"It's now or never."
Cali Reynolds knows in her bones she's a submissive. And now that she's free from her passionless marriage, she's going to explore each and every fantasy she's ever had at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town.
Jake McCallister knows what he wants and won't accept anything less from a partner. But when a beautiful divorcée shows up at his club looking for fulfillment after years of denial, he's intrigued—and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she's been missing.
As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now Jake doesn't want anyone but Cali, but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever?

Cali Reynolds is a divorced 40-something who decides that after years of toiling away in a sex-less, loveless marriage, she's ready to break out of her shell by applying for membership to an exclusive club. However, The Den is no ordinary club. It's a BDSM club where Cali hopes all her unfulfilled desires and fantasies can finally come to life. After going through the interview process, she's finally granted access to a world she's only dreamed about.
Jake McAllister owns a third of The Den. For the past five years, he's been content but he's become restless and knows he'll soon be moving on. Just as he begins detaching, he's tasked with doing a second review of Cali's file. On paper everything seemed straight forward, but when Jake meets her face to face, he finds an enticing, seductive woman with many layers.
As he gives Cali her first tour of The Den, he finds her response to the various scenes they encounter alluring and downright hot. It's obvious to him that Ms. Cali Reynolds is a true submissive, which awakens feelings of possessiveness within him. Things progress quickly between the two of them which scares Cali and causes her to retreat. However, Jake can't stay away, and against his better judgment, decides that he'll stop at nothing to claim her as his.
This is a short but steamy, smokin' hot beginning to what seems to be a great series. The characters are likeable and the plot is fast paced and well written. I love the chemistry between Cali and Jake and I'm looking forward to seeing how their relationship progresses. My only complaint is that I wish the series was half the size. With the introduction of Jake's partners, Deklan & Seth, it's obvious their stories will follow. While this is definitely a great thing to look forward to, I think 10 novellas is a huge commitment.
