Why can't any of these books have a real ending? All of the books in this series have cliffhanger endings. How hard is it to end a story? We have to waiit how long before the next book to find out what happens next.just end one story and then start the next one.we will by the next book if you end the 1st one!!! I

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I’ve had so many ups and downs with this series that I honestly didn’t know what to expect with this book.  I was a bit apprehensive to start reading “The Bold and the Dominant”.  I was afraid that it would drag for me like “The Young and the Submissive”.  I was also a little leery after learning that there was a cliffhanger.  If you’ve read any of my reviews, you know I hate cliffhangers.  I started this series not expecting any cliffhangers and so far I’ve had three.  –sigh- Okay, enough with the negative.  I absolutely, positively loved “The Bold and the Dominant”.  It grabbed hold of me and didn’t let go until the very end, and then I still wanted more.  I do have to say that none of the cliffhangers in the three books were major to me.  I’ve felt that I could be patient and wait for the next book with each one.  I didn’t feel the overwhelming need to badger the author for the next book.  I loved the entire book.  It was perfect.  I’m not giving any spoilers here.  The storyline was perfect, and every single thing happened just the way I’d want it to.  I can’t wait for the next book.  I have no idea how long we’ll be waiting, I haven’t heard anything about the 4th book.  I’m also looking forward to more of Beck and Seth.  I’d love to have a spinoff with those two Dom’s.  –yummy-     4.5-Bombs Reviewed by Tracy

Book 3 in The Doms of Her Life series brings more strife between the three lovers along with a couple of bitter pills from their past jumping in to try to stifle their future happiness. Exciting and sexy hot! Macen "Hammer" Hammerman and his best friend Liam O'Neill have finally managed to break down the walls their shared sub Raine Kendall has had up around her heart when their happiness is put to the test! Liam's ex-wife shows up causing a ruckus and he has to leave Raine in Hammer's hands while he goes to deal with her. During his absence, he lets his insecurities get the best of him and wonders if Raine even needs him anymore now that she has Hammer, and how he could ever mean as much to her as the man who she has pined after for years does. Will his demons get the best of him and tear down their happily-ever-after before it even gets started? When a past nemesis puts Raine in grave danger, will Liam and Macen be able to protect her? A final big cliffhanger sets us up for the conclusion of the series ... Book 4, COMING SOON!

The Doms Of Her Life book 3 was amazing. The three authors of this book are also amazing. Raine gets herself into so much trouble. It's a good thing Liam and Hammer are there for her. The story was good but the sex was evan better. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens to this threesome.

Absolutely 100% outstanding! This third, full length, book captures the trust that a menage relationships must endure. Raine, Liam and Hammer will need to communicate more than ever. They will need trust and honesty to pull them through the storm that's brewing. Another amazing cliffhanger has me itchy for book 4. A MUST READ!

Macen "Hammer" Hammerman and Liam O'Neill have not given up on the idea of reaching Raine Kendall. They know that she has a lot of hurt and keeps secrets about her past that they're trying to help her get over. Liam's ex-wife Gwenyth shows up at the club with a life or death situation and she needs to see him immediately. Liam is out of town with Raine and Macen, forcing them to cut their trip short. Apparently, Gwenyth and Liam's son is under emotional distress from the absence of his father, at 5 months old, and has a psychotherapist. All I could think was, really? That's dumb! LOL But the more I got to know Gwenyth, the more I understood she was crazy and everything she was doing was a scheme. Liam is forced to deal with his past, while leaving Raine with Hammer and his jealousy gets the better of him. His jealousy leaves him feeling that Raine only needs Hammer and not him. Hammer is the rock of the trio, and he's trying to help Liam and take care of Raine at the same time. They balance each other out and I think that's why they make such a good team. Hammer and Liam are trying to figure out what Gwenyth's scheme is when the baby gets sick and she tells Liam everything, thinking he'd help her get out her mess. Raine's father is not a good man, he abused her as a child. When he comes back because Hammer quit paying him his monthly stipend, he felt he was due his payment. Her father kidnaps her and tells her everything he did to her siblings and mother. Gwenyth worked with Raine's father to manipulate Liam into doing what she wants, paying him. Even after hearing everything that was said between Liam and Mr. Kendall she never believed that Raine would be harmed. She just wanted her way. I was happy to see her going to jail. When I started this four part serial I figured I would be able to read it and still be able to get done what I needed to. I was wrong, once I started the first book I feel like I didn't surface again until the end of this one and that's only because I have to wait for the 4th part. Raine is a strong woman, a fighter, and willing to do whatever it takes to survive. I'm glad that she was able to slay her dragon once and for all and is now starting her own family. The end of this part was surprising, but something that adds another dimension to the characters and the next part. I can't wait to see how they react and how the dynamics change. I also enjoyed watching Seth and Beck, the more I get to know them the more that I hope we are able to see them get their own book. Received ARC in exchange for honest review

The first book went into the love story and the sex this one was just sort of boring.

This One was Ok. This is the third book in the series and I have to say that I enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoyed book 2. The book picks up where book 2 left off with Liam, Hammer, Raine, Beck and Seth at the lodge and Liam having received a call in the middle of the night from his ex-wife and goes from there. There was a lot happening in this book, from Liam's awful ex-wife to Raine's disgusting father to them trying to solidify their relationship, but I have to say that the story did not flow as well in this one as it did in book 2. I found that the main characters made a lot of silly decisions that were unnecessary, especially after two of the main premises of book 2 were communication and honesty. It was as though those lessons were just thrown by the wayside once the situation with Liam's ex-wife arose. I also have to say that I actually really feel for Hammer, who has to deal not only with Raine and her inability to believe that she is loved, but he also has to deal with Liam and his jealousy issues. I feel like Hammer gets the rough end of the stick a lot of the times in dealing with these two and that he is always trying to smooth and soothe the two of them. I feel like Hammer's issues with having lost his pregnant wife are not really dealt with. However, I must say that I do love the way Hammer deals with the two of them, especially with the way he deals with Liam's jealousy issues. Although, book 3 was not what I expected, I cannot wait to read book 4. I truly hope that Liam has dealt with his jealousy issues because the way this one left off makes me nervous about him and those issues. I really hope that I will be getting more on Beck, Seth and nurse Heavenly. Good job, ladies, and I look forward to book 4.
