He’ll train her to lure another man. She’ll lure him instead.
When interior designer Eliza Ballas accompanies a friend to New York’s premier BDSM club, she’s taken aback by the sheer want that overruns her body—especially when a sexy Brit assumes Eliza is adept at dark, sensual arts. If she’s going to play, she’ll need an erotic education, and she knows just the man to teach her how to submit…
Oliver Preston isn’t one to turn down pleasure, but Eliza’s his sister’s best friend, and he’s torn between a sense of duty and his rock-hard need to find out if she tastes as delicious as he’s dreamed. Unable to handle thought of another man owning her body, he draws Eliza deep into his world of exquisite pain and pleasure. He has three lessons to instruct her. Three lessons to drive them both to the brink of ecstasy. And three lessons before he must give her to another man...if he doesn’t lose himself first.
Okay, while I didn’t like the first book in this series, I LOVED the second book. Oliver and Eliza were the perfect couple for me in this series. Of course, I loved Oliver in the first book; he pretty much was awesome. In this book, you get to know how he felt about Eliza from the first moment that he met her as his sister’s college friend and how he feels about her now; which is pretty much a sexy feeling.
Eliza has set herself up with a Brit at Serve but has no really had any experience so she strikes up a deal with Oliver to have him train her. This is where the book got really good. While teaching her how to surrender in his very sexy, dominate way – he opens up Eliza sexually and she boosts his confidence at work. Both bring out this wonderful side to each other. They help build each other up and calm each other down.
This wonderful torturous strain that Bailey puts on these characters kind of messed with my heart. I wanted them so bad to just admit that they were made for each other and make this relationship happen. Of course, Bailey plays with our hearts and emotions while they make sense of their feelings.
Brilliant - as always - Tessa Bailey.
