Series: Rescue Me #2
Available: Barnes & Noble / Amazon
Marc d'Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damian, but he keeps all women at a distance. However, when Marc rescues beautiful Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at the club, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel.
Angelina leaves BDSM behind, only to have her dreams plagued by the Italian angel who rescued her at the club. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can't shake the feeling she knows him, but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel.
When Marc's search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, confides he believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, Marc is convinced she is meant for Luke. A painful incident from his past keeps Marc from letting any woman drive a wedge between him and a friend.
While Luke can provide Angelina with love and stability, Marc knows his friend can't satisfy her submissive needs. Marc offers one night to show her that BDSM is not about pain, but a power exchange with mutual trust and consent. But he knows he can't commit emotionally to anything more.
When the abusive Dom from Angelina's past threatens, Marc's protective instincts kick in; he must keep her safe. Again at the Masters at Arms Club, she turns the tables on him and turns his safe, controlled world upside down. (Book Two in the RESCUE ME series; follows introduction to series, MASTERS AT ARMS.)
Another excellent story by Kalkyspo Masters, her stories of war heroes and BDSM are just mind blowing.
What I like most about her stories is the details she gives. They are never not enough or too much...it's always just enough.
In book 2, we get Marc's story. Poor, sexy, gorgeous, jack-ass Marc. You see he was hurt really bad in his past by a gold digging heffa, so he has vowed to never let a woman get close to him again. So he never get close and once a woman starts to get close to him, of course he starts running.
In walks Angelina. She had a bad experience at the Master At Arms w/her ex and has vowed to never get invovled in the lBDSM lifestyle again..here the thing, she's sexually submissive so vanilla sex isn't going to work for her. She needs a Dom.
These two had serious trust issues, but decide to take on a temporary Dom/Sub relationship. Marc convinces himself that he'a doing it to help Angelina realize that she needs a Dom..not that he's falling for her hard. The same thing for Angelina, she does it to convince herself she isn't submissive. It was fun to read these two dodge their feeling for one another.
Ms. Masters attention to details in her stories is what keeps you reading. I love how she has her characters explain the BDSM lifestyle to people, where they don't know anything about it or if where abused within the lifestyle and how they explain that the relationships between a Dom/Sub is based on trust and yes love.
Another wonderful story in the Rescue Me series. I didn't cry as much as I did in the first book, but I did have some teary moments. I already purchased book 3, Adams story and cant wait to read it. And Im anxious to get to Luke's book..I think that is going to be a good one.
A recommended read, but I think all of the books in this series will be.
These stories contain sexually explicit scenes...18+ only.
