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?
I love Shayla Black, I have read all 8 of the Wicked Lover Series, 6 of the Masters of Ménage Series and 3 of the Doomsday Brethren Series. She knows how to write sex also knows how to add angst, passion and excitement into a story. When I saw she was going to co-author One Dome to Love, I just had to have it.
One Dom To Love was an amazing read, and the writing was flawless. After I read the first page I was hooked and I could not put the book down. The characters are complex, intriguing and believable. I found myself wanting to know more and more about them. We are given three POV’s in this story and it just added more to the complexity of this story. I wasn’t prepared to meet and fall in love with these three amazing characters and each of their stories and fight. One Dom To Love is a story about Raine, Hammer and Liam.
Raine is a very complex and troubled character. She has very low self-esteem and is known for running when things get bad. Throughout the story Raines’ character evolves from someone that is helpless and needy to a woman who will not settle for less in her life. She becomes a woman who wants to be wanted, loved and cherished. Although she has a degree, she works at The Dungeon cleaning up the club and baking for the owner. Hammer rescued Raine from the alley behind the Dungeon years ago and has taken care of her. Raine has been in love with him but he treats her like she is a child.
Hammer’s character, is one that will make you scream and pull your hair out. He is the owner of the Dungeon and lives there along with Raine and other employees. Tragedy years ago changed him into the man he is today. He lives his life without love but he enjoys occasional sexual encounters with different submissives at the club. His needs are specific and demanding. He believes Raine is not capable of having the kind of dom/sub relationship that he’s looking for. He pushes Raine away every chance he gets but it is not because he doesn’t love her. He doesn’t feel like he is any good for her.
Liam has been Hammer’s best friend for years but has watched Hammer live with the guilt of his past and his neglect for Raine. Hammer pushing Raine away only ends up pushing her right into Liam’s arms. I can’t even tell you how much I fell in love with Liam (I have decided to go to Ireland). Liam thought by being there and nurturing Raine, Hammer would wake up and fight for her. The problem was, after one encounter with Raine and having her in his arms he falls in love with her. Since Hammer has no problem pushing Raine away Liam decides he’s going to collar the Lass and make her his.
Hammer is not prepared when he sees Raine in Liam’s arms and although he does not want a relationship with her he doesn’t want her with anyone else. Raine is caught between the two dominant men. Hammer the man she had loved for nearly 6 years and Liam the man who is ready to claim her as his.
There are some pretty steamy, erotic and hot scenes in this book. I swear to God these authors left me panting. The BDSM’s scenes were not over-done and did not make me cringe, in fact I wanted more! You will scream with things that go on between Hammer and Raine. You can feel the tension and love with them but Hammer made things so hard. Liam and Hammer’s relationship is put to the test because unlike Hammer, Liam knows what he wants and he is not afraid to risk it all for Raine. Who will Raine choose? Will Liam win Raine’s trust and heart? Will Raine wear Liam’s collar? Will Hammer finally go after Raine or will he loose her to his best friend Liam? Let me tell you, when I got to the end I needed more. I was so happy to see that the second book is out, and you can bet your butt I one-clicked that puppy.
