OK here goes... I had to really push myself to even finish this book and that says a lot because I never leave a book unfinished... I was irratated with the story line from pretty much the 2nd chapter on... first thing I found Rickie super obnoxious, bitchy and annoying... and the fact that they were married for 5 years and none of their marital issues were ever discussed is really hard to believe... it's like they didn't even know eachother and even roommates have a better knowledge of the pers ...more

I love how Kristine Cayne is able to make her characters come to life on her pages. She is able to create such depth and emotion in them that you feel invested in their story and cannot help but hope for a HEA for them.

Jamie and Erica have been separated for a while and are trying to fix their failing marriage. Jamie is a firefighter, a dom, and is used to taking charge in every way. Erica is fighting her past and is scared of what it would mean to give up control. Ultimately, both Jamie and Er

Woo! this was a Hawt and sexy book.
After being separated for a year Jamie and Erica are brought back together when an earthquake hits and that's when he decides to introduce her to his "Dom" side which Erica loves but has never told him but the honeymoon is what will make or break them.

The Romance Review

Love ignited after five years of tortured existence is the hope many unhappy couples dream about, especially if it is a shotgun wedding. Jaime is a feisty firefighter sexual Dominant. A blazing hot one-night stand completely changes his life when it ends up with a knocked up woman. Rickie met Jaime in a bar and in the spur of the moment, hooks up with him for some kinky nasty sex. After-morning regrets is never so strong as in this case.

Fast forward five years later and it's a freaking train
This review was originally posted on my blog.

This was a fantastic debut for the author's venture into erotic romance. A heart-warming storyline and scorching hot romance made this impossible to put down.

Jaime and Erica are trying to find their way back to each other and make their marriage work. It's safe to say that an earthquake scared them straight and made them realize that what they have was too important to walk away from. Erica could be really frustrating and annoying at times, but she t

This was so good. This starts off with Rickie and Jamie having a hot one night stand. Then it skips ahead five years later, they are married and were separated and even talked about divorce. Thankfully Jamie and Rickie wont give up so easily. But the main issue it seemed was communication. Geez if that would have just talked and got it all aired out none of them would have suffered.

It seems that Jamie has a very wicked Dom side and Rickie secretly want that but cant express herself. But then se

"One sheep. Two sheep. Jump, fucker! Three sheep."

Jaime and Erica shared one night together "No strings, no expectations, no limits." Erica is younger than Jaime, naive when it comes to sex, but lucky for Erica, Jaime was there to take control. Erica never new sex could be that way, she is shocked and disturbed by how much she liked it.

Yes, this book does have BDSM as it's major content, but it is more than that. This book was mainly about the trust issues in the main character's marriage and working through that issue with the BDSM. I considered the BDSM very light. ...more

Scorching, hot look at a man introducing his wife to BDSM and his full Dom side.

Jamie and Erica were introduced in the prequel to this book Romance in the Rain. I recommend reading that book first.

In the prequel we meet Jamie Caldwell who is part of the Seattle Fire Dept Technical Rescue Team. He has been separated from his wife who wants a divorce. He has been putting off signing the papers cause he doesn't want to lose his daughter. Erica suffers from a lot of issues from her childhood and w

I don't know what I can say about this book that will due it justice, at least in my eyes. But I will tell you this....Kristine Cayne has managed to jump into the erotic romance realm with a couple that are scorching hot, but still have the complex, emotional relationship I've come to love in the stories she writes.

Jamie Caldwell is desperate to put his family back together. He thought he lost Erica, but an earthquake managed to make them both realize they were still desperate for one another. W

Okay, Here is what I liked about this book...

I loved the first chapter that told how they got together. I loved that this erotic book did not rotate around a wealthy man with mommy issues, but rather a firefighter. I loved that Jamie and Rickie were loyal to each other--no cheating even during their separation. I loved that each took responsibility for the problems in their marriage. I loved that both wanted to do whatever it took to make their marriage and family work.

