As a follow up to the Aerie Doms by Ms. Thacher, Mackenzie Lyon is featured as the “Lawyer to the Doms”. If you have read this series, some of the characters will be familiar to you, especially the sexy Mackenzie. If you have not read them you will be able to keep up; however, this will make you want to read them.
This proved to be an interesting read. An unusual set of circumstances bring two very interesting characters together. Nice storyline and flow throughout the novel. The characters are well developed. Both main characters have careers and goals, Sara as a CFO for a charitable organization and Cal as a composer. They are intelligent and driven in their own lives.
She is a sexual submissive and enjoys the lifestyle that entails. Having lived with her Master until his untimely death; she was willed to his nephew, Cal. Legally it has no bearing, but in the BDSM world she feels a certain obligation to at least meet him.
Discovering he is not in the lifestyle at all has her wondering what her Master was thinking. She is attracted to him at first sight. If only?
As an impoverished composer, who could only remember his uncle from one brief meeting, he has no choice but to move into his deceased uncle’s home while the will is in probate. Living with his uncle’s submissive may be too much for him.
Cal is unsatisfied with his sex life. That is until it is suggested he may be a dominant. He keeps telling himself he’s not a Dom. However, when his lawyer suggests that he think of sex like conducting an orchestra, things begin to click into place.
Visiting ‘The Club’ is a life changing experience for the young composer. Can he go back to the townhouse and fully claim his inheritance?
The story is told thru multiple points’ view, which gives great insights, and understanding to the situations the strange Bequest brings about. It will keep you on your toes wondering what will happen next.
Some of the sex is very hot; from scenes in the club to Cal’s office desk, they are exciting. Dominants and submissives are at play for everyone to enjoy in this novel.
You will want to read the rest of this series to see what happens to the characters you meet (or have already met). A very enjoyable read to say the least!
