Receptionist Summer Andrews gets a pleasant surprise when Dom Dalton Metcalf steps in to mentor her and Wes Danbury at Indulgence, the local BDSM club. Her night of erotic play with both men awakens long-buried fantasies, and she's drawn to both sexy Doms.

IT manager Wes had a run-in with Dalton years earlier, but he must put that aside when he finds himself sharing Summer, the object of his unrelenting fantasies, in and out of the dungeon. She wants both him and Dalton to train her as a sub, and she wants them both as lovers.

Dalton is falling in love with Summer, and although he'd rather not share her with anyone, he'd also do anything not to lose her. But before the three can work out their convoluted relationship, Dalton must face the undeniable fact that his father is involved with a fake ghost hunter who is searching for stolen money and jewels hidden in Passion Peak.

What would happen if you just let go? Let go of your fear, your pain, your shame.... Could you?

Summer hasn't had a privileged life, but it's hers. She pays for her grandmother's assisted living home and her own rent. It isn't much but she gets by. When Wes from the IT department asks her out for lunch a few times, it is fun. When he asks her to come play at a BDSM club with him, she is intrigued. She never took Wes for being in the lifestyle but she has always been interested, so she agrees. What she didn't know was that Wes is a Dom-in-training, she would be his first sub, and his trainer is the man she has lusted after since high school. Would these two men be interested in topping her? Could she let them?

The BDSM aspect of this book was really wonderful. I truly enjoyed being able to see inside the sub's head as well as the Doms'. The scenes were dramatic and detailed without being gratuitous. If I was just grading on the erotic content of the story, it would get a 5 plus stars. However, this is a book and therefore is supposed to have a plot in it as well and it was lacking, hence the 4 stars.

Town issues were discussed but we never got the whole story. People were arrested but it wasn't really clear on what charges. I know this is book 3 so maybe I'm just missing some details here, but an external plot seemed to be sprinkled in here and there but wasn't taken anywhere.

If you are looking for a steamy read with a developing romance, wonderful characters, but not much else in the way of plot, then this is the book for you. If you are looking for a side story to go with your erotic reading, then look elsewhere.
