous books, Dylan and Isa are only a step behind their peaceful marriage life. They are supposed to be having a sweet honeymoon in Paris, but Isa’s father is threatening to tear the happy couple apart and Dylan’s wealth doesn’t a slightest bit scare Emilio Ibanez. If anything, Isa’s father wants Dylan dead and he’s not holding back in planning immediate actions to end Dylan’s life once and for all. Isa’s consumed with fears of losing her husband night and day despite of Dylan’s reassurance that everything will be just fine. Dylan’s soothing words are short lived as nightmares haunt Isa every night. Will they eventually have their happily ever after? Or is Emilio Ibanez going to own and trap Isabel’s life once again? “We have a lifetime ahead of us to decide what we're going to do. I love you; heart and soul, and we're going to grow old together. We'll make things right and find our way, no matter how long it takes or where life takes us.” - Dylan Young Thank you for this one beautiful love story, Ms. Dominguez! For those of you who haven't read this series, you just don't know the amazing journey you're missing out!

    Dylan and Isa. This story continues to go deeper into their story of love and trust. I should warn you all that this one is a serious tear-jerker! If you have not read books 1 and 2 stop reading this review now and go read them, otherwise this is just one gigantic spoiler! Dylan and Isa are now husband and wife. They are continuing to explore their lives in the BDSM culture. Isa has discovered that she is a true switch and Dylan has discovered that he likes to be spanked sometimes. Kinky? Hell ye Dylan and Isa. This story continues to go deeper into their story of love and trust. I should warn you all that this one is a serious tear-jerker!

They are continuing to explore their lives in the BDSM culture. Isa has discovered that she is a true switch and Dylan has discovered that he likes to be spanked sometimes. Kinky? Hell yes! [image error] The happy couple are off to Paris for their honeymoon. They have survived a horrible series of events brought on by Isa's sick and twisted father. He continues to taunt and torment them. While in Paris, he reaches out and starts plucking their strings until they are wound so tight, Isa is afraid she may break. “What is it about Paris that I just can’t keep my hands off of you?” I ask him in between kisses. “It has nothing to do with Paris and everything to do with my raw sexuality, baby. I’m fucking irresistible,” he growls just before he shoves his tongue down my throat. I can’t argue with that.” Isa has to make a choice, and it is her most difficult one yet. She is stuck between two worlds and she has to find out if she has the strength to save the man she loves, even if it means loosing everything. This book killed me. Isa, you poor dear. I wanted to hug you and tell you everything would be alright, even when I wasn't sure if it would be. Dylan, I could have smacked him upside the head. Dylan is just lucky that I love him, because he needs some serious discipline for some of this things he says and does in this book. “Mistress Isabel ties me down and pushes my limits of pain and pleasure, and I’m the one screaming out her name. True love, power exchange, contentment and most importantly, trust – have finally graced me with their presence and my life with Isa is complete.” Another great read from Ms. Dominguez! I adore her writing and this series is a classic!

    I'm not sure I can write a review that accurately states how I feel about this series . This book was sadistic and angsty to the max. They went through soooooo much ,I cannot even begin to state . (view spoiler)[ they just had to break ,the stress of Everything was too much,really too much . They always stay true to their love/obsession. I'm not gonna say I'm in love with their sweet romance or any other shit like that. This wasn't sweet and It really wasn't my normal cup of team .

The heroine was the best really ,she made this story !!! Sawyer was my next best character ,kinda wish he was the hero instead of the real hero. Seems too not macho to be a Dom , he really faded away for me ,I found myself just looking Isabel in most of the scenes to see her response then double back to his . I could her thoughts and connect with her a whole lot more .I really just can't picture it . He can even fire a gun properly . (view spoiler)[That shit made me loose all faith in his ability to protect her(Not that he even could). That could have been handled better but otherwise this story messed me up a whole lot more than just the hero. Sigh I love the heroine. I can see why people enjoy these sadistic books .It was absolutely crazy how this story unfolded .Thinking about the last 1/4 of the book was EVERYTHING! Their was some crazy physiological shit was going in this author's head because really . I'm so conflicted ,I really don't know if i loved it . I definitely have strong feelings enough to take a good while to write this review . I really must say the writing wasn't great but the story was golden for me . (I cannot even make up my mind in my own review ..sigh X_X) . I'm giving cudos for writing this shit and it made me more interested to step out of my nice little bubble and read some sadistic stories once a month lol . 4.5 stars Cause this shit was good (YES i have reconciled with my inner demons ) (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

Will they have their happily ever after? ***I personally LOVE The Art of D/s series, and am super pleased with the ending.

Before I go into the gushy part of reviewing this last book in the trilogy I have got say that I was very close to knocking a star off at the 1st quarter of this book. I was having a hard time reading so many sex scenes - yeah I know seems ridiculous doesn't it, but there was such a fest going on I was getting frustrated at where the story had disappeared to. But I can happily say it settled down and the plot came exploding back to the forefront, stayed on track and oh boy I can only say that this ended perfectly. I have been glued to this trilogy and I am little sad it's come to an end. Dylan and Isa will forever stay with me and I will without a doubt revisit them. I can hand on heart say this is only the third author that I've read that brought to life the sadism element in a loving way in the BDSM enviroment i.e. nothing to do with captivity or stockholm syndrome. It was hard to swallow some of the nastier/pain filled scenes but they were written with such care and attention and the love of these two characters completely out shone the intense play that they loved and needed. Yes this is what the whole story revolved around, it was centre stage but it was so much more too and it was brought to life in an extremely colourful way.

    I'm stuck. The first half of the book (for me)was a little on the too much bdsm not enough story. I know, I know, I'm slapping myself for say 'too much' so I would rate the first half of the book a 3.5 stars. BUT....... The second half ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF. I loved every word that was written and every conversation that was had. So it was a definite 5 star rating. BUT....... The absolute winner for me in the third installment of The Art of D/s HAS to be, hands down, final, do not pass go - do not col I'm stuck.

The absolute winner for me in the third installment of The Art of D/s HAS to be, hands down, final, do not pass go - do not collect $200 is Sawyer. He made me think dirty thoughts (that were already there thanks to the awesomeness Author) and made me want to say "Please let me be worthy" and fall into sub pose to the dominating Sawyer. Sawyer is going to make a spankingly titalising (see what I did there) Dom. So overall I have to give this book in the series a 4.25, but I'm upping it to 4.5 cause of Sawyer's sexiness and appeal. Mmmmmmm - Sawyer....... Just saying.....
