When Lacey loses control of her vehicle and finds herself trapped by ice and snow, she knows there’s only one person to call for help. Unfortunately, Michael may cause more turmoil than relief. She’s lusted for the gorgeous Dom ever since she first laid eyes on him. Trouble is, he doesn’t do vanilla and she’s not a submissive…or is she?

Michael’s hungered for Lacey for months, so when he notices her fleeting glimpses and blush-stained cheeks as rescues her from an altercation with a guardrail, he decides it’s time to push the sultry beauty’s boundaries…only to discover Lacey’s not as reserved as she thinks.

Physical attraction blossoms into something neither anticipates, taking Michael and Lacey beyond kink, dominance and submission. Their newfound connection is strong. Until a flame from Michael’s past returns, shatters the fragile trust he and Lacey have only just developed and threatens to destroy something neither wants to surrender.


Review: I want to say that I really enjoyed Make Me Shiver and I learned some new things along the way.

Lacey is on her way back from catching her boyfriend with another woman. The roads are in bad condition so she runs off the road and calls Michael to come get her. He takes her to his house and he warns her about the room in the basement. After she is caught there that’s when the story starts taking on a mind of it’s own.

When I started reading I never knew that I would be entering a world that I really knew nothing about. I have heard about it but until I read this book I had never understood the whole BDSM thing.

To be able to go into this world you have to have full trust in each other and totally put yourself in their hands. It was very exciting learning about things that I knew nothing about. I don’t know if I could ever trust someone as much as you need to for this kind of relationship.

I would have to trust that they would never do anything that I didn’t like. Watching Lacey and Michael and everything that had to happen to build all the trust and to just sit there and do everything that he said. I can appreciate things better. I could tell that they both loved each other.

Lacey had to move past her upbringing and trust that she got to make her own decisions about her sex life. She had to also put all jealousy aside and trust that the man she loved would never harm her. Michael had to take it easy with Lacey because she wasn’t used to his lifestyle.

I know feel like I have better knowledge about BDSM. I find it exciting and don’t know if I could really see myself doing it. I believe that this is the best way to start a series and that the author did a wonderful job on the information that was given. I can’t wait to read the next book and see what other information I can get.

I just want to say that this was a really hot read. The sex between Lacey and Michael was off the charts and I think it made it hotter because of their trust in each other.

Thank you so much Aline for such a wonderful book.
