Jack Gordon is a highly successful real estate agent, a womanizing man whore and a repressed but it’s like he can’t stop himself from being that way. Jack slowly lets his repressed Dominate side out with Sarah but quickly stores it away again because he was hurt badly by the woman he loved in his past and hasn’t wanted to explore that side of himself in a long time. Jack keeps screwing things up even after he tells Sarah he wants more and that he is falling for her too. Sarah finally walks away after Jack is caught in a compromising situation after he says that Dominate. Sarah Thornton is an up and coming yet already highly successful real estate agent for the same company as Jack. Sarah has recently been burned by a client who was engaged to another woman and basically begins to concentrate completely on her job as a real estate agent. Jack and Sarah end up working on a sale together, Jack for the seller and Sarah for the buyer, which leads to Jack and Sarah hooking up even though she is aware of his womanizing ways. Emails, phone calls and text messages from Jack are usually a combination of work and personal which are almost always sexual related. Sarah attempts to keep her emotions out of the equation but begins to fall in love with Jack. Jack is a typical asshole after he is done messing with Sarah she can trust him. Jack finally steps up with the grand gesture but it might just be too late for their relationship.
When I started this book I thought that Jack would be more Dominate towards Sarah and use that side of him to earn her submission, but that wasn’t the case at all. I think I would have liked the story better if she either didn’t even bring BDSM into the storyline or actually made the story a BDSM one. In my opinion her barely touching on the subject took away from Jack and Sarah’s relationship. It was almost like she couldn’t decide whether or not to use BDSM in the story but wanted it there too. Also the side characters could have had more elaboration. I am hoping that the second book will expand more on everyone’s stories and that Jack will stop acting like a kid in the candy store and get his act together but I have my doubts. I like bad boy characters who have pasts but Jack’s constant man whoring got on my nerves, either settle down or don’t but if you aren’t going to stop then let Sarah go. Sarah needed to stand her ground with him too. I am going to keep an open mind when I start the second book in this series that the author will mesh everything and it will be an even better book than this one.
