Quentin Doucet left New Orleans, along with his responsibilities of the BDSM club, Plaisir, he is the half owner, along with Brody, after the death of his girlfriend and submissive, Beth. Brody’s accident that has his laid up in the hospital has forced Quentin back, and he will have to face many demons during his return. Grace is in town displaying her erotic art and jewelry and staying with Brody’s fiancé Laurie. The chemistry between Quentin and Grace starts off rocky but escalates to erotic quickly.
The plot of this story is full of mystery, suspense, a cold murder case, submissive training classes at Plaisir, the art world, judgmental people, and the world of dominant and submissive. Dominant Quentin Doucet is known for creating leather pieces used in the BDSM clubs, and by D/s couples, he has a love for his vintage motorcycles and even more for a woman who willing gives her submission. What Quentin was not expecting was a sassy little redhead showing up at his class on submission and turning his world upside down. Grace had contemplated taking the submission class at Plaisir and did not tell Laurie that she had actually signed up. As Grace and the other submissive women learn different poses and experience more of what the lifestyle offers, it takes the reader on a journey with them. Brody and Quentin are still working to try and uncover who was responsible for the death of Beth and recreate a list of that night with the help of the lead detective and using a private investigator. There are many intense moments as the mystery starts to unravel and more nefarious information comes to light. There is a great cast of characters, with witty and entertaining dialog. The scenes in and out of the club are well described, erotic, fulfilling, hot, worthy of an award, and sexy as hell.
I adored Quentin, he was super yummy, dominant, sexy, hot- and he had that wonderful dark past.
Grace was wonderful. I loved watching her work her way through her desire to be a submissive, and really learned a lot from the dialog between her and her friend.
There was also a good mystery and fun twist at the end.
I loved the chemistry, the dominance and submission, the sex, good Lord, the spankings!!!
The whole thing was great, and I can't read to read the next one.
Maggie Ryan always creates a great story!
The author has built an outstanding array of supporting characters. But due to the fantastic character development of the supporting cast, I expected to find at least one previous book using these characters but didn't see one (so much was happening with the supporting characters that I felt like I was reading book 2 or 3 in a series and was looking for Brody/Laurie and Dave/Jen).
The story itself has a little bit of everything - mystery, BDSM, murder, love, and a plot twist. I read it straight through and could not put it down. There were a couple of dangling threads (Connor and David Brooks) that I would like to have clean clipped and tidied up but it didn't distract from the story. Overall a very entertaining read and well worth it (whether for purchase or borrow with KU).
Quentin meets Grace through good friends and is immediately drawn to her even though he tries to push her away. They continue to be thrown together and can't deny their attraction. Once Quentin finally decides he is ready to move on & pursue things with Grace, the killer resurfaces... There were great twists and turns, and the killer is a total surprise!
Every chapter was well written and I felt as though I was right in the story with everyone. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading until the end. And when I reached the end, although happy for Quentin and Grace, it left me wanting for more Quentin and Grace.
I am looking forward to many more reads by Ms Ryan and will recommend this book as a 5+star read.
Quentin was a Dom, and trying to find his way back. Grace was an artist who was thrown together with Quentin by her best friend Laurie. It was a great book and I would definitely recommend.
Some books i describe as a great primer into the world of bdsm.
For this book i would have to say all those things. It was wonderful. The characters were very real and i truly hope and pray we learn more about them in a future book.
Miss Ryan is an amazing author and this contemporary book is just as wonderful as her historicals
