BDSM, Contemporary Romance
Juliana O'Neil's promising future was burned away in the heat of battle. She had been an officer with a bright future in the military, but now she is struggling to survive. Her husband gone and her career in shambles, she finds a job at Top as a hostess and tries to put together the pieces of her life. The last thing she needs is any kind of male attention, but she can't help but be amused at her neighbor and coworker's lothario antics. Not that she would have anything to do with him, at least not for more than one night.
Javier Leones doesn't understand monogamy. No woman could ever be enough for his endless libido, but he has to admit Juliana has his attention. For reasons he doesn't fully understand, he can't seem to get the gorgeous redhead with the sad eyes out of his head. After one scorching night together, he realizes he'll never be able to get her out of his system. But with his reputation, he fears she'll never see him as more than a one-night stand.
When their passions collide, these new lovers will be forced to confront Juliana's past and come to terms with Javier's present. Will they find their way or will this reservation be canceled at the last minute?

4 chopped and sautéed stars for AT YOUR SERVICE!
Chef Javier Leones' life changed the instant his former sister-in-law dropped his wheelchair bound, double amputee brother off at his house, drunk and pissed at the world. His neighbor and coworker Juliana O'Neil, also a vet and amputee, comes to his rescue, helping him understand what his brother needs. In return, former manwhore Javier teaches Jules the joy to be found in submission. Javier is convinced she's the woman for him, and has a plan to help her realize her dream of being a chef, but he totally underestimates Jules' stubborn streak and ability to dig in and stay in her safe zone. Can the two of them find their way to one another before their opportunity has passed?
AT YOUR SERVICE combines some of my favorite things: cooking, sex and Ms. Blake's Masters and Mercenaries characters. I'm obsessed with kitchen romances, something about them makes me all warm and fuzzy. Jules was a complex character, part of me loved her fierce, proud spirit and the other part of me was frustrated by her lack of willingness to believe Javier and help him help her like she helped his brother. Javier, for all his fallacies, was a seriously yummy character. I loved that he tried so hard, sometimes stumbling but always with heart, to get Jules back in the kitchen and out of her safe zone. The Topped series, a spinoff of my beloved Masters and Mercenaries series, is a lot of fun and I highly recommend.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; mild BDSM/kink (D/s, spanking, toys); no sexual assault; mild violence, no murder.
