~ Synopsis ~
She was forbidden.
I didn’t care.
As my best friend's little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin, and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I’d 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.
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.

I had the pleasure of devouring this new read from Kendall. There are a few authors that will make me deviate from my calendar and she is most definitely one of them. Reece.......super sexy dom hiding his pain in his lifestyle. Macey....the firecracker about to blow his world apart. No surprises here.....another steamy read from Kendall Ryan full of sexual tension, angst, second chances and love.
We briefly meet Reece in the Gentleman Mentor as Hale's best friend. Macey shows up and stirs up everything that Reece has tried to forget and feel since creating his club and embracing the lifestyle.
I loved Reece. Loved his super sexy dominant side (panty changes may be required) but loved how off kilter Macey made Reece. She was under his skin and caused cracks in his well placed mask. The one that got away...the forbidden fruit. But how can something that feels so right be wrong?
Reece didn't stand a chance. What started out as fun ignited more feelings than either he or Macey could have imagined. Macey had never met another that had made her feel like Reece and she was determined not to let him get away a second time.
Of course, there involvement received some resistance from Hale but that was to be expected. Hale puffed his chest and let it be known that he would not allow Reece to hurt his sister and was not very excited about Reece sharing the club with his sister. Let's just say Macey was quick to put him in his place, pointing out a little "the pot calling the kettle black".
Grab your copy of Sinfully Mine today and meet Reece and Macey. You won't be sorry! Of course, if you haven't met Hale...you should most definitely grab the Gentleman Mentor too!
