Away From Me by Sophie Oak

Erotic, Novella, BDSM

Shattered by the loss of his wife, Callum Reed is a man surrounded by rules designed to protect him. He has found the perfect submissive in Gaby Sullivan, until she breaks his cardinal rule. 

After three years of perfect obedience, Gaby declares she wants love. Love isn’t in their contract, so Cal lets her go. But Gaby has a secret reason for leaving. When Cal discovers the truth, nothing will stop him from following her. On a secluded island paradise, Callum will do anything to prove he’s the perfect Master for his defiant, loving sub. 

DiDi’s Review…..

A couple things from the get go…This is the first story I’ve read from Sophie Oak and I don’t care to read novellas, I never seem to get a connection with the characters because the stories are so short…THAT being said…AWAY FROM ME…totally satisfied me, I felt like I knew Gaby and Master Callum. 

I seriously wasn’t expecting this book to be erotic, BDSM AND emotional. Gaby has been Cal’s sub for three years, she wants his love and marriage. Because of the death of his first wife Cal has refused both to love and marry ever again. Something happens to Gaby, that makes her think Cal will never want her again and she decides to leave him, especially since he does not love her. This story is about the road to Cal winning Gaby back. This story may not touch everyone like it did me, maybe it touched me because of the struggles Gaby goes through as a result of her incident….THERE IS A HEA in this story and the part when Gaby “bares all” to Cal and his reaction was tender and sweet. 

I can’t even say much more about this, just thinking about the story gets the tears flowing. This story hits close to home, not the BDSM part, but because the incident that happens to Gaby has happened to one of my family members, therefore I have witnessed first hand  the emotions and feelings that Gaby goes through about self image.

  1. A book that you could say dont judge it by its cover (ick). This was a 6 chapter book but boy did it pack a punch in those 6 chapters. Whether you practice BDSM or not I think every woman could relate to this book. Not just because of the personal issue Gaby went through but also walking away from someone you love because they are unable to give you what you need emotionally from them. How many women go into a relationship thinking I can change him and end up heartbroken when they cant.. This book definately had a great ending…

  2. Cindy…I totally agree with you. I am glad you brought the cover up. I kept passing over this book just because of the cover made me think the woman was the Domme….and being the suspected subbie that I am, I don’t want to read about a Domme, I want to read about a Dom. I can’t remember who suggested I read it or if I finally read the description, but I am so glad I read it. BTW…I am not saying I won’t ever read about a Domme, it’s just not for me, but hey, a year ago I didn’t even know there was such thing as BDSM romance books, much less read and like them and look at me now…..never say never.

  3. I loved this book. She did a great job with the characters and the story. I won’t give away spoilers, but I personally LOVE books with some angst in them, with real life problems, and this book delivered.

  4. Tymber I so agree, this book and your book The Reluctant Dom are both so emotional they earned a special place in my heart. Not to sound like a broken record, but Sophie Oak amazed me with how well she got the emotions across in this novella.

  5. Wow. I so admire you, Tymber. Reluctant Dom is one of my faves of all time. I’m still shocked that you know my name – much less that you’ve read my book. And thanks to Naughty D for the amazing review. This is a book that’s close to my heart. I wanted to write a physically imperfect heroine. Thank you for embracing her.

  6. Sophie, THANK YOU for stopping by! I can’t even begin to correctly express how much Gaby and Cal moved me. I have your Bliss series in my Mount TBR.
