A Story of Sexual Obsession


I should never have agreed to it.

A woman will do a lot to keep her husband happy. But when my husband sells me to the highest bidder—billionaire, former navy SEAL, pride of Boston's business scene—I agree, not to keep him happy, but because it gives me the chance to finally escape. Escape my marriage, escape my debts, escape my life…

Josh Lane demands a steep price: my pride and my morals. But the truth is, I've never felt anything like what I feel for him. He brings color into my gray world. And his insistence that I submit to his commands—his depraved, filthy, amazing commands—only feeds my craving to be taken by him. Again. And again.

I should never have agreed to it, but I'm so glad I did.


I don't need to pay to keep women in my bed. Though my preferences may be unorthodox, I never leave a woman unsatisfied—far from it. Lily Boswell, though… Her innocence draws me, her secrets intrigue me. Having her is worth dealing with her cowardly scum of a husband.

I want to release her passions and heal her wounds.

On my terms.

Because the blindfolds and restraints hide more than she could imagine. I must keep her safe from the people who would destroy me—and the demons that haunt my dreams.

Hey ladies, this is one book boyfriend you'll wanna get your hands on STAT!

Lily Boswell can't believe her loser husband offered her up to billionaire Josh Lane for an influx of money into his failing company. Except that she can, she totally can believe it. It's a good thing then that Josh is WAY easy on the eyes and makes her heart stutter in her chest when he touches her.

Josh doesn't have to pay women to be in his bed, but he'd give his fortune away for one night with Lily. Fortunately that doesn't have to be the case, since her husband virtually gives her away, even if she doesn't really want to be his lover. The two of them have a once in a lifetime chemistry, and he's willing to find out what could be between them. Josh completely corrupts the demure Lily, taking her to dizzying sensual heights and showing her things she never dreamed about. But Josh has a lot of secrets, secrets that Lily has no way of uncovering. And with forces conspiring to break them apart, she may not ever have the chance.

AT THE BRINK is the first novel in the new At The Brink series by Ms. del Mar, and it's AWESOME! Josh and Lily had some seriously insane chemistry, and their sex scenes absolutely made me drool! But beyond the hot hot hot sexy sex, their banter and adoration of each other was epic. This is one book couple that will stay with me for awhile!

Lily was a sweet, lovely woman. With a shithead husband who made her life hell and a negative balance in her banking account, she makes the best of a craptastic situation. Josh sweeps her off her feet and she's helpless to resist his domineering persona. Former Navy SEAL Josh needed control over all aspects of his life, and while Lily was a good bedroom submissive, she wasn't one to be tamed in life. Together the couple formed a brilliant love affair that captivated and enthralled me from the first page. I'm super excited to work my way through her books featuring some phenomenal veterans.

Bottom Line: I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend picking up AT THE BRINK and enjoying Ms. del Mar's fabulous writing style!
