Zeke Hayes (Master Z) is our hot and hunky, Special Forces, alpha male. *Surprise* He has commitment issues. Their friendship is the one solid thing she relies on to help her work through her demons. When that friendship evolves into something much more, Zeke tries very hard to push her away. He needs control and he doesn't think Rayna can handle his needs. He is falling for her but is fighting it with everything in him. Unfortunately, it's at Rayna's expense and he is constantly sending her mixed signals.
Circumstances send them into hiding with Zeke trying to protect Rayna from Mua once again.
The story line is a little far-fetched, but isn't that why we read, to get lost in a book, to escape reality? It is emotional, suspenseful and sexy.
"He kissed her softly again before whispering, "I'm going to care for you and cherish you, honey. I'm going to spoil you and pleasure you. I'm going to give you everything you want, but not before you get what you need. And yeah... I'm going to dominate you in every way you'll let me." Angel Payne certainly knows how to make us swoon!
Rayna's finds out she is still the target of the slave traffickers, Zeke comes to her rescue and they hide away. When words comes that the vile man who is hunting her is leaving the country they come out of hiding to find Sage and Garret are getting married. All hell breaks loose when the traffickers turn up!
This was a battle of wills between a Master Dom and a newbie Sub.
Zeke was an emotional wreck and no matter how much he tried to convince himself that he couldn't settle with just one woman that woman came out fighting for him.
Plenty of action in and out of the bedroom making this hot, steamy and exhausting.
All the characters are gelling together nicely.
Surrendering To Her Sergeant (The WILD Boys Of Special Forces Book 3)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
To paraphrase a quote from a famous movie, Ms. Payne had me at "A woman screamed." The heart wrenching journey began with these words as Rayna Chestain and Zeke Hayes worked to heal each other and learn to trust again. I had read the first W.I.L.D. Boys book so I knew all about the hell Rayna had gone through after being kidnapped and physically and sexually abused by sex slave traffickers. Rayna was healing physically but still had a long way to go to heal emotionally. Zeke was just the man to help her.
Zeke was part of the Special Forces Agent team to rescue Rayna and he was the one to carry her away from her prison. The two formed a special bond almost immediately. That bond continued to grow in Handcuffed by Her Hero.
I think I have found a new book boyfriend in Zeke Hayes. First, he's Special Forces. Sigh. He's a Dom. Double sigh! He's fiercely loyal, super protective, and built like a Mack truck. Pick me up off the floor!! Zeke helps Rayna in her journey to heal and together they discover her submissive side. But Zeke also finds healing for himself in Rayna's arms. He has his own nightmares to deal with, namely his difficult childhood and the horrors he witnesses as a soldier.
In Saved by His Submissive, the first book in the W.I.L.D. Boy series, Rayna is kidnapped by the evil King twice. During the second kidnapping, she is able to shoot and kill him, but this puts her on the radar of King's twin brother Mua. Mua's obsession with possessing Rayna creates a new threat in Handcuffed by Her Hero that the hero and heroine must overcome. As the two fight this new villain, they also fight their own demons that work to keep Zeke and Rayna apart.
Ms. Payne has such a vivid way of writing that you, as the reader, are pulled heart first into the story. Knowing that Rayne still suffered horrible nightmares from her kidnapping made me cry along with Zeke. I was emotionally vested in both characters from page one. You do not need to have read the first book in the series to feel the emotional pull but reading it will provide you with a deeper connection to both the hero and heroine.
The tension remained high throughout keeping me on the edge of my seat and dying to know how we would reach our happily ever after. Ms. Payne knew just how to mess with my mind as we find out that the villain had help from an unexpected source and the twisted logic that the source used to justify their actions. I couldn't put Handcuffed by Her Hero down as I was torn between wanting to find out what happened next and the desire for the book to never end.
Ms. Payne knows how to develop characters into three dimensional beings. Her ability to put together a cohesive storyline that is intriguing just adds to the beauty of her writing. And can she ever write a smoking hot BDSM scene. For all these reasons, I wish that I had more than five stars to give to Handcuffed by Her Hero. You don't want to miss this book!
"Feel it," he directed. "Do it. Feel your body. Love it again. You're so ******* stunning, Rayna. You're warm, you're vibrant, and you're alive. You did it. You survived."
After being captured not once, but twice by the evil slave traders, Rayna is still here. She is not entirely whole yet, and of course she still has horrible nightmares, but when you have a hero like Zeke Hayes to pull you back to reality and to give you scorching hot orgasms, what's a little nightmare in the scheme of things, right? Rayna knows what Zeke is, a big, bad Dom with a line of subs waiting for his huge palm. She knows and understands that what they have isn't a forever thing. She is just amazed at how she is able to stand his touch, to feel everything he gives her after what has been done to her in the past. Rayna trusts Zeke with all her heart, and takes what she can get.
"I don't do smooth jazz and long, slow walks on the beach, honey. I'll **** you like a Stratocaster solo, hard and long and sweaty, until your ears ring and you don't know which way is up anymore."
