She needs a Dom with heart. He sees the lifestyle as heartless.
Sage Lyndsey is in desperate need of an escape from the tragic loss of her mother and a too-public breakup with her Dom. Buying into Citrus Pointe's bakery may be her best decision ever—a place to hide and heal. To do what she loves. But her ideal is broken when her new landlord's dog steals her towel right in front of him. Now the hottest rock bassist ever, Hank Nash, has seen everything she has. Literally.
Even more shocking? That she'd like him to follow up with his very talented hands, bending her to his will.
Hank has enough trouble on his plate—his band is on the rocks and his muse is off the rails. Adding a spunky, sexy roommate is overload. Even worse, the urge to dominate Sage threatens his hard-won control. But he can't give in. He's seen what happens when dominance turns to abuse, and he won't risk her, no matter how much she needs to submit.
Or how much he hungers to keep her.

Sage wanted the love and caring of the man she had submitted to, but he wasn't the right one for her; so she left to start a new life. Hank had dedicated himself to the LAPD following in his family's path, but it wasn't the right fit; so he followed the music in his soul and took to rock and roll. Caring friends brought her to share his home above the bakery she bought and growing love laced with passion and the help and guidance of his bandmate who she knew as Master V, helped them tear down the obstacles of their pasts to give them the most beautiful love story I have read In a long time. Romantic well written story of finding ones place in a D/s relationship.
Sage needs to be dominated and loved. Sage escapes to a small California town to get away from her abusive Dom. She buys the fruit and vegetable market that makes pastries and serves lunch to the tourists and locals where she can be the pastry chef she has trained for. She moves into the apartment above the market while the owner is on tour. Hank Nash has a big surprise when he arrives home late one night from his tour. Hank is the bassist for a rock band. To his surprise he walks in on a towel draped Sage. Hank and Sage both have pasts that they will have to overcome before the flirting they are doing becomes more. Can Sage teach Hank to become a Dom, and overcome his fear of hurting her? Can Hank save Sage from her fears and her past? Ella writes an awesome story about Dom's and sub's and their struggles with this life. Well written and had me so absorbed from the first chapter. I will definitely be reading more from this author. 5stars. Loved this book. Review from Dayreader Kim
Sage has moved to a small town to start over, mourning the loss of her mother as well as forget about the humiliating scene she had with her previous Dom. Hank a bassist in a band but as an ex-cop knows the dangers of a dominant relationship. When Sage and Hank meet sparks fly and Hank’s desire to dominate come out. Can they work together to learn what it truly means to have a D/s type of relationship or will the past destroy any connection they may have. A great read. The story is amazing, so emotional and great characters. Loved it!
