The USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin novels kicks off a deeply sensual new series by introducing readers to Micah, a man who takes what he wants—until he meets the one woman he needs.
Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. He keeps his dark side hidden away from the press, who will chase down any hint of scandal. He’s always in command of his world, careful to expose his closely guarded secrets only to those he knows he can trust. Then Allie Bennett shakes his legendary discipline. She’s beautiful, pure, untainted. But is Micah willing to sacrifice her innocence for his own selfish obsessions?
When that sexy smile makes her body burn, Allie tries with all her might to ignore it. For one thing, Micah’s her new boss. For another, he’s as complicated as he is devastatingly handsome. Still, Allie can only fight so much before she gives in to his dangerous games. She knows he’s got dark secrets. But when she discovers the true depth of his pain, Allie must decide how far she’s willing to go to light the way for love.
Bound Beneath His Pain is intended for mature audiences.

Hot "Gentleman's Dom"
I have read a number of books by this author and this one does not disappoint. This is a spin off series of this author's Club Sin series. Micah recently bought out the real estate agent where Allison works. She is offered a position in his company, which she takes. There is definitely an instant connection between these two. You can almost feel it. <icha is part of the Dominant's council (DC); four men who are friends who each own their own sex club. I found this to be a very tame version of BDSM. Yes it is mentioend but there are not scenes in any of the clubs. In fact, Micah is referred to as a "Gentlman's Dom". Hence, this was gentle book about BDSM. Don't get me wrong, Micha is definitelya powerful, alpha male. Allision is a strong, configent, and successful woamn. I like this author's style of writing. The charaters are strong, independent individuals. Theya re liebable, relatable, well developed and over all good. The story flows easily and the dialogue back and froth is straight-foward and realistic. This is the typical angst but it is not overly done and way out there. It makes snese to the story. The secret that was alluded to that Micah had ws not very earth shattering. It was a little anticlimactic when finally found out what it is was. I had to ask myself was that all there was to it. However, that did not make me like the book any less. While there is not a cliffhanger, it does end with a look at what the next book is going to be about and I can't wait to read it.
