At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.
Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.
Cora is a submissive that just kind of stumbled onto the life style. She councils runaway teens in real life and needs the stress relief that being a sub gives her. It’s her time to escape the dark world she advises in and at times cries over. She falls hard and fast for Aidan, but realizes he hasn’t gotten over his past. She becomes exactly what he needs, in spite of her own needs. Protecting Aidan with a ferociously that the Doms at Club Sin think is getting out of hand. When faced with what she has become and the fact that Aidan won’t get over his problems with time, she has to decide her course.
Aidan is a very strong character, but is also lost in what he needs, wants and what is right in front of him. Cora is equally strong in her life, and then becomes Aidan’s crutch in the kink life.
There are some hot erotic scenes in this book. They are full out erotic, painful at times, but also shows just how in tune the couple is with each other. There are some emotionally painful scenes as well, when all parties are confronted with the truths they aren’t acknowledging exist.
There are two other Doms that are Cora’s friends mostly, but they do also support Aidan. These are the men we wish were in every BDSM club. They saw what was happening to Cora and they pulled her out of the situation. They don’t let Aidan off lightly either. The make him face what he wants, needs and is willing to go after.
In the end Aidan realizes he loves Cora as much as she loves him and there is a HEA.
