Review: Under His Hand by Anne Calhoun

Under His Hand
by Anne Calhoun

In this brief but seriously seductive story between a Navy SEAL and his sweet girlfriend, Anne Calhoun reminds readers of just how must trust and love is needed in a relationship. Calhoun takes it one step further and shows how that trust extends to the bedroom...

Drew Norwood returns home after an extended stay on a mission. He finds his girlfriend, Tessa in their home where she has left the windows open. Normally, this wouldn’t be a cause for concern, but in a rough neighbourhood, Drew is terrified for her safety. He grows angry because Tessa intentionally disobeyed his instructions to keep the windows closed. Tessa disrespected him and ignored his wishes. Now, Drew must remind Tessa that he loves her and that he is only looking out for her.

Tessa knows that she will be punished for this, but the promise of an erotic spanking sends tingles through her. Her fear arouses her and soon, Tessa finds herself trusting Drew with her body...and her heart.

I wished this book were longer because I found that I really liked Drew and Tessa together. Calhoun does a fantastic job of building anticipation and writing heroines who are new to BDSM in general. She simply excels in straddling the line between fear and arousal and I think that’s very much evident in this book! I can’t wait to read more for Calhoun’s work!
