Gabe’s lifestyle as a Master Dom is leaving him empty and cold. Everything else in his life seems to be falling apart too. Taking a break from the BDSM scene seems like a good idea—until he meets the perfect submissive. Reagan has started a new life as a strong, independent woman. The last thing she wants is to be trapped in another controlling relationship. Letting a dominant man like Gabe into her life could cost her everything she’s worked so hard for. But Reagan sees the emotions Gabe’s keeping locked inside, and she knows how to unlock those feelings. Gabe is determined to never lose control, show weakness or reveal his secrets. But the lust he shares with Reagan breaks through his walls. Faced with a bleak, lonely future, he must somehow find the strength to let himself be vulnerable before he can experience the joy and sweetness of love. Note: To see how Reagan’s friends found love and lust, don’t miss Tori’s romance in Power Exchange or Tara’s in Taming Tara. Reader Advisory: Contains very brief male/male touching.
