Excellent - great relationship, loved the bondage BDSM, handled the inter-racial pieces just seamlessly (note: I hate books that throw a bunch of stereotypes into an IR -- and this one doesn't do that).

Lots of bondage, moderate pain (she enjoys it and finds it centering). Good story - mis-communication but not overly done. My friend Becca will like the discipline/punishment conversation at the end and I recommend it too. First time I've seen it handled that way - and I would give an extra star f

The Romance Review

Mine is the 2nd review
Oasis is a small family-owned company where people's jobs are to bring sexual fantasies to life. They even hire project managers to run the teams working on the details of the client's fantasy. Where do I send my resume? I'm a project manager who is also a switch in every sense of the word. To actually have a Dom or Domme boss and take me to task when I've been "bad" is a naughty dirty fantasy of mine.

In this story, Lydia from Michigan interviews for a position at the

This story was just what I needed. Two strong adults without dreadful childhoods getting together and falling in love - with some great kinky fun along the way. I have mixed feelings about the driving misunderstanding from Wilder's and Lydia's first meeting 8 years in the past, but it was plausible and also gave motivation for many of their present day actions. At my pickiest, I have a hard time believing that they would make the assumptions they did without considering other possibilities, but ...more

That was so, so good! This is a second chance romance between an interracial couple that is real, and doesn't follow any stereotypes. It is refreshing, sweet, sad, hopeful, and determined, as our main couple tries to fight their attraction to each other, and fail. How they try and fight their nature, and fail. They try and fight themselves, and each other, and their friends, and they fail. They finally speak to each other, and the sun comes out as dawning realization washes over them, and it is ...more

WANTING WILDER is the first book in the Safeword: Oasis series. Each story will stand on its own, but I recommend reading them in the listed order. This first story is a second-chance romance and is stunning.

Is it bad that I was humming Willie Wonka’s Pure Imagination song while deliciously devising my own wish to be submitted to Oasis, Inc.? Yes? No? We’ll keep that our own little secret, okay. Let me just say that Oasis probably wouldn’t exist as a real work place, but it is a great fantasy, j

He asked after his last submissive left if there was anyone else that want to join him. Bridget was the first up and then Lydia but a new Dom took over. Lydia had a short fling with Wilder the guy who introduced her to the lifestyle but then

Thanks so much to Booksprout for a look and this is my opinion. I also own a paper copy since I have an actual shelf for this author! Second chance romances are a personal favorite of mine. Mix in some BDSM and some wish fulfillment and I’m sold.

What did I like? Second chance...love them. Lydia spent the weekend getting charmed by Wilder and eight years later she is still looking for a Dom to fill his role. A new job brings them back together and a new role allows them to explore the wish Lydi

I have read many of this author’s books and enjoyed the series set in Security and FBI. This one, wasn’t as much to my taste but an enjoyable read none the less. So it starts with Lydia, moving to another state to start a new job. This is where l lost my link to the story. So, Oasis is a dream fulfilment company? She is to join a team, vetting customers and setting up scenes within the BDMS lifestyle. But at the start of her job she has to have her own wish granted as part of an induction with h ...more

Loved this book, great storyline in this hot BDSM romance which proves that misunderstandings can have far reaching consequences and communication is very important in any relationship but even more in a d/s relationship. The story was well written, the characters were well developed, had strong chemistry while trying to figure each other out in this romantic tale of fated 2nd chance BDSM romance, I was hooked from the start, through the ups and downs, to the happy ever after ending.

I love the way Michele Zurlo writes. Her characters are always interesting, her stories draw you in and first fascinate and then satisfy. He books do contain bdsm but at heart they are about relationships which is what a good book about bdsm should be about. Too often I read books about this topic that are thinly disguised excuses for raunchy sex scenes or are so far from real kink that they are just annoying. If you like reading books about kink then you won’t go wrong with any of her work.

Our couple has a past, but things did not work out. Now our heroine takes a job at his organization and a new chance arises.

This is book one of the series.

This is a second change romance with a D/S theme. The story is well written and easy to read with two amazing characters. Each has their own baggage to deal with and that gives us the crux of our story. I loved watching our couple face their issues and the resulting chemistry between them. Overall, a very enjoyable read.

Highly recommended.

Lydia was introduced and fell in love with bsmd on springbreak eight years ago. Her unexpected encounter with dom Wilder was memberable. It gave here a desire to seek a profession giving others what she felt. When she is hired by Oasis a company that deals in wishes she is excited. That is till she finds that her unforgettable dom is in charge of her orientation. Neither have forgotten the other but Wilder wants her to desire what they had again. Lydia must learn to trust him again.

I've read a lot of books written by Michele Zurlo; she has done an excellent job at writing a good book; she is one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

Now Olivia has been hired to work at Oasis and all employees must make a wish. When her wish is being fulfilled by Wilder will they be able to walk away from each other again?

Wilder and Lydia met 8 years ago during Spring Break in Florida... they enjoyed a weekend of D/s fun .. and just when things were starting to get real.. Wilder just up and left without a word and left Lydia heartbroken..

Wilder had to rush home for a family emergency all those years ago.. why hadn't Lydia called? She must not have been that into him.. or was it all just a big miscommunication?

Michele Zurlo does it again! Love every word she types. :)

I was intrigued by the cover; this is a new genre. I was not sure what to expect; but underneath it all love does win out. There was intrigue, mystery, love, play acting ( I think that’s the correct terminology), and real emotions.

Book 1 in the Oasis series and yep hooked. I love a second chance romance. It’s the tension and the lingering longing each feel for each other. Wanting Wilder has that in spades along with scorching BDSM scenes. I enjoy when books that are second chances have flashbacks that flow with the story and this one did that beautifully. This is a series that I will definitely be continuing.
