Trust is a gift both given and received…
Akira Ito is a sub who is devastated when her Master, Seba uncollars her. She tries with all of her might to be the trusting sub he needs her to be but again and again she fails. When an opportunity arrives for her to try out the new Carnivore Resort for a prearranged date she jumps at it, hoping to use it to cure whatever roadblock is holding her back. Dressed as a manga character, she knows who she will be meeting for her one night stand. Under the pink hair and glam glasses anything is possible.
Seba Havas is bitter about the breakup between himself and Akari. He wanted her to trust him–to give all of herself and not hold back. But she didn’t and she by omission, lied to him about how she felt. That, to him, was unacceptable. When a friend suggests the new Club Carnivore and the mysterious Madame Eve’s one night stand service, he grabs at the chance. Maybe he can forget this sub who has left rivets in his heart. Only, when he arrives, he finds his date so much more alluring than he ever thought possible. Is there more going on behind the glasses of his hot sub for the evening? You’ll have to read this one to find out.
The 1 Night Stand series is one of my favorites from Decadent and this story by Dakota Trace takes us into a new branch. The Carnivore Club is a new destination for BDSM lovers and I could hardly wait to try out its secret rooms and play stations. Described to such an extent that I felt I was there, the story unfolded with the perfect amount of tension, sexiness and raw awesomeness that I couldn’t read it fast enough.
Short and sweet, this nugget takes you into BDSM situations and the vulnerability both a sub and her Master has when one or the other fails to trust. That is the foundation of any relationship, but more so in a BDSM scenario. Can Seba and Akira find their common ground? Can she get past whatever is holding her back? Pick up a copy of this tasty morsel today and I bet you fall in love just like I did.
Sexy and sleek, this series is a scorcher….
