Connelly is shocked at just how much she enjoys being dominated, spanked and jeez, even shared. She needs to be careful because Nathan is

Nathan Delacroix is a surprised when his favorite author comes to him for a BDSM perspective on her newest book. Not only is she a woman, but he finds himself growing more and more attracted to her and the unexplainable connection he feels. Toss in a serial killer, psychic abilities, a secret masochist, a twin brother, an FBI agent, a little foursome action between them all and a lot of hot ho

This story was very enjoyable. While Nathan did push all of Connelly's boundaries you could tell that she was into it. Some of the BDSM elememts were not my cup of tea but it did not detract from my enjoyment of the book. I did like this couple. The one thing I really appreciated is how there was sponatuity between the couple. So many times there is too much structure and too many rules in the BDSM books and all their life revolves about the lifestyle. This one had a plot and you really got to k ...more

I very much enjoyed reading this story. Nathan Delacroix was introduced in the first book of the series and he did not disappoint as the hero in this book. I loved that the author chose to make the heroine in this story a mature woman. She's still under 40 but not by much. Connelly was a great match for the sadist. ...more

Wow! Just Wow! I thought "Topping the Dom" was good! I liked Nathan even in the it, but OMG! He's so, so, so.... (fanning my face).
Nathan is worried about Connely, an author who in researching the BDSM world! He takes her under his wing to show her the ropes, so to speak! He's been having visions and he's not sure who they are about. This is a MUST read even if you've never read the first book!

Hearts on Fire Review

Original Review Published here:

Nathan Delacroix is skilled BDSM Master who is also psychic that helps the FBI solve certain types of cases. He does not want anyone to know he is psychic that does not have to know. Nathan is likeable man and Dom. He is a kind and thoughtful man who will do what is necessary to protect and help those around him. He meets his favorite thriller author only to find out that she is not who he expected.

Wow, what a great find.

What a good book. I had a soft side for this Dom from the beginning, when we were introduced to him in book one of the Crime and Punishment Series. I was so glad to read he had his own book!
What to say about Master Nathan Delacroix. He's super sexy, handsome, can read minds, a Dom, and oh yeah he's a sadist. Do I need to say more. I mean the man makes being a sadist sexy.
Connelly is pretty and an author who has no idea she's a masochist. Her book brings her to Club Fetish

MERCY!!!! What else could I possibly say. This book has you "feeling" so much. I could not get enough of Master Delacroix.

Story line was very strong and the characters grow as the story grows. Love these characters. Trista Ann has a definite winner on her hands. I think I might need several cold showers before the next in the series, Theirs to Share (Crime and Punishment Book 3). Or maybe my hubby will just be wanting me to read more.

I am a huge fan of the Dom books, especially stories that have a sinister, suspenseful side. Michaels books include everything for the BDSM lovers, as well as the murder mystery lovers. She is a fantastic story teller, with a great eye for details pertaining to her characters, the plot and always leaving the reader with an HEA.

4.5 Stars.

Very good follow-up to the first book, though it is about a different set of characters. Loved Nathan and Connelly's story. There is a bit of suspense in the story which I wish would have been explored a little more, but the story was still very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to Josh & Daniels stories.

A little more sadist but not too hardcore. She wants him. Needs him. He needs her submission and love of pain.

“You realize I’m probably not going to be able to walk tomorrow,” she grumbled. Nathan shook his head, but she didn’t miss the spark of humor in his gaze before he lowered it briefly. “That’s what you get for being difficult to a Dom with a big dick.” 0 likes
