    Forbidden Fires is book #3 in the Bondage & Breakfast series

    Forbidden Fires is book #3 in the Bondage & Breakfast series by Jodie Griffin, it is written as a stand alone story so it can be read as such but I always recommend reading them in order(just my OCD talking)

    In Forbidden Fires we get a love story with BDSM elements and we also get the suspense of a good mystery while we are at it in a moderate sized book. The characters come at the plot in a unique was the heroine is a police officer, not someone you would think of as a submissive and the Hero doesn't realize he has Dom tendencies. The first time Delia and Colin were involved it was hot but they weren't together long enough for Delia to reveal her desire to be a sub now she is drawn back into a case with Colin and it has a BDSM connection.

    I enjoyed the heroine being almost an alpha dom in her job and a natural sub in her relationship with Colin, I loved Colin he was so turned on and so bemused by it. I thought the mystery/suspense part of the book was well done and that the sex scenes were HOT. We don't get deep into the BDSM scene its an aspect of the over all love story and mystery but it isn't dark or intense as both are beginners to the "scene". 

    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

    How could I not love a book from a series called The Bondage &am

    How could I not love a book from a series called The Bondage & Breakfast series? This was a fast little scorcher. The main characters Delia and Colin have a history but haven't seen each other for a year. A mysterious arsonist prompts Colin to enlist Delia to help him solve the case.

    Delia and Colin are both police officers. Over a year ago they had a short but intense relationship that ended abruptly. Delia still thinks about Colin but she knows it can never be. He could never possibly understand and accept her dark desires.

    Colin has never quite gotten over Delia. He knows he should probably move on. When the going gets tough, Delia runs. He has to accept that he will never be able to handle that type of tumultuous relationship.

    The pair are forced to go undercover, in a BDSM retreat. Delia secretly loves the idea of letting her inner submissive loose. The only problem, she is there with Colin. She certainly won't be able to hide her desires from him. Her dedication to her job and the case override her fears of submission as they try to catch their arsonist.

    The buildup in this book was quick but it is the third in the series so not a great deal of back story is necessary. I loved that this was not just about the sex (even thought the sex was seriously hot). It was about a duo trying to solve a crime who happen to be really hot together. And things got hot and heavy <i>quickly</i>
    . I loved the tantalizing scenes where Colin was &quot;learning&quot; how to be a Dom. Yummy! This was super fast and super hot!

    4 Kinky Stars!
