Angie Davidson finds herself at loose ends after her best friend’s wedding and in need of a vacation, so when sexy yet aloof co-owner of the Quick Silver Ranch, Jared Turner, insists she stay to explore their sexual attraction, she agrees. Though she loves being a submissive in the bedroom, Jared’s distant air after lovemaking brings back bad memories. Can she show this strong sexy man he has nothing to fear from her, or will he abandon her like everyone else in her life has?

Sexy yet aloof Jared, co-owner of the Quick Silver Ranch is eager to explore Angie’s submissive side with two weeks of toys and other naughty play. However, the last time he was this attracted to a woman—mentally and phyiscally—she wasn’t able to put up with his Dominant streak. Can Angie see that her vacation with him can be the perfect way of life?


Review: After reading book one of the Quick Silver Ranch series I was very excited to learn that book two was Jared’s story and even more excited to hear it was actually about Jared and Angie. It is not necessary to read book one as the author does a good job of making this book stand on its own. However, since we do meet Jared, we learn about some of Angie’s background and just because it’s good, I recommend it!

Both characters have vulnerabilities which the author describes very well and the emotions they are feeling because of these vulnerabilities are very evident throughout. Angie is afraid of being abandoned and Jared is worried about getting close to avoid getting hurt since every woman in his past has walked away from him as well.

I enjoyed the interaction between both Jared and Angie while working side by side and would have liked to have seen more of this side of their relationship. I realize the dom/sub portrayal was important since this was a main component of Jared’s character however it seemed to become a bit repetitive.

This was a good, enjoyable erotica novel. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
