Overview

I was standing at the bar and waiting for a friend when it happened.

When my life changed forever. 

She strutted inside with her head held high with grace, not pretentiousness. With legs that reached her neck, and an hourglass frame perfect for gripping, she got me hard instantly.  

And those green eyes got the rest of my body hard too.  

Mistaking me for the man who cheated on her friend, she walked up to me, those green eyes burning with fire, and she slapped me so hard my skin bubbled. 

And damn, it felt good. 

She slapped me two more times, using her petite size to gain momentum as her palm crushed into my skin. 

I never wanted it to end.  

I’d never met a woman who made pain feel so good. I’d never met a woman as strong as myself. I’d never met a woman I wanted to dominate more.  

I’d never met a woman like her. 

Rome Moretti. 

My next submissive.

My Thoughts

This is a very dynamic story that we’ve entered into, with so many twists and turns of uncertainty that i think it’s going to be great. We start this story with our mains, Calloway, a Dom and a man who knows exactly what his tastes are and has determined that he’ll never compromise. That is until Rome walks into a bar one night and he can’t think of anything else ….ever.

The journey that we go on with both of these characters is a tough one. They have their haunted and tortured pasts that have made them into the people that they are today, with walls up, a need for control and independence yet still with so much passion to give that even they don’t know it.

Cal is an interesting guy – he’s the premier humanitarian worker in the city, prob further reaching than that, but that’s his public persona. He and his brother also own one of the most elite BDSM clubs in the city and that’s where his tastes edge to the darker side. This however is something that may become a challenge now that he’s obsessed with Rome.

Rome on the other hand is a woman who’s got this innocent quality but she’s also so powerful and can own a room when she walks into it. She’s a mystery sine Cal isn’t able to pull any background information on her, but he’s able to find that she’s also in the same humanitarian category as he is with her own company that’s doing quite well.

When they cross paths in a bar, their lives are changed forever but they don’t both know it yet. It’s not until they cross paths at a charity gala that things really take a turn. The story from here is intense, it’s hot and it’s filled with so many secrets that you want to uncover them all even in between all the chemistry and passion that they share.

Rome makes him wait, Cal gives her control, and all the while, they are keeping major bits of information from each other that will likely impact their future…if there is one. I can’t wait to dive into the next book now! Enjoy
