Who is Sebastian Lock?
The bar Sophia Pearce is in doesn’t look like much. The wine is bad and the decor worse. But when a sudden attack of curiosity leads her to sneak past security and into the back room, she discovers something unimaginable. The most lavish party she’s ever laid eyes on, in the most unlikely of places.
But that’s nothing compared to what comes next, to the man she meets back there. Sebastian Lock. Gorgeous, commanding, and radiating charm, he is exactly the sort of silver-tongued rake Sophia has sworn to avoid. Unfortunately, he doesn’t care much for her promises.
Every instinct tells her to run, but the chemistry between them is as inescapable as gravity. Soon, he’s opening her eyes to a whole new world of pleasures, pleasures she never thought she’d enjoy.
There’s just one problem. Sebastian is more than he seems. Between the famous company he keeps and the almost paranoid secrecy of his employers, he’s a puzzle Sophia can’t quite solve, and his insistence on keeping things casual forces her to confront the demons of her past.
Can she learn to trust again? Or will Sebastian’s privacy tear them apart?
Contains light BDSM, including spanking, restraint, and anal play.
Note: This book is the first part of a trilogy that is designed to be read together, much like The Blackstone Affair. Sebastian and Sophia will get their happily ever after, but not until the last book.
The first half of this book was so slow and I nearly stopped reading it. I get that it was setting up the storyline, but I think it could have been done quicker, with less mundane detail.
However, I'm glad I didn't put it down, as it finally picks up steam midway through when the main characters finally come together, literally. And then... dun dun dun... drama happens and theres a cliff hanger!
This is your basic - he's a rich dom, she's a sexually frustrated woman being introduced into bdsm - story.
It's worth reading if your looking for a quick erotic romance between longer novels or series.
I will be reading the rest of the series as the cliff hanger did catch my interest!
I give it 3 stars.
