I am not new to the genre and am typically a fan of Shayla Black and Jenna Jacob but this was a big flop of a book. Glad it was a free kindle read and I hadn't spent my hard earned money.
Raine has lived Macen "Hammer" ever since he rescued her when she was homeless when she was 17 years old. He gave her a home, a job, and made sure she went to college. The one thing that he refuses to do is give in to their attraction.
Hamner's loved her from afar, but he's a Dom with a past that has scars. So he refuses to look at Raine like the beautiful, sexy woman she is a treat her like a child.
She's a Sub in need of love and training that he refuses to acknowledge until his best friend, Liam, offers to train her in order to get Hamner to see the beauty she is through his jealousy and possessive streak. But Liam never expected to fall for her himself.
When Hammer's punishment gets out of control, their friendship gets severed and Raine leaves with Liam. That's when Hammer realizes that he can't live without her.
A must read!
Raine's been in love with Macen Hammerman ,her boss for years but he doesn’t feel that way about her. He lusts for her , because he cant give her his love , he can only give her lust not love. So he continually rejects her and instead he flaunts his other lovers in her face and in so many ways, takes her submission as his right even though he isn’t making her his Sub. Well, Liam doesn’t like how things are going and sees how pain Raine is in. Liam who is Hammer's bestfriend takes over and helps Raine-why you ask? He is in love with Raine. But alas, when Raine lets loose and decides to find out how to get Hammer, be careful what you ask for. Liam ends up being that help and she ends up his Sub. Things happen where Hammer finds out and you guess it, she ends up the tasty morsel between the two men. The three of them made such an powerhouse group- think love triangles and angst ridden thoughts here. Hammer and tempers, Liam and his love and Raine and her mass confusion over who she loves more. Oh this story definitely went thru many many twists and turns. The ending left on a cliff hanger. What happens next. We pick that up on book 2.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****
Three people and so many complications! I love the fire between Raine and both of these men. My heart hurts for all of them because of too much pain and too many unsaid words.
The ending was magnificent and so heartbreaking at the same time. Shayla, Jenna, and Isabella are weaving a gripping story that can only get better and worse and more blazing before it is through.
In order for me to enjoy a story, there has to be one character who acts like a real human being. It’s a bad sign that in this book, it’s the club sadist Beck who seems the most sensible. Yes, he’s an a-hole, but his sneering contempt for all of these people is the sanest, most relatable thing in the book.

I started with the prequel, learning about Raine, how she ended up at Hammers Club, I have to admit his behavior and actions were very puzzling.
Everyone could see how Rained felt about him, even Macen (Hammer) could see it, she was a sweet girl with plenty of love to give along with lots of sass.
I liked Hammers friend Liam, it seems there is more to him then we've seen so far.
We join One Dom to Love where the prequel ended, with Liam going to Macen's club in Los Angeles.
Liam could see how much Macen felt for the raven haired beauty that is Raine.
It became apparent, that Liam begins to have feelings for Raine too, and as his friend is probably the only one who will tell him the truth, Macen doesn't want to hear.
I felt Raine was a bot of a pawn between the two men and after seeing Macy with another sub, it pushes her to make a final stand to get her man, and tried she did. He was quite barbaric with dishing out her punishment, at the hands of the biggest pan giver Beck.
Liam disagrees with the choice of punishment, and gives Raine a way out, but she is a proud tough stubborn lady and will not give anyone the satisfaction of breaking her.
I loved how gentle Liam was after Raine realised she was only going to be hurting for longer, with the punishment. She took Liam's way out.
The cracks in Liam and Macen's friendship started to appear , especially after Raine goes to Macen once more.
I must admit the bedroom scenes were smoking hot, definitely panty melting and although she was wrong, it was a night of unbridled passion and even after Liam finding Macen and Raine together he is a very patient man - although not without a temper.
I was torn between the two Doms, wanting them both to succeed to win Raines heart, and after learning all their stories they all have been keeping secrets.
Is Liam goading Macen, yes he is. Is Liam the better man, so far he has proved that he is.
