On the flap: She didn’t know what she wanted until he made her beg for it...
Morgan O’Malley has seen a lot of kinky things as the hostess of a cable sex talk show. But she’s never met a man like Jack Cole before. A self-proclaimed dominant, he’s as alpha as a male can get–and good for Morgan to have around when an obsessed stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her.
Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what’s more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it–and starts to crave his masterful touch. A willing player in Jack’s games, Morgan knows that his motives aren’t pure, but she has no idea how personal they are…
Morgan O’Malley is a repressed cable sex talk show host with a curiosity for BDSM. She tracks down Jack Cole, a self-proclaimed dominant to answer all her questions and then some for a special on her show. Fortunately for her, Jack also turns out to be a bodyguard since she also has a stalker who will stop at nothing to have her...or more importantly won’t let anyone else have her. While under his protection she also falls under his spell.
I've had this series on my wish list for a long time and with no other follow-up books to read; I bit the bullet and purchased it. I do think the $10 price tag for the e-book is a little steep especially since the subsequent books in the series are just as pricey. The book itself is a fun and intriguing read. While somewhat frustrated with characters' flaws, the irritation shows the story pulls you in. There are quite a few super-hot scenes that keep the pages turning. This one holds enough interest that I’m drawn into the series and craving more.

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. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
