Lexi Mallory thrives on her independence, but she yearns to relinquish control. It will take a strong man to break down her barriers.
Author Marie Tuhart provides just the right man for the job with Gabriel Huntington, a determined Dom who understands the value of a true submissive. In MELT MY HEART, Gabriel and Lexi demonstrate the value of a true power exchange.
The BDSM elements were well integrated into the storyline. I was especially impressed with the way the author presented the conflict. As an outwardly strong female, Lexi's deeply rooted emotional levels made her feel inadequate. Rather than forcing her to participate in activities, Gabriel responded the way a true Dom would, by taking her back to the basics.
The dynamic between the couple provides an excellent illustration of the importance of trust and control within the BDSM lifestyle. Add in a stray puppy and there's plenty of emotion to go around. I enjoyed the interaction between the couple in and out of the bedroom.
There's a solid amount of spice to round out the story, leaving me satisfied.
