“You’ll kneel for me without me having to tell you to. And when you do, you’ll feel so much better. Trust me.”
– Detective Sam Roberts
Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand. Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.
Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him. But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was exactly the kind of story I have been looking for. A BDSM story of a Dom helping a sub overcome his issues and finding his submissive self. The connection between Sam and Ryan was perfect. I loved how Sam wouldn’t let things go with Ryan. He asserted his dominance when Ryan needed it, even when he was being a pain in the ass. The way he took care of him and helped him was exactly what I was in the mood for. This story fell into my lap at the perfect moment and I was completely sucked in from the start. I enjoyed this story far more than book one and was so disappointed to reach the end. I wasn’t ready to be done with Sam and Ryan.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
