Diamond Barrett has spent the last four years hiding in plain sight, working as a show girl in Las Vegas, trying to forget the painful memories of her mother’s untimely death. When the details of the gruesome accident finally surface on the morning of her 25th birthday, Diamond’s pain leads her to a series of bad choices that result in the loss of her job.
Paxton Donovan’s very presence exudes dominance and captures the attention of everyone around him. He has spent years creating his brand as a business owner and professional dominant. There is no time for anything that interferes with the order in which he runs his business and life. Structure, order, rules, discipline. Business without pleasure. No distractions.
But nothing could have prepared Pax for Diamond as their two worlds collide and both of their perfectly ordered and quiet lives combust. Will their undeniable attraction and intense passion be worth the risk of pain and heartache as they shatter their safe lives?
I must admit, I was a bit shocked at how much I enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it, I just couldn’t seem to put it down and was upset when I was interrupted while reading it.
It was really cool to follow along with Diamond and Pax as they both braved the new relationship that they were trying to form together. The difference yet similarities between the two were very interesting and added a new fact to the book.
I must admit that I did like how Jamison did the introduction into the BDSM world with Diamond. It wasn’t a “thrown into the deep end” type of introduction, but more of a slow introduction that I liked and made the book more realistic.
The drama that did take part in the book was also well done. It kept me turning the pages and wanting to find out what was going to happen next.
Overall a great start to a series and I can’t wait to read more into it in the future!
