The last thing Brianna needs after submitting to Orion in her dreams is a man, let alone one that looks exactly like him. But there’s something hauntingly familiar about Jace and the way he looks at Bree when she meets his gaze from across the bar.

Unable to sleep, no thanks to her neighbors’ sexcapades, she’s aching for an out. Even if it means a one night stand with her Dom’s lookalike who up until now didn’t exist. But when this new stranger declines her sexy invitation, she’s determined to figure Jace out—one painful layer at a time.

After getting screwed by his ex, Jace isn’t even remotely interested in being someone else’s master, especially when it involves putting his band’s career on the line. But avoiding the lifestyle of a Dom is easier said than done, unless he finds someone to take him off the market—which makes Bree just the woman he’s looking for.

Sometimes dreams do come true.  I really liked this story, and it was well written. The author did a great job of blending fantasy and real life without it becoming cheesy or getting too paranormal.

Brianna is missing something in her life. She dreams of a Dom named Orion. She is shocked when she meets a man named Jace Evans that looks, and smells almost like Orion in the flesh. She is a very strong character except when it comes to her co-worker and friend Karie. Her emotions throughout the story are very realistic and honest. It is even more real as the Brianna’s dream world and the real world seem merge. She came across as a very likeable character.

Karie is Brianna’s co-worker and friend. She comes across as a bit nutty and unrealistic. The one thing that stayed in my mind about  this character was that maybe originally she was two different characters that were merged together as the story was written. Karie seemed to switch emotions as easily and fast as a light switch being flipped.

Jace is aspiring musician who meets Brianna in a club. While he is taken with her, he realizes from the start that she is a submissive. He struggles with becoming her Dom after a horrible experience. I really liked Jace, he was not an ego driven Dom. He was the type of man that most women want. He balanced the Dom and himself very well. I loved that he was honest about his feelings when asked. He does not hide anything from her.

The one problem I did have with the story was the explanation of Orion. There was no real explanation as to why he looked like Jace, why he appeared, or why he disappeared. What explanation the author tried to give was very lack luster and unbelievable. It was like the author got caught up in other parts of the story and forgot to deal with that part.

The sex scenes were very hot between Orion and Brianna and Brianna and Jace. There is a lot of chemistry between Jace and Brianna, but not as much between Orion and Brianna. I loved the ending of the story. It was perfect.

If you like BDSM themed books then you will love this book! I really liked the characters in this book and how they interacted. I hope we get to see more of these characters in the future.
