Morgan O’Malley has seen a lot of kinky things as the hostess of a cable sex talk show. But she’s never met a man like Jack Cole before. A self-proclaimed dominant, he’s as alpha as a male can get–and good for Morgan to have around when an obsessed stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her.
Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what’s more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it–and starts to crave his masterful touch. A willing player in Jack’s games, Morgan knows that his motives aren't pure, but she has no idea how personal they are…
Morgan has a fantastic job as the host of a late night cable TV show called “Turn Me On” which explores various facets of sexual life. Her show is based in L.A., but she travels around the country filming her segments. Her own sex life has hit a dry spell…not so fantastic. However, she’s too busy trying to avoid a stalker who keeps mailing her photos with rose petals and notes. It hasn’t been threatening enough for the Police to do anything about it. In an attempt to feel safer, she moves in with her half-brother Brandon in Houston so that she will have a protective man around. They decide to pose as an engaged couple so that it won’t be so odd to always have him around. (Hardly anyone knows of their familial relation). Brandon, however, has to go of the country for work.
Morgan’s latest TV show assignment will be on Dominance and Submission, and she is going to interview ‘Master J’, a known dominant. She first messages him on the computer and then arranges to meet him at a café. When she arrives in a disguise (hoping that the stalker won’t be following) she immediately finds him very attractive and their talk is arousing. She tries to maintain her professionalism however. Then all hell breaks loose as gunshots ring out! Master J, aka Jack, is a security consultant, and he reflexively grabs Morgan and shields her under the table, saving her life. He then gets them both out of there and takes her to a strip club where he gets her into another disguise (as a stripper with a blond wig and high boots) and when she’s changing, he walks in on her, and they share a steamy kiss, and both become very aroused.
Then Jack takes her to his remote Louisiana bayou cabin, where Jack would be able to notice a stalker if one were following them. Jack has reasons for initiating an affair with her and he finds himself more aroused by her than he ever expected, as Morgan is the embodiment of his dreams, which always featured a beautiful redhead.
The erotic tension is extremely high and the sex between them is explosive. Both of them can’t keep their hands off each other and she finds herself being his submissive, begging him to fulfill her desires and he does so over and over again. Morgan submits by calling him “sir” when they are making love. There are many erotic scenes that are very descriptive and smoking hot! About 1/3 of the book is descriptive erotic scenes. There is some mild bondage and other BDSM play, and there is a ménage MFM, which is actually one of the hottest erotic scenes.
However, dangerous reality bursts into their idyllic sensual haze, and Jack’s motivations for getting involved with Morgan cause her to recoil and withdraw from him. Jack has to weigh his feelings for Morgan against his motivation for revenge. Morgan has fallen in love with him but she is frightened by him, not knowing if she can trust him now.
This is a very well-written erotic romance with suspense, and it would be very enjoyable for fans of erotic romance. I would recommend listening to it over several days or longer so that the erotic scenes are more spaced out, since there are many!
The narrator did an amazing job, and used different voices for the characters well, keeping the dialogue distinct. At first, I didn’t like the voice for Jack but then I realized she was talking in a french-louisiana accent!
