When pirate Black Jack captures a ship at sea, he considers the territorial governor’s haughty daughter part of the spoils of war. Tying the fiery beauty to his bed, Jack claims Emma as his…over and over again.
Jack has a secret. One he’s kept hidden from his best friend Emma…
When she calls in a favor, asking Jack to perform in a pirate fetish fantasy at the nightclub she manages, Emma inadvertently opens Pandora’s box—for both of them. As portraying a dominant pirate forces more of Jack’s secret desires to light, Emma finds herself enmeshed in sensual explorations of BDSM, wax play, bondage and sex in public that leave her questioning her vanilla existence.
When a second heated interlude on the stage finds her submitting to Jack, Emma suspects she’ll never find her way back to her simple missionary lifestyle. But with Jack in control…she’s not sure she wants to.
I loved the background story and build up of the sexual tension between Jack and Emma. It made my heart race. The verbal sparring back and forth was perfect; it gave the characters real depth and showed the history between them.
Emma is not sure about getting involved with her best friend, Jack. He’s a dominant and she’s sure that a submissive role won’t suit her. After one practice scene with Emma, Jack can’t believe he’s missed what’s been in front of him forever. Emma’s a closet sub and he knows just how to draw her out and push her limits.
Black Jack is a story within a story. The fantasies that Jack and Emma play out on stage find their way into their real life; becoming day dreams that won’t be ignored. This is a really fun story that will pull you in from the first line and keep the pages turning.
The secondary character and third friend, Travis, has a twisted tale I can’t wait to read. At least I hope Mari Carr will share his story with us! Travis is a great complimentary character to this story and will leave the reader wondering.
Black Jack by Mari Carr has heart, hot sex, erotic fantasies, and a little mystery. It’s well written and not to be missed.
