Review: YES, MR. COLLINS by Charlotte DeCorte

Yes, Mr. Collins
by Charlotte DeCorte
DelSin Publishing
Release Date:  November 4, 2011
Series: Natasha and Mr. Collins – Book One

"Take off your clothes, Natasha."

Natasha Reynolds has worked well under her brilliant yet demanding boss, Mr. Collins, for over a year. One night he accuses her of making a mistake and their dynamics take a dark but erotic turn. When Mr. Collins confesses to seeing Natasha as his prey she is forced to admit her submissive side can no longer be completely confined to their working relationship. Just how well will this bunny survive being a wolf’s carnal plaything?

*** This novella contains spanking and light bondage, along with dominance and submission themes. It is meant for adults who enjoy reading about unconventional relationships.***

Natasha Reynolds has been an administrative assistant in the IT department for two years when she is suddenly transferred to work as the assistant to Peter Collins. It seems Mr. Collins is unable to keep an executive assistant around for longer than a few weeks and has refused to accept any more temporary help. Unbeknownst to Natasha he has handpicked her to work for him. After several days of stress induced vomiting, Natasha resolves to get a grip on herself and do whatever she has to do to make this treacherous situation work. Instead of reacting with anxiety over every task given to her, she would stop being afraid and do the work just as perfectly as Mr. Collins did his.

I really enjoyed Natasha’s character. She was a bit feisty and even though she had a healthy respect for her boss she wasn’t a complete doormat. We got to delve into her mind and see both her fears and triumphs. On the other hand, I didn’t like Mr. Peter Collins very much. I thought he was a cold, unemotional jerk who thought he was better than everyone else. He was a very demanding boss that accepted nothing less than perfection from Natasha. But then I began to like Mr. Collins when he finally stopped being Natasha’s difficult boss and became her Dominant lover instead. I thought the scenes in which he got real personal with her and “showed her the way” were intense. Mr. Collins preyed upon Natasha for over a year while patiently weaving the net to finally catch her. The subtle ways he played with her mind was quite masterful. 

Natasha and Mr. Collins’ relationship was definitely not conventional. But none of the relationships in Charlotte DeCorte’s books are. I loved the interactions and the banter between these two characters.  Yes, Mr. Collins was another fascinating look into the psychology of a dark relationship. I really enjoyed this novella and am eagerly waiting to see what happens next with Mr. Collins and Natasha.


  1. Completely different than what I thought it was going to be. I was expecting this dark novella to be about Mr Collins from Pride & Prejudice. hahaha Wow. Anywaaays, great review!

    1. Too funny! I think this is just a little different from the Jane Austen novel. :-D

  2. Hahahaha. would make an interesting remake. =D Dirty, dirty Mr Collins!
