A chance meeting. An improbable connection. An exquisite attraction.
Trent Hettinger’s turbulent formative years transformed him into a cynic—and into a man who realized he required something outside himself to control his temper. Something he found as a Dom—at least for a while. But he allowed himself to trust a woman once and was slapped back into reality with a vengeance and now devotes all his energy into building his real estate empire, raising his teenaged daughter…and avoiding anything resembling authentic attachments.
Melody Rodriguez kept her head down for years—working hard, making her own money, trying to get ahead with every deck stacked against her. She’s determined to move beyond the ugliness that haunts her without anyone’s help. When a mutual friend sets her up with Trent, she’s determined to have some fun with him and move on.
A man with nothing left to lose. A woman hiding behind her past. When two lives spent in emotional denial collide, it’s a perfect match—at least on the surface. But neither Trent or Melody are prepared for the full force of their true feelings, once fate intervenes and blows a cold breeze into their white-hot relationship.

Conditioned (Brewing Passion Book 3) by Liz Crowe This is Trent and Melody's story. You need to read book one and two in this series before reading this book to fully understand the story. In book three you get to see how Trent and Melody's relationship started. You get to see Evelyn, Ross, and Austin's relationship from a different side. Trent and Melody are perfect for one another but it was a roller coaster ride. This is true to Liz Crowe's characters. Their characters are messy and not perfect. You get just a glimpse into a BDSM relationship. FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I think this just might be my favorite book from this author and I love all her books!!! Trent and Melody's story draw you in and keep you even after the end of the book. No one writes like this author and every word takes you for the ride of your life. Another five star read!!!
This is Book 3 in the Brewing Passion series. It is the story of Trent Hettinger and Melody Rodriguez. Trent was drawn into the Dom world by someone that he loved and it ended badly. Now he only focuses on work and trying to raise his rebellious daughter. Enter Melody. She is a god hard-working woman with a hidden past. She too has been hurt by love. They are both in turmoil. How will they handle their attraction to each other when neither one is able to trust? Hang on romance readers! It's going to be a bumpy and exciting ride! I absolutely loved this book! It was passionate! It was intense! It was emotional! It was exciting! It's a red-hot sizzling read that is very well-written. The characters are well-developed and very likable. Another great story from this author. Highly recommended!
These characters have a very intense relationship. Both need each other way more than they think that they do. Lots of mistakes on both sides of the line...lots of caution that causes more damage than it does help. Lots of walls to break through. In true Liz fashion, this book is messy. Hot to cold to everything in between. Characters you will want to both smack up side the head and hold to give comfort to. Sassy and naughty. Really emotional. This story happens earlier in the series, during everything that happens in the first book. It was cool to get snippets of that story from a different perspective. But, I was pretty taken by surprise by how quickly it ended. Not that the story was short, I just wasn't expecting it to end where it did. Good story telling, keeps the pages turning.
