Overview

A routine mission…

Sean Taggart is hunting a deadly terrorist, and his only lead is the lovely Grace Hawthorne. She's the executive assistant for an employment agency Sean suspects is a front for illegal activities. To get the truth, he is going to have to get very close to Grace, a task he is all too eager to undertake when he discovers her deliciously submissive nature.

…turns into a dangerous seduction.

Soon, Grace Hawthorne is living a double life. By day, she is the widowed mother of two college-aged sons. By night, she submits to Sean's every dark desire. She's living out her wildest fantasies of pleasure—intimate acts of trust she's only read about. As passion engulfs her, a murderer strikes, and Grace learns that Sean has a deeply hidden agenda. Will Sean choose his mission and break her heart or be the Master of her dreams?

Includes an excerpt from the upcoming A LITTLE HARMLESS SUBMISSION by Melissa Schroeder.

    BLOWN AWAY!!!

    I finished reading this book several days ago and I keep thinking about it. To me that is a sign of a good book. I've only recently starting reading this particular genre of books and to be honest I know nothing about the BDSM lifestyle. The sex scenes in the book are incredible hot but that was actually only a small reason why I liked the book. The story and character development were amazing! I also love that Grace (main female character) wasn't a 20 something perfect looking female. I can't wait to read more stories about the other characters in this book, especially the Boys (Adam and Jake).

    Must Read! Can't wait for the next one!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters worked well together and you can't help but love Sean and Grace. There was romance, intrigue, and steamy, sexy goodness. The other characters in this book were well planned and leave you waiting for the next book! Don't be scared by the BDSM in this book, it adds to the overall tone of the book without being over-the-top to someone who might be new to this genre. I also love that Sean at 32 preferred a 'woman' instead of a girl and didn't even care that Grace was 40! Looking forward to the rest of this series!

    I loved this book!!

    I was really surprised by how much I loved this book. I can't wait until the next one! I will read more from this author now. I think you should be over 21 to read the scenes are way too steamy for an 18 yrs old!!! (as if)

    Loved it!

    I don't know/understand enough about BDSM to have any kind of strong reaction to all that "call me Master" business but other than that I thoroughly enjoyed Grace and Sean's story. I liked that Grace wasn't a 20-something, but I have to admit that the whole "I'm sooo old at 40, so I don't deserve a life or love" got on my nerves after the umpteenth time it came up. Maybe because I'm not far from 40 myself...life definitely isnt over!! :-) Can't wait for other guys' stories in this series.

    Not what i expected

    I kept expecting this story to pick up but it never did. It did lay the foundation for the series, but it was uneven and i kept wishing the author had written some scenes much differently. Ive read all the books in this series and this one is my least favorite. Grace had NO backbone, which i cant stand. How do u get to be 40 with two college age sons and a previous marriage, and NOT know how to stand your ground and ask for an apology when a man has done you wrong? Grace being used as a cover for an operation is one thing, but the way sean "feeds her to the dogs" when he thinks shes a terrorist and then she rolls over and lets him have sex with her just left me thinking that the author wasnt clear on how she wanted grace to be. Either be independent enough after raising kids alone to not be swayed by a "sexy viking" (every time i read that itmade me gag) after hes done something hurtful, or be a doormat. After that part i pretty much stopped reading it, i skimmed through the rest so i could finish the main plot points since all subsequent stories in this series spring from here (kinda). Skipped all the sex since it was clear grace would cave when he dropped his shorts yada yada yada.

    So so

    Characters aren't very strong, plot a little boring, light bdsm. :( I had higher expectations.

    I would have giveen it a zero but a 1 is the only option. This story involves a very poor dom who breaks every trust. It involves kidnapping and rape.
    Very bad reading

    Absolutely Loved it

    If you loved fifty shades of grey, then this book is a book you want to read. Makes you want to just crawl into this book and be his girl. Once I started it I could not put it down. Good plot too book, a lot of sex , but a good story line also.

    I loved it! I have fallen in love with more fictional characters

    I loved it! I have fallen in love with more fictional characters. Sean and Grace were absolutely amazing!
    Their chemistry was off the charts. Grace's inner struggle of being with a younger man was something I
    think readers can relate to as it's more common for women to be apprehensive about dating someone
    younger compared to men dating someone younger. I was extremely glad that Grace didn't let the age
    difference stop her from opening her heart and accepting what she truly wanted with Sean. I've had this
    book sitting in my kindle for awhile now. I've read reviews on some of Lexi's writing with Shayla, so I
    knew without a doubt I wouldn't be disappointed. What I didn't expect was to become so enthralled by all
    of the characters in this story. Not only did Lexi deliver a great story line with action, suspense, romance,
    and some hot sex, she created characters that I'm excited to continue to read about. I can't wait to read
    more in this series. If you haven't read The Dom Who Loved Me, start today!

    Loved it!!!

    It was a great read! I fell in love with Sean Taggart ( a.k.a little Tag ) from the begining. I loved how sweet he was to Grace and how he had other dreams than just being a mercenary and that he knew Grace was the only one who could lead him there. I had mixed feelings about Grace at first because she had A LOT of insecurities and she was constantly second guessing herself and what she deserved, but through the book she gets over them and start to give herself over to her feelings for Sean! I'm a sucker for drama in a relationship; without it, its just sunshine and rainbows and fake, but the struggle in their relationship feels real! I love that Lexi gives so much emotion to these characters, that everything they feel you feel. Its a beautiful story between a man who knows something is missing in his life, and a woman who simply exsist but longs for something more! There is romance, action, love and affection, turmoil, lust, disobedient subs ;-) and angry sexy Doms! LOVED IT!!!

    I don't even know where to begin except to say I LOVED this book!!!! From page one I was hooked and there was not one single second that I was ever disappointed. I can't wait to read the rest of this series now! If they are as good as this one I will not be disappointed!
