Liz Gillibrand wants a man she can submit to in the bedroom but still keep her sex life a secret from the conservative ranching community. When she discovers her neighbor owns Rawhide, a private bondage club, she might have found the answer. But the first Dom she meets is Alex Wright, a man she’s already connected with physically and emotionally. Once before she tried to merge her private life with the lifestyle but with disastrous results. Can Alex be the one to finally free her from the past and give her the life she longs for?
Desiree Holt has done it again!! She wrote another hot story with an amazing Dom. Ms. Holt stories make you want to grab the closest cowboy, run out to your nearest club and have a bit of fun! YEEHAW!!
Slapping Leather is great short story in the Cowboy Kink line, a collection of stories by various authors. Elizabeth is tired of working hard and being sexually frustrated. She is unsure how to have a fulfilling sex life in her small community. She’s been hurt before and she has no desire to be hurt again. Alex might just be the man to help fix her little problem. He is a man that knows what he wants and it is Elizabeth, in his bed.
Elizabeth “Liz” Gillibrand has spent the last year trying to prove to everyone in her community that she deserves Lucky L Ranch. Unknown to her, the owner willed the property to her a year ago and has been fighting to make a name for herself ever since. She is now known for her determination and work ethic. Liz has not had time or the desire to have a personal life. Her sexual preferences would be a bit too shocking for her rather conservative clientele. She has too much to lose and a past that she has no wish to relive. That is until the day Alex drove into her ranch. The only thing she can think of is “Oh my hot Texas lord”.
Alex Wright is all cowboy, from his loose-hipped gait to his thick as sorghum drawl. He is way too much temptation for Liz and she knows her limits. With a little help from her friends, she finds that she can venture into her old lifestyle at the club Rawhide. Unfortunately, Alex is also a member of Rawhide and he sees this as an opportunity to get close to Liz.
The chemistry between these two is instantaneous. Liz is very protective of her life and fears Alex will cause too many problems. It doesn’t take long for Alex to work his way into Liz’s heart. This is purely a love story. There are no villains within the story, only emotions to work through. I cheered for these two from the beginning all the way to the end.
Slapping Leather is wonderful story of how Liz is able to work through her past hurts and move on. Ms. Holt does not disappoint with steamy scenes and great story telling. She is consistently a favorite author of mine. From the first page to the last, nothing gets between me and my Desiree Holt books.
