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.

First let me say that this is “Book 2” but it can definitely be read as a standalone. I had not read book 1 and loved this story.

This is a story about Bridget Carter and Conner Black.
Bridget knew Conner from a BDSM club called Eden. They had never been together, but she was very aware of him, and come to find out, he was very aware of her.
Bridget had a child at the age of 16 and gave him up for adoption. She begins to get phone calls from a boy, his name is Alex and is now 14, who is needing her help.

“I think you’re my mother. Please, help me.”

Bridget goes to Conner for help. She figured since he owns Blacklight Securities, he would be a great person to help her find out where this boy is and what is happening to make him call her.

So now that they are working together, and getting to know each other, things change between them personally. They begin to play at the Club.

“It was a zing I had never felt before with any other Dom, and it left me slightly unnerved.”

There is some darkness behind Conner, and you need to find out what makes him sexy.. and what makes him tick.

I loved how the story just seemed to flow… before I knew it, it was over. It kept my interest as to what was going to happen next, and the scenes between Bridget and Conner were super HOT.

So that is where I am going to leave you in this review… if you want to read a story with a good plot, super sexy scenes and some suspense, this story is for you!
