Football star Tycen Preston has everything he could want, everything but the healing release of subspace that he desperately needs. After four years of searching for the right woman, he finally has the opportunity to indulge in all the dark, forbidden desires that would ruin his carefully crafted image if anyone ever found out.

Lara Hernandez is tired of the weak submissive men that offer her no challenge. She yearns for a strong Alpha male to tame and call her own. A blind date arranged by the mysterious Madam Eve seems to be the perfect arrangement for fulfilling both of their decadent cravings. Unfortunately a scheming paparazzi photographer is hot on their trail, and will do anything he can to get a scandalous picture of Tycen that would destroy his career.


Review: Tycen Preston is this big time football player who recently lost his wife. He secretly enjoys being a submissive in the bedroom but doesn’t want anyone to find out as he’s afraid it will hurt his career. His friend recommended a escort service that has dom’s that are discrete and professional and won’t blow the whistle on Tycen and his preferences. Lara Perez is the dom from the escort service and is what Tycen is looking for in a life partner. Tycen is the perfect sub Lara wants and needs in her life. Things are really looking good, until this smarmy photographer schemes to take a picture of Tycen and his lady and has plans of ruining Tycen’s career. You’ll have to read the story to find out what happens.

I liked Tycen and Lara. Tycen was wounded emotionally and really struggling to find a woman that really “got” him. He had to worry about his career and his right to privacy that being famous took away from him. Lara, at first she seems to hard and harsh and someone who doesn’t have any feelings, someone you would believe would care less about others. You just had to look beyond that to realize that there was more to her then meets the eye. There really is a women underneath the hard and harsh who is capable of soft feelings and soft emotion. I wish you knew what happened to Tycen’s wife, but with these short stories, sometimes you have to just use your imagination and create your own conclusions!!! I have to say that these two characters really tore up the sheets in this story!!!

    Good review! I know what you mean about the short stories…lol….and this series is nothing but short stories

  2. Lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed this story, and that you gave a Fem Dom story a chance. 😉 I try to tell people that not all Domme’s are ball busting Amazon bitches who love nothing more than stepping on a man’s weiner with a pair of wicked high heels. Well, some are like that, but not all. Some Domme’s are extremely elegant. Yes, I know elegant isn’t a word we often use to describe a Dominatrix, but there are those that have an almost…regal air about them. They conduct themselves with class at all times, and bring that elegance and class to their BDSM. 😉


  3. Oh, and you see a wee bit of Lara again in the next book in this series. All my BDSM 1NS stories are related, so if you want a peek at Lara and Tyson’s life, read Sensation Play. Male Dom this time, but more of a Beauty and the Beast type story.
