You'll burn baby. You'll burn. For me.
So it's really no secret that I love a good BDSM romance. Know why?
While the dynamic between Declan and Molly is that of a D/s, I'd call this book BDSM lite :). It was a sexy romance, but there wasn't heavy BDSM elements like you'd find in say, Cherise Sinclair or Kallypso Masters. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the hell out of it. Because I have definitely found me a new author to read. This was my first book in the series, and I'll definitely be going back to read the rest of them now. I'm hooked!
Declan is the lead singer of Savage Heart. A few months ago, after an incident in Philadelphia that's shrouded in mystery, caused Declan to throw out his best friend and lead guitarist, Sorren, out of the band. It also resulted with a trip to rehab for himself. But things are not ultimately the way that they seem, and only a handful of people know what really happened.
Molly goes on tour with Savage Heart in order to get to the bottom of what happened the night the band broke up and then write a book that will bring them back from the dead.
She is prepared for a lot; groupies, havoc, dealing with being on a tour bus with a bunch of rock stars. What she is not prepared for is the utter magnetism that is Declan and the effect he has on her. Hiding a troubled childhood and a pain from her past, Molly doesn't remember the last time she reacted this way to a man. But in order to build the career she needs to help support herself and her sister, she knows that she cannot give in no matter how sexy Declan's voice or body might be.
Declan knows what he wants when he sees it, he is a Dom after all, and he can see the sexy submissive beneath the bluster. He makes no qualms in making it clear to Molly what will happen, no matter how much she may fight it.
You don't get to have me, Declan Donovan. That's not what's going to happen. What's going to happen is that I'm going to get to the bottom of what happened between you and Soren Andersson in Philadelphia, and you're going to respect me. And then I'm going to write the best goddamn book you've ever read. And at the end of it-"
"You're going to let me fuck you senseless."
Now who can deny THAT for too long? Certainly not Molly. Even though an even from her past makes her unsure as to where all this will go, and she's terrified of having her heart broken, she can't stay away from Declan.
The chemistry between the two of them is combustible. But both of them are scared of getting their feelings involved, although for different reasons of their own
He'd made rules for himself, rules he'd meant to keep. But this wasn't love; this wasn't emotion. This was pure, raw, physical connection.
Both Declan and Molly hide a troubling and dark pasts. While Molly's story is revealed in bits and pieces, Declan's continues to be shrouded in mystery.
Can Molly get to the heart of the man, without getting her own broken in the process?
I really enjoyed this book. Though there were moments where I wanted to smack Molly, given her history I can understand some of the thoughts and decisions she made. I did feel the ending was a tad bit rushed, especially since there was a lot of buildup toward the big revelation of what truly happened between Soren and Declan. But it looks like we will get a continuation on their story in Soren's book.
If you like steamy BDSM-y romances with a hot tatted up, rock star Dom, definitely give this one a try.
I am thrilled to hear that Soren's story is next. He's mysterious, he's BLONDE, and his name is SOREN. I'm still on a Mistress hangover, so this is definitely music to my ears :)
