Blake Roberts is falling hard for his old flame and won't stop until Erin is his. He doesn't simply want her body; he wants her submission, her abandon, and the wounded heart she's trying so hard to hide.

He wants all of her and he's pulling out all the stops--in the bedroom and out--until she surrenders.

For Erin, what started as a charade has become all too real. She's nev

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

In part two of this series our two characters are reconnecting and also learning more about each other in a carnal way.

Blake shows Erin that not all Dom's are like her ex-husband, and both realise that perhaps they had never really stopped loving the other.

However the trust is broke and Erin flees. Both end up hurt and feel pain, but for different reasons.

We get another cliff hangar ending and I really cannot wait

5++ STARS!!

Commanding Her Trust is book 2 in Lili Valente’s Under His Command series, the continuation of her amazing telling of the love story between Blake and Erin. Book 2 picks up right where we left off with Erin trying to make her escape from Blake which left us wondering whether or not he would be able to stop her. Well, indeed Erin’s efforts are thwarted and as they both begin to communicate with one another, it becomes apparent that the connection between them remains despite the passag

While on the surface this book is about the relationship between a Dom and sub it is actually much more than that.

Blake is rediscovering feelings for Erin that he thought he had buried deep in his heart and he is quickly changing his mind about their weekend together. He is starting to think that they may be able to make a future together, but does he really know the woman that Erin has grown into?

After 8 years apart Erin never stopped loving Blake, but she has secrets that he may never accept.

I really liked this part. Getting to see Erin and Blake reconnect was sweet. I hate that Blake was a jerk and went behind her back to find out what she is hiding rather than wait for her to explain. I hope he can make it up to her in the next book.

Commanding her Trust starts off right where Controlling her Pleasure the middle of nowhere. Blake needs to get to his cabin so they can relax and talk more about what needs to be done. He doesn't want to feel for Erin but when you have a connection to someone even after 8 years it's hard to let those feelings go. Erin is dead set on not going through with Blake's plan, the tattoo means too much to her future and she wants to hold onto it for her past...

We were left wondering at the end of Controlling Her Pleasure, "Will Erin get away?" No way, if Blake has a say. In Commanding Her Trust, the title says it all. Throughout the book, Blake is trying his hardest to get Erin to trust him. He is still determined to alter her tattoo in order to help sever the tie he has with her, but the more time they spend together, the more Blake starts to fall for Erin again. Erin is determined to get Blake to fall for her again, getting him to let down his guard ...more

Another holding on to the seat of your pants addition to a hot series. Ms. Valente had done an excellent job of writing a book I could not put down.

We start right where we left off, Blake catching Erin before she gets away. Off to the cabin to change that tattoo or not? Love is rekindled until a big secret comes out.  Will they resolve it? Will they part?  I can't wait for the conclusion!

I love that at the start of the book it points out this is a cliffhanger ending.  That saves me from getting

OMG....HOT...HAWT...HOTTEST!! If you enjoyed the novella - you will absolutely LOVE the second book in the Under His Command trilogy. Blake and Erin's love story will not be easy and there is a great cliffhanger at the end of this one too. This series keeps you guessing and the sex just keeps getting hotter and hotter. I am a true fan of Lili's books for LIFE!! You do NOT want to miss out on this series if you enjoy hotness in both your male lead and your romance!! Thanks to the author for a ARC ...more

This Trilogy is so confuse, that the reading rating match with it. Half of readers from book one, didn't come back for the rest of the Trilogy.
It's TMI in so short story.

This a sweet and very spicy book about old lovers who are back in each other’s lives. Blake is a Dom and Erin is Sub. They have a past as they lived in the same foster home years ago. Plans were made back then until Erin left in the middle of the night. Back together again in a cabin in Northern Nevada. Their chemistry is still there and explodes in the hottest way.

I am loving this series. It’s an accurate description of the BDSM community which thrills me. I’ve read some that are rubbish and t

Oooh second-chance romance at it’s finest! These two have SO much chemistry and so much history! Will they be able to trust each other and move on for their HEA?

This book is H-O-T, swoony, and full of anticipation. I am so glad I don’t have to wait for the next book to release (as it already has). Off to the next one!

