BDSM, Erotic Romance
Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she's a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O'Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend's possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he'll end up falling for her himself.
Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam's crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn't ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself—heart, body, and soul—to Liam?

This book is so hot it should come with its own fire extinguisher!
Raine Kendall has loved Macen Hammerman ever since he plucked her off the streets and took her in. He gave her a home, a job, and reason to exist. While she has always looked to him as a mentor and protector for years, she now looks at him through a woman's eyes. She secretly hopes that since she has matured, he will see that she can become the submissive he so desperately needs.
But Macen can't let go of the ghosts that haunt him or the guilt and shame he feels for failing someone he loved. So, instead of making Raine his and giving them both what they so desire, he pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend, Liam O'Neill.
Liam's intent was to take an interest in the raven-haired beauty, hoping to make his friend jealous and push Macen into action. Instead, Liam finds himself bewitched and falling hard for Raine. But while Macen doesn't feel he's good enough for Raine, he also doesn't want to see her with anyone else. Caught between two powerful Dominants, can Raine choose or will she walk away, destroying them both and breaking her heart in the process?
Seriously, the sex scenes make you feel like you've just orbited around the sun. Talk about burning up the pages! The chemistry between Liam, Macen and Raine is so intense and raw. The passion she feels for each man is very different, but it's real and emotional. It grabs you and pulls you in, making you experience every nuance that she feels. All three characters are strong and likable. You want it to work out, but then you think, how can that be possible?
There is also another Dom named Beck who is very intriguing and deserves a bit more exposure. The book leaves us with a major cliffhanger, which is going to drive me mad. But I've decided to hang onto my sanity because I can't wait to see what happens next. Run...don't walk...buy this now!
