When Lacey loses control of her vehicle and finds herself trapped by ice and snow, she knows there’s only one person to call for help. Unfortunately, Michael may cause more turmoil than relief. She’s lusted for the gorgeous Dom ever since she first laid eyes on him. Trouble is, he doesn’t do vanilla and she’s not a submissive…or is she?
Michael’s hungered for Lacey for months, so when he notices her fleeting glimpses and blush-stained cheeks as he rescues her from an altercation with a guardrail, he decides it’s time to push the sultry beauty’s boundaries…only to discover Lacey’s not as reserved as she thinks.
Physical attraction blossoms into something neither anticipates, taking Michael and Lacey beyond kink, dominance and submission. Their newfound connection is strong. Until a flame from Michael’s past returns, shatters the fragile trust he and Lacey have only just developed and threatens to destroy something neither wants to surrender.
Today just isn’t the day for Lacey Walsh. She walked in on her boyfriend sleeping with his secretary (and they weren’t doing too much sleeping before her interruption). Now she's stranded on the side of the road after she slammed into a guard rail on the way home. The only person who can get her out of this jam is the one person she doesn’t want to call. The man makes her blood stir and soaks her panties far more than she would like to admit. When giving into him is the only option on the table, today and forever, can Lacey make herself see that Michael wants more from her than just her body? Will his past make her run from him before he can open her eyes to the real Michael?
Michael has lusted for Lacey for months, and while he knows she's scared he can tell that she's born to be with him. There's just something about Lacey that sings to him and he can’t help but want to mark her as his in every way possible. Being gentle isn’t something Michael is especially good at but he's willing to give it a chance if it gets him the wonderful Lacey in the end. Will a surprise visit from Michael's sordid past make Lacey run from him or will he be able to make her see everything is different now that she is with him?
Talk about a HOT book! For the majority of the story I wanted to be Lacey and embrace the lifestyle Michael was offering her. Aline Hunter made the characters so realistic they couldn’t have been more real had they jumped off the page and talked to me. The story line was complete and flowed so well that the last page came way too soon and I hated to see it all end. I liked how Ms. Hunter left enough hanging to allow for a second book while still tying up the ending of Make Me Shiver for a decent solo read.
This is definitely a book for someone comfortable in the BDSM area as it's a heavy factor in the majority of this book. For someone new to the genre Ms. Hunter still made an enjoyable read for those who are simply curious. I will definitely be looking for more works by Ms. Hunter in the future!
