Cali is a 44 year old divorcee from a sexless marriage that she feels is her fault. She went unfulfilled for years, unable to realize her desire to have a man take total control in the bedroom. As a woman who controlled everything in her life, she wants a man who will dominate her and do every naughty thing she's researched. So she signs up for the most exclusive BDSM club in the twin cities. The Den is run by three men, Deklan, Seth and the youngest, Jake.
Jake is asked to take a second look at her application and take her on a tour of the club. He reluctantly agrees until he meets her and finds out that she's exactly what he needs in a sub to spark his waning interest. He plans on leaving in 3 months anyway, so this just may be what he needs to pass the time. But he soon finds that Cali is more than he bargained for, and he makes her his exclusive sub.
Cali finds herself getting addicted to Jake, but she's petrified about her family, especially her daughter, and friends finding out. But she can't stop herself from returning to Jake again and again as she falls in love with him. Will their love be enough? Or will outside forces and internal struggles pull them apart?
This is book one in the Bonds Trilogy by Linda Aicher and I loved it. The next book in the series is Deklan and Kendra's story and I am rubbing my hands in anticipation! This book has wonderful writing with rich characters and thigh squeezing sex scenes! You have got to check this out!
After ending her passionless marriage, Cali Reynolds is eager to live out her forbidden fantasies. Her first step is attending new members' night at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town. Perhaps here she can find a man who understands her desire to be dominated…
At first, Jake McCallister thinks Cali has come to his club for the wrong reasons. But when he discovers she is seeking fulfillment after years of denial, he's intrigued—and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she's been missing.
Her first encounter with Jake is everything Cali has always craved, and more; she's not prepared for the feelings he inspires in her. And Jake is just as surprised by his overwhelming attraction to Cali. As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now, Jake doesn't want anyone but Cali—but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever? (78,000 words)
