Casey Andersson is an ATF Special Agent who leads a double life. When Malik and Iosefa discover her secret—Casey is a submissive and a member of an exclusive BDSM club —they’re determined to learn how to master her.
Trouble is, she’s already being dominated by Master S (aka Ivan Michalov). They don’t know that the Russian Dominant has a secret agenda to claim Casey and keep her. Promising to help find her brother’s killer, Ivan leads her on a dangerous path into the heart of a deadly organization. Can Malik and Iosefa save her from the dark fate that’s already been written out for her or will they be too late?
This second book in the Guarded Hearts Series is a darker PNR shifter romance with potential triggers. MFM ménage written for Ages 18+.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Welcome to the other side of the story compared to book one since the two books happen pretty much at the same time as each other. Yes this means you should read book one first or it will not make total sense. This time we get to follow Casey as does her job. At the same time we are privy to so many of her secrets which our two male leads use to their advantage. When things go South for her while doing a job only her two fated mates can help make everything better. Does contain some really dark scenes at times so be warned. Overall a great suspenseful menage romance. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
