This is a love story, pure and simple. Oh, there’s plenty of drama, tons of suspense, and some smoking hot sex, but ultimately it is about a man who loves a woman through thick and thin, good and bad, and is always there for her. ~ Shadow, Guilty Pleasures
(Suncoast Society series book 49)
[Siren Sensations: Erotic Consensual BDSM Romance, M/F, sex toys, spanking, HEA]
Brita was a cop, until an on-duty injury while protecting a child forced her retirement. Now, her days are spent teaching firearms classes, shooting skeet, and doting on her young niece, Jordan. She knows her relationship with Ethan is for life, it’s just a matter of forcing her brain to label it.
The moment Brita got shot is forever seared in Ethan’s memory. She’s the woman he loves, but he’s no dumb Dom. He’s patiently awaiting the day she can finally accept he’s not going anywhere.
Then, an incident during a school outing, where Brita makes a split-second call to protect Jordan and her classmates, changes life forever. Legally and morally, Brita made the right decision. Unfortunately, the man’s rabid fans paint a bulls-eye on Brita via Jordan. When Brita disappears in hope of protecting her family–and her and Ethan’s secret lifestyle–he knows he has to find her. But first, he has to catch the bastards stalking her.

This is a love story, pure and simple. Oh, there’s plenty of drama, tons of suspense, and some smoking hot sex, but ultimately it is about a man who loves a woman through thick and thin, good and bad, and is always there for her.
Brita was injured while on duty as a cop and suffers through pain every day, some days worse than others. She also suffers from PTSD, and other issues, including a reluctance to lean on other people. It is this latter trait that drives Ethan, her boyfriend and Dom crazy. He wants nothing more than to care for her, but her independent streak prevents that from happening as much as he would like. However, much to his joy, things are moving forward in their relationship when Brita is involved in a shooting. Although the shoot was justified, the man she shot has internet supporters who work hard to make Brita’s life miserable. Can Ethan live with Brita’s choices for dealing with the aftermath?
We meet some familiar faces in this story, and some new ones.
In some ways this was a tough book to read, because the reader feels Brita’s pain. But she is a very strong person who finds her own way of coping with her problems-with Ethan.
Then there’s Ethan-what’s not to love about Ethan? He’s a strong Alpha type, who is willing to mitigate his demands to accommodate his woman’s needs. And while he is a Dom, he knows when to back off. As a book hero, he is one of the best ever.
This is a definite five star read with compelling characters, and a great story line.
