Title: Only If It Pleases
When Vanessa is gambled away by her Dom, she ends up the slave of the handsome Hart Wolfe for a weekend. Hart has a well-deserved reputation as a strict Master into heavy play. Vanessa isn’t sure if she can live up to Hart’s expectations, but she’s certain that he’s in control and knows the way to pleasure a kinky woman.
Hart isn’t sure he even wants a weekend with Vanessa, though he’s attracted to her. He knows right away she’s not into the kind of pain he’s become so skilled at dishing out, much to the delight of Baltimore’s masochists, but decides to teach her a few things to help her get a better Dom. Little does Hart know Vanessa will rise to any challenge. Her desire to submit can capture even the hardest Master’s heart.

I have been reading this author for several years. She has never let me down, and here again, is another wonderful, character driven story. This story is about Hart Wolfe and Vanessa. Doesn’t that name – Hart Wolfe – just get your imagination flowing? *sigh*
Vanessa is a lovely young woman just learning about who she is and what she wants. Just her luck that the first Dom she experiences has to be . . . um . . . well not someone I want to know. I could never really decide if Walt was a poser, a wannabe, or just not much more experienced than Vanessa. Regardless, he was not the one for Vanessa, especially when he gambles her away. How much respect can he have for her if he does that? That action was the last straw for Vanessa. She knew she wanted a Dom, so why not go along with it. If nothing else, she would get some training and maybe this winning Dom would help her find a Dom for her. I liked how Vanessa, knew her mind – mostly. Sometimes she had to give things some serious thought, but she usually made good chooses. She didn’t wear blinders or compromise her values or self-respect just to get what she wanted. I liked that about her. Learning patience was one of the best lessons she could learn. Good things come to those who wait.
Now Hart Wolfe, on the other hand, is a very goal orientated guy. He had his plans, and a relationship at this time was not part of those plans. Silly man. Best laid plans and all that. But, he likes what he sees in Vanessa. She sure messed with his world though. He likes to give pain, but she doesn’t like pain. How is that going to work? Her house is perfect for his derailed plans for a private BDSM club, or at the very least, play parties. But, does he want her house or her?
The journey this couple takes to finding happiness together is fun and entertaining. They sizzle when within a couple feet of each other. Sparks fly when they touch. You may want a shower when you finish reading this. You will definitely want something cold to drink on hand while you read it. A very enjoyable read.
