Madame by Sara Cate


They think they know me, but they have no idea.
As a professional Domme, I see men and women come and go. But no one ever sticks around, and I like it that way.
I have a secret to protect—at all costs.
So when the cocky, handsome, and submissive Clay Bradley weasels his way into my heart, I do the one thing I’ve always excelled at. I push him away—forever. And like a good boy, he listens.
But a few months later, during a chance encounter, he shows up again, but this time he isn’t alone. He has the stunning Jade on his arm. And she has a request of her own.
She wants me to teach her.
I should say no. Training a woman who makes my knees weak is bad enough. But this particular woman is dating the man who still has my heart. It’s a recipe for disaster.
Made worse by one simple fact—they know my secret.
And they won’t let go.
But how can I protect what’s mine if I’m holding onto them too?
Jade and Clay are the only ones who truly see me and the only ones who know… I’m so much more than Madame.

Overall Rating


Madame was such a fun ride!! Love a single mom romance and I love the fact that we got to see one of the most interesting characters from the series, in my opinion, get to be such a bad ass boss bitch but also show behind that Madame Kink persona! I’ve wondered what Eden’s book would look like and I was not disappointed, because moms are HOT too! PERIODT! As expected, there was a ton of kink in this book and a lot of taboo circumstances that may not appeal to everyone, but if you enjoyed this series thus far you would definitely love this ending.

This book features a dual timeline, and Dominant x submissive dynamics between three different people. A lot of teaching on Eden’s part to Clay, via flashback, and Jade in the present. It was a unique story for me, because I have not read a throuple with two women and one man before. I really found it extremely enjoyable. I absolutely loved Eden and I will always be a fan of a dom/sub relationship where the women are dominant. This was a second chance relationship for Clay and Eden and I ate up the pining from both of them! Jade and Eden’s relationship grew on me though it was tumultuous at first. I also really like the fact that there was a romance between each pairing separately before it was a relationship between all three of them.

Obviously, loved Eden. Jade, I grew to love. Clay… is cool too lol I gave this one 5 peppers for the kink content and presence of sexual content throughout though I wouldn’t call this erotica. There is a lot more to this story than just the sex. Each character has their own personal journey that we see them grow in but Eden’s is the most drastic from beginning to end. The sex is a part of that growth for all three.

I really also enjoyed the support in this community and that’s just one thing that I have loved about this Salacious Players Club series because the MCs are just super supportive. The writing was really smooth and easy to read. There’s just enough of the plot to balance the smut. Super hot definitely recommend this book. I’ve now read 3/6 of the books in the series and I have one more I think I’m going to go back for. It’s the end of an era but I loved the journey!

Spice Rating

5/5 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️

This book has a fair bit of kink throughout but the sexual content is not that high. In terms of frequency or amount, this is a three pepper read.

Favorite Quotes

Love is nothing more than a form of control. And from here on out, I will be the only one in control.

Is loving a person truly enough when existing together requires so much more?

Then she winds her fingers in my hair and smiles. “Good boy.” And just like that, those two words become my undoing.

One last command that I promise to obey. I always was good at obeying, wasn’t I?”

“Dominance is about so much more than control. It’s about connection and trust. It’s about pleasure and knowing what you want. Does the idea of having control of someone else turn you on?”

I’m Madame. And I’m Mama. Who am I without those two things?

“My girlfriend wants to watch us.”

Eden is more than a sexy body and beautiful face. She’s a force. She’s like the sun, and we are all orbiting around her, basking in her glow. We are just grateful to be in her presence.

“You really want to torture him, don’t you? I don’t think your pet is going to last much longer.”

“Don’t go easy on him,”

“I don’t want her to see anyone else. I want her with us. She belongs to us.”

“After just a couple of nights, I feel very strongly that you care about her, and I care about her, and she cares about us, so why the hell shouldn’t we at least try?”

Love is nothing but a form of control. Manipulation. Torture. It’s just another way for us to make each other miserable.
