Story Overview:
British Agent Drake Steele never thought when he was hired on at the Serious Organised Crime Agency that his job would involve spanking a co-worker. But when the colleague is Lord Robbie Covington, the sexy red-headed computer hacker for SOCA and MI-6, Drake can't agree fast enough to pop Robbie's cherry and pull him into the sensual world of BDSM.

Now they are caught up in a web of lies as they pose as members of the jet-setting crowd. Drake and Robbie have to race against the clock to stop a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of all Europe. As their covers begin to fade and danger is closing in, protecting Robbie is Drake’s most important task, but neither man is ready for the moment when their hearts are put on the line.


My Review:
This was a book I bought completely on a whim and after reading the first 10% of it on Amazon. I am so glad that I bought it because it was a great book. (And don't worry that this is number 2 in the series....you will never miss the fact you didn't read number 1.)

The set-up on this book is great just because Robbie is so clueless about what he's getting into. He just knows that he wants Drake and this is the perfect way to get him. The problem is that sass gets him into a load of trouble and hurt when they are at a BDSM party where other Dom's have certain expectations for how a proper sub needs to act.

It made for a brilliant set-up just because Drake is such a good Dom. He's trying to protect Robbie, maintain the mission, AND ignore the fact that he really, really wants Robbie. You see where the set-up of this book is going....this book had an amazing mix of sexual chemistry and build-up and tension. It made for such a fun read. 

I love how rebellious Robbie is...he really chafes against someone telling him what to do, even while he's incredibly turned on by being dominated. It was a great mix. He's also just a great character. So sweet and charming...at the same time, he has a sweet innocence to him that Drake is trying to protect. Drake is a natural Dom and is trying so hard not to give into that lure that Robbie presents, but Robbie just continues to push. Yeah, it was really hot!

I liked that Drake kept trying to put the mission and the fact that they have to work together in front of them, although it was completely useless as a deterrent. He's this big, tough alpha, but when it comes down to it, he's a marshmallow and can't stand the idea of hurting Robbie. I just loved them together. 

I also really liked that the book went beyond the mission. A lot of books never do that and then you wonder how the relationship will react without all the adrenaline pushing the limits. This book answered that question....and did it beautifully. Like I said, I just really enjoyed this one!
