Treat herself to a carnal weekend at the hedonistic retreat, XTC Resorts? That’s not something Claire Calderwood, a three-time loser in the relationship department, would ordinarily do. But at forty-one, having a successful cleaning business is no longer enough. She wants a chance to let go of all responsibility, submit to a stranger’s sexual demands and satisfy her darkest fantasies.
Jonathon Brierton has known his best friend’s sister long enough to recognize her submissive nature. He would like nothing more than to have Claire bound naked and at the mercy of his flogger as he teaches her the sensual art of obeying her Master. At thirty-something, he’s a successful real estate developer, owner of a BDSM resort—and hopelessly in love with the older woman.
When Claire follows him to his resort, Jonathon is certain he can keep his identity secret long enough to convince her that being restrained in his stocks is something that will satisfy them both. But lies, deceit and broken hearts may not be so easy to overcome.
After her latest relationship ends, Claire finds herself at a BDSM resort for a mini vacation. Her good friend Jonathon has talked himself along. Little does she know that he has a specific reason in mind for wanting to join her. On her first night at the resort Claire meets Master Xavier and she lets herself go, losing not only her inhibitions but her heart as well.
I enjoyed this book right from the start. Claire is a strong woman who can stand on her own. Yet as a submissive she decides to give up control to her Master. Whether he is Master or just plain Jonathon he is a wonderful man who will do anything for love, including keeping a secret from Claire and hoping that, when he reveals it, his heart is not torn out. Watching the two together makes for one hot read. Claire blossoms as a submissive and the love that grows between the two is wonderful.
Seeing Claire find herself was very interesting. She not only watches public scenes but she also tries BDSM herself for the first time while at this resort. As Jonathon fights for her love, he only hopes that his deception will end in the way he wants, with Claire’s heart. The two are a great couple and the deep love that Jonathon has for Claire had me hoping that she would see the man that he is.
The only thing that I will mention is that this is definitely a BDSM book and readers who are easily offended might want to be careful. It includes some play and sex scenes that were very intense and very hot! I enjoyed this book so much and was happy to see the love and trust between the characters. Nina Pierce does a wonderful job of pulling the reader in and keeping you glued to the pages. I will definitely be on the look out for more of this author's books in the future.
