Book one in the Dark Encounters Series

Be brave, you might just get what you crave…

Elizabeth Conner has secretly wanted the firm hand of a dominant man. A flyer and a friend make her step out of her comfort zone for the encounter of a life time. Is she up to exploring her wild side?

Jambrea Jo Jones has written a marvelous tour de force of one woman exploring her sexuality.

The flyer for Dark Encounters set Elli’s fantasies on high alert. When she decided to check out the club, she wasn’t sure what to expect, but she definitely wanted to shake up her dull and boring life. How better than to satisfy her curiosity about the BDSM scene, and see if it was for her?

But sitting there in the club, alone, she is ready to head for the door. That is, until Renaldo ‘Ren’ Higgins joins her at the table, and convinces her to take a tour of the club with him, no strings attached unless she chooses. As she sees the action happening in the back rooms of the club, Elli becomes drawn in, wanting to see and do so much, and Ren is more than willing to give her whatever she needs. Will these two be ships that pass in the night? Or will they find what they are looking for in each other?

This story is told in first person, and has more impact than a third person narrative would provide. I enjoyed Elli’s hesitant first glimpses of the BDSM lifestyle, and her determination to discover who she is and what she wants and needs. I liked that the characters were more mature, with some idea of what they wanted in a relationship.

Elizabeth ‘Elli’ Conner is a busy, on the go woman, looking for that missing spark in her life. She is smart and holds a responsible position as a personal assistant, but she needs more from her life. I liked that she was willing to try new things, and experience things outside her normal sphere of interests. Watching Elli open up was intriguing and illuminating, to say the least.

Renaldo ‘Ren’ Higgins is not the slickly hot and handsome hero we see so often. But he is sexy and self-assured, with the confidence and control that comes with maturity and experience. I appreciated that he was willing to be patient with Elli, and that he was honest and open with her, letting her know he was interested in more that just a one night stand where Elli is concerned.

Ms. Jones has caught all of the hesitancy and anticipation of a blind date, and brought these two characters together with the perfect touch of passion. I am not normally a big fan of first person stories, but this one would not have been as effective any other way. This is a very hot and seductive look at one woman’s journey into self-awareness, with a delightful happy ending for two very intriguing people. I highly recommend that you keep the ice water nearby, and the fan on high.
