She needed a fresh start...
ICU Nurse Sadie Montgomery moved to New Orleans after her entire world fell apart. The idea was borne of desperation as she sank deeper into a depression so deep and dark, she had stopped feeling. But it wasn't until she crossed paths with Ram that she finally felt a spark of life return. The only problem is, she doesn't want to be dependent upon anyone. The pain of losing it all is still too fresh. Not to mention, in Ram's world, the women submit themselves body and soul.
He wasn't looking for love...

Former Army Ranger, Ramsey O'Malley, is not looking for a long-term commitment from a woman beyond a scene or two at Club Underworld. He doesn't have the time nor the inclination to begin something he cannot finish, not as a single dad with a thriving psychology practice. Except, he is drawn to his newest patient. She's forbidden, like the apple in the garden of Eden, and all he wants to do it take a bite.
But they could not deny their desire...

When Sadie makes a surprise appearance at Club Underworld looking to take a walk on the wild side, Ram knows he cannot let another man have her. He wants to be the one to introduce her to submission. But can he convince her to submit to his brand of lovemaking? And will just one night be enough?

Publisher's Note: This steamy contemporary romance contains elements of power exchange.

LEARNING TO LIVE AGAIN I will admit this story is an emotional roller coaster ride with the various characters. My heart breaks for Sadie and all she has lost, the memories, the regrets, and trying to move forward in life. The story has a great cast of characters, plenty of interaction, and emotions. This will be the story of Sadie Montgomery and Ram O’Malley. “Even though her body was functioning, her heart and soul had died in the car crash.” Sadie Montgomery lost her husband and both parents in a freak accident in Seattle—one where she was the lone survivor. Life held too many memories, so she pulled out a map and found a new place, New Orleans. Most of the time, she can cope as an ICU trauma nurse, but when a family is involved in an automobile accident, and only one survives, it will trigger her own tragedy with flashbacks. That is when the doctor she was working with insists she seeks counseling and recommends Dr. Ramsey “Ram” O’Malley, PsyD. Ram O’Malley understands loss and PTSD since he has lived it himself. He works with veterans who experience it too. While Sadie may not have been in war, what she suffers is similar, and he accepts her as a new patient when his friend and partner, Dr. Lucien “Luc” Beauchamp contacts him about Sadie. The story will bring Sadie and Ram together in a doctor-patient relationship that will take a turn. Ram, along with Luc and several other friends own an exclusive BDSM club called the Underworld. When Ram hands Sadie paperwork and his business card, a card for the Underworld will fall to the floor. While he plays it off—her curiosity is piqued—and the story will take a turn. What a shock to Ram to finally make it to Underworld and in walks Sadie—he needs to get her out of there and needs to find her a different doctor. When she opens up to him about why and what she needs, he agrees to help her explore but can no longer have her as his patient. “I think this is something I need to help me. It’s the first time I’ve felt interest in anything since the accident. Her interest and body piqued, she’d trailed after the rabbit into the hole to discover just how deep it went, and inadvertently discovered a cornucopia of repressed needs bubbling insider her that she yearned to explore. Something insider of her unfurled as she surrendered to Ram’s mastery.” The story will be the experiences that Ram and Sadie explore together as she enters the world of BDSM and allows herself to let go and live again. It allows her to accept and move forward. When Ram agrees to a short timeframe of a D/s relationship with a deadline, she gladly accepts it. It will include BDSM and explicit sex scenes. Sadie is ready to live again, move forward in her life, and she will become involved with Grace, the lone survivor that lost her entire family in an accident. If anyone can relate to loss, it is Sadie. But what happens when she starts plans to foster Grace—and Ram learns about it? Will Sadie and Ram’s time come to an end? Will she be able to move on with another Dom? The story will be the first of many; I am sure we will see the other owners of Underworld meet someone special. The chemistry between Ram and Sadie sizzles, and you can’t help but believe they belong together—but will BDSM and sex be enough? When Sadie is willing to move on in her life, without the support of Ram, will become her knight to slay the dragons? “Give me everything, and I will take you where you need to go. Use your safeword if you need it.”

