At 38 years of age, Shane "Dom" Dominic has climbed rapidly up ranks of the FBI to be `Special Agent In Charge' of `Operation Serve and Protect', an investigation into the largest organized police theft ring in known history. The FBI uncovered evidence that indicates the corruption stretches back at least 10 years and involves senior officers in the Chicago Police Department.

Dom is an absolute `force of nature'. He is handsome, brilliant, driven and has an innate ability to comprehend people's motivations and to predict how they would act in a certain set of circumstances. This is one strong, enticing hero and I can say without hesitation that I fell in love with him. Dom is soon to be married to Clarissa, a smart and successful financial analyst, who has been extremely patient with his long hours and obsession with the investigation. Dom, however, is having second thoughts about his marriage to Clarissa who, in the short glimpse we are given of her, is a lovely woman.

When Dom was in his twenties he was involved in a short, very intense relationship with Laura Vasquez, a beautiful, very reserved and brilliant artist. Dom had been besotted, head over heels in love with Laura, however it ended in betrayal when she suddenly married Huey Mays, a cop and creepy slimeball ten years her senior. Laura never explained to Dom why she did it. He only knew she left him devastated. He tried hard over the years to extinguish the torch he carried for Laura. However, it continued to smolder and at times burn brightly.

Ironically, Huey was the linchpin for the FBI's continued investigation into the corruption at the Chicago Police Department. He was arrested, jailed and then makes bail. He subsequently commits suicide leaving a note.

Format: Paperback
Straight as an arrow Shane Dominic doesn't know what it is about Laura Vasquez but the woman makes him insane. She always has. Ever since she left him to marry someone else he hasn't been able to stop thinking about her or stop loving her. A Special Agent in Chicago, Shane is working on stopping a global theft ring and Laura's now deceased husband is right in the middle of the case. Laura knows more than what she is telling and Shane is having none of it. With kidnapping in mind, he whisks her away to try and get her to confide in him the only way he knows how - between the sheets and up close and personal. Add in a touch of dominance and Shane firmly believes that Laura will sing like a bird.

If Laura Vasquez has learned one thing in thirteen years of marriage, it is to keep her mouth shut. The lessons she learned so long ago are still very clear in her mind and no matter what Shane throws at her, there is no way he will ever get any information from her or out of her. Laura yearns and aches to feel Shane's strong arms around her but she doesn't want to be in a cage - she's had enough of that. She craves his dominance with a submissive nature that surprises her but she can't fully commit until she knows the danger is gone. When an unlikely suspect tries to get to her, Laura continues to hold what she knows close to her heart - a move that definitely puts her in mortal danger.

SWEET RESTRAINT will touch some buttons - it touched mine. I love to savor a well written novel containing D/s and SWEET RESTRAINT has that and so much more. The question of Shane's kidnapping Laura in order to get her to talk made me question myself for about fifteen seconds - long enough for me to read Shane's emotions.

Beth Kery has done it again. This is a sizzling HOT, erotic BDSM tale about soul mates wrapped in a suspenseful crime drama for the frame. Though circumstances have kept them apart, they relentlessly carried each other in their hearts. This is another "can not put it down" read. I certainly could have read another 200 pages of the crime story; as is the book has a lot of sex scenes. This book is about 75% erotic romance and 25% crime story. Although some of the other reviewers have provided in depth synopsis of the plot, I recommend this book.

Wow. That was an absolutely amazing story. I couldn't put it down. Riveting, suspenseful, and the sex scenes were sizzling!! I have downloaded two more of her books. This was the first time I ever read one of her books and I can assure you, it won't be my last read of hers either.

Laura Vasquez just might have found a way out of the sticky web she has been living in for the past several years. Her husband is dead and was under investigation by the FBI when it happened. Now Laura just has to find the correct person to give her the evidence she needs to finally set herself free. The only problem with this plan is that the man she turned her back on long ago is the lead agent in this investigation. Shane Dominic is now the Chicago Special Agent in Charge, but years ago he was just the man that loved and wanted to marry Laura. Shane has never understood why she married Vasquez nor why she has put up with the type of married life he understands she has had.

His investigation is stalled and Shane needs answers from Laura that she is not willing to give. Laura is doing everything she can to avoid answering Shane and ignoring the passion between them that has never gone away. When Shane believes he has nothing to lose, he decides to use the knowledge about Laura that he once thought to use for pure enjoyment. Laura is a natural submissive and Shane knows that she was forced to do things because of this. Laura can't believe when Shane takes her into the middle of nowhere and plans to dominate the truth from her. After the handcuffs, the erotic passion, danger and fantasies are over; will Shane and Laura be able to discover their future among the mistrust and misunderstandings that they each held?

One widow trying to get out from the shadow of her marriage and one spurned lover turned FBI agent discover what they missed in Sweet Restraint. Laura is relieved that her husband is gone, but is trying to get the evidence needed to let her escape the web they were in.
