Damien is a DEA agent and a Dom. When attending a retreat at House Surrender he is enamored with a blonde beauty. Poppy is a switch, and when she meets tall dark and handsome, she wants to play. After an intense and erotic scene, Damien is called away and fails to provide the aftercare that was the most important part of their agreement. Trust was broken and it seemed to be the end, but the stubborn Damien refuses to give up on the woman who has gotten under his skin.
Damien and Poppy are both very complicated. Poppy doesn’t know much about relationships. Damien is basically married to a dangerous job. There are differences in their sexual preferences as well. Damien is pure Dom, and as alpha as they come, but Poppy is a switch. She has never fully submitted to anyone, and Damien doesn’t have a submissive bone in his body. You would think it would be too much complication and aggravation to try to follow through with any kind of relationship, but the chemistry between them is too strong.
This is the first book I have read by Bristol, and I was impressed. As I was reading I could predict the general ending, but that made no difference. Bristol baited me with the ability to tell a good story, and the growth and personalities of her characters. I couldn’t help but care for them. Bristol gives readers a heady mixture of sex and drama. I can’t wait for more from Sidney Bristol!
