The day started bad for Raine Kendall and despite her determination never to let it happen again she knew she was going to have her heart broken by Macen Hammerman - again! Despite knowing him for a number of years he refused to acknowledge her as a woman. For him she was still the little girl he had rescued in the alley behind his club. He took her in, educated her and nurtured her but still treated her like a 15 year old.
Raine is a sensual woman who deeply loves him but as woman and not as the child he still believes she is. She decides to try once more and throws herself at Macen only to be humiliated and crushingly rejected by him again.
Enter Liam O'Connell, Macen's close friend. Liam watches his friends rejection of Raine and decided to step in and play a game with Macen. Make him jealous and help him to recognise Raine as a woman - that was the plan but what Liam didn't reckon for was falling for Raine himself.
There were aspects of this story that I liked. Raine was feisty and it was good to see this when she dealt with Macen and his churlish behaviour. Macen blew too hot and cold for me and despite thinking he had Raine's best interests at heart he was a totally selfish, insensitive and at time a cruel dominant that didn't appear to know his own mind.
Liam's handling of Raine was good. He showed her what it could be like to submit to him, he was sensitive and loving but also very dominant.
The book lost a number of stars because once again we are left with the usual cliff hanger and yes it is a trilogy.Read more ›
Raine has now grown into a beautiful sensual woman who passionately loves Macen, as a woman - not a child. He refuses to see her that way even after she completely humiliates herself literally throwing herself at him. Macen decides to punish Raine (yes, for loving him and being understandably destroyed when he brushes her off yet again) and gives her to a hard-core sadist to be admonished. Macen's closest friend Liam is staying at the club, he is attracted to Raine and see's her potential as a submissive so he propositions her to train with him. Whilst Liam secretly hopes it will make his friend jealous, he is there at Raine's punishment and stops it going to far - taking Raine to begin her training.
Anyhow, both boys end up wanting Raine and they end up scrapping over her. She is pulled in both directions as her fondness for Liam grows under his tutelage.
This story lost a star because of Macen - I just struggled to like him at all. He owns a BDSM club for God's sake, he professes to have Raine's best interests at heart but he is so uncontrollably emotive and cruel. Yes, I know he has 'issues' but this is no excuse for his behaviour, as a Dom he is despicable and as a man he's an insensitive ass! Also, a cliff-hanger, although the major part of the story was concluded so I was ok with that.
I liked how fiery Raine is, she is courageous and tough and I adored Liam's handling of her and his cherishing her.
I did really enjoy the story but even with three very talented authors, the quality of 'Cherise Sinclair's' books this is not.
It is a good thing that this is the first of a series, as I definitely want to know where it goes from here. Fascinating set up, crazy scenes, alphas who struggle with control ... I enjoyed it a great deal, and whilst it was somewhat implausible, well, aren't a lot of these stories ... It is well written, face paced and light hearted. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next installment.

“I'm just so g****** tired of being ignored. Every freaking day, I'm here. You see me, but you don't see me. Why? Am I not obedient enough? Pretty enough? Smart or cultured enough? Or is it because I'm not a carbon copy of one of your plastic whores?”
Six years ago, when Macen Hammerman (aka Hammer) took in an almost eighteen year old runaway sleeping in the alley behind his underground BDSM club, he never could have expected the effect she would have on his life. All these years later he has grown to love her but refuses to act on it-Hammer has some pretty serious demons in his past that won't allow him to let her in, knowing he would only hurt her in the end.
Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, the man who took her in off the streets, for years. Tired of being ignored and looked over for the many women who have crossed into his bedroom, she finally lays all her heart on the line, offering herself to him completely... and he rejects her-in the cruelest way possible. Finally pushed past her limits on how much pain her heart can take, she decides to pack it in and just leave, or so she thought...
Liam O’Neill has been best friends with Hammer for years, he can see how much he loves Raine and doesn't understand why he insists on punishing himself by not claiming the one woman he wants. He also see the damage being inflicted on Raine by Hammer's constant rejection-he won't claim her for himself, yet he won't allow another Dom to claim her either. So he puts a plan in motion; he offers Raine the opportunity to be trained as a submissive by him, knowing the blinding rage Hammer will inevitably feel will force the other Dom to act.Read more ›
