Controlling Her Pleasure by Lili Valente is the first book in her debut series Under His Command. This is a second chance romance between a famous and talented tattoo artist (Blake Roberts) who just happens to be a hot as hell alpha dominant male of the kinkiest variety (YUMM!) and and the now married lingerie model (Erin Perry) who broke his heart eight years ago! Before Erin left him without warning, Blake tattooed her with an angel. An exact match to his angel tattoo and vowed that they were going to be forever joined. SO when she disappears from his life the next day, his eighteenth birthday, he is at a loss as to why. In the eight years that pass she has made a name for herself modeling lingerie and cashing in on the matching tattoo and he has a reality show based on his tattoo success. Blake just can't get past the thought that they're still connected and he's bitter enough now he wants that connection broken. Blake has a plan - a crazy plan of the stalker/kidnapping variety - but it's a plan. What happens when you kidnap the woman you still crave in order to permanently alter her tattoo that connects her soul to yours? Well, I'm not going to tell you - you'll have to read it for yourself but it's good and the sex is off-the-charts hot. For a debut novel AND a serial to boot, the pacing is spot on and the story flows fantastically. Now on to book 2... *** Commanding Her Trust by Lili Valente is the second book in her debut series Under His Command. **WARNING** This review may contain spoilers for previous books in the series! You have been warned! So we pick up where the cliffhanger from the last book left off... Erin and Blake had just shared a very passionate Dom/Sub moment in the SUV on the way to the cabin in the mountains and something Blake did irked Erin beyond belief so she tries to get away, half-naked in the freezing cold mountains. Not so smart but she is so mad at him. He is just blown away by how deeply they are connected and how after eight years apart they both have entered the D/s world and fit so well together. He has given her till Sunday to decide on the tattoo alteration - he is still bound and determined to make changes to hers and sever that ethereal connection he feels with her. As the hours roll by they begin to bond again and their feelings awaken from where they've been buried over the years. Some truths come out and things start to feel good between them until an overheard conversation causes the betrayal to flare up again. Dun-dun-dun!!!! The story continues in book three, Claiming Her Heart. *** Claiming Her Heart by Lili Valente is the third and final book in her debut series Under His Command. **WARNING** This review may contain spoilers for previous books in the series! You have been warned! So we pick up where the cliffhanger from the last book left off... Blake has had enough - he wants that tattoo changed and he'll do with or without Erin's consent. Man what an opener to this conclusion to the series. His dominance is turning her on but also ticking her off. She will never submit to him again. When he has her tied down and the tattoo needle ready to go things change and drastically... This series was a fantastic ride - the horrible past that was Erin's marriage is a nightmare that no one deserves. Blake's alpha control AND protectiveness is endearing - even when he maddeningly takes it too far. Once again - this whole serial has been well-paced

Enjoyed this set of books. Liked the main characters Erin and Blake and the fight to get her daughter back.

I wished the ending was in more detail... like an epilogue maybe? I loved it, but feel like the ending was a little rushed... other than that I did enjoy the series very much.

Book1 Wow… super freaking H-O-T! I cannot wait to see how this story continues. Blake is trying to move forward with his life, but there is one thing holding him back. He is forever tied to a girl from his past through the identical tattoos they share, an angel. Erin “Angel” a former model made a name for herself with this tattoo. Blake last saw her when she was 16 when she vanished from his life, and until they are no longer connected by this tat, he will not be able to go forward. He sets his sights to get this tat modified and in doing so finds they share similar dominant/submissive lifestyle tastes…. This was a very HOT quick introduction into Lili Valente! Book2 In Commanding Her Trust, Blake and Erin pick up where they left off in Controlling Her Pleasure with Erin running half naked into the road to get away from Blake. Erin subsequently decides that she can use her submissive power to try to get Blake to change his mind about altering her tat, and Blake is doing what he can to keep it only D/s and not let emotions come into to play. Neither other these two have any idea just what they are getting themselves into and they seem to forget their plans. Blake and Erin share some extremely HOT scenes over the night… However, in a D/s relationship trust and communication is key, and just when it seems like these two are making their way back to what they once had all those years ago, someone’s trust is broken, will they come back to each other…

Love this Triology Controlling her Pleasure This is HOT. from the very start, the prologue has you hooked. Lili did a great job of bringing a dominate to life and taking control of his sub. This teaser story promises more great things to come with Erin and Blake. Blake always took care of Erin when they were kids, then she left. Now he wants “Angel” to have her matching tattoo altered so he can forget her for good. In the process of kidnapping her, he learns just how much they have in common and how much they have grown as adults. With a cliff hanger ending, we are left ready to read more about what is going to happen in this new Dom/Sub relationship! Commanding her Trust Another holding on to the seat of your pants addition to a hot series. Ms. Valente had done an excellent job of writing a book I could not put down. We start right where we left off, Blake catching Erin before she gets away. Off to the cabin to change that tattoo or not? Love is rekindled until a big secret comes out. Will they resolve it? Will they part? I can't wait for the conclusion! Claiming Her Heart how to write this review with out spoiling the end or the end of the other books, I will try my best but apologize if I can't . Love all three books! Blake is such a strong Dom that remains that way through the 3 stories. I love that, I get tired of books that turn the Dom some what candy a#$ towards the end. Erin is a natural submissive with loads of baggage, she needs a strong Dom to help her straighten things out. the series is full of power plays, secrets and passion. lots of hot steamy BDSM passion a great read and great introduction to a new author. Awaiting more from Lili!

