A man who gave up on love
Mitch Bradford is an intimidating man. In his professional life, he has a reputation for demolishing his opponents in the courtroom. At the exclusive BDSM club Sanctum, he prefers disciplining pretty submissives with no strings attached. In his line of work, there’s no time for a healthy relationship. After a few failed attempts, he knows he’s not good for any woman—especially not his best friend’s sister.
A woman who always gets what she wants
Laurel Daley knows what she wants, and her sights are set on Mitch. He’s smart and sexy, and it doesn’t matter that he’s a few years older and has a couple of bitter ex-wives. Watching him in action at work and at play, she knows he just needs a little polish to make some woman the perfect lover. She intends to be that woman, but first she has to show him how good it could be.
A killer lurking in the shadows
When an unexpected turn of events throws the two together, Mitch and Laurel are confronted with the perfect opportunity to explore their mutual desire. Night after night of being close breaks down Mitch’s defenses. The more he sees of Laurel, the more he knows he wants her. Unfortunately, someone else has their eyes on Laurel and they have murder in mind.
We met the characters some many books and novellas ago and I, for one, couldn’t wait to see what Lexi did with them :D
Mitch is emotionally stunted. His mum sucked and so did his 2 ex-wives. He recognizes a good thing when he sees it(Laurel), but he doesn’t really know what to do with it. He has a funny way of getting in touch with his wants and needs, especially with a woman: his penis tells him. I love when his penis talks to him. LOVE. IT! He’s afraid to believe something amazing is happening to him so he really puts his foot in when he feels threatened by his feelings for Laurel.
Laurel is a sweetheart. She’s kind and OCD in organizing stuff:
”You can’t go around destroying my files.”
“Good god, Mitchell. I didn’t destroy the files. I scanned them in. Please tell me you don’t think that involves the computer eating the files or something.”
She also has amazing sarcasm. She fell in love with Mitch and doesn’t know how to really make him see her and accept her love. She likes to take care of people and she has an amazing moral compass. Laurel has some thoughts of giving up on the complicated and emotionally repressed Mitch, but she always sees how good it can be between them.
Lexi delivers another entertaining, fun and dazzling story. It has humor, action, great sex *wink wink* and the characters we’ve come to love. She also threw a glimpse worthy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I can’t wait to see what event happened that she refered in the epilogue.
I won’t stop this time. I won’t play the gentleman again,” he whispered before his mouth descended on hers.
Thank god. Six months. They’d passed and every night she dreamed about what they could have had if he hadn’t played the damn gentleman that night in Hawaii. They’d wasted six months. Six months when she could have felt him against her, when she could have had the heat of his body to warm her own. They could have been sleeping together, sharing a life beyond the confines of this office.
His lips found hers and he was ravenous. He slanted over her mouth again and again, dominating and taking what he wanted. His tongue surged in and she could feel that slow slide in her womb.
Just like that she was wet and ready. Her body felt malleable, as though it knew this man was the one who could mold her and bring her to fruition. Every inch of her body felt primed. Her nipples rasped against the fabric of her bra, her breasts heavy and wanting. Her clothes were suddenly too tight and she wanted nothing more than to throw them off. She didn’t need clothes around him.
A sudden vision of what it would be like now that Mitch was finally claiming her stamped itself in her brain. She could hear him commanding her to be naked when they were alone. She would curl up at his feet as they relaxed. It would be the two of them and they wouldn’t have to argue. They would be together.
His hands found her backside, squeezing. A low groan ground out of his mouth as he explored her. She could feel herself softening, offering herself up for his slow exploration. This was the man who would finally teach her what all the fuss was about.
Mitch pushed her to be better than she was, to think more clearly about points of law and to challenge herself to greater heights. She’d always known it would be the same in the bedroom. She’d had lovers before, but sex had been something to do, a way to show affection. Sex with Mitch was a force of freaking nature.
