It is a hot, intense and quick read with BDSM elements and touches of erotica.
Desire: Blend sinful with sweet. Whip to perfection. Don’t forget to lick the spoon…
Aidn Greer is a much-sought-after Dominant in the BDSM lifestyle with an unusual problem. He hasn’t owned a submissive in more years than he cares to think about. He’s bored with unchallenging women, yet mentoring other Doms and training subs has left him cold as well. He’s craving something other than plain old vanilla—a taste of something sinfully sweet that, for once, he can really sink his teeth into.
Professional cake baker Bailey Harris wasted ten years bored to tears with her marriage, enduring a job she hated, and harboring a secret desire for something passionate, fulfilling and dark. Then she found it…in the world of BDSM. Exploring on her own brought the kind of mind-opening experiences that led her to declare her independence—and exposed a yearning to find the one Dom for whom she’s willing to kneel. Permanently.
When Aidn and Bailey meet, it’s fire and ice. Sugar and spice. And an experience that satisfies every detail of both their fantasies. Almost. While the big, beautiful sub is everything Aidn wanted, her fierce independent streak could be more of a challenge than he bargained for…
The characters are compelling and have a story behind them. I enjoyed how Bailey is submissive yet not a doormat, she is independent; unlike most BDSM stories where the submissive just seems so submissive, it's kinda irritating. I also love that Bailey runs a bakery and is a curvy woman, yet isn't bothered by it. As you can tell, I love Bailey!
One thing I didn't like was how Aiden kept running away, and then returning, and then running away again D< It gets irritating. Like dude, you're a dom, make up your mind and stop sending mixed signals. Plus there is no absolute HEA as well, so I'll classify this as a short, intense hot read.
