Krystina Cole was a girl on a mission. She had big dreams and aspirations, none of which included a man by her side. She knew better than that – at least until she met Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon. She saw the way that he looked at her, and the dark promises in his eyes. She was curious about his world and all that it entailed. But the shadows of her past haunted her, making her afraid to explore possibilities that she could never before have imagined…
Alexander Stone was a man who knew how to get what he wanted. He understood the value of finesse, and the importance of patience and diligence to achieve the desired result. He was successful and wealthy, relying on his naturally sharp instincts to guide him through life. But a chance run in with Krystina Cole quickly turned his world upside down. Her quick wit and firecracker attitude was the complete opposite of what he wanted in a woman, and his instincts failed him at every turn…
However, both Krystina and Alexander are clinging to the secrets of their past, and neither of them are willing to compromise. Krystina’s hardened heart makes emotional surrender a hard limit. But for Alexander, revealing his past could have devastating results.

AHot steamy drama.
This is the first book of a trilogy by Dakota Willink detailing the relationship between Alexander Stone and Krystina Cole. She just graduated from university in advertising who is working in a grocery store. They meet as she runs into a display and is knocked down.

Stone helps her up and is immediately drawn to her feeling a strong desire to possess her. He is the CEO of a real estate empire and was there to help save the failing grocery store.
His desire leads him to offer her a job opportunity and evenings as his submissive. He is an experienced Dom and although she know nothing of his world but she agrees to try. They both have traumas from their past and issues they need to deal with. She doesn’t want to give up her hard earned independence and he’s a man who knows what he wants. And what he wants is her.
This is a powerful drama filled with complex characters and set in the world of domination and submission. It does contain explicit sexual scenes so you need to be prepared for that. But this book is not just about hot, steamy scenes, it is really about two people who are trying to find their way. Two people who love each other yet don’t know it yet. The storyline is wonderfully written and worth the read for those over 18 who enjoy complex and flawed characters wrapped in a steamy hot romantic package.
