Book Description

She didn’t know what she wanted…


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.


Until he made her beg for it.


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…

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Klovers! Courtesy of CK2S Kwips & Kritiques January 2, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Morgan O'Malley is running - both from her own secret desires and a dangerous stalker. Leaving California for Texas seemed the perfect solution to hiding from the man stalking her. But when he finds her at a lunch meeting with Jack Cole, her dangerous stalker turns absolutely lethal.

Jack Cole has waited years for his revenge, and the perfect opportunity finally arrives in the form of the beautiful Morgan when he meets with her to discuss BDSM for an episode of her sex talk show. Jack, a Dom, instantly recognizes the unrealized submissive lurking within Morgan, and determines to make her realize her every fantasy - with him, destroying her engagement to his long-time enemy in the process. When Morgan is attacked, Jack promptly appoints himself her bodyguard, determining to protect her and have his revenge all at once.

As Jack and Morgan open up to each other, they begin to fall in love. But will their needs prove more dangerous to their love than the stalker?

With the first excerpt I read for Shayla Black's novel, Wicked Ties, I was hooked. Although not typically into BDSM plots, the excerpts Shayla Black has posted on her website and blog stirred an interest in me that was undeniable. I was therefore understandably excited at the opportunity to review Wicked Ties. The book did NOT disappoint - in any way.

As I mentioned, this book has a heavy BDSM theme, although it never seems `in your face' hard core BDSM like some other novels. Make no mistake, Jack Cole is as dominant as Morgan O'Malley is submissive, but the author's approach to these scenes makes BDSM palatable to most readers. While the love scenes are explicit and plentiful, the scenes never include acts of degradation.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Erotic Romance!! June 21, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was awesome. I stayed up till three in the morning just to finish it. I could not get enough of Jack and Morgan. The book starts off with Morgan, who is a successful businesswoman with a talk show that deals with sex. But soon we see that she is running scared, literally. She even moves to another state to get away from the stalker, but we see that he soon follows. And with all this, she still has a talk show to run. Her latest topic is BDsm. So she goes to meet Jack, a Dominant who she met online in hopes of getting more information on the lifestyle.

Jack has a plan, and it seems to be working out perfectly. He has arranged to get a meeting with his ex friends finance' in hopes of getting revenge. He plans to seduce Morgan, and then shove the affair in his ex friends face. Then he feels his revenge will be complete. But as they get five minutes into their meeting the stalker open fires on them at a cafe, and Jack literally drags her into safety. That is afterall his specialty, being in the military and now a bodygaurd, protecting someone is second nature to him. Jack quickly decides that protecting Morgan untill the stalker is caught is the perfect way to get close to her and to finally seduce her.

Morgan is reluctant and suspicious at first, but finally agrees to accept his help. So Jack quickly takes her out of the city and into the back woods of Louisana to his secluded cabin. This is where things spice up in the story quick. Morgan is undeniably attracted to Jack. He is tall, dark, has a body to die for, and the charm and confidence to melt any female. And Jack quickly discovers that she is the woman he has been having dreams about for months now. He also sees the perfect submissive in her, if only she will admit it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Ties May 1, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Morgan O'Malley hosts a sex talk show in Los Angeles called Turn Me On, and for one of her upcoming shows, she wants to interview an experienced dominant. She agrees to meet Master J in Lafayette to learn all she can about a dominant/submissive relationship while she is visiting her brother Brandon in Houston. Morgan almost falls over her tongue when she is first introduced to Jack Cole because he is sexily built, and heart stopping gorgeous. Jack likes what he sees in Morgan, but wonders why she has covered herself up to the point he can barely see her under the disguise. He doesn't have to wonder long because only after a few minutes of conversation, a waiter delivers a package to Morgan that obviously petrifies her. She hastily gets up explaining she must leave immediately, but before he can question her further, gunfire erupts. Since Jack is a security specialist, his first instinct is to protect Morgan, and he manages to get her to the only place insured safe, his cabin in the surrounding swampland.

Morgan relates the problems she has encountered with a stalker to Jack who in turn asks his partner Deke to investigate. Realizing this is serious, Morgan agrees to let Jack keep her hidden, and under his protection. She also agrees to let him show her how the dom/sub relationship works while they are together. Jack can see that Morgan has trust issues because she is unable to fully submit to him, but he hopes introducing her slowly to the lifestyle, trust will come. Morgan has always been told her deepest fantasies were wrong, but can't deny the explosive passion Jack brings out in her. Can they overcome her stalker, and his need for revenge against an old enemy to be together?

I have found a new must buy author in Shayla Black! This book is well written with intense likable characters. An emotional thrilling read that has a perfect balance between story and eroticism.

A good, quick read, with some okay scenes. The motivations, and behaviour of major characters was suspect and I had a hard time getting past that to get back into the story line.
