Brix Johnson is the kind of guy a girl brings home to meet her parents.
The reserved intellect.
The handsome boy next door.
The wealthy yoga instructor.
He’s also the guy haunted by the mysterious woman who gave him the best sex of his life, yet refused to give him her name. With his bombshell no more than a memory, he does what any normal, sexually frustrated man would do ─ he returns to Indulgence.
At Indulgence, a yearly, invitation only, New Year’s Eve erotic masquerade party, Brix can shed his typical persona for one night, and be anyone he wants to be. Lucky for him, the women at Indulgence don’t require conversation. They simply want hardcore sex. But when his past sneaks into his fantasy, can he cope with reality or will he walk away from pure satisfaction?
The crop cracked against my hip. It was so sudden and while I didn’t really feel anything, the sound caused me to jerk against my restraints. “Are you all right?” she asked, sounding sincere.
She drifted the crop back down to my crotch. “Now, I will not inflict any pain here.” She swirled the tip of the crop around my penis. “But that doesn’t mean I won’t tease.”
Another crack against my thigh and I damn near bounced out of my skin. The posters of the bed jerked at my reaction, but I remained unmoved. Back and forth the crop kissed my skin. My thighs burned yet my cock grew harder. I winced at the sting yet ached with need. Her strikes weren’t hard at all. Nothing like I’d seen in porn or read about in books. No, she was being gentle. Gearing me up. And it was working.
Just when I thought I might not be able to handle much more, she landed one final blow to my thigh and then rubbed the crop along the burn. “Not even a shout or a hiss. I’m proud of you. You’re a natural.”
My chest inflated with pride. I hadn’t even realized I’d held my tongue.
Cedar returned the crop to the drawer and moved to the bed where she straddled my hips. “What is it that you want?” she demanded. “Be clear and frank with me.”
I lay there, unable to move, feeling her hot pussy against my stomach and all I could think of was,
“I want you to own me.”
4TLOR 5 Star Review ~ by Lou
We are back at Indulgence!! This book is hot, steamy and totally addictive!
This book is a standalone, but I would HIGHLY recommend you read book 1 first, as there is a fair bit of overlap, and to fully appreciate Brix’s story and understand all of the characters involvement, it would be beneficial to read ‘Indulgence’ beforehand.
Having read the first book and I was super pleased that Brix was getting his own book. He really deserved it and Jeanne did not let us down with this story for him. Brix is a very different character, and not necessarily the alpha male you might expect. He is extremely hot and sexy, but at the same time is lacking a lot of self confidence himself and is pretty shy. He’s the total opposite of a cocky, confident guy, and is actually far more reserved but also very honest and sincere.
Brix meets the woman of his dreams, and following an evening of passion they part ways but he doesn’t even know her name. He’s desperate to find her again and continue where they left off, but she either can’t be found or doesn’t want to be found.
Being friends with Addison, means that Brix ends up heading to Indulgence again for another New Year party! And that’s when the fun really starts….!
This book is very passionate and sensual, and written beautifully. It’s a quick, fun easy read, packed full of fun, frolics, humor and a serious side. Erotic romances can be a bit OTT, but again, Jeanne McDonald has written the story so well, it’s perfect.
We get plenty from Addision and Sebastian in this story which is great as I loved those two, and lots from all of the other secondary characters which I would love to see more from! I really look forward to reading more in this series as there are a lot of characters whose stories I would love to explore, and a few questions I would still like answered!
Overall a really great 5 star read which I devoured from start to finish and left me feeling truly satisfied!!
4TLOR Review ~ by Donna
This is one hot, fast paced read that can be read as a standalone, but I recommend you read indulgence first.
Brix is not your typical alpha, I think this is what drew me to him and what I found refreshing, the fact the he has the looks and the potential to be he is anything but, he lacks in confidence from being friend zoned to many times and being mr nice. He is after all honest, sweet and charming, I loved the glimpses from the first book and was grateful he got his own.
I adored Brix, although I feel there is more layers to him and feel their could be more to his happy ever after, I personally didn’t feel his counterpart was right for him and didn’t totally connect but, it didn’t distract from the hot and steamy sex scenes.
Honestly though, Jeanne does the world of erotic romance justice, I find sometimes it’s all about the sex and there’s not enough substance to keep my focus, but Jeanne get the balance perfect and you got both in equal measures.
