I hardly read BDSM romance because it just isn’t my thing. But I was attracted to the awesome sexy back cover so I decided to request it on NetGalley.
I was really surprised that I enjoyed it. For a BDSM romance, I felt that there wasn’t too much cringe worthy kink (which is what I wanted anyway) but the sexy times is very, very scorching. The first chapter opens up with a BDSM “teaching” scene so it wasn’t too crazy and really made me read more. This story also read very fast and I was able to finish it in one sitting. And I have to emphasize again that there isn’t too scary/crazy kink going on (yes, I like it like that!).
Chloe, the heroine is a PI and met Sawyer (in earlier books, I believe) because Sawyer is friends with her boss. He reached out to his friend when his sister gets brutally attacked and Chloe is assigned to the case. Chloe, now single is trying hard not to fall for the super hot Sawyer.
What really made me enjoy reading this book is that the two main characters, Chloe and Sawyer were really awesome together. I liked the balance that these two opposites had: Sawyer, the jaded alpha male and Chloe, the naive sub. I also liked that despite being the Alpha, Sawyer was very considerate towards Chloe in introducing her to the lifestyle. He isn’t the typical alpha, I have to tell you that.
The story is fast paced, with not a lot of extra subplots which was perfect!
4 hearts for Commanded and I am definitely going to read the other 5 books in the series!
