BDSM, Erotic Romance

It's the flight delay she'll never forget.
Stuck in an airport bar with a choice between two drunk roommates or one dark and delicious stranger, Zoe Chestain decides to live dangerously for once, and succumbs to a night of Shay Bommer's dominant passion. But her cloud of sensual bliss is blown apart the next day, when the Vegas dancer and her friends are taken hostage by the hijackers of their flight home. Zoe's horror deepens when her kidnapper reveals himself. Shay.

It's the mission he'll never give up.
Shay Bommer is one of the Army's best, a Special Forces soldier who followed in the footsteps of his brother knowing infiltration with the enemy would sometimes be necessary. But this operation, deep under cover with one of the CIA's most sought-after criminals, has cost him more than the trust of the most breathtaking submissive he's ever had in his arms. He's given up the camaraderie of his unit, the protection of his country, and even the esteem of his brother in the quest to rescue one priceless treasure. His mother.

Can they turn "never" into forever?
Zoe's danced to some crazy songs in her time, but no wild choreography has prepared her for the adventure of life with Shay—or the return to his bed that means surrendering more than just her body. As they run from the bad guys, the good guys, and everyone in between, she learns about the man behind all his masks, and the Dominant for whom she's always longed.

When Shay honors his word and unlocks her bonds for good, Zoe must face the truth—that her heart will always be Shay's willing captive. But staying with him means dying with him. The heat is on. Can Shay and Zoe's love survive the flames?

For a perfect example of what can happen when attraction hits at the wrong time, look no further than Zoe and Shay.

In HOT FOR HIS HOSTAGE by Angel Payne, Shay is working undercover when he meets Zoe. As a Dom, Shay is eager to explore Zoe's submissive tendencies, but his work comes first. When he realizes Zoe is smack dab in the middle of his covert operation, there is no going back.

This book is part of the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series. If the other parts of the series are this good, and I imagine they are, then Angel Payne will keep you reading for a while.

From the beginning, the tone is set for a reading adventure filled with both humor and suspense. The dialogue is snappy and keeps the storyline moving at a rapid pace.

The author uses Zoe's experience in a former Dom/sub relationship as an example of the wrong way to practice the BDSM lifestyle. Under Shay's expert tutelage, the reader is provided an accurate look into what being a submissive really means.

The heat factor is sizzling with plenty of flying sparks. It meshes well with a storyline filled with adventure.

One night stands are supposed to be a lusty hot night of burning up the sheets. When morning comes, the parties separate and only remember the passion, nothing else. For Zoe Chestain, the mother hen of the Vegas dancers, experiencing a one night stand is not something she does. So when she does fall into bed with the sexy stranger Shay Bommer at the airport bar, it is a night to remember.

The sex in this story is good, but the BDSM is a bit strange. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think it's because the BDSM is romanticized, which is why it feels a little off for me. This works just fine in a kinky erotica romance. The scenes are not what I'd consider a guide for newbies to try out. They would be disappointed. Since this isn't a BDSM 101, I don't expect the author to be exactly on point.

The characters in this story are a hoot. Zoe's friends, specifically her bestie the gay model, are unreal. What is also unreal is how this series suddenly falls into a X-files type plot. As a standalone story, this story works. It falls into the para-human category. It's an over the top secret agent suspense with a back history of mother stolen. The missing mother plot reminds me of the American TV series Chuck. This series does have a similar wacky tone to it. HOT FOR HIS HOSTAGE is the one which seems to have jumped the shark, almost literally.

Ms. Payne may have packed too much into this story. There are many different plots going on at the same time as she forcefully ties it all together. This makes the story come across a bit clunky and slapstick comedy. The conflicts in this story are fine even if they do feel a bit contrived. Ms. Payne does a good job generating the obstacles for our hero to hurdle over. The way every issue is resolved may be a bit eye rolling. Perhaps it is a tongue-in-cheek poking fun of secret agent films.

Overall, this brings all the threads mostly to a close through friends in high places. There is a happily ever after in a whirlwind romance where the misjudged hero is redeemed. Recommended for romantic suspense lovers who are fans of Fifty Shades of Gray.