Sergeant Ezekiel Gabriel Hayes, aka Zeke, aka Psycho Zsycho....how can I describe this incredibly complicated man? I would say, in one word...BEAUTIFUL! Inside and out! Growing up a poor street kid was difficult. It is hard to trust or get close to anyone. He's strong, protective, incredibly loyal to his team, and just plain reckless, which makes him perfect for the Special Forces team. This is a man you would want at your back, at your front, and everywhere in between! *Smirks* Zeke has felt something for Rayna ever since him and his team saved her. He knows he doesn't deserve her, he knows he can't give her the white picket fence, and yet once he has a taste, will he be able to walk away from her?
"Your beauty is mine to worship. Your mind is mine to inhabit. Your body is mine to use."
Damn Angel! You certainly can get me all hot and bothered with the sex scenes you write. Just when I thought Garrett from SAVED BY HIS SUBMISSIVE was my favorite Dom, Zeke steps in and kicks his *** out of the top spot. Not only was this a scorching BDSM read, but it was extremely suspenseful and thrilling. I caught myself a couple times holding my breath, and trying to read faster and faster. HANDCUFFED BY HER HERO was a very emotional read for me as well. It was a thing of beauty to read about how much these two have grown throughout the story. Rayna growing as a beautiful submissive, and Zeke growing as a man and as a Dom and leaving that street kid behind. This was a story of survival, growth, and love. I can't wait for you all to read this. You will not want to leave this incredible world that Angel Payne has created for her readers.
Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads
Angel sure can write sexy. This series is hot as hell and only gets better with each book, I cannot wait to read the next one. Sergeant Zeke is a total Dominant and there are plenty of happy subs across the globe, he's not the type to give his heart out and make himself vulnerable. Hes a kick butt warrior who never gives up he's never met a situation that he cant get out of. The book starts after he rescues Rayna from a Slave trafficker. He knows Rayna is special and she needs him and knocks down his defenses, he wants her bad. Amazing action scenes and totally hot as hell sex scenes, I mean hot as hell!. He is one badass Grizzly. They Both are learning to trust and Love. Love this book, cant wait for more by Angel Payne. 5 stars
Sadistic dominant male falling in love with a vanilla female is never recommended. Why? Because one or both are going to be sexually unsatisfied.
Zeke Hayes is a sexual sadist who loves impact play. When he gets into his Top zone, he is also known as "Psycho Zsycho". When he falls for Rayna, a woman he helped rescue from sexual slavery, he's all out of sorts. He believes she can't handle his brand of spicy heat.
The suspense in this story is a good energetic pace. The story continues from the previous book. There is another little twist with the reappearance of a secondary character. The secondary character, Luna, is absolutely bonkers. This is a person who is probably leaning towards sociopathic because she doesn't really understand the difference between right and wrong. Or it just seems she doesn't care. She is focused on only the goal, and her goal is to keep Zeke all for herself. She's an extreme masochist who wants Zeke to be her dominant.
The BDSM in this story does make me go a bit more WTF. Ms. Payne keeps hinting at D/s subtext when these female "bottoms" or "submissives" immediately change their mannerisms and start answering with "Yes, Sir". She also tells the reader these BDSM interactions are intense and high on the sadistic side. For some, it may be. From my personal experience, what I've read here is considered standard and a bit mild.
Now, remember dear readers, this is all based on a person's experience. I'm not sure what is going on with the crowd I'm in, but I'm the mild one because I only do knifeplay, fireplay, electricity and breathplay for my edge plays. I do not enjoy blood play, but I will submit to it if the dominant really gets off on it. The majority of the group I'm in is heavy into bloodplay, micro-branding and needleplay. When I say heavy, I mean it looks like Dexter's splatter room after they are done with a scene. There are special protocols to sanitize the equipment, walls, ceiling and floor after a scene. To me, this is a bit more sadistic and a hard limit. First, I don't like the taste of blood. Second, I don't like the sight of blood. Third, I don't want any chance of catching some blood pathogen.
Now, can a whip cause the same kind of blood splatter? Not usually as much as the above, but it can cause a breakage in the skin and blood to flow. In this story, there is a scene between Luna and Zeke where another top called out the safeword. It is of interest because nothing I read as it is presented would cause for alarm. Sure there would be bruising. It's not uncommon for some bruising to take three weeks to fade away, especially from a whip, cane or paddle. Overall, the BDSM scenes in here are a little bit more than mild but not dark and intense. It's an excellent next step for those who are now past the Gateway to BDSM stories.
Switching to the character development, this story is better than the first. There is more richness to Zeke's background which helps makes him more understandable. He is a desirable dominant and it shows through his command and his aftercare. Rayna is a good balance for him and the chemistry between the two is good. This romantic suspense is recommended to kinky readers who love a happily ever after.
Rayna is messed up from her time in captivity, but Zeke is fighting demons of his own. From the very beginning they just fit each other. They both try to keep each other at a emotional distance again and again, only to crash back into their blistering need for each other, body and soul.
Their big relationship conflict comes much later in the book and I wished Rayna put Zeke through more hell. Their back and forth in the beginning of the book is understandable, but after all they share by the second half of the book, I would have liked to see a much more pissed off Rayna. I was pissed off for her. Maybe I'm just blood thirsty. She does put him in his place, which is satisfying but she's still very amiable towards him two seconds later. I was still slightly miffed.
Although I appreciated many of the different plot twists in this book, I felt the carried over kidnapping plot, from book 1, was getting stale.
