When Johanna Devlin fell in love with Sean Devlin she thought she had it all—a man who loved her as much as she loved him and the perfect Dom for her submissive nature. On her birthday when he asked her to marry him, to wear his collar, she was sure she had it all. But the next day he disappeared and four years later he’s still missing from her life. Except for rare visits to Club Fantasy she’s retreated from the D/s lifestyle. Then her sister insists she accept the gift of a night at Club Fantasy with a Dom who knows just how to satisfy all her sexual needs. She accepts with some reservation, especially when the dungeon master blindfolds her before taking her to the private room. Before the night is over she finds a lot more than hours of intense sexual delights.
In the first book in Ms. Holt's new Club Fantasy series, we are introduced to Johanna, who hasn't indulged in her submissive tendencies since her Dom, Sean, went missing years ago, the night after he proposed marriage to her. Jo shut down when Sean went missing, making her work as an event planner her life. When her sister Kira proposes that she go back to Club Fantasy for her birthday, Jo is sure that she won't be able to play well with a Dom who isn't Sean, but agrees to try it.
Jo is still nervous upon her re-entry into Club Fantasy, but when she is blindfolded and starts a scene with her new Dom, Jo remembers how much she loves being a submissive. Only problem is that she keeps remembering her times with Sean.
What Jo doesn't know is that her Dom is Sean. His disappearance is very quickly explained and he, along with Kira, set up a night that Jo will never forget.
I have to say that while this was a very enjoyable story, it was a little too short for me to really get into it. I also felt that there were a few inconsistencies in the story- Jo states that she hasn't celebrated her birthday in 10 years, since Sean left. Then two pages later, it has been 4 years since she last celebrated. Kira also went from Jo's sister, to her friend, and then back to her sister. I actually had to read the first 5 pages twice to make sure I wasn't reading this wrong. Other than that, this was a steamy, short read, that if you are in the mood to be turned on, and quickly, then this is for you.
