Exchange Of Power
Can an exchange of power lead to a happily ever after? Burned in the past by men who should have loved her, Lynette Winters is starting to give up on her happily ever after. She made a standing date with herself long ago. If by her thirty-fifth birthday she hasn't found the right man—one who will treat her as an equal and not the hired help—then she'll find a bar somewhere, toast the farewell of her girlish dreams, and fully embrace her life of solitude. After all, she has a great career, friends she enjoys, and the BDSM lifestyle, which keeps her firmly in control of the subs at the Vault. With her whip in one hand and her self-control in the other, she gets all the fulfillment a Domme needs. Even if she can't reach orgasm herself. Deacon Trisk and Blake Armstrong both noticed Lynette the first day she walked into the Vault. Working security for the club, they watch as she keeps others at arm's reach—including her subs—and they suspect this beautiful, little blonde Domme comes with a complicated past. Although Deacon and Blake aren't submissives, both men are ready to fall to their knees for a little attention from Mistress Lynette. And better yet, maybe they can convince her to let them take the lead. But when her past comes back to haunt her, Lynette refuses to give up her newfound control. Blake and Deacon will do anything to keep her safe. But when pleasure turns to danger, perhaps it's just too late for an exchange of power—even one that could give them more than they had ever dreamed...

ghs8956 4.0 out of 5 stars A sexy read that will satisfy your book needs. Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2014 MY REVIEW This is a short read but that doesn't hurt the story at all. I really enjoyed this fast paced and entertaining story. Evan has lost everything. His father is in prison, his mother is in treatment. He has no money and has to work a menial job in order to pay for his mom's care. He applies to be the personal assistant to businessman, Brian Donoghue , by sending his resume and picture. Everything changes after Brian notices the younger man's picture. Brian wants Evan to work during the day as his personal assistant but at night, yeah, that's a whole different story. Evan will be Brian's submissive during the evening hours. Evan steps into a whole new sexy and kinky world. There is an instant electricity between the pair and one night of passion leads to a very unconventional relationship between the two. There was a lot to like about this story. I adored Evan, who had a boyishness and innocence about him. Anytime that he was near Brian the sexual chemistry level went up about 3,000 percent. The author excels at writing fun, sexy and at times emotional dialogue. Sometimes, I just want a story that I don't have to invest a lot of time on but still satisfies my need for a sexy read. This book does that for me. 4 out 4 stars
