Nathaniel and Abby are struggling to navigate the challenging waters of their own relationship, when they get a surprising phone call from their partners in play, Dena and Jeff, who are in need of a helping hand…
Seven years ago, blonde, beautiful lawyer Dena Jenkins was tired of her carefully controlled life. Desperate for something exhilarating to help her escape the pressures of her demanding job and her senator father, she joined a steamy, local BDSM club as a submissive. There she met brooding Dominant, Jeff. The attraction between them was undeniable, and, despite Dena’s doubts, they couldn’t stay away from each other.
Except, as the years have passed, their blazing connection has proven difficult to maintain. Dena and Jeff have a history they’d rather forget, but Dena can’t let go of the past, and Jeff is ready to move across the country to give her space. Now, to save their passion, they’ll have to rediscover what it means to trust each other—and give themselves to each other completely…
Review by pearls
They've already tried and failed at a relationship, but when a stalker leads her to hire his security company, they are once again forced into close quarters. There is a lot of pain and guilt between them, and they must decide whether to work it out or say goodbye for good. The source of which is something too many couples must face. Through a series of flashbacks, the author takes us through the good and the bad of their history as each deals with the memories flooding them. The novel is a dance around emotions and memories as they find their love and desire for one another resurfacing. But will it be enough to move forward together? And don't forget about that pesky stalker of hers....I love character driven novels, and this one hits close to my heart. Tara Sue Me treated the issue and her characters with respect as they fought their own demons to rebuild their life together.
After completing several clean romances, she decided to try her hand at something spicier and started The Submissive. What began as a writing exercise quickly took on a life of its own and The Dominant and The Training soon followed. An avid reader of all types of fiction, she soon discovered she enjoyed writing a variety as well.
Tara lives in the Southeastern United States with her husband, two children, two dogs, and a cat.
