BDSM, Erotic Romance
New York Times bestselling author Marie Force writing as M.S. Force…
He's a sexual dominant. She's sworn off sex. There's no way they can make a relationship work—or can they?
After surviving a traumatic event at age fifteen and the ensuing estrangement from her family, Natalie Bryant has worked for years to reinvent herself into the woman she is today—a happy teacher fresh out of college and enjoying her first winter in New York City with her faithful dog, Fluff, by her side. Natalie isn't expecting her life to change completely during a routine stroll through Greenwich Village on a blustery January day. But when Fluff breaks loose and charges into a park, Natalie gives chase and crashes into her destiny. Only after Fluff bites and draws blood from the man who accidentally knocked Natalie down does she realize Fluff has bitten the biggest movie star in the world.
He has no business being enthralled by the gorgeous, young, innocent teacher…
Natalie captivates Flynn Godfrey from the first moment their eyes meet while she is lying on the ground and he's fighting off her ferocious little beast of a dog. The only thing Flynn knows for certain is if he lets Natalie get away, he'll regret it for the rest of his life. After only a short time in her presence, Flynn is prepared to change who he is to be what she needs. He knows he's in big trouble when she says she won't sleep with him and he doesn't care if it means he gets to keep her in his life. But can he turn his back on the lifestyle that has defined him? Can he deny the desires that drive him to give Natalie the introduction to love and romance she so deserves? And most of all, can he keep his truth hidden from her long enough to have forever with her?
Join Flynn and Natalie as their story unfolds in three full-length books released three weeks in a row: VIRTUOUS, VALOROUS and VICTORIOUS. From New York to Los Angeles, from Hollywood to Las Vegas, Flynn and Natalie's whirlwind love affair has it all—romance, passi

What woman can't name at least one celeb who makes them swoon and drool every time they're in the news? I'd love to know what real life dude Flynn is based on, because WOWZA he's yummy!
NYC teacher Natalie Bryant knows she isn't in Nebraska anymore, not when she literally runs headfirst into the stunningly gorgeous movie star Flynn Godfrey filming in a park. After a whirlwind courtship and despite Natalie's assurances that she will not have sex before marriage, she and Flynn quickly become inseparable. Flynn is crazy about sweet and innocent Natalie, so much so that he's willing to suppress his dominant nature and need for BDSM in his life just to be with her. Natalie's traumatic past keeps her away from men, but Flynn somehow sneaks past her defenses until she's helpless to imagine life without him. Can a Dom and a sexually damaged woman make it work?
VIRTUOUS is the first book in the Quantum Trilogy by the talented Marie Force writing as M.S. Force, showcasing an edgier side of the best selling romance author. I have to admit that I wasn't thrilled about reading this book. I thought to myself, "self, here's another one of THOSE knockoffs of a horribly written and unreasonably popular erotic romance novel. Cue the gazillionaire, enter young, naïve yet beautiful woman."
Well, I had the characters right, but there are a few things that make this book stand out. First, the writing is impeccable, as one would expect from Ms. Force. It's clean, filled with wit and sensuality and the storyline is one that almost every woman can relate to: dreaming of herself on the arm of one of the world's hottest celebrities, being whisked off to LA (in a private jet, natch) for facials and pedicures and dress fittings before walking the red carpet with said celeb.
VIRTUOUS was a surprisingly sweet and very vanilla book. While I have a feeling that the next two books in the trilogy, Valorous and Victorious, will be much darker and edgier, this was a nice easy way to be introduced to the damaged Natalie and the celeb who falls head over arse for her at first sight. They have excellent chemistry, and while I did think the Cinderella storyline was slightly over the top, it was still a well written and interesting beginning to a new series, one I'll be picking up the other books in as soon as possible.
