Book 2 Synopsis:
“Five months into their intensely physical and BDSM-laced
relationship, Dylan is ready to make a lifelong commitment to Isabel.
But Isabel has reservations and for good reason as Dylan has continued
to remain secretive and closed off about his past.
When someone from Dylan’s past makes an unwelcome appearance, he is
forced to confront his demons head on as he is threatened with
exposure about his sexual proclivities. More concerning is the threat
of exposure about how his parents’ death rests on his shoulders.
Forced into an awkward situation, Dylan must help the former lover and
ex-submissive who threatens to expose him, all while trying to keep it
a secret from Isa.
Dylan and Isa embark on a new journey as they take vows to never let
anything tear them apart, a journey that tests Isa’s physical and
mental limits as Dylan lets his true Dominant and sadistic nature out,
giving Isa more artistic inspiration than she ever thought possible.
But can Isa keep her own Dominant nature at bay long enough to allow
Dylan to fulfill his sadistic fantasies?
With Isa’s upcoming debut gallery show and just when things are
heating up, their relationship is threatened when Isa comes
face-to-face with Dylan’s past activities with his ex and a woman from
his past who won’t let him go.
To make matters worse, Isa’s father tries to force his way back into
her life and she finds out just how truly cruel he really is as his
secrets are revealed.
With everything that comes to light, can Isa stay true to her vows of
for better or worse?”
Warning: Written for mature audiences and includes profanity, graphic sexual encounters, moderate BDSM themes, total power exchange, and mild edgeplay. (Not for the faint of heart)
The Art of Domination (Book 2) continues Isa and Dylan’s story and delves deeper into their emotional and physical relationship.
“As for this ‘vanilla with a twist’ crap, how do we go about fixing
that?” – Isabel
These characters both carry a lot of baggage, and there are several times in the book that I thought the end was near. Dylan takes certain actions that are very frustrating, but both he and Isa really develop and grow in Book 2. The author continues to thrill us with some deliciously hot sex scenes:
“Yes, Sir, I do. I want what you want,” I say to him…I want this for
Dylan just as much as I want this for myself.”
Even though they are in a D/s relationship, Isabel comes to realize that Dylan also needs taking care of, and this realization adds flavor to the story. The author does a great job of introducing other characters, and exploring their backstories as well.
Along with the deliciously hot sex scenes, there are several unexpected plot twists that will surprise and thrill you. I’m glad I had The Art of Control (Book 3) to read immediately after finishing The Art of Domination!
