Blurb: Once a woman’s deepest, darkest desires have been exposed—whetting her appetite for taboo pleasures of the flesh—her unquenchable hungers will not be denied.
Floggers and whips

Chains and leather restraints

Erotic rewards and punishments…oh my!

Seduced by erotic stories and the forbidden lure of Dominance and submission, Evie Sloan longs to explore the scintillating delights firsthand. While some fantasies are better left to the imagination, for the chance to visit a real BDSM club, she’s willing to take a risk.

Been there, done that, seen it all—or so jaded Dominant Niko Kovalenko thought. Evie’s arrival on the scene reawakens long-dormant passions and ramps them up to a whole new level. She’s an exciting challenge, a dangerous temptation, igniting the compulsion to posses. To collar.

Evie is no man’s submissive pet. Niko strips her bare, sheds light on all her secret desires and weaknesses, but it’s still not enough for him. To win her man, she’ll have to confront her fears and find a way to bridge the distance between them.

Review: This one was just not for me. Generally I love BDSM. Especially a story when one of the main characters is just getting into it. For me there is something super sexy about that mega alpha male. But this story just didn't deliver.

Evie was very wishy-washy and many times there were things she did or said that just didn't fit with her character. Her reluctance for certain things I bought, but then for her to turn around and do or say something that moments before clearly caused her to be uncomfortable baffled me.

While Niko was hot, his abrasiveness and pushiness with a woman he has known hours bothered me. She has never experienced BDSM but he gives her a public punishment even though she is protesting. Yeah she got hers ;) but the entire "I'm the Dom and I know what my sub needs" even though they know nothing about each other, and she's not really his sub (she's only supposed to be observing) didn't work for me.

The sex didn't really rev me either. Kinky and dominant? Yes, but I got no tugs or tummy swoops while reading it. I don't think I will judge this author on this story. Her ability to paint a vivid, vibrant image was great. The ability to tell a story was good, but for me it was the "story" itself that left me wanting.

I would like to read more from her because she is a talented writer this story just didn't work for me.
