Chelsea spent the past ten years rebelling against Zane’s control. When her parents died, he became her guardian, controlling her trust fund and the company they shared. But hating the control he exerted on her did nothing to stop her from wanting him.
When she refuses to obey his summons for a weekend meeting, he cuts off her money, leaving her in a strange city with no way to pay her hotel bill. Forced to accept his help and join him at his country house, she soon discovers his intention is not strictly business. When she experiences his potent masculine domination she finds the reality of being with Zane far exceeds her fantasies… leaving her wanting more.
But can she surrender to this forbidden love and be mastered by her guardian?
Oh how i do so love these quick reads when my day is kind of slow. So in this 3rd installment we meet a new set of characters – unrelated but so interesting none the less. We have Chelsea who is the owner of her own business but who has found herself somewhat controlled by her ‘guardian’ Zane. Their fathers were business partners and when both of their parents passed away when Chelsea was 16, Zane (who’s 10 years older) was appointed her guardian and controls her trust and all things tied to that. So once a year she’s forced to deal with him and the time has come this year to do it again.
The story that we are on here is one that’s of course expected but much hotter than that of the last installment. I guess that’s what a bit of kink and BDSM will give you. So Chelsea finds herself in Zane’s grips because he’s frozen her accounts so that she has no choice but to see him, and this all takes her from getting on a plane home to the house that he owns which she used to live in.
As expected, being forced into a house together will make things hotter and the fact that there’s clearly an attraction from each of them means that it’s just a matter of time and circumstances that we’ll see how it comes about. Thankfully we don’t have to wait long, since we find that Chelsea sleep walks herself into his bed and from there, we see things progress quite quickly.
They spend a few days all wrapped up in one another and are forced into a lot of deep conversations where Zane wants to move things forward and Chelsea has to decide if that’s what she wants since she doesn’t want to be controlled. Throughout this though we see some really hot play, a dungeon of sorts and well, you know waht comes with all that Sir and Master talk. It’s really exactly what i needed i think.
The shoe here is about to drop though right? Cause we know that Chelsea has a business partner who seems to have other motivations both personally and professionally and then there’s the fact that Zane lives in New York and she lives in San Diego – so who knows what will work. She ends up going home just to find her comp;any being ripped up from under her, with Bill and Zane becoming the henchmen, and we’re left with an ending that is not at all what we expected to happen.
Regardless of all that, it’s typical Opal Carew where you really can’t help but to keep reading since the chemistry and passion leaps off the pages and the fact that this was a novella makes it that much better since i didn’t have to read through too much other filler stuff to get to the heart of the story. On that note – enjoy!
