Eve's desperate denial only means one thing...she has a lot to learn.

Eve Blake has been working at Altered Ego, a studio specializing in fetish photography, for three months when a custom order comes in for a plus-sized redhead. Ready for an adventure, she volunteers for the job. Chase, her boss, reluctantly accepts. Maybe pretending to be a sexual slave for Chase's camera will get her one step closer to the two men she thinks can satisfy even her darkest needs.

Chase can't believe he's agreed to this deal. The cardinal rule in any business is not to get involved with your employees and that includes your sexy receptionist. He and his partner Murphy learned that lesson the hard way. Now Chase has a hunch the first time they touch their rope to Eve's creamy flesh, there will be no turning back. They'll have to have her.

One shoot leads to another and Eve finds herself at a playground at midnight. When the scene takes a dark turn, Eve sinks deeper into sensation at the hands of two masters who push for her ultimate surrender. Will she reach the limit of how far she can go, or will the ties that bind form bonds of love?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, strong BDSM elements, ménage (m/f/m), brief knife play, mild choking.

This is one dark erotic piece of writing that I devoured entirely too quickly and of which I desperately wanted more.

Eve is ready for an adventure. Her life needs to change. So when an order for a voluptuous redhead comes into the fetish photography studio where she works, she jumps at the chance to model. Her bosses aren't sure it's the right thing for her to do as they both want her, but have been keeping her at arm's length since she's their employee. Eve wants her bosses, Chase and Murphy, as well and if the only way she can get them is on camera, then it's a risk she has to take. However, as Eve falls more into her submission on camera, off camera dark desires and old wounds are revealed, and the three of them push the boundaries of their previous relationship to find what ultimately may be love.

This book may be a quick read, but it is not short on sensual content. The author was able to do what many can't do with an entire novel. The relationship between Eve, Chase, and Murphy was definitely a tumultuous one but very electric. The chemistry was off the charts. They also all brought a bit of baggage to the relationship that I thought made them more believable. I thought the author did an excellent job in the short amount of time that she had, giving the reader insight to the characters' motives. They were all coming from different places and I thought that those places were explained very well.

The idea of having the book set in a fetish photography studio helped to make book quite memorable. The BDSM scenes in the story were very erotic. There is a warning in the book about knife play, but don't let that deter you from it. It's very mild and done in a consensual way. I thought the dialogue was realistic and added to the sensuality of the book. The happily ever after was apropos to the BDSM theme of the book, but I was very sad to see it end.

Overall, a solid read. This book had a great characters, a solid storyline, wonderfully edgy sex scenes, a memorable setting, and chemistry that gets you hot under the collar.
