Carma Mandanici is forced to confront her abusive past when an uncle she barely knows leaves her a large amount of money. She seeks comfort in the arms of longtime crush, Mateo Alvarado.
Mateo is more than happy to help Carma start to heal from her past, as well as explore her BDSM fantasies. But Mateo has a tragedy in his own past that he must confront before he can become a Dom to Carma, or allow himself to fall in love with her.
Blaine Peterson and Mateo have been friends since they met as freshmen in college. Blaine left behind a secret that involves his ex-submissive when he moved to Passion Peak to take a lucrative job and start over. He's falling in love with Carma, right along with Mateo. But when his secret catches up with him, he might lose both his friendship with Mateo, and the one woman he can't live without.

A unique storyline, emotional scars that run deep but the love that these three characters have for each other help them heal.
Carma Mandanici is a woman that has lived in fear for the past sixteen years, but she wants to move on and maybe, just maybe, Mateo can help her. But Mateo keeps playing a game with her; every question that she asks, he answers with a question. She is getting tired of trying to figure him out. Maybe he is just not into her, maybe she needs to move on.
Mateo Alvarado is a very wealthy man in Passion Peak. He has his own secret, and due to that secret, he is a loner. He rarely goes into town but he does find time to get a haircut from Carma, but he doesn't understand why he keeps being a jerk to her. Mateo has liked her for years but he doesn't think he has a chance with her. Now he is down to days before his best friend from college comes to Passion Peak from Chicago. He has told Blaine where he can get a haircut and now Mateo needs to draw up the courage to ask her out on a date.
Blaine Peterson is running from something that can possibly land him in jail for a very long time. Now he is in this little town, in Mateo's home, where he finds himself mesmerized by the woman who is walking down the stairs. When he looks at her and saw her disheveled state, he can't help but flirt with her. But would it be at the cost of his friendship with Mateo?
Carma never thought she would be attracted to Mateo's best friend as well, and she wonders what it would be like to be with both of them. There was something about both of their Dom's voice that made her do whatever they said. She truly wanted to please them both. But when they took her to a local BDSM club, she fainted. Perhaps it was time to reveal her secret.
I truly enjoyed Ms Rose's writing; it was very interesting. The history of the town, the history of Carma was a big surprise. It took me a little bit to get attached to these characters but once I got to know them, it wasn't hard to love them.
The pace of the story was perfect but there was so much mystery that it left me with some unanswered questions. There were characters that I want to get to know more because they seemed interesting, especially Nash, the owner of the BDSM club in Passion Peak.
I will have to say that I didn't feel this story to be too hardcore BDSM. There is spanking, flogging, bondage and anal play, but nothing that may make a reader uncomfortable. The sex scenes are erotically hot and sexy. Carma is a natural submissive in the bedroom, and out of it, she is a sassy woman. She will find herself over their knee more often than not.
SEDUCING CARMA is hot, sexy and emotional but there is also laughter. This is a good read and I enjoyed it. I totally recommend this read to any one who loves a good romance.
