Ethan McDonald had everything he wanted in life until one jerk’s misconceptions caused him to be in an accident - inadvertently taking another’s life and nearly costing him his own. Months later he woke from a coma to find how much things had changed. He found forgiveness from the victim’s family, but could he find absolution from her husband and more importantly – himself.
It took months for him to integrate back into society. His friend, Nate, helped him refocus his life with the need for assistance in catching the culprit behind all the accounting mistakes at work. In turn, he was welcomed into Prescott International, as the new lead in IT. He’d gained favor from the family, especially from a certain lady…
Marjorie (Prescott) Bentley had finally succeeded in divorcing her husband and making her way back to her family and the company business. She’d been into the BDSM scene, but her ex, a wannabe Dom, nearly destroyed her, wanting her only for her wealth. She’d put on a friendly face to everyone, but internally she was trying to overcome the nightmares and struggles to find her way back to her old life, with her need to submit, her need for him…
Ethan and Marjorie saw through each other’s masquerades and found support with one another. But could they both let go of the nightmares of their pasts and move forward together? Could they both learn to heal, surrendering to one another, and their darkest desires?
She needed him, but he needed her Too!
NOTE: This is a Complete Novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ due to adult language and sexual content. This is an adult contemporary erotic romance filled with suspense, light BDSM, Dom/sub play, and touching on some psychological elements. This series centers around the Prescott family, their friends, and businesses. It includes unsavory characters, a horrid ex-husband, and a security team that will go to any lengths to protect this family. These are stand alone books that create the series, but they do not need to be read in order. The story is more enhanced if read in order.

He leaned to the side, putting most of his weight on one arm while the other pushed a few strands of hair away from the side of my face. “I love you and want to care for you.” His hand traveled up to touch the inside of my wrist. “These scars were made from him, not me. I’ll never bind you with rope, handcuffs, or anything that could cause damage to your perfect skin. How someone could do this so callously is beyond me?”
My panic began to subside, and I felt myself relax.
His eyes were warm, his hands tender caresses to my skin, as he asked, “Can you trust me?”
I didn’t have to think long about my answer. “You’re the first man I’ve been able to trust since my divorce. The only one I’d trust with my soul.”
His eyes sparkled as he leaned down and kissed me gently, “I trust you with mine as well. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have let you go ballistic on my ass with that flogger.” He quirked a lopsided smile that melted my heart. At that moment, I didn’t know where this crazy ride we were on was leading, but I knew I wanted it to be with him.
I felt remorseful about earlier. “I can’t express how sorry I am about…”
His finger came up to silence me as he shook his head. “It’s done. It’s over with. We’ll never make mention of it again. Tonight is all about you. I want your complete surrender to me. I want to keep your arms bound with a silk scarf and your eyes focused on mine. I want you to know that I’m the one in charge. It’s my face you’ll associate with pleasure, pulling every possible orgasm out of this body that I can, leaving you spent and craving more. What do you say, love?”
“Yes, my love. Yes, Sir.”
His lips crushed mine as his hands circled underneath my shoulders, pulling me onto him even harder. He’d finally released my lips, leaning over me saying, “Eyes on me, darling. I want you to know how perfect we are together. I’m the one bringing you this pleasure and no one else. Your mine, Marjorie! Say it, love.”
The love and intensity in his eyes held me captive. I felt our souls and body connect on a level I’d never encountered. I couldn’t tell where either of us began or ended. The sensations building inside of me were different than before. His movements were sweet, gentle, yet claiming all at once.
“Your mine now, Marjorie. Come for me, love. Be one with me, now.” His words were a beacon of light to me, freeing me from the dark confines of my past, knowing that with him I could finally open myself up to new things and allow him to guide me. I knew with Ethan, I’d be safe.
I cried as my muscles locked down on him, sending electrical waves of current throughout my entire body. His lips sealed over mine, absorbing my cries of passion while he pumped into me one last time. Feeling the intensity of his release, I wrapped my legs tightly around his waist not wanting him to separate from me.
Fireworks continued to go off behind my eyes, for what seemed like an eternity. Our breath was nearly spent. He finally broke off our kiss and collapsed into my neck. “My god, I love you, woman. I’m addicted to every part of you.”
I felt my body relax onto the sheets, not caring anymore that my wrists were bound together and over my head. All I felt was utter peace and tranquility. I let out a ragged breath, “I love you too. I’m completely captivated by your mind, body, and soul.”
I Need You Too is book four in Cynthia P O'Neill's Need series, and it is just as good as the previous books. This is Ethan and Marjorie's story and it is set a couple of years after the tragic accident that killed Gabi. Ethan is still blaming himself for the accident, despite Gabi's family repeatedly telling him that it wasn't his fault and that he was a victim too. Marjorie is still recovering from her divorce to a husband who left her with numerous mental and physical scars. Ethan and Marjorie have been a great support to each other, but is it worth risking their friendship to try out a romantic relationships? As they grow closer they soon realise that they are in danger from a deranged killer who has one of them in their sights.
There is so much raw emotion in this book, Ethan and Marjorie have both been through so much, it is heartbreaking. But this was expertly balanced with humour and passion so it was a heartwarming story. The BDSM was fairly light, but it was also very hot. I loved how newcomer to the lifestyle, Ethan, was determined to be the perfect Dom for Marjorie and learnt from her and other Doms. These two really did need each other, they were a perfect partnership.
As well as the fantastic romance storyline, there is also an intriguing suspense plot that had me hooked. There was a big twist that I really wasn't expecting, but it was so good. This is a great book that I absolutely loved - five stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
