No one claims marriage is easy. That is especially true for Kayla Sutton, because she’s married to a sadist who takes the meaning of the word “dominance” to new heights. But Kayla should have known. She fell for his wicked ways after he blackmailed her, stayed after he kidnapped her, went back to him after he almost destroyed them both with his unpredictable fury.
Then she married him.
A year has passed since Kayla agreed to love, honor, and obey. Day after day, she survives his volatile nature. On her knees at his feet, underneath him between the sheets, bent over the bed to receive the fiery lash of his belt. But she’s beginning to miss the one thing she promised Gage Channing when she married him: her freedom.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW
So, this one blew my fucking mind! It’s taken me this long to write this review! I thought I might fucking smash something if I had to talk about Gage to early! Gemma, girl… you really outdid yourself with this one! You have captured a total asshole alpha in all his splendor! I can hardly believe it, but this book actually made my blood pressure go up! Wow!
Gage Channing is an egotistical asshole with a major control issue. I have never been so fucking pissed off at a character in all my life! He’s mean, he’s selfish, he’s offensive, he’s condescending, and he’s just enough alpha and sexiness to wipe all that spitefulness away. How Gemma still manages to make me attracted to this fuck, I’ll never know! I want to grab hold of his lapel, rip his mug up to mine, and scream in his fucking face until he agrees to be kind to Kayla. Jaysus Fekking Croist!!!
Kayla is a fucking doormat. A well-dressed doormat, but a doormat all the same. I loved her for the way she handled Gage in some circumstances and I hated her for the times she folded when I know she could have prevailed. She always has that power, but very rarely uses it. This in itself drove me bat-shit crazy! So, I’ll leave you with this… I loved to hate her!
The supporting character cast was very small… Ian… God, Ian… what to say! I love him and I wish I knew more about what became of him. Is he ok? Is he alive? My heart can’t take much more of this! Katherine! You gotta be fist fucking me here! This would have been the straw that broke the camels back for me… Total jaw dropping moment! Simone is a great friend of Kayla’s but I’m afraid doesn’t do enough for her. I know there’s only so much she CAN do, but jeeze… I think she could have done more, but that’s just me!
So, what can I say! This story has been so compelling since the first installment that once I pick it up, I can’t put it down. The characters are very commanding and heartbreaking, but sometimes make me see red! The dialogue flows and feels natural and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! The entire book had me on the edge of my seat, constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s has plenty of plot twists and turns and keeps you engaged from cover to cover.
