I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

Story Overview:
The Pact of Seduction has one rule—fulfill your ultimate fantasy. Bella’s problem, she can’t live up to her vow. But her failure spins events that lead her into unknown territory. Kole, a Dom at the sex club Castle Dolce Vita, wasn’t part of her fantasy, but he’s about to show her he should have been.

Kole is more than willing to introduce Bella to BDSM since he’s held an interest in her for some time. But the feisty woman isn’t easily tamed and her strong personality proves to be difficult. While she might be determined to keep him at a distance, Kole has other ideas. He won’t allow her to shut him out.

A pact between best friends brought them together, emotional barriers tear them apart. Kole skillfully reminds Bella through pleasure and punishment that she is now his submissive, and her place is under his command.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.

My Review:

Kole is a hard Dom. He has high expectations and limits for his subs. Bella is a headstrong, willful woman, but he's drawn to and fascinated by her. He sees a submissive in her. Her secret fantasies tell her that he's probably right, but she's worked hard to become the strong woman that she is. She's not sure she trusts him to break down those barriers. It makes for a really sexy, hot erotic read as they go through this journey together.

For both of these characters, there is a lot riding on this experimental relationship. At first it's just a mutual sexual fascination, but emotions get wrapped up in the scene rather quickly and that just makes it more confusing as they explore this new place for them. Personally, I loved how much emphasis was placed on the emotions in this story. For both of them, this relationship means a lot, but it's not about purely sexual feelings. Their emotions are most definitely involved too. I thought Stacey did that side of the story really well. For Bella, she's not used to this scene and her past disappointments with men cloud everything. I liked that their mutual epiphany took place out of the bedroom/dungeon. That was a good little twist to the story. 

A lot of times in BDSM, you don't see the sweet moments with the Dom. You tend to see caring, but it's usually in a sexual sense. I like that there were several really tender moments with Kole that had nothing to do with sex at all. He's really a sweet, caring guy and he genuinely loves and cares about Bella and where she's at. He wants this to work, but not at the detriment of her.

I missed the first book in this series. I need to go read it whenever I get a break in my reading schedule, because I like this group of friends. They've made a pact to live out their fantasies. I'm definitely ready to read the final two stories in the series if they are going to be as hot and sexy as this one was.
