With all she has to offer, she’s his to command…

Aria DeWitt is a runaway bride. Only months away from her wedding, she panicked, returning her engagement ring and donating her gorgeous gown to charity.

She’s less than pleased when she’s reassigned to a new work project and sent to work with Grant Kingston in the middle of nowhere. She knows of his reputation as a recluse and genius, but she isn’t prepared for how handsome, powerful and deliciously Dominant he is, or how he ignites something inside her that no man ever has.

Grant isn’t happy when his cherished solitude and creativity is shattered by Aria’s unwanted and unwelcome arrival. That is until he glimpses her carefully concealed vulnerability. Aria’s confidence and responsiveness intrigue him, ensnaring him in a way he’d never believed possible, chipping away the ice that shrouds his heart.

As he interacts with her, he realizes why she ran from marriage. She’s never met someone strong and complex enough to hold her interest. And suddenly, he’s determined to be that man.

I am a fan of Sierra Cartwright, but I have to admit that Command started a little slow for my taste. At first, I didn’t even feel a connection with the characters. They both seemed to be workaholics that would never be able to see beyond their office tasks. I was of course, wrong.

As Ms. Cartwright builds the relationship between the characters she also develops Grant’s and Aria’s jobs. The characters stop feeling like obsessive workers and become people with a common goal both in and out of the bedroom. Their relationship is not only based on their sexual attraction but also on their brilliant minds.

However, even though I warmed up to both Grant and Aria, for some reason, I have to admit that these are the characters which have caused the least impact on me out of all of Cartwright’s novels.

The sex, as in all of Ms. Cartwright’s novels is well written, hot and never boring. (The author demonstrates well that BDSM is much more than kneeling, spanking, cuffs and flogging).

One line that will forever stay with me is when Aria asks: How would you introduce someone to your BDSM world?” And Grant answers:“I already have.”

Command is a definite must read if you’re looking for some sizzling BDSM and a well written story that goes beyond sex.
