Still Taking Chances
Red Sage Publishing
After a mission in a South American jungle goes wrong, DEA Agent Elgin ‘Hud’ Huddleston returns to his boyhood home to lick his wounds. Despite his better judgment, Hud is drawn to the woman across the street, a petite Dominatrix with a freeze your balls off name.
Mary Beth Winters packed away her toys and put the BDSM lifestyle behind her years ago when she realized the men she dominated didn’t need her as much as she needed them. But when a troubled bad-boy, Elgin ‘Hud’ Huddleston, moves in across the street, she dusts off her toy box and risks her heart to help him heal.
I have read my fair share of D/s more so lately then previously. This however is the first book I have read with a male sub. And obviously I have been missing out on a whole other world of romance.
But let's be realistic to start off with. Enter Hud, the heartsick, angsty hero who gets sent home after a mission turned bad. Even with his gruff and rudeness you can instantly see the sad little boy underneath it all. This same little boy brings out Mary Beth's Domme that she had stored away in a box. One of the things I liked most about this particular D/s relationship was watching Hud's walls break down one by one even as he fought it. My only wish is that we had learned a little more about Mary Beth and why she became the Domme. Overall excellent read!!!
