Blurb:  All Malachi wanted was to forget about the shit-show they’d all just endured with Victor and Nicholas and spend the rest of his life with the love of his life…Megan.

That’s what he thought he wanted.

What he found out was that giving up his desire to be a Dom isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and Megan isn’t about to pretend like she is sexually submissive. Not gonna happen! They love each other tremendously but just need another…addition to their party of two. Malachi needs an obedient, quiet, and trained male submissive to fulfill the Dom inside of him. Megan needs a submissive that has enough experience to help her through her learning curve in the BDSM lifestyle.

That isn’t what either of them gets.

Enter Justice Conners. He’s the opposite of everything they wanted…but is he just what they both needed?


Review: I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Wait for Me. The dynamic was a bit different with the man subbing to the woman, which is one aspect that drew me in. It was a nice change up. So, after enjoying that one as much as I did, I was eager to read this installment which centered around Malachi, quite an interesting character we met in Wait for Me.

Malachi was quite involved in that book. He was intertwined with the sex traffickers and the rescue of Jasper, etc. I recommend reading that book to really get the whole story behind who he is in this book. He is now in a relationship with Megan, who we also met in Wait for Me. They fell in love, but, unfortunately, they are both dominant sexually and have been trying to work things out in that regard.

Meanwhile, we have Justice, a young ladies man who, realizing he has not been able to really find fulfillment, makes the unfortunate decision to pay a woman to dominate him. Before he gets the opportunity to find out if that is what he needs, things go terribly wrong, and he ends up a key witness to a case. His FBI father employs Malachi to keep Justice safe until the trial.

Justice and Malachi are a bit like oil and water at first, but it doesn’t take long for Justice to get under Malachi’s skin. Eventually, Mal begins to see a bit of a submissive in Justice. At the same time, he and Megan realize that Justice might be exactly what they need – a sub for them to share. So, Mal goes forward with the plan to sort of ease Justice into the whole scene. Justice is reluctant at first about being with a man, but he can’t deny Mal is giving him the peace he has been craving.

I loved Justice. He was a bit mouthy, snarky, sexy little devil. But he also has some major issues from his childhood. He suffers from a disorder directly related to how he was treated for the first 8 years of his life. So, he is a bit damaged, but really just looking for actual love and affection.

I loved watching the relationship between the three of them grow, even with the miscommunications that caused problems. They all had a very easy dynamic that really worked when they were all clear about their feelings. While most of the focus here is on Mal and Justice, there are some really good scenes with Megan as well.

The story moves along at a good pace with good dialog and many hot scenes. There was action and a bit of mystery/suspense, and it was great seeing the other characters involved as well. There were some things that happened a little too quickly, or that seemed a bit too repetitive, but I really enjoyed the overall story and loved the characters. I’m a fan of this series and look forward to the next installment.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
