The New York Times bestselling author of Call on Me invites you to discover the thrill of control as one couple wrestles for power in and out of the bedroom…
Samantha Dunbar needs to forget Gibson Andrews. When he trained her to be a domme, she experienced just how hot things could get with the sexy executive. She was ready to hand him everything—including her heart. But Gibson backed away, declaring them incompatible. He’s a dominant, and Sam’s no submissive.
But after an attack shakes Sam to her core, Gibson tracks her down at her family’s rundown farmhouse and makes her an offer. He’ll stay the week and be hers in every way—a helping hand for the renovation and a willing lover in her bed. He swore he’d never give up control to anyone again, but he hasn’t been able to touch another woman since Sam. Maybe a week alone with her will cure him of his relentless craving.
But one taste only makes them want more, and Sam and Gibson are drawn in deeper than ever. The man who won’t give in has just met the girl who won’t give up…
I get so freaking giddy every time a Roni Loren book shows up on my iPad. With the Loving on the Edge series, Ms. Loren has quickly become one of my favorite erotic romance authors out there. With every new book, she gives us page after page of sexy goodness mixed with an emotional pull that you can’t get rid of, nor would you want to. Sam and Gibson’s story was incredible. I pretty much say that with all of these characters, but Sam and Gibson’s push/pull relationship just gutted me, made me crave their happily ever after right away.
Loren switches it up for us in her latest installment of the series. We get a sneak peek into the Domme psyche with Sam. Some romance readers and avid fans of BDSM romances might be turned off by this, but I’m begging you to stick with it. Believe me, I LOVE it when I get a romance about a big tough, possessive Dom and the gorgeous, sassy submissive that ends up bringing him to his knees. This is different, but NO LESS beautifully erotic. Gibson’s struggle to surrender to Sam was heartbreaking. I just wanted to shake him a couple of times. But when it finally happened, you could hear angels singing along with a long drawn out swoony sigh from me. These characters definitely stuck with me. Their deep connection struck a cord in my heart and made this romance what it was…simply stunning.
This was a novella, so it was a quick and enticing read. Even though it was short, it was full of intense and passionate scenes. There was plenty of emotion, so many feels, and during some scenes, I felt like I was holding my breath the whole way through. Some previous characters came to play in this installment which made it even more enjoyable and memorable for me. Funny, sexy, erotic, with a dash of angst, Roni Loren hit another home run with BREAK ME DOWN. If you are looking for an auto-buy author, you need to check out Roni Loren’s work. Believe me when I say, you WILL NOT be disappointed.
