Staff Sergeant Pierce is everything Ella Gibson doesn’t want in a man, dominant, dangerous, and a member of the Special Forces. But his determination demolishes her resistance.
Ella Gibson is dating with a purpose. She’s got a good job, a car, a townhome. The only thing missing is the perfect man. After having her heart broken, she’s decided that Mr. Perfect will be steady and solid and come home at the end of the day. Bonus points if he’s a sexy Dom. A little kink is the only thing she really misses from her last relationship.
But when her best friend’s older brother, the sexy Staff Sergeant Pierce Holden, interrupts her flirtation with a successful attorney, she’s furious.
Pierce is intent on saving her from a making a mistake. Yet she knows that giving into the temptation of being with him would be an even bigger one.
She’s had a crush on the hero for years. But he’s everything she doesn’t want in a man. Not only is he in the military, he’s a member off an elite Special Forces team. He goes on harrowing missions, and danger is his constant companion.
The more she tries to resist him, the deeper she falls in love. One thing she is sure of, she’s helpless to resist the dominant man’s determination to have her.

In to BDSM? Curious about it? This is probably one of the safest BDSM experience reads I’ve read in a very long time. But if you’re looking for a deep, getting to know the characters and dive in to a story that will go on and on and on and…..yeah, don’t read this one. This book is all about the kink…and there’s plenty of it.
Confession time. I didn’t read the first installment to this series. And from what I’m gathering after reading this book, it’s not exactly necessary (although if the first is like this one, I’m gonna have to back track). This completely read as a stand alone for me, especially considering there was only a section within a chapter that brought in the first books’ characters. So, although I usually recommend reading series in order, I didn’t, so I think you’ll be fine if you don’t.
Pierce is home for a family event. An event that he’s not all too happy having to be at, but what can you do, right? While enjoying a drink at the local bar with his sister, Pierce eyes his sister’s best friend. The one who is all grown up, curves in all the right places and talking to someone she shouldn’t be talking to if she knew what was good for her. But when Pierce tries being the hero, he learns a little more about this bestie…and he’s more than intrigued.
Ella is looking for something. Ever since she got out of a one-sided relationship, she’s been craving some of the “things” that relationship had to offer. Finally looking for someone to settle down with and play with, she starts a conversation with someone she heard was in to the same lifestyle she was. The only problem is that Pierce has not only interrupted her conversation, he’s hijacked it. And now? Now he’s offering to give her exactly what she’s been looking for. Even if it’s only for a night. But will that be enough?
I’m not gonna lie. This book contains some pretty graphic BDSM scenes that are hotter than hot. Like sizzling and on fire. And that’s just in the first few of chapters. Then the heat just gets turned up even more as it continues. But don’t look for anything more than some great scenes. I wasn’t really impressed with the character building, but lets be honest. When it’s that hot, who the hell cares, right? All in all, completely enjoyed this one and will absolutely be looking for the next one.
