Hey everyone! This ebook was kindly provided by the author/publisher via Netgalley prior to release in exchange for my honest review.
Janie Murphy’s glimpse inside of lifelong friend Cole Daniels’ special playroom has her intrigued, even if she has no physical experience with such wild pleasures. She only knows she’s been attracted to him for years and yearns for a relationship between them – and she’s not afraid to try a little kink.
Dominant Cole Daniels never imagined he’d find himself in the position of dragging a very grown-up and very attractive Janie out of a BDSM club. And when she challenges him to be the one to teach her the joys of the wilder side of intimacy or allow someone else the sheer pleasure of initiating her, he can’t resist.
As Janie begins to fall in love, witnessing a true power exchange causes her the painful realization that touching Cole’s heart is beyond her dreams.
When Janie leaves him, can Cole open his heart to the woman he truly loves? And will she be willing to handle all of Cole?
Whew, isn’t the cover sexy? I love it. Don’t worry that is one of the rare time where the book is as hot as the cover.
In the beginning we meet Master Cole, who pretty much personified everything I that comes to my mind when I think of the alpha male. He stormed into the BDSM club and “rescued” Janie. At first I was annoyed. Who does he think he is, she’s her own person and she can do what she wants? I was pretty frustrated on her behalf. Then I got to know Cole better. I could understand why he did what he did that night. Not only did I forgive him but I might have fallen in love with him. Just a little. Instead of thinking of him as possessive and controlling, he was protective and sweet.
Over the book we learn that Cole and Janie grew up together but grew apart as Janie went to university and they both navigated their way through some hard times. Cole has this need to protect Janie and we don’t fully understand it until the end of the book.
This book was hot. The steamy scenes were plentiful. The descriptions of some things in Cole’s playroom led to some Google searches that will make the NSA blush.
What made the book awesome was the emotional connection between Cole and Janie. When they were doing the BDSM stuff both in and out of the playroom, it was always obvious Cole cared about her comfort. Writing sexy scenes is one thing, writing sexy scenes where there’s impeccable communication is another. I appreciated every time Cole checked in with Janie and make sure she was still ok with everything he was doing to her.
Master Cole was a refreshing twist on the overdone friends to lovers trope. It was well-written and a quick and easy read. I’d recommend it for anyone who is looking for something a bit naughty but not too dark.

The Baller by Vi Keeland
This is one of those books that has been on my to read list forever.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.The famed quarterback decided to bare all.And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera
How can you picture that situation and not want to read more?
Pretty Little Liars was one of my favorite TV shows and the summary of this book reminded me so much of that. While I usually read romance, I enjoy a good murder mystery. So, I’m looking forward to starting this book. The most popular and mean girls in a high school are being murdered. Everyone is on edge, everyone is a suspect. No one knows who to trust. I’m hoping there’s a happy story in the book.
Have you read any of these books? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts. I’m sure you all know the struggle of picking out a good book, so help a woman out and give me some suggestions. What books have you enjoyed lately? As always, it would mean the world to me if you would like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter. The buttons should just be on the right side of the page.
