One day she’d be his.

Almost a decade ago, Marcus Grimes worked as a bodyguard to a man who didn’t deserve the woman he’d had. When she finally left, Marcus vowed to eventually find her and make her his.

The time is now.

Marcus runs into Gabi at a BDSM club, indulging in a different partner every week but never really exploring beyond the mere superficial. She doesn’t remember him, and he convinces her to give him a chance.

All she has to do is open.

Until she meets Marcus Grimes.

There is something familiar about him, which should have stopped her, but instead spurs her on, and before she realizes it, Marcus is not only opening her body to his exploration, he’s also delving into her heart.

However, when their mutual past comes to light and everything she’s fought for during the last eight years is jeopardized, will she close herself off again or will she give love an opportunity?

Marcus had known Gabi many years ago. When he bumps into her at a BDSM club he finds that the young, vulnerable woman he had known had grown up into a sleek and savvy adult. Gabi was open to trying pretty much anything, but she never went back to the same Dom more than once. Marcus was determined to be the one to change that.

This is a sexy and interesting short story. I enjoyed how Gabi and Marcus had a history but that instead of it being weighty and acting like baggage between them it acted more like incentive for Marcus to be possessive and protective of Gabi. The plot between them felt fresh to me and not contrived – I liked how Gabi took a while to recognize Marcus from their short interaction a number of years ago as this added a bit of tension to the plot that gave it a boost to my mind.

There’s a lot of sizzle between Gabi and Marcus. Personally, I found the tug of control between them – Marcus being a Dominant and Gabi being very well-versed in the lifestyle and trapping of the BDSM world – interesting and an excellent plot throughout the whole story. The depth of Gabi’s knowledge though, and her experience in knowing exactly how to (nicely) manipulate Doms to do what she wants without making it appear so might not be a comfortable read for everyone. I enjoyed this very different viewpoint and enjoyed the story for it – but Gabi is not at all like your average submissive and the tension and struggle between her and Marcus mightn’t be to everyone’s tastes.

I also personally really enjoyed that they didn’t jump right into bed. A very large part of Gabi’s power was her willingness to submit in scenes and use her body to get what she wanted. Note Gabi didn’t often use her body sexually, but the power and pull of her submission and allure to men. Had she and Marcus jumped quickly into bed I feel Gabi could have easily buttonholed Marcus in with all the other Doms she’d been with and their relationship wouldn’t have ever got off the ground in a realistic manner. So I was glad that while there was plenty of sexual chemistry and tension, it was only in the latter half of the story that they became intimate. The sex, when they got there, was hot and explicit and I felt just kinky enough to appeal to readers who enjoy some BDSM in their erotica.

A different and interesting read, I enjoyed this story.
