She'd never required someone for her next breath the way she did Logan in that moment. God, she'd been hoping to bring them both closure, but now he felt like a part of her... so necessary to her existence.
Finally! Finally!! I was beginning to think it would never happen in the Wicked Lovers series, but Shayla Black finally gave me a heroine who was completely and totally worthy of the hero! Sure, Tara had her moments of insecurity and doubt, but she didn’t have those gawd awful annoying, “I

Despite the heavy BDSM theme (not really my cuppa), I rather enjoyed this book--especially after they left the hero's 'dungeon' (or training room).

Logan Edgington is a Navy SEAL on leave for a few weeks. While on leave he likes to spend time at Dallas's private BDSM club, Dominion. He's a Dom and he likes his women submissive. Logan hasn't had sex for the last 5 years--he's been hung up over his high school love Tara (or "Cherry", as he likes to call her). So while he may be 'playing' at Club Do

3 -4 stars – BDSM/Erotic Romantic Suspense

I’m really disappointed to say this, but the Wicked Lovers series has fizzled out a bit and lost some steam with me. Although I liked this and it’s infinitely better than Surrender to Me, it still wasn’t near the level of the first two books, Wicked Ties and Decadent. Or maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood for it? Hmmm...not sure, but here are some random thoughts.

5++ stars!

With an opening line such as this, I knew that Logan would capture my heart.

THWACK! Logan Edgington smacked the submissive’s reddening ass in time with the dark beat of the old-school Depeche Mode tunes pounding through his dungeon at Club Dominion. Clenching his jaw, he curled his palm into a fist, ten shook out the sting.

When we last saw Logan in Surrender to Me, he was the tortured younger brother of Hunter, the one with the sexual hang ups. During five years of self-imposed celibac

Sensual. Erotic. Sinful. Wicked. This book is all that and then some. Ms. Black met and exceeded all my expectations of Logan Edgington (a.k.a. MY future husband)! And let me tell you, they were pretty high.

From the first page this book grabbed my attention and didn't lose it. Well, with the occasional required break for food or sleep that is. But of course, even then, all I could think about was Logan; all I would dream about was Logan. And how could I

Very dissapointed with this book. It's books like this, that give woman the false impression that anyone can be a Dom. Doms are different men. Cant write for female doms. But Logan even though he has ten years experience, needed to step back on this one. What he went through is actually true, not all doms have sex with there subs. Its about alot more then sex.

He thought the entire time with his dick. Doms do not. Doms are men who study and have studied woman for many years. Almost an obsession.

OMG, I Loved, Loved, Loved this story. I must admit that the only other book in this series that I really liked was Wicked Ties and I loved Jack. In my opinion, this book and Logan tie with it.
Logan was just so in love with Tara and my heart broke for him at what he had to do to protect her. What a sweet man.
My only complaint would be that Tara took too long to trust and believe Logan. I know she had been hurt but come on, he told you why. She was too wishy-washy. Why does SB make her heroine's

From page one, I knew this was going to be a hot, wild ride. Maybe it was the “thwack” of Logan’s well-trained hand on the posterior of a willing submissive or my favorite group, Depeche Mode, playing in the background. Whatever the case may be, this book did not disappoint.
Fade in to Logan Edgington, the sexy Navy Seal brother of Hunter and Kimber, putting his best Dom moves on a willing subject. While Logan prides himself in being the ultimate Dom, he still has problems totally committing to a

Lauren (The Novel Lush)
The romance aspects were really pretty good, but the thriller/mystery bit was a bit hard to swallow and at the end the big reveal came off as a big huge reach.

Some minor complaints with the BDSM parts:

There were also some bits with the power exchange aspect that weren't handled very well. There was no discussion of limits, or explaining what he was going to do first. At one point the MC invited another another male in on the scene without having ever asked if it was okay or warning her first and

First, let me start with what was good. There's no doubt Shayla Black is a decent, I'll even say good writer. Her books flow pretty well, and she writes some of the best and steamiest sex scenes that just about set the whole book on fire. It's why I want to read her, the erotica is sexy as hell and it seems she knows her stuff when it comes to the lifestyle (I couldn't say otherwise, not knowing anything really about it).

**2.5 stars**

The sexy parts in this book were really hot and I liked the relationship - Logan yearning for her for years and I thought Tara had a right to despise him. However, the suspense plot was so ridiculously over the top that I can't, in all conscience, rate it higher.

