Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from Once Upon An Alpha 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".
Highly trained agent Mira Araceli can hold her own in the toughest situations, but not against her secret crush, Torin Carter. She'd fallen for her Hawkeye instructor years before. With his dark Irish good looks, unshakable integrity, and haunted blue eyes, he was everything she fantasized about. Unfortunately he never even glanced at her twice.
Torin's intense hunger for the new recruit shocked him. But as his student, the fierce and beautiful Mira was off-limits. And she was far too young and innocent for his carnal demands.
Now, when Hawkeye pairs them together for an undercover assignment, she discovers the dangerous side he was hiding. Is she strong enough to fight for their second chance? Or will the beautiful storm that is Torin Carter destroy her completely?

Torin Carter is all about reading people. Mira Araceli seems to be on edge. I liked how the author made her inquisitive. This way we can “follow” her around so she can get all the answers we need. You will want to watch out for all the heat because you could get burned. They both seem to love the same thing but they both seem to have demons. I felt we could see more of Torin’s where we’re told about Mira’s.
This may be a work of fiction but what the author has created seems very plausible. Torin is an alpha male both in his professional and personal life. Mira is good at hiding the fact that she wears her heart on her sleeve. She will show it to us but she’s had years of practice when it comes to her feelings. Our author does a great job in showing the tension that has built between our main characters. It was something that held my attention while they did both their job and how they handled the personal side of things. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the ending but all of a sudden it felt as if the story was rushed to get there. Will also be interested to see if this series is going to continue – no hint so in the meantime will have to check out some of the author’s other work.
Mira Araceli was utterly lovely, completely captivating. He wanted to please her again and again. Her orgasm had been as loud and unrestrained as the woman herself. Her passion ran deep. She was everything he wanted. All the things that scared the hell out of him.
Worse, he planned to fuck her senseless.
Which was complete madness.
Even if they didn’t plan on it, sex would cloud their working relationship. She fired a possessive streak in him. One that should bother him.
After unfastening her wrists and rubbing the skin to help restore circulation, he helped her back into her ridiculous gown and the annoying petticoats or whatever the hell they were called. He didn’t, however, return her thong.
“Stand still,” he said, working on the frustrating number of hooks and eyes.
The word rocked through him. Other submissives had referred to him by the honorific, but until now, it hadn’t sent a burst of possessiveness through him. He fumbled the next hook. “Who was the goddamn idiot who thought up this outfit?”
“I’ll ignore your rudeness. And in future, I’ll keep you naked.” His fingers were too big for the tiny metal clasps. In frustration, he skipped a few of them. Good enough.
They needed to debrief, but when he looked at her, her deep brown eyes were clouded. She wasn’t quite back all the way.
Araceli might consider herself tough, but she’d also just had a scene. No doubt endorphins were still swimming through her system.
He grabbed his jacket from the bench, then draped the soft leather bomber over her shoulders. Only then did he feed his belt back through the loops on his jeans.
Torin picked up the leash and considered attaching it. Because of her earlier reaction, he figured they should talk about it before he compelled her to wear it. He made it into a tighter loop and stuffed it in his back pocket.
Then he scooped up his little submissive and her numerous layers of clothing.
Frantically, she kicked her legs. “Sir!”
“Settle down or I’ll toss you over my shoulder.”
“You would, too!”
He carried her from the room. As he started down the stairs, she turned into him and wrapped her arms around his neck. There were ways to get her to behave without an argument.
She invites you to join her on a sensual journey where the limits are explored and expanded.
