Rating: 4 Stars


A love story complete with flowers, jewelry, romance, and KINK.

“When Lacey loses control of her vehicle and finds herself trapped by ice and snow, she knows there’s only one person to call for help. Unfortunately, Michael may cause more turmoil than relief. She’s lusted for the gorgeous Dom ever since she first laid eyes on him. Trouble is, he doesn’t do vanilla and she’s not a submissive…or is she?

Michael’s hungered for Lacey for months, so when he notices her fleeting glimpses and blush-stained cheeks as he rescues her from an altercation with a guardrail, he decides it’s time to push the sultry beauty’s boundaries…only to discover Lacey’s not as reserved as she thinks.

Physical attraction blossoms into something neither anticipates, taking Michael and Lacey beyond kink, dominance, and submission. Their newfound connection is strong until a flame from Michael’s past returns, shatters the fragile trust he and Lacey have only just developed and threatens to destroy something neither wants to surrender.”

This book was a great, easy read, with a good story and relatable characters. Here’s the thing: I loved Michael. Period. Blue collar, strong, undeniably sexy, and honest to a fault are elements I love in a male protagonist. Oh, and kinky. Do not forget kinky. Sweet and ultimately submissive Lacey complemented him well. I enjoyed their journey, especially Lacey’s transition and introspection. Michael knew right away that forever with Lacey was what he wanted, but Lacey wasn’t so sure.

At it’s heart, this story is a love story, a romance. This couple must learn to navigate the tricky waters of trust and kinky sex, and decide if they really can make it work.

“This goes beyond kink. It’s essential as breathing. Either you have total faith in the person you are with, or you don’t. It’s that simple.”

    I just loved this book, especially Michael. It was refreshing to read about a blue collar Dom. Can’t wait for Candy’s book!

      I’m so excited that Candy is getting her own story! I absolutely loved that he was a blue collar Dom.
