Having It All (The Passion Series #3) by Livia Grant

Book Description:

Published: April 21, 2015

Lukus Mitchell is the owner of The Punishment Pit, Chicago’s top BDSM club. As the Master’s Master, he has enjoyed his freedom to play with a stable of subs over the years. He’s never contemplated settling down before, but is growing increasingly bored of the meek, pliant submissives who fail to challenge him.

Then he meets Tiffany O’Sullivan, a beautiful BDSM novice who has always yearned to explore her edgy dreams of submission, but whose sassy mouth always seems to land her in trouble.

Their attraction to each other is intense and immediate, but Tiffany challenges her new Dom like never before. They may start out at opposite ends of a BDSM tug-o-war, but can they meet somewhere in the middle—and if they do, can they both find happiness with the compromise?

Meanwhile, their best friends, Brianna and Markus Lambert, are still reconnecting after a recent event which almost ended their marriage. As awful as it was, it made them both realize not only how much they love each other, but also how important it is to share your darkest desires with your spouse.

Markus is more than willing to accommodate Brianna’s desire to be dominated in the bedroom, yet the couple has more than a few growing pains to work through as the dynamics of their marriage change from vanilla to D/s, with a sprinkle of DD.

Of course, Lukus tries to keep his cool, but it’s hard when her brothers and father is against him.

He finally has enough and decides he wants Tiffany more than ever and wants to make a committment so he proposes and she accepts.

I love love this series and can’t wait for the next installment out later this month or next.

Book Description:

Published: August 22, 2014

Brianna Lambert has it all. After escaping an abusive ex-Dom, she has the good fortune to find and marry the love of her life. Markus’ gentle and devoted love has helped her put the pieces of her life back together. There’s only one problem. As the years go by, Brianna finds herself missing the excitement of the BDSM lifestyle. If only she could talk to her gentle husband about her secret desire to be dominated in the bedroom, but as a submissive, she finds she can’t make the words come.

When her ex-Dom resurfaces in her life, the flames of lost desire are reignited, leading Brianna to make a decision with shattering consequences.

As Brianna’s best friend, Tiffany O’Sullivan understands and even shares Brianna’s hidden desire for a alpha male to protect, cherish and punish her when she’s earned it. Still, Tiff is furious when Bri puts her life and marriage at risk for a fling with her abusive ex.

When Brianna disappears, Tiff tracks her down at a local BDSM club where Markus has sent his wayward wife to atone for her infidelity at the hands of his own best friend – club owner, Master Lukus Mitchell. Tiff may go to The Punishment Pit to rescue her best friend, but quickly finds she may need rescuing herself after encountering the Master’s Master. And when Markus is again ready to confront his wayward wife he, too, must come to terms with a secret past.

Wanting It All explores the delicate balance of dominance and submission as well as the importance of trust and communication within D/s relationships with a story that features believable characters along with explicit, no-holds-barred acts of sexual dominance and submission, as well as domestic discipline.

In one extraordinary weekend, four best friends are thrown into circumstances that force them to open old wounds and dig deep to discover what they really need to make them happy in life.

If you’re looking for a book featuring an explicit, intimate, and heartfelt look into the physical and psychological attraction of BDSM, this is the one book you must put on your reading list.

Review –

I think I’ve said this before, but I am a newbie when it comes to reading erotica, erotic romances etc. and I thought I had read about every BDSM situation there was to read about BUT this book proved me wrong.   I never knew some of the things that happen in this book even existed and now that I do, it freaks me out a bit. I mean I know BDSM is a lifestyle and that people live it but do they really do these things.  I will not mention them here but just think the worst and that’s probably it.

That being said – I loved the characters and their depth of feeling and complexity.  I am looking forward to the next book to see where it will lead the storyline and if Lukas and Tiffany can make it.  I’m pulling for them.
