Ten years ago, Rori Simon left town shy, unattractive and with zero self-esteem. Now she’s back, older, stronger and finally loving herself—and it shows. Hot men are soon knocking at her door, including Jude Callahan, the bad boy who starred in her teenage daydreams…and her adult fantasies.

Jude can’t believe the sexy, confident woman before him is actually Rori! She’s gotten under his skin like no other woman has…and brings out secret desires he can’t resist. He wants to dominate Rori with every fiber of his being. Wants to own her and pleasure her. To cherish her as he makes her his.

Rori discovers she likes being controlled. She also knows Jude is not a one-woman man. Everything changes when she meets Zach Helm. Edgy, sensual Zach knows just what she needs, and before long, she’s in love. Jude watches them together and wonders if he’s lost his chance forever…




This was a very emotional read for me. This was a very heavy relationship story with a lot of interesting dialogue and steamy romance scenes. Although there was a D/s theme with bondage and some minor spanking/flogging, it wasn't described in enough detail to make you squeamish if that subject bothers you. The story takes place over several years which allows for a lot of growth and changes in the three main characters. One aspect of this story that I found unique was that none of the characters sought the D/s lifestyle because of issues in their past. Instead of needing a reason for it, they approached it as something that they simply preferred and enjoyed. I also liked that although the characters were flawed, they never blamed others for any of their issues.
