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.
