Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows sheâ€™ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldnâ€™t give her. Dominance. Lonely and searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what sheâ€™s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what sheâ€™d find is the one man whoâ€™s long been a source of comfortâ€”and secret longing. Her husbandâ€™s best friend.
Dash has lived in an untenable position for years. In love with his best friendâ€™s wife and unwilling to act on that attraction. Heâ€™d never betray his best friend. And so heâ€™s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.
When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, heâ€™s furious because he thinks she has no idea what sheâ€™s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish herâ€¦love her. And the only man sheâ€™ll ever submit to.
