Bella Massey loved hanging out with the ladies at the nursing home despite the knowledge that somehow the nonagenarians she loved were cheating regularly at their weekly poker games.  When the paramedics came through on a trial run she could only think of the naughty games she would rather play with the sexy man with the stethoscope instead.  She wanted to lick and nibble her way down to his ass among other things; which surprisingly or rather not so much surprisingly was a suggestion that the ladies were quick to suggest for their librarian friend.

Marcus Aiello hadn’t been looking to get involved with anyone after the disaster with his former fiancé but there was something about the sexy curvy woman playing cards with the seniors that he wasn’t ready to pass on.  And were those same seniors checking out his ass?  He was just getting his life back in order but he couldn’t pass up a chance to get to know her better even if it was just as a friend.

Getting involved with a woman who wanted to take charge WAS what he truly desired but especially after his last relationship and the blow up with his fiancé he needed to take baby steps and keep it on the down-low.  He knew what he wanted and despite the desire to submit he needed to take control at times too.  Finding a woman to fill both of those needs was going to be hard.  Switching between sub and Dom was where he was comfortable at but he wasn’t the only one with scars from a previous relationship that molded him.  Bella wanted to take a chance on Marcus but allowing another man to dominate her was more than she was ready for right now, maybe forever.  A life changing accident pushes Marcus into taking the next step but getting her to switch to a give and take relationship might break up his chances with Bella before they can discover the pleasures of a give and take relationship full of sexual pleasures and a shared love neither expected to find.

Wow.  This one was smoking hot.  Bella was adventurous, smart and sassy.  Marcus was sexy, strong and brave for following his desires to find the perfect woman for him.  I loved that this tied into another novella I recently read with a secret B(ondage) & B(reakfast) that catered to their lifestyle and the hint that more could come from this series.  I loved that the need for Marcus to be submissive was brought to life in such a compelling and interesting way. He was real.  He was this alpha on the outside but beta on the inside.  Bella was a wonderful character that worked past the scar tissue on her heart and found a way to make things work with Marcus that they both could accept.  Check this one out and pick up The Theory of Attraction from Carina Press for another couples visit to the fantasy B & B.
