Some Like it Rough

The steamy situations include menage à trois, anal sex, voyeurism, dom/sub situations and toys.” —Gail Pruszkowski, 4 stars from Romantic Times Magazine

He is still holding onto just a little bit too much of his past, and I felt for him during his struggle to let go of the pain so that he could hold onto Lucy. He was as awe aspiring with his emotions as he was with his possessive, hot, alpha attitude.” –  Melissa, Dark Diva Reviews — 4 1/2 divas Full Review
