Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Star Angels Promo and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Brix Johnson is the kind of guy a girl brings home to meet her parents.
The reserved intellect.
The handsome boy next door.
The wealthy yoga instructor.

He’s also the guy haunted by the mysterious woman who gave him the best sex of his life, yet refused to give him her name. With his bombshell no more than a memory, he does what any normal, sexually frustrated man would do ─ he returns to Indulgence.

At Indulgence, a yearly, invitation only, New Year’s Eve erotic masquerade party, Brix can shed his typical persona for one night, and be anyone he wants to be. Lucky for him, the women at Indulgence don’t require conversation. They simply want hardcore sex. But when his past sneaks into his fantasy, can he cope with reality or will he walk away from pure satisfaction?


My Thoughts:

Brix Johnson needs a boost in the self-confidence department.  The sad part is that he feels he has to create a persona in order for that to happen.  He constantly suffers because he puts himself in the same space as a woman he lusts after.  It’s nice to see he has a friend in Autumn and that she wants to see him happy.  He wants her to be happy as well.  You expect all males to be self-assured alphas but Brix reminds the reader that that’s not always the case.

The author could have left Brix trying to reinvent himself into something he’s not but then she adds in “Cedar”.  There seems to be some type of connection that you will have to explore.  Scenes are steamy and not for the shy.  What I found interesting is that we have a book that is told from a man’s point of view written by a woman.  She could have taken the easy way and had the story written from the female’s perspective.  I would think that it would be a little harder from Brix’s angle since we all know how hard it is to understand a man but I think the author has pulled it off.  Toward the end, Brix has an interesting conversation with Aspen - it certainly had me taking notice. 

Endings can be happy and they can be sad then we have this one.  It left me hanging, which is a good thing because I want to know what’s going to happen to this characters.  It’s like reading a soap opera.  The twists and turns of the scenes leave you wanting more – and the sex ain’t bad either.  You don’t have to have the first book read in order to enjoy this one.  But at some point you should try and get it read so that you can understand who these people are and how they got to their place in this book.

The crop cracked against my hip. It was so sudden and while I didn’t really feel anything, the sound caused me to jerk against my restraints. “Are you all right?” she asked, sounding sincere.

“Yes, mistress.”

She drifted the crop back down to my crotch. “Now, I will not inflict any pain here.” She swirled the tip of the crop around my penis. “But that doesn’t mean I won’t tease.”

Another crack against my thigh and I damn near bounced out of my skin. The posters of the bed jerked at my reaction, but I remained unmoved. Back and forth the crop kissed my skin. My thighs burned yet my cock grew harder. I winced at the sting yet ached with need. Her strikes weren’t hard at all. Nothing like I’d seen in porn or read about in books. No, she was being gentle. Gearing me up. And it was working.

Just when I thought I might not be able to handle much more, she landed one final blow to my thigh and then rubbed the crop along the burn. “Not even a shout or a hiss. I’m proud of you. You’re a natural.”

My chest inflated with pride. I hadn’t even realized I’d held my tongue.

Cedar returned the crop to the drawer and moved to the bed where she straddled my hips. “What is it that you want?” she demanded. “Be clear and frank with me.”

I lay there, unable to move, feeling her hot pussy against my stomach and all I could think of was,

“I want you to own me.”
