She was forbidden.
I didn’t care.
As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.
When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.
No strings. No attachments.
And definitely no falling for her again.
If you love steamy romance, you won't want to miss this older brother's best friend romance.
This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!
What's more forbidden than pursuing your best friends little sister? Making her your submissive. What makes it even better is that Macey and Reece knew each other back then and crossed some lines at the wrong time, the wrong age. So there are a couple of taboo themes going on in this book that leads into something very delicious once they reunite six years later.
Reece and Macey thought they were over each other once they went their separate ways six years ago, and they managed individually and with other people, but ultimately the spark between them never actually went away. They carried their hurt and rejection when they went about life without each other, but when Macey comes back home to start over, do those feelings come back and punch them in the chest once they reunite. They still carry a torch for each other that they realize no one in their life ever measured up to. The chemistry and attraction is still there and hotter than ever.
Macey is back and she wants to explore her sexual side, and who better to do that with than first love, Reece, the only one she trusts not to mention love? Whom turns out to be the owner of the BDSM club she waltzed into. This couldn't be more perfect. So she recruits Reece to show her the ropes (pun intended). He is a Dom after all -- How hard could it be? Only 3 sessions. Should be a cakewalk. If only they knew what they were getting themselves into...
The thing I loved most about their dynamic was that they knew each other from way back when, and they were just as good of friends as Reece and Macey's brother was/is, as well as more than just friends. They were each others first love. So there was an easy comfort around each other, and there was an underlying burning attraction they feel for each other simmering. And when that surfaces, boy does it ignite. I can gush about how sweet and flaming hot they are together, but you'll see for yourselves. Their feelings for each other mixed with being intimate -- body, heart and soul -- just made it all the more hotter. Sure, as a Dom, he messed up their sessions, and as a friend, he kind of messes up too because of it. But eventually Reece was able to separate his feelings and his duty as a Dom and get things right with Macey, and keep her as his forever girl. Knowing this is second chance romance potential will have you rooting for them to follow their damn heart and hormones already.
I was a little confused about where Reece's hurt was coming from. In his head, he sounds like she broke his heart or rejected to be with him, but he's the one who put a stop to their fooling around. He didn't want to be the guy who holds her back from college and pursue a career, so he let her go to college and live her life without him. Okay, fine...after he confessed why he let her go I understood his hurt. It's not easy letting the one you love go, even if it's the right thing to do. As the saying goes -- If they come back, it was meant to be, right?
I love Kendall Ryan's dip into the BDSM pool with her previous series, and she freakin' dived in headfirst and gracefully well-done with this series. It just keeps on getting better and hotter each series, each book. I keep learning new things about this community through Kendall's books, and it's such an eye-opener. It's not what society makes this kind of kink made out to be, it's more complex than that and not just depravity like us outsider thought it was. Sinfully Mine is one hot second chance romance. Best friends little sister/brothers best friend taboo, BDSM and second chance romance all wrapped up in one, what more can you ask for? You have nearly everything you're looking for. Even though this was a satisfying read, I am already hungry for more from Kendall Ryan.
