It's an acquired taste he just has to acquire it
Elise knows what she wants in the bedroom, and she makes sure she gets it. Her thirst for domination has long been quenched by a stable of men only too happy to bow down before her.
But sexual satisfaction isn't the same as love, and she's been burned in the past by giving her heart too freely.
Niall is handsome, smart, successful and sweet-sweet as vanilla. When they meet, their romantic connection is electric, even though he's way on the opposite end of the kink spectrum. Despite how she fights it, Elise falls for him-but how can a relationship work when both lovers want to be on top?
"Hart wields her pen like a scalpel in this soul-searching, emotionally sensitive story. Strong characterization and smooth, yet forceful, writing captures your attention and holds you hostage."

Steamy erotica with a complex female character
This erotic romance tells the story of Elise and the three men she is involved with. The first is a man she refers to as George, her ex boyfriend whom she no longer has any contact with but with whom she is still emotionally attached. The second is Esteban, her lover who gives her what she desires but in a strictly sexual relationship with no strings. And the third is Niall, ostensibly the hero of the story, whom Elise meets at a photo gallery exhibition where pictures of her in various femdom poses are displayed. Niall works with Elise's brother and is not into kink and definitely not the variety that Elise likes. But something about him sparks her interest and vice versa. Elise will have to decide where she wants her future to lie. Firstly I have to say that I'm never quite sure how things will turn out in a Megan Hart story. Will there be a happy ending? Will lovers go their separate ways? I know to expect steamy sex scenes and heartwrenching emotions but I'm always on tenderhooks as the story plays out. In fact, that's one of the things that delights me about reading her novels, that they aren't predictable, and that's refreshing. I loved this story! It starts with a bang, showing Elise's dominant side in a steamy sex scene with her lover Esteban. It shows what she craves sexually, but her heart isn't in it - nor does she want her heart to be involved as it's still broken from her relationship with George. So already we have a complex character who is unfulfilled and not sure if she's even looking for someone. When she meets Niall, she knows that part of his interest is his fascination with her kink - a kink that makes him uncomfortable but doesn't stop him from pursuing her. I really liked Niall, and I felt that I understood him and his desire for Elise even as he wars with himself over what is acceptable to him. Their sex scenes are equally hot if different than the ones Elise shares with Esteban. Emotionally she becomes attached to Niall and this creates a problem for her, knowing he might reciprocate the feelings but not really understand her. And yet she finds he does know her, he pays attention to her and that's more then she's ever gotten in the bedroom from her submissive lovers. Secondary characters play a key role in the story, Elise's family and her co-workers and friends heightening the tension and adding depth to the emotional side of the story. It was a reminder that no matter what happens in the bedroom the rest of ones lives play out like everyone elses, with problems and friendships and the minutiae of living. I didn't know what Elise was going to decide, who she would end up with until the very end as the story played out. The ending was sweet and satisfying and lovely, making me laugh and shed a few tears. I look forward to more stories that test the boundaries of sex and love from this author. 5 stars.by Maria Rose on February 28, 2015
