Summary: Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can’t for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club.

Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club’s board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub – a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?

Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn’t, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, un-collared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?

Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it’s not in their contract?

Kande’s Review:

Well to say this book is addicting is putting it mildly. The amount of details used in this story is incredible. Since the first paragraph of the book I instantly feel like I am the main character. I can feel the chill as the author describes the cold.  The interior of the club was so detailed I actually felt like I was there. The mystery man she describes is enough to cause anyone shivers and then when they finally meet, the first words he says to her. Perfect. 

The instant bond that Jayden and Catherine grow together has me falling in love with them. The moment they go into the locked room and he begins questioning her... it's obvious of the chemistry those two have. I've never read about two people so in tune with each other without even speaking. Then the truth coming about her previous Masters didn't dis-concern Jayden but in fact it made him want her more. Made him want to show her how it can be when done right. There first scene together was incredible. It had me shivering while reading. HOT! 

The dirty talk and dominance of Jayden is wonderful and not overly done at all. He is dominant and caring, very rare for some stories.  The game he creates is one of excitement and fun for her as she tries her best to beat it.. but when she sees the toy he wants to play with she becomes afraid and he cares for her instantly instead of becoming mad. Being a proper dom he ends the scene and takes her away from the club. He gives her a card and tells her to call him again if she wants to continue.
He helps her heal from her past abuse and then the unthinkable happens. That four letter word that we all know.  LOVE. How can a cold hearted man learn to love so quickly? What happens now? What happens when other subs come into the picture? What happens when her submission is tested?  Well I won't spoil anymore for you! You need to read it for yourself, you must! Go go go! Do it now! 

I found myself unable to do anything until I finished the story... I couldn't put it down. The characters are brilliant, super thought out and detailed. I feel as if I've known Jayden and Catherine for a long time. At the end of the story... I needed more, I craved more. She drew me into the story so quickly, it became addicting!  The story is so delicious it leaves you engrossed in the story unable to do anything until its complete! I'm easily going to read this story over and over again and then buy the sequel when it comes out this summer! 

Can I just say, as a reader of Fifty Shades of Grey...  this story beats it by 100% I am so thrilled with this story and love the BDSM aspect of it.  The author really knows what she is talking about and her details are incredible.  I highly recommend this book with all that is good and holy in this world.

I give this story:
