NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED * THE COMPLETE NOVEL
Cela knows how to be good. She’s had a lifetime of practice. But on the night of her college graduation, she decides she’s earned one wild night before she has to move back home to her overprotective family. So when the hot neighbor she’s been quietly fantasizing about for a year suggests a game of Never Have I Ever, she’s ready. But what starts out as a simple game takes an unexpected turn. Because Ian Foster doesn’t play games he can’t win.
Foster knows his desires aren’t for the faint of heart, especially not for someone as sweet and innocent as his pretty neighbor. But when Cela shows up at his door with an invitation that surprises him, he can’t resist indulging. Cela has no idea what she’s in for. The secret dark side of this man’s need will both intrigue and terrify her. But Cela has a secret of her own—and a new game to see just how far they’re both willing to go, and how much they’re willing to risk by crossing every boundary of desire.
Originally presented an eight-part e-serial, this erotic romance is listed as book 3.5 in Loren's BDSM-themed Loving on the Edge series, now collected in print for the first time. Newly graduated, innocent veterinarian Marcela Medina has a huge crush on her sexy neighbors, Pike (a rock star) and Foster (a businessman). When she finally gives in and accepts their offer of company, she swiftly discovers a submissive streak that leaves the dominant Foster surprised and intrigued. Together, they discover new heights of passion, as Foster unleashes virginal Cela's sensual side. But the more intense their relationship gets, the more frightened Cela becomes of her newfound fulfillment in submitting to Foster, while he struggles with the idea of actually falling in love with her. Loren's depiction of a couple finding their balance through BDSM is safe, sane, consensual, and blisteringly hot, an ideal interpretation of an oft-misunderstood lifestyle. The romance is as emotionally satisfying as the erotic sessions are vivid and stimulating, and the characters are worth rooting for.
