Fortune by Annabel Joseph
Finally, a smut book where the girl is neither sweet nor innocent and she doesn't fall deeply head-over-heels in mere days. And that's not to say that the guy isn't a manwhore either, but at least we're not starting from zero in the bedroom with Kat and Ryan. He sees something in Kat that he has to own, and over the course of (thankfully not days or weeks) time, he trains her into submission. [October 2012]
This is a follow-up book to Deep in the Woods, but Fortune can be read as a standalone.
Kat doesn’t know whether or how to end her six-night-a-week party habit, not to mention her unhealthy addiction to meaningless sex. Then an accident lands her in the hospital. She wakes to find a menagerie of origami figures—and a gorgeous neurosurgeon—beside her bed. The complexity of the paper creations is nothing compared to the complexity of dark-eyed, authoritative Ryan, who seems determined to give her life some direction. Trouble is, Kat’s just as determined to resist his efforts to tame her wild side.With persistence, Ryan draws Kat into his world of dominance and submission, where quiet commands and lengths of rope awaken needs and desires she never knew she possessed. But Ryan’s intimate, erotic shibari sessions frighten Kat as much as they excite her, for each simple knot requires infinite trust and inspires complicated emotions.When a family crisis tests their love and threatens to snap the fragile ties that bind them, will fortune ever smile on this unlikely couple, or will fate tear them apart?Reader Advisory: For those who subscribe to a “more the merrier” philosophy (*cough* we do *cough*), this story contains a scintillating m/f/f/m scene.
