Tara Jacobs never thought that taking a field job would bring her face to face with her past but that is just what it does. When she and her fellow agent need extensive training to pass as a Dom and sub she is introduced to Logan Edington. The very man who broke her heart those many years ago in school. Little did she know that he had a reason for his actions but does she want to even hear that reason now? Tara cannot deny the instant attraction that she feels for Logan but can she keep her heart out of their relationship this time? With Logan determined to break down her walls and find her heart again keeping her mind on her mission and her thoughts away from love is going to be hard.

This book is a hot read and has a good storyline. I liked Logan. He is a good Dom and a great man. Logan has many hurts and has never given up his love for Tara. She was and always will be the woman for him. When he finds out that Tara is the agent that needs training he jumps at the chance and continues to fight for that chance. Tara is a sweet woman whose heart has never really healed from the past hurt. She has closed her heart off to everybody including her fiancée. Never showing her true self. The fireworks begin right from the start with these two and only grow into more as the book goes on. I enjoyed watching their relationship build. We get to see the hot attraction between them but also the love that shines through everything that they do.

Not only is there a romance but also a plotline that grabs the readers attention. The two must learn to trust each other as they work on their mission. There are some twists and turns that happened in this story but I am sorry to say that they did not surprise me. I figured out just who was the one they were after right from the start and through out my reading I kept wondering just when the characters themselves would figure it out. I may have figured it out early on but I did enjoy the relationship that rebuilds between Tara and Logan. They truly love each other and it was nice to see that love last. Watching Tara embrace her inner self was a nice read as well. She learns to listen to her body and give it what it wants and needs. Seeing her give in to them with Logan was a great read. She is not afraid to embrace her new wants and needs. Making this a book full of depth and emotions. The author does a good job of mixing the emotions and romance with the excitement of their mission. Although this book may not be a favorite I enjoyed the writers style and will be looking for more from this author in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
