When former Marine, Connor Ortega, was ordered into the offices of Crest Security Agency on a Saturday morning, he didn't expect the latest case to hit so close to home. A submissive has been murdered in a particularly vicious manner and to bring her killer to justice, he must go undercover. Not hard to do considering he's already part of the BDSM lifestyle.
Lauren Bailey, a local vendor of bejeweled erotic implements, lives vicariously through her clients due to her fear of bondage. When Connor's dominant side can't resist trying to ease her anxieties, she accepts his proposal and agrees to his one stipulation...keep things casual.
When the killer sets his sights on Lauren, Connor is forced to rethink their relationship. He has the training it takes to catch a murderer, but does he have the courage to escape his inner demons and capture Lauren's heart?

There are some books that when you finish them, you just have to write the review, and this baby is certainly one of them. I am new to Kennedy’s work, but LAWD am I an instant fan with this book!! Those that know me well know I’m not a huge romantic suspense reader. But it’s an understatement to say I couldn’t put this book down for anything. Everything around me went on the back burner until I hit the end!! Every single one of the characters in this book just grabs a hold of you, and it isn’t just the main story line. This agency has so many great characters, that I have no doubt that each new book will be truly incredible. This series centers on the Crest Security Agency. An agency filled with former military men and women, most of them being Marines. As the sister of a Marine, I have a little bit of knowledge of the Marine Corps, and you can definitely tell that Kennedy cares about representing them correctly and getting her facts right. Having her own retired Marine might just help that along.. hehehe..
Connor Ortega is an amazingly complex dominant male. He is still reeling from his recent breakup, and is truly not expecting that this case he is currently working to bring him in contact with one woman who will truly shake up his world. Connor’s one of those characters that you just find yourself falling for, and wanting to slap him on the back of the head at the same time. He brings out all of these emotions when dealing with Lauren.
I absolutely love when a writer has a submissive that has a strong back bone, and shows readers that just because a person is submissive it doesn’t mean they are “weak”. Lauren doesn’t give Connor and inch, and he has to be on his toes when dealing with her. Her submission doesn’t come easy to him. He has to not only work to get her to even give him a chance, but also to help her overcome an issue from the past that blocks her.
I love books like this, the ones that make you sad to see them end. These characters literally had me tied down, and would not let go. I wanted to follow them long after their happily ever after. I guess that is the former soap opera fan in me. I’m excited to get my hands on the next installment of this series!! I hope y’all love this book as much as I have, because I honestly think it is a must read!!!
Look to the future : deal with the past.
