20641117[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 264 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

In Lea Griffith’s Loveswept debut, a novel that’s perfect for erotic romance readers, two lovers who have shared exquisite pain and unforgettable bliss find solace back in each other’s arms.

Jeremiah Copeland and Daly Edwards have a history. Even though he grew up a criminal struggling to care for two younger siblings, and she’s the pampered daughter of a power-hungry senator, they formed a bond that nothing could break. Only a lack of trust ripped them apart.

Seven years later, Daly has reason to believe that Jeremiah’s brother is in trouble. She reaches out to Jeremiah the only way she knows how: at his BDSM club, The Underground. But one look ignites a heat she thought had cooled forever. As Jeremiah takes control of her body once again, Daly quickly loses control of her carefully rebuilt world. Too much has never been enough between them, and as danger swirls in the shadows, Jeremiah forces Daly to recognize what has never changed: She still loves him. His command is that she return her heart—and he will make her obey.

Mindy’s Review:

Daly Edwards, being a strong and independent woman finally gets her life together and has a great job. When she finds a ring on her doorstep she knows she has to face the one person she never wanted to see again, and the only place to find him was at his BDSM club.

“When you baited Jeremiah Copeland, intentionally or not, he reacted with the single-minded intensity of a lion on the hunt.” 

Jeremiah Copeland is a very hot man but has lived in hell for three years waiting for the love of his life to return to him. He finally lives a criminal-free life and is only missing one thing…Daly.

Jeremiah and Daly have a long history and the only thing that came between them was Daly’s lack of trust. When Daly must face him again the flames between them instantly ignite. Jeremiah being her former Dom knows how to get her back into bed but he has a very hard time getting her to surrender her heart fully to him again. He is unable to say the three words she wants to hear, and Daly is unable to fully trust him again, but the one thing they can do right is play their little game with each other.

“Rules are naught between us. You have my everything because you will give me yours.” 

When I read the description of this book I could not wait to start reading it. All I have to say was I was not disappointed. The feelings between Jeremiah and Daly are just as intense as their Dom and Sub play. Daly can go from crying to downright pissed in seconds flat. This book made me laugh at times when I needed it and emotional at the same time. Overall, I think this is a great read for anyone that enjoys a great Dom that is head over heels for a smartass submissive that is not afraid to stand up for herself.

Please tell me the next book will be written for Toby!

My Favorite Moment: One of my favorite moments was when Jeremiah demands Daly to return to the club. Toby must escort her to the one place that Jeremiah built specifically for her.

“”He spared not one dime, Daly,” Toby said in a deep voice filled with …regret.

She wondered at his tone, the reason behind his regret, and her gaze sliced to him. He looked down again. She followed his action and her knees weakened.” 

My Favorite Character: I love when Daly gets fed up with Jeremiah and her brother Toby breaking into her house. 

“”It’s not breaking and entering if –”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, if you have a key.” she returned in frustration.”

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Forever (Grand Central Publishing Group – Loveswept) in exchange for an honest review* 

It’s been awhile since I’ve highlighted this much while reading. There were so many things that had me on the verge of crying, trying not to laugh, and thinking DAMN! That’s HOT! Yep, definitely an emotional read.

I loved Jeremiah’s intense stubbornness. He knows what he wants and he will take it back. There is no amount of resistance that will keep him away. Because to him, he’s stayed away entirely too long as it is. Daly may have the power to destroy him again, but he can’t control how he feels about her, or how much he wants her to let him in. But in the end…is he any different than her? Trust works both ways.

“You can’t talk, can you, Day? You missed my heat, didn’t you, baby? Tell me.” 

Daly walked away from the love of her life because of trust. Without trust, their EVERYTHING didn’t amount to anything. And holy cow it was freaking heartbreaking! However, she did try to move on…at least with her career. She loves her job and the impact it has. But there is one thing she loves more, even if she doesn’t want to admit it. And when a ring shows up she has no other choice than to see the one person she’s avoided for three years…Jeremiah.

“Her body ached to submit to the only man she had ever loved.” 

The relationship between Daly and her brother, Toby, was sad. There was too much distance between them and when he confesses everything as to why things happened the way they did I changed my mind about him. Love Toby, and he better find his happiness in book two! He deserves it!

“”I’m a total badass now, Tob. Seriously, you don’t wanna mess with me.” She amazed herself by keeping a straight face. Badass she was not.” 

This is definitely not one of those books that’s all about the sex. If you enjoy an intense storyline filled with lots of emotion mixed with your BDSM, then this is the book for you. But don’t get me wrong though, there’s still a lot of Steaming HOT sex. 

My Favorite Moment: I love a true friend, and Candace is Daly’s. She even puts her friendship with Sebastian on the line in order to help her out. Which brings me to my favorite moment… A very public declaration. It was filled with such intense and heartbreaking emotion.

“Your sub hurts as well, Sir. Her heart is broken. Trampled. Because her Dom didn’t trust her.”
