– Detective Sam Roberts
Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand.
Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.
Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him.
But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

Review: Each book in the Cuffs, Collars and Love collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Christa shows how difficult the BDSM scene is if you really don’t know much about it. I have never really gotten into the BDSM scene but this story is amazing. It caught my attention from the moment I started eating and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story.
I had a few problems with the story that had me trying to figure things out. It didn’t really do the story justice. My main thing was the slapping, spanking yes but to slap someone is just wrong.
Ryan was a pain in the ass in the first book. He had been a sub for Logan and wanted to be his permanent sub, but Logan had chosen another. So he had done quite a bit to break them up and even outed them. All he wanted was to belong to someone. He is a strong cop but comes off weak to me. He whines about crap and pushes, kisses ass and that drove me nuts. However it is also shows me that he definitely needs to have a stronger partner.
Sam has watched Ryan break down to a point he knew he could help him. However he only wanted to help him, but he didn’t want him forever. Slowly through time though he changes his mind, but can he get Ryan to let go. I loved watching him win Ryan over.
Now like I said at first he didn’t want him forever and it made me wonder why Ryan would give him a chance. Ryan just wants to belong to someone so it didn’t make much sense to start with Sam. However I was glad that they both took a chance.
Christa is an amazing author and has a great gift at giving me a story that intrigues me and keeps me captivated. I loved the serious tone to it, but there is some humor in it but just a bit. I really enjoyed the story and can’t wait to see what is next.
I would definitely recommend this story especially if you love sexy men with a badge and a gun.
