Ok there are several things that make this book my favorite, and only one thing that I would have liked to have seen different.

Ms. Brooke lived up to all of my excaptations for ACE....he is one hot alpha male. His demanding personality was just perfect for Hope. She needs a constant to help mellow out her "little" devil side. The sex was scorching, and almost as good was the fact that Hope caught on really quick as to what he was doing and didn't let him get away with it.

I also liked the fact

I usually enjoy a good BDSM book. One of the reasons I like it so much is for the psychological aspect. Why does a person like to be submissive? Why does another like to dominate? It’s an interesting dynamic, and I often enjoy how the author portrays the inner psychological struggle each of the characters experience. One of the other things I love is how intense the relationships are. There is no hiding from each other; everything is laid bare for the other person, desires, fears, and above all

Love a good Leah Brooke story. The "Desire" series is well written and interesting. This one was a bit to long in the back and forth of finally deciding to be together. But that said, I loved the characters. This story is fun, suspenseful, interesting and a real page turner. The characters are awesome. Deep thoughtful feelings, hot sex and romance, and a twist and turn plot. I love how she introduces new characters to this little town of Desire. These stories are wonderful, though this isn't my ...more

There are days that I wish I had more time to read. Especially when I am reading a book as good as this one. I didn't want to put it down and damn if work and husbands didn't get in the way. LOL I think this is my favorite of this series. I loved Ace and Hope. She is such a fun loving brat and he is so very hot and dominate. I can't wait for the next book, hopefully we will find out who is causing all the trouble. I have a whole list of characters I want a story for. If you like Do

I read this book because I was curious as to what "figging" was, having not heard the term before.
Don't think it's something I'll be trying.

This is book #5 in the Desire, OK series. I didn't read the previous four books but Desire, OK is a private little town where pretty much any sexual practice is accepted, specifically menage amour (love between 3 or more) and D/s relationships.

In this book, Hope grew up in Desire, the daughter of her Mother and 3 fathers. She's in love with the town's She

LOVED Ace & Hope, will never be able to look at ginger the same again...will definitely blush next Thanksgiving when I am adding ginger to my pumpkin pies =)

I loved the way Hope would frustrate him, by acting the opposite of what he thought she would, when he would try to push her away. I wish there would have been more of her intentionally pissing him off, sometimes she gave in to easy.

Can't wait for the next story...

The only thing I would like to see a little less of in the series is the a

I AM MINUSING ONE STAR BECAUSE HE DIDN'T PROPOSE. AT ALL. He basically claimed he is her future husband and handed her the ring when she asked about it! You're suppose to get down on your knee, proclaim your love and propose! I don't care if you think she knows or you're a don't but you darn bloody well propose! Romance but no proposal? NOPE.

Okay. My rant aside, I did enjoy Hope's sass and bratty behavior. I like that she drives the always in control Ace crazy. There is also quite a bit of rough

I got a little tired of Ace in this book. He kept trying to fight his attraction to Hope, and trying to deny that they had the same interests when it came to sex. Otherwise, I loved it!
This one missed the mark for me. The bdsm element was weak. He was all 'I am so intense that I will scare her with the darkness of my desires', but in reality there was some spanking and it was all during sex play and some anal stuff. This was all written pretty much in a manner that made it seem very vanilla. The word choices the author used made it seem as if none of the things that the hero did to the heroine challenged her at all. He never pushed her into any sort of 'sub space.' In fact som ...more

Of all the books in this series, this has one of the most frequent anal play and anal sex, and hardcore domination.

It's what Hope and Ace both need and they're a perfect match, even though Ace avoided her any chance he gets. Hope went after him relentlessly until she got want she wants.

There's the usual criminal and Ace is as frustrated as hell the property damage is being done in his town, without catching any suspects. Ms Brooke wrote about it to shake things up. When Hope was run ove

Leah Brooke is one of my favorites. This series is amazing. Who wouldn't want to live in a town like Desire? So she almost always gets 5 stars from me.

