A short, wonderfully erotic and pant worthy read by Malia Mallory. One that left me wanting much more of what would come of the lives of Tabitha and Marcus. Anyone that enjoys a quick and satisfying erotic read will find His Need, Her Desire very enjoyable :)

Tabitha is all set to go on a long awaited vacation to the beautiful Hawaii. All set to go and meet up with her good friend to have some fun in the sun in the sand only to be disappointed once she arrives and finds out her friend was unable

Tabitha tacks a vacation to hawaii. She arrives to find out her friend bailed on her. Later on she spots this gorgeous guy and he keeps popping up until they actually meet. Then the sparks fly and things heat up in Hawaii for Tabitha. However Marcus doesn't know if she can give him what he needs.

If the title of the books didn't give it away... these two give it a shot. He needs to be in control, and she desires him and his dominace.

A quick read that left me wanting more and more. I didn’t know quite what to expect when I started this book except for some loving between some rich guy and a woman, but I knew that being a Malia Mallory read meant it was going to be good.

Marcus comes across as a classy, genuine guy, not a snobby rich guy or over the top dominant male which can really ruin a read and make it unenjoyable. He takes his time with Tabitha, making sure she knows what she is getting into beforehand and that she is c

His Need Her Desire, written by Malia Mallory, is a short story about Tabitha Quinn who sets out on a Hawaiian vacation. While not expecting anything to happen other than the typical tourist type activities, Tabitha finds herself wrapped up in a whirlwind of emotions, unknown desires and none to typical sex with a billionaire businessman by the name of Marcus Granger.

Being the first in a series , His Need Her Desire sets the stage for a wonderful quick read that leads well into the second story

Cumulative review of all four books 3.5 out of 5 Licks

I rather enjoyed the Dominating series by Malia Mallory and read all four of them in one weekend. I gave the overall series a 3.5 instead of the 4 I was leaning towards on the kitty licking scale because the transitions between books and scenes were a bit clunky. Not enough to prevent me from reading because the story line was intriguing and the characters interesting and well thought out. Th

Who wouldn’t want to be swept off their feet by a gorgeous billionaire in the most romantic location in the world? Tabitha experienced all that and more in Malia Mallory’s HIS NEED, HER DESIRE. As a reader, I found myself contemplating two main things as I read this quick, steamy read:

1) Why are hot vacation flings something I’ve only read about? I purposely studied abroad in college with the hope that something like Tabitha’s experience would happen to me and all I came back with was an A in G

The temperature isn't the only thing that's hot in Hawaii.

Mallory has written a steamy erotic romance that fulfills many a woman's fantasy. A single girl's tropical vacation and a chance meeting with a handsome, wealthy man. As if that isn't enough, there's undeniable chemistry and fantastic kinky sex.

I enjoyed accompanying Tabitha on her dream vacay. Even before she meets Marcus, she has some pretty sexy scenes all on her own! Marcus is a pe

I think I've mentioned this before but Malia Mallory seems incapable of writing bad erotic romance! And His Need, Her Desire is one hot bdsm story added to her his one great reads! I've been off bdsm genre for a while now, I think I read few bad ones that put me off - but Ms. Mallory turned that around and I read this and the sequel up in record time. Tabitha's story of finding love and a man who rocks her world is surprisingly sweet for such a blazing hot erotic romance!

This is the first book in series. I really enjoyed the story. The characters were very interesting. I like the idea it was a vacation that turned out to be romance between Tabitha and Marcus. I can ' t wait to start the second book in the series.

cover: I loved the cover, it really drew me to the book!

characters: Heroine, she was ready to try new things, but at the same time to jump into a situation that she seems to know something, she should have questioned it more.
Hero: He seemed to be an experienced Dom, so he should have explained the steps better and set rules.

This was a short story that I read in about an hour. It was good enough as far as short stories go, though I was a bit underwhelmed by the romantic element. For this to supposedly be "erotica", it was quite tame. The "SPICY" factor just wasn't there, and that was kind of why I picked this story to review.

The story wasn't long enough to truly develop the characters, Tabitha and Marcus, but from what I got to read of them, they were characters I could see myself wanting to follow through the serie

Sizzling & Thrilling!

Awesome short novella with characters who draw you in immediately with their sexual prowl. Tabitha's sexual desire stays inflamed with just thoughts but when the temptation becomes reality, she explodes and discovers a side of herself she didn't realize exist. Sexy Marcus's character will have you catching your breath with his dominant demeanor and powerful luring demand. The blind trust Tabitha gives Marcus is thrilling and exciting as he takes her to higher sexual plea

This story wasn't bad but it wasn't outstanding either.

I feel the word Dominating in the title is a tad misleading. Sure he restrains her with silk ties and drips a bit of wax on her, but it read more like 'kink' than 'Domination.'

The main character gave her a collar after their first night of 'kinky' sex, which is another reason I didn't rate it higher. Who Collars someone they barely know, and on the flip side what female lets a guy she barely knows tie her up? I know it is fiction, but stil
