A kinky comment that lands on unexpectedly understanding ears leads Natalie to the surprising realization that her best friend's brother's best friend is into BDSM. Which means Noah is not the guy for her. She tried that lifestyle while in college and it didn't end well.
Noah eases the story of Natalie's past from her, and all his Domly instincts flare to life. He wants to help her figure out if she's right to close the door on her submissive needs, or embrace them and finally find the happiness she deserves. His plan to mentor her so she can decide would be going just fine if she weren't so. Damn. Tempting.
