Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica, BDSM 

Hotness Factor: Warm like soup…definitely not near as hot as whiskey!

Book Length (Est.): 334 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

In this erotic tale of sensuality and suspense, Sidney Bristol proves that desire can be the most dangerous drug of all.

DEA Special Agent Damien Moana works hard and plays even harder. But while indulging in forbidden temptations at a private BDSM retreat, the unexpected happens: He falls under a stranger’s spell. This woman drives Damien to distraction, pushing him to the sweet boundary between pain and pleasure. When duty interrupts their heated encounter, his focus turns to catching a criminal . . . but his head is still with the seductress who ignites his deepest desires. Now Damien must choose between closing the case of his career and losing the woman of his dreams.

Poppy Mercer can’t forget the night she spent with her mystery lover. When chance brings them back together, she seizes the opportunity to again feel his masterful hands on her body. Poppy is a switch who delights in dominating a powerful man . . . and submitting to the ecstasy of his control. Outside the bedroom, however, she questions her place in Damien’s world. His obsession with hunting a ruthless drug lord puts Poppy in the line of fire. And though Damien might be able to save her from danger, salvaging what’s left of her trust is another matter.

Committed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Damien Moana is a true Dom and a very good DEA agent who works hard and plays even harder. At a private BDSM club he meets a woman who makes him feel things he has never felt before.

Poppy Mercer has fallen under a spell that causes her to face her feelings head on. Poppy is not good at submission unless the roles can be reversed. Being a switch makes it difficult to submit to just one man.

After a very passionate night together Damien is called away on business during Poppy’s aftercare. She realizes that she will never be his number one priority and decides to avoid him all together.

Damien’s job allows him to find her again and this time he will not take no for an answer, even if it means being a sub during play time to make her happy.

This is the first BDSM book that I have read that has a switch as a main character and I found it to be interesting. This storyline mainly focuses on Damien’s job and the crazy man he is after. The BDSM scenes are not as detailed as I am used to, but overall pretty good.

If you like a good read about a couple who has instant chemistry mixed with suspense then this would be great for you.
