Story Overview:
With subs being murdered at a Miami BDSM club, experienced dominant Agent Seth Wilkinson must find his own submissive to “entice” a killer. When he’s paired with Agent Baker Daley he wonders just how much a straight man can fake.

Baker Daley knows he can “play the part”; he just needs a chance to prove it to Wilkinson. Being a straight man should have no bearing when his Domme has trained him well in the practice and lifestyle of submission. After all, this is just a job, right?

One scene. One intuitive Dom. One sassy sub. The game is afoot…in more ways than one.

As passions ignite and both men grapple with their internal desires, the mission begins to heat up. In a race against time, confusion and danger, they may just discover the greatest threat is to their hearts.

My Review:
Ooh, this was a good book. I've never read this author so I really wasn't sure what to expect going in. I just knew that another blogger that I follow had recommended it and the story line really appealed to me. 

I was NOT disappointed. 

The book is about a private contract agency that's been tasked to figure out who is murdering gay men attending a BDSM club. The agent who is the Dom, Seth, is looking for a submissive agent to take in undercover with him to act as bait. Baker ends up being that agent. Baker is an experienced sub, but he's straight, not gay...the only real issue with this pairing. 

But you know, this is a romance novel, so that will be overcome. And dang, it was sexy getting there. I liked this book a LOT. The couple was dynamic and the action was non-stop from start to finish both in the development of their relationship and the sexual activity. 

My one complaint (and the reason my rating is an A- rather than an A) is that there were a few key scenes that seemed to get overlooked. They were in the book...passively...when the characters thought about what happened in them (like several trips to the club), but it was always after the fact and I felt like we'd missed out on some of the deeper emotions that could have come through those scenes.

But overall, it was a FANTASTIC book. I definitely won't think twice about reading this author again. From page one, this story captured my imagination and I didn't put it down until I finished the story. 

I definitely recommend it.
