Samantha’s life as an attorney is pretty ordinary until the day she arrives at her office to find a death threat, compete with a large knife, on her chair. Then her usual PI is off in Vegas getting married and his new partner presses all her buttons. Between Zack taking her to a BDSM club, and dodging bullets and knives, Sam’s life is suddenly not so ordinary anymore.

I really enjoyed this story. It is a romantic suspense overlaid with a strong layer of BDSM, which means lots of action both inside and outside the dungeon. The fast pace and the hot sex keep the reader breathless, and the attitudes of the hero and heroine will have the reader alternately laughing, gasping, and spilling beverages on the screen. Zack deliberately pushes Sam’s envelope and she has a wicked sharp mind and sense of humor.

They are wonderful characters, full bodied, rounded, deep with many layers, but so very suited to each other and the chemistry sizzles. It was easy to see why they’d do some of the things they did. A couple of the minor characters were very well drawn too, coming to life with just a few words, but words that gave a real identity to them
If it hadn’t been for a small timeline glitch this book would have been marked even higher, I loved it so much. Plot, characters, action, humor. A wonderful read.

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