Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up falling for her himself.
When I picked up One Dom To Love I was really excited to begin reading it, the authors are some of my favorites because I know that they will leave me reaching for my husband and praying that the kids are asleep. So when I started reading it, I was in a way disappointed by the end. It’s not that it is poorly written, boring or just blah. I had an issue with Raine one that I thought I could overcome but couldn’t by the end of the book. (Mind you this is the first book in the series so I may come to like her in the next book, it is something that I will have to wait and see.) She was so extremely bratty and while I normally love reading about a submissive who has sass and knows how to use it, Raine at times acts like a toddler throwing a temper tantrum. She wants to be Hammer’s but she doesn’t have the slightest idea on how to even be submissive and then when a punishment sadly gets to an extreme she ends up with Liam.
Liam is Hammerr’s best friend and is also a Dom, he was trying to get Hammer to finally open his eyes up about Raine and his feelings but what he does just in a way goes against everything I have ever been taught in this lifestyle. Yes, he had good reasoning behind why and I totally get that but the way he reacts after finding out his scheme may have in one way worked but then quickly backfired not only hurt him but Raine and Hammer as well.
Was One Dom To Love a good read overall, yes it was. Was it at times extremely sexy? Yes. Was it at time angsty because of Raine and Hammer? Yes again. So while I am not fall down in love with One Dom To Love, I did enjoy it. Will I read the next book as well? It’s already on my kindle waiting for me to have a break to read it. I am interested in seeing where these three authors will take us on Raine, Liam and Hammer’s journey.
