Godfrey Cross is a big, tattooed Dom with no tolerance for brats.
But when he meets two mouthy vanilla girls, he begins to see their charm.
Gemma and Izzy seem more into each other than into him and he wonders if he's wasting his time. Yet despite the clash between his strict version of BDSM and their rebellious natures, he finds himself growing to love them.
When his need for control tears their relationship apart, they must learn to compromise or they will lose each other. People may not be perfect, but could these two be perfect for him?
Warning: this book contains a saucy tattoo artist with a love for the strap, a Dom who turns bratty girls into sex zombies, and a Big Evil Bed that's used to tie up unsuspecting subs.

Within the first few chapters, I knew that this was a story that went beyond the usual BDSM stories and the sex that most are made of. The focus was on the building of the relationships between the Dom, Cross, and his two brats, Izzy and Gemma. It was the romance and trust between them all, as well as the journey to the love that pulled me into this story. This journey also is about their individual growth.
Cross believes he's a damaged Dom and isn't worthy of love. But watching his friend Jude and his two ladies, Cross starts to wish for things he knows he can't have. Meeting Gemma, then Izzy, the spark of interest is there in both of them. Both of his brats are kink virgins, but training these two brats, he can do and never lose his heart. But from the start, it doesn't go quite the way he thinks as they slowly brat their way into his heart.
Izzy is a bisexual, dealing with the fallout from being caught with another girl when young. Losing her dad early in life has left her feeling at odds with life and alone. The character of Izzy is sometimes the most vulnerable of the trio, with internal insecurities that she tries not to show.
Gemma has her own demons to deal with, stemming from a boyfriend who wanted her to dominate him in the bedroom, which is a disaster when you're not a Dom. The farther involved she gets with both Izzy and Cross, the harder it is for her to work out the balance and understand the line between true submission and losing herself in that submission. And losing herself is her biggest fear.
Watching the individual personalities of all three characters change as they grew and wove together was a beautiful thing to see. Of course there are ups and downs that all new and building relationships have, but these three help each other work their way through the others' hang-ups and foibles, coming out stronger each time.
On the surface, this is a BDSM tale of three people becoming a ménage, but it is so much more. Incredibly well-written, with dimensional characters that grow in depth and emotions before your eyes, this is an amazingly, engaging and beautiful love story.
