Excerpt4

Ian glanced around the now empty room before speaking. “I realize I’m in no position to judge relationships in the work place.”

Hell no, considering Ian had pursed his now-wife, Riley, brought her into the business,
and promoted her, Dylan thought.

As for Olivia … “There is no relationship.”

“But you want there to be one. And my sister isn’t cooperating. Am I right?”

When Dylan didn’t reply, Ian continued. “I saw you two in the hallway. At the party.”

Dylan blew out a long breath. “Not that I owe you an explanation but nothing happened.” He ran a hand over his goatee, buying time.

“Bullshit. I saw the kiss.”

Dylan inclined his head. “Fine.”

He knew Ian was overprotective of his sisters. He even understood the man’s reasons. For that reason alone, Dylan wouldn’t lose his temper now.

“Look, you’re my friend. More than that, I respect you as my boss. But whatever is or
isn’t going on with me and Olivia … that’s none of your business.”

Ian eyed him through his infamous narrowed gaze, assessing him, causing Dylan to
straighten his shoulders and meet his stare head on.

Ian cleared his throat. “My sister is tough on the outside but she’s … more fragile
inside,” he said, clearly considering his words carefully.

“Your point?” Dylan asked the other man.

“Don’t play with her head or her heart.”

Dylan inclined his head. Unknowingly, Ian had just reaffirmed that whatever kept
Olivia at arms length, it had nothing to do with business. If anything, she
felt too much or she wouldn’t have run.

“We good?” Ian asked.

“Always.”

“Then good luck in Hawaii,” Ian said, turned and walked out the door, leaving Dylan alone to strategize his next step.

Dylan wasn’t the type to give up on something he wanted. He’d been too soft with Olivia, giving her space, figuring she’d give in to chemistry eventually. Obviously
that wasn’t going to happen. He needed to take control and should have done it
sooner. Where better than the tropical paradise of Hawaii to make his
intentions crystal clear.

Yes they were going to Hawaii on business, but she was interested in enjoying the
island. They were staying in the same hotel and attending the same events. That
added up to opportunity and Dylan wasn’t above taking advantage if it meant
getting what he wanted. And he wanted Olivia.

Reviewed by Shera 5 of 5 Stars!

This was my first Carly Phillips book and I think I’ve been living under a rock because this certainly won’t be my last!!!  This book is sweet, sexy, HAWT with elements of BDSM, but just not submission of not only your body, but also your mind and heart.  All good things wrapped up into a delicious little candy that you refuse to bite because you don’t want it to end!  This is the 4th book in the series, but can be read as a standalone.
Decklan Dare is a sexy Alpha Male and is all things hotness.  He’s a cop with cropped, Jet Black hair with a strong chiseled face that would knock any woman flat on her ass!  He hasn’t had a long-term relationship for fear of losing someone again; he closes himself off from any type of new relationship to where he could potentially lose the person from his life in anyway. He has already lost, was broken and refuses to let it happen again.

Amanda grew up and still has an evil wench of a mother.  This beautiful girl has been reduced to nothing because of her mother leaving Amanda feel not good enough and no confidence.  She scares anyone away that would be interested in her because of her insecurities, seeds implanted by her mother.  Amanda is living a fake life back in Washington, DC protecting a dear friend from his secret getting out but she gets out occasionally and is a member of a BDSM Club, a club where she just happens to meet Decklan.

Both Decklan and Amanda have a lot of healing to do.  They need to learn how to trust and the best way, submit to each other.  I seriously loved how Decklan and Amanda’s relationship evolved in this book.    Can Amanda Submit to Decklan?  Will she finally be free of the fake life she’s living and start to live for herself?   He wants to ease Amanda’s pain and erase the damage her mother has done to her, but by trying to help will he fall?  Can Decklan Dare finally let someone back into his heart and learn to love again?

I seriously devoured this book.  The writing was flawless, storyline was fantastic and I will certainly be going back to read the other books by Carly Phillips! I highly recommend this sexy hot book to everyone.  It’s a story of learning to love and trust and finally letting yourself live again all while still encompassing a classy ever so sexy element of BDSM.
