Lucia Roa needs a miracle to keep her fledgeling event planning business from going under. When she gets word about the opportunity of a lifetime to do a Valentine's Day party for an elite club in Washington D.C. she jumps at the chance, only finding out that the party isn't for just any club, it is for the premier private BDSM club, Wicked. Desperate for a chance to make the social and professional connections that this job would offer, she agrees to a most unconventional business arrangement with the handsomest man she's ever met.
CEO Isaac O'Keefe swore off relationships years ago after having his heart broken and his bank account emptied by his gold digging first wife. He thought he'd managed to keep his heart under lock and key, but when Lucia walks into his office he is instantly drawn to the fiery beauty in a way he's never felt before. He convinces Lucia to take the position as event planner for Wicked's Valentine's Day Party, but in order to make the event a success, something he needs to happen to secure his place on the board at Wicked, he must give her a crash course at all the dark pleasures BDSM has to offer.
What starts out as a business partnership quickly turns into something more as Lucia breaks down every wall around his heart without even trying. Isaac must then make a choice, push Lucia away and continue to live a safe, but lonely life, or open himself up again to the greatest pain and pleasure in the world... Love.
I become a fan of Mrs Mayburn after reading Dreamer of Chosen by the Gods series. When I saw she released new a Erotic Contemporary Romance series, I know I have to check it out. And boy was I glad. I stayed up late finished this book, because it was quite a page turner. I found myself laughing out loud several times, because it was funny. I know not everyone is a fan of BDSM, but no worries, that part was actually very light.
Lucia Roa is an event planner that needs a big break, when she got an interview to do a Valentine’s Day party for an elite club in the city, she knows this is her chance. However, when she met the person who is in charge of the event, CEO Isaac O’Keefe, she wonders what she really got herself into. When Isaac O’Keefe first set his eyes on Lucia, he knows one way or another he has got to have her. Even if he swore off relationships long ago.
Wicked is one of the oldest private BDSM club in the city, and to plan this event, Lucia have to learn about BDSM style, with Isaac is being her Master. It all started out as a business partnership, but the attraction between Lucia and Isaac have quickly turned into something that neither of them are sure if they are ready for.
The actual BDSM elements in this book were very light, and I thought the story of Lucia and Isaac were really sweet and sexy.
Lucia was smart, and has a strong personality, even though she knows Isaac would be breaking her heart, she still couldn’t help falling in love. She also pushes his boundaries helped him facing his inner self.
Isaac was charming and confidence, expect when it comes to love. I very much enjoy reading his inner dialogs, although he could act quite a jerk sometimes.
If you are looking for something light, fun and sexy, definitely check this book out.
