Review by Mistletoe
Valentine Nichols wants two things for her birthday—for Shane Daniels to notice her, and a taste of the wild D/s sex scene she’s been longing to experience. When she sees Shane at the local BDSM club, she hatches a plan to have both and convinces Shane to give her lessons in submission.
Shane Daniels has wanted Valentine for years but as his best friend’s little sister, she’s strictly off-limits. But when Valentine talks him into giving her D/s lessons, he gives in to some of his darker urges and dominates her sexually.
Now they are locked in a battle of wills as Valentine pushes him for a consummation of their new relationship while Shane tries to keep himself from taking her completely. Who will win? They’ll both find out when Valentine takes her spanking.
Valentine Nichols has had a crush on her brother’s best friend since she first saw him years ago. Since then her school girl-crush has grown into something more and when Valentine sees Shane Daniels at the BDSM club Black and Blue, she finds a way to make her fantasies come true. Her interest in the BDSM scene brought her to the club and when she finds out that Shane lives in the lifestyle, Valentine makes her move. Valentine has come to love Shane but will he ever see her as more than a little sister? Can she show him the woman she is and the love that they can share?
This book had me from the very first page. Valentine is a smart and strong woman who is not afraid to go after what she wants. Something I really admire in a heroine. Shane is a wonderful hero who can be the Dom as well as the friend Valentine needs. A great hero that anyone could fall for. The roller coaster of emotions that these two go through is a great read. Shane wants Valentine as much as she wants him but he believes she is off limits.
Evangeline Anderson writes an endearing story with characters full of emotion and inner struggles. Once Shane stops fighting his feelings the relationship that develops between him and Valentine is a beautiful one that I loved to read. Not only does he push Valentine's limits but she pushes Shane’s limits as well. This tale is filled with great scenes like the one where Shane finally realizes he loves Valentine or the hot scene where he claims her with not only his body but also his heart. This book is not to be missed. If you enjoy a love story with some kink to it this is a story for you.
