Evelyn Morgan has a secret. Donavan Carver wants to expose it. Bondage, debauchery, and a weekend at Eden lands one of them on their knees.

For years, Eve has craved sexual domination, but a kinky romp in the hay isn’t worth destroying her prestigious legal reputation over. Even if that romp’s with her handsome rival and legendary Dominant, Donavan Carver. Desperate to protect her secret and keep the notorious playboy at bay, Eve clings to the lie she’s told for two years–she’s a Domme. Donavan doesn’t buy it. Given an opportunity to put Donavan’s doubts to rest, Eve lures him into a bet he can’t win–one that will tether him to her leash. So what if she cheats to win? He’ll never find out. Or will he?


Review:  OK everyone, I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed this book! It was really, really good. I enjoyed both Eve and Donavan as they were both likable and they each had their own strengths and weaknesses that drew me in and I cheered for them and wanted to know what would happen next. I liked Eve because I could see and feel her vulnerability and yet she was strong as well; she wasn’t weak and making stupid decisions that would make me shake my head. Her weakness made her likable as well as she discovered herself throughout the book.

I liked Donavan as well. He was arrogant and dominant but there was a tenderness and compassionate man beneath all of that dominance that truly made up the man and I really liked those qualities his character possessed. I thought that the dude that posed for the picture on the front cover didn’t do that Donavan justice. My own imagination created what I thought Donavan should look like and it was so much better then the cover model — at least in my humble opinion.

I really liked how they were both vulnerable at the end of the story and even though both were hurting they each tried to reach out to each other in their own ways. It was a great ending… just HAVE to read it. It was funny and sharp and it kept me entertained, I didn’t want it to end and was really disappointed when it did, even though I was satisfied with the ending. I hope if you do read it you enjoy thoroughly as well!
