Tessa had always been curious about BDSM but never tried it and repressed her sexual fantasies, becoming a sex therapist and helping others with their problems. She one day wanders into a BDSM club and meets Jared, the owner who has shied away from any personal attachments, but he wants Tessa. They Make an arrangement to become Dominant and submissive for 1 month. No-strings attached. Together Jared gets the Dominant sex he's looking for and Tessa the submissive experience she's seeking. But neither of them expect to find love along the way.
I loved this short story! It was well written and had some sizzling heat between the two characters. I found myself fanning my face a few times with the racy, erotic BDSM scenes. But I was rooting for the relationship that was budding between Tessa and Jared, both of them finding it difficult to get past their pride to admit their feelings for one another. I'd definitely read more stories from Scarlett Sanderson as her book flows along with much more than just the erotica. It has wonderful characters!
Tessa fantasizes about being tied up and tantalized with pleasure. She longs for a man to take control, to drive her wild with lust. But she's never been able to let go and indulge in her most taboo desires.
The second Jared sees Tessa, he wants her. Her fierce intelligence and repressed sensuality call to him, make him burn with a passion he hasn't felt in years.
Jared offers Tessa a deal-for a month, they'll play a game of dominance and submission. He'll make her beg, make her moan, make her come harder and faster than she ever has before. In return? He just wants great sex. No strings attached. But when he can't get enough of Tessa's scent, her taste, her touch, he realizes what he really wants is her love.
