In Australia to get a break from an abusive ex-husband whose obsession has turned to stalking, the last thing Zoe is looking for is another relationship involving whips and chains. But then she runs into former Australian football player Nick Carrady. He’s sexy and the perfect gentleman—and a Dom. And Zoe’s submissive longings are reemerging—the ones that got her into so much trouble in the first place back in Texas. Fortunately all Nick can ever be is a hot, kinky vacation fling.
Nick finds the little American sub hot as hell. Her past means he has to be careful as he pushes her limits, but he has only a little time for bondage, flogging and sexual healing before she heads back to Texas. He has to convince her that the past doesn’t have to dictate her future, and hope that his passion and skill as a dominant lover can overcome her history and the ten thousand miles that’s about to come between them.
Zoe flees one Dom and isn’t looking for another when she meets hot Australian Nick Carrady. She’s fascinated by his Australian accent and he’s charmed by her Texas twang. He sees Zoe for the hot little sub she is and wants to help her heal in the short time she’s in Melbourne.
I loved Zoe for having the strength of character to get away and divorce an abusive partner, and where better to get a break but 10,000 miles away in Australia. She wasn’t too broken to take a chance on Nick, and that made the story flow instead of being stilted because of her doubts. That’s not to say she didn’t have doubts but Nick worked so hard to make sure she could learn to submit again. Nick was loveable from the moment he caught Zoe after she bumped into him, he is the type of hero we all want. He was a perfect gentleman and was willing to work to bring Zoe back into the world of sexual submission she craves.
The way the author describes Melbourne makes me want to get on a plane and go to all the places Zoe and Nick visited. I want to go to the Royal Zoo, see the gaol and try meat pies. This is a fast, sexy read that will have you falling in love and your heart racing.
If you’re in need of a hot story with a sexy Dom who knows how to fight for his lady this is the story for you.
