When FBI analyst Tara Jacobs' fellow agent and best friend goes missing while investigating a sex ring, Tara goes undercover as a submissive in a Dallas BDSM club called Dominion. But no man can top a woman with Tara's moxie convincingly enough - until an edgy, dangerous dom takes control of the scene and sets her heart racing with a single commanding glance. Too bad he's also the man who stole her innocence years ago - and the one to whom she will never submit.
Navy SEAL Logan Edgington once left the woman he loved to save her life. He knows Tara will never forgive him, but he has no doubt that he possesses the knowledge to master her fears and the strength to guide her through an unfamiliar world of pleasure and pain. He alone can protect her on a dangerous mission that reveals both wicked depravities and terrible secrets. Logan relishes the exquisite torture of holding her again, feeling her uninhibited response. No matter how much Tara insists their fling will end after this mission, he's determined that she will be his again - and this time, he'll never let her go.

As much as I disliked Hunter and Kata in book 4, I loved Logan and Tara in book 5. I got the connection between them that I just never got in the last book. This series is basically lots of hot sex and a bit of good guy/bad guy action. I love Lexi Maynard and hope she continues to perform these. The only negative was that there weren't many updates on past characters, but Logan and Tara were more than enough to hold my interest.
I found that I really love about this story is the characters themselves; the story line itself is interesting and somewhat plausible. But the characters! I think I love Logan; the classic flawed hero/bad-ass bad boy always gets my attention and Tara's spunkiness is a recipe for sparks. But it's also the lesser characters who add dimension to this story, Xander in particular-his presence as the classic side-kick is welcome both as a foil and as a point of concern. Black's done a nice job with giving us interesting sidekicks and friends in the past and this story continues that trend in this series.
Logan as Dom is believable and the romance is as well.
Is this serious reading/listening material? Not so much but then, I WAS looking for pure escapism and this book fits the bill in my Universe!
And as always, props to Lexie Maynard; her narration brings the characters to life for me.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Erotic, hot, variety
Sweet Series by Maya Banks
I ADORE Lexi Maynard's performance in ALL of the Wicked Series...she gives each character their own 'voice' and the narration is gripping.
I love this series however, this was not my favorite....the first 3 are my top ones.
Adult Themes for mature audiences, strong language and sexual content.
Will do anything for books!
Okay so this is a good story over all and maybe I was just in the mood for something else but I found myself distracted throughout. I know this is the fifth in the series and I enjoyed getting to know Logan and meeting Tara, seeing into their troubled pasts. The twists and turns in the end were great, but honestly, I can't believe I'm actually saying this but there was a bit too much sex and BDSM which usually isn't an issue for me.
That said, however, being that it is the fifth in the series of seven you can't skip it, though honestly I did fast forward through some of the sex. I also enjoyed the cameos by previous characters in this, I love a series that keeps me updated on the lives of the ones that came before. There wasn't much of that in this one but there was a little and we got to meet Xander as well, he is an interesting character!
Narration was great, I have no complaints there!
Shayla Black whole series is A MUST READ for any fan of erotica trust me you wont be disappointed. Lets just say Lexi Maynard narration can only be describe as a hot cup of rich coffee flavor by the after glow of the best sex a girl could ever have.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I am sooo pissed. I have waited and waited for Logan's story for sooo long.. Ever since book 3! Logan is suppose to be this great dom... even his house is all dom..ed out...but What the crap was this.
The whole FBI case was kinda stupid.. I just can't beleive this was Logan's story. CRAP!
Black is an awesome writer and the wicked lovers series is just awesome...then we get this... BOoo.. Black Booo.
Although I totally didn't like this, Maynard is one heck of a narrator.. She save this book on so many levels. I think I will still get the next one, just to wash my mind of this book.
If you like the WLS then credit this book. Don't buy...
Addictive, hot, sexy!
I loved Logan. I did not think I would like him this much, based upon Past book descriptions. However, Shayla created a bad ass Navy Seal with a sweet, loving heart.
This was one of my favorite books in the series. Impossible to stop listening to! Not believable, but hot, erotic, and strong characters. Always a good love story in the end!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Trust Shayla Black to beautifully mix a passionate action packed plot with kidnapping, suspense, BDSM, a fated love story involving a hot broken hearted Navy Seal and then add lots of explicit erotica - and what you get is a fantastic listen about second chances that certainly get's your pulse racing.
Looking forward to book 6 Mine To Hold ...... and all the rest of course!!
Worth a credit? Yes - I'm happy this now belongs to me.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
In the top 10.
I have all the books in this series. They are so hot and erotic. It's always a automatic purchase for me. I love this book because of the sizziling sex and also because of the danger that adds that little extra edge. My only complaint is that the book is over. I can't wait until the next one!!
