Dominant, crop-wielding men are all Kate dreams about, but how far is she willing to go?
Kate wants a man who will take charge—she just needs to find the right guy. Fortunately, her friend is throwing a kinky Halloween party with a guest list loaded with sexy, available men. That’s where she meets Banner.
Dark and intense, Banner’s not just a Dominant, he’s a Master looking for a slave. Kate isn’t interested in something that extreme, but when he offers to help her find the perfect Dom, while training her to be a flawless submissive, she’s glad to have a matchmaker and protector.
Banner knows they’re not compatible, yet something about Kate is impossible to resist. Once he finds her the right Dom, will he be able let her go?
Kate finds herself at a party and having a good time until a Dom comes on a little too hard. That's when she meets Banner who is also a Dom. Kate wants to experience what it's like to be a submissive but she's also very independent and has a hard time giving up control.
Banner wants a slave not just a submissive but he has specific thoughts about what his submissive would be like. He isn't interested in having Kate as his sub since she's new to all of this and he wants someone more experienced that will be his 24/7 whenever he wants her. After talking with her a little he agree's to help find her a Dom and look out for her so she doesn't get taken advantage of since she's a newbie.
Banner mentions he's a sadist and that she might find his tastes to be disturbing but he never really comes right out and tells the reader what it is exactly that he wants in a sub. I found this to be very irritating. I wanted to know why he thought she would never be right for him. Maybe he really didn't know what he wanted as much as he thought he did and that's why we as readers didn't know. But I'm just guessing.
I really liked Banner. He's a genuinely nice guy. He's great to his friends and family. He has a funny side and he wanted to look out for Kate as soon as he met her. But Kate was challenging and not at all meek or sub like at first so when Banner introduced her to one of his friends, it didn't go well. Banner finally agrees to train her himself but he's fighting an attraction he feels for her. When these two do come together, they are smokin' hot. Just wow.
Just when things are looking interesting for these two and her training is coming along, Banner wimps out and confuses Kate by giving her to one of his Dom friends to continue her training. She finds this guy attractive and she doesn't mind being with him, but the sparks just aren't flying like they do with Banner. If these two had just communicated a bit better about what they wanted and how they felt, a lot of heartache could have been avoided.
I read this book in one sitting because I was so engaged and wanted to know what would happen next with these characters. I'm looking forward to the next book.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