The rest of their story is going to be very intriguing.
I wasn't sure at first if this was going to be my cup of tea but I quickly changed my mind.
Raine lives and works at Shadows a BDSM club owned by Macen "Hammer" Hammerstein. She has had the hots for Hammer for years. He has feelings for her but won't give in to them. Then Liam his best friend enters the picture and the story takes off as emotions are pulled all over the place and each person's actions has an impact on all three of their lives.
The characters are all believable and the men pretty sexy even when doing less than honourable things. The sex scenes are well written and erotically hot, and they are also integral to the story not just add ins. A great start to a series that will unfold the whole story arc. This is not a stand alone story so to get the whole story the whole series will need to be read.
The day started bad for Raine Kendall and despite her determination never to let it happen again she knew she was going to have her heart broken by Macen Hammerman - again! Despite knowing him for a number of years he refused to acknowledge her as a woman. For him she was still the little girl he had rescued in the alley behind his club. He took her in, educated her and nurtured her but still treated her like a 15 year old.
Raine is a sensual woman who deeply loves him but as woman and not as the child he still believes she is. She decides to try once more and throws herself at Macen only to be humiliated and crushingly rejected by him again.
Enter Liam O'Connell, Macen's close friend. Liam watches his friends rejection of Raine and decided to step in and play a game with Macen. Make him jealous and help him to recognise Raine as a woman - that was the plan but what Liam didn't reckon for was falling for Raine himself.
There were aspects of this story that I liked. Raine was feisty and it was good to see this when she dealt with Macen and his churlish behaviour. Macen blew too hot and cold for me and despite thinking he had Raine's best interests at heart he was a totally selfish, insensitive and at time a cruel dominant that didn't appear to know his own mind.
Liam's handling of Raine was good. He showed her what it could be like to submit to him, he was sensitive and loving but also very dominant.
The book lost a number of stars because once again we are left with the usual cliff hanger and yes it is a trilogy. It it is also a very predicatble story finishing at 94% with the remaining 6% dedicated to the authors and excerpts from other stories.
Please - could authors (or the publishers) make it clear to the reader that it is the first book of 3 or even the fact that it is going to be a trilogy? Trilogies have become my pet irritation now particularly those that take forever to be released. The flow of the story just gets lost by this type of writing.
So do you think that Raine wil give up on Macen and give her heart, body and soul to Liam? Or do you think Macen will heal his demons and give into his lust for Raine and try to claim her from Liam or will Raine give her heart, body and sould to Liam?
If you want to find out then this trilogy may be for you. Book 2 is due to be released in 2013. No date given.
Raine has now grown into a beautiful sensual woman who passionately loves Macen, as a woman - not a child. He refuses to see her that way even after she completely humiliates herself literally throwing herself at him. Macen decides to punish Raine (yes, for loving him and being understandably destroyed when he brushes her off yet again) and gives her to a hard-core sadist to be admonished. Macen's closest friend Liam is staying at the club, he is attracted to Raine and see's her potential as a submissive so he propositions her to train with him. Whilst Liam secretly hopes it will make his friend jealous, he is there at Raine's punishment and stops it going to far - taking Raine to begin her training.
Anyhow, both boys end up wanting Raine and they end up scrapping over her. She is pulled in both directions as her fondness for Liam grows under his tutelage.
This story lost a star because of Macen - I just struggled to like him at all. He owns a BDSM club for God's sake, he professes to have Raine's best interests at heart but he is so uncontrollably emotive and cruel. Yes, I know he has 'issues' but this is no excuse for his behaviour, as a Dom he is despicable and as a man he's an insensitive ass! Also, a cliff-hanger, although the major part of the story was concluded so I was ok with that.
I liked how fiery Raine is, she is courageous and tough and I adored Liam's handling of her and his cherishing her.
I did really enjoy the story but even with three very talented authors, the quality of 'Cherise Sinclair's' books this is not.
Raine is just awesome, strong and independent but with the submissive side I have a fondness for.
Overall, 5* and looking forward to reading part two to see if Hammer redeems himself.
