Publisher's Summary

The story of a forbidden love forged in the heat of battle, a war hero haunted by PTSD, and the Dominatrix who won't admit her love for him, yet can't live without him kneeling at her side.
Dr. Michelle Sapphire and Gunnery Sergeant Wyatt Callahan formed an unbreakable bond and an unacknowledged, forbidden attraction to each other while serving together in Afghanistan. Their lives are forever changed when a mortar attack grievously wounds Wyatt and Michelle brings him back from the brink of death. But when they both return to the civilian world, Michelle discovers that her rock-solid Marine is suffering from severe PTSD and may even be suicidal.
Wyatt Callahan fell hard for the aristocratic blonde doctor the moment he laid eyes on her. After reentering civilian life in his hometown near Austin, Texas, Wyatt is plagued by nightmares of the death and suffering he witnessed during the war. He'd love to reach out to Michelle, but Michelle is a Dominatrix, and she has made it very clear to Wyatt she isn't interested in a relationship with anyone who doesn't accept her lifestyle. An Alpha male to the core, he can't imagine the appeal of being submissive. At the same time, the idea of serving Michelle, of being everything she wants and needs, rings true in his wounded soul.
Michelle has dark secrets of her own, and together with Wyatt she will have to battle her personal demons during their emotional journey of healing, redemption, and love.

Hot button issue book!

This book had some great stories in it, but they are hot button issues for many readers and since this is part 1 I can't see how this is all going to work out yet. Those issues would be:
1. Male Submissives, which was kind of hot!
2. PTSD, these characters did time in Iraq and they are vivid about retelling their stories and the author portrays flashbacks and PTSD episodes very well....scarily well! If you have experienced PTSD, especially from the Military stand point might want to skip this book.
3. Suicide due to PTSD
4. Drinking to dull the pain
5. Loosing a loved one due to random gang violence in a suburb
6. Finding a new relationship after your fiance dies

I think that covers all the major issues people might have...generally I don't tell so much about a book but if it involves a true hot button for people I'd rather they know in advance.

I liked the book, really liked how the author built up the story and have already listened to 2 of her other books, she is really great and I plan to listen to them all!

- NEW NAME "Say something about yourself!"

An ok story with great narration!

The story was just ok to me. I think I was expecting it to be a lot hotter than it was. It's more of a romance with a little kink which is ok but I just expected more from the cover and the synopsis. I liked the troubled war vets storyline, it just felt a little rushed. Maybe if the story was longer and the author had a few more Dominatrix scenes not just a couple snippets and maybe if Wyatt actually had a PTSD break not just felt one coming and was brought back I would have felt more into those major parts of the story. Sadly it just wasn't for me. This book is probably a great way for a new to erotica & BDSM reader to get there feet wet with the genre. Story line was really my only issue, the writing was still very good!

The narration was great! Cassie Fields does a great job. I would have liked a little more tone change between Michelle and Wyatt, but it wasn't enough of an issue to complain about really, she gets 5 starts from me!
