When business brings him to New York City indefinitely, Gage Hollister is sure that somewhere in this massive city, there must be a woman whose need to be dominated matches his thirst to dominate. But as his search through the local BDSM clubs drags on, he begins to doubt whether such a woman exists. When he's asked to chaperone his best friend's younger sister, who's on her first solo trip as an adult, he welcomes the distraction.
Zoe Marshall has been in love with Gage forever, and has saved herself for him alone. Now, after careful planning and a bit of luck, she finally has the chance to show him she's all grown-up and ready to be his. Gage believes himself too old and jaded for an innocent like Zoe, but she is relentless in her innocent seduction, and soon his resistance crumbles. But as their love blooms, reality tackles their dreams. And in the aftermath, the choices they face will strain the bonds of friendship and family. Perhaps beyond repair.

I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
I'm not a prude. I loved the Siren series and numerous other D/s books available here. But I wouldn't have purchased this book after reading book 2, except that I'd already bought all three, so I gave it a chance. Since I really enjoyed book 1 for the emotional connection between the characters, I hoped this would be even a little bit like that one. But like book 2, there was no tenderness or love shown between the characters. This was just some guy saying "Hot damn! I've got this woman who will be subservient to me and let me do whatever I want to her, so it must be love!"
He used the 19 year old virgin heroine as one might a receptacle for his bodily fluids. He made it clear that he wanted a 24/7 slave to control, and he only loved her because she allowed it. I gave up when he started leaving teeth marks from biting her hard all over her ass. She made it clear that she loved him so much and the only way she could show how much was not to use her safe word.
I'm not sure if men like this exist or not, but if they do, there's something very wrong with them. That the author can invent this kind of sick abuse of women -- well there's something wrong with her, too.
I don't consider this a D/s book -- this is in a category all it's own -- one I won't revisit.
I enjoyed this book. I liked it better than the 2nd book. This book revolves around Gage and Brice's sister Zoe. I think it was a good solid listen. At first I could not get over the age difference but after a bit it did not matter. I also think that the author did a good job wrapping up all the loose ends. The narrator was good although I still prefer to have a female narrator. For some reason I just cannot get past male narrator’s female voices. However, he did do a good job compared to some. I think it was worth the credit.
