Blurb: British Agent Drake Steele never thought when he was hired on at the Serious Organized Crime Agency that his job would involve spanking a co-worker. But when the colleague is Lord Robbie Covington, the sexy redheaded computer hacker for SOCA and MI-6, Drake can’t agree fast enough to pop Robbie’s cherry and pull him into the sensual world of BDSM.
Now they are caught up in a web of lies as they pose as members of the jet-setting crowd. Drake and Robbie have to race against the clock to stop a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of all Europe. As their covers begin to fade and danger is closing in, protecting Robbie is Drake’s most important task, but neither man is ready for the moment when their hearts are put on the line.

Review: Well now, the second book on the Dangerous Affairs series was just the same as the first one, and maybe not as good.
I didn’t like it. The erotic scenes were still ok but this time the entire plot felt lacking. The characters were quite odd, we don’t get to know much about them in an entire novel expect from the fact that Drake is a Dom and Robbie, out of nowhere becomes a submissive. And to add insult to injury, Drake is a single tail master, single tail, as in pain dishing Dom and Robbie has never been into a leather club in his life…
Let’s just say that this time this story didn’t work for me. Two agents on a mission that comes from nowhere, no time to get ready, not time to prepare themselves they jump into the heart of a sex-party mansion. They come face to face with other Doms who are challenging Drake for a chance to his sub. They come face to face with mouthy subs who challenge Robbie for a chance to his master, public display and an out of nowhere single tail scene with an untrained sub and in the end they fall in love.
Oh, the reason they were at this sex party in first place, they had a mission, which in my opinion got screwed up the moment they saw each other at their headquarters. This was not an action/suspense story, this was I’m throwing a prop because I want to write hot sex scenes, and yeah, no matter how hot those scenes might be it got old.
The same dramatics as in book one didn’t help for the tiresome feeling that engulfed me this time, plus the frustration with the non-existent plot and oh my God, the end of this story, when the villain was a sadistic Dom who wanted to whip and take Robbie in the gallery? No!
It is safe to say that this book held no appeal to me whatsoever despite the luring single tail action.