Controlling Her Pleasure Controlling Her Pleasure is the prequel novella from author Lili Valente. Controlling Her Pleasure is about Blake, a hot, sexy, successful tattoo artist who has set out to find the ONE woman who broke his heart years ago, ERIN. Erin, who made him a promise to never leave him but did. Not only did she leave him with a shattered heart, but the knowledge that they are still connected by the rare tattoo that they only share. Erin, has become a successful lingerie model and well known in the industry because of this tattoo. Blake is determined to find her and break that connection by changing her tattoo, with or without her consent. What neither of them expected when they finally connected again was an attraction like no other. Lust, dominance, submission, trust, fear, control. Who will come out the winner in the end? Commanding Her Trust We were left wondering at the end of Controlling Her Pleasure, "Will Erin get away?" No way, if Blake has a say. In Commanding Her Trust, the title says it all. Throughout the book, Blake is trying his hardest to get Erin to trust him. He is still determined to alter her tattoo in order to help sever the tie he has with her, but the more time they spend together, the more Blake starts to fall for Erin again. Erin is determined to get Blake to fall for her again, getting him to let down his guard so she can get away. What she doesn't expect is old feelings resurfacing and allowing herself to consider a future with Blake again. Rekindling their love for one another definitely was not what either them expected the weekend in Blake's cabin would bring, but neither could deny what they were feeling. Erin couldn't believe that the boy she loved so long ago was now the man of her dreams, a hot, domineering sex god she always wanted. Blake couldn't believe his mouthy, rebelling, first and only love enjoyed being a submissive. Erin however has a secret she is afraid will destroy what she and Blake have found again. Is there enough trust among them for secrets to be shared? Will Erin and Blake have their second chance at love? This novella was filled with raw emotions, lust, dominance, surrender and learning to trust. Claiming Her Heart Claiming Her Heart is the final book in the Under His Command trilogy. At the end of Commanding Her Trust, we were left wondering what was going to happen between Blake and Erin? Blake was angry for allowing himself to fall once again for Erin, and Erin was pissed off that she allowed herself to think that Blake was her future. Upon returning to Blake's cabin, after taking her again against her will, emotions and truths are finally exposed. Erin reveals her troubled marriage and her fears for the safety of her daughter. It is then that Blake realizes that he needs to and will help Erin get her daughter back. Their love and bond has and still is very strong. Together they come up with a plan to get Erin's daughter back. Blake has time to reflect and comes to the conclusion that he is not any better than Erin's ex and that he and Erin do not have a future together. Will they get Erin's daughter back? Can Blake put his doubts about himself aside and be with Erin? This book was an emotional roller coaster. I loved it from the minute I read the first word to the very last one. Lili Valente did a phenomenal job. I look forward to reading many more of her books.

