~Blurb~Jude Baxter knows instantly that he wants Kylie in his bed. What he didn't realize is that she's everything he's been looking for. When lust turns into love, Jude puts everything on the line to make Kylie his.
Kylie Weber manipulates situations to get what she needs from men, but Jude knocks her off her game. Jude is unexpected and exciting. Kylie soon finds herself erotically entangled in Jude chains and rope, but worst of all she's gotten her heart entangled in this very dynamic man.
Will the secret she keeps from him cost her everything she never knew she needed?
When I started this book, I will be honest I had a hard time getting that "OTHER" BDSM book out of my mind. The location, the powerful man, his boat, driver, loving family and his knack for wheedling out a punishment were very familiar. BUT that is where the similarities end. This is a really good story.
Jude is man who gets what he wants and he wants Kylie. He saver her from his aggressive driver and instantly is in her good graces. But the warnings he gets from his driver Raul are close to the back of his mind. What is it about this woman that has him so interested? I really loved the fact that Jude was all kink and not tortured, that was refreshing. Hey, just gets off on being a DOM and not a dark, twisted soul....NICE....
Kylie, has been alone most of her life, her only family is her best friend Stacia and a brother that she does not know. Then there is Mason, her "boss" and she hates, loathes and despise him. She is trapped in working for him, walking away is not an option.
It was very interesting to learn about her life and why she stayed in the situation she was in. Kylie is taken by Jude immediately, and I mean that literally ! She fights his need to dominate her, but secretly she loves it and always gives in. Jude is falling, Kylie is falling but will love be enough?
The sex scenes are HOTTTT and SO GOOD! Really well written, although sometime I had to reread a scene one more time to make sure I could visually figure out how it was possible...but hey, that did not bother me AT ALL.
The plot twist for me was very original... I really enjoyed it. There were discoveries that made Kylie extremely happy and some that could ruin what she and Jude have build. She was desperately trying to get out from under Mason and the last thing he asked her to do could ruin all of it.
I really loved that this was a standalone, beginning , middle and END , just the way I like them. We do get the set up for Stacia's story and I have a feeling that its going to be just as good. We meet Jax through Jude, and once he lays eyes on Stacia he wants her, he has to OWN her....
