Overview

dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?

There’s something different about Sawyer: a commanding strength that pulls Chloe into a vortex of heady desire. But when she learns about his double life as a Dom, she’s shocked—and afraid she could never complete him. Then he saves her life, and just like that, Chloe knows she will be able to give him anything he desires. She is his—wherever and however he wants to take her.

My Thoughts

we all knew this story was coming – There was a connection that we saw between Chloe (a PI who works for Porter) and Sawyer from their first meeting – so it’s interesting to see how that plays out in this 6th installment to the series.

What’s unique in this story is that we start off by learning that Chloe has been dating the same guy since high school and of course that creates a bit of a problem for her, while really none at all for Sawyer. he’s just THAT confident.  Luckily for the two of them, Chloe and her boyfriend realize that they aren’t meant for the long haul and break up amicably.

The downside though is where this story starts for Sawyer and it’s not a good place.  while mentoring another Dom in the club, he’s called away by his father after learning that his sister has been beaten severely, likely by her boyfriend, and is in the hospital.  So that’s where the biggest bit of the story takes shape.  Sawyer needs Chloe’s help to locate the boyfriend and that’s what she’s put out to do.

In being thrown together, Chloe’s forced to admit her feelings for Sawyer, feelings that as a Dom he’s quite aware of.  It makes the experience and the interactions so much more intriguing to watch because Chloe is quite vanilla and doesn’t seem to be a fit in the kink world that the others live in.  she submits to him sexually but doesn’t understand the allure of everything else.

This quest to find Travis, the boyfriend that beat up Sawyers sister turns up empty in a lot of cases, with every resources turning up with little to go on in the hopes of finding him.  he’s being hidden by his family and friends and while everyone refuses to give up in finding him, it’s not coming easy.

While all that is going on though,  at least it gives time for Chloe to learn more about Sawyer and vice versa to see what’s there.  Chloe’s very pure and innocent to a sense, and Sawyer has this fear of corrupting that and ruining it.  He even makes decisions for her that Chloe may not agree with in the hopes of keeping the essence that he loves about her intact.

So what this means is that we’ll have a lot of amazing sceneing, and lots of great make up anger sex and then hopefully in the middle of it all, they’ll catch a break and find Travis.

Where they come across him is completely unexpected and what happens from there is even more so a shock.  It prompts a lot of things to happen at once and a few changes that are quite shocking from what we know of the characters in the series thus far.  It’s left me wondering what the final installment can give us since this one shook me up a bit and thankfully i’ve got that last book handy so i can check it out now.  Enjoy!