I have found a new author to follow! Controlling Her Pleasure (Under His Command #1) This is the first in a three-part serial and packs a big punch! Blake is young, handsome and a famously successful tattoo artist. While everything couldn’t be better career-wise there is one thing, one person, he is letting affect any hope of happiness in his personal life. Erin lived in the same foster home during their teenage years and friendship evolved over time to, what he thought, would be a life-long love. She left him and he never got over her. The knowledge that they share the same tattoo haunts him. Seeking her out, he knows what he has to do take back his future. Erin is doing everything she can to ensure her abusive husband remains in her past. Having Blake turn up after all this time is a big surprise and finding out what he wants from her is not welcome at all. The chemistry is hot – I mean, HOT – and the dynamic between them comes clear in a car ride never to be forgotten! I love Erin and Blake already. The cover is tantalizing and so is the story – I can’t wait to find out what happens next! +++++ Commanding Her Trust (Under His Command #2) I didn’t think so but I was wrong. Blake and Erin’s story continues in book two of this three-part serial and it is scorching! The attraction, the love, between the two has not diminished over the years of separation but that time did not stand still for either of them. They both went their very different paths and, given their history, trust is not instantly given. Erin is reluctant to share everything and give in whole-heartedly to Blake though she knows, she feels, that he is everything she could want or need. He gets her – her need to be dominated in a safe, loving way. Blake is also struggling with the feelings and emotions that Erin can so easily stir in him. He tries to be practical which simply leads to more misunderstanding and distrust. Secrets are revealed and the drama is heightened as Blake and Erin continue to find out what love really means for both of them. A doozy of a cliffhanger has me waiting not so patiently for the final book in this series! +++++ Claiming Her Heart (Under His Command #3) This is the final installment in the three-part serial and it just ticked every box for me! After another cliffhanger ending that had me on the edge of my seat the finale was everything I’d hoped it would be. Blake and Erin have been working their way through their feelings of mistrust and uncertainty even as they realize that the sexual dynamic between them is as explosive as ever. The sex scenes were intense but the love and caring the two have for each other made those encounters so much more. With a dom/sub dynamic the trust level must be high and in those moments you could feel what they truly meant to each other. Blake was determined to help Erin resolve the problems with her soon-to-be ex husband despite the fact that he didn’t see a permanent place for him in her future. The struggles continued, the drama was amped up but everything came together in an HEA that just made sigh happily. And of course now I want more because I do not want to leave these characters! I hope the author has more in store – is there a story for Rafe, perhaps? I really hope so as I’m looking forward to a lot more from this author who is now on my “must have” list! Thank you to the author who provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This trilogy by author Lili Valente is hot and then some. Full of steam and sexiness, the love story between Blake and Erin is also swoon-worthy. A definite must-read. Controlling Her Pleasure (Book 1): You'll need an extra set of panties and a fan as you read Controlling Her Pleasure, the first book in the Under His Command series by Lili Valente, a new voice in erotic romance. This book is a novella, but, believe me, it is NOT short on the sizzle. The spark between tattoo artist and Dom Blake Roberts and Erin 'Angel' Simmons practically leaps off the page. When these two are together, whether as teens exploring their first love, or, later, as two halves of a very sexy whole, the heat is absolutely palpable. Controlling Her Pleasure is a great introduction to this new series, and had me from the first page. Blake is full of smolder, all man, and not afraid to show it. And Erin, for all of her sass and bravado, is more than happy to find herself under his spell. Their chemistry had me speeding through this read, and I cannot wait for the next book to see what comes next in their adventure. I've happily added Lili to my list of hot authors, and give this book 5+ steamy sexy stars. Commanding Her Trust (Book 2): Holy hot cliffhanger, book lovers! After reading Controlling Her Pleasure by Lili Valente, I could not WAIT to get my hands on Commanding Her Trust, the second book in Lili's Under His Command series. Let me tell you, this book did not disappoint. Talk about off-the-charts hot, this book absolutely scorches. Every single scene is alive with the passion that Blake and Erin have for each other. Blake and Erin have moved forward in this book. Although their desire for each other is always simmering just below each interaction, each of them knows that their relationship cannot move forward without inspiring trust in the other. If they are to get past the events that have brought them to Blake's remote cabin, they have to start being honest with each other. But when Blake takes his role as Dom to a level that has Erin retreating, it's going to take a lot more than passion and the love that hasn't gotten any less powerful to make a go of it. I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see what Lili has in store for Blake and Erin. Claiming Her Heart (Book 3) can't get here quickly enough, but, in the meantime, another 5+ smoldery stars for Commanding Her Trust. Claiming Her Heart (Book 3): And, 5+ scorching hot stars for the finish! Claiming Her Heart is the final book in Lili's Under His Command trilogy, and it is great. The emotion that has been building since Blake and Erin reconnected in the first book has gotten more intense, and is at a peak here. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this read. This whole series is a roller coaster of emotion and pure raw hotness. Blake and Erin are completely in tune with each other; their time apart has done nothing to lessen their feelings for each other, and their new-found roles in the bedroom are the perfect fit. Lili does a fabulous job of showing the human side of her characters, and drew me into the story so that I felt totally invested in the outcome. I flew through this book (and the others), wishing that I could savor each page to make it last longer, but unable to slow down because I was dying to see what happened next. Lili is a strong new voice in the erotic literature genre, and I can't wait to read more from her in the very near future.

This is the first book in the series, Under his Command, for Lili Valente and I'm hooked. I love novellas and this was the perfect length to get you hooked! Blake is looking for his first love, the girl that broke his heart. He needs to change her ink so thoughts of her stop controlling his mind and soul. Erin has made a life for herself that revolves around her tattoo. When Blake show up and surprises her, she can't help but say yes to him. She's afraid she will always say yes. As soon as she makes up her mind to leave with Blake, the game is on and he is in control of her thoughts, her body and her pleasure. Will Blake be able to do what needs to be done to finally be rid of her or will he get hooked on the girl who owns his heart? I love cliffhangers and this one is epic! Lili has a unique way of writing with passion, lust, emotion and love. I'm addicted to this series! Commanding Her Trust starts off where Controlling Her Pleasure left off…Erin trying to run away from Blake in the middle of the woods. Blake has to keep reminding himself why he has brought Erin here. But, Erin has a plan as well. She wants to keep her tattoo, it's her money maker. With love bubbling under the surface, they both assume their roles as Dom and Sub to cover up their feelings. Blake wants Erin to trust him, but can he trust her? Erin is keeping a secret and he wants to know what it is! This novella is HOT, HOT, HOT! I can't wait to see what happens next! Claiming her Heart is the conclusion to the Under His Command Trilogy, and it was worth the wait! This is the hottest and the most emotional of the series. Blake proved to Erin that he can dominate and pleasure her. He finally proved that she can trust him, but now Erin needs him more than ever. Blake vows to protect Erin and her secrets but he believes that he's not worthy of her. This is the ultimate second chance love story with a side of kink and suspense. I can't wait for more from Lili Valente!
