Club 3 Book 2
His stern commands set her free, but her love throws him for a loop.
Carlie Milton is blessed–great job, great friends, a loving father and brother. But her love life is a disaster, and her mother harps on every failure. Carlie has learned to hide behind a prim facade, and keep her feelings tied up inside.
She doesn’t expect to be rescued from her latest bad date by brooding heavy-lifter and Dom Jake Stone. But when he lets her glimpse his softer side, she can’t resist wanting more.
She follows her best friend Daisy to Dack and Jake’s private club. There, she submits to Jake’s bondage. The results are delicious, until the night she goes one step too far… and he shuts her out.
Ex-Marine Jake learned young that love breeds rejection. Now he holds his life together with self-discipline and control. Until Carlie’s lush body and utter trust release the demons of his past, in the worst possible way.
Now, to help his vulnerable beauty find the courage to open up again, he must make peace with his past. Can this decorated Marine find the courage to hand over the ties that bind his heart?
Yet another sizzling hot installment in the Club 3 series. There is so much going on in the background of this book you will have to read it more than once to get it all. I was thrilled to see a Dom portrayed as something less than perfect. They can and do make mistakes too. But oh the fun in watching them fix it.
Ms. Cade has upped her game! This book hit all the marks for me. Carlie & Jake made me root for them from the get go. I enjoyed their banter and dynamic sexual attraction/tension. Along with a well crafted story, which on its own tugged at my heart strings, Carlie's intro to BDSM play was naughty AND nice.
