Publisher's Summary

Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she's a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him, only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O'Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend's possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he'll end up falling for her himself. Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam's crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn't ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself-heart, body, and soul-to Liam?

she read my mind..

If you could sum up One Dom to Love in three words, what would they be?

in 3 words, I'd say "Oh yes, Sir!" Love this book, keeps you on your toes.. comparable to Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty, only more modern.. this woman has talent with words and her mind is even better! ;) p.s. Both the men are equally appealing, only in different ways...

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

made me horny, I had awesome sex with my husband after listening to only a few chapters (and no, I'm not deprived of sex lol)

Whew

It's a bug stew of troubling obsession, love, sex, damage and domination. Wish I knew it was a series, cause I hate waiting, but it gets better as the book goes on. Hammer is tough to take at first, Raine seems a bit too fragile and immature, but character development and story moves along nicely.

She is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists

I love Shayla Black Books because she captures the true essence of the D/s experience. She does this without the disrespect of non consensual sex. I have become a true fan. and I never write book reviews!

Okay...

Cliffhanger. Needs to be read in order. Book 1 of a series. Book 2 is "The Young and the Submissive."

Story takes place within a small group of acquaintances in a BDSM sex club.

On the positive side, the book is well-written. I am caught up in the character's stories and I want to know more. The passion between characters is palpable, and the pain they're feeling seems real.

On the other side, some aspects of this book were challenging. Two of the three male characters are truly awful people - they lack empathy, are self-centred to the point of being childish and mean, and are dismissive of the physical and emotional abuse they dish out. My skin crawled many times during this book when this horrible behaviour (that was not safe, sane or consensual) was downplayed with "red flag" real-life excuses similar to "I had my reasons." It was a concern that there was little or no consequences, and the actions were soon forgotten. So far, I am still engaged in the book because these characters aren't being rewarded (yet) for these behaviours. If readers have any triggers related to physical abuse, I'd suggest skipping this series.

The narration is good.

The consensual sexy times are hot, but there are also play scenes where the sexual enjoyment is not mutual.

Decent story

Decent story with a lot of steamy sex. Ends on a cliff hanger definitely not a stand alone book.

Excellent read!

This book has everything. I really enjoyed the genuine bond between these three even with the depth of pain each one had to suffer.

Love the story- Hate the multiple books

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! Loved loved loved the story & the characters! Hated being right in the middle of a pivotal point and the book JUST ENDING!!!! Now I struggle to decide if I buy the next book or just give up on the whole thing! :(

Torn in two~

TWO STRONG DOMINANT MEN WITH STRENGTHS THAT ARE APPEALING YET DARKNESS AND SECRETS THAT CAN BE SCARY. BEST Friends with a shared love for one woman. This story was intense, entrancing with an undercurrent dark edge
