Publisher's Summary

A curious woman

Ashley Paxon understands responsibility. After her fiancé left her alone and pregnant, she forged a new life for herself and her daughter. Moving to Dallas, she went back to school and found a job at a club called Sanctum. As one of the BDSM club's waitresses, she watches the Doms and their submissives every night. She yearns to explore their lifestyle of discipline and power exchange, but she knows she wouldn't belong.

A wounded man

Keith Langston believes in living in the moment. Haunted by the past, he moves from one casual relationship to the next and never looks back. But the moment he lays eyes on Ashley, something primal and possessive takes over. He can't stop thinking about her and yet he knows he can't offer her what she needs. Having her seems impossible until Sanctum's owner, the mysterious Ian Taggart, makes him an offer he can't refuse.

The perfect contract

Offered the chance to train Ashley and initiate her into the D/s lifestyle, Keith is delighted to accept. Under the guidelines of a carefully crafted contract, they lose themselves in the pleasures and intimacies of being Master and submissive. But when Ashley and her daughter are threatened, Keith realizes she needs much more than a part-time Dom. To protect her, he will have to break through the barriers of their contract and finally face the demons haunting his heart.

It had it's moments

As a rule, I rarely like novellas; they're too short. This one was just over five hours, and overall, I enjoyed the story. I even woke my husband by laughing out loud at a baby vomit moment. (Likely, only a parent would find it amusing ) I think the story could have easily been made into a novel and would have been better but, It was an enjoyable listen.

Ok , sweet but HOT!

I am loving this series. I loved Jill and Ryan so to hear her sister's story. Well it turned out to be so sweet. We didn't have the whole physical danger issue as we did in the other books but overall just a solid addition to the series. Ok now I need more not sure what I am going to do when this series is over. ..(sigh)

Perfect Read

I liked both Ashley and Keith and how they got together. I was a little confused at the mystery part. I loved Ashley and Keith together. I really liked Corinna and how she treated Ashley. I wonder if there will be a sequel to this. I would like to see how Ashley and Keith are together as a married couple. I would also love to see Keith with Ashley's daughter Emily. I also wonder if there will be a book about Corinna and Derrick I think that would be interesting.

Clunker

I love the Masters series, but this was a disappointing clinker. I've been spoiled by the other books in this series. It wasn't worth a credit or the cash price. I'm still looking forward to the next one but think I'll skip the novellas.
