Innocence Defied, By Lainey Reese

He denies himself nothing…except the woman who means everything.
New York, Book 3
When business brings him to New York City indefinitely, Gage Hollister is sure that somewhere in this massive city, there must be a woman whose need to be dominated matches his thirst to dominate.
But as his search through the local BDSM clubs drags on, he begins to despair such a woman exists. When he’s asked to chaperone his best friend’s younger sister, who’s on her first solo trip as an adult, he welcomes the distraction.
Zoe Marshall has been in love with Gage forever, and has saved herself for him alone. Now, after careful planning and a bit of luck, she finally has the chance to show him she’s all grown up and ready to be his.
Gage believes himself too old and jaded for an innocent like Zoe, but she is relentless in her innocent seduction, and soon his resistance crumbles. But as their love blooms, reality tackles their dreams. And in the aftermath, the choices they face will strain the bonds of friendship and family. Perhaps beyond repair.
Warning: This book contains graphic language, BDSM elements, M/F/M ménage, a Southern Dom who’s a gentleman; and the woman who brings out his inner scoundrel.

Crystal’s Review:
                There are few authors that I will pre-order their books and thankfully for me Lainey Reese is one of those authors!  After reading the first two books in the series, A Table For Three and Damaged Goods, I couldn’t believe my luck (Because I do believe that Lainey wrote these books for me, just ask me and I’ll tell you!) when I found out that this book was going to be released.  As soon as it was available I ordered my copy.
                While I did enjoy the story itself, it felt like something was lacking.  Maybe it’s because I had this great image of Gage in my mind and he ended up letting me down a bit in this book.  When it came to Zoe’s character, Gage didn’t seem to act like himself at all.  Now don’t get me wrong I really do believe that if a person meets that special someone they will change, but he changed too much for my liking.
                Zoe seemed to come off as a little brat in my opinion.  She kept going after Gage even after he told her that he couldn’t do anything with her because of her brother.  But she just kept pushing and pushing until he finally relented.  Although it worked out for her in the end, I couldn’t help but feeling sorry for him during this book.
                The ending of the book seemed a bit rushed as well.  I was left wanting more from the characters when the story reached the end.  It felt like there was a lot left up in the air about Zoe and Gage’s relationship, what sort of relationship they ended up having.  But overall I did still enjoy this book and I really liked how Lainey brought the prior characters back in this story.  So we were able to catch up with them and what has been going on in their lives.
               All in all,  I would give this book a 4 paws and I will continue to recommend this series to my friends!

Dominance. Submission. Murder. And that’s just before lunch. 

New York, Book 2

Homicide detective Brice Marshall’s current case has him stymied and frustrated. A serial killer is slaughtering young women. After a long, fruitless day poring over the most gruesome evidence he’s ever seen, he needs a break.
Stepping into his cousin’s BDSM club is a reminder that there is another part of himself. A part that has been left empty in a life ruled by work. The fact is, he’s a Dom in search of a sub. When he bumps into Terryn, a slender redhead who’s new to the scene, her wide-eyed eagerness even in the face of her nerves attracts him like gravity.

Terryn is the sub of his dreams, with the power to ease his soul. Without warning the murder case reaches ugly tentacles into the most private part of his world—the woman he wants to claim as his own. The woman whose  stubborn search for the delicate balance between sub life and independence could put her directly in the path of the killer.

Warning: This book contains BDSM play, M/F/M ménage, graphic language and a drool-worthy Dom on the hunt for a sub and a killer.