Jamie and Erica's relationship started on the day of their supposed one-night stand. After Erica gets pregnant, they marry. Unfortunately, they don't connect during the course of their marriage as deeply as they did on that fateful night...on the night that Jamie let his inner Dominant out for Erica. Now, they have decided to go on a long-awaited honeymoon in hopes of reviving their marriage and spicing up their sex life.

Okay. No big news. I just love Kristine Cayne. So yep. As soon as this baby came out, I just had read it. And once again she doesn't disappoint :)

Characters, characters, characters. You get it all. The personnality, the love, the insecurities, the romance, the passion, the doubts. Then there's sex, sex, sex. And it reads like you're just watching it (@.@) and in true Kristine style, once again, it's classy and never trashy. And now I want to go to Hawaii, because of the way the landscape is desc

This book was ON FIRE...literally but don't worry Jamie's firefighter training came in very handy!! Hello, Fire Play, nice to meet you! That was a new and exciting scene! I went in to this book thinking it would be all fantastically smutty and meaningless but it actually had a pretty good story to go along with the hotness! Worth a read! Loved it!!

Great book! Finished in just a few days. Kristine is great with setting and description. I was constantly reminded of my own trip to Hawaii while reading this. I could almost feel the sun and the breeze on this very cold January day.
It's a sexy book. BDSM done right. Not raunchy or over done, but romantic and sensual. Love the characters, especially Jamie.

Kristine Cayne does it again, I was hooked from page one and read from start to finish( could be why I was sleepy today;D)...Not only was under Command a great love story but Hot and Steamy as well! The rekindled love between Jamie and Rickie was heartwarming! Under his command was well written and look forward to more books by Kristine Cayne!

Great series and love the characters!!! At first I couldn't understand the disconnect and lack of knowledge between this couple; however, the more I thought about it, I think this is a commonality between most couples!!

I personally don't see fire play as erotic but, then I've never experienced it either. But it didn't do anything for me.

A romantic and erotic story, I loved every moment, its a great story, of love, heros and coming to terms with ones most darkest secrets.
This was a really good story. It shows just what an issue lack of communication and trust can do to a relationship. Fortunately when we come in to the story, Ricki and Jamie and in the process of working things out so we don't see most of the downhill slide...just the uphill battle. :D

Ricki was in college when she met Jamie (he was 6 years older and a firefighter) at a party and they had a one night stand. This might have been the end of it but she ended up pregnant. When she tells Jamie about i

I love when I read a book that completely catches me off guard. I bought this book on Amazon during a promo special and thought it'd be worth a listen during my commute to work. I finished it in two days and am glad I knew nothing about it going in.

If you're reading this, then that's obviously not your situation, so here are some things to know about this sexy, sensual, heart-gripping romance...

Ya, that was awful! So I knew I didn't like BDSM books and it was very clear that's what this was going to be...why did I buy it? Because I read the least favorable review and it said 50 Shades was a better book. I could barely make it through the first three chapters of 50 Shades it was so poorly written, so I figured if that was the reviewers baseline, this might be a pretty good book. I had read Aftershocks and I liked the characters, so even though I knew it was moving into BDSM, I figured g ...more

I'd heard a lot about this book, so I decided to give it a try.

Under His Command is about a firefighter, Jamie, and his wife, Erica. The book opens with the night they met - a one night stand - then fast forwards the readers five years into the future. The two are now married with a young daughter. They are not, however, happily married.

The book centers around Erica embracing Jamie's Dominant side...a side she got a glimpse of that first night, but has rejected ever since.

In `Under His Command' this incredibly talent author acquaint me with her unique ability to capture me as a reader entirely within this deeply erotic tale.

Under His Command is one of those "first in series" books with a prequel novella that really needs to be read first because it has lots of important background. Things are alluded in this book, but it's sort of annoying that the most interesting event in this couple's life happened BEFORE this book.

Jamie and Erica's marriage is in the rocks and they've been separated for a year. Even though they've been married for 5 years, they seem to have no clue about each other. After an earthquake (these a
