Mathieu is one HOT detective! Old college friend Lisette is a damsel in distress. Sparks fly off these two like Fourth of July fireworks. They have both grown up since they knew each other in college, and developed some – um – kinks. While they are getting to know each other again, and exploring all these new possibilities, someone is stalking Lisette.
This is a story with nail biting suspense, heart stopping action, and be still my heart sex scenes. You won’t want to miss it.
But wait there is more! We are gifted with an additional short story that features Odalia and Jacques from Picture Her Bound that is just as exciting.
You really won’t want to miss this one. Turns out to be a two-fer in wonderful New Orleans that, in my opinion, is a must read!
What do you do when your ex is a government trained assassin who refuses to let you go? Lisette ran from Florida to friends in Chicago, where Seth found her and put her in the hospital. She then ran to New Orleans, her home town, and the home of her college boyfriend, Mathieu, now a detective with the NOPD. She asks him for help, but Mathieu is still reeling from his divorce from a needy, manipulative woman. Pictures and a brutal scar convince him Lisette is at least telling the truth about the abuse and needs his protection. But Mathieu needs more than her word about Seth and as he begins to dig, bodies of blondes begin to appear around N.O., blondes like Lisette. And it becomes obvious they have not one but two serials at large. Because brunette teens are also disappearing from the streets without a trace.
Lisette was in love with Mathieu when he broke things off her freshman year of college. She learns eight years later it wasn't because of the differences in their backgrounds, but because she was an innocent and he had a hidden "dark side". What he is about to learn is that she was introduced to BDSM shortly after he broke up with her and that she is a natural submissive to his natural Dom. All the rules he puts in place to keep his walls up and his heart safe as they play are soon crumbling, while Seth is simultaneously watching and waiting for the opportunity to catch her alone and forever take what's 'his'.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
Sydney's a prolific author and yet I found I'd only read one of her books before, so thought it was time for book two...I love erotic romance, so this seemed a good choice.
Well, it was a decent read but not a great one for me. I liked the romance pick up from the past, but I felt they seemed to flow into it very quickly – I need a bit more angst, a bit more “should I / shouldn't I” sort of self questioning. Still, they were a good match, and I wondered exactly why they split in the first place? There were reasons given, but I didn't feel they really matched the people I met – maybe they were different before, after all it was several years ago. I loved Matthieu, a real charmer, and yet not a playboy type but someone solid and dependable. You know when he says he'll protect her that he will, whatever his personal feelings...and then oif course there's that New Orleans aura and accent....;-) Lisette, a fun girl and I understood how she felt when her family abandoned her, thought she was mentally incapable just because she liked some kink. The blog though.....it took up a lot of space, when I only saw it as a vehicle for a couple of links...I skipped lots of it, it just seemed like Lisettes...ramblings? IMO only of course! Then there's the ex, what a piece of work he was.
So its a great scenario and yet, for me Lisette didn't really work, I didn't dislike her but didn't really feel connected to her. The sex/kink scenes between her and Matthieu weren't really tantalising for me, I just didn't really get that feeling of sensuality, seduction, erotisism I expected, didn't feel the sexual tension between them, even though it was ( supposed to be ) there. Her actions too – staying with somone you'd think she'd have been more polite than to pry among his clearly secret BDSM stuff.....thats just rude, and then to tell him she'd been poking around too! The ex – clearly he had some surreptious help from the top, but that really stayed a mystery. I felt a bit more build up between Lisette and Matthieu, and more info on the ex and his actions would have helped for me. For instance when he appears in Matthieu's office, having bypassed all security checks I wanted to know how – but that stayed blank...
Overall its a fun read, and will work well for lots of people but didn't really float my boat.
