This is a story about a woman who wants to submit to a man and a Dom who is willing to test her. Abby researched Nathaniel, a known Dom because she wanted to experience her own submissiveness. And Nathaniel had the reputation to be very good at teaching submissives. He gave her his requirements that went as far as an exercise plan and diet guidelines. Abby was thrilled with most of it. The relationship that unfolds is kind of a roller coaster ride between which Nathaniel she gets at which time. Cold and detached or tender and sweet Nathaniel.

I have read other reviews and this is said to be fan-fiction. I really don’t care because I enjoyed the book just like I did with the 50 Shades books. It was a story about two people who just might end up being exactly what the other needs and that’s enough for me. I liked the characters and the sex was HOT! I will definitely read more of this series.

Warning to those that don’t know, this is a prequel to the series. I didn’t have a problem with that though. I found it engaging, well written and enthralling. I can’t wait to read this series!

This story is done in parts but a summary is that these three men joined the military for various reasons and suffered tragic losses, both military and personal. They formed a bond serving together and continued that bond after their tours were over. They realized they all had Dom tendencies and opened a fetish club in Denver. There are more characters to be introduced as the series goes on I think.

I don’t want to give anything away so that’s all I can say. Read this series and become addicted like me. My only thought is that I hope I can handle all the BDSM that’s surely coming my way. Oh, and I wish Marc’s story wasn’t first because I really want to read about Damian and Adam first. I guess I better warn the hubby about the money we will be missing when I buy them.

Thanks to Kate and my friend Mindy for suggesting this series and for warning about what’s to come.

Out of five stars, I would say this is a 4.5 star book. It missed a five star or A+ because of my discomfort with some of the sex scenes. James Cavendish is a billionaire who has a taste for kink. Hardcore BDSM to be exact. He doesn’t date or do relationships. At least, he didn’t until he met Bianca Karlsson. Bianca works as a flight attendant and waits on him in first class. She captures his attention and he propositions her. Bianca is a former victim of violence from her youth but strangely enough, she is drawn to James as a submissive.

This novel is about their relationship evolving in ways they both never saw coming. I liked but disliked both characters for different reasons. I liked James’ possessiveness and tenderness but disliked the fact he likes to hurt women during sex. I liked Bianca’s friendship with Stephan but not her free acceptance of James’ dominance. This story had good flow and I enjoyed the author’s voice.
I am excited to read the next book in the series.