Holy hot cliffhanger, book lovers! After reading Controlling Her Pleasure by Lili Valente, I could not WAIT to get my hands on Commanding Her Trust, the second book in Lili's Under His Command series. Let me tell you, this book did not disappoint. Talk about off-the-charts hot, this book absolutely scorches. Every single scene is alive with the passion that Blake and Erin have for each other.

Another bump in the road to forever? - 5 stars

This is the second book in the series of Erin and Blake. Just as things start looking like they are going in the right direction, a misunderstanding and lie throws everything into disarray.

We learned more about Erin and her soon to be ex, that she has an infant daughter she is fighting for and that she never stopped loving Blake, even when she ran away the day after his 18th birthday. We still don't know the reasoning for that or where she went afte

Commanding her trust is book #2 in the under his command series. I was gifted a copy to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.

After the first book I was intrigued, I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this instalment.

This book has all the components to be sexy. And it is sexy, but it also has this weird ‘abuse’ undertone. I like Dom/sub books they really float my boat but there’s just something about Blake and Erin’s relationship th

Lili has a unique way of writing with passion, lust, emotion and love. I'm addicted to this series!
Commanding Her Trust starts off where Controlling Her Pleasure left off…Erin trying to run away from Blake in the middle of the woods. Blake has to keep reminding himself why he has brought Erin here. But, Erin has a plan as well. She wants to keep her tattoo, it's her money maker. With love bubbling under the surface, they both assume their roles as Dom and Sub to cover up their feelings. Blake wa

Could it get any hotter?

I didn’t think so but I was wrong. Blake and Erin’s story continues in book two of this three-part serial and it is scorching! The attraction, the love, between the two has not diminished over the years of separation but that time did not stand still for either of them. They both went their very different paths and, given their history, trust is not instantly given. Erin is reluctant to share everything and give in whole-heartedly to Blake though she knows, she feels, tha

This is the second instalment by Lili Valentes series.

Blake and Erin spend more time together in the cabin.

Blake is trying to get Erin to allow him to modify that “ANGEL” tattoo so he can move on. But Erin has other ideas.

Her plan?

To escape.

But realisation hits them both.

The more both Blake and Erin talk the more they come to realize that things between them never really changed.
They are both still very much in love with each other.

In Commanding Her Trust, Blake and Erin pick up where they left off in Controlling Her Pleasure with Erin running half naked into the road to get away from Blake. Erin subsequently decides that she can use her submissive power to try to get Blake to change his mind about altering her tat, and Blake is doing what he can to keep it only D/s and not let emotions come into to play. Neither other these two have any idea just what they are getting themselves into and they seem to forget their plans. B ...more

Amazing follow up to Controlling Her Pleasure! Sometimes when you read a series there is always that *one book* that doesn't quite fit or isn't quite as good...well that is definitely NOT this one!

Even hotter than the first, Lili Valente continues Blake and Erin's story. He now has her up in his cabin in the mountains, intent on erasing the tattoo that is their connection to each other. Little did he know that they would rekindle the love and heat that they had in the past while discovering that

Erin is trying to hide her past and not let Blake in again. She can't handle the rejection. She is realizing that she never stopped loving Blake, but he's different than he was eight years ago. Can she let go of the past and find love with Blake again?

This picks up right where Controlling Her Pleasure left off and gets hotter. Blake and Erin start to reconnect when they thought there was nothing left, but Erin is keeping some secrets from Blake. Though exploring a D/s relationship is intoxicating and bringing them closer then ever, but not everything is at it seems. Misunderstandings cause more trouble like before between these two. I can't wait to see what's next for these two. ...more

Also very good. Blake and Erin discover that they still love each other, and things are going very well. Then Erin overheard Blake asking someone to run an in depth background check. She is so hurt that she runs. Of course he finds her, but not knowing why she ran. His trust is broken.

Ready for the third and final. I want to see them work it all out

I got bored. I didn't feel that attached to the characters, ehem 3rd POV.

It wasn't as interesting anymore, I did like the first book but not much.

When she said that she's got a daughter, I was excited but when she said that she's 11 months old, I think, I was..put off. And she was keeping it a secret to the hero...
