Submissive Mia Manetti is devastated when her first Master uncollars her just as she was hoping for a permanent relationship with him. Trying to move on, she agrees to sub for a powerful and sexy new Dom.

Chess Ryan has wanted Mia from the first moment he saw her at Club
Restraint, but it was always "hands off" because she belonged to his friend Philip. Now, thanks to that friend's maneuvers, Mia is finally his. But only for a little while.

Mia finds it increasingly difficult to keep her feelings in check as she experiences erotic delights with Master Chess, sensual and sexual fantasies that she's never known before. But she fears she’s setting herself up for another heartache. Guilt, secrets and misplaced pride all keep Chess and Mia from being completely honest with each other. As they connect sexually and emotionally, they realize their relationship has grown too serious to be called "play".

How far are they willing to go as Master and slave?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements.


What a fantastic story.  Mia’s life crumbles before her when she is out of the blue uncollared without explanation.  My heart broke during the opening scene of this story, because even I felt she, as a slave, deserved a reason for such a life changing decision.

When Chess came to her rescue, I breathed a sigh of relief hoping maybe this man might help her find the reasons for his friend’s unwarranted dismissal of Mia.

Soon after it was apparent that Mia and her previous master didn’t share a full relationship and I questioned if maybe that was why he wanted her to find a new master, believing he’d served his purpose for their time together.

In time, I witnessed Mia flourish under Chess’ control.  Although he has his own issues that prevent them from moving completely forward, the sizzling chemistry between them made me hope they’d find a happy ending.  In the end when the twist gave me clarity, I saw how two caring individuals put aside their personal relationship to help a friend in need.  This book is one I enjoyed reading, although the roller coaster made me need a tissue or two.
