Secrets….lots of secrets. Secrets that could destroy everything. That is one of the main themes in this outstanding erotic romance. But, even more interesting than the mysterious secrets are the interactions between Levi and Tori. They are hot and sometimes explosive. From a chance encounter to a BDSM club, their meetings range from sweet to hot and everything in between. The characters are interesting and multidimensional with past histories, families and friends. This fast paced story kept my interest and I had no desire to put it down. In fact, I can’t wait for the next book in this awesome series.
This is the second book in a series centered around Purgatory, a BDSM club. The owners are all related, by blood and by a secret that might destroy everything they hold dear. However, each book is a stand alone and can be read independently from each other. However, they do build on each other as far as the secret goes so for that aspect you might want to read the books in order. You’re going to want to read them all anyway because they are so good.
Levi left town 10 years ago but now it’s time to come back. He doesn’t expect to meet a cute little girl and her mom as soon as he gets in town and he sure doesn’t expect to find himself attracted to the mom. Tori is a single mom with big dreams. But she needs money to fulfill those dreams. To make money she works a variety of jobs, including being a professional Domme. Levi doesn’t plan on playing when he visits Purgatory, a BDSM club that he is part owner of, until he sees Cat, aka Tori. Levi is all Dom and he’s sure Tori isn’t really a Domme. He doesn’t get those vibes from her. Can Levi get her to submit? Tori doesn’t have times for games or heartbreak so Levi has a hard job in front of him.
In search of someplace to belong...
Levi Hawkins was a typical fun loving, hard partying college student with his whole life in front of him -- until one tragic night ripped his world apart and left him adrift with no home or family to return to. After a soul crushing stint in Afghanistan, he spent a decade wandering the globe searching for something or someone to make him whole again. Weary of regret and consumed by loneliness, he puts his heart on the line and turns to the only people still connected to him by blood.
He found an obsession...
A chance encounter at a lakeside café puts single mother Tori Ford directly in Levi's path and he's ready to stake a claim. She wants to keep her life simple. Work hard, raise her daughter, save some money and one day open the pie shop she's always dreamed of. She doesn't need complicated and she certainly doesn't need a wickedly hot Dominant to take control of her future. Except when he touches her she yearns for the pleasure and passion of submission. But Tori can't take another heartbreak and she can never trust Levi with her heart or her daughter if he won't open up about the darkness slowly consuming him.
