Shelby Whitman beat cancer several years ago, but the resulting physical and emotional damage left her feeling like less than a real woman. The comfort she found in the BDSM community brightened her world again, however, she kept the Doms at a distance. Play was fine. Relationships were not. And that was fine until Master Parker caught her eye. Now, her cancer has returned and she refuses to be a burden to anyone...especially the one man who has crawled his way into her heart.
Parker Christiansen has craved the perky sub for as long as he can remember, but Shelby has refused to negotiate a scene with him and he has no idea why. When he finds out she is secretly going through chemotherapy, he insists that she move in with him. She needs a Dom to take care of her and he is more than up for the task.
Can Parker convince Shelby that he loves her no matter what and if they only have this time together, they should make the best of it?

book review: 5++ domination stars!!
Master Parker, Master Parker and Master Parker again! Actually, Master Parker in infinity! Give me that hot piece of man and Dom every day and I would be a happy happy woman! Only good things I have to say about this book! But let me find my breath first because I think I lost it somewhere with all this dominance……
Okay, I found it! So, let’s get started!
First, what makes this book a phenomenon is the love story that’s about! Reading Parker – oops sorry! MASTER Parker – and Shelby’s love is one of the greatest things I have read in my bookworm life. It was lovely for me to be a reading witness of that story! It’s irresistible and you can’t walk away from it!
And, how can you really do that when you come face to face with the amazing natural instincts of Parker to protect, take care and fiercely love Shelby? Not possible. Or better Not Negotiable, as Parker would say. Just like it was for him when she needed him the most, even if she didn’t know it.
Shelby needed someone to take care of her, and whether she realized yet or not, he’d just signed up for the job.
So, Master Parker as a born Dom, he took charge of the situation without leaving any space for disagreement from Shelby. And thank god for that!! These two lovers, started as two members of The Covenant – the BDSM club that the sexy Sawyer clan owns, for whoever doesn’t know it -, the one a Dom and the other a submissive, who are secretly in love with each other but never had a chance to show their feelings. Until, a Big C situation forces them to come closer and give them that chance.
At first, Parker – although he wanted other, deeper things from her – only had the intention to take care Shelby and help her beat the cancer that was threatening her life. Because he couldn’t turn his back on the woman that he loved when she was going through that. So, he took completely care of her! But as the time was going by, the nature of their agreement/contract/relationship started to change!
It was time Ms. Shelby Whitman had a full time Dom…. and it was going to be him.
And that’s where the high levels of steaminess and sexy scenes make their appearance. Phew!! Just thinking about it makes me hot and bothered! It was puuurrree joy and pleasure to read these scenes of theirs that they were full of passion, love, worshiping and the crave that a lover has for its other lover’s body. And the chemistry that Shelby and Parks had in – and out – of the bedroom it overwhelmed you in a good way that made you unable to stop reading.
He needed his hands on him when they made love. Play was over and passion had taken its place.
And Samantha knows pretty damn well how to write these kind of scenes and peal layer after layer of this chemistry! You could say she has a degree on it! 😛 Every single time, in every single book of the Trident Security series, she takes the dominance in another level. But, I think it’s only reasonable since she created that outstanding, hot, unique, six-pack ex NAVY Seals boys who you can’t resist!
Damn, that man could kiss. Hot. Wet. Demanding.
As for Shelby, it’s a sweet character and immediately lovable. Also, amazingly courageous and considerate of the others. I was in a total awe of her throughout the whole book and I’m still am. Having to get through cancer twice and this timea lone, it’s not a piece-of-cake kind of thing. I admired her strength and will to maintain her bably shelf and special & energetic personality, independently what she was going through at the same time, just because she didn’t want to upset the others from the club that cared about her and loved her unconditionally. There were many times while I was reading that I came close to tears but I held back.
Cole made her amazing magic spells again and created another great story that worth to be a proud part of the Trident Security family. I really couldn’t ask for a better unfolding for Master Parker and Shelby. Thank you again Samantha for giving us such amazing stories! I can’t wait to read what you have in store for Jake, Brody and Carter! I become a five-year-old girl just imagining it!
