This was something else. Jillian has had a crush on Leo for years. Chemical reaction when they first met, but unfortunately he's her brother's best friend so he has intentionally frozen her out. She makes a last ditch effort to get him at her brother's birthday party. She lays it on the line and he rejects her. She is very up front that this is it for her. She's moving on. Leo won't take her on as he is a sexual dominant and doesn't want any strings anyway. (Emotional damage backstory.)
Jillian is not really moving on as much as she says as she decides to make the last play of the game. She picks out the biggest player in the room and starts flirting. The new player is all over it, and they make their own connection. For good or bad, she's picked Leo's other close friend, another sexual dominant. Leo sees red as essentially she's his woman, stakes a claim, and the the game is on.
There are no whips, chains, men walking around in their leathers, etc...but Leo is more than a little kinky. He's a little scary too as he says he likes pain with his sex. There were a few moments I thought I would have to part ways with Leo and Jillian, but I kept reading. Leo's "pain" talk is more smoke than fire, but he is a pretty tightly wound hero even for a sexual dominant.
I really enjoyed the book. The characters were fresh, fun to read about and kept the idiocy in dialogue within a contemporary romance to a minimum. Neither did they fall down the rabbit hole of nauseating dialogue like I will cherish you when you give me your trust. and how the sub really has all control. BDSM authors, I'm looking at you. BDSM genre is something I have only started reading in the last year or so, and the quality and the levels of dominance and intensity vary. Talks of contracts and limits are explored in various ways. Is any of this at all related to BDSM in reality? Haven't the foggiest.
I liked the characters, weathered through the ubiquitous man runs the other way to protect his wee heart climax, and we all came out the other side. This one made me think a little more than other as the characters seemed to discuss whether this would actually work. I am definitely reading the other books.
Rather than let the chemistry between the characters lead, it reads more of an introduction into domination. This would have been fine if it did not take up so much of the story. It was more like reading an instruction manual in the dark than it was steamy romance. Leo does not explain anything properly to Jillian because he is afraid. Instead, she has to get all her information from his best friend. Of course, this is a ploy to set up a story for the friend. Leo needed to take control of the story as that is his role.
With a little work, this could be great. The first story is definitely better. Sinful felt rushed and a bit forced. It did not have the flow that a good story needs. It was clunky.
Leo is a dominant and his best friend is very aware of this fact. I also loved how when Leo did decide to act on his feeling and desires, he was up front and honest with his best friend. Let me tell, a guy standing up for his girl and what he wants - I was in love!
So instead of this story being about sneaking around and fighting feelings it was more about them together. Leo and Jillian still have issues and have things to overcome, but they also were up front and open. My only issue with this story was the very end. There was a minor hiccup that really contradicted what I loved about Leo, but it was overcame so quickly I was still easily in love!
This book is smoking hot, like for real, super, super hot. It’s also a brother’s best friend book. It’s also romantic and swoon worthy. So yes, I absolutely recommend! This is my first book by Jennifer Dawson, and it definitely won't be my last.
