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!
I lean closer and tuck a lock of auburn hair behind her ear. “I know, sweetheart, but I’m trying here. I’m trying to instruct you, and also be a good friend to Hale.”
“What Hale doesn’t know won’t hurt him. We’re both grown-ups, right?”
“Don’t your lessons usually involve sex?”
“Yes,” I say, unequivocally. Fuck. Yes.
“Well, I want my junk touching your junk. Do you want that too?”
“Yeah,” I choke out. Did she just say junk?
“Okay then, it’s settled. Three lessons. Our genitals will be friends, and that’s it. At the end of it, we part ways.”
That’s what I’m afraid of.
I take a deep breath, steeling my resolve. I have to stick to the terms of our agreement—three lessons. Three opportunities to show Macey who’s in charge. There can be no emotional ties. No, this will be all about the physical.
Even if my heart wanted her at one time, things have changed. My faith in love has been all but obliterated, initially by my own first love, then by watching my parents’ marriage dissolve into a nasty battle. Later it was further damaged by witnessing my best friend’s betrayal by the woman he gave his heart to. I’ve been successful at completely tuning it all out, allowing me to become the man I am today.
The only kind of relationship I want is the kind where naked women trust me with their willing bodies and curious minds. I live for that hazy, disoriented sub-space look in their eyes after a particularly intense scene. The one that tells me they idolize my very existence and will do anything I command. I feel ten feet tall in those moments, like a pure sex god built for doling out pleasure and punishment.
Taking Macey to that place is something I’ve fantasized about, but never thought I’d make a reality. Do I dare go there with the woman who once owned me so completely?
You bet your sweet ass I’m going to. You only live once, right? There’s a saying for this . . . carpe diem or something. Seize the day, I think. Macey is giving me her submission on a silver platter, and what happens behind closed doors will be our business. Hale doesn’t call all the shots, even if he likes to think he does.
Leaning forward with my elbows on the table, I lift my gaze to Macey’s. “What I want, sweetheart is you naked, bound, and spread open before me, your wrists laced together with my rope, your ankles pinned with my spreader bar. Your cunt waiting for me to fill it. You will be used as I see fit. Do you understand?”
Her quick inhalation of breath signals this is an idea she finds appealing, which only excites me more. I have to remind myself to keep detached.
“Will I be gagged?” she asks.
“No.” I smile at her. “You won’t be gagged. I’ll want to hear all the pretty whimpers and cries falling from your mouth.”
“And what about you?” she asks. “Will I be able to touch you? Kiss you?”
My own heart rate spikes despite the calm, cool demeanor I’m struggling to keep in place. “Do you want those things?”
Nodding eagerly, she meets my stare. “I think you know I do.”
“I don’t know you anymore, Macey. You keep forgetting that. You’ve walked back in my life like we can pick up right where we left off, but we’ve both changed.”
She watches me for a few quiet moments, as if she wants to disagree. “You never answered the question.” A smile twitches on her mouth.
“You will touch me when, how, and where I say.” My tone comes out harsher than I intended. Damn, get it together. “And kissing is not something I generally do with my submissives, but given our history, I’ll take it under advisement.”
Fuck, there’s nothing I want more than my mouth on hers.
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
This sinfully, forbidden brother's best friend romance doesn’t skip a beat. Sinfully Mine rocked my world! This is the second book in the Lessons With the Dom Series. This book is about Reese Jackson, the owner of the BDSM club called Crave. This a very sweet but sexy tale of two people who were destined for each other. Macey has literally loved Reese since she was a teenager and Reese has always had feelings for Macey… but he is her brother’s best friend. He knew it would never end well. Reese realizes the love he felt for Macey all those years as a child has not changed as they grew.
Macey is determined to start over in Chicago after finding out her boyfriend has been cheating on her. With it being on New Year’s Eve she is having a hard time getting in contact with her brother, Cameron. Her next best option is to contact Reese Jackson. When she finds out that Reese is the owner of a BDSM club her mind seems made up on what she wants Reese to do her. Reese promises Macey three lessons on what his lifestyle is like. As Reese explores with Macey, the feelings between them grow stronger the longer they're together. Things are difficult for a while, because Reese doesn't know what he wants--he had his walls built up so high that he never thought a woman would be able to bring them down. That was until Macey came back into his life.
It was nice to catch up with Camron and Brielle and to see how their relationship is going. It was interesting to see how Cameron would handle the relationship with his best friend being involved with his little sister. This is a standalone novel, but I would highly recommenced you read the first book in this series because I love Cameron. I wish Kendall would write another book about him and Brielle. The next book in the series is about another Dom, Oliver, and it sounds great!
