These three wonderful authors have done it again. Not only are they great authors in their own right but together they make a great team. Each of these stories is a good read but together they are fantastic. Each story has a strong plot and characters that are so full of emotions and depth as well as sex appeal. You can practically see the steam rising off of the pages. This is definitely a must read. If you enjoyed the first book you will be thoroughly pleased with this one as well. I loved watching each relationship in this book begin and take shape.
In the first story we meet Master Trevor and Shelby. As Master Trevor teaches Shelby we see their feelings begin to ignite. Neither he nor Shelby is ready for the bond that forms between them, but hopefully love will win. I loved seeing the hard Dom find his match. Shelby may not have a lot of experience but she wants to try for more and she wants to please Trevor. The two make a wonderful couple.
Next comes the story of Holly and her men. Tex and Hunter have longed for this day, as has Holly. The three finally find themselves at a crossroads either take the plunge or continue to live in pain. I really liked the way these three learned to lean on each other for support. Holly is a strong woman who finds that her heart belongs to both men and she is ready to take what she wants.
Summer and Virgil’s story comes next. After a painful and frightening experience Summer has vowed to only play at the club, to never be alone with a Dom again. Yet something about Virgil calls to her. As the two begin to play they find themselves falling for each other but there is much to overcome on both sides. I loved watching Virgil begin to become the Dom that he is. He is a good man who needs to stop fighting himself. The love he feels for Summer is evident in everything he does and maybe their love will help them both get over their fears. I loved seeing many of the characters from other books by this author in this story. It was nice to see and revisit them again.
Each of these stories was a good read on its own but together they make a wonderful read. Every story intertwines with the others. We see the characters from the other stories in each story making the book flow nicely. I have to say that Master Xavier has once again caught my eye. I hope that one day we get to see his story told. This is a marvelous continuation of this series and I hope that we get to see more from Dark Haven.