That being said, it was great to finally read Ace and Hope's story. I had a feeling from the last book that this was going to be a stubborn journey for both of them. And it definitely was that! So I mentally prepared myself for a rough ride. Ace's refusal to give himself fully to Hope was infuriating at times. But probably what was the most diffic

This book was calling to me so I had to re-read it - I knew I loved it and know I remember why! Hope is a Desire born-and-bred girl, she recently returned to Desire from college and opened Lady Desire with her sister Charity. Hope has been drawn to, obsessed with, in love with, the town Sheriff, Ace Tyler, since she has been old enough to have feelings. Ace has been in Desire since his teen years, when his dad moved him, his two brothers, and his step-mother there. Dad left and got another new w ...more

I didnt liked this book at all, compared to how much i enjoyed the other books of the serie. I was looking foreward to read the story of Ace and Hope but the way he was rejecting her at every step and even worse, Hope's games and antics and whatever else she comes up to get Ace was just too desperate for me...Most of the time I wanted to kick Ace's ass, sorry for the language, and slap Hope thinking that maybe she'll woke up and give him a kick in the ass from me and then flip a finger or someth ...more

My only problem with this book is that they say they will go on a honeymoon when they catch the bad guy. However, since the book ended without them catching the bad guy, and there is generally one bad guy per book, does this mean they will never go on a honeymoon?

Giving this a big 3,5 rounding up to 4.

Ace is all wrong for Hope or so he keeps telling her. Hope had always wanted to be with Ace, he's the One for her. They'll butt heads and whatnot, until Hope gets hit by a truck...

Sexy story, not the best of Desire's series but a fun quick read anyways. On the book 7! :)
BUY THIS BOOK! This is most definitely the best book of the series by far. It is so hot your kindle will melt! I laughed my butt off and enjoyed the steamiest sex scenes I've ever read. I need a sheriff like this in my town!
I'm an easy to please kinda reader so 3 stars.Not that memorable but a light read.

This was a good book for the most part. The only complaint I have about Dark Desire Desire Oklahoma 5 is that the heroine, Hope, keeps saying she wants a BDSM relationship but then does all manner of things that show she knows little about what that means. All the topping from the bottom would annoy the hell out of most Doms and subsequently they would be hesitant to start a relationship with her, I think.

Hope and Ace have been dancing around each other for ages and when they finally meet up explosions happen. With this book it delves a bit deeper into Dom/Sub and taking without safe words and capturing taking. If you are not into this sort of thing I wouldn't suggest reading it. But if u are the way the couple develop to finally getting what both need is great.
Ace is my kind of man!! This has been by far my favourite book in this series. So much more...., okay I have no words. Lets just say the characters in previous books have annoyed me with ere lovey doveyness and there talk of feelings. This was a book of action and oh my what lovely action it was. I hope beau and charity book will live up to this one.
3.5 stars for writing style and keeping my interest to the last page!

Holy smokes, that was some kind of reading. I was warned about the content so I'm not gonna bitch that the author 'surprised' me about what Ace had in his bag for Hope. If this is your thing, let your freak flag fly 'cause I ain't hatin'.

Happy reading folks!

I love this series!!! There is something about a town where women are treasured. Now, we all know its fiction but its great to dream. If your not into kinky sex I wouldn't read these books. But if you are, you'll enjoy this series. Read the books in order to make the stories richer.

Quite possibly one of the hottest Doms ever written. Ace is a formidable character, seeming to jump right off the page, and Ms Brooke created a perfect match for him in the heroine, Hope. The growth of their relationship, sexual and emotional, makes for an awesome story.

LOVED this book! I ADORED Ace's dominance, but I didn't like that she had to pull it out of him. I personally did not believe that it was true to the character, But otherwise. OH MAN!
This story has been a long time coming!! Such a steamy hot read!! I am so ready for more of this series!! Yummilicious!!
