You find what you’re looking for... where you least expect it.
That held true for me ER nurse, Liz Johansson; the night a young man named Trevor arrived at the hospital and turned my life upside down. Perhaps it was divine intervention that my care for Trevor led me to his friends…
Sinfully hot, James Bartlett and his equally gorgeous boss, Ian Stone; two men, so tall, dark, and lethal, they conjured fantasies my body ached to fulfill. It was impossible to choose one or the other, and hungering for them equally tore at my moral code. I had to find the will to banish my shame or risk losing them forever.
Powerless over their potent, carnal command—together—they led me down a blissful path of uninhibited passion. Unlocking my forbidden desires, while healing the scars of my past, they opened my soul to something so powerful and alluring I couldn’t turn away. Seduced by their infinite love and dominant touch, they taught me how to surrender my fears…my heart, and learn to live again.
The book starts off with plenty of action and forward motion. In the ER, a young man has been brought in severely beaten. Liz, a nurse, takes the case although it strikes a chord to a man from her past. While working with Trevor, the patient, she meets his partner and many friends including James. James is instantly enamored with Liz and shortly starts to introduce her to his lifestyle.
Liz is a great character. She’s feisty, intelligent, driven, with a side of broken. Her sorrow doesn’t prevent her from being a productive member of society but she has kept herself in a box unable to truly enjoy much since her brother’s passing. I also appreciate the evocation that Liz is a natural submissive even though she’s a strong person.
I love this begins hot and fast and never lets up. A relationship is built with James and Liz before adding Ian. While some may be upset Ian introduced until nearly halfway through, he is always in the background. Plus it feels more organic to solidify the two who met first before throwing in a third. In the last half of the book, we get a better sense of James and Ian as friends and partners. They balance each other out with complimentary traits. While Ian has more experience in BDSM and often presents as top alpha, James brings more geniality when Liz needs it. In the end I could take or leave Ian, but the three of them make for some smoking scenes.
Although a majority of the timeline is compressed into about a week, I value the flow; if anything, it left me wanting more. This book doesn’t slow down from beginning to end. It’s filled with incredible primary and secondary characters. I’ve read Embracing My Submission but haven’t made it back to read books 2-4 in the series yet. Afraid I’d be lost; I was pleased to find it isn’t needed to enjoy this story. I’m sure catching up on those would help with the bigger picture but it didn’t take away from the specifics. Overall this is a burning read you won’t want to put down until it through.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me.
