Becca Schuler has always fantasized about bondage, but does that really make her depraved? According to an ex-boyfriend, it does.
After losing her job, and with no way to pay her rent, Becca hits a local bar to drown her sorrows. The last thing she expects is to meet a mysterious woman who assures that she can make Becca’s dream a reality. Is there really a company called Safeword LLC that places submissive women with dominant men per their preferences on a simple application?
Knowing she has nothing to lose, Becca fills out the form on Her placement lands her in the sensual and strict hands of Lane and Ross Ellison, who train her to be their ideal submissive. But when Becca’s fear of not being perfect weaves its way into their lives, she sets out to be just that and unknowingly risks losing it all.

The First Order
 is the first book in the Safeword LLC Series by author Peyton Elizabeth and introduces readers to Rebecca Schuler. Becca is on a mission of self-discovery, trying to determine what she wants out of her own life and sexuality. She has lost her job, her boyfriend because of her sexual needs, and she might just lose her home due to the fact she has no money now. But one moment in time changes it all. 

Kennedy Van Camp over hears her story of woe and hands her a business card to Safeword LLC with the assurance she will find all she needs. After some internal debate, Becca decides to go for it—and what she discovers about herself surprises even her. 

I admired Becca from the beginning. She is quiet and shy, but has an inner core of steel you can’t help but respect. She might be a sub in the bedroom, but she is not a doormat to be walked on outside of it.

Becca’s Doms come in the very sexy package of fraternal twins, Lane and Ross Ellison. While Becca is hesitant at first, Ross and Lane are certain she is everything they ever wanted.  Like Yin and Yang, Ross and Lane are as different as night and day, but the balance of firm and tender turns out to be just what Becca needs to bring her out of her comfort zone. 

Lane and Ross each take time to get to know Becca one on one, which I really enjoyed. The slow and steady approach, allowing Becca to grow comfortable with them before pushing for more, made them the perfect Dominants for the unsure sub.

The BDSM in this book is used to enhance the characters and plotline rather than the kink of the sex scenes. I could feel the trust level gradually building throughout the course of the story, and the BDSM elements play a crucial role in bringing this threesome closer together.

I for one am really looking forward to the next book in this series.  Ms. Elizabeth has a series I want more of, and I can’t wait to find out which trio surrenders next to the power of love.
