Review from Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews.

Review – One Dom To Love (The Doms of Her Life #1) by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, Isabella LaPearl

The emotions jumped off the page. I was consumed by such an array of feelings; I’m not likely to forget it anytime soon. ~ Guilty Pleasures

Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up
falling for her himself.

Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam’s crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn’t ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself—heart, body, and soul—to Liam?
One Dom to Love by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob and Isabella LaPearl is the beginning of an extraordinary journey into the lives of three passionate people. I was hooked from page one.
Raine Kendall feels alone. Her unrequited love (so she thinks) for Macen “Hammer” Hammerman has her turned inside out. When he cruelly rejects her, Liam O’Neill (Macen’s best friend) steps in to pick her up. Neither man is completely honest about their motives. Raine is vulnerable and is forced to choose between two wonderfully troubled Doms.
When two people, who have denied each other themselves for several years, finally come together – all it can be is EXPLOSIVE. Then add beautiful into the mix. Pain and pleasure, mixed signals, love, denial. There were moments I thought Raine had an easy choice. But the story is so much deeper than that. There were no quick, trouble-free decisions.
The ending was somewhat abrupt. Let me explain though. This is not a short story by any means. I was so into it, I didn’t realize that the end was coming. I can see how Macen, Liam and Raine’s story could not be written in one book. There is so much there. I feel as though Raine has half of her HEA. I’m looking forward to book 2 and seeing how everyone ends up. And maybe book 3 will feature Beck, who I find utterly delicious for some unexplained reason. *winks*
Good writers can write emotion well. It is an important element in any story. There are a few who write it great and it becomes something I remember. Ms. Black, Ms. Jacob, and Ms. LaPearl have hit the great mark with One Dom to Love. The emotions jumped off the page. I was consumed by such an array of feelings; I’m not likely to forget it anytime soon. Wow! What a team these authors make. The good news is that we get more!!
This story is beautifully intense and complex. It’s so deeply emotional that it took me three days to process it and I’m still not done! I loved it. I believe you will too.
