Review: Brand (The Donovan Dynasty #2) by Sierra Cartwright

He wants her subject to his will. She’s scared she may never want to get away.

The first time Sofia McBride meets the strong and determined Cade Donovan, he warns her to keep her distance. She tells herself to heed his words, but she’s stunned to realize her depth of attraction to this intimidating man.

She knows she should stay away from him, but try as she might, she’s unable to resist him or his sexy, erotic demands. The deeper she becomes ensnared, the more she realizes she may never want to escape.

All his life, enigmatic rancher Cade Donovan has chosen women who don’t expect too much from him. But when a storm strands him with Sofia, his lovely, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer event planner, all his dominant and protective instincts flare.

Cade wants everything she has to offer, but he soon discovers Sofia’s beauty hides a determination he hasn’t counted on. Her untamed responses send him on a journey that will banish his demons and change them both forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal play.

For you Sierra Carwright fans, you have to get this.  It. Is. HOT! I think this is one of the hotter novels she has written.  I thought the last Donovan brother – Connor – was kinky.  He did, after all, go to clubs and such.  But Cade . . . *fanning self* He has this lovely barn that is mostly empty except of the loft.  In the loft is some fascinating “furniture.”

Sofia didn’t know she wanted to experience any of it until she saw it.  Then OMG.  This book was very heavy on the BDSM scenes. *cold shower needed* The chemistry between Sofia and Cade was almost instantaneous and highly combustible, not to mention far from business like.

Then there was the turret.  Who expects to find a turret on a ranch house?  It was amazing.  The whole “ranch house” with its fourteen bedrooms was amazing!  I wouldn’t have minded living there if it was some place other than Texas.  Sorry, not a fan of the south.  But that house . . .

In case you think there was nothing in this book but kinky sex, not true.  There was some story.  The characters backstories were well developed and added nicely to the story.  This book began at the reception celebrating the marriage of Connor and Lara.  I love the family dynamics of the Donovan clan and can’t wait to see who gets the next story.

For those of you following this series, and the one before – the Bonds series – yes Julien Bonds makes a cameo appearance.  I still have my hopes of him finding his “one” and I think I know who it might be.  Time will tell and I will be following along to find out.  Although I am wondering, will it take another series?

So, dear fans of BDSM and Sierra Cartwright, grab this must read book, a tall glass of iced tea or a hot toddy, (Sofia makes both in the book) kick back and enjoy this sizzling book.
