Drea's Review:

Jessica’s car goes caput in the middle of a bad storm. She treks to the nearest house, which just happens to be a private bondage club. The owner takes pity on her and lets her inside, provided she signs some paperwork. Jessica is too cold to be able to read the page she’s signing—a bad thing considering she’s an accountant and knows the importance of reading the fine print. What she discovers inside is the arousing world of Doms and subs. But the man who helped her out of the cold, Master Z, is the most arousing of them all.

Let me start off by saying I read romance for the escapism aspect of it. And this book is pure escapism. Why? Because Master Z can read minds.

I don’t mean he can guess what you’re thinking. No, this guy can actually read your mind. He can even get “images” from a person if he’s close enough. On top of that super human feat, he’s so super nice it’s almost ridiculous (but swoon-worthy, yes). He’s hot, successful, probably loaded (we know his trousers sure are) and protective. Yet he’s also all firm in that sexy Dom way and big into rules + fairness. (I love fairness!)

There’s loads of hot sex, some paddling, plenty of bondage, and even a happy ending all crammed into this quick read.

Grab this if you like your escapism to have hot sex, spanks, and a super human Dom in a contemporary setting.

  2. It sounds interesting, but it's too bad I'm not really into erotica books. I have read 1 or 2 but maybe I still need to try more.

    1. Erotic romance/erotica is definitely an acquired taste. There's no shame in that. Thanks for stopping by! <3

    1. Interesting is a good word for it. I would have liked to have seen something longer with him, but this was good, too.

    2. My favorite thing about the series is that from book to book you see a lot of the same people since it takes place for the most part at the club. So you get to see Z and Jessica as their relationship keeps growing. And Z always plays a part with his talents though not always so woo-woo-ish. lol He can really read some body language and keeps tabs on all of the ladies that come in the rest of the time.

  4. I think I'm liking that strange combination, a Dom that can read minds but is a supper nice guy. I can't even begin to put a Dom and a nice guy on the same sentence, and that's because I don't read a lot BDSM so I have this skewed idea of what a Dom really is. I alway think they have the say personality in and out of bed. I love that he' s loaded...LOL

    1. I think most of the popular BDSM stuff features Alphaholes. Some people like that sort of thing. My favorites are the ones in between Alphahole and completely fantastical...someone who has a few flaws.

  6. I have had this in my TBR pile for-EVER. I'm thinking it needs to stop languishing at the bottom--it sounds fantastic (what an excellent way to pass the time when your car breaks down, LOL!). Great review, Drea ;)

    1. I know! I'd be okay with being stranded in the rain if it meant it ended that way ;)
      Thanks for peeking in!

  7. I really like this series, though I found the most recent book to be a little too long and drawn out. Great review. I hope you enjoy the rest of the series.
