On the flap: Theo has five days to save Lizzy.
When Lizzy’s Master Mannix goes away on a business trip, he arranges for her to serve another Dom, who turns out to be Theo Valencia.
Theo’s plots to rescue Lizzy from Mannix haven’t worked. For five days, she will stay at Theo’s house, five days of conversations, of glances, of touches, but he thinks it won’t be enough. For two days, Theo will stick to his ethics, but after that, Theo is more than willing to break all his rules, even if he ends up with a broken heart.
Lizzy was devastated when she realized that Mannix considers her to be just another interchangeable sub even though he told her he loved her. Heartbroken and numb, she doesn’t even protest when he gives her away while he goes on a business trip, even when he gives her to Theo, who is reluctant to take her. Running away seems impossible because sports reporters are stalking her dorm, asking when she is going back to Pajari Gym. The Devilhouse is in ruins. Someone attacks Theo’s house, maybe Russian hit men sent by her parents to scare her into going back to New Jersey. Should Lizzy seduce Theo as Mannix instructed her to do and prove her love for her Dom, or should she stay out of Theo’s bed as he commanded, or will she run into the cold night yet again?
This is the continuation of the Billionaires in Disguise series by Blair Babylon. In Episode 2, we see how Lizzy's BDSM relationship with Mannix Bonfils develops. What started out as a caring relationship quickly turns into one where Mannix, becomes very controlling. First, by not allowing her to attend classes; second, by cutting her off from her best friends and main support system. In short who you thought was the hero had now become the villain. At the end of Episode 2, Mannix has left Lizzy at Theo, his half-brother’s house to be her stand-in Dom while he is out of town. He has given strict instructions to Lizzy that during her stay she is to obey Theo. He is her Dom for a week and therefore must do whatever he says.
Episode 3 begins with Theo closing the door as Mannix leaves him with Lizzy. We first met the mysterious Theo Valencia in Falling Hard, episode 1. The chemistry between Theo and Lizzy was hot. Unfortunately, it was short lived when Theo is required by his work to do an extensive background check on Lizzy; finding out one of her biggest secrets. This pushes her into the arms of Mannix. Theo, who is aware of how Mannix treats the women in his relationships, is determined to save Lizzy from a similar fate. He only has five days in which to do it.
Never have I wanted a couple to get together so badly. Theo and Lizzy have been driving me crazy since episode 1. Let me rephrase that Theo has been driving me crazy since episode 1. I needed to know his story. Was he a friend or a foe? Why does he insist on living a conservative lifestyle when it comes to relationships? During this episode, we get glimpses into his past but not exactly the whole story. Despite that, I did fall in love with Theo and ended up having a very strong dislike for Mannis. I am looking forward to the next installment to find out what happens between Lizzy and Theo. I’m hoping for a HEA.
