I felt like a bit of mindless fun, and I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I actually really enjoyed it! It was a great weekend read!!!!! It rated really high on the ‘erotic romance’ category on goodreads, so I knew to expect the unexpected! And as a warning for people there is a scene with MFM.
Morgan is researching Dom and Sub relationships for an episode on her cable sex talk show, which is funny because she is very inexperienced when it come to sex. She was raised by a highly religious mother, who turned to the church after a failed romance with a married man. But Morgan is intrigued, there is something about submitting to a man and having a man take control in the bedroom that makes her a bit weak in the knees. This is something that she has been subconsciously seeking in previous relationships, but after sharing her desire with her ex fiancée, which does not go down well, Morgan has convinced herself that Dom and Sub relationships are barbaric and for deviants. When she meets with Jack in a public place to talk about his experience as a Dominant she is instantly drawn to him, there is just something about his demeanour that calls to her. The meeting is cut short when Morgan is shot at by a stalker that she is in hiding from, and Jack (an ex military now bodyguard) saves her life.
Jack, who has his own agenda when it comes to Morgan, cant help his protective instinct kick in, as well as his Dominant instinct. He convinces her to employ him as her bodyguard and whisks her away to his house in the middle of the swamp, where he takes his time convincing her that she is a born submissive. It does not take long for Jack’s revenge motivation to fly out the window and he finds himself falling for the perfect woman for him. He is convinced that Morgan is his soul mate, the one woman he has been dreaming about for years, and he will stop at nothing to convince her that she belongs with him. Unfortunately as we all know the best plans often go awry and when he finds himself having to face the lie he told her, he believes that his future with her is over. Or maybe her stalker can take her life before Jack can come clean.
Morgan is a fun character! She is so at war with herself it must be torture in her mind! While her body wants everything that Jack can dish out, her mind is determined that she will never be a submissive. She has internalised all the names her ex called her when he found out about her desires, and she finds it incredibly hard to come to terms with this. Not to mention that she is being stalked by a man whose actions and escalating, the only family she has is being shipped off to Iraq and the only person she can call a friend is number one on the list of possible stalkers. So coming to terms with your sexual preferences is probably not fore front in her mind. When Jack convinces her that all he needs in one night to convince her that she was born to be his partner, all bets are off.
Jack, how ever dominant he is, is just like any other person, he has fears, insecurities and annoying families. His Grandfather has been telling him from a young age about a curse on his family, which centres around the males in the family dreaming about his other half, his soul mate for months before he lays eyes on her. When Jack tells his Granddad that he dreamed of Morgan before he met her, the old guy pulls some sneaky moves to push them together. What he doesn’t know is that Jack, who initially used Morgan for revenge is actually falling for her, and digging himself a bigger and bigger hole!
So I really enjoyed this book, it was hot, but not so over the top it was unbelievable. Jack and Morgan have passion overload and I found myself wanting them both to get their happily ever after, even if I did think Jack was a dick for pulling what he did. There are a number of more books in the series, that I definitely think I will visit!
