Everyone makes mistakes in life. Unfortunately, Holly Richards has become an expert at taking the wrong path in life. This time, she may have gone so far that she has alienated the one person who has always been there for her. Will she be able to make the right decision for once in her life?
Tommy Reed’s world shifted the night he found Holly Richards lying in a pool of blood on the ground. For reasons he can’t explain, he feels the need to protect Holly from her own past. In the process, he’s hoping to also teach her that there is more to D/s than releasing pent up emotions.
Life isn’t easy for the former-junkie and the cop. Some of those closest to Tommy are less than thrilled with his devotion to Holly. Those who pressured Holly into her former life are worried she’ll share what she knows. Is there any way for both of them to come away from the situation unscathed?

Wow! This book was not at all as I expected. Let me start by saying that I started this book without first reading Unexpected Angel and that was my first mistake. I felt, after the first chapter like I was missing something important and that was my own fault. But I kept going because there's something about Tommy that drew me in. Plus I needed to know what Holly was really going to do with herself.
The book starts off in a hospital setting and Tommy is talking to a comatose Holly like they're friends even though they haven't met. Immediately I'm intrigued. Who are these people to each other and why is this strong sexy cop so devoted to this strange criminal?
The questions kept coming.
There are some pretty intense scenes throughout this entire story but I was riveted to the very end simply because the author has a way of getting the reader involved.
Holly's past is full of tumultuous events that eventually lead her to the one person willing to help her overcome hardships. And Tommy...oh the DOM! God love him ♡
Eventually I got my answers and even some tingles in my belly:
Maybe I don't deserve him, but for this moment, I'm going to let him make that decision.
"You have molded me into the woman I am."
Tommy shakes his head. "No, you did all of that. The only thing I did was refuse to give up on you and I would do it a thousand times if my reward is having you with me."
“Spanking,” I say, my voice barely audible.
“What was that? You need to speak up.”
“I want you to spank me,” I whisper a little bit louder. I don’t recognize my strained voice.
“Spanking how? You said you weren’t into pain, but now you’re saying you want me to spank you. Do you mean lightly, teasing you as I run my fingers through your pussy. Or are you willing to let me push you to your limit, spanking you hard with my bare hand or possibly a belt, thrusting my fingers into your throbbing core until you come so hard your juices are dripping down your thighs?”
Hearing him list the different ways he could turn my ass red brings my body to life. I feel myself growing wetter with every suggestion, not wanting but needing to feel the sensations he describes.
“I want that,” I admit meekly. As I sit next to him, our bodies barely touching, I resist the urge to climb into his lap, pushing fabric to the side and taking what I need at this moment. “I need you to show me that pain can be pleasure.”
“Are you sure?” He asks sincerely. “I can respect the fact that you said you don’t want pain. I won’t lie and say I don’t enjoy inflicting it to an extent, but if that’s not something you crave, it won’t be fun for either of us.”
I look him in the eye, wanting him to see and feel the sincerity of my words. “You might be the only man I have ever trusted enough to explore that with.”
He wraps his arms around me, nearly pulling me off my stool. “I’m honored that you feel that way, babygirl. What else?” He urges me to continue. I shift in my seat, feeling a damp spot forming in my panties. If the thought of him doing these things to me affects me so deeply, I’m going to be slipping over myself when he’s actually touching my body.
