Domination is book two in the Explicitly Yours Series.
After submitting to a millionaire for a night, Lola Winters’ dreams are suddenly within grasp—until she discovers Beau Olivier’s money doesn’t go as far as she’d thought. As unexpected costs appear and her relationship is tested, Lola begins to question what she really wants.
Lola knows she can solve her problems with one phone call, but she may risk going too far to have it all. Because she’s not dealing with just anyone—Beau Olivier is a master. For Beau, there’s no such thing as too far. There is only conquest. There is only victory.
Beau already possessed Lola’s mind, body, and soul for a night, but it wasn’t enough. Like Lola, he wants more than he got. But the more they have...the more there is to lose.

Review: Night Fever #2: Night Call
Night Call by Jessica Hawkins is the second book in her Night Fever series.
So, they took the deal. Johnny and Lola agreed to have Lola spend one night (Sunup to sundown) with Beau in exchange for $1,000,000. Can their relationship survive this night? The cost of purchasing the bar has gone up from $500,000 to nearly $800,000 already eating into their hefty deposit from Beau. If they want to renovate and make the changes they've planned they'll need more money.
Beau left an open invitation to have another night with Lola. Same deal. But she is still having a hard time coming down from the gamut of emotions that Beau made her feel about him, about herself, about her sexuality. She is beginning to resent Johnny and his overly laid-back attitude. He practically pushed her out the door towards Beau and is now wavering between aloof and angry.
What will happen if/when Lola takes the deal? Can she survive another night with Beau with her emotions so out of control where he is concerned. What secret is Beau hiding from her and how will she react when she finds out.
This book was explosive. Can't wait for more.
Hands down the most infuriating series I have ever read. I read all 5 books including book 2.5 from Beau’s perspective. It was a rollercoaster. This author incorporated control, dominance, pride, insecurity, fear, hate, vengeance, rage, revenge, jealousy, superiority complexes, narcissism, forgiveness, self realization, love and a host of other emotions in this series. In my honest opinion the series doesn’t start to pick up until almost the very end of book 2- Domination. That is where you see crossroads, decisions and real emotion. Prior to that I spent my time battling whether or not I even wanted to finish the series. That was most because Beau, the male protagonist was easily the worst character I have ever read about (so unlikeable). He was the kind of guy that you’d warned your friend to stay away from and although it is a book, it was difficult to digest that anyone could be that deplorable. And he remained that way.. until he didn’t. I consider my strong reaction to him a testament to the authors depth in creating her characters and overall the author did an excellent job of allowing the reader to see the transformation he went through. I really loved that although this story carried a large power imbalance from the very beginning, at the end the female protagonist found herself. That’s refreshing for this genre of literature and while I did not at all feel like this was a romance series for the majority of my reading, (it felt like everything but love and romance in the traditional sense) and couldn’t see how the author would be able to spin it that way with very few chapters left - I ended the final book feeling like I’d read about a real love story with a true happy ending. One of my complaints is the constant use of certain words that I found to be offensive. The profanity was one thing but some of the other word choices were extreme to say the least. Overall, the series was good.
Well written & couldn’t put it down.
