Love........................The Ultimate Loss of Control.
Rain and Raven Medici are identical twins. Although they come from a loving close-knit family their childhoods couldn’t have been more different. Raven went to school and was exposed freely to the outside world. Rain on the other hand was born with a blood disorder and denied many normal childhood experiences.
Once grown, Raven becomes a lawyer at their dad’s firm Kane & Medici in NYC. Rain along with her only childhood friend Tommy Conte, builds a very successful business as professional photographers. Traveling between Europe and Manhattan, and enjoying a world that was kept from her, Rain vows never to be controlled again.
Dominick Kane is a product of his upbringing. He’s powerful, self-assured and knows he can achieve anything he desires. Nothing gets in his way. There is only one thing he has ever failed at. A relationship with his father Vincent Kane. Upon his father’s death, Dominick vows revenge. The events he sets in motion put him on a collision course he himself will be unable to control.
In a bizarre twist of fate, Dominick kidnaps Raven as part of his plan for revenge. Only to discover afterward, he has taken Rain by mistake. Rain knows she can never survive being confined again. So she strikes a bargain with the devil and agrees to help Dominick get back what he feels rightly belongs to him. His father’s share of Kane & Medici.
Dominick decides to use the strong attraction growing between Rain and himself to control her in every way imaginable. Too bad no one ever taught Dominick you can’t control the heart. Nothing could have prepared him for the effect Rain would have on his.
Will this plan of revenge turn into unconditional love? Or will Dominick and Rain’s need for control ultimately destroy them and any possible chance for a real future together.......
“How could you have such an asshole for an owner?” I said out loud.
“Maybe he doesn’t think I’m an asshole, Miss Medici.”
Even when he realises that Rain isn't her sister, he refuses to release her. He is hell bent on destroying her father. Rain bluntly tells him that she will have no part in his plans but Dominick has other ideas. He plans on seducing her but Rain won't make it easy for him.
“Would you like at martini?”
“Do you like them dirty?”
He grinned, teasing me but his eyes revealed something
“Very.” I whispered.
He was amused by my answer. Two can play at this game Mr. Kane.
I have to admit, Dominick does his best to woo Rain. And let me tell you, there is no shortage of hot and steamy scenes ;)
“This is mine now. It belongs to me and only me. I feel the way you react to me and I know how I react with you. It’s only us here and I intend to make you understand that. Even if I have to keeping fucking you until you do.”
As he released me from our kiss, he stared into me eyes and said: “You are so beautiful Rain. Even more beautiful with me buried deep inside you. I love your sweet body wrapped around me.” Our breathing was more labored now. We were both there in that moment. Just us.
“Come for me, Rain. Come for me now.”
His words were all it took for my release to hit me. I came so hard it was painful. Then Dominick’s breath changed. It had become shallow, but harsh all at once.
“Fuck! I’m gonna come baby.”
And then he says this:
“Rain, I want to be your ‘Somewhere’, your safe place. Let me prove it to you. Do you hear me, baby?”
What will happen now? Can Dominick repair the damage he's done? Can Rain forgive him? Can she trust him? Some many questions! Cleo certainly knows how to leaving us in suspense! I was like ahhh!!!! Cleo! How could you leave me with so many questions!!!
