Lucia Roa needs a miracle to keep her fledgling event planning business from going under. When she gets word about the opportunity of a lifetime to do a Valentine’s Day party for an elite club in Washington D.C. she jumps at the chance. It’s not until afterward, that she learns the party isn’t for just any club, it’s for the premier private BDSM club, Wicked. Desperate to make the social and professional connections that this job would offer, she agrees to a most unconventional and risqué business arrangement with the handsomest man she’s ever met.

CEO Isaac O’Keefe swore off relationships years ago after having his heart broken and his bank account emptied by his gold-digging first wife. He thought he’d managed to keep his heart under lock and key, but when Lucia walks into his office he is instantly drawn to the fiery beauty. He convinces Lucia to take the position as event planner for Wicked’s Valentine’s Day party, but in order to make the event a success, he must give her a crash course at all the dark pleasures BDSM has to offer.

Compatible goals quickly explode into something much steamier, but will Isaac be able to open his heart to his Wicked Valentine?

Lucia wants to make her company one of the best party planning companies around. Her mentor, Sara, sends her to Isaac who needs more than just a party planner in her eyes and Sara knows that Lucia fits the bill. When Lucia finds out just what kind of party Isaac is planning and what it may entail her to do she balks but promises to think things through over in the next few days. This once in a lifetime opportunity would be a shame to pass up. Can there be a connection with a vanilla girl like Lucia and a kinky man like Isaac? Has Sara’s matchmaking finally paid off?

This was a great introduction to the club called Wicked and the people associated with it. I adored Lucia. She is a strong willed woman who wants to make it in life and will stop at nothing to try and achieve her goals. Isaac is a wonderful man but he guards his heart because of the hurt in his past. Watching Lucia break down the walls Isaac has put up was a wonderful read. She loves with all her heart and enjoys life to the fullest, giving everything she has. Lucia is honest and loving which is something totally alien to Isaac and seeing him react to her made for a beautiful read. Emotions run high as the two try to figure out just where they stand. Isaac longs for what Lucia can give him but is afraid to let his guard down and he may lose her because of it.

Not only did the main characters shine, but the secondary characters endeared themselves to me, making me eager for the next book in this series. I loved seeing Isaac’s closest friends help to show him just what Lucia truly means to him. This hot read is also a beautiful romance that pulled me in from the start and kept me entertained all the way until the end.
