After a bad breakup, Joss O’Neil decides to throw caution to the wind and do something out of the ordinary – have a one night stand. Maddox Hunt, a man who refuses date, let alone let love in, gives Joss the release she’s looking for. One year later, not only are they still reminiscing over that one night, they now find themselves working together at the same Seattle PD precinct. She’s a rookie cop and he’s her commanding Lieutenant. With the memory still lingering, neither one can resist the obvious attraction they have for one another. And since neither of them want a relationship, Maddox comes up with a “friends with benefits” plan to scratch each other’s itch. Unfortunately, it all needs to remain a secret due to the PD’s no fraternization rule.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I have to say, I LOVED it! It is nothing short of hot, steamy and sexy. I thought the characters were well developed (the chemistry was felt right from the beginning), the storyline was interesting and the sex was off the charts! The author knew what she was doing when she was writing her kink. I needed a fan and a cigarette after reading those scenes. And just so you know, it’s 30 degrees here and I don’t smoke.
Maddox is a Dom with a kinky bdsm side. He’s the perfect combination of dominance, sexiness and compassion. Joss is strong-willed, caring and puts all her trust in Maddox. Even though she no longer conforms to what a man wants, she loves being dominated and playing Sub to Maddox’s Dom. It’s a rush like she’s never experienced before.
Maddox’s best friend, Grey, and Joss’ best friend, Emilia, add fun banter to the story. They also see through this “sex only” relationship that Maddox and Joss agree to. Grey and his mother, who adds more comedy to the story, throw out hints for Maddox let go of his past issues & let things naturally unfold between them.
I did not want to put this book down once I started it. This story will not disappoint and I give it 4.5 buckles!!
