Alyssa Sanders has taken care of herself since she was too
young to do so. But she’s all grown up and ready to get her life on the right
track.She heads to Chicago with her
life savings and a few prospects. She expects to get a job, find an apartment
and get on her way of settling down. What she doesn’t expect is to find her new
boss not only severely attractive and Dominant, but the son of an old friend.
Alex Trebelli would do anything for his father, so when he’s
asked to escort an old friend’s daughter to dinner he doesn’t hesitate to
agree. Except the daughter isn’t the small town young woman his father
described. She’s all grown up, full of beauty and curves, and a submissive
nature that draws out his dominant side.
When Alex explains he won’t be her friend, he can’t just be
her friend, he wants more, he wants to be her dominant, her boyfriend, she has
to decide if she’s going to take the leap. She’s never been good at a full time
D/s relationship, but Alex makes her feel safe and secure. She finds him easy
to be with, even when he’s being overprotective and bossy.
she manage to put aside her fears of failure, and self-doubt and give them a
real chance, or will she chose the safer route and keep clear of his sexy
smile, and dominant ways?
Book three of this series is just as good as the first two. In this
book we are taken on yet another emotional and yet thrilling roller
coaster. We are also introduced to Alyssa Sanders who can't seem to
catch a break or a breath in life. She seems to always have to be in
survivor mode, not being able to relax. However, one night...things
change, for the better; and her eyes are opened.
Then, there's Alex who works security at this super VIP BDSM club who
is keeping an eye out on her for her own good...plus he likes her...
Then he takes her in because her place is a crap-hole that needs to
be condemned. One day someone randomly shows up for her and starts
I thought the story was tangled and intriguing as it was. But then,
there's these twists that pop up that keep you on your toes guessing
what is going to happen. At points in the story I thought I had it
figured out than the author throws in another wrench and made me wonder
if I actually did know what was going on and what was going to happen.
Like I've said, I am not a fan of Erotica. Especially if the only
point is to have steamy explicit sex scenes. However, even though I
don't care for some of the language in the book(s), I really appreciate
that there is an actual story line and plot within the pages aside from
the sexual content.

worried her. Just as she was about to break her silence he stood in front her.
His hands dug into her hair and he pulled her head back to look up at him. The
pleasure and joy she expected to see alluded her. Instead firm, frank eyes
glared down at her.
"Where did you get the
cuffs?" he asked.
"The foot locker in the closet,"
she said, searching his expression. Anger did not lurk behind his words, but
displeasure shone through his eyes.
"What were your instructions?"
he asked, releasing her hair and moving down to his haunches, keeping their
"To come in here, strip, and kneel
with my hands behind my back and my eyes downcast," she answered and
before she could continue, he spoke.
"And in those instructions where did
I say to go into the closet and dig out a pair of cuffs?"
"Nowhere, but I—"
"You are trying to control the
situation." His words were given in a soft tone, but the implication was
"What? No. I was trying to add to it,
to give you more of what you wanted." She wished they could have the
"What I want, what I desire, is your
submission, your obedience. If I want your hands cuffed, I'll give you the
instructions or I'll do it myself. You wanted your hands bound. You wanted to
feel the cuffs on your wrists, bound, and waiting for me. Those were your
"Don't my desires matter?" she asked
with an edge that she quickly regretted at the instant raise of his eyebrow.
"Of course they matter. And I will
always take your desires into account. When you submit to me, you trust me to
give you want you want, what you need, and push your limits, but you don't
control what happens."
