Minnow Korsgaard works a dead end job to make ends meet. When she’s hired to take care of a wealthy old man with no social skills, she’s excited to have found work in her field.
The new boss isn’t at all what she expected.
Severin Leduc is only thirty. He’s also a dominant, tattooed brute who’s needs someone to break through the walls he’s built. The exiled son of a wealthy family, he’s unapologetically rude and eccentric. Raised by servants, he doesn’t want extra people in his life, let alone a pretty girl who refuses to leave him in peace.
Minnow’s submissive nature sparks against Severin’s dominance. Torrid sexual attraction flares between them. Sharing her with his best friend, Rodrigo, only strengthens their growing bond, and Severin’s life is scattered into chaos. Will he learn to trust her, or will he live the rest of his life forgotten?

The first thing I want to make known about this book, is there is always consent. There are some intense moments, but holy mother of fuck are they amazing. If this was picked up by a random person, it may come off as…well um intense but as I said there is consent, so intense consent! Sev is really easy to fall in love with, in a love that makes you want to choke him if you got close enough. There is stubborn and then there is Sev, which stubborn is putting it nicely and in a way that if he was standing in front of me would still allow me to sit the next day. However, as I progressed through the book it made sense, in a sad way. The sad that makes you want to hunt down all the piece of shit people in is life and kill them with paper-cuts so it’s slowly sort of death. Yes, that is how involved this book gets inside your head. The way you first meet him leaves you thinking, there is no way he has redeeming qualities, he is just a dick. I am not going to lie he is a dick, but a good dick (pun intended). If you get frustrated keep going, it isn’t one where the entire book you are wondering why the fuck is Minnow with him. She is also a submissive masochist, my kindred spirit, with a smart mouth and a backbone. I do love a little fight in my submissives in books, even ones that like that play jumprope with that line of being a bit of a brat. It’s easy to relate to. Minnow, man I feel bad for her school days, is a great character and one I could be friends with. At first you think one thing and then puzzle pieces fall into place and then you are ashamed at yourself for jumping to some conclusions. Well my conclusions weren’t bad but they weren’t right and she deserved better. She has been through so much, alone, that you can’t help but wonder why she always keeps trying. It’s hard to do things alone but do be alone because of how she was, that’s just amazing.
I also enjoyed that this book showed not everyone magically knows BDSM or even knows everything. I get super annoyed at BDSM books when the guy has had zero or little introduction but is a master of all things BDSM. No one knows everything and any character in a book that acts like that, I instantly stop reading. Sev doesn’t and is new in so many ways I’m not going to spoil. One of his most amazing character traits – he admits it. When he needs to he ask questions, he does research, he involves others to help, all things I love.
There are scenes in this book I wish I could say more about but for you to fully understand them and appreciate them, I won’t. However, I will say two words “nipple piercing.” Trust me when you get it, anytime anyone mentions those two words it will make you think of this book and make you all of the sudden very aroused. Sadly I am also currently a victim of edging because the next book doesn’t come out until September 19, 2017 and I need it now. So now I am all on edge and cursing the gods because it seems so far away to read more about Sev and yes of course Minnow, but more Sev…
