Everything to prove and everything to lose.

One night to show bodyguard Rose Dainty that he can be the Dom she needs.

One night to show her that submitting to him doesn’t make her weak, that true submission requires strength and trust.

Will pushing Rose to her limits prove to her she can trust him with her body and heart, and can she let go of her deepest fears long enough to enjoy her surrender?

A well trained and professional bodyguard, Rose is perfectly comfortable with danger and risk in her professional life. In her personal life, however, she’s been reluctant to follow through on her true desires. Lucien has known for months that deep down Rose yearned to give up her control. Has the time finally come for them to both take what they really want?

I found this to be a well paced and interesting short story. While Rose and Lucien’s characters are both fairly straight forward I found myself really enjoying and empathizing with Rose’s voice and the author’s style of narration. It was clear to me from the first page that even though Rose was a strong, capable and very modern woman she was new and a little off-kilter with the depth and hunger of her sexual needs. This small snippet of vulnerability really had me relating to Rose and helped make her feel more human to me – I wanted to watch her explore this side of herself that was new to her and I was rooting for her from the beginning.

Each chapter alternated from Lucien’s to Rose’s perspective and I found this really helped me connect with both characters. While I continued to find Lucien somewhat mysterious I enjoyed that his affection and desire for Rose was genuine and deep-seated. It was refreshing to me that he didn’t start from the perspective of curiosity or wanting to teach (or worse to my mind – train) Rose into the BDSM lifestyle but held her not only in high esteem but he really wanted a proper and lasting relationship with her. I felt this lent an air of spice and edge to the whole story – knowing it wasn’t a game or a test-run for Lucien in particular, but more of an urgent desire to mesh both their needs into a form of intimacy they could both enjoy and explore together.

Readers looking for an intense plot outside of the growing relationship between Rose and Lucien probably won’t be satisfied with the stalker side-plot. Only mentioned briefly then wrapped up very quickly toward the end I really feel that the main conflict and plot element is the self-discovery between Rose and Lucien and the deepening of their sexual relationship.

The sex between Rose and Lucien was hot, intense and quite kinky. Readers looking for something with a bit of spice should find this aspect of the story quite satisfying. I was also intrigued by Lucien’s half-brother and am hopeful that there might be a follow-up story revolving around him.

Hot, intense and kinky this is a great, quick read and I really enjoyed it. I’ll be keeping an eye out for any future works from this author.
