She needs a Dom with heart. He sees the lifestyle as heartless.
Can a brave submissive show a rock star that accepting his true nature will be nirvana for both of them? Letting go with her may help him put the pieces of himself—and his band—back together again.
Struggling with the death of her mother, Sage Lyndsey turned to her Dom for comfort, but his impatience led to a humiliating scene in front of their club. Devastated, she runs to a small town on the Cali coast. Buying into Citrus Pointe’s bakery may be her best decision ever—if she can overcome the embarrassment of having her new landlord’s dog steal her towel right in front of him. It gets worse when she realizes he’s none other than rock bassist Hank Nash, and despite the problems it would cause, she wants nothing more than his talented hands on her, bending her to his will.
Hank is an ex-cop who knows all too well what dominance looks like when it turns to abuse—he saw the consequences on another cop’s wife. After turning the man in, Hank left that life behind to start a rock band, Weekend Washout. Now he’s fighting to keep the band together, and to deny his urge to dominate pretty, spunky Sage. But when Sage’s ex-Dom reappears, Hank is forced into a life-changing decision: Accept both their needs and gain more than one night with Sage, or retreat to the safe life he’s built so carefully.
Only For The Night is an enjoyable, sweet romance with a sexy side to it. It's the second book in the If Only series, but it works well as a standalone. I may go back and read the first book though, as that book's main characters appeared in this story as part of the supporting cast and I loved both of them. This is a an easy to read book, with a sexy rock star hero with a sweet tooth,and a baker heroine who can definitely satisfy his sweet cravings. I must say that this book made me very hungry, and I'm desperate to try a bear claw pastry - but I've never seen them here in the UK!
After being publicly humiliated by her Dom, Sage starts afresh in a new town by purchasing the town's popular bakery. But her first meeting with her new landlord turns embarrassing when his dog pinches the towel she was wearing after having a shower! Her landlord is Hank Nash, a cop turned rock star and he is absolutely gorgeous. Their chemistry is amazing, but they discover their is a big obstacle in their path if they want to start a relationship. Sage is submissive, and needs to submit to be fulfilled in life. Hank has only ever seen the ugly side of the lifestyle - a former colleague who was a so called 'Dom' that abused his partner - and now he has a hatred of BDSM. Can Sage show Hank the beauty of the lifestyle? Will Hank be able to meet her half way and make their relationship succeed?
The BDSM in this book is fairly light, so it's an ideal read for someone who's new to the genre. There are some great moments of humour in this book, and some fabulously hot sexy scenes. It's an ideal beach read where you can dream about your own tattooed, alpha male rocker! Five stars!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
Writing has been my passion since childhood, but like many writers, life got in the way. After earning a BA in English Literature, I married and started a family. But the worlds and characters that swirled through my mind just wouldn’t go away, and at a particularly difficult time in my life, I picked up pen and paper (or laptop) and tried to release some of that difficulty onto the page. I’ve been writing ever since. Now I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, run an accountability blog to help writers reach their goals, and am pursuing publication with the same passion I feel for writing.
Nothing pleases me more than sharing the stories of my heart with you, the reader, and I hope, in some small way, these stories will touch your heart too.
