A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He’s never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor.
Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He’ll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he’s just fine with that too.
Sure, he knows she likes “pretty boy” slaves. And he’s older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go.
"Mistress, if you want more, you're going to have a dead body in this bed."
"You're safe, guard dog."
A rather...intriguing character. I absolutely adored the conversations and exchanges between the both of them.
"Is there anything else I can do for you before I leave?:
She bit down on her lips to keep from laughing. He was a demon submissive, firecely determined to be sweet. "No, I think you've covered the bases."
He said under his breath, "Didn't get close to running the bases."
She gave him a reproving look, and to her delight, he actually flushed.
"Thank you for the ride...and the care, Benjamin." And the kiss.
He nodded, paused, and his heavy brows came together. "Ma'am? Stay in bed tomorrow and get healed up."
A bossy submissive. Why couldn't she summon the appropriate amount of annoyance? Her standards must be slipping, she thought as the bed rose up and enfold her and sleep carried her away.
Overall, this book is a huge "I LOVED IT". A little heads up as this book involves the previous couples, you might want to read from the start of the series. The other stories, which I've already read, are also equally good!
"Thank you, Ben," Anne said. "Nicely done."
"I swear, that's the only reason God put males on this earth - for bug disposal,"
Anne considered, her gaze still caught in Ben's.
"They might have a..few...other reasons."
His eyes warmed.
"Yeah. I made the mistake of saying that to Vance and he told Galen and they spent an entire night demonstrating. Reason after reason after reason." Sally sounded positively disgruntled. "I couldn't even get out of bed the next morning."
Anne's lips twitched.
