At Her Feet

17290869 “At Her Feet” by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Synopsis: During a night of Web surfing for celeb gossip and masturbatory material, digital marketing producer Suzanne Kim stumbles across an intriguing thread while checking her profile on kinklife.com. Suzanne isn’t exactly looking, but the request for a very specific type of submissive from the attractive mistress, Mami-P, is hard to resist. Though the two hit it off during their first online conversation, Suzanne never imagines how strong their real life attraction and compatibility will be. After a few missteps in training, trust, and communication, Suzanne finds a deep love with her mistress, Pilar.
Overworked and overstressed in her daily life, Suzanne comes to crave their relationship for the visceral escape it provides, but before they can make the ultimate commitment, someone from Suzanne’s professional life threatens to disrupt their perfectly balanced bliss.
**This title includes BDSM and sexual situations some readers may find objectionable.**

4 out of 5 stars

In my own experience with BDSM and kink, I have known several Daddy/girl relationships (with different genders making up the various Daddys and girls) but I have never known anyone who was in a Mommy(Mami)/girl relationship.

Weatherspoon does a fantastic job of exploring that dynamic in this book. Suzanne is a biracial digital marketing tech, who has some experience with kink and submission but her past experience hasn’t given her what she craves the most – an intimate, loving connection with someone who cares for her, not just someone who sees her as a plaything.

She finds Pilar’s post on a kink website. Pilar is a Mami looking for her little girl and the ad strikes a chord with Suzanne who responds. The story is their coming together and building a relationship.

First, this story has some very hot f/f sex scenes. Very Hot! The sex was incredibly well written, but still has an element of romance as the two fall in love. I also liked how diverse the cast of characters are. Both main characters are women of color, but it’s written as fact, not as a fetish in itself. Minor characters cover the spectrum from gay men, butch lesbians, and trans-identified girls. I love that such a diverse spectrum is not the fetish focal point.

Pilar is also a woman of size and I loved that she is described as “round and lush”, and seen as hot and desirable. It’s nice to read something that doesn’t include body shaming.

I did not much care for the ending of the book. I appreciated the plot twist, but felt it was a bit rushed at the end. Still, definitely worth a read if you want something juicy! This is the softer side of kink, and while this particular fetish is not something I am into I can see it’s appeal through this story.

The cover art … no, just no. The cover shows a thin Caucasian woman. No one in this book is a thin Caucasian woman! It’s a definite miss.

  1. I went out and ordered this book, based on your review. I could say that it’s hot because it is. It is also very honest and human and invites empathy with the characters. This marks the great divide between erotica and pornography. In erotica, I read about people I have feeling for. In pornography, I read the rather mechanical recyclings of what one person does to another person’s body in order that some orgasm can be coaxed out of an eager set of genitalia.
    Thanks for your review.

  2. I often wonder, and have not bothered to find out, why cover art are often so misrepresenting the plot or characters. Some of JD Robb’s In death series cover art shows Eve Dallas with long hair and she definitely has short hair. It bothers me a lot. Do writers not have a say in the cover art?

    I have never hear of the expression “… (person) of size.” I like it, am going to use it to refer to myself. So much better than fat! 🙂 Take care
