*****BLURB*****

When secrets surface…

Bridget Carter seems to have the perfect life. She’s happily single and has a career she loves as a fashion designer at a local boutique. She enjoys playing at Club Eden and bounces from one Dominant to another. She’s not looking for love, even though she’s more than intrigued by Connor Black. When a secret from Bridget’s past surfaces, Bridget and Connor are forced to work together to protect an innocent.

The battle begins…

Scarred inside and out, Connor Black fights to protect those who can’t protect themselves. He also hides behind a mask of confidence. Battling against his own insecurities, he secretly envies the boldness Bridget exudes. He watches her with a look of longing he thinks he’s kept hidden. And when Bridget comes to him for help, he realizes he can no longer keep his desire secret. But an enemy is ready to strike and Connor must battle his inner demons to protect the people he is coming to love.

***ABOUT THE AUTHOR***
LK Shaw is a physical therapist assistant by day and writer/social media addict by night. She resides in South Carolina with her high maintenance beagle mix dog, Miss P, who should probably just have her own Instagram account. An avid reader since childhood, she became hooked on historical romance novels in high school. It wasn’t until within the last seven or eight years she tried her hand at contemporary romances. While historical romance remains one of her favorite go-to genres, romantic suspense, especially with a little kink thrown in, have become a first pick from her TBR list.
She initially began writing in November 2015 as part of National Novel Writing Month, when, suddenly, the story became something more than just a “sure, I’ll try to put some words together”. The vision for the story snowballed and, before she knew it, she began taking steps toward publishing. Each book in her first series feature Romantic Suspense and BDSM combined.

LK loves to interact with readers. You can follow her on any of her social media:

Goodreads Rating: 4 stars

This story is about Penny, who never seems to find happiness in her relationships. Each one is the same, unfulfilling, boring, vanilla, relationship. Penny finds herself just going through the motions in relationships and in life. One day, Penny decides to go to a vanialla, BDSM picnic. There she met Marcus.

*Side Point* This is my vision of Marcus:

Marcus, like most Doms, can easily spot Penny out for what she is. Over the next week or so, Marcus and Penny begin a D/s relationship. Penny falls in love with Marcus, which, sometimes happens in a D/s relationship.

I won’t go more into the story, because it will provide way too many spoilers. I will, however, talk about how I feel about this story.

One, I feel like MORE in depth sex scenes would have been nice. I feel that it is a little too Light BDSM for me. I know it was an “intro” for Penny, and Marcus, as a good Dom, really was trying to introduce Penny slowly. But, sometimes, you just kind of have to jump in and go for it 🙂 Second, the “climax” of the story, I wish there was a smidgen more. There are certain scenes that just kind of happen, and we never really know. Again, I can’t go into it without giving spoilers.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast and easy read. There were some grammatical errors, but the story was still enjoyable. I think it is a great intro story for D/s relationships. It also touches on briefly determining the difference between abuse and appropriate in D/s relationships.

My only wish was that there were more D/s non-vanilla encounters. I felt that it was a little PG13 for what it could have been. I feel it is okay to really dig into some of the toys and aspects of BDSM beyond some spanking and tying up to the bed. I also thought the menage encounter was good, but again, wished it had a little more BDSM. It is a light BDSM story.

Overall, I really did enjoy it. I could picture Marcus as this rustic, gorgeous, older man. I like that this story had an older man, and was not really NA Erotica. The same for Penny. I do like that she was older and that she had her life together (ish).

LK Shaw lives in South Carolina with her highly spoiled and extremely needy beagle-mix pup. She began reading at an early age and devoured as many books as she could. Her favorite authors as a young teen were Christopher Pike and RL Stine. During the summer between her junior and senior years of high school, she ran out of books and asked her mom to loan her one of her “stupid romances”, and then she regretted ever calling them stupid. Because from that first book, she was hooked and hasn’t stopped reading them since. At one time, she owned over 1000 romance novels. Some of her favorite historical romance authors include Christi Caldwell, Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Tessa Dare. Some of her favorite contemporary romance authors include Julia Sykes, Ella Dominguez, Skye Callahan, and Meghan March.