Lone Survivor is an amazing story that took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from start to finish. The storyline deals with deep subjects such as PTSD and survivor's guilt, while adding in an intense chemistry with BDSM. The characters are developed and each touches the heart as they deal with real life problems. However, when Ram and Sadie connect their passion is captivating. Sadie discovers her sexual desires while learning to surrender and heal from personal demons. At the same time Ram learns to move forward and trust by helping others. For each character they are on a journey of personal growth. I highly recommend you reading this 5 star book to see how love heals. I voluntarily received an arc copy of this book.

This book gave me all the feels, and pretty much got me out of a really bad reading funk. I absolutely loved the story of Sadie and Ramsey and their journey toward their own HEA. There is some heartache involved, but it all works out in the end. Throw in the BDSM aspect and I was madly in love with this story. I'm really excited for this whole series! Please note that I did receive an ARC of this book, and the opinions expressed in this review are my own. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The psychology of surviving is a difficult topic to understand. While the story is more about Sadie working her way through a return to a healthier outlook, Ram, as a divorced veteran, also had some obstacles to work through. The chemistry between Ram & Sadie was intense and I loved their story! Sadie is able to build her confidence and skills not only through Ram's dominance, but also through helping another 'lone survivor' understand she is not alone. I always enjoy when children are a positive influence in the growth of the adults and both Sadie & Ram get that push.

Just from the title and teaser, I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. OMG!!! This is probably one of the most heartbreaking, heartwarming stories I've read, and I've read thousands of books. Having lived over half my life in the south, close to New Orleans, automatically gave me a feeling of affinity with the world Anya Summers created. Then when you get to know Sadie and Ram, well, they both have enough of a flawed personality they become totally relatable. Add in the side characters and the entire cast just brings the story to life. I'm REALLY, REALLY hoping we get to read about the other founders of the BDSM club. Are you reading this Anya?? Congratulations I was given a copy of this book and am proud to give my honest and voluntary five star review.

This is one hot, spicy & emotional romance! I honestly loved this book! Sadie thought she had her PTSD under control but when the patient she was trying to help save ending up dying, she realized that she really didn't. When the doctor on duty tells her she needs to take some time off and see someone before she can come back to work, she's angry... at first but then she sees that he's probably right. Enter in Ram, the psychologist she was referred to and things get very interesting. Ram is a strong man with his own issues and he's also a Dom who sees that maybe Sadie might be submissive. However, they both have to learn to trust each other and let them into their life. This is the first book in the Crescent City Kings deals with the BDSM lifestyle and it's many, many variations so if that's not for you don't read this book. ❣️ I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a great story! Sadie has moved to New Orleans after the tragic death of her parents and husband in a car accident where she was the only survivor. She meets Ram, the psychologist she starts seeing for her PTSD. Of course, they are attracted to each other and when they decide to scene together at a BDSM club, Sadie needs a new psychologist. I love the way they interact and the way that Ram has to work for her love. There is a HEA and I'm looking forward to more books in this series!

Ummm… wow. I can’t think of anything about this book I didn’t love. Retired military hero with a serious alpha complex, broken yet still feisty heroine, and it’s set in beautiful NOLA. I loved watching Sadie and Ram find their way together. I hated when they stumbled but I adored seeing them get back up and fight their way to making something better. I’m now somewhat captivated by the other founding members of Underworld and I can’t wait to read more about them. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book through Booksprout.

‘Lone Survivor’ is an entertaining and quick read, for the characters hooked me from the start and made me care about their cause and issues, making it difficult to put the book down. The book is very well written; the storyline captivating. This is one sexy read with lots of steamy love scenes, BDSM style.

Loved the story. It is well written, entertaining and holds your attention. The interaction between Ram and Sadie is explosive both personally and sexually. The club scenes are graphic and eye opening. There are little stories within the main one that also add to the dynamics of this story. This is a fantastic start to a new series and I can’t wait for the next book to come out. If you enjoy D/s stories, this is one of the best. I would highly recommend it as a great read, you will not be disappointed.

This is another great Anya Summers read, with heat, power exchange, and a great storyline. Sadie is a typical Anya Summers heroine – strong, courageous, and just brattish enough to be fun. She forces Ram to look into himself as well, and their scenes at Club Underworld are enough to set an ereader alight. Both Sadie and Ram are lone survivors; this book shows them how much stronger they are and can be together, and how to share that strength. I look forward to more Club Underworld – Ram’s friends and the other Masters are waiting. I received a free copy of this book. This review was posted voluntarily.
