Mark’s life as a surgeon keeps him away from his wife Lynn and his children. He just wants to come home at night, crawl into bed and rest. Lynn is afraid her marriage is in big trouble she and Mark haven’t been intimate in forever it seems. Maybe it’s time to shake things up.

Lynn yearns for what she and Mark had before the four children and his surgical practice became so large. Self-gratification no longer is as effective as her man.


Mark feels guilty for not having enough time to spend with his family, especially his beautiful wife. The practice is growing and he’s needed in surgery until late into the evening most days.


A bit of bad news on the money end of the business triggers Mark to make a decision long overdue – to cut back on his hours and spend more time at home with his wife and family. He consults with his partners about the BDSM club to which they belong. It’s time to put the sizzle back into his and Lynn’s lovemaking.



Meanwhile, Lynn has spoken to the wives of Tom and Eli about her wants and desires. They agreed to help her.


An invitation to Club Rio Brava arrives. Mark and Lynn are very excited. He’s already visited the club to look around and even purchased a few toys to try out on his lovely wife.


Their first trip to the club is a success. Lynn is truly the submissive Mark needs and he’s the Master her body craves. Their life together is enhanced by their new roles.


LEARNING CONTROL, the fourth installment of the CLUB RIO BRAVA Series is one I’ve been looking forward to reading. Ann Jacobs offers up a riveting conclusion to the series and I, for one, will miss visiting with the members. Ann’s characters come to life and the picture she paints gives you a front row seat to all that’s happening. There were times when I would have traded places with any of the ladies of the series.


I missed Trace and Elle in this one but understand that Lynn would not want her brother to see her in all her glory as she submits to her Master. As with all the books in this series, you need to be at least eighteen years old to read them. Whether you’re a fan of the BDSM lifestyle, it pales in comparison to the true love Ms. Jacobs brings to life through her characters.


This book brings home the fact that where there’s love and a will; a couple can make a go of their life together despite the outside influences which include work and children. This series is a keeper! Don’t miss any of them.
