Ethan asked Serena to meet him at the BDSM club he is managing. He suggests they have some drinks in his borrowed office.
Once they were inside, Ethan closed the door softly behind them and gestured her toward a seating area with a leather couch and armchairs. “I have a lounge area,” he said, wiggling his eyebrows at her. “Swanky, right?”
Her giggle bubbled out of her. His comment about having a seating area in his office put her at ease. Like he couldn’t believe he had an office, nevermind a seating area. She was so used to Alex trying to impress and awe her, Ethan’s laid back demeanor was refreshing. “It’s kind of imposing,” she admitted, perching herself on the edge of the couch.
“It is,” he agreed, taking up the cushion next to her. “I was afraid to touch anything the first few days. Knowing Martin, he has a specific place for everything. And if I mess it up?” He raised his eyebrows, and she widened her eyes waiting for him to finish. “There’s a dungeon in this place,” he finished in a mock whisper.
“I’ve been in there,” she said, leaning her head in toward him as if sharing a secret. “You probably couldn’t take it,” she teased.
“You’re right. I probably couldn’t.”
Serena's landed herself the perfect man. He's wealthy, powerful, and an unrelenting Dom. Everything a smart girl with a penchant for kink could want. But a year into their relationship and she's doubting what they really have together. When she confronts him, she's devastated to discover she had the wrong idea from the beginning.
Ethan is back in town to help out his friend manage his BDSM club. The short respite from his life across the country is just the break he needed. But when his troubles end up following him, things become even more complicated than before.
When Serena and Ethan meet, it isn't perfect timing. Serena finds it hard to trust again, but then Ethan shows her what it's like to be cherished. Can they let go of their baggage long enough to find real happiness? Or will their complicated past relationships catch up with them?
