Peyton is burned out on love. After a controlling relationship, she is only looking for a little fun on the run. While she has plenty of friends who are men, she isn't attracted to any of them. When she meets Ryker, who instantly sets her body on overdrive, she thinks he just might be the perfect addition to her sexy daydreams—until he seems to be heading in the relationship direction.

She should have known he was too good to be true.

Ryker is ready to settle down, and he has his sights set on Peyton. But how can he win her love when she balks at everything he tries? If it's sex she wants, Ryker's going to make it all about Peyton's pleasure. But will that help him take over her heart as well as her body?

PEYTON'S PLEASURE is a seductive journey into Domination and love, and was a fun and erotic read.

Peyton doesn't do relationships. She just wants a sex buddy. But that's not that easy to find these days with the men she finds either wanting something long-term with her or not having the right kink to satisfy her. When she meets Ryker, she finally feels like she's met the man she's been looking for. He doesn't seem like the type that wants a relationship either...or so she thinks.

Ryker figures he'll be alone. Unable to find a woman who can take his darker needs, he doesn't expect to find her one day at a bar. But now that he's found her, he's going to seduce her into being with him forever.

I thought that this book was HOT. Ryker and Peyton were definitely explosive together. It was apparent from their first encounter together and that heat just kept up right until the end. With tons of sex, there was no mistaking how attracted they were to each other.

The story itself was gripping as well. Peyton has been hurt in the past and has made her turn away from love. Ryker, although he has also been hurt in the past, is looking forward to settling down. Watching him turn her feelings around so that she wants to be with him was funny and quite sneaky. But I loved Ryker's gentle side the most, and it was very apparent that he had deep feelings for Peyton.

The only thing I didn't like about the story was the fact that I was confused on some of the back story. For example, there was no mention of Peyton being involved in BDSM, and there were several instances where it was written that she didn't know what she was looking for in respect to the fact that she liked D/s and bondage. However, in a flogging scene, she brings up the fact that she hoped that Ryker used a single tail on her? What? Where did that come from? It totally ripped me out of the scene because it just didn't fit with the previous 100 pages of written word. Also, there was no talk of safe words or anything in the scenes, and going along with the fact that she was a newbie, it didn't seem responsible on Ryker's part.

Otherwise, I really thought that PEYTON'S PLEASURE was a sexy story that brought the heat. And while I did have my complaints about it, I enjoyed it. This is my first experience with Marla Monroe's work, and I believe that I will give another one of her books a try.
