The man of her dreams would give the orders. For him, she had two words that satisfied them both..."Take me."

For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies. Never her own. Until now...

Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything.

Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes. Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

Hi all! It's been a while, seems like forever! Since I last finished a book! Guess with the holiday season right upon me, and a tummy virus run rampant through my house, hitting all household members (including myself), I just hadn't really focused on listening. With that being said, I generally listen while doing chores and any down time, if it's a seriously awesome book, that keeps me going back for more, and with this one I just didn't do that... but that DOES NOT mean I didn't love this book. I completely did! LOL! I loved every single thing about this book! I was just MEH about the first book in this Sweet Series, Sweet Seduction, it was just okay to me. Didn't blow me out of the water, and was pretty forgettable, actually- but this one was great! I just loved the characters, even though the book was still read by Caroline Wintour (as was the first one, who's narrating skills killed me!), I really was able to put that aside this time and get into the plot and characters themselves. They deserved this book- Damon and Serena! I really loved their relationship; how it started, how it grew and how it ended up! I think it's fair to say that I'm now accustomed to Maya Banks writing style so I was really able to dive deep into this book. Like I said earlier, I didn't reach for my mp3 player while doing chores and while I had down time (I haven't had much lately), not because I didn't want to rush through it, because it was THAT good, and not because I completely hated it and groaned and gritted my teeth whenever I would listen; it had kind of turned into that "listen before going to bed", cozy, warm, sweet story that I often looked very forward to listening to after my evening shower, and while snuggling into my comfy bed, right before falling asleep. Granted some nights I would probably stay up too late, but oh well, I'm a grown adult- I can do that! :P I do hope that I get that sweet feeling from her next book (which I've just started while doing dishes today lol!) that I got while listening to this book. It was a great book!

I gave this book this many stars, though it probably could have used about 4.5:

  1. I love Damon, he really was sweet even with his dominating ways and the ending at the beach house killed me. Glad you are enjoying them!
