Overview

They’ve got the sex factor in spades. But can love survive the “ex” factor?

Selene has harbored kinky, submissive fantasies most of her life, but her experience as a domestic-abuse counselor leaves her leery of giving up that much control. Case in point: the ex-fiancé she didn’t love quite enough to test the limits of trust.

Overview

They’ve got the sex factor in spades. But can love survive the “ex” factor?

Selene has harbored kinky, submissive fantasies most of her life, but her experience as a domestic-abuse counselor leaves her leery of giving up that much control. Case in point: the ex-fiancé she didn’t love quite enough to test the limits of trust.

At a BDSM meet-and-greet, she sets out to learn how far is too far. Nick seems like the ideal dom to show her the ins and outs of ropes, floggers, and paddles—with no commitment clause.

After losing a sub he loved too much, Selene’s country girl common sense and smoking sensuality is like a dream that Nick never dared to have—a perfect blend of kink and long-term domestic bliss.

Yet it’s tough to figure out just how far they can push their limits when they’ve both agreed to a no-strings affair. Especially when an ex needs Nick’s muscle and Selene’s counseling skills to get out of a dangerous situation. By then it may be too late for love to survive all the things they’re afraid to say.

Warning: Sexy, kinky, geeky dominant guy. Smart submissive woman. Crazy ex. A little experimentation between girlfriends. And lots and lots of kinky sex.

    Graduate school student Selene Daniels meets BDSM special guest

    Graduate school student Selene Daniels meets BDSM special guest speaker Alison from the Boston Kinksters Union and discovers a peaked curiosity to find out more. So Selene shows up at a meet-and-greet luncheon that will change the course of her life. There she meets not only a newbie sub and an arrogant dom, she also meets sexy confident and respectful dom Nick McCutcheon. Together they learn about each other and explore the BDSM lifestyle and emerge in a healthy kinky relationship.




    To avoid the pitfalls of revealing spoilers, I would like to acknowledge the sensitive and respectful nature the author reveals the safe, sane and consensual nature of BDSM. Already in the opening chapter, Roberts points out two extremes of BDSM ignorance (a conceited dom and adoormat submissive). Not only that, we later meet a self-effacing slave who took the Master-slave relationship too far, thus endangering her health and life and further causing concern for family and friends.
