DeeJay's Rating

I love a good BDSM story, and this one was it. Some of these books just do too much and they try too hard. But I think this was perfect. There was just the right amount of push and pull, give and take. It was a story of a Dom and a Sub, and though there was BDSM, there was romance too.

So I really liked the premise of the story. Sara's master dies and leaves her to his broke, loner nephew that he hardly even spoke to. Realistically, she didn't have to go to the nephew, but circumstances kind of pushed them together. I liked Cal. At first you think he's some kind of weak little boy that is going to have to be turned into a Dom, but it turns out he already is one. He just didn't know it. I really liked how he could all Dom-ish one moment and then be pretty damn sweet the next. I really thought he was kind of cute and just took charge of the strange situation he was thrown into. He fit with Sara's character as there was no doubt that she loved being a submissive. I say, if you're going to be a Dom or Sub, you better commit to it. In this book, it made for more interesting characters because they both committed to their roles and enjoyed them. I also liked Lyon, the lawyer to the Doms, and I'm interested in finding out more about him. He definitely has a story to tell.

Though HOT, I've read better BDSM sex scenes. But I was pleased with these. I think I just really liked Cal and Sara, so the scenes worked for me. The two had great chemistry so the passion was seamless.

Do I recommend? Yes! The book isn't long at all and gets right to the point. I practically read it in one sitting. I haven't read the other books in this box set, but I definitely give this one a thumbs up.
