Review: Crave Me (Luminous #2) by Stacey Lynn and S. Layne

I know I shouldn't covet my sister's ex-boyfriend.

She may have wanted nothing to do with his BDSM lifestyle, but I'm a born submissive. And the only place I want to be is under Simon's command.

But he won't go near me. Not with the memory of her so close.

That leaves me no choice. If he won't touch me when he knows who I am, I'll have to come to him in disguise.

He's worth the risk. I'm meant to be his. Now I just have to prove it to him.

Being a Dominant cost me my first love, but I can't deny who I am. I won't. Control and power are everything, and the way I keep mine is by playing only with experienced subs. No exceptions.

Until I met her.

She wore a mask, but I knew the moment our lips touched she was meant to belong to me. Young, new to the world of BDSM—I knew training her would be a risk.

I didn't know it would destroy me.

Chloe has had a crush on Simon from the first time she first saw him. Unfortunately he went after her sister instead of her. That relationship had run it’s course. Now, she is bound and determined to go after what she wants in her life and that’s Dominate Simon.

Simon is a teacher and coaches the school hockey team. He’s gotten things sorted and is looking for the right woman to fit the mold of what he thinks he needs. He thought that was Chloe’s sister, Cassie, but when he introduced her to his kinkier side, she screamed abuse, and ended everything. Since Cassie, Simon has entertained subs at the club Luminous that he frequents.  They have been ok rendezvous but no one has caught his eye beyond that night. Out of the blue, Chloe approaches Simon asking for submissive training. He thinks she’s pulling a prank and tells her hell no.

Six months later, Chloe is shaken up after a scene at Luminous that a sadistic Dom hurt her, and Simon rescues her from. Before he knows it, he’s offering to train her himself for one month and then help her find a proper Dom. He knows she’s attracted to him, and he knows he’s playing with fire, but he’s not been able to get Chloe out of his head for six months! Maybe this will do the trick! He thinks he’s doing the right thing though-even though this situation has red flags flying all over it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!  Just as good as book one in the Luminous series, Dominate Me, Crave Me is written in the same manner.  The BDSM is of the lighter variety so if that scares you, there is nothing to fear within this book! Simon is just the right mix of sweet and dominating.  Chloe has no problem distinguishing the two and reacts beautifully to Simon’s training. Simon realizes Chloe just wants to feel worshipped so he centers on lots of attention, talking, touching, and of course, feeling. Whew! Chloe was a goner! But Simon was a goner too! Chloe was just the right mix of submissive and sass that Simon didn’t know he needed much less wanted!  He liked her spunk and wanted her to sass him.  I loved how she didn’t realize he was wrapped around her finger-but he was! Simon was surprised by his revelation that Chloe really was his everything woman.

“She’d stolen my heart when I wasn’t looking.”

That sums up the way the book went and I loved it! He just wanted to “be” with her. She was a strong woman with her own business and set of responsibilities, and I liked that Simon wasn’t trying to change her in any way. Chloe was Chloe, and she was vastly different from her sister. Their relationship was evolving into more that just bedroom time-although I think I would’ve liked to witness more of that kind of time. Maybe a few dates, or dinner out, movies, or just watching TV.  I think I would’ve enjoyed an epilogue showing her moved in, and what a typical day for the couple was.

I highly recommend Crave Me! Grab it now!! I hope Stacey gives the Luminous series a story on Dominant Bennett. Oh and while your at it, a prequel featuring Master Dylan and his slave, Gabby too! Thanks!!
