When she catches wind of a rumor about the city’s mayor that might just be the hottest story of the decade, she jumps at the opportunity to expose the corrupt mayor and derail his chances at winning a second term. All she has to do is infiltrate a private BDSM club to catch him in the act.

He takes notice of her at one of the scenes and sees something in Felicity that he wants to her to explore. Alistair makes her an offer neither she nor her body can refuse.

 I am going to start this review off by stating what should be obvious, if you've read the description: This book is considered erotica. Erotica means it has scenes of a sexual nature in it, including and not limited to kinky sex such as bondage and sadism/masochism. If you don't like reading graphically detailed, non-vanilla sex, this book is not for you.

Now, for those of you continuing on...

This is D.N. Simmons first erotic novel and wowza does she have some explicit and varied sex scenes in it! From using sounds to canes and bondage tables, each sex scene she presents is unique and doesn't repeat the previous one. If you were looking for an eye opener, this is it. If you think 50 Shades of Grey was kinky, you're about to delve further into the kink.

Felicity Summers is an ambitious young reporter out to unseat the mayor who has been passing and supporting laws of a "moral" nature that directly oppose his secret sex life: he likes to be dominated. Going undercover to expose him with the help of a rich man who wants him unseated, Felicity finds herself in a private sex club where men and women are being whipped, flogged, and fondled until they climax in front of everyone. There she meets the club's owner, Alistair, an upper class Brit who is a dominant. He recognizes the submissive in her and goes about having her make a contract with him. She falls in love with him, but how can there possibly be a relationship outside of sex when she has lied to him about her name, what she was doing in that club, and has kept it from him since? Will Felicity get her story? Will she choose love? Can both happen without annihilating the other?

This book is a good read for those who like erotica. It has a sound plot, good action, and D.N. Simmons' masterful writing that depicts the camaraderie of deep-rooted friendship and companionship. This depiction is what made me love her Knights of the Dark chronicles books. The relationship between Allison and Felicity, best friends and co-workers, made me smile and often laugh. Allison certainly has a mouth on her and likes to just say what she is thinking. I loved when she took Alistair to task unapologetically.  Alistair and Felicity definitely have chemistry and I liked that he was often amused by her sass. And, boy is she sassy! The only detraction to this story is that there were a lot of grammatical mistakes, missing words, and homonym misuse that were distracting. However, my copy was a complimentary review copy and it could be that I had an unedited preliminary version. 

She couldn't take her eyes off of his body, though tastefully clothed in a black buttoned-up shirt, with charcoal-gray flat-front pants and blazer. It wasn't just the outfit that kept her captivated. It was how he wore it. It must have been tailored for him because it seemed to fit him like a glove. Again, she looked up at him and wondered just how tall he was. At five-seven, she wasn't considered short, but he stood at least seven inches taller than her. 
He smiled again and very gently placed his hands on her shoulders. “Just relax,” he said as he turned her back around to face the room. Slowly, he led her with a gentle push further into the room so that she was no longer blocking the doorway. He slid his hands down the length of her arms, taking her hands into his and crossing them over her chest as he held her close to him. She closed her eyes as she felt his powerful chest against her back, breathing in time with her as if they were becoming one. 
“Ah, ah, ah... don't close your eyes,” he whispered into her ear, his lips delicately brushed against her flesh making her shiver with titillation.
Felicity opened her eyes, not even realizing she had closed them. She stared forward, watching the two scenes grow more intense. Now the woman trapped in the swing was lost in complete rapture as her mistress slapped the swollen folds of her pussy with the crop. After a few slaps, she rub the sensitive, inflamed flesh with her fingers as if soothing the sting. The woman in the swing struggled to squirm and it was obvious that she was attempting to press herself closer to her mistress' fingers. Immediately, the mistress pulled her hand away and the whipping continued. 
“Disobedience will not be tolerated. That is the lesson there,” Alistair whispered into Felicity's ear sending tingles down her spine so intense, she quaked again. He chuckled deeply in his chest, and she could feel the vibrations through her back. 
“How is she being disobedient? It isn't like she can do anything?” Felicity asked. She wanted to wrap herself in the scent of this beautiful man who was holding her close. His cologne was intoxicating.. or maybe it was just him? She could no longer tell the difference. 
“She is to remain still, not to seek pleasure yet to be granted. In pressing the matter, she's forced the hand of her mistress to punish her,” Alistair explained. 
The ecstatic moans of the man bound to the cross drew Felicity's attention away from the two women. The man's head was back, lids half parted showing the whites of his eyes. His mouth was agape and his face was serene as if he was in a lovely place that no one there could see. 
“That is what you call magnificent,” Alistair purred. 
Felicity's eyes fluttered, but she managed to keep them open. Just the sound of his voice in her ear was making her lose control of her senses. She had to fight hard to keep herself grounded. She stared intently at the mistress as she continued to spank her male sub, until he quaked, his orgasm jetting across the leather of the contraption he was bound to. Creamy, white rivulets staining the black leather. The mistress ceased the spanking and rubbed his back in soft, gentle circles. She kissed him and whispered things no one could hear into his ear and he nodded slowly. She untied him and he fell to his knees in front of her, wrapping his arms around her waist. She held him so lovingly, as if he was her greatest treasure.