In Belong to Me, the characters have to deal with TWO threats: the murderer of Logan's mother who doesn't want Logan and Tara to be together plus the sex-slave ring that Tara is trying to infiltrate by learning how to be a s

I seem to be having more trouble than usual reading and enjoying these very far-fetched storylines. It's certainly a hot and sexy book, but the plot really killed it for me.

Everything in her responded to him. Together, they strained for more pleasure, two halves of a whole both aching for something desperately that they could only get from the other.

We open in the middle of a scene at the BDSM club, Dominion, with Logan in all his Dom glory. We find out fast that he gives the sub’s what they need, but brings in his friend Xavier to finish the scene. He hasn’t had sex in years and all because of one woman he can’t stop lovin

Brilliant! Drop every thing! Run to your favorite bookstore and grab a copy. BELONG TO ME does not dissapoint!

BELONG TO ME by New York Times bestselling author Shayla Black recently released by Berkley Heat is one erotic adrenaline thrill ride. It was almost more than this reader could take. Trying to catch my breath to absorb every erotic and titillating moment that this creative writer gives her legions of fans an extremely hot a sensual engaging read I could not have adored this book more.

While i'm no stranger to BDSM story, I cannot say that I am a fan of such theme. Most of the time I find the relationship between the characters tiring, or the storyline has no, well, much of a storyline, to be honest.

I went into this with the same expectation. But much to my surprise, Belong to Me come with a solid storyline. Yes, the sex was smoking but it wasn't all spank and no life. And much to my delight as well, I don't find the characters annoying. And what surprises me even more is I f

Logan Edgington, when on leave from serving as a Navy Seal, is a Dominant at BDSM Club Dominion teaching discipline to the more difficult Submissives in attendance. He uses his professionally trained emotional disconnect not only in the field but also in the dungeon. The club is basically the essence of Logan’s hollow, empty sex life. Choosing to impose a self-induced five-year celibacy, his only sexual desire/release comes from the thrill of control as a Dom and the fantasies he still has of hi

I really wanted to like this book more, but I found the storyline was unoriginal, the main characters uninspiring, and the antagonist predictable. Alas, all is not lost Dear Reader, as Ms. Black does an admirable job of whetting your appetite for the BDSM lifestyle.

No doubt about those Edgington boys, they are nothing if not delectable. I loved Hunter but I adored Logan. I thoroughly enjoy this series because it's edgier than vanilla yet retains a good vibe about it and it is so well written. Logan is a dom with a heart and boy did he wear his romantic nature on his sleeve as far as his "Cherry" was concerned. He was not afraid to bear his feelings whilst retaining his strong manly nature, an attractive combination. The talk during

Tara and Logan

3.5 start
This was a pretty good book. It was much better than the last book in this series. At least Tara seemed to have a choice in what happened to her.

I loved the first 50% of the book. What kept me from giving this a higher score was Tara's attitude once they got to the club. The FBI had profiled Tara as a submissive and while I don't think that means she has to be a doormat the pattern that Black creates with her heroines can get a little old. They are submissive during sex bu

While starting this book I was praying to the book gods that it wouldn't be like Hunters book. Well, surprise it wasn't. It was so much better.

Loan and Tara were high school sweethearts but when a murder happens the night Tara gives him all of her things between the couple come to an end to save lives. Now 12 years later Tara is an outstanding FBI agent on a mission to save her fellow agent and friend.

Logan is a Seal on leave and he returns to what makes him feel somewhat complete Club Dominion.

Review by Jen: I've been following Shayla's career for a couple years now. And while I have a couple of her early Wicked Lovers books sitting on my shelves, they've gone unread as of yet. So, when I talked with Shayla's assistant about a guest spot on the blog, I was offered an ARC of Belong to Me. Well, who's going to turn down an ARC? Not me.

Word of warning. This book is HOT and pushes some boundaries. If you don't like to read about domination in the bedroom, this book is not for you. This st

Well I must say that the D/s parts of this book were hot, and I mean steaming...steaming...steaming HOT!!!, but the story line of this book was the same old, same old... predictable and boring.

I hate to say it but it seems that is becoming a trend that many authors are falling into, except Cherise Sinclair, that one, or both, the hero and heroine are some kind Navy Seal, Military personnel or Law Inforcement agent investigating some kind of international crime like drug running or white slavery

Shayla is so wickedly talented. I so LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Logan and Tara's story. Logan has been my favorite so far in Shayla's Wicked Lovers Series (although I really am digging Xander (bk7) and can't wait for Tyler's book (bk6)). Shayla does a great job of taking this tough talking Dom and showing us just how vulnerable he really is. How when given a chance to be close to the woman he loves with all his heart and soul again. Logan will stop at nothing to make her his once and for all.
