Great character and conflict development between the hero and heroine . Many (but not too many for an ERom) steamy scenes (D/s with bondage in addition to vanilla). The plot wasn't terribly involved, but Laura's secrets kept me going until the end. The writing is smooth and well-paced.

I have enjoyed all of the books I have read my Beth Kery. That being said- this one I have liked the least. I had a difficult time connecting with the characters. I also did not love the story.

Thirteen years ago FBI Special Agent Shane Dominic fell in love with Laura Vasquez, but she married a Chicago cop Huey Mays instead. Their paths have not crossed until now; Shane has busted Huey. Soon after his arrest on international corruption charges Huey is found murdered. Shane realizes Laura may be in danger from the same culprit who murdered Huey to insure silence and that same killer will not chance Laura knows something about her late husband's operations. Shane abducts her in order to keep her safe and to learn what she actually knows so he can go after the lethal big shot. However, as they fall in love, he also knows she is his submissive, but she fears going back into a relationship with a dominant even if she loves him; as her late spouse crossed the line into abuse. The story line starts off rather fast as Randall Moody warns Huey that Shane is coming for him; Huey knows his life is over, but regrets not killing Shane and his wife. The plot slows a bit in the middle as the lead couple turn away from the investigation to forge a BDSM relationship. Still SWEET RESTRAINT is a spanking fun police procedural erotic romantic suspense Harriet Klausner

I did not enjoy this book. I stopped and started, thinking it would get better. I am a fan, and usually love this style, but not this time. The story n characters were hard to follow, but mostly I did not like the male lead. He was inconsistent, unnecessarily violent and self abdorbed. The sex was uncomfortabke to read. She was already traumatized from her life. What he didshould have put her in a padded room.
