Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up falling for her himself.
Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam’s crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn’t ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself—heart, body, and soul—to Liam?

My Review

If you are a lover of sexy men, hot sex, love triangles, and BDSM then this book NEEDS to be read.

I swear this book reads like one big crazy sexed up soap opera.

Six years ago runaway Raine Kendall, was rescued behind club Shadow; a BDSM Dungeon, by not only one of the club Dom’s, but the Master himself Macen “Hammer” Hammerman.

For six longs years Raine has been so completely in love with Macen; her boss and savior that she is living within the establisment in a constant state of hurt, jealousy and confusion. Hurt over the idea that Macen sees her as merely a little sister/girl, not the beautiful women she’s blossomed into. 
Jealousy of the other subs that Macen is willing to “scene” with and allow to be his sexual slaves, women who she feels cannot give Macen what he needs or deserves. And then there’s the confusion, confusion as to why, if uninterested in her, has he not allowed any other Dom to touch or claim her? He he knows that she is longing for proper gaining and the chance to serve. Especailly to him.

Raine has been biding her time playing the perfect worker; tending to Macen, doting on his every need, always watching and longing for him from a far.

That is until one night when she decided to take a chance…a chance that results in helping to propel a crazy chain reaction. Resulting in the creation of one CRAZY hot triangle of friend vs. friend, vying for complete submission of Raine Kendall, the girl who thought she was overlooked, never realizing that Macen was actually in love with her, he who simply didn’t allow himself the pleasure of her complete submission.

Macen has a secret past filled with sorrow, and regret. Two feelings that he can’t seem to move past in order to admit and commit his true feelings towards Raine. He's so caught up in his fear of hurting her in the end he is the one who suffers.

Regrets were like assholes; everyone had one.

And oh boy would Macen come to regret is lack of willingness to give into his feelings for Raine as well as allowing her the chance she longed for to be his ultimate Sub.

Liam is another Dom, as well as Macen’s best friend. Having been privy to Macen’s past, knowing his demos he decides to intervene in order to help push his long time friend into, he hopes the arms of Raine, the woman he knows his buddy loves.

But of course the best-laid plans always seem to have a kink, and what follows is a ton of angst-ridden moments that honestly left me confused as to whom I wanted Raine to end up with. Both Doms are crazy sexy in the "I'm going to paddle your ass" kinda way, that was enough to keep me drooling as I read. I couldn’t get enough of the budding Dom/Sub relationship between Raine and the sweet man that is Liam. But holy toledo the hottness radiating from Macen had me on fire!!! I wanted the sex scenes and arguments between Raine and Macen to go on and on! 
Holy shit their chemistry was palpable!

That being said, I have to admit that there where a few spots that I ended skimming over, as I wanted to fast forward ahead to the "good stuff". There were also times when I found Raine annoying and wanted her to make a fucking decision already, as I had trouble with her having back to back sex with both men. I also felt that the story line had a few lulls here and there, resulting in my loosing interest for a bit. But my biggest irk was the ending... I hadn't realized this wasn't the only book, that it is indeed a series when I stated reading, so needless to say, I will need to read book 2 asap, as I need to know what the hell is going to happen after that ending.
