She didn’t know what she wanted until he made her beg for it...
Morgan O’Malley has seen a lot of kinky things as the hostess of a cable sex talk show. But she’s never met a man like Jack Cole before. A self-proclaimed dominant, he’s as alpha as a male can get–and good for Morgan to have around when an obsessed stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her.
Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what’s more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it–and starts to crave his masterful touch. A willing player in Jack’s games, Morgan knows that his motives aren’t pure, but she has no idea how personal they are…

Have you ever wanted to put yourself in the hands of a man whose sole purpose is to give you pleasure?”

That’s how it starts. Great, right? Promising. Well, even so, i had major problems with it and i’ll tell you all about it.
First thing’s first. Morgan & Jack.
She has a tv show about sex and a crazy stalker. He is a dominant who accepted to be interviewed by her for her show. They meet and bullets start flying around their hands. He takes her to his very private house in the middle of a swamp, to keep her safe. And since he’s a dominant and a major turn on alpha-male, you can imagine what happens next.

Now, my problems about the whole thing.

  1. She. She broke up with her fiancé because she wanted a different sex life. She had tons of fantasies that she dreamed about for a long time and when she trusted him enough to tell him all about them, he called her depraved and a whore. Therefore, she was convinced something’s really wrong with her and she should never ever admit she wants to be dominated, tied or in a threesome with two men. But she finds the perfect man in Jack. He tries to convince her for more than half of the book that he can fulfill ALL her fantasies and desires. He even proves her that even if her mouth say no, her body says a big fat yes. So what does she do? She goes back and forth, saying no when we all see that she wants to says yes, she doubts herself, calls herself depraved and whore because of that prick of an ex and she’s constantly splitting hairs. I rolled my eyes so much, i thought i’d go blind or something. She got on my nerves really bad.
  2. HIM. Again with the lying and manipulation and everything. If you read the book, you’ll see what I mean. I hate this kind of guys, really. Besides rape, I don’t think there’s something worse than lying and manipulation. Or I can’t think of it right now. 🙂
  3. The story being told in third person. Not my cup of tea. I rarely found an author really good at this kind of writing.

Now, the sex part was off the charts. I admit it. But again, that’s not enough for a 5 ★ book.
Either way, I might continue the series, because I’m really curious about Deke and I didn’t actually hate it, so remind me to read part 2 sometimes soon. 🙂
