Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.
As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.
After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

Beth is over it. Over relationships. Over people. Over lies. OVER IT! She's trying to move on, but when sexy Firefighter Drew positions himself next to her, she can't over look or ignore him. She can surely try, but Drew's not going anywhere. He is will to take things slow for her sake and teacher her how to trust again. Will she ever trust Drew with her heart?
This is a light BDSM where there is a FemDomme. This is a good book to cut your teeth on the BDSM world. Not too deep, but enough so that you understand what is going on and how their relationship works for them. I liked the book, but yet it wasn't enough for me. There was a second plot going on in the background, that I wanted more from. I guess I wanted it to tie in somehow to Drew and Beth. Overall a good book, with two great characters.
