What an incredibly well written, intensely provocative and thrilling story! I loved this read!
Hayes Fox was wrongly accused and sentenced to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. His trust was utterly and completely shattered and he’s vowed to keep everyone at arm’s length and never let his inner Dom free again.
Ren Muroya has just helped secure his best friends release from prison and though he has a shaky past and fears and insecurities that are seeded deep, he vows to find a way to bring Hayes from the same dark place he was once in himself. Hayes saved him once and now it’s his turn to save Hayes.
Cora Benning is tired of always playing it safe, of always fearing a danger that might be behind every corner and living behind her mother’s paranoia. Once given the chance to explore her hidden kinks in the open, she quickly accepts.
From the moment this book opens, I was completely hooked. Cora was a bright, quirky, lively heroine who didn’t cower behind the paranoia her mother instilled in her since childhood. She might have been cautious, but she was also adventurous. She had secret desires and the moment she’s given the chance to fulfill them, she excels. Hayes is intense and broody and all kinds of sexy. His connection to Cora was sweet and spicy at the same time. With her, Hayes is allowed to be himself and finds trust again. But it’s Ren that brings them all together. He refuses to leave the one man he’s truly loved most of his life, in the darkness. His light, fun, carefree attitude and his support and love and willingness to submit, shows Hayes how to be the Dom he once was. And when he meets Cora and understands what she could mean to both he and Hayes, he quickly brings her into the fold and slowly, these three create a unique, deliciously sexy relationship that has their interactions burning up the pages and me fanning myself to cool down!
This book has it all. There’s romance! There are two hot alpha men! There’s a strong, courageous heroine who ultimately completes their threesome. There are steamy bedrooms scenes that definitely gave me tummy flutters. There are funny moments that made me laugh out loud. There are touching scenes and real, honest emotions between the characters as well as some amazing and open dialogue which gave me wonderful chest pangs. And there’s mystery, because not everyone wants Cora, Hayes and Ren to be happy and someone is willing to do anything to send Hayes back to jail, ruin Cora and hurt Ren.
The moment I put this book down, I instantly wanted to pick it right back up and read it again. It’s already in my re-read pile!
This is book eight in the series, but it can be read as a STANDALONE. I’m so in love with the writing and the story that I’m going back to the beginning of this series to read them all, and adding this author to my favorites list.
