In a dazzling novel of passion and power from the bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series, a commanding man gives up his most prized possession to win back the one that got away.
Darius Bennett can’t live without supreme control. A self-made billionaire, he’s rich enough to get anything—and any woman—he wants, yet he’s still haunted by a broken relationship. Five years ago, Darius let Taylor Erikson go because he knew he could never give her what she truly wanted: his heart. But the moment Taylor walks back into his life, bruised and beaten, Darius blames himself. To make good on his betrayal, he vows to help her heal—in and out of the sheets.
Once upon a time, Darius was Taylor’s world. Now his fierce embrace is exactly what she needs to get back on her feet. But Taylor pays a heavy price for her sizzling nights with Darius. As the emotional ties become stronger than ever and the paparazzi hunt her down for their next juicy story, Taylor must face some hard truths. They can’t go back. And to move forward, the key to loving Darius isn’t about keeping his secrets—it’s about exposing them.
When you think of a Dom, you think of a strong, intense, controlling man who knows what he wants. Darius is that and so much more. The vulnerability the author created in him made him more likable and relatable for me. Yes, it goes against the “norm”. However, it’s a different dynamic for a man of power, wealth, and strength.
At first I found it unbelievable that Darius would push Taylor away because of their age difference. But, the more and more I read and the more I got to know his back story, the more I understood his reluctance and instinct to protect the ones he loves. And Darius does love Taylor in his own way. He just doesn’t want her to hurt like the other women in his life have.
I love a rekindling romance between past lovers. The fact that Darius is Alex’s brother and Taylor is her best friend made the dynamic that much more enjoyable! I adore Stacey Kennedy’s writing and Tied to His Betrayal did not let me down! Another winner from her!
