He’s a famous rock star…and an irresistible Dom. She might be his submissive but she’ll be damned if she’s going to let him think he’s better than her.

Evie Lloyd was heartbroken when an injury ended her promising career as a ballet dancer. But now she’s ready to step back out into the world and maybe even explore her needs as a submissive. When her best friend, Christina, invites her to the popular BDSM club Dominion, she accepts in the hope that she might find someone to give her the spanking she’s been craving for so long.

At Dominion Evie gets more than she bargained for when she meets Aaron Holmes, the lead guitarist of Decadence, one of the most successful rock groups in the world. Aaron is everything she wants in a Dom and his firm discipline soon has her quivering on her knees. But she knows that people like him don’t normally mix with nobodies like her so she resolves to enjoy the kink until he tires of her without getting emotionally involved. It seems that Aaron can’t get enough of her, though, and Evie soon finds it harder to resist her growing feelings for him.


Review:  Hot rock stars typically don’t mess around with simple shopkeepers, but the BDSM club Dominion has a way of creating a level playing field.

In Behind the Scenes, author Katy Swann provides a look into the world of kink as Evie and Aaron explore their shared passion for Dominance and submission.

In addition to the intense scenes between the two major characters, there’s also a bit of drama surrounding a threat to Aaron’s band. While Evie is convinced that her interaction with Aaron can never be permanent, he’s determined to give her a front row seat.

Although this is the second book in a series, I had no problems with reading it as a standalone. It definitely made me want to read more, especially to find out what happens to Christina and Marco.

From a BDSM standpoint, I found the interaction to be realistic. I was especially impressed with Aaron’s level of communication with Evie regarding his respect of a submissive’s limits.
