Sting Factor (kink): 4.5 out of 5
Dasha Moore commands the world’s stages as one of pop’s reigning stars, but finds her ultimate joy at the feet of David Pennington, as his willing new submissive. In one night, her charismatic career manager becomes the Dominant of her body as well — and the owner of her heart.
David is blown away, in all the good ways, by discovering D’s submissive streak. He can’t wait to brand her deeper with his domination, but a lunatic fan has other, deadly plans for Dasha.
Consumed with keeping Dasha safe, David gives the FBI a full-access pass for their investigation, headed by Special Agent Kress Moridian, a guy with an unnerving protective streak. David’s initial instincts about Kress are accurate: the agent is another Dom, and his definition of “full-access” includes Dasha herself. Being shared with Kress is a new tune for Dasha, but she finds herself loving its rougher strains — and she begs David for their three-part harmony again.
But while her Doms make her body sing, Dasha’s heart and soul are torn. And what will happen to their song when they finally find the madman who wants her dead? Worse: what happens if they don’t find him?
Loved this book! It started out a bit slow but quickly sped up. I loved the multiple story line, Dasha and the stalker, Dasha, David, and Kress, and Dasha and her father. Angel Payne did a great job balancing the story lines, heat, and sex.
I was not fond of how the author glossed over Dasha and her father coming to terms. A big deal was made of the fact that Dasha does not stand up to her father, but the author did not put any of it in the book. In one chapter they were not getting along and then in the next chapter everything was fine and they made up.
I did not like how fast it came across that David was willing to share Dasha with Kress. Kress was a stranger. I also was not fond ofhow slow it seemed to take David and Dasha to get together.
