The Cress brothers from All Chained Up and On Your Knees are back.
Ana knows she’s a submissive but hasn’t ever found a real Dominant. Bad boys had never lived up to their reputations and most Doms had turned out to be nothing more than bullies. When her longtime friend Max surprises her by turning her over his knee for the spanking she’s always wanted, her body explodes with long-repressed desire.
Max knows it’s time to stop hiding his lifestyle from Ana. It might destroy their friendship but he can’t watch her destroy herself instead. He offers to temporarily train her then help her find a Dom. But now that she’s kneeling at his feet, they both discover exactly what she’s needed all these years. Max’s mastery will be much more than temporary.
When Max finally decides that he has had enough of Ana flitting from one bad relationship to another he puts it all on the line. Can their friendship stay strong when he reveals his secret or will he lose Ana for good this time?
I adored Max. So far he is my favorite Cress brother. He loves Ana with all his heart and is willing to put that heart on the line when he offers her a chance to live out her fantasies. Each of the brother’s books is full of emotions and this book has it in spades. Max is a great man and a wonderful Dom and it shines through in all he does with Ana. Not only must the two find their way through their emotions and past their fear of losing their friendship but they also must deal with a sadistic man who thinks that abuse is what the D/s lifestyle is all about. I enjoyed watching their new relationship blossom into what can only be called love and seeing that love tested made for a great read. Seeing the other brothers and their wives come to the aid of the couple was a beautiful touch, especially during the traumatic club scene.
I am enjoying my visits into the world of the Cress family and hope to keep coming back for more.
