Introducing Under His Dominance, book eight of the sexy new series from Alexa Davis that will test your boundaries...
Natalie Jacobs is a reporter trying to do a story on the panty dropping Dante Devereaux, a billionaire computer hacker who sells foreign government secrets to the CIA. This story could make her career and she’s willing to do anything to get it, even if it means sleeping with the enemy. The only problem is men aren’t ever into her so getting the story could be difficult.
Dante Devereaux is a cocky alpha male who isn’t scared of anything, even the FBI investigating him for selling the United States government’s secrets to foreign governments. He knows he can do whatever he wants since he has the power to hack anyone or anything and benefit from the information and that includes Natalie Jacobs who he will do everything possible to take control of...in and out of his bed.
Little do they know that they are both completely different people than they thought.
Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.
Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.
Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend...and a big one to learn about himself.
Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.
I love a great hockey book, I love a great M/M book even
more, but what I love even more is when the two genres are combined into
had me from the very start, I absolutely loved how we not only got to see Jamie
and Ryan’s relationship in the present, but also glimpses at how they were as
best friends in the past. You wanted
Jamie and Ryan to not only work through what caused them to drift apart all
those years ago but you want these two to be together as a couple; because you
can just tell these two are perfect for one another.
Jamie is straight, or is he?
Well he does have a female friend with benefits that I personally wanted
to vag punch on more than one occasion. Why you may ask? Well it is because I wanted Jamie and Ryan
together, even if Jamie didn’t know at first he would be attracted to guys as
well, and well she was kind of bordering on pathetic and clingy if you ask me. Yep he is Bi but once his eyes are opened I
don’t see him ever going back to the females.
Ryan is the prankster, the one who you can dare to do just about
anything and he would have done it. He
is also the one who I think has the bigger heart of the two, I say this because
he is worried that for Jamie it isn’t what it is for him, finally being with the
man he has been in love with for years.
I loved not only the chemistry these two shared, but the friendship, the
history and the love they had for each other.
And for me that is what will make a relationship stay strong and last,
when it is more than just about the sex (oh hush yeah I know I love me some
sexy times but I am trying to be serious here people) but about a connection
that only grows stronger with time.
The authors did an amazing job in flowing everything so
smoothly that you can’t tell that two authors not just one wrote this. A lot of times you can see the switch up
because the styles aren’t the same or their writing style is different but Ms.
Bowen and Ms. Kennedy did a beautiful job at writing HIM and making this reviewer fall in love with Jamie and Ryan. I hope we get to read more of these authors
working together in the future because these two ladies are two of my
*Although this is the fourth book in
the Lost Kings MC series, Wrath and Trinity’s story can be read first.
That girl fucking owned me the minute I laid eyes on her. At twenty-one years old she already had a cold, calculating wall around her. The walls she built up around herself were designed to keep guys like me away. Underneath her tough girl exterior lay something sweet and vulnerable that I very much wanted to explore.
I had her first.
I fell in love with her.
Then we fucked everything up.
His name should have been lust. Pure, soul-shattering lust was the deadly sin I felt when I looked up—way up—into his ocean blue eyes. I should despise bikers. I should most definitely steer clear of this one, with his thick, muscled arms, and low sensual voice. My normally impeccable self-preservation instinct vanished the minute he walked in the door. Like everything else in my life, I fucked it up. And he’s never going to forgive me.
Old Habits Die Hard.
Wrath and Trinity met when the Lost Kings MC was on shaky ground. After three perfect nights together, Wrath knew she was it for him. But Trinty’s dark past was about to catch up to her and the Lost Kings MC was her only hope for protection. One misunderstanding led to a chain of mistakes that pushed them apart for years. When long-buried secrets are finally revealed, Wrath will stop at nothing to break their bad habits and make Trinity understand—she belongs to him. Author’s note: There is no actual cheating in Tattered on My Sleeve.
Too many times, at least for me this is, I start a series
that I absolutely love from the beginning but slowly start to think that by the
fourth or even fifth book that the writing isn’t the same as what I had fallen
in love with or I just no longer felt that connection a reader feels when they
find an author they really love.
Luckily, Tattered On My Sleeve
had all of the things that made me not only fall in love with this series, but
the author’s way of completely pulling you into the world she is creating and
makes you feel all sorts of emotions.
When I finished this book, it took me a while to not just get my
emotions under control, but to also make sure that my heart was still inside my
body because honestly I didn’t know if it would survive the way Ms. Lake
I do not want to spoil anything about this and don’t worry
if you haven’t read the previous books in the series because this one can be a
standalone. But I am going to take a
minute to give you the *why haven’t you read this series yet and make you feel
guilty for not experiencing it yet* look.
Yeah you over there, you know the look I am giving you, so just go out
and get it already. Be prepared because
you will be on one hell of a ride, one that will leave you tattered and in need
of repair. Honestly I think this is my
favorite of the series as of yet! I can’t
wait to see what else Ms. Lake has in store for us in the future.
Besides his job as enforcer for the Lost Kings MC, Wrath owns a gym. One of the ways he tries to reconcile with Trinity is by asking her to help him prepare for a fight. This is from one of the times they’re working together.
My attention is finally drawn to the papers Trinity has in her hands. “What’s that?” “Oh, it’s nothing. I didn’t realize Jake was already… You asked me to put some stuff together… So never mind.” She folds the papers in half before I snatch them out of her hands. “Ow! Thanks for the paper cuts, asshat.” Jake chuckles and grabs her hands to look them over. I can’t wait to get in the ring with him later and kick his ass while Trinity watches. I’m impressed with what she printed out. I knew she’d be good at this. She’s got a week’s worth of circuit training exercises broken into different ones on each day. Each circuit includes a balance of strength and endurance exercises. I glare at Jake, and he takes the hint to get lost. “You’ve done your homework,” I say, handing the papers back to Trin. The corner of her mouth twitches down in disappointment. “You don’t think it’s any—” “Is that what I said?” I hate snapping at her, but sometimes it’s the only way to get through her self-doubt. “No.” “Where’d you find some of these?” “Are they too advanced for you?” I tilt my head and stare at her. “Seriously?” She chuckles. “Good, then call me when you’re going to try the Front Lever. It looks sexy.” She spins away and heads back to the office.
