Blurb: Sergeant Logan Pierce: Head of Houston’s elite SWAT team. He leads his squad with cool efficiency, taking down rough criminals while keeping his team safe. But, behind closed doors, he sets a darker part of himself free. He’s a Dominant in the world of Bondage and Domination. As a Dom, he’s controlled many submissives, but never had one for his own. That’s because there’s only one man he wants: Corporal Clay Foster.

Corporal Clay Foster: Highly trained SWAT officer. He’s always the first one to face the dangerous situations of their job. Over the years, he’d noticed his Sergeant’s secretly admiring glances and suspected his attraction. One night, with one kiss, he’s proven correct. Clay dives headlong into the rough passion of BDSM that Logan introduces him to. He submits to Logan’s control, accepting the sweet shackles that bind him to his Sergeant. But secrets, both his and Logan’s, force him to leave the newfound safety of his Dom’s arms.

Logan refuses to let go of what he’s wanted for so long, Clay as his own, proudly wearing his collar. Clay wants to be his. He knows it and Clay knows it too. Can Logan safely guide Clay through the obstacles that separate them until he can claim his submissive once more?

Review: When I got this book, I was only looking at the fact that they were part of a SWAT team, and then I realized that it was also about a Dom and Sub. I have read a few that were BDSM but not hard-core, so as I continued to read this I realized that this story was pretty hard-core. At first, I wasn’t too sure, what I would think about it but the more I read the more I enjoyed it. I suppose that if you were into that scene it would come off very real to you. I was quite surprised that I found that I truly loved this book. Although like many books, there were parts that made me want to smack someone.

Logan is a Sergeant for the SWAT team. He is also a Dominate. When he served in the military, he was introduced into it and found that he enjoyed it and that it was what he wanted in his life. Like many men, he has made his mistakes but he has always tried to fix what he has done wrong. He has been Clay’s commanding officer for over three years, and from the moment he seen him he wanted him. He was afraid at first at how Clay would take the news about him. He wanted this man enough to try at first to be a normal lover without revealing his secret but in time, he knew that in his heart he had to be who he was. Clay started accepting it till one night when he freaked out and left ending their relationship. Crushing Logan’s heart was what Logan had feared would happen.

Clay had always wanted Logan, even enough to try out the BDSM stuff. He had been an addict to alcohol after his brother’s death. He had eventually cleaned himself up and joined the military. When he got out of the Navy, he ended up at the SWAT team. He had noticed Logan then and had wanted him from the start. When he got together with Logan it was sweet and tender, then Logan had told him about who he really is. At first, Clay was okay with it, till one night he had ended up in subspace. To him it was a high feeling and he was scared that was going to be just like when he was drunk or high from drugs. He started questioning certain things and ended it with Logan.

I hated what Logan went through when Clay ended it with him. The pain he felt was intense for him, however once he realized why Clay ended it he understood. Clay was afraid of the control Logan used even at work but had not realized that it wasn’t the same type of control. He had called him sir without thinking and he thought that was what Logan had wanted. He didn’t truly understand what BDSM meant in the true sense. With the help of friends, he started learning more about the lifestyle. Now all he had to do is make up his mind or completely end it with the man he loved.

I was amazed with this story and how the lifestyle really does come out. How some people love to control in the bedroom and some even outside of the bedroom. Also, how some people need to give up control completely. I was glad that at the ending Clay realizes Logan loves him more than life itself. He also realized that he loved Logan the same way. The sex between them is so hot that it had me turning up the air conditioner. I can guarantee that if you love hot and sexy men, SWAT team members, the BDSM scene with a lot of excitement then this book is one that you will want.
